LAMM reward system becomes easier

Starting from October 1st Grand Capital changes the reward system for LAMM accounts. Previously LAMM managers were required to select a type of reward, by a trading period or by each trade. However, this system left investors with a lot of questions. In order to make trading more transparent for investors and more easy-to-grasp for both parties, we decided to abandon one type of reward and completely switch to the other, reward by a trading period, i.e. reward for total amount of trades of the investor for a certain period of time. For instance, if a manager selects a 24-hour period, they will once a day receive the commission for a client's trading on this day. Managers can choose the period length individually. The shortest period available is one day.

All managers who now use "commission for a trade" or "percentage for a trade" reward systems must contact our client support before the 1st of October and set the desired period length and reward percentage. Those who fail to do so before the October 1st will be automatically switched to 0% reward percentage.

Contact our support team by phone +7 (812) 389-66-79, by email info@grandcapital.net or via online chat on our website.

Interview with contest winners: “Successful traders take risks”

The winners of our contests are quite sure that a successful trader spares no expense on education, is always ready to take calculated risks and listens to more experienced traders. Read the opinions of the three of our most recent contest winners. Who knows, maybe their stories will help you to get to the top. Read, learn and dare!

Natalya Filliova, Russia, the winner of 201th round of Rally Trade

"I often participate in trading contests because I like the competitive spirit and the emotions associated with it. I tend to choose shorter contests. That's why after I won Drag Trade I decided to try Rally Trade and now I finally made it. I think I won thanks to a good AUDUSD movement, I managed to place the positions in time and it all worked out. The hallmark of a successful trader is a huge amount of time invested in education, That's why I advise the beginners to learn and make calculated decisions."

Tadeusz Kubala, Poland, the winner of 202th round of Rally Trade

"I'm 61. Until recently I owned a business, but now I work at a factory. I started trading about 10 years ago. I always liked the field of finance. Forex is very popular in Poland. I think the reason is that the technology education here is on a high level. I mostly trade USD/JPY, USD/CAD and EUR/USD. When I trade I alternate between technical and fundamental analyses. For example, I won this round thanks to the latter: Canada's GDP went up 0.3% this June and I figured that Canadian dollar would grow stronger.

All in all, financial market trading is not a very difficult thing. The real art of trading is in controlling your emotions. At the same time I think that a successful trader doesn't shy away from risk and has a strong spirit. I chose Grand Capital because of low minimum deposit, low spread, the absence of requotes and the safety of funds. My advice for the beginners is to deal with stress, not to be afraid to change your strategy and set adequate stop losses."


Ebrahim Nejaddarzi, Iran, the winner of 385th round of Drag Trade

"I'm 41 and I'm a teacher. I've been trading for 10 years. At first, I used to lose a lot, but now I focus on money-management and risk management. My most memorable trade was at the time of Brexit. Then I profited a lot from selling the GBP. I use a combination of moving average 55 and Ichimoku. I trade mostly USDJPY, GBPUSD and EURUSD. Demo contests help to understand the market better. I won this round thanks to fast decision-making. But the beginners should only make decisions based on thorough analysis of the situation and not on intuition, and learn from the others' experience."

Grand Capital launches the first blockchain-based secure Forex marketplace

UserPostedImage

Grand Capital has been providing online trading services for over 10 years. During this time we became a prominent member of the global broker community. Participation in major industry events enabled us to compare our own experience with others. We analyzed the current situation on Forex and binary options markets and realized that the industry needs to change as there is still no means for traders to feel secure on the worldwide scale, when working with foreign brokers.

We teamed up with our tech partners from UpTrader and set out to solve this problem. Now we are ready to present Serenity Financial, the first blockchain-based secure Forex marketplace for traders and brokers. Serenity acts as an intermediary that controls both parties. The platform utilizes modern technology, including cryptocurrencies and blockchain, which ensures the integrity of all trades and withdrawal transactions.

Funding of the platform will be as transparent as its operation. We invite everyone interested in the project to participate in Serenity Financial ICO. Pre-ICO starts as soon as mid-November. Learn how the platform works and read about the ICO on Serenity Financial website.

Denis Kulagin, Serenity Financial CEO:

"Serenity is a unique project. It has all the potential to change Forex market and solve a lot of problems traders face. Serenity uses blockchain technology to record all trading and non-trading transactions. The platform stores funds and provides liquidity to brokers. It's Forex reinvented, a united, secure and honest Forex for everybody."

The project is already supported by a number of brokerages and fintech companies which are ready to act as both partners and participants of the project.

Dmitry Rannev, one of Forex pioneers and CEO of Rannforex:

“I've always stood for transparent Forex. The project aims to increase transparency on the market, hence I support it. The idea is quite interesting and I think that it has all chances to evolve into something great.”

Follow the news about Serenity on Facebook, Twitter, Medium and Youtube.

