1st place: Shahid Iqbal Rehan from Pakistan
‘I feel amazing as an OctaFX Champion.
I saw the contest’s promotion and gave it a try trading on mobile and tablet devices. It didn’t take much of my time. I simply followed my trading in the mobile application. I’ll now be taking part in other promotional contests. Actually, I already participate in other contest like cTrader Weekly.
The key factor that brought me to win is just following the trend. I think I am better than others just because of taking decisions at the right time.
My strategy was to increase the lot size as my balance grew. My most profitable trade brought me $33,400, which was a great deal.
I spent three years in the Forex market, and I learn a lot during this period.’
2nd place: Ratna Laelani from Indonesia
‘I’m happy to win at OctaFX Champion! I didn’t spend too much time trading, but I’ve been monitoring my position in the current rank. And in the future, I’m thinking of participating in OctaFX’s contest more actively.
I use Fibonacci technique and don’t open any positions if there are no signals. I’m not planning to switch to something new, as I feel comfortable with my current strategy. In this round, I traded and grow 10% every day.’
3rd place: Akmal AB Rahman from Malaysia
‘I’m a little bit disappointed as the winner was chosen by balance rather than equity by 5 AM. This was my second try; the first time, I came seventh in the Weekly Demo Contest, and I will certainly participate in the upcoming events. I spend around seven hours a day trading.
I win because I apply analysis rather than just gamble, like other participants may do. Which is why I analyse the market before placing an order.
Controlling your emotions is essential in Forex, and this is what you need to learn first. It took me four years to become consistent in trading.’
And congratulations to our last runner-up: Nandar Suhendar from Indonesia
