The victor of the 201st round of our Formula FX competition was Sergey Sobolyev. We asked him to tell us a little bit about himself and how he achieved this success.
When did you decide to start trading on the currency market? Can you remember what inspired you to take it up?
I took the decision to start trading on the currency market in 2014. I can’t remember what led me to it.
A lot of people succumb to their emotions while trading. How do you deal with doubts, worry, and excitement?
Looking at indicators helps to ease my doubts. Feelings and emotions aren’t the best advisors, while cold calculation always helps.
Do you have any kind of ritual, or perhaps a charm, which brings you luck? Can you rely on luck and intuition in trading to a certain degree? Or is it purely about analysis and cold calculation?
In Forex trading, you need skill and an understanding of what’s going on. And don’t open positions on the EURUSD pair.
How do you spend your free time?
With my kids.
Who’s your idol in the world of finance, and why them? If you could ask that person one question, what would it be?
I’d like to ask a question not to my idol, but to my anti-idol; George Soros. I disagree with the way he does business.
