Rank 1 Gain 9371.22%

I am very happy to win the contest, and I am even more surprised and excited to outperform such competitive traders. Participation in the contest is a great opportunity for me to excel my trading abilities, since trading plays important part in my life. I am not going to stop participating in the competitions, and I will try out other contests as well. Learning is a continuous process! Based on my experience, I can tell that besides trading fundamentals, “trading psychology” is critical for traders. By saying that I mean a trader has to devise his own set of rules and adhere to it. Meanwhile, a trader should keep in mind risk and finance management. My perfect strategy can be described as: “When the bulls lose its steam then it’s time to short”. Trading is an art, and I do not focus on my gain and loss, but rather keep in mind my plan. I have been trading for 6 years, and only the last year paid off. I have a Guru, a mentor, who helps me to become a good trader. The orientation towards the goal is the only right way to succeed!

2nd place - Mr. Carvel Gabbidon from Jamaica


Jamaica Jamaica
Rank 2 Gain 3555.10%

It feel excited about the accomplishment, as I am working hard to achieve my goal. I trade 2 hours per day during my trading hours. What I have learnt is that the patience is the key to success, as well as the ability to manage finances. My own trading strategy is a mix of some fundamental techniques and the analysis of my personal trading. Trial-and-error technique worked best for me, so now I have devised and developed my trading style. Speaking about my accomplishments, the biggest one was during the elections in Britain, which affected the British pound. It was a big gain for me!

3rd place - Mr. Achmad Dermawan Simatupang  from Indonesia


Indonesia Indonesia
Rank 3 Gain 3300.75%

I am quite satisfied with the results and the contest itself. I might admit that I trade 1 hour a day, which is definitely not enough. Perseverance and patience are very important in trading. For instance, patience is critical while determining trading indicators. Personally, I carefully monitor indicators, and it helps me to gain profit. What I like about the contest is that it helps to preserve big money from loss. It usually takes about 7 years to become a really good trader.

The last runner - Mr. Andrey Gladkih from Hungary

I liked the contest, everything was good. Honestly, the participation took all of my time. Unfortunately, I was the worst. I tried a variety of methods, but it seemed they all failed. I believe, it might require up to 5 years to become a good trader.

We would like to thank the traders for sharing their success stories, as we believe that by doing so we can build a trading community of proficient traders. Join our next round registration for the contest and become a champion! Next round is open for all participants!
