This month our traders learned the importance of experiencing losses, as well as profits. Focus, fundamental analysis, and sticking to their favourite individual trading strategies were the keys to success for this month’s Champion Demo Contest winners.


My strategy used fundamental analysis, so I spent the most time trading when big news events were happening. I opened trades when I was confident that the fundamental market analysis accurately corresponded with the economic calendar and news headlines. So far, I haven’t experienced any huge losses and I hope I never do. I’m very happy to be this month’s winner!


I’m so pleased to have achieved 2nd place in this month’s contest! At first, I thought I had no chance of success because so many others were taking part too, but I was excited and stayed focussed on my trading strategy. I’m thankful that everything went smoothly, although I did put a significant amount of time into participating. My ability to focus and be consistent was the key to my success. My strategy combines the supply and demand technique with candlesticks, and I stick with this approach. It turns out I made a good choice to trade GBPJPY and USDJPY, experiencing some loss early on in the contest, but recovering later.

I will definitely trade on a real account with my prize funds, hopefully I’ll make a profit.


I’m feeling grateful for achieving 3rd place in the contest, and I’m excited to try trading on real accounts with my prize funds. My advice is to be patient and wait for the right moment to place a trade - I only trade during certain conditions using fundamental analysis, so I didn’t need to place trades every single day and I didn’t experience huge losses.


I’m very pleased with my position, but I did make a few mistakes because I had a strong ambition to win first place. I learned a lot from taking part in the OctaFX Champion Demo Contest, with a mix of big profits and also some significant losses during the first week. My preferred strategy is to use Fibonacci. I think it really depends on who a trader learns from and how they interpret market analysis, but I believe it’s possible to become a good trader within one year.
