Re: Grand Capital

"Profitable trading system is no pie - you can't just walk into a store and take it from the shelf"

In a brief interview the newest winner of Drag Trade contest Alexey Baulov from Tumen shared his thoughts on the main side to a profitable trading system as well as his winning tactics.

Alexey, tell us about yourself: what is your education, how long have you been trading on Forex and how did you start?

I am an engineer and have been trading on Forex for over 4 years. It all started when I found out that one of my friends really got into trading. I must confess, I was pretty sceptical about all this Forex thing at that time, but my friend is far from being stupid and I thought, - "why don't I at least see for myself what it really is before making any judgements?" At first I was trading on several demo accounts and even participated in some demo contests, but without any luck. My real trading expecience started with my first Micro account, but I quicky shifted to a Standard one. My friend has already dropped Forex, but I never did and am pretty happy about it.

Tell us about your trading strategy. How did you learn about it?

My strategy is based on Fibonacci retracement and Elliott Wave Principle. I can tell you an exact source I learnt it from. It is more about my experience of ups and downs, trying many things. Even now I keep improving the system based on the market mood.

What trading strategy do you consider the most successful?

Based on my experience, which has helped me to grow from a losing gambler to a trader to whom Forex is a serious source of income, I can tell that there is no (or may be I've just never encountered it) 100% profitable strategy, which you can take from a shelf in a convenience store like a pie. You can develop an understanding of a market and transform it to an algorithm (mathematical equation). This algorithm will become our main trading system which will become better and better with time, continue its evolution.

For the contest you chose GBPUSD pair. What was the reason behind that?

My strategy suits three currency pairs: EURUSD, GBPuSD and AUDUSD. I chose only one pair because I like to focus on only one thing.

What do you think was your success factor?

I was increasing the volume when I saw the trend coming. There's no phsycology in a demo contest, to you can experiment all you want. I don't compete with anyone when I trade on a real account, because in the real world, everyone who earns profit is a winner there.

What would you recommend to those who have yet to participate in Grand Capital contests?

Never stop learning and remember that there is no strategy that will give you 100% result.

Good luck to everyone!

Re: Grand Capital

Scalping is the safest strategy. Interview with Nusrettin Ceylan, who won $200 in Drag Trade Contest

We've heard many news from Turkey during the past summer, including many political events wich had negative effects on markets: Turkish lira fell, along with Turkish stock market. The winner of tour 333 of Drag Trade contest - a student from Turkey, despite a busy schedule, took some time to tell us why he prefers international brokers to local ones. 

Trading as science

I am a student of Ege University. For me, trading is more of a hobby which sometimes results in additional income. However, I always try to find enough time to educate myself. Unfortunately, I couldn't find fellow traders among my friends, so I have to do it on my own. I watch educating videos, participate in webinars, read books on Forex, study analytics. In other words, I use any chance I have to learn more about trading. I used the very same approach in the contest.

I chose Grand Capital as it is one of the biggest brokers

My top-5 favorite currencies are: EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDCAD, XAUUSD, and USDTRY. As per strategies, I am quite loyal to scalping as it is comparatively safe and gives you some space for maneuvers. I intentionally choose foreign brokers. The thing is that Turkish brokers don't yet offer as many services and opportunities as international companies. For example, the highest leverage here is 1:25. In Grand Capital I’ve used 1:500 (editor's note - for a Standard account the maximum leverage is 1:2000). I chose Grand Capital because it is one of the biggest brokers. That was also the reason for my participation in Drag Trade contest. As per the things I would change - I would really like to see Turkish language support.

Re: Grand Capital

Anyone can earn on Forex. Interview with Vitaly Kurgaev, the winner of $500 in Rally Trade contest.

A life of a trader is always a series of ups and downs which change as fast as asset quotes. Vitaly Durgaev, the winner of round 176 of Rally Trade contest told us why he loves trading and what it takes to become a professional trader.

Trading provides you with unlimited possibilities

Although I majored in accounting, I work as a craft metal founder. My first trading experience happened back in 2000. I deposited $200 and got lucky - I managed to earn $2000 right away. Then a typical mistake of any starting trader followed - no stop losses. As a result I spent the next week watching yen fall, eating my deposit. I love trading because it gives you unlimited possibilities. It's just someone likes gambling and some prefer to use their brains and go to Forex. I think that anyone can be a trader now. If to think about it - there is nothing extraordinary here. No matter where you are, all you need is to place a trade is your smartphone. It is even simpler than to set an alarm clock. But to be a successful trader... It is a totally different thing. For that you will need self-discipline, a good trading strategy and a fair deposit amount. That is why I've never thought of trading as a main source of income. It is, indeed, hard to work in 24/5 mode.

Choose highly volatile assets and follow the news

Sometimes I really lack patience to trade as a professional. I am in a constant search of a trading strategy that would provide stable results. Any strategy needs to be constantly optimized, because it may bring profit when trading one asset and lead to a loss when a different one chosen. In the contest I traded the most volatile assets at that time - GBPNZD and GBPJPY and carefully followed the news. Here's my advice to all novices: learn the contest rules and click the Register button! When the contest is about to end, start monitoring the rating. Sometimes there are just a couple of pips that separate the winner and a loser.

