    Chinese Forex Championship, which was held at ForexCup, became an important event for the whole Forex community. The great prizes and bonuses from FXOpen, lots of participants convenient contest conditions and time period made it the key conversation topic all over the world.

    [​IMG]
    No doubt, the name of the winner set curiosity agog. Finally, the name of the Best Chinese Trader became known – it is Chuan Feng Lin. Over the 8 trading weeks he made a 1060% profit. This outstanding result provided the leader with the honorable title, US$ 3000 as the main prize and the cash bonus in his real account.
    Forex Cup Team was lucky to ask the leader a few questions. In the interview you can find out the winner’s attitude towards trading, some secrets of his strategy and the reasons that pushed him to participate in the tournament.

    1.Could you please tell us a few words about yourself?
    My name is Chuan Feng Lin, I am 40 years old. I live in China, in Ping Tan. I am married. I work in the sea food industry.
    2.Do you have your personal “way in Forex”? Could you please describe what your first incentive for trying Forex trading was? What did you start with? Do you remember your first trade?
    I started my trading career in 2012, not so long ago. So, I can’t consider myself as a very experienced trader. I started from a pure interest in the growing Forex market – as many other people did, I think. Unfortunately, I do not remember the very first trade because I made hundreds of them.
    3.Do you have someone or something encouraging you to upgrade your trading skills day by day?
    Actually, not. I am fully self-taught. I am working out my trading skills without any external stimuli. My progress is one o my main goals.

    4.What is trading to you: the main source of income or just a nice pastime, which helps you earn some money? Are you fully devoted to trading?
    Forex is not the main source of my income. I would say that I enjoy trading, develop my skills and sometimes get some profit.
    5.Do you trade in a real account? Are you successful in it?
    I haven’t trade in a real account yet. It seems to be one of my plans for the nearest future.
    6.How did you learn about ForexCup? Have you ever tried participating in other Forex-contests held by different brokers?
    One day I came across the ForexCup ads somewhere in the Internet. At that time I had already got some contest experience from other projects.

    7.What are the advantages and disadvantages of the ForexCup competitions? What can you offer to change or improve?
    From my point of view ForexCup holds excellent trading contests. One of the main advantages is sizeable prize and bonus funds – usually they are much bigger than sums offered by other companies.
    8.Let’s pass to the Championship you won. What did you feel when you gained the victory?
    I should say that several times I was really close to the victory but I had never won before. So, at the end of the Championship I was very happy and excited.

    9.There are lots of traders in China – so, how did you decide to participate in the contest with so many competitors?
    I didn’t hesitate at all and easily joined the Championship. No matter how trivial it is but the main thing for me is participation, I was not worried about the scale of the contest.
    10.Did you have any particular strategy at the beginning of the contest or did you work it out on the spot?
    I didn’t have any prepared strategy. All my steps were based on the current market situation.

    11.How can you describe you trading decisions? Were they carefully thought over of spontaneous?
    Most of my trading decisions were carefully considered and weighted. But I also took risk.

    12.What was your favorite trading instrument in the Championship?And what tools do you generally prefer?
    I prefer non-USD pairs, because they volatile and show interesting dynamics.

    13.Did you follow the results of your competitors? Were you scared of someone’s results? Or did you feel confident and relaxed?
    I didn’t follow the results of other contestants. I tried to do my best and was totally concentrated on that task.

    14.What do you feel now when you are the Best Chinese Trader?Are you proud of yourself? Does the title motivate you to go ahead and upgrade your trading skills?
    I should say that I am very proud of my results. Right now I am as motivated to move forward as never before.

    15.You’ve got a PAMM ECN account a sizable deposit in it as a reward – are you excited to start your PAMM manager career or would you prefer a money prize only?
    Honestly, I would take “live” money as, I am sure, many other people would.

    16.How do you plan to manage your PAMM ECN account?
    I want to develop the account so that it could help me make profit. I don’t want to miss an opportunity to become a goodPAMM Manager.

    17.Are you going to participate in other forex-contests again, after being awarded such a great title?
    Yes, sure! Right now I believe in myself I have all chances to win again.

    18.Could you please give some tips to newbies and to all those still planning to join ForexCup contests?
    Develop your skills, believe in yourselves and you will definitely win! Good luck!

    The Best Chinese Trader has once again proved the fact that self-confidence and determination are enough to achieve your goal and become the winner. Leave your doubts and you will succeed!

    FXOpen extends its multi-currency accounts offering by launching trading accounts denominated in Bitcoin (MBT), Litecoin (LTC) and Gold (GLD). Bitcoin and Litecoin are available as account currency when opening Crypto accounts, and Gold is available for ECN and STP accounts.

    These accounts have exactly the same benefits and trading conditions as ECN, STP or Crypto accounts denominated in USD or another currency. The only difference is that Bitcoin, Litecoin and Gold will be used as the “base asset” to display balance, profit and other parameters of your trading account in MetaTrader 4 (MT4).

    For your convenience, we have used smaller, “fractional” values, comparable to 1 USD or 1 EURO, as units of the base asset for these accounts:

    • 1 GLD – 0.001 troy ounce (equal to approx. 0.03 grams of gold) – for Gold-based accounts;
    • 1 MBT (1 milli-bitcoin) or 0.001 BTC – for Bitcoin accounts;
    • 1 LTC – for Litecoin accounts.

    FXOpen is the first Forex broker to offer clients MT4 accounts denominated in Bitcoin and Litecoin. Coupled with direct BTC and LTC deposits, these accounts make up the industry’s unique offering, allowing clients to deposit, trade and withdraw profit with no conversion costs and minimal commission (only 0.001 BTC for withdrawals).

    Gold, unlike currencies, is not affected by inflation and is more resistant to price fluctuations. This is one of the reasons why gold has shown a strong “bullish” trend over many years. By storing your funds in a Gold-based trading account, you are more likely to secure your funds against economic and political instability, as demand for gold is known to rise in a crisis economy.

    Open a Gold-based MT4 account via MyFXOpen > Add New Account > ECN or STP and select GLD in the "account currency" drop-down list.

    Open a BTC or LTC-based MT4 trading account via MyFXOpen > Add new account > Crypto and select MBT or LTC as "account currency."

    ForexCup team would like to inform you about the end of the Asian Forex Championship 2014!
    During 8 trading weeks the global Forex event wasreally popular all over the world. It was the subject of disputes and admiration by thousands of traders who discussed the event in different Internet-platforms.

    The Championship ended on Friday, July 27. And we must admit that it was one of the large-scale ForexCup events. Check out the statistics:

    • The number of participants totals 1251 traders. It’s quite impressive, isn’t it?
    • The best result of the contest is 852% of profit;
    • The incredible main prize is US$3000 (and do not forget about the additional bonus for successful trading);
    • As for the bonuses — the bonus fund was shared among 195 participants;
    • And the contest provided all participants with priceless experience, knowledge and skills — that is something that can’t be estimated in the money equivalent.
    But the main question remains open — who is the winner?

    The leader of the Asian Forex Championship 2014, the Best Asian trader, the owner of the main prize and the additional bonus for successful participation is Changhang Peng from China. His 30th ForexCup contest appeared to be a smash one forhim. It’s time for him to enjoy the success and start PAMM trading withFXOpen.

    Two more dignified traders got into the TOP-3. The second place belongs to Shu Wen Huang from China, who made 700% of profit. The third — to Nurjahan Begum from Bangladesh, his 663% of profit let him join the leaders.

    We would like to congratulate winners and thank all active participants of the Championship!
