    “Don’t be afraid of losses, they must be a part of your trading plan” — interview with Drag Trade contest winner The winner of the 421st round of Drag Trade, Denis Nemchinov is a trader with 14 years of experience. He told us how he had learned trading and why the emotions gave way to calculations. Trading experience: 14 years Preferred instruments: EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/CAD, AUD/USD Trading strategies: intraday scalping Tell us about yourself: your work, hobbies? I’m 35 and I’m a business owner. I love miniature sculpting and sports. How did you become a trader? For how long have you been trading? I’d always been interested in Forex trading, and I started getting into it myself in 2004. I didn’t learn trading properly, I simply read professional books and visited online forums. Now many brokers offer educational courses and webinars where you can get all the necessary knowledge. For those who are already familiar with the basics, the most effective way of learning is the trading itself, immersion into the market. Has your attitude towards trading changed over the time? At first, I viewed trading as a game and approached it with thrill and excitement. Now it’s all figures and charts to me, rational calculation and understanding that knowledge and hard work are behind all this. What are your goals and what trading achievements are you planning to make? I don’t set any specific goals for myself. For me, trading is a mental workout with profit as a pleasant bonus. Tell us about your most successful, most unsuccessful or just memorable trade. My most memorable trade was also my first one. I’ll never forget my feelings when I blew $1000 on my account. After that, I started actively reading professional books and learn the basics of trading. How do you handle anxiety while trading? What helps you control your emotions? I try to think through all the minute details of a trade, where to open a position, where to close, what are some of the possible negative scenarios in my situation. That’s why when a position is open and the levels are set, the trade is set in motion and doesn’t require my attention. I minimize the trading terminal and go about other things and check the result some time later. What’s important for you when choosing a broker? Why Grand Capital? It’s important for a broker to have a decent reputation on the market, convenient trading conditions and good relationship with clients. Grand Capital checks all these boxes. I started trading with this company on the advice of my friends. I liked the favorable conditions and the wide range of services. What do you like about Grand Capital contests? I like that the contests are very different, held quite often and don’t last very long, without dragging on for months. And, of course, good prizes that provide the incentive for further trading with Grand Capital. Tell us about this round, what strategy did you use, what helped you win? To be fair, the victory was a big and pleasant surprise for me. My strategy was aggressive scalping with large volumes and high risks. What’s your word of advice for novice traders? It might sound corny, but you have to learn. Not only the technical aspects and basic concepts but the understanding of the market. Don’t be afraid if losses, they must become a part of your trading plan. Try to get rid of fear and excessive excitement. Emotions create the wrong approach to trading.

    Interview with contest winners: “Experience is the best teacher for traders” We think that it is important for traders to learn from their own mistakes and for that reason we asked our contest winners to share their most cringing mistakes. Despite the fails, they didn’t stop trading and have gained more than they’ve lost. Marina Zorina from Russia, the winner of round 2017 of Rally Trade contest with the main prize of $500 no-deposit bonus. Previously also won in Futures Trade Trading experience: 10 years Favorite trading instruments: EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and other majors Trading strategy: scalping “I’ve been trading for a long time and my perspective on trading has changed significantly with time. When I just started there was this rush, adrenaline, but now I am more patient and steady going. Trading has become a daily work for me. I start my day with analysis of currency pairs, then I check the time of important news releases and build my trading strategy from there. I only trade major currency pairs as I don’t see the point in spreading your attention over a huge amount of trading instruments. I like Rally Trade contest because of the one-day time limit. It is the right time to test the trading strategy. In this round my main competitor was a trader from Kalinovka, I saw our balances constantly changing. I own my victory to scalping, which I use in my everyday trading.” Alexey Kotlyarov from Belarus, winner of the 416th round of Drag Trade contest with the main prize of real $200 Trading experience: 4 years Favourite trading instruments: EUR/USD, GBP/USD, sometimes GBP/JPY, EUR/JPY Favorite indicators: ZigZag and moving average “I am 25 years old, I work as a window fitter. I learned to trade on my own by trial and error. At first I failed a lot. I consider my biggest mistake the loss of $4000, which I raised from only $500 in one month. Funny enough, losing it took only one hour :( Now I am more cautious. Experience is, indeed, the best teacher. When, sitting by that monitor, you realise that you can’t control your emotions, it is the best to just stand up and give yourself a good 5-10 minute walk. I don’t set extreme goals in trading, as it is more of an extra source of income for my family budget. What’s most important in Drag Trade is to determine which instruments you are going to trade with. You only have one hour and the volatility is extremely important here. That’s why I chose CAD for this round, because of the high volatility. As usual, I used wave analysis. Frankly speaking, I was surprised with my results. When the final results were published, I realized that “too cool for school” is not the line of thinking for this contest. My closest competitor was only a couple of pips behind.” Alexander Markov from Russia, the winner of the 417th round of Drag Trade contest. Received the real $200 Trading experience: 3 years Favorite trading instruments: major currency pairs Trading strategy: intraday “I am 22 and I work as a manager. My friend got me “hooked” with trading. As any novice, I’ve made lots and lots of mistakes. I remember elevating my balance during the whole week and ended up multiplying my deposit by 5 times and on Friday I’ve lost everything because of news. I was honestly grieving. I only trade currencies, It may seem really simple — all you need is to predict whether the price will go up or down. Oh, how much effort it takes to comprehend how it all works... I use intraday strategy and scalping. I can’t wait for too long and set 100-point stop losses. When I choose a broker I pay attention to the spread, execution speed, commissions and, of course, withdrawals. I like Grand Capital contests because they are short. I don’t have time for spending long days in front of a monitor. I pay my respects to my luck for winning this round. Last time I took the second place, I missed just a little. My advice for novices is to look for their strategy or a system. When you find it, don’t give us even if sometimes something goes wrong.” You can read the contest rules and register for the next round here. Trade and win with Grand Capital!