Interview with contest winners: "Everything that happens here depends only on you"

Among the recent contest winners are a water supply company employee, yoga teacher and a future Master of Laws in Taxation. The common theme of this interview round-up is that experience helps. Learn not only from your own experience but also from the experience of others.

Oleg Zharskiy, Russia, the winner of 204th round of Rally Trade, received no-deposit bonus of $500. Oleg had already won Drag Trade contest before.

UserPostedImage

"I'm 54 and I'm a junior manager at the city water supply plant. My work schedule allows me to spend time on my hobby, which is Forex trading. Although in summer I'm usually distracted by other things, and the Internet access is awful at my dacha. I've been constantly participating in Grand Capital contests. I think that all these contests are great, each in its own way. I joined this round and started trading only three hours after the contest began, but I won nonetheless in the end. Although to a large extent I won thanks to the opponent's mistakes, who took the second place. Late in the contest he got nervous and started losing. Can anyone become a trader? I don't know. The important thing is to like it, if you're not interested, you're not going to get very far. Before I begin trading, I read analytic reviews for about an hour and choose a strategy. I pay attention to indicators in my trading terminal. I will continue to trade. After all, experience comes with time."

Marina Zorina, Russia, the winner of 57th round of Future Trade, received no-deposit bonus of $1000.

UserPostedImage

"I'm 38. I teach yoga and I like to travel in my spare time. How did I get into trading? I was looking online for a job or just a source of extra income. So I was introduced to the currency market. I've been trading for about 10 years. Last year I managed to triple my balance when the market was very volatile. It was a great achievement for me. At first, I had lots of difficulties, of course, both with learning how to use trading software and with understanding the points of entry and exit. In this contest, I used indicator-based strategy. When I trade on a real account, I usually base my strategy on the channels lines, intraday support and resistance levels. I like that Grand Capital offers various contests, both for demo and real accounts. Future Trade is a demo contest, meaning the money isn't real. It's important since not everyone has a couple hundred dollars to spare from a personal budget. Still, a market is a market and no one can provide you with guarantees. Everything that happens here depends only on you, and on your skill and experience. The contest is a great opportunity to earn a decent income without any investment."

Christoph Schneider, Austria, the winner of 389th round of Drag Trade, received real $200.

UserPostedImage

"I'm 26. I study economics at a university and now I'm working on my Master's thesis, it's about the influence of taxation on transportation prices. I started trading three years ago on the advice of my friend. It seems to me that in Austria and Germany people are less interested in investing in financial markets than in other countries. Everyone here is very cautious about it. Trading is a proper analysis of data. If you want to achieve something amazing, you have to follow the news and choose a correct strategy. I attended a couple of courses on finance as a part of my education, so I learned the basics there. But mainly I learned trading on my own. I started with combining short-term and long-term strategies. Surprisingly it brought results immediately. For a long time, I engaged in intraday trading and traded binary options and DAX CFD (Germany's major stock index). Recently I got interested in precious metals, coal and Russian stock index. It's because I think that there will be a correction soon on American and European stock markets. When I choose a broker I pay attention to the range of offered trading instruments. And, of course, the possibility of trading small amounts with a low spread, since my funds are not so big yet. With Grand Capital, I trade Russian stock CFDs and metals that aren't offered by other brokers. The most important for beginners is a good risk management. Place stop orders and make sure that your account balance stays liquid, it helps you react to unforeseen circumstances."

Interview with contest winners: “I’m always on the market”

Meet two winners of Rally Trade and one winner of Micro Trade in our new interview round-up.

We think it’s very reasonable to learn from others’ experience, that’s why we try to make our interviews more useful for beginners. The winners talk about their winning strategies and provide advice on risk management.

Maksim Meshkov, the winner of the 205th round of Rally Trade, received no-deposit bonus of $500

“I’m a veterinarian. First I got introduced to the market in 2014. I started with binary options, they were aggressively marketed at the time. About a year later I started wondering about Forex. At first, I was learning the basics on my own. However, I quickly realized that those massive amounts of information were really confusing. So I enrolled in a course and everything was broken down for me and I started to understand what trading is. My trading day starts before the European session. One of my rituals is getting all unnecessary things off the desk and getting my monitors ready. My most successful trade involved GBP at the time of Brexit. I was bold enough to hold the position and took 1100 points. But greed and emotions got the best of me on the same day and I lost half of my profit. Mostly I trade with GBP/USD and GBP/JPY. The second pair is very volatile and can get you 400-700 points in a day. Sure, you can easily lose just as much. My favorite strategy is Price Action. When I choose a broker, I pay attention first of all to how long they’ve been working on the market. Grand Capital is one of the long-living companies. Among other advantages are excellent order execution, low spreads and fast withdrawal. The only thing I’d add is one more contest, specifically for binary options.”

