In celebration of the new season of the hugely popular Game of Thrones TV-series, we invite you to find out which GoT character best represents your trading style!
Unless you're from outer space or you've been living under a rock for the last six years, you've probably heard of Game of Thrones. Imagine living in the Seven Kingdoms of Trading: which character would you be and how would you fight for yourself in the challenging world of Forex and CFD trading? Mismanaging your funds or being too greedy, you'll be sent in the dungeon... or worse – off with your head!
Let's have a look at the main characters and find out which one of them you're most similar to...
1. Cersei Lannister: The Emotional Trader
Arguably, all traders are emotional. Of course, some can handle those emotions better than others. If you can't control your emotions, you might end up just like Cersei on her walk of shame through King's Landing.
If this type of trader is you, then you likely have strong feelings about everything. Once you see a good opportunity to trade, you'll marry that trade and stay with it no matter what happens. Only death can part you from the position you opened.
Learn how to control your emotions and increase your chances when arriving at "the final battle".
2. Jon Snow: The Protective Fighter
The only main character to be killed and resurrected during the seasons. He's a brave fighter who rescues wildlings and makes big decisions swiftly. Jon was really merciful in killing Mance Rayder, just before being burnt alive.
There are many people who've made wrong decisions when trading and who've had to literally resurrect themselves, by making a new deposit. If you only make a mistake once and learn from it, you are a smart and brave trader. There are also many traders out there who are continuously fighting against scam brokers, making sure others don't "burn alive".
On top of everything else, traders must make big decisions, which means that all of us have a little bit of Jon Snow in us.
Remember to practice good risk management and make use of our Volatility Protection Settings!
3. Daenerys Targaryen: The Visionary Trader
The visionary trader has their eyes on long-term targets and won't be distracted by background noise. You know where you belong and are willing to do anything to get there, even if you have to wait for a long time to realise your target.
Just like Dany, as a visionary trader you'll do anything to reach your ultimate goal, changing your lifestyle if needed, re-allocating money, making time, and setting priorities. You acquire as much educational material and supportive resources as possible before making their move, just as Dany did with her armies and fleets during the battles.
Don't forget that you'll only learn how to trade in real trading conditions. Also, make sure you attend some of our seminars or webinars to get practical knowledge. You can also start trading with a Live account with as little as 200 USD. You will need that experience later on to win your trading "battles".
4. Tyrion Lannister: The Community Trader
If this is you, you're probably active on every possible forum, not just asking for opinions, but taking advice from everyone. You attend all seminars and webinars because trading is a lonely profession. You may personally know all of the employees working for brokerages and are perhaps even on first name terms with them. You're also very political, trying to deposit some amount of money everywhere, receiving plenty of information in exchange.
Once this trader commits to trading 100%, he is sure to be a lot more successful.
If you think about Game of Thrones characters, they are all committed to their goals and devoted to a higher priority. There is no plan B for them. They will fight till the bitter end.
Are you committed to trading, willing to learn and practise? Start now and use your newly acquired knowledge in your live trading. Forex and CFD trading can be risky, so you'll need a strong shield to defend yourself. Our Volatility Protection Settings and Negative Balance Protection policy can help keep major price movements at bay, allowing you to confidently open a Live account and deposit funds, ready for your next battle!
You'll also need need a strong sword to slay those pips and, hopefully, increase your horde of treasure! Admiral Markets' MetaTrader 4 Supreme Edition plugin contains an arsenal of weapons – 56 advanced tools for your trading platform. With this plugin, you'll be able to use new types of Stop Loss and Take Profit orders and also trade on tick charts if you prefer scalping strategies, and so much more...
At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what kind of trader you are, if you know how to exploit the strengths of your character, then you'll definitely be on the right track! But whatever you do, don't lose your head!
Enjoy your trading, guys!
