How traders profited off of the crisis with $10000


1 June 2020

Early in the pandemic, when lockdowns were being imposed across the world, we wrote a post about making money during the crisis. The recommendations concerned the shares of major companies, NASDAQ, and gold. Now it’s time to look at the results. Here’s how much two traders with $5,000 and $10,000 made in two months following our recommendations.

In the middle of March, Grand Capital analysts examined the markets and picked the assets to pay attention to during the current crisis. Stock prices of many major global brands and prices of other popular assets were already dropping by then. The UK stock market was down 10%. Across the pond, Dow Jones and S&P 500 hit the worst values since 1987.

Shares: + 71% with 1:5 leverage


In March, we recommended adding the shares of Boeing (BA), Apple (APPL), and Coca-Cola (KO) to your investment portfolio. The charts below show the history of price movement.

The first rule of investment during the crisis is to diversify. If one industry sinks, the others will make up for it. That’s what the trader Pranav S. from India did: he formed a simple investment portfolio with the three shares listed above. In March, one BA share was priced at $148, and the closing price on May 26th was a bit smaller: $147.1. However, the growth in the stock prices of Apple and Coca-Cola covered whatever small losses there were and generated a profit of 71% of the initial balance.

In particular, the stock price of Apple in March was $230, while on May 26th this value reached $325.4. Taking into account a margin rate of 20%, the trader made $3,575 in two months, which is 71.5% of the $5,000 he had started with!

NASDAQ: x5 profit


By March 18th, NASDAQ had lost almost 20% since the last year, and over 25% in a month (compared to February 19th). That’s why we picked NQ as a promising index for planning long positions for the period of 2–4 months.

Trader Cyril K. from South Africa with $10,000 for trading at his disposal split the money into two Standard accounts. He placed one trade following the NASDAQ idea that we suggested. He bought 1 lot for $7,074, and recently he’s closed the trade at $9,538, which means the profit is $24,640, or nearly 500% of the initial balance.

The gold Standard


When the new coronavirus pandemic started, the list of the most popular trading instruments was dominated by gold. It had been rising through the winter, which only fueled the interest of investors, since gold is typically a very stable and strategic part of any investment portfolio during a time of extreme volatility and stock market crashes. As the understanding of the scale of the crisis grew, the demand for gold started to rise, and the price rose with it.

Cyril K. bought 0.5 lots of GOLD on his second Standard account immediately after the price plummeted to $1,500, and sold the contract n May 26th at $1,725 per ounce. He made a profit of $11,055, or 200% of his initial $5,000.

In the end, the trader who had split $10,000 equally between two accounts had $35,650 when he submitted a withdrawal request. Lucrative math, don’t you think?

This example once again demonstrates that a crisis can be something to be afraid of, but also an opportunity to make money. There’s still time, the markets are recovering, and you can make profits with us. Just open an account and, if necessary, consult us on the current market situation for free.
