One Million in Two Weeks with InstaForex!

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

InstaForex always provides you with the latest updates on international market events as well as company’s news. Today we would like to tell you about an exceptional situation. Despite its originality, it demonstrates the unique opportunities you can get on exchange market. Recently, one of our clients Akhmad Arief made the daydream of millions of traders real. After two weeks of active trading, he managed to increase his start-up capital up to $1,000,000!

This story began when Akhmad opened his $1,000 trading account with InstaForex in the beginning of July. During two weeks he was trading such currency pairs as GBP/USD and EUR/USD. Nobody expected that he could become a millionaire by the middle of the month using risk strategy!

«We have never seen such trading before and will hardly see soon. Even in conversion to the working days the yield was 100% per day during 10 days in a row. The profit volume is astonishing as well as the length of such win-win and risk strategy as the client used all the money on his account for the next deal. But every time lady luck was on his side,”- Aleksey Badjyanov says, representative of the Dealing Department.

Chart

The chart shows the balance of #2065757 live trading account. Within the first two weeks of July, the account holder earned over one million US dollars with the initial deposit slightly more than one thousand US dollars. Eventually, the account balance was running $1162092.42. The second half of July appeared to be far less successful for the customer: he lost all his profit.

Having earned $1,000,000, Akhmad decided not to stop. However, Forex market is known to be very unsteady due to frequent oscillations and change of trend directions. Successful deals were followed by deals opened against the trend direction which led to profit loss.

Of course, foregone million disappointed the trader. However, Akhmad is not in despair and is already planning to win again. For him, as for many other traders, this situation was indicative of endless possibilities on exchange market which proved that one can make up a fortune out of modest capital! Nevertheless, it is important to benefit from the achieved results and also not to be affected by the astounding success.

2065757Interview with Mr. Ahmad Ariff:

IFX: How long have you been working on Forex?
AA: About 5 years, starting from 2007 until now. Before, I used another platform with another trading system (different from MT4) that limited me to less money I could earn. Then my friend recommended me InstaForex that used MT4, so I can trade higher trading volumes.

IFX: It’s a dream of every trader. How did you manage to make fortune from such a small initial deposit?
AA:
Depends on the graf (high-recommended to sell, low-recommended to buy), besides, I used Forex trading signal, RSI, PPO, stochastic, technical analysis, and future fundamental analysis.

IFX: What currency pairs have you traded?
AA: My favorite are EURUSD, GBPUSD and AUDUSD.

IFX: Why have you chosen them in particular?
AA: For me, fundamental points of these currencies are easier to read and forecast..

IFX: What leverage have you chosen for trade?
AA: I start with 1:200. And I will change this parameter if I need in the Client Cabinet. This is a very attractive feature of InstaForex.

IFX: Did you plan to earn such a huge amount when started trading?
AA: Of course, yes.

IFX: You made a dream of a million traders come true, what do you feel after losing it?
AA: Really really frustrated… I was not in front of my PC when it happened. I was engaged in outside work during that time… so I couldn’t close my open position.

IFX: Do you plan to repeat it and get a million back?
AA: Yes!

IFX: If you succeed to make a million again, what will you spend it for?
AA: Clear all my loan, buy a new house, new car, do other investment and some charity’s work.

IFX: What in your opinion helps traders earn on Forex: their skills or good luck?
AA: Skills are very important, as a trader, a lot of new traders, should learn some basics, such as indicators, patterns, technical analysis, and fundamental analysis, but good of luck not all traders get it.

IFX: Do you think your profit was a result of your hard work or just an accident?
AA: I’ve 5 years experience as a trader. It is hard to become rich with small initial deposit, but if you’ve a lot of money, let’s say USD100,000 and more, you can rapidly earn money in short term..believe it!

IFX: What will you advise the beginning traders?
AA: For new trader, please learn some basics, follow your leader, ask them why, why and why and most important is gain experience in trading.

Competent active trading and compliance with you trading strategy make it possible for every InstaForex trader to reach the most cherished objective and add a new name to the list of the most successful traders.

Good luck in trading with InstaForex!

The material is prepared by InstaForex PR Department with the consent of the owner of the trading account № 2065757 Akhmad Arief. In October, in the terms of ShowFx Asia in Singapore there will be a video interview with the trader which will be published on GC InstaForex resources.

