"To enter the three leaders of the 2nd stage of the "Great Trading Contest" is a good thing, and to enter the top three and overtake a wife is even better!" — says the bronze medalist of the 2nd stage Balalaika. This trader from Belarus shared with us not only his trading success but also the secrets of a happy family life.
Balalaika, tell us how you came to the Forex market.
Everything happens on a bet in my life, and I came to the Forex as well. My wife and I often make a common goal "on a bet" and we compete, who will be the first to reach. It is very effective, as we have already learned speaking Chinese, mountain skiing, playing Warcraft.
Once again we had one more deal: who can earn more profit on the Forex for six months, and began to trade. We saw the contest and decided to try, and, besides, the car will be a pleasant thing!
Was your wife also involved in the Contest?
Yes, she was good. She took the 7th place and won $100.
Did you start trading recently? Is FreshForex your first broker?
Yes, we are in the market since September of the last year, and trade on a real account since December. FreshForex is my first broker. I must say that I carefully chose a broker: I read forums, compared trading conditions, asked friends.
Tell us, how you could succeed in trading for such short time?
Perhaps my success lies in complete diving in the topic: I have a terminal opened almost 24 hours a day. I chose 6 trading instruments, for which I follow daily, and 3 most suitable indicators. I try not to open trades when I do not know where the market will go, so the news is not my strategy.
What will you do with the prize?
I have a bet with my wife till May 20: who increases the deposit, she or me will choose the country where we go on vacation. So, the answer is obvious — to trade. I really want to go to the Fjord, so I already participate in the third stage of the contest, maybe I get lucky again.
We wish Balalaika wins in the bets and thank for the answers. We remind that the 3rd stage of the "Great Trading Contest" has already started. Now is the time to join it to compete for prizes and the super prize! Show the biggest gain, and then in the next month, our traders will know exactly about your success stories!
Good luck in trading!
