    How Brexit Favored in Hitting the First Place? Read the Interview with the Winner of the April Contest from Oryol Everyone has their own path to victory. The path of Vladimir Anatolievich from the Russian city of Oryol was thorny. He managed to succeed in the April “Battle of Traders” contest at the third attempt. A trader with 10 years of experience, a Civil Engineer by profession–Vladimir has recently been trying to make trading Forex his primary source of revenue and not just additional one. Vladimir Anatolievich never lacks the determination to have things done, therefore he has the odds to achieve what he wants. In the interview, the winner shared how Brexit favored him in coming atop the standings, why he is keeping his victory from his family, as well as what strategy he chose to trade on a real NPBFX account. Let’s get to the interview with the winner and find out the answers to all the questions. - Vladimir Anatolievich, please tell us how did you learn about the “Battle of Traders” contest and why did you decide to take part in it? - I learnt about the contest through the Internet. I saw an advertisement and a link on a website. I checked the terms of the contest and decided to try. I have participated several times, but to no avail. This time everything worked out very well! - Was the victory a surprise for you, or did you purposefully go toward it? - I did it purposefully. I wanted to get a place, but did not think it would be the first place. In the end it turned out that I took the lead. - What did you feel when you discovered that you had been in the top ranking spot? - A relief ... The contest lasts for a month, and it is a strain on the nerves. I was really happy, when the company employees contacted me and said that I had taken the first place! - Vladimir Anatolievich, did any of your relatives or friends cheered up for you? - Well, I have not told anyone about my victory, I was afraid to jinx myself! (chuckles) - According to the monthly monitoring, it is clear that in February and March you were not among the top ten winners. What helped not to give up and continue to participate in the April battle? - Much of the contest depends on luck, in my opinion. If bet to the maximum, then the tiniest little mistake can deprive you of the first place, or even any prize at all. But in the third contest, everything went well for me! - Your trading result in April is almost $ 150,000: for the month of the contest you increased the initial deposit of $ 5,000 almost by 30 times! Please tell us more about your trading system. - My trading system is moving averages and a pair of own indicators. Basically, in the contest, I followed this trading strategy, but I also took risks. - During April, you made 271 transactions, the vast majority of them were in the GBP/USD currency pair. How did you manage to trade the British pound so successfully, and why did you choose this instrument as the main one? - During the contest there were a lot of news on Brexit, increased price volatility. In order to earn more, I tried to trade in pounds. The other pairs are less popular. So I chose the pound, the pound and once again the pound to take the first place! (laughs) - Do you prefer to trade advisors/robots or “manually” manage each transaction? - I do only “manually”. I have advisers, for example, to close orders, but everything is done manually–analyzing the market and then opening trades. I often read analytic reports in the Analytical portal, directly in the Personal Office of NPBFX. - One thousand U.S. dollars have already been credited to your real NPBFX trading account. Are you going to use the same strategy as you did on your demo account or try another one? - For now, I’m planning to use my strategy on a real account. Perhaps later I will make some additional adjustments. The market is changing, will see as time passes. - How often during the month of the contest did you monitor the accounts of participants? What information did you pay the most attention to? - The last 3-4 days of the contest I was among the leaders, at the first place. The runner-up hung behind me roughly by 40 thousand. On the last day, he placed me behind him, but for some reason, as can be seen from the monitoring, he did not close his trades. I thought I would take the second place. But then the pair rolled back. In the end, I was still in the first place. In the past three days, I monitored almost every 5 minutes. It was so jittery. - How do you evaluate the conditions of the "Battle of Traders" contest of NPBFX? - Well, the terms of the contest are the same as on a real account. The only thing, you can quickly catch a stop-out, if you bet on everything. I believe that everything entirely depends on luck. You can bet on everything and win. On a real account, of course, you can’t bet it that way, because you might “throw” quickly. - Vladimir Anatolievich, it would be interesting to learn more about you as a trader. How long have you been trading Forex? What was your professional path in the market? - I have about 10 years of financial market experience. A friend of mine suggested me to try trading and I did and got a bit addicted to it. I trade with varying success: one day I’m in the black, another in the red. For me Forex is an additional source of revenue. I am a Civil Engineer by profession. - Do you have any plans to change your main occupation and get by on incomes from Forex trading? - It would be nice. I aspire to this! - Tell us, please, what city are you from, how old are you, are you a family man, what are your hobbies besides trading? - I am from the city of Oryol. I am 44 years old, married, have three children. Besides Forex, I like to play video games. (laughs) - Vladimir Anatolievich, would you recommend to your friends to participate in the “Battle of Traders” contest? Why? - Sure, I would. First, it is interesting, exciting! In addition, you can win real money on a trading account, if hit the top. - What would you wish NPBFX and participants of the next “Battle of Traders” contests? - Lots of luck! - Vladimir Anatolievich, thank you for participating in the contest and for the interview. We wish you to achieve your goals at Forex!

