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.”