Maksim Abramov, Russia, the winner of the 81st round of Micro Trade, received 300% of the difference in account equity

“Now I work as a tire fitter and I’ve been trading for about 10 years in total. During this time I had my ups and downs. I have a mathematical mindset, that’s why I find use for my skills in trading. I think that the most important thing for a trader is the ability to control emotions. Many give up after big defeats. I’m not one of them and I always go all the way. Actually, I’m always on the market. At any given time I have some open trades. During my years of trading I have tried many strategies, but I stuck with the levels. Now I trade with breakouts of daily maximums and minimums, and my favorite instruments are the dollar, the pound, the yen and gold. When choosing a broker I look at the reviews and trading conditions. I abandoned my previous broker because they implemented a limit on the amount of simultaneously open trades. I don’t like to be constrained. I’ve been participating in Micro Trade for a long time, but I never won anything. Probably my trading was a bit raw. Now everything is fine in that department.”

Amadeu Costa, Portugal, the winner of the 206th round of Rally Trade, received no-deposit bonus of $500

“I’m 50 and I’m a programmer. I started trading a year ago. I like analyzing financial markets and following the economic statistics. I have a predisposition towards bearish trends, so it can be a bit of a problem on a bull market. I studied various strategies, but I’m not really well-versed in all that. I mainly rely on my intuition and macroindicators. However, the psychology of the market sometimes can be so irrational. Recently I placed a marvelous trade: I earned 1000 Euro with the deposit of 10 Euro. But in the next trade I lost all my profit. I’m a short-term trader, sometimes I win and sometimes I lose. Among my favorite instruments are DAX index and EUR/USD, GBP/USD pairs. I’m only beginning my trading career and trying to earn enough money for deposit in contests. I liked Rally Trade for being a short contest and the results were available right away.”

Interview with contest winners. Mechatronics engineer from India talks about risk management and scalping

The winner of the 392nd round of Drag Trade lives in India, works as a mechatronics engineer and has been trading on financial markets for about five years. Pongurlekar Sunand Sudhir told us how beginners should polish their skills, what strategies should be used with scalping and how to choose a broker.

Tell us a little bit about yourself, how old are you, where do you work?

I am a 27-year-old engineer with graduation in Bachelor of Engineering Mechatronics. My work is related to automation and robotics, I have to calibrate machines to work in the desired manner with the help of computer programming.

How did you start trading? How did it all begin?

I started with Forex trading during my final year of studying engineering so I have been around the world of Forex for about 4–5 years. I started Forex trading when I looked at the volatility in Forex market during major economic data releases. I found this volatility as an opportunity to place trades. Initially, I started with a demo account and have been participating in many contests including those conducted by Grand Capital for more than 3 years. It is only last year that I started trading on live accounts so I am still a novice when it comes to trading on real accounts.

How popular is trading in India?

Forex trading was somewhat less popular in my country when I began 5 years back. However, nowadays there is more awareness about Forex trading in India and many brokers are offering local bank deposit/withdrawal option at competitive exchange rates to Indian customers. Many international brokers have their partners and IBs in India and even some have opened up offices in India.

How did you learn to trade?

I learned to trade from reading technical analysis books, technical analysis research of analysts, watching Youtube videos and attending seminars organized by brokers.

As a novice trader, I experienced a lot of problems with risk management and placing stop losses to exit losing trades. As a result, I believe that the paramount factor in Forex trading is how to manage your losses.

What’s your trading style? What strategies do you use?

The volatility is my best friend. My trading style is scalping and news trading during important economic data releases. My prime trading strategy involves scalping and using technical tools such as moving averages, Bollinger bands, MACD and Fibonacci levels on short-term charts like 1m, 5m, 15m. I believe in cutting my losses as quickly as possible and never average the trades.

What are your favorite trading instruments?

I prefer to trade mainly major Forex pairs such as EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY, USDCAD, AUDUSD and EURGBP. I believe they have the best liquidity and as a result the tightest spreads of all the asset classes which is important while scalping.

What do you look at when choosing a broker?

I mainly look out for tight spreads, faster execution of trades, no hassle in deposit/withdrawal of funds, security of funds and lastly, local bank deposit/withdrawal option for Indian customers. In fact, I opted Grand Capital for the local bank deposit/withdrawal option. Also, I admire the way Grand Capital organizes contests regularly.

What are your impressions of Grand Capital contests?

As I said earlier, I like demo contests and moreover, your Drag Trade contest is a high reward contest as the winner stands a chance to win a prize in a duration of only 1 hour. Drag Trade contest offers high initial capital of USD 100 000 so even if you make few losses then also you can recover and come back.

What piece of advice can you provide for beginners?

Lastly, I am myself a novice trader but if there was one piece of advice I would give to rookie traders than it would be "Do not worry about your profits but restrict your losses to a minimum and the profits will follow".

I would like to conclude by saying only this quote "The world of Forex is very fickle so our job is not to reason why, but our job is to only sell and buy".

P.S. Learn the contest rules and sign-up for the next round here.
