How did the guys learn to be investors
– At the currency section, a cautious investor made the decision not to hope for sharp jumps in the dollar and play a little difference, the participants of the competition continue to tell. – The strategy has borne fruit. While the aggressive dunce decided to go all in, having read a speculative review on one of the analytical portals, playing with leverage. However, the meeting began abruptly, stop orders, of course, were not placed and, thanks to the latest news from France, the aggressive investor not only did not make a profit, but went into negative.
Initially, the derivatives market was the easiest in terms of earnings: 200 points up, 200 down. It turned out to win and growth, and in the fall. However, the events of the next Monday brought all achievements to naught. Contrary to expectations of a further fall, the RTS index rose sharply. A trading session that was missed on Monday helped to finish off the investor’s profit.
The stock section pleased both investors. On the eve of the dividend payout season, both subjects bought shares of leading companies. And they were not mistaken with the choice! At the end of April, a more cautious investor was in the lead, but by the end of the competition on May 31, the risk taker took the lead, his gain was 12,700 rubles, while the cautious investor managed to earn 7,300. The total prize fund of the competition is 8 million rubles. Until July 7, players remaining in the positive, apply for a win.
After that, the prize fund will be proportionally divided between the winners. A participant can claim the prize, who in total in three markets received 3,000 rubles during the competition. profit To participate in the competition, you had to register with any broker (eleven in total), who is a partner of the competition. The most popular broker among the winners of the competition was Otkrytie Broker JSC (this is indicated by the largest amount of total investor income). By the way, the total winnings of all participants amounted to about 41 million rubles.
At the end of the game, the guys made the following conclusions:
It is not always necessary to be overly cautious. In the case of the stock market, a cautious investor could make a big profit. At the same time, aggressive behavior in the market can lead to disastrous consequences. Find a middle ground.
You need to competently use leverage. This is a potential way to increase your income, even with small capital. However, its rash use in conjunction with impulsive decisions can play a cruel joke with you.
Be sure to set “stop orders”! During your absence, even if short-lived, something truly ominous can happen behind the trading terminal.
Do not take analytical ideas and expert reviews as literal truths. Take their opinions into consideration, but be critical.
Want to learn how to play the market – spend real money!
– You know, I decided to write on behalf of an ordinary speculator with 25 years of trading experience on the exchange. And all my experience says: oh well, this competition! Because in the competitions must necessarily be real money. No money – it’s just pshik!
Why did the leading brokers and the stock exchange take this step? Because the number of active clients, individuals over five years has decreased by half. According to the Moscow Exchange in February 2017, this is just over 100,000. And this number includes people who have several accounts with different brokers. Therefore, we must do something and attract investors and speculators to the market.
The fact is that on a demo account you will never learn how to trade and earn. This is the same as teaching a person to hold an ax in theory and, without letting him ever cut down a real tree, discuss with him a plan for harvesting wood. Perhaps some of the participants in the competition will really like to trade and they will really come to the exchange. But then learn normal trade will have to re-start: to trade on the account, albeit with a small, but real money. This is completely different from playing toys called “stock trading” on a demo account.
So I can give one piece of advice. If you want to try what stock exchange trading is – open an account with any broker, deposit 5-10 thousand rubles and start … The terminal at Russian brokers is free, the commission for independent trading is minimal. Only when real money goes through your account, then you will understand what real exchange trading is. If it turns out, start slowly to add money to your account. At the same time carefully analyze your mistakes and work out your own strategy. Participate in real money contests, such as the Best Private Investor. Successful to you trades, gentlemen!
