Aleksandr Filimonov, the winner of 399th round of Drag Trade, received real $200

“I’m 58 and I’m an engineer. I like to build things, but trading is my main hobby for about 10 years. I learned about Forex from an ad. I had my difficulties, just like everyone else in the beginning. The difficulties of psychological nature: I wanted to get everything right away and I lost a lot of money because of that. I’m yet to achieve the art of calm and steady trading. I mostly trade with major currency pairs and gold. Recently I’ve been favoring GBP/USD. I use levels, Elliott Wave, Japanese candlesticks, Fibonacci retracement. I make decisions based on several indicators. I chose Grand Capital because of a solid reputation, a wide range of account types and instruments, easy deposit/withdrawal of funds. I like the fact that the company’s contests are regular and interesting. I beat my competitors at Drag Trade by less than 1%. The beginners should search for a strategy that suits their character, also don’t take big risks. Always have something to trade with for tomorrow.

Svetlana Pulatova, Azerbaijan, the winner of 210th round of Rally Trade, received $500 no-deposit bonus

“I used to teach English, now I’m 58. I learned trading on my own, after a recommendation from my friends. I mostly trade currencies, and I prefer Sniper strategy and scalping. I pay attention to spread and commission when choosing a broker. I like Grand Capital’s contests, they are a great opportunity to practice trading. I decided to participate in Rally Trade to win an initial capital. Although I won only by a small margin, I did it thanks to the correct choice of a currency pair and low volatility on the market. All beginners should try themselves in contests. If you can win, you’re ready to trade on real accounts.”

Yuri Ogoltsov, Russia, the winner of 401st round of Drag Trade, received real $200

“I’m 55. I dedicate all my free time to Forex trading. I learned about it accidentally four years ago. I learned from my own mistakes. A good trader must be disciplined and true to their dream. And of course, you should analyze your successes and failures. When you start trading, a desire for easy and fast income gets in the way. But with experience, you’re beginning to appreciate calm trading and start to get planned profit. I tried many different instruments and finally chose the most liquid ones: EUR/USD and GBP/USD. My strategy is the European session and intraday trading. I also use support and resistance levels. I love competition in general and often participate in contests. In this round, it all happened in the last few minutes. There’s a certain edge to Drag Trade, it’s a one-hour contest and since you risk more, you have to quickly make unorthodox decisions.”

Our new interview round-up features the winners of our all four contests. The winners will share their experience from the winning rounds, and we will tell about the advantages of each contest.

Micro Trade is the only contest on real accounts, the winner gets 300% of equity difference. Drag Trade is the shortest contest, participants have only one hour to prove themselves. The main prize in Drag Trade is withdrawable $200. Rally Trade lasts one day and the winner gets a $500 no-deposit bonus. You can trade futures contracts in Future Trade and receive a $1000 no-deposit bonus.

Natalya Nedvoryagina, Moldova, the winner of the 83rd round of Micro Trade.

“I’m a radio engineering technician, I'm 65 years old. My hobbies are theater, books, music. I also think of trading as a hobby, though I’ve been familiar with it for a long time, since 2010. I prefer trading with EUR/JPY. I don’t always stick to one particular strategy, I base my trading on day charts. The newcomers shouldn’t be afraid of losing and should carefully analyze the charts. In Micro Trade the trading is on real accounts, so there’s not as much competition as in other contests. One of the most memorable trades is the one that led to my victory. At first, I thought that another contestant would win, but eventually, he went below zero and I got ahead of everyone else.”

Sergei Novikov, Russia, the winner of the 59th round of Future Trade.

“I’m 36 and trading is still more of a hobby for me. I like that profits are not limited by anything there. I like the contests, like the way it’s organized. During this competition, I managed to close my most successful trade. I chose Grand Capital for reliability, the company’s contests don’t need any improvements, there are organized perfectly. My advice for the beginners? I have a lot to learn myself yet, so I don’t think it’s my place to give advice.”

Marina Arykova, Russia, the winner of the 209th round of Rally Trade.