    Engineer from Egypt got a victory in the March contest. Read the interview on how GBP and practice helped to win $1000 and iPhone Xs Just a year ago he did not know what MetaTrader 4 was and also was quiet far from financial markets. An Engineer by profession, now he prefers technical analysis and pays a lot of attention to his trading practice. Meet the winner of the March “Battle of Traders” contest Ali Mohamed Ibrahim Hosny. In just a month of trading on a contest account, the trader managed to show profit of 6000%! In the interview with NPBFX, the winner shared with us his trading system, why he preferred to trade pairs with the British pound and how popular Forex is in Egypt. Egypt is where Ali lives, so the interview was in Arabic. We offer you the translation of the interview. - Ali, could you please tell me how did you learn about the “Battle of Traders” contest and why did you decide to take part in it? - I found out about the contest from Google search. By that time, I was looking for a suitable Forex company and learnt more and more about the Forex industry as a whole. I saw an advertisement of NPBFX and registered with the “Battle”. - You won not only $1000, but also the NPBFX grand prize – brand new iPhone Xs! What did you feel when you discovered that you had won? - I was so happy, at first I could not even believe it, because the contest was challenging. But I worked really hard to win, and I am very glad that it paid off. - The struggle between you and another participant for the first place in the March “Battle of Traders” contest was absolutely unprecedented. Did such situation motivate you to move forward or, on the contrary, made you nervous? - This situation caused mixed feelings. At first, I was focused on staying at least in the top ten. But having achieved good results, I believed that I could even become the leader. The struggle was tough, at the very beginning I was a little nervous, but every day I gained more and more confidence. - How often did you monitor your main competitor and the results of other participants in the monitoring of contest? - I cannot tell you the exact number of times, but quite often. - What trading strategy did you use to increase $5000 initial deposit by more than 60 times in a month? Please, uncover some of your trading secrets to us.. - I had a simple strategy based on technical analysis with backtesting to find favorable forecasts before making a decision to buy or sell. In addition, I prefer manual control of each transaction. I was offered to trade robots earlier, but I refused. - Ali, you have made over 300 trades in a contest month. Mainly there were the following currency pairs: EUR/GBP, USD/CAD, GBP/USD. What is the reason for that choice of instruments at NPBFX? - I just simply like to trade currencies related to GBP, as I believe that these pairs are easier to predict, and some market news and online recommendations help me in trading. - What can you say about the trading conditions and the contest itself held by NPBFX? - The conditions are simple and I learnt a lot during the contest. I can say that trading with NPBFX is half the victory. - How long have you been trading Forex? Why did you decide to engage in trading? - I started trading less than a year ago. I heard a lot from others about how interesting it was, and at first I was just curious to try. Later, I decided to study the industry more closely, and now I'm on my way of becoming a professional. - One thousand U.S. dollars have already been credited to your real NPBFX trading account. Are you going to use the same strategy on your real account, as you did on the contest one? - Yeah, I am planning to use the same strategy, regardless of whether this account is a contest or a real one. I have my own strategy, and I believe in it. - Could you please tell me more about yourself (where do you live, your age, occupation, family, hobbies)? - I live in Ismailia, I am 30 years old. By profession I am an Agricultural Engineer, I like to spend my free time reading or going to the gym. - Does your family (close people) support you in Forex trading? How did they react to your victory in the “Battle of Traders” contest? - My close people do not give me any technical trading advice, but they encourage me to learn and make sound decisions when trading. Their concept of Forex is that trading requires a lot of free time and is fraught with the risk of losing money. They are very glad with my victory, and I notice that they would also like to try and already believe that trading is not something impossible. - Ali, according to your observations, are modern Egyptians familiar with the Forex market? Are there forex traders among your entourage? - It seems to me that about 30-40% to some extent knowl about the market, but only a few start