Hi, Mr. Yu, congratulation on winning the 2018 Asia Trading Cup. Could you give us a brief introduction of yourself?
Mr. Yu: Sure! My name is Yu. I am thrilled to participate in the 2018 Asia Trading Cup, and thanks to this competition for my BMW dream. I work as a real estate agent. However, after work, I consider myself a serious trader.
What about pre-competition? Did you do any preparation before the contest?
Mr. Yu: Yes, I did. Because I am more familiar with EUR/USD, I mainly use the Moving Average indicator to analyse this currency pair before the contest. The trick is to apply different moving average that emphasize on the activities of EUR/USD in different periods. Notably, a few minutes before and after nfp (non-farm payroll) data was released, I spent the most time on studying the 1-minute moving average, 3-minute moving average, and 5-minute moving average. Analysing it helped me place my first trade and point me in the right direction.
Could you describe your trading style and strategies to us?
Mr. Yu: Gladly! I like to spot trading opportunities in high-volatile forex pairs. And I believe that the most volatile market happens after a currency pair just experienced a significant market shift. For example, I often get into the market once a dominant trend hits its turning point and get out before it turns again. I think I can use the word “scalping” to describe my trading strategy. But like I said, volatility is the key. The more fluctuate it gets, the more profits I can make.
Did you apply this strategy during the contest? And did you use any other strategies in the contest?
Mr. Yu: Yes, I did apply this strategy during the contest, and it did help me. However, I think what led to my ultimate success were my experiences with EUR/USD and my habit to trade in large positions. In my day to day trading, I develop a habit of raising positions when I spot trading opportunities. This habit shaped my trading mentality and enabled me to have the right mindset in the contest and led to my success.
Thank you for sharing with us, Mr. Yu! And congratulations again. We hope to see you again in 2019 Asia Trading Cup and win a million cash prize!
Mr. Yu: Thank you! I am glad to be here.

The First Live Competition Night
The first live competition of the Asia Trading Cup was held at the popular and prestigious E-Sports Arena where its ultra-high-tech facilities provided a world-class audio-visual experience for spectators and participants alike. The competition officially started at 7 pm, with all the outstanding entrants ready to put their trading skills and strategies on the line. Using real money to trade, winners were recognised based on their net returns.
The top three winners on this first competition will directly advance to the Final Live Competition, compete with other qualified participants for the championship and win up to $150,000 in cash prizes.

Your Trading Strategy and Education - Trading with large volume does not guarantee that every trade will be a winner. Anyone aspiring to be a successful FX trader needs a solid foundation that includes trading education, using the right trading strategies, having the right trading tools and a robust trading plan for different market conditions. Like trading other financial markets, participants in the forex market need to be aware of the risks and rewards the markets can offer. A big part of one’s trading success is learning how to manage risk. There are internal and external factors that can affect the level of risk in the market. As an FX trader, you need to have a solid risk management strategy to increase your chance of success in the markets.
The Second Live Competition Night
The second live competition happened on the same day as the first Non-Farm Payroll (NFP) data was released in the US.
Considered as a high-impact event, the NFP usually creates high volatility in the markets. A perfect set-up for traders who were undoubtedly put to the ultimate test of their mental toughness and trading skills. Once the NFP data was released the market pulled back and traders did their best to adjust their trading positions to profit from the price movement.

The Asia Trading Cup is a fun, challenging and financially rewarding opportunity for those looking to test their trading strategies. Put your trading skills to the test against other FX traders from around the world and give yourself a chance to win prizes as well as the prestige of being recognised as the Asia Trading Cup Winner.
The Final Night
The Asia Trading Cup ran for four months. It gave participants multiple opportunities to win up to $150,000 in cash prizes at the final competition night.
The 1st Asia Trading Cup was a tremendous success and highlighted the trading skills of the contestants and all those who participated.

Congratulations to the winner, it was an amazing level of Forex trading.