IFX: Elena, you represent Ukraine in the beauty contest, yet you count yourself as a decent representative of Asia. What about Asia appeals to you so much?
EO: The thing is that I represent East Ukraine.:) I have been mesmerized by the culture of East since school. Asia has been always beckoning me with its preserving from ancient times patterns of life and thought. I was to India recently, which brought me even closer to magnetic Asia, I felt the bliss of Harmony. I believe that East safeguards Truth and Love nowadays. I am now much into the philosophy of India, balancing the spiritual and the material in me.

IFX: Are you a leader for life?
EO: I do not make any special efforts to be the first; I just live listening to my heart. Some might say I am a leading person, while others would call me a led person.

EO: What I would like to have is the ability to teach people real love. There would be no unhappy people then.

IFX: Which gifts do you enjoy most? Tell us about the most memorable and pleasant present you have been ever given?

Moreover, in 2006 Angelina Jolie together with Bred Pitt established a charity — Jolie/Pitt Foundation donating the funds to Doctors Without Borders. Second, this fascinating woman is the ideal of beauty for me.

IFX: In your profile you wrote that you are into psychological science and that you practise NLP. Do you apply these methods to your friends and relatives? Are they of any help in life?

Miss February 2012: a girl that did not know how to take compliments…

Monday, March 5th, 2012

big_f1e605df1053a695Charming and cheerful Regina Gorlanova was chosen as the miss of the last winter month. Shortly after the registration, Regina has managed to break through from the newly-accepted participant to the leaders. At the moment she keeps the leading positions in the top 10 in Insta Asia beauty contest . In her interview miss February told us why Jakarta attracted her so much and that her ideal man should be quite far from ideal…

IFX: Hello, Regina. The final of the contest is quite far, do you consider the miss February nomination as your little victory?
RG:
Hello! Yes, I’m very pleased with that kind of attention from the management, thank you.

IFX: How did you learn about the InstaForex? Have you ever had any experience of cooperation with our company before the registration in the contest?
RG:
Actually, I’ve learned about the company only when I took part in the contest. My former classmate and friend, who is a Forex trader, proposed me to take part in the contest. This is new and interesting experience for me so I accepted this invitation with great pleasure!

IFX: What made you take part in Miss Insta Asia contest? Dou you really want to win or the prize is not the reason why you have registered in the contest?
RG:
Firstly, I was so excited that I checked the rating and comments every day. But as this contest is very long, I decided to let it take this course. This is an interesting experience; it is similar to an online game. I wouldn’t say that the victory is my sole intention; for me the participation itself is interesting.

IFX: Have you ever taken part in any contests including beauty contests? (If you have, then in which ones and what places did you take)
RG:
I’m not a gambler in my nature and I’m not very fond of contests and competitions. I took part in the contests only if my friends encouraged me to do so.

IFX: Tell us about yourself. What are your plans for the future after the graduation from university?
RG:
I do modeling and acting and this really inspires me. Thus, I’m not sure that shortly after the graduation I will work as graphic designer. Perhaps I will try myself in another field.

IFX: Do you like the long-term planning for years or at least months? Can you follow the plan precisely or do you take the most of your decisions spontaneously? Do you think it is important for a Forex trader?
RG:
No, I absolutely cannot manage the long-term planning! I’d better deal with plans for a week or even for a day. I like spontaneous events and decisions, as they give a lot of emotions. I like the unpredictability but sometimes the planning is necessary. Expectations can bring too much worry, so I to take it easy.

For a Forex trader it is important, of course, to elaborate its own strategy and follow it, to be aware of the peculiarities of the world market. A trader must know how to analyze and forecast events but it is also important to take spontaneous decisions and change one’s plans. Moreover, you should have a good intuition and not to afraid of risks!

IFX: Suppose you were invited to play a role in cinema, what character would you consider interesting to play and why?
RG: I like different genres of cinema and different characters. To reveal my actor’s potential and for my personal experience I would be interested in playing the opposite characters or the characters of different genres– from cartoon or comics to deep emotional drama.