trading. In my family and among my friends there are no traders, but I know several traders among my colleagues, for example. - Would you recommend to your friends to participate in the “Battle of Traders” contest? Why? - I would recommend them to participate, as my own experience helped me learn a lot and made it easier for me to make trading decisions. I believe if they go the same way as I do, it will lead them to success and victory. - Do you have any comments for NPBFX? - Remain in the same spirit, giving people the opportunity to learn and win. I love NPBFX and recommend this company to all my friends involved in trading. - Dear Ali, we thank you for participating in the contest and the interview. We wish you new victories and achievements in the financial markets! And let trading on the real NPBFX account be as successful as on your contest one! Yours sincerely, NPBFX

    AUD/USD: the Australian dollar is falling 15.05.2019 Good afternoon, dear forum visitors! NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on AUD/USD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading. Current trend AUD remains under pressure and is developing a downward trend against USD, updating local lows of the beginning of the year. The weakening of the instrument is facilitated by the tense situation around the US-China trade negotiations, which has noticeably deteriorated after the parties entered import duties against each other. The export-oriented Australian economy is very sensitive to changes in the dynamics of China's imports, so the risks for AUD also increased. Today, the pair is under pressure from the macroeconomic statistics from Australia and China. Westpac Consumer Sentiment in May slowed from +1.9% MoM to +0.6% MoM. Wage Price Index in Q1 2019 remained at the previous level of +0.5% QoQ, contrary to forecasts of growth to +0.6% QoQ. China reported a sharp slowdown in industrial production in April from +8.5 YoY to +5.4% YoY, with the forecast of +6.5% YoY. Support and resistance On the daily chart, Bollinger bands steadily decline. The price range expands but not as fast as the "bearish" dynamics develop. The MACD falls, keeping a relatively strong sell signal (located below the signal line). Stochastic is directed downwards but is in close proximity to its highs, which indicates that the instrument is oversold in the super short term. It is better to keep current short positions in the short term until the situation becomes clearer. Resistance levels: 0.6936, 0.6960, 0.6984, 0.7000. Support levels: 0.6920, 0.6900, 0.6870. Trading tips Long positions can be opened after rebound from 0.6920 and a breakout of 0.6950–0.6960 with the targets at 0.7032–0.7051. Stop loss is 0.6920. Implementation period: 2–3 days. Short positions can be opened after the breakdown of 0.6920 with the target at 0.6870 or 0.6850. Stop loss is 0.6950. Implementation period: 1–2 days.

    USD/CAD: flat dynamics 13.05.2019 Good afternoon, dear forum visitors! NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on USD/CAD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading. Current trend On Friday, the USD/CAD pair significantly decreased, renewing local lows since the beginning of the month. At the end of the week, CAD was strongly supported by a report on the labor market published in Canada in April, which turned out to be significantly better than analysts' forecasts. Thus, the unemployment rate in April unexpectedly dropped from 5.8% to 5.7%. At the same time, the employment level in April rose sharply by 106.5K, which turned out to be 10 times better than market expectations. In February, the employment rate decreased by 7.2K jobs. The share of labor in the total population in April increased from 65.7% to 65.9%, with a constant forecast. The average hourly wage in April rose from 2.32% to 2.60%. Support and resistance On the daily chart, Bollinger bands are slightly reduced, tending to reverse into a horizontal plane. The price range narrows, reflecting the flat nature of trading in the short term. The MACD indicator is falling, keeping a poor sell signal (the histogram is below the signal line). Stochastic falls more confidently and is currently approximately in the center of its working area. Current indicators’ readings do not contradict the further development of a downtrend in the short and/or super short term. Resistance levels: 1.3443, 1.3479, 1.3500, 1.3520. Support levels: 1.3401, 1.3375, 1.3340, 1.3320. Trading tips Long positions can be opened after the breakout of 1.3460–1.3470 with the targets at 1.3520–1.3540. Stop loss is 1.3443. Short positions can be opened after the rebound from the level of 1.3443 and the breakdown of the level of 1.3420 with the target at 1.3375 or 1.3350. Stop loss is 1.3450. Implementation period: 2–3 days.

