Interview with contest winners: "I beat the others only by a small margin, so the competition became pretty intense towards the end"
Our new interview roundup features the winners of Future Trade, Rally Trade and Drag Trade. An engineer from Belarus, an electrical equipment operator from Ukraine and a businessman from Russia all participated already in Grand Capital contests a few times and now are ready to share their advice with the beginners.
Igor Dubodelov, Belarus, the winner of 53rd round of Future Trade, received $1000 no-deposit bonus. Igor has already won in Drag Trade.
"I'm an engineer and I think that anyone can become a trader. But in order to earn money, you have to learn and build your character. I've been participating in Grand Capital contests for over four years. Finally, I succeeded and took the first place in the futures contest. Sometimes I was in the top ten, even the second, but couldn't take the first place. It seems like the good fortune finally smiled upon me in the last month, since I have already won in Drag Trade. I won thanks to my persistence, lucky combination of circumstances, correct calculation and, of course, more or less decent preparation during all those years. I beat the others only by a small margin, so the competition became pretty intense towards the end. I wish everybody luck, don't give up hope!"
Dmytro Melnychenko, Ukraine, the winner of 197th round of Rally Trade, received $500 no-deposit bonus.
"I'm 33 and I work as an electrical equipment operator. As a freelance job, I make expert advisors and indicators. I first learned about Forex on some website. I got interested, started searching for more information and tried trading on cent accounts for a couple of years, but not very successfully. I don't use analytics and trade only based on my own understanding of the current market situation. I have tried many indicator-based trading strategies and came across Sniper strategy. I did some research and tried it out quite a few times. It was getting better every time. I placed my most successful trade a couple of years ago, when I opened a position with the maximum lot available on a cent account and closed it after two weeks. That trade brought me 800% deposit growth. I've been participating in Grand Capital contests for a long time. Since Rally Trade is a short contest, I used some of the most volatile instruments, GBP, USD/ZAR. I took the second and the third place several times, but finally, I managed to take the first. I hope to make it on a real account also. I want to say thank you to Grand Capital for an opportunity to try myself at real trading! My advice to beginners: don't open positions if you're not sure and don't panic if the price goes the wrong way. Every action you take on the market should be thought-out and not impulsive."
Vasily Braginets, Russia, the winner of 374th round of Drag Trade, received real $200.
"I'm 52, I'm a businessman. First I got into Forex in 2005. I received a financial education so I already knew a thing or two about it. I liked the possibility of making money using your head without any middlemen. First I took trading classes, then continued on my own. The biggest problem then was that the most brokers didn't move money to the market, but kept them circulating within the company instead. I mostly trade with one and four hour charts. I still have a lot of free time. That's why I want to try myself at binary options. I prefer trading with USD/ZAR pair. My strategy is the right choice of indicators, and the understanding of how the market moves comes with experience. A beginner should always follow the news and not try to earn everything in a day. The market won't go anywhere. I like Grand Capital and I have been following the company for quite some time. I'm glad that you constantly progress, search for something new and go with the trend. I've been participating in Grand Capital contests for a long time and on several occasions I took the second place. So, as they say, if at first you don’t succeed, try again."