IFX: Which of your qualities are mostly appreciated by your family?
RG:
It is quite complicated to speak of your virtues especially from the point of your family. But I often hear that my family appreciates my support, compassion, understanding, care, easy temper and sense of humor, I suppose. Without these qualities it is quite hard to live in this world.

IFX: You are quite creative person according to your hobbies and photos. As any creative person you must have some “peculiarities”, mustn’t you? Would you tell us about the strangest event in your life?
RG: The strangest event…that’s an interesting question. Something like eating salty crackers with sweet jam? It is quite hard to speak of your own peculiarities. I think other people see a lot of them in me…The only thing I can say is that I don’t like compliments as they make me laugh and I want to run away. It’s strange because to my mind every girl should know how to take compliments. I do not know how to do that yet and I can take them only if they are concrete and true.

IFX: In your questionnaire you mentioned that you like travelling very much. What places that you visited were the most remarkable for you?
RG:
Each place is special and dear to you in its own way…Certain meetings, events, atmosphere are remembered in your memory and heart. At the moment I can say the most remarkable for me was Indonesia, particularly Jakarta. This place is wonderful: there are a lot of nice and friendly people, interesting events, you can always do what you like. The place is perfect as it combines opposite things: wildlife and industrial architecture, wealth and poverty, work and entertainment. Though there are a lot of talks about Bali and how many Russians are there. I hope to visit this island one day.

IFX: What is your ideal man?
RG:
Ideal man…first of all he should not be ideal. Little imperfections make the person more attractive, either its individuality or appearance. I like smart and kind men with easy temper. Sense of humor is also necessary. I like men that can make you laugh and laugh by himself, men with eloquent eyes, cheerful smile and big beautiful hands!

IFX: Do you think that the beauty can save the world?
RG:
Absolutely, the beauty can save and it saves the world! But it is also necessary to consider not only the outside beauty but the inner beauty as well. If a person is beautiful inside, he will be beautiful outside. But whatever beautiful your face is, you cannot be attractive without the inner beauty. All people try to be beautiful but in different ways. You should choose the right one.

IFX: Your figure is perfect! Would you tell us your secret: is it sport, beauty salon or the nature’s gift?
RG:
I’m very flattered, thank you very much, though I don’t think so. Surely genetics is important for figure but actually any figure can be beautiful. The point is how you feel in your body: comfortable or not, whatever they say. It is important to show the advantages of your figure. But if you are perfectionist then you should do sport, eat healthy food and love yourself. This is the key to your success. Personally, I like sport and enjoy physical exercises; I like healthy food. But to be honest I’ve never been obsessed with this as the nature let me not to do so! And I cannot help eating something sweet, this is my personal passion and the secret of the good mood.

IFX: Regina, at the moment your rating is one of the highest. How did you manage to collect that large amount of votes in the shortest period? Why do you think the guests of the site vote for you?
RG:
Personally I have no idea of how do the people choose the one from the whole amount of these charming girls. Do they look at each one or immediately stop at the one they liked. So I cannot say anything on this subject. I simply hope that people enjoy my photos and feel a little warmer and energetic when they see my look. And I’d like to thank everyone who voted for me. I’m still surprised but I’m very grateful, it’s appreciating. Thank you!

IFX:Regina, we thank you for your interesting and informative answers. We wish you every success and let your dream –trip to Bali – will come true!

Miss January 2012: “I have never been happy with following the “earn-spend-earn” principle…”

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

big_922384831b5a84aaA young mother, trader, financial adviser and author of a book for children – it is all about Marina Zhabina, a participant of the Miss Insta Asia beauty contest coming from Khabarovsk. She managed to be top-rated from the very first days of the contest. We decided to find out what it takes to combine all the above mentioned roles.

IFX: Good day, Marina. We would like to start off by thanking you for giving us an interview. Please tell us a little about yourself.
MG: I got a degree in the field of construction and programming, however, against logic, I work in the sphere of finance. I am a financial adviser, helping people get on well with their own money.

IFX: A constructor-programmer?
MG: Yes, an engineer-constructor and programmer. My speciality is automated building design systems. To tell the truth, I do not know what made me choose a truly male profession.

