The coronavirus pandemic has triggered a dramatic chain of events that are plunging the world into crisis. What does it mean for traders and investors, and why an economic crisis is the right time for trading? Let’s figure this out with the help of experts from Grand Capital.

Any global crisis means panic and mass hysteria. Investors resort to profit taking and start selling. However, every drop is always followed by a growth, and the deeper the fall, the stronger the rebound — a truth repeatedly confirmed by experience. Enter the risk investors: those who buy assets on the cheap hoping to sell on the rebound. It was with good reason that John D. Rockefeller said, “the way to make money is to buy when blood is running in the streets”.

How a pandemic affects the market

As the coronavirus-driven panic began to spread, stock and commodities exchanges came under pressure. Global indices continue to fall, oil prices have dropped almost double, risk appetite is in decline. Under the circumstances, investors prefer reserve assets, e.g. the American dollar, Swiss franc, gold. As the oldest trading asset, gold always rises after crises and shart drops. This can be exemplified by the 2008 financial crisis when gold fell 40% only to rise 300% in the next two years.

Changes in gold price during and after the crisis 2008

The picture that is emerging now is virtually the same as in 2008. This moment of sharp decline in gold prices is the best time to stock the valuable and long-lasting asset. 

Decline in gold prices, March 2020

Markets in the red? Time to buy!

This unfortunate winter, the new coronavirus contributed to the decline of prices for the shares of many major brands and other popular assets. The British stock market fell 10% in the most dramatic crash since 1987. In the US, Dow Jones and S&P 500 also plummeted to the lows of 1987.

However, the most severe blow was dealt to oil, the price of a barrel sank nearly to $30, reaching a sixteen-year low. Boeing, Apple, and Coca-Cola also showed a strong drawdown. A time of falling exchange prices for everything is the right time for bold investors to lay a foundation of their future prosperity.

Boeing (BA)

A staple of the world’s aviation industry. The stock of the largest aircraft manufacturer is valued at less than $150 per share right now. Even a rebound growth to $400 per share will yield 265% of profit in several years! And a margin rate of 20% per contract can multiply this profit five times!

Apple (APPL)

A company that requires no introduction. Having survived many shocks in the past, Apple demonstrates an enviable stability. With the stock price of $230, a rebound growth can bring 41% of profit per share. Moreover, unlike most trading instruments, Apple is known for the ability for a rapid recovery. In 2018–2019, the stock showed a near-100% growth! Using a margin rate of 20% can help you make the most of the situation with 300% of profit.

Coca-Cola (KO)

Buying the stock of the world’s most famous beverage brand at $40 per share will return as much as 50% of profit—and this without the margin rate.

To be fair, those accustomed to the permanent growth of financial assets are understandably confused—their securities are depreciating. However, if you missed the train of financial stability in 2009, now is the time to catch up.

Promising investments

The situation in the stock market is the most interesting. Stocks that are now cheap are sure to resume the growth after the next quarterly reports. NASDAQ has lost 17% since the beginning of the year, and 25% since the February highs. NASDAQ lost almost 20% since the beginning of the year and over 25% since 19 February. The current price is promising for long positions (buying) with an outlook of 20% profit in 2–4 months. With a margin rate the profit may reach 80%–100%.

March and February show leading numbers in terms of trading activity.

Meanwhile, despite the crisis, Grand Capital reports a several years’ record growth in activity in the first half of March 2020. Notably, total funds of Grand Capital clients went up by 159% and they withdrew 71% more money in the first two weeks of March compared to the averages values.

Just as before the crisis, the top list of popular trading instruments is occupied by the currency pairs EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD and gold. The most active traders in the time of pandemic come from South Africa, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam.

It’s up to every investor to decide whether to join the careful investors, or to take advantage of the crisis to make a killing. One way or the other, Grand Capital will continue to help you choose the most promising assets during the global crisis.

Where to start if you want to profit from the crisis?

To start making profit:

1. Register and open a trading account (several types are available: Standard, ECN, or MT5). Recommended account type for beginners is Standard.

2. Make a deposit, the recommended amount is $1,000 — to ensure that your profit will be significant and your risks limited (you’ll be able to sustain a drawdown during price fluctuations).

3. Select a leverage. The choice depends on your trading strategy, but the most popular value is 1:100.

4. Download MetaTrader 4 for mobile or desktop: you will need a trading platform to place trades and follow the trading process.

5. If you don’t know how to use a trading platform or you need instructions, consult our managers in your Private Office.

