I started trading about two years ago part-time.
How did you learn about WSDT?
I am currently a member of Tradenet and was asked to participate by Mr. Andy Mills.
Why did you decide to join the competition?
To learn how I can manage large share sizes with a demo account to overcome my emotions which came in between when I used my real account.
What was going through your mind when you learned that you were among winners from one of the TOP 3 teams?
It was an amazing feeling knowing the fact that there were over 6000 people competing. I felt a great accomplishment.
Did you really expect to become the winner? Was it your ultimate purpose?
I really didn't expect to be in the top ranking but I definitely wanted to be in the top 50.

In the chat room, I sometimes use Gil Paz and follow his stock picks.

I was trading stocks which were gapping up or down +3%.
Will you take part in the competition next time?
I am definitely going to take part in the next competition.
What should you focus on more to become the winner of the next-year competition?
I need to make sure that from day one I increase my share size to full potential.
What would you recommend to the WSDT team to make the competition better?
