Gennady Karpov (I place)

How long have you been trading on Forex? How did you start your way of a Forex trader?

I have been trading on Forex over 6 years already.  I tried to earn in Internet in different ways: via clicks, registration and other stuff. For a long time I did not pay any attention to Forex trading advertisements, but finally I decided to try. I visited a broker's website, downloaded its trading terminal and opened a demo-account for 100 000 USD. I started my trading with USDJPY and opened my first order for 10 lots at once. In a half an hour I already earned 2000 USD! I realized that I found out a place where I could earn real money! Soon after that I opened a real cent account and made my first 10 USD deposit via WebMoney. I must say that I lost all this funds at once. This lesson taught me that there are no earnings without knowledge. I downloaded many books about Forex trading from Internet and studied it carefully. Only after that I started to earn stably. I still trade on Forex and earn for living here.

What currency pairs do you prefer to trade on? Why?
I trade on EURUSD, NZDUSD, EURJPY, GBPJPY preferably. In my opinion these are the currency pairs with the highest volatility. I studied them a lot during the last years.  
  
What are your impressions of participating in “999” FBS Demo-Contest?
This is a great contest! The best thing in it is no restriction in trading! Many brokers make restrictions for order volume, number of orders, etc. I do not like it.
The only thing I would suggest FBS is to abolish a restriction on 10 lots maximum order volume. This would be brilliant! For example, I was opening up to 500 lots at once and it was very tiresomely for me to open 50 orders and set Stop Loss and Take Profit for all of them.

    
What trading strategy did you use in “999” Demo-Contest?What helped you to take the right trading decisions?
I tried a lot of strategies, but stopped on intuitive trading. Like Curtis Faith I consider intuitive trading the highest skill of a trader. 

What characters a trader should have to become successful on Forex market in your opinion?
Patience, presence of mind, discipline! 

What would you advise new Forex traders?
Good luck! If to say in Lenin style: Trade, trade and trade again!