    EUR/USD: a correction 10.05.2019 Good afternoon, dear forum visitors! NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on EUR/USD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading. Current trend Yesterday, EUR actively grew against USD, renewing local lows since the beginning of the month. EUR was supported by good Chinese macroeconomic statistics and unexpected optimism came from US President Donald Trump. After repeated threats and accusations of the Chinese side in disrupting negotiations, Trump expressed that the deal could be reached as early as this week. He said that he had received written comments from the head of the PRC, Xi Jinping, and could soon hold telephone negotiations with him. Meanwhile, April CPI in China in April rose by 0.1% MoM and 2.5% YoY, which met analysts’ expectations. Last month, the index fell by 0.4% MoM and increased by 2.3% YoY. Today, during the Asian session, the instrument is also growing. Investors are awaiting the publication of German Trade Balance and French Industrial Production. In the United States, April statistics on Consumer Price dynamics will be released. Support and resistance On the daily chart, Bollinger bands reverse horizontally. The price range is consolidating, outlining an approximate flat corridor in the short/medium term. The MACD grows and keeps a strong buy signal (the histogram is above the signal line). Stochastic grows, rapidly approaching its highs, which indicates that EUR can become overbought in the super-short term. It is better to keep current long positions in the short and/or super short term and not to open new positions. Resistance levels: 1.1250, 1.1285, 1.1322, 1.1343. Support levels: 1.1203, 1.1181, 1.1165, 1.1133. Trading tips Long positions can be opened after the breakout of 1.1250 with the targets at 1.1300–1.1322. Stop loss is 1.1225.

    AUD/USD: AUD is consolidating 06.05.2019 Good afternoon, dear forum visitors! NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on AUD/USD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading. Current trend Today, AUD is growing moderately after the opening with a negative gap. Last Friday, the pair managed to show quite active growth, although macroeconomic statistics from Australia remained disappointing. Building approvals in March fell by 15.5% MoM. In annual terms, the index was –27.3% YoY. Today, AUD receives moderate support from the Chinese statistics on business activity, but is under pressure from weak data from Australia. TD Securities inflation rate in April increased by 0.2% MoM, slowing down from the previous +0.4% MoM. ANZ Job Advertisements in April fell by 0.1% MoM after declining by 1.7% MoM in March. Investors are focused on tomorrow's RBA meeting on the interest rate and a block of statistics on imports/exports and retail sales in March. Support and resistance Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate a stable decrease. The price range is narrowing from above, reflecting ambiguous dynamics in the short term. MACD is declining keeping a weak sell signal (located below the signal line). Stochastic tends to reverse into a horizontal plane against the background of the appearance of an uptrend at the end of the last trading week. Technical indicators do not contradict the further development of the "bearish" trend in the short and/or ultra-short term. However, there is no need to rush with the opening of new short positions. Resistance levels: 0.7000, 0.7032, 0.7051, 0.7072. Support levels: 0.6984, 0.6960, 0.6936, 0.6900. Trading tips To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 0.7000–0.7020. Take profit – 0.7051 or 0.7072. Stop loss — 0.7000 or 0.6980. The rebound from 0.7000 as from resistance with the subsequent breakdown of 0.6984–0.6970 can become a signal to further sales with target at 0.6936 or 0.6900. Stop loss — 0.7000–0.7010.

