Elena Belik came fourth in our Formula FX contest with a 524% return in just a week. This isn’t the first time that a woman has broken into our rating of Forex traders. We just had to ask her a few questions:
Elena, How long have you been trading? Tell us a little about how it all began?
I’ve been trading for over four years now. I learned about it when I met with my husband. Having seen how well he was doing, I became interested and wanted to give it a try. He taught me everything and I poured over the literature to hone my skills. At first, of course, I began trading on a demo account before moving to a live account. I have to say, it didn’t all click at once for me, but I’m happy with the result today!
Can you tell us what made you take part in the contest and whether doing so interfered with your usual trading?
I decided to take part for my own competitive interest and for myself. Nothing more. It didn’t interfere with my usual trading: I continued trading as usual and didn’t really chase after a prize-winning position. However, to receive a prize is always nice.
What do you do in life, apart from Forex?
I don’t do anything other than Forex. Today it is my only job, or as I like to see it: my profession.
There are all the more women appearing in our Forex ratings, Ñould you comment on this a little?
In the modern era, more and more women want to be independent and earn enough to support themselves, whilst having a flexible work schedule and devoting enough time to family life. Trading Forex does all of this, turning wishes into reality.
We would like to wish Elena the best in her further achievements and pass other significant financial milestones!