“I’ve been interested in financial markets since I was 16. It was interesting to figure out what the currency rates depend on. Now I’m 29, I’m a real estate agent. Trading is not the main source of income for me. However, now I try to give more time to trading: the victory gave me confidence. I like trading with various currency pairs and stock. My most memorable trade was with Amazon shares. I started participating in trading contests about 5 years ago. It’s very convenient that Grand Capital contests are regular and come in different formats. Newcomers have the opportunity to learn without financial risks, while experienced traders can test themselves. I didn’t think I’d win in Rally Trade: I started the contest with losses, but I managed to win in the end. It’s a lesson for all traders: never give up and move forward!”

Andrei Smerdov, Russia, the winner of the 398th round of Drag Trade.

“I’m 46 and I work in forestry. Numismatics and biology are my hobbies. I’ve been interested in financial markets since 2008. Sure, I had my share of unsuccessful trades. But my most successful one allowed me to increase my deposit by four times. My favorite instruments are GBP/USD and gold. I always pay attention to what contests are offered by a broker. I’ve been participating in Drag Trade for about two years now. Several times I made it into the top-10, but never took the first place. In this round, I correctly predicted the decline of GBP/USD and won. It’s a pity that the winners can’t participate twice in Grand Capital contests. The contests provide great opportunity to master your strategy, get adrenaline and fight for the prize. The beginners should take part regularly.”

In this interview round-up read about three Drag Trade winners and one Rally Trade winner.

Our winners came to financial markets by different ways. Boris Levinsky stumbled upon trading when looking for a way to earn on the web after he retired. On the other hand, Gunawan Lili deliberately studied hard to enter the world of trading. Now they all achieved great heights in trading and are ready to provide advice for beginners.

 

Anatoly Galbi, Russia, the winner of 395th round of Drag Trade

“My professional area is construction, but I’ve been trading for more than 5 years, I started because I wanted some financial independence. It was hard to learn the terminology. The problems started getting fewer with practice, although I tried to handle bigger volumes in the beginning and sometimes got margin calls. Now my favorite trades are with GBP/JPY because they are highly volatile. Scalping is one of my favorite strategies. I like trading because it’s mysterious, it’s like a puzzle that I want to solve. I’ve been participating in Grand Capital contests for quite a while, but it’s my first victory. Now I want to win Rally Trade. Beginners should learn and practice more. Grand Capital contests are quite useful for that.”

 

Boris Levinsky, Russia, the winner of 396th round of Drag Trade

“I’m already retired and this year I turned 60. I got into trading several years ago when I started looking for an extra income online. At first, I took trading as a game and faced difficulties. But then I saw that trading is an actual work. I always look for patterns, deeply analyze, I don’t rush into things head first. My most successful trade was the one that got me the victory in Drag Trade. The most important thing for traders is to believe in themselves. You have to develop your own trading strategies, constantly improve them and don’t listen to armchair advisers. You can listen to reasonable advice, but always make your own decisions.”

 

Svetlana Pletnyova, Russia, the winner of 208th round of Rally Trade

“I managed to win in Rally Trade because I closed my trades in time. I beat my opponents by a very small margin. I’d won in Drag Trade before. But Rally Trade has a bigger prize, so it’s pleasanter to win. I think that if trading is not working out very well since morning, don’t continue, today’s not going to bring anything. My favorite instruments are USD/ZAR and GBP/JPY for contests and GBP/USD for real trading. I want to thank Grand Capital for a chance to test myself in trading without making any deposits.”

 

Gunawan Lili, Indonesia, the winner of 397th round of Drag Trade

“I work in a local college: I’m in charge of the classes schedule and the archive. When I started trading on Forex I realized right away that it’s for me. My first encounter with financial markets was three years ago. My initial capital was small. A trader has to control their emotions and understand the tendencies of the market in order to succeed. As of today, I made my biggest profit at the time of Brexit. I’m not always able to make decisions momentarily and sometimes I miss the right moment. Fortunately, I never had any significant losses. A broker has to be reliable and guarantee security, it’s important for me. Grand Capital is on the market since 2006 and it tells a lot.”
