We did a quick lookup on his tournament portfolio here and he has a return of 30.4%!

We asked the questions that followed and this is what he had to say.

How many years have you been trading and which markets do you usually trade?
Goh Jing Wei: Recently, I just reached the age which is eligible for trading. Therefore, I do not have years of experience in trading.

What’s your profession?
Goh Jing Wei: I am a student at Ngee Ann Polytechnic. (Course: International trade and business)

How did you start trading and what got you started?
Goh Jing Wei: I watched many Youtube videos and many traders sharing their trading process and strategies.

So what’s your usual trading plan like?
Goh Jing Wei: I have not started trading with my real money as I have just reached the eligible age of trading. I plan to do swing trading or position trading but I am still exploring the different options and strategies.

Then how do you usually determine entry for a particular trade?
Goh Jing Wei: I will research and find investments that have a high probability of large movements in the future. I will avoid investment which likely has small movements or fluctuations.

How do you usually determine an exit for a particular trade?
Goh Jing Wei: When things have gone according to my plan and I believe it has reached the highest profit possible, I will exit my position.

Finally, what would you say to new participants & traders of this year’s tournament who want to trade well?
Goh Jing Wei: Only start trading once you are confident and understand things well. Trading without knowing what you are doing is the same as gambling.

But, it’s not over. FINAL ROUND will begin soon from 12th October to 23rd October, where the tournament’s Top 10 finalists will compete against each other. You may view more details of our tournament’s Final Round as well as their portfolios and trades here.
