In the meantime, the results of the last but one round are here, so let’s welcome Chin Heung from Hong Kong who was the first trader in Round 19. The winner was excited to share his trading secrets and strategies:
The contest was an excellent drill for me. I’ve been trading for quite a while now, but I’ve never thought I could win in a contest: there are so many people participating... This time I got lucky and my profits were unexpectedly high. I mean, I consider myself an experienced trader but profits always vary and I can’t say I don’t face any losses. So I’m really excited about the recent round of the Supercharged contest.
The contest wasn’t taking a lot of time and effort, I was just trading as usual. At the same time, I was competing with the other contestants which was a good challenge.
There’s only one month left till the very end of OctaFX Supercharged real contest, and soon the ultimate winners will be unveiled. Stay tuned to learn who gets Tesla Model S and a whole lot of other outstanding prizes! Here is the list of prizes you can get competing in the final:
- Tesla Model S
- Smart Fortwo
- Renault Twizy
- The latest Apple iMac
- The latest Apple MacBook pro
- The latest Apple Macbook Air
- The latest Apple Mac Mini
- The latest Apple iPad
- Apple iPhone 6s plus
- iPhone 6s
My main strategy is no rush. If you are emotional and impatient, you are not a good trader. Forex is all about being calm and relaxed - no matter what happens on the market. Being reserved, you can see the whole picture in objective light. Of course, it took some time for me to develop this strategy and adopt it. The first year or two were full of mistakes and stupid losses. Now I learned to avoid them thanks to being patient and calm. There is one trick to acquire this kind of state: keep your “trading money” separate from your personal funds. Consider trading your job - this will help you bring down the level of nervousness.
My next plan is of course to win Tesla. The last round will be over soon and I stake my hopes on the last run. The prize is really big, so the competition is serious.
My advice for the fellow traders is the following: be strong, calm and be ready to win. Because… why not?
OctaFX Supercharged real contest: time to win!
