We're pleased to present the winners of the latest round of Trader Wars, Elena and Artem Sibisov, who held 2nd and 3rd place, respectively. We asked them to tell us a little bit about themselves and to share some of the secrets of their success.
It's great that you two trade together as a family. To be honest, this is a first for us! It would be interesting to know how that happened? Elena, you mentioned that you were introduced to the world of Forex by your husband. How did he go about doing this?
The world of Forex was introduced to me gradually through conversations with friends and acquaintances, then the idea came to me that I might give it a try, but nothing more. I don't think I would have given it a try if it weren't for my husband suggesting it. We made various attempts at finding ways to earn money online: some were disappointing, and others didn't leave us with the results we were looking for. That's when my husband decided to give Forex a try. Little by little he studied, read various material online, made graphs, downloaded indicators and advisors, and shared everything with me. So, I eventually took a liking to it and we started doing it together.
Do you two help each other out when trading you do you prefer to trade separately? Have you two come up with any common strategies? Do you back each other up?
Of course, it wouldn't be possible if we didn't help each other out. We advise one another and exchange ideas. However, sometimes we trade separately. It's not always the same.
Does Forex interfere in your family life, or does it in fact bring the both of you closer?
Trading together and having common interests always bring people together. We do sometimes have disagreements, but this is just a part of the process and there's no avoiding it. We both understand this.
What instruments do you usually trade?
Recently, we've taken a liking to the EURUSD currency pair and are working on finding a new trading strategy. Sometimes we use other major pairs, and also AUDNZD, for long term trading.
What training materials would you recommend for novice traders?
We can't recommend any specific training materials, but there are many online resources to choose from.
In the US they like to make New Year's resolutions, which are certain goals that they set for themselves for the upcoming year. What goals would you set for yourself in 2019?
Our most important goal is to get a home of our own. I would love to make this a reality in 2019. We will continue to work to accomplish this long-cherished goal!
