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.”