Good luck to everyone!

Re: Grand Capital

Trading is a lot like life. Interview with Sergey Novikov, the winner of $500 in Rally Trade contest.

It’s human nature to draw comparisons: juxtapose facts and look for parallels between certain events. Sergey Novikov, the winner of round 177 of Rally Trade believes that trading, like life, grants a multitude of opportunities. The important thing is how you use them.

Make use of opportunities reasonably

I started trading Forex relatively recently, although I’d heard of it before. My primary occupation is my household, and in my spare time I’m getting “drawn” into the realm of financial markets little by little. Like any other business, trading has its pros and cons. If handled properly, trading, like life, provides virtually unlimited prospects and a myriad of opportunities. But you should use those opportunities reasonably, and with proper risk management. For example, extensive market analysis appeals to me, so I concentrate on it.

I didn’t win the contest on the first try

I usually look through charts to get new trading ideas. In fact, I choose trading instruments based on whether I like their charts. Right now I’m only getting to know various brokers. So far I’m satisfied with Grand Capital in all respects, I hold a favorable opinion of the company, everything’s right and proper. I decided to participate in Rally Trade because it was interesting to try my hand in trading in nearly real-life conditions. I didn’t win the contest on the first try, my success is the result of several attempts and to a large extent I owe my victory to luck. I still don’t consider myself a professional, I’m yet to learn a lot about trading and I’m ready to do that.

Re: Grand Capital

Trading with the others’ ideas means don’t have your own ones. Interview with Denis Traube, Drag Trade contest winner.

It is often thought that it’s better to invent something new and unique than to borrow ideas. But usually such claims are only good in theory, but in practice something conventional turns out to be way more effective and reliable. That’s why newbie traders, who worry about losing their money, prefer to copy and borrow trading ideas. Denis Traube, the winner of round 335 of Drag Trade contest, has developed over the years his own vision of trading. He put it to practice, perfected it and turned into nothing short of a philosophical doctrine. In this interview Denis told us how to search for your own individual method and why you should always question your own actions.

Denis, tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you do?

I’d been pursuing more than a dozen lines of work, mainly construction, metalworking and other kinds of assembly activities. But for a long time now I’ve been handicapped and unemployed, and I have no desire of advancing my “professional career” any further.

How did you get into trading? Does trading bring you stable income?

I’ve been trading since about 2004, but there were long breaks and occasionally I lost interest in trading due to lack of ideas. Trading doesn’t bring stable income. I prefer to think of myself as a theorist trader. A researcher. And up to a certain time I was satisfied solely with game thrill, like playing chess.

Let’s imagine an ideal trader. What qualities do they possess?

Attentiveness and patience. Concentration and a lack of urge for thoughtless imitation. Everybody talks about discipline, but I think it’s overrated. You should be constantly questioning your decisions instead.

Let’s discuss the most common mistakes of trading novices. Have you managed to avoid them?

I’m a self-taught trader. When I was starting to trade I skipped through the guidebooks, but they didn’t answer my questions. I found the answers to some of them later, but not near to all of them. I made assumptions and hypotheses, put them to practice and eliminated anything useless. I tried to reach understanding of the “understanding” itself, so to say. Now I use only my own express methods and try not to pay attention to the blabbing about yesterday’s news. Yesterday’s news isn’t worth much. It’s only me and the display of my computer. There’s no other way. There’s merely a short list of persons, whose trading methods I share. Trading with the others’ ideas means don’t have your own ones. Do you want to acquire a prospect of your own brainwork’s degradation under the influence of someone else’s forecasts? It’s not the best way of keeping afloat even in trading-related activities. You come into trading to become independent, but you become dependent on someone else’s views? Sure way to stay in those proverbial 95% and not get anywhere.

What trading instruments do you prefer?

Chiefly it’s highly volatile cross currency pairs. I don’t use majors that often nowadays, only with a nice setup, to get an aesthetic enjoyment from an accurately calculated reversal.

What do you pay attention to when choosing a broker?

Responsiveness and quality of service. Quotations variability range. Broker’s history on the market and the reviews, both invited and honestly earned. Information space requires transparency and fair play. If you don’t realize that, you lose customers and eventually crash, that applies to any business.

Why did you decide to participate in Grand Capital contest?

Because I like Grand Capital contests. I take part in them regularly and I see that the leaderboards are inhabited by actual trading behemoths, I mean it in a good way, they are highly trained and have a deep understanding of market dynamics. You have to wrestle your way to the victory one step at a time, with persistence and sheer stubbornness. Phycologists say that “boys need to compete”. So we compete. And for that we owe you an eternal gratitude.

And finally, what advice can you give to beginners?

Everyone looks at the same chart and everything is in plain view: price, time and quadrature. Never give up. If you’re tired, take a rest and charge again, and then everything will surely work out in the end. And throw all your indicators away! If the price reflects everything, why do you need those crutches?