    The employee of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Moldova won the February contest. Interview on trading strategy and the will to win At the end of February, Andrei Petrovich Chivga won a cash prize of $1000 and a grand prize –– the brand-new iPhone Xs. Andrei is a quite experienced trader from the Republic of Moldova, the city of Vulcănești. The February contest was the third in a row for Andrei Petrovich and became the most fruitful. What sort of trading instruments did the winner use in order to increase the starting $5000 by 50 times? Why did he decide to engage in trading and how will he trade on a real account with NPBFX? Read the interview with the winner who has the highest trading figures and a good chance of winning the next contest. - Dear Andrei Petrovich, first of all I’d like to congratulate you upon your deserved victory! Please tell me how did you learn about the NPBFX “Battle of Traders” contest and why did you decide to take part in it? - I learnt about the contest over the Internet, either from ads or email circulation, I’m not sure. I decided to take part in the contest as the prizes were quite good and the grand prize also made the difference. A fair prize money encouraged me to stay the course and keep going even after 2 months of the contest when I could not hit top 10. - What did you feel when you discovered that you had won? - There were a lot of positive vibes! I was really glad that I could take the first place, and also raise the capital by 50 times. - You have made 240 trades on your demo account for the contest month. At the same time, you used a relatively small trading portfolio, the bulk of which comprised trades in the NZD/USD currency pair, followed by Brent and AUD/USD. Why did you prefer these instruments in NPBFX? - Because the margin allowed to open large volumes. Although the volatility of these instruments is smaller than, say, in GBP/USD, but they are more predictable. - How much time did you spent on average a day on the contest (information analysis, trade asset selection, trading)? - An hour or two, but I was constantly monitoring the contest: both in the afternoon and in the late evening. I was monitoring the market, analyzing the table of participants’ accounts. The table was quite useful. It’s updating online, in no time, that was very helpful. - How long have you been trading at Forex? Why did you decide to engage in trading? - I’ve been probably trading for about 5-6 years on the market. In my opinion, Forex is the only trusted way to make money online. In trading I use fundamental analysis and less often technical. I don’t use indicators. - One thousand U.S. dollars have already been credited to your real trading NPBFX account. Have you made up your mind about the strategy and trading instruments to use on real account? - On a real account I’m going to use the same instruments as I used on a demo one: the New Zealand dollar (NZD/USD), the Australian dollar (AUD/USD). I have some thoughts on oil, but I am little afraid of dealing with it on a real account. I will also use the same strategy, as on a demo account, but with impaired risks. - As far as I know, you have already registered with the “Battle of Traders” in March. Are you planning to become a leader and duplicate the success once again? - I really want to, but right now I’m in the red. - Could you please briefly tell me about yourself (in which city do you live, your age, occupation, family)? - I live in the city of Vulcănești, Moldova, have been working at the Ministry of Emergency Situations, I have a child. I’m 30 years old. - Would you recommend to your entourage to participate in the contest? - I would. However, there is nobody engaged in trading among my friends, and I don’t want to impose it on. - Do you have any comments for NPBFX? - I haven’t noticed any slippage on a demo account. I think there will be no any of that on a real account either. Thanks for a limpid contest and prizes! I wish your company prosper! - Thank you for the interview and participation in the contest. We wish you more achievements in the financial markets! Best Regards, NPBFX.

