“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.”

Hi, Mr Yu, congratulation on winning the 2018 ACY 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.

ACY reporter: 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 emphasise 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.

ACY reporter: 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.

ACY reporter: 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.

ACY reporter: Thank you for sharing with us, Mr Yu! And congratulations again. We hope to see you again in our 2019 Asia Trading Cup and win $USD150,000 in prizes!

Mr Yu: Thank you! I am glad to be here.

Compete, Share and Socialize – A Forum For All Traders

Many contestants like to research on global financial markets because that helps them spot more trading opportunities. Here are some hot topics for you to consider when you prepare for 2019 Asia Trading Cup competition.

From Dec 2015 to Dec 2018, the US Federal Reserve has raised cash rate from 0.5% to 2.5%, which led to a sharp depreciation of other major currencies. However, in 2019, the Federal Reserve committee faces an unfamiliar dilemma with rate projections, raising the debate of whether to keep the rate unchanged or cut it. What’s more, in the oil market, the effort made by OPEC to curb supply and prop up oil prices faced a fatigue moment in June. Compared to forex and oil market, the price of gold soared over the past two months.
