Make yourself a cup of hot tea and read a fascinating story of the trader Optima about the journey from the tea capital of Sri Lanka to the Forex world. Our winner of the first stage of "Great Trading Contest" won $1 000.
What do you do and how long do you trade on Forex?
My name is Banuresan, I'm from Nuwara Eliya. My family cultivates tea on our small plantation for nine generations. I came to Forex a year and a half ago, just for fun. As it turned out, entertainment can bring not only positive emotions but also real money.
Why did you decide to take part in the contest?
The grand prize BMW attracted me. Reading the terms of the contest, I found that there are also prizes at every stage. The minimum amount of participation pleased me even more, and I decided to take part. Perhaps, it was the largest investment in Forex for me. But I do not regret, because my deposit has now increased in several times.
What was your trading strategy in the competition?
A long trade on EURUSD brought me the main profit. I traded on news.
How will you use your prize money?
I intend to go on trading. An especially useful thing is that the prize money supports account under drawdown.
Will you take part in the next stage of the contest?
Yes, definitely. I managed to win once — and I’m planning to the top for the second one.
Will you wish something to other participants of "Great Trading Contest"?
I wish you inexhaustible passion and great fortune. There are 14 stages ahead, and it is worth trying on each one, I'm sure.
We thank the trader Optima for taking part and answers.
The second stage of the international "Great Trading Contest" has already prepared a prize pool of $3 000 for its the winners and the chance to win BMW X6 M. Become the best FreshForex trader — it is worth to try!
