Desanto Budi Prasetya from Bali, winner of the 516th round of Drag Trade, received real $200

Preferred instruments: gold.

Trading strategy: support and resistance levels, scalping.

Indicators: moving averages.

I am 38, I come from East Java, the city of Malang. I moved to Denpasar to work as a driver. I lost my job to the economic crisis, and the tourism in Bali was badly damaged by the coronavirus, now there is simply no work, so I decided to focus on trading. I came to the market about 10 months ago. I received all the necessary knowledge about trading from the Internet, read many articles on Forex. My main goal is to become a professional trader, I plan to get better and learn a lot. I have a trading strategy – scalping with support and resistance levels on a 30-minute chart. When trading is intense, I drink coffee or smoke, but generally, I manage to stay calm.

I chose this broker after reading feedback and reviews on different sites. Grand Capital has received a lot of positive response, I also paid attention to the feedback from the contest winners and decided to register. I wanted to take the first place in Drag Trade because the winner can withdraw the prize without making a deposit first, which is pretty cool. By the way, I had already taken the second place earlier in this competition. Of course, my most successful trade was placed when I won this contest! I hope that this experience will help me get better at analyzing the markets, since I lost my main job due to the pandemic, and it’s time to start working harder from home. I believe that contests is a great opportunity to test your trading strategies! Traders have a chance to study the patterns of currency movement without the risk of losing funds if they are beginners like me. I think my victory is 70% luck and 30% trading skills.

My piece of advice for beginners is not to give up! Don’t be afraid to close a losing position if you feel that you have chosen the wrong strategy.

I’m a 40-year-old gas station owner. I have been trading for 5 years. In my spare time, I am fond of playing cricket and reading books. My boss showed me the world of Forex, for which I am very grateful to him. My dream is to turn trading into the main source of income. I am a business person, and I know what profit and loss are, so I am not nervous when making transactions.

I chose this broker based on the number of positive reviews, they got me interested in Grand Capital. I like all the contests from Grand Capital, especially the monthly ones. This round went well, I followed AUDUSD closely and anticipated all its movements.

I recommend novice traders to study the market as much as possible, then practice on a demo account, and only then open a real account and start trading with a little—but nevertheless some—knowledge! Good luck!
