Two trades to victory: Interview with the Drag Trade winner

11 February, 2016

Self-discipline and accurate market assessment. That’s what it takes to enter the hall of fame of the fastest demo-contest Grand Capital has to offer – “Drag Trade”. Trader from Russia Andrey Smolin proved that he deserves the first place beating all the other contestants in round 301. Read the interview to find out how:

Once again, congratulations to the winner!

How long have you been trading with Grand Capital and what Grand Capital services do you use most often?

- I’ve known Grand Capital for quite a while. My favorite service is, without a doubt, demo contests, because I never stop looking for the new profitable trading strategies and the opportunity to receive a real prize for trading demo is a nice addition to that.

Why did you choose to participate in Drag Trade contest?

- I like the contest because it only lasts for an hour and is suitable for short-term strategies I’m now working on.

What trading instruments do you prefer?

- As the majority of traders out there I prefer currency pairs. In the contest I traded CADJPY simply because I have a lot of experience trading that pair.

What trading strategy do you consider to be the most successful?

- It is hard to name just one, because one shoe doesn’t fit all. Every trader should choose the strategy depending on his or her personal qualities, such as self-discipline and the depth of market knowledge. As for me, I think that short term strategies work the best for my personality and my victory proved that.

Tell us a bit about the contest. I think that many of us want to know what your success factor was.

- It is a difficult question as I can’t compare my trades with the trades of other contestants. I can only say that I opened just two trades during the contest. It's just that I was really familiar with the pair I traded and increased the trade volume at the right moment. As a result, I managed to increase my initial deposit by about 40% and ended the round with the highest account balance.

Are you planning to participate in other contests of Grand Capital?

- Yes, I’ll go for Rally Trade next.

What would you recommend to those traders who haven’t yet participated in Grand Capital contests?

To those who are determined to win I would recommend to pick an instrument you are really familiar with. If you are a novice, then don’t be afraid of contests because contest account is a great way to practice a new strategy without losing own money.

And good luck to all the traders out there!
