INTERVIEW WITH OUR TOP 10 FINALISTS OF SG’S ACTIVE TOURNAMENT

INTERVIEW WITH OUR TOP 10 FINALISTS OF SG’S ACTIVE TOURNAMENT

Interview with Top 10 of the Tournament Leaderboard: Yi Xiang

This post was originally posted here. This is Yi Xiang who is currently in the top 10 on the leaderboard, out of over 2,000 participants.

We did a quick lookup on his tournament portfolio here and he currently has a return of 18.6%!

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?
Yi Xiang: It has been 2 years since I started trading and I usually trade the U.S. markets.

What’s your profession?
Yi Xiang: I am currently an University Student.

How did you start trading and what got you started?
Yi Xiang: I first started my trading journey in SGX stocks.
I would say what got me started initially was my interest in Finance. I was serving my National Service back then and in my free time, I liked to read books on investing and trading. After gaining some knowledge, I decided to put what I learnt to real-life applications and that was how I got started.

So what’s your usual trading plan like?
Yi Xiang: I will study the charts of the stock(s) that I am looking to trade and determine the entry price, stop loss level, and take profit target. I usually will not meddle with my plan unless there are significant events/news that would impact the stock.
I will also read the news released the previous night and in the morning to keep myself updated on market happenings.

Then how do you usually determine entry for a particular trade?
Yi Xiang: For trading, I rely mostly on Technical Analysis and market sentiment. I will look at candlestick patterns, support & resistance, trendlines to determine the three price levels mentioned in the previous question. I will enter at or near support & resistance levels, re-test of trendlines, or after a certain candlestick pattern is formed.

How do you usually determine an exit for a particular trade?
Yi Xiang: I also base my exit based on Technical Analysis. As mentioned previously, I will exit at support/resistance levels, or when the price touches the trendline.
I might also exit if there has been a change in market sentiment due to reasons such as sudden news release.

Finally, what would you say to new participants & traders of this year’s tournament who want to trade well?
Yi Xiang: To trade well, you need to have a proven strategy. As this tournament is using virtual capital, it is a really good chance for aspiring traders to test out their strategies without the risk of losing your own hard-earning capital.

So I hope that through this tournament, participants would be able to find strategies that suit them. Also, I hope everyone will learn more about DLCs through this tournament and hopefully be able to incorporate DLCs in their real trading.

Finally, I would like to wish everyone good luck in the tournament and enjoy the trading process!

screenshot-2020-10-08-at-12-11-42This post was originally posted here. This is Goh Jing Wei who is currently in the top 10 on the leaderboard, out of over 2,000 participants.

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.

Interview With Our Top 10 Finalists Of SG’s Active Tournament

Interview with Top 10 of the Tournament Leaderboard: Kenny Chia.

This mini-interview series is to showcase some of the prominent participants of the tournament leaderboard and what propels them to be able to trade well.

screenshot-2020-10-05-at-15-29-25

This post was originally posted here. This is @kennychia, who is currently top 3 on the leaderboard, out of over 2,000 participants.

We did a quick lookup on his tournament portfolio here and he has a return of 42.2%!

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?

Kenny: I have been trading for around 6 years. I mainly trade in the SG, US, and HK markets.

What’s your profession? 

Kenny: I am an undergraduate.

How did you start trading and what got you started?

Kenny: I started in the SG market with blue-chip counters and REITs. I got started after being inspired by the idea of financial freedom and passive income.

So what’s your usual trading plan like?

Kenny: I screen the price charts of counters and focus on those with clear trends or showing signs of a reversal. As opportunities do not come by that often, I tend to hold a concentrated position whenever I come across one.

Then how do you usually determine entry for a particular trade?

Kenny: I use simple support and resistance levels and moving averages to determine the optimal entry price.

How do you usually determine an exit for a particular trade? 

Kenny: I exit the position once it reaches my target price or stop-loss price. I will have an initial target price and stop-loss price before entering the position but will review them over time and adjust them if necessary.  

Finally, what would you say to new participants & traders of this year’s tournament who want to trade well?

Kenny: Take this opportunity to learn and make as many mistakes as possible. You will find out what works and does not work for you.

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.

Interviews with A Finalist of SG Active Trading Tournament: Justin Tay

Interviews with A Finalist of SG Active Trading Tournament: Justin Tay

This mini-interview series is to showcase finalists of the tournament and what propels them to be able to trade well.

This post was originally posted here. 

Today we have Justin, who is a Top 10 Finalist in the ongoing Final Round of the SG Active Trading Tournament, trading under his moniker @gangel. He has risen to the Top 10 by beating 2,000 other participants of the tournament.

gangel

We asked the following questions and this is what he had to say:

How many years have you been trading and which markets do you usually trade?

Justin: I have been trading for 6 years, mainly focused on SGX. Just started US market and HK market recently due to the higher liquidity.

What’s your profession?

Justin: I am currently in my final year of my PhD studies. I am also a licensed pharmacist and work part time in one of the retail pharmacy chains.

Wow, that’s impressive! How did you start trading and what got you started? 

Justin: I started trading under the influence of my dad, who gave me a small start up capital to trade. He taught me some basic trading tips like price action and volume. From there I went on to learning how to do some basic chart and learn about some indicators. Some of which I have adopted ever since.

So what’s your usual trading plan like?

Justin: Usually I will decide on how big I want to trade, whether I have the capital to pick up or just playing contra before entering a trade. I like to make use of the GTM/GTD function so that my lots will be in the front of the queue. I also tend to queue slightly below the resistance zone so it has a higher chance of getting filled.

Then how do you usually determine an entry for a particular trade?

Justin: I do so by identifying support zones either through trendline support, moving average support so forth or wait 1 day bounce off from support zone for confirmation. On top of that, I will also try to look for signs of reversal with some of the indicators to convince myself to go in for the trade.

How do you usually determine an exit for a particular trade?

Justin: I do so usually by identifying resistance zones, either by historical high or trendline resistance. or when the tides change very suddenly.

As this tournament focuses on trading Daily Leverage Certificates (DLC), what is your experience trading DLC? 

Justin: It’s like a double-edged sword: it can magnify your profits or losses very quickly.

Finally, what would you say to new traders who want to trade well?

Justin: It’s really important to start from the basics of support and resistance, learn how to read the graphs and prepare to stop loss if the trade do not go in your favour. Once the price has moved up from your entry price, can consider doing a trailing stop loss strategy to reduce your losses.
