Trader of the month earned in August over 10 000 $ [Tickmill Contest]

created Paweł Mosionek12 Września 2017

We know another winner in the Tickmill "Trader of the Month" competition. A trader with the pseudonym AD made over $ 31 in 10 days, generating a 000% rate of return.

Tickmill doubles the prize
From September 2017, the broker will be able to select not one and two traders of the month, where each of them will receive an award of 1000 $

Even 20 flights per transaction

When analyzing the history of AD transactions, you cannot help but get the impression that you are dealing with an automatic trade (Expert Advisor). The trader of the month 'August 2017' is based on pending orders (and sometimes their entire grids) issued at various times of the day. The statement itself has as many as 30 pages, although only about 90 transactions were finalized. All positions were opened on only three major currency pairs - EUR / USD, GBP / USD and USD / JPY. The volume of orders is impressive, which in the first week of August reached 10.0 lots for a single position, but then almost all the time for 20 lots. On average, one transaction yielded a profit of $ 111.

The capital curve of the AD trader

Transaction history in numbers:

  • Profit: $ 10 170,65
  • Return: 30,04%
  • Total number of transactions: 91
  • Profitable transactions: 56,04%

Interview with a trader

How long have you been involved in trade?

I have been actively trading since 2 for years.

How did your adventure with Forex trading begin?

I lost money (all) trusting the bad Account Manager.

What is your trading style?

I use the knock out and tight stop losses.

Do you have any risk management policies?

Yes, I am using a lot of lots on each job.

Describe your best / most-remembered transaction (How much did you earn? What strategy did you use? On which pair?)

I do not have such ones yet.

What advice would you give to novice investors?

Do not give up, after every bad position a good position will appear. Go ahead and work on your skills. Always want more.

Considering the current market situation, what do you think data / investors should pay attention to?

In recent times - central banks.

What is the most important thing you expect from a Broker?

Fast and reliable execution of orders.

competition rules

The trader is selected by the Tickmill Jury. The win is not only determined by the rate of return - it is the total that matters. Overall, i.e. the factors such as earned profit, position management, risk and trading skills are taken into account. There is also one more necessary condition - interviewing the broker and consent to make the account history public. Only then does the prize of $ 1 go to the trader's investment account.

The principles introduced are aimed not only at showing that you can make money on the Forex market, but also consciously educate and encourage sharing experience with other traders.