IFX: How did you come to work in the financial sphere?
MG: It was a chance that brought me to the world of finance! In the age of 20 I got an idea that even though we are taught many subjects, there is a huge gap left: we lack knowledge about our money. Presently, schools and institutes are introducing disciplines developing financial literacy. I have never been happy with following the “earn-spend-earn” principle, so I started to search for relevant information and people who could share their knowledge, and eventually I found them!

IFX: And then you became one of such people…
MG: Exactly! Money is an integral part of our life. Even though people say that money cannot buy happiness, lack of money troubles makes them much happier. I am glad I succeeded in solving these troubles.

IFX: In the profile you described yourself as “a creative yet mathematically inclined person”. How do you manage to reconcile the mathematical mind with the creativity? Is such duality advantageous in life or on the contrary?
MG: Since the age of 4 I have written verse and prose, painted pictures, attended a music academy and theatre studio, took dance classes; so by the moment of entering a higher education institution I had creativity overdose. That is why I chose a technical speciality. At that time I was in love with advanced maths: I could solve three pages of logarithmic equations in one go. However inclination to creativity overruled my zest for maths: I found a job in the TV industry and spent two years managing my own project. By the way, I am presently completing a fairytale. I can’t wait for my fairytale to be published.

IFX: Please tell us more about your book.
MG: Well, the book is titled A Little Big Secret. This is a fairytale which teaches to set goals and achieve them, believing in yourself. The book is a kind of practical guide for children put as a fairytale. I am planning to present part of the released copies to Russian orphan asylums as it is especially important for children without parents to find a source of self-efficacy belief.

IFX: In your profile you also said that you are an achiever, so you have a goal-oriented lifestyle. What is your main achievement in life so far?
MG: I am proud of everything I have today. In every sphere I am engaged I show results highly assessed by others. For instance, there are no people of my age holding a leading position in my professional field. Top managers thought it was impossible. But I did it, even though I do not attach prior significance to having a job because I have a year-and-a half old son. So, this is the achievement I am the most proud of. My friends keep wondering how I manage everything: raising a child, showing excellent results at work, looking after myself, cooking meals three times a day and exploring something new.

IFX: How did you learn about the Miss Insta Asia beauty contest? Why did you decide to participate in it?
MG: I began cooperation with InstaForex Company at the end of the last contest season. Then I decided to take part in the contest if there is another season. I am a woman, apparently, a beautiful woman. And I am a trader; I would be happy to employ the main prize in trading. The victory would bring me closer to the goal of publishing my book. I guess it is not worth mentioning charity which I do it regularly. Showing myself is not a real motive as well: there are many other ways to do it. I just came to win!

IFX: You also donate money to charity, don’t you?
MG: Yes, I do, for a long time. It is quite simple. I regularly transfer funds to accounts of reliable charity funds, sometimes to accounts of certain children in need for expensive treatment. It was a shock for me to learn how many children actually need support. Every little helps! This method is more effective than finding a person or an organization to pay for the treatment of someone’s child.

IFX: Our contest is called Miss Insta Asia. Marina, what does Asia mean to you?
MG: I was born and presently live in the Asian part of the Russian Federation. But real Asia is something more than just a place on the globe. Asia means seducing eyes of Indian women, wisdom and diligence of Chinese people, honour of Japanese samurai and passion of Caucasians. Asia implies a numerous contrasts. Moreover, Asia is home for 4 out of 7 billion people of the world.

IFX: To your mind, are women coming from the Asian part of Russia and from Asia as such different from European women?
MG: In my opinion, Asian women are true women in the ancient meaning of this word. They are real domestic goddesses. As for European women, they are mostly emancipated and independent.

IFX: What about you? Which group do you belong?
MG: I am fortunate to have such a good man beside as my husband. He makes me a true woman. After all, a woman’s greatest strength is her weakness. And I can be weak!

IFX: What was the starting point of your forex trading way?
MG: It was my desire to open up to the opportunities life provides. There was a certain period when I was considering all offers I got. I went through a lot of offers; Forex persisted.

IFX: What is your current attitude to trading on the foreign exchange market? Do you regard it as a permanent job or rather a hobby?
MG: This is my job which makes most part of my income. Besides, I am now strengthening partner relationships with InstaForex Company: I am planning to open a representative office in the city I live in.

IFX: It will be our pleasure to cooperate with you. Thank you very much for the interview. We wish you luck in both the contest and trading!
