What our traders sent us
Participation in the Challenge has definitely improved my trading. I learned the consistency in the implementation of the strategy and the principles of money management. I started to treat losses as an integral part of trading without emotional pain. The realized SL allows me to play further, showing only that the market behaved differently than expected by my system. And, as we know, every game is random and independent and can result in a profit or loss. A good system, thanks to its statistical advantage, will have more winnings than lost games.
At the moment I’m a full-time mother who is looking for something I can do to bring income while I work from home. I know about Forex and I have always been interested in trying it but I have never had a chance to trade until now. I was introduced to forex by two friends. They taught me how to trade gold and I also did my own research and learned how to trade currency pairs by myself. This is my first trading account ever and I am so delighted that I passed both the Challenge and the Verification each in 10 trading days. I learned a lot every day. I stayed focused and paid attention to hourly chart, which is my main time frame, but I also keep looking at 30 mins, 15 mins, 5 or even 1 min time frame as well.
Passing the Challenge gives me courage and increases my belief in my skills. I have followed the trading rules and easily passed that Challenge. FTMO Metrix helped me a lot to judge my positions. In a hurry to finish, I failed once in Verification level and started again and I completed my Challenge in 10 days on 20 Sep 2018. When I writing this feedback I already completed my Verification level on 4 Oct 2018.
Participating in the challenge has been a great learning curve for me so far as it puts you under pressure to perform. Even though I have made a lot of mistakes in my trading along the way I know for sure that I have been improving all the time.
