–        Tell us about your trading carrier in Forex: the way you’ve learnt about it and taken up trading. You might remember your first profits.

–         I’ve been only 2 years at Forex. I started accidentally by getting enrolled in some brokerage courses in our town. I first made about 30 pips on USD/JPY.

–         Do you trade on a real account? How do you like it?

–          Yes, I do. But Forex contests are more appealing to me now. I do succeed but not much.

–         Will you share some secrets of your trading strategy?

–          There are no secrets at all. I just use the trend following Ichimoku candlestick charts.

–          How did you learn about ForexCup project? What pros and cons do you see?

–         I’ve learnt about it from some Forex-related forum. ForexCup is a great project! I especially appreciate the lot size restrictions – it helps to even the odds.

–         Are you willing to go on with ForexCup?

–          Sure I am! And I advise everybody not to be lazy, get some training on demo accounts, build up new trading strategies and take part in ForexCup competitions! Good Luck!

ForexCup team joins the wishes and once again congratulates the winner.

Participate in contests! Be bold – Fortune favours the brave!
