INTERVIEW WITH CHRISTIAN DAVID INGA CALVACHE | #2 IN OVERALL RESULTS
Competitors' stories Dec 03, 2020
Did you have a plan, or did you decide to take advantage of the situation there and then?
I defined a trading plan whereby I established a risk unit of US$1700 per trade. If I had two stop losses, I would stop and stay within the rules. If, however, the result was positive, I continued for as long as I considered it appropriate.
In your opinion, what were the key factors that helped you to achieve the victory?
The key was risk management and complying with the rules of the tournament, that kept me in force throughout the competition. I also set a goal for the final balance and this is why I didn’t take any more risks at the end of the tournament.
Were there key moments on the path to winning the competition: planned decisions, luck or crucial errors?
Of course, there were key moments, which combined a bit of luck with planned decisions. For example, on the first day of the competition I made a supremely positive trade but as the platform failed, I couldn’t close it, and I ended up breaking even. They then informed us that they did not count this day and that they had postponed the beginning of the tournament. Later, everything was more grounded and as I said before, I fulfilled my trading plan without breaking any of the tournament rules.