    USD/JPY: dollar is strengthening 01.04.2019 Good afternoon, dear forum visitors! NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on USD/JPY for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading. Current trend USD continues to grow moderately against JPY, renewing its highs since March 20. Last Friday, there was a lot of key macroeconomic statistics from Japan and the United States. Tokyo CPI grew from +0.6% YoY to +0.9% YoY but traders were disappointed with a slowdown in the growth of Retail Sales and Industrial Production in annual terms. Statistics from the United States reflected the continued growth in New Home Sales in February and an increase in Consumer Confidence in March. Among the negative aspects are poor statistics on Personal Income and Expenditures of citizens in January-February, which was worse than market forecasts. Today, during the Asian session, JPY is moderately supported by statistics on the Nikkei Manufacturing PMI. In March, the figure rose from 48.9 to 49.2 points, with the forecast of the preservation of the value. Support and resistance On the daily chart, Bollinger bands unfold horizontally. The price range narrows, reflecting the emergence of mixed trading dynamics in the short/medium term. The MACD grows, keeping a strong buy signal (the histogram is above the signal line), and tries to consolidate above the zero line. Stochastic grows but it approaches its highs, which indicates that USD can become overbought in the super short term. It is better to keep current long positions until the situation is clarified. Resistance levels: 111.17, 111.37, 111.50, 111.68. Support levels: 110.94, 110.70, 110.45, 110.24, 110.00. Trading tips Long positions can be opened after the breakout of 111.17 with the targets at 111.60–111.68. Stop loss is 110.94. Implementation period: 1–2 days.

    EUR/USD: under pressure 27.03.2019 Good afternoon, dear forum visitors! NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on EUR/USD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading. Current trend Yesterday, EUR fell against USD, retreating to lows since March 12, under pressure from technical factors and a further decline in investor interest in risk amid growing uncertainty in the market. In particular, traders have ambiguously reacted to the situation with Brexit after the British parliament adopted the amendment and took control of the process. It is expected that today, in the parliament a vote on a number of issues with a discussion of possible options for the development of the situation will be held. Meanwhile, April GfK German Consumer Climate fell from 10.7 to 10.4 points against the forecasts of growth to 10.8 points, which was the lowest level since May 2017. During the Asian session on March 27, EUR is also weakening. Today, the investors are focused on the speech of the ECB President Mario Draghi and a number of other regulator’s representatives, such as Peter Praet, Sabine Lautenschlager, Yves Mersch, and Luis de Guindos. Support and resistance On the daily chart, Bollinger bands reverse horizontally. The price range expands from below but not as fast as the “bearish” moods develop. The MACD falls, keeping a strong sell signal (the histogram is below the signal line). Stochastic falls but is near its lows, indicating that EUR is strongly oversold in the super-short term. It is better to keep current short positions until the situation is clear. Resistance levels: 1.1272, 1.1288, 1.1313, 1.1343. Support levels: 1.1249, 1.1233, 1.1207, 1.1175.

    USD/JPY: the pair is trading in both directions 20.03.2019 Good afternoon, dear forum visitors! NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on USD/JPY for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading. Current trend The US dollar showed a downward trend against the Japanese yen on Tuesday, but today it is again traded upwards. Investors are discussing published minutes of the Bank of Japan meeting on monetary policy from January 22-23. The documents do not contain anything fundamentally new. The BoJ still maintains a benchmark for consumer inflation at 2% and is considering the possibility of additional stimulation of the economy, if the growth of inflation risks starts to slow down. The minutes of the Fed meeting, which will be published later on Wednesday, are somewhat more interesting. Despite the fact that changes in monetary policy are not expected, investors are waiting to see the regulator’s plans for a rate increase this year. The Fed may completely abandon the idea of a rate increase, or it will only do it once. Support and resistance Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate flat dynamics. The price range is narrowing, reflecting the ambiguous nature of trading last days. MACD is going down preserving a stable sell signal (being located under the signal line). Stochastic, which demonstrated a steady decline at the beginning of the week, also tends to reverse horizontally in the center of its working area. To open new transactions, one should wait for additional signals to appear. Resistance levels: 111.68, 111.89, 112.12. Support levels: 111.50, 111.37, 111.14, 111.01. Trading tips To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 111.68. Take-profit — 112.12. Stop loss – 111.50. Implementation period: 1-2 days. A rebound from 111.68, as from resistance, followed by a breakdown of 111.50, may become a signal for corrective sales with the target at 111.14-111.01. Stop loss – 111.68. Implementation period: 2-3 days. Use more opportunities of the NPBFX analytical portal: trading signals.