We often share with you remarkable stories of traders from all around the world. But once in a while we receive stories like this: trading is a hobby for 85-year-old Iraida and 58-year-old Lyudmila from Russia. They trade and make money, and they also participate in contests, win, and claim prizes like $500 or $1,000! We take off our hats to them and wish them further success. These stories remind us that trading is available to everyone. All you need is a desire to make money, resolution, and a computer. Read about the new winners in our latest interview round-up.

Albert Udaev, Russia, winner of the 506th round of Drag Trade, received real $ 200

Preferred instruments: USDZAR, XAUUSD, GBPJPY, GBPNZD

Preferred trading strategies: scalping, intraday trading, support and resistance levels, technical analysis

Indicators: RSI and Stochastic Oscillator

I am 36 years old, work as a programmer, also I like travelling. I learned trading from books, video tutorials, online webinars. I believe that it is necessary to study. Over time, my attitude to trading has become more serious, and now I want to turn Forex into a source of stable income. To deal with stress, you should always remember to follow your trading strategy. Experience also helps control emotions. When choosing a broker I pay attention to the company’s experience, read reviews on forums, examine deposit/withdrawal conditions. The thing I like the most about Grand Capital contests is that it’s possible to find one with suitable duration. This round was a success for me, I won with the help of scalping and my experience in trading. My advice to beginners is to study trading more and keep your emotions in check. Good luck to everyone!

Urazova Iraida Vasilievna, Russia, winner of the 263th round of Rally Trade, received a $500 bonus

Preferred instruments: gold, silver.

My name is Iraida, I am 85 years old and I’m retired. I’ve been trading for several years already. I’m fond of all sorts of creative activity, also I’m learning to work with computers. I have experience working with finance, so starting with Forex was not too hard for me. Grandchildren help me to learn. I have been familiar with trading for a long time, but I tried it only a few years ago. Trading for me is one of many hobbies, I do not set any big market goals. One of my most successful trades involved gold. I don’t get too anxious when trading. Grandchildren suggested I participate in the contest, at first I had doubts, but then I agreed — and managed to win! Competitive trading is much more interesting, because the desire to take the first place drives you forward. In this round I placed trades with gold and silver as I usually do. My piece of advice to beginners is to try! Try and you will definitely achieve your goals!

Lyudmila Panovitsyna, Russia, winner of the 505th round of Drag Trade, received real $ 200

Preferred instruments: EURUSD, USDCHF, Gold.

Preferred strategies: variable stop loss and variable take profit.

I am 58 years old, a former teacher of technical disciplines, a mother of many children, and now a grandmother of a large family, retired. I have been trading on the market since 2013, this is my hobby. I studied trading with books: Forex for Beginners (a Guide for Future Millionaires), The Price Action Bible—Trader’s handbook, Collected Lectures of the Russian Financial Analyst S. G. Demur. Demo and micro accounts are very useful for learning. I prefer intraday trading, this way it’s easier for me to close trades with profit. I close the position with profit when I want to move it to breakeven. My goal to earn + 30% of initial deposit per week and close positions at -30% of the deposit, then enter the market again. My biggest trading success happened when the prices of six simultaneously open positions reached profit after 4 hours, bypassing the stop loss. The biggest failure happened when the prices of six simultaneously open positions reached the stop loss after 4 hours, bypassing the take profit. I chose the wrong direction! I chose Grand Capital because it’s one of the biggest brokers. They also have an impeccable quality of service, I am reassured in this every time. My manager Rustem periodically reports company news, recommends to take an interest. I appreciate the opportunity to win a real deposit for trading in the contests offered by Grand Capital. For five years I missed a few Fridays, got into the top ten winners a few times. I think this is a wonderful one-hour contest! I chose the right direction of the gold price, so the position got into a profit trap. I used Fibonacci retracement level 50%, daily timeframe. I opened the first Buy position with a maximum lot of 50, it was a risky move! The remaining lots were smaller, according to the free margin level as the price moved upward — also risky! I got lucky and reached a constant profit of 1,573. As a result, 98 lots hit the target in the first 30 minutes of the competition. Did I have a desire to dive into the EURUSD market? This time, I decided not to tempt fate and moved away from the terminal. I want to advise novice traders to study the market more thoroughly: read books, follow the news and indicators. Also try to develop your own trading strategy. You can practice on a demo account for six months — you’ll see the results. I wish you all stable percentage from your strategy and success!
