Trading IQ Game 2016 World Champion  Albin J Czarnik

Comment from Roger Jan 10th 2017

Albin beat a total of 239 opponents and demonstrated a characteristic which has been seen before in the Trading IQ Game and that is extreme persistence.

On this page I wrote many years ago I highlighted the fundamental differences between winning and losing traders. Albin's performance is a fine example of a winner continuing to try over and over again in contrast to the loser who trades a few sessions, loses a bit of money and then quits.

Albin created multiple accounts and wiped out a few times until eventually he got 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the table. The four place finisher JF3 made a grand effort and played 55 games in one day and very nearly held onto 3rd place, the 9th placed finisher PP13 showed a lot of promise and I would welcome him back next year.

Here is Albin's winners statement

As an attorney and an active market participant, I appreciate educational tools that enhance one’s practical skills and Roger’s IQ Game is such a tool. The Trading IQ Game forces new traders to recognize certain market patters and teaches them to react to those conditions at their own pace. One of the best things is that traders get to rely on their own observations without unnecessary distractions in form of any indicators. I enjoyed playing for fun and learning at the same time.

The Trading IQ Game 2015 World Champion Don Khun

Comment from Precision Trading Systems


Don beat 262 opponents and scored an impressive 2013 Trading IQ, he played 53 games in this excellent performance.

As in past World Championships there was a huge division between the average trading score and those who really know what they are doing.

One of the aims of my website is to educate traders to push their abilities to fulfil their true potential.
The ingredients to success in trading have one consistent factor which is vital and that is PERSISTANCE, Don who finished 2nd last year certainly showed he has this quality.

Donald Khun wins!



The winners comment from Don Khun ID DK1 2015 Trading IQ Game World Champion.

 

I would like to Thank Roger for Designing the Trading IQ Game,  and all the prizes offered by Roger and  Precision Trading Systems.   I would also like to Thank the other Major Sponsors  “ Ninja Trader” and “ MultiCharts”  for the Prizes they have offered as well.   The Trading IQ Game is Excellent Learning and Practice for anyone with an interest in trading, or improving their current trading.     Those who have a desire to get a better feel for various market conditions and to experiment with risk and reward / stops etc,  will greatly benefit from spending time learning with this game.   

I am really looking forward to Incorporating Roger’s other Indicators offered in this prize.   I have been Subscribing for some time to Roger’s -  “Precision Pi-Osc” and the “Precision Divergence Finder”.     These are Both Excellent Indicators I rely on, and I am expecting the others will also be excellent indicators.    So really looking forward to using them as well.

Introducing the 2014 Trading IQ Game World Champion Hemal Sharma

Comment from Precision Trading Systems

Hemal beat 220 opponents and scored the maximum 2021 Trading IQ. He played only 23 games but was impressive in his performance.

I notice many players returning week after week and getting average scores of 1200 - 1500 they don't seem to improve. Not many people have what it takes to succeed in trading. Hemal clearly demonstrated a good understanding of trading.

 

 

The winners comment from Hemal Sharma HS1 2014 Trading IQ Game World Champion.

Having traded the "Flash Crash" when it happened so knowing what to expect was a great help. The Trading IQ game highlighted all the different market characteristics and behavioural patterns one should expect when trading. It pushes ones psychological boundaries and tests the emotional state of mind.
I would like to thank Roger & Precision Trading Systems for creating an epic game, and look forward to incorporating the proprietary indicators in an Algorithmic trading system

The Trading IQ Game 2013 World Champion Nigel Dixon

Comment from Precision Trading Systems

Nigel beat 412 opponents and scored the maximum 2021 Trading IQ. He played only 30 games but was very fast to understand how to get massive profits.

I notice many players returning week after week and getting average scores of 1200 - 1500 and they don't seem to improve. Nigel clearly has a deep understanding of trend trading.

 

The winners comment from Nigel Von Dixon ND2 2013 Trading IQ Game World Champion.

 

First, I would like to thank Roger for this excellent Trading IQ Game that has taught me much about risk management, timing, position sizing and more. I would also like to thank my parents for supporting my trading and other business ventures. I would also like to thank my brother Mario Lowe and his Wife Chaunte Lowe both great people and traders who I can always count on for anything.

 
I started off trading stocks in High School maybe 4 years ago using a little bit of real money. After 1 year of trading I just about broke even. Unfortunately I accidentally left a trade open, and my account sunk down 80%. A short while after, I transferred to the FOREX and began a long road of strategy testing which I am finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.

 
I am really excited to continue using The Trading IQ Game as well as Rogers trading tools and utilize the content on his website. In closing, I'd like to leave everybody with this: Never Stop Learning!

The winners comment from Liam Garrity Rokous LGI the 2012 Trading IQ Game World Champion.

19 years old from Clifton Connecticut USA.

The Trading IQ game has been a huge help for me with learning how to invest. Playing the Trading IQ game has helped me realize the rewards that can be gained from sticking with with a positive trend, and the risks of not setting a stop price at the right level. I played the game each week and, as the game's data changed, I learned to adapt my strategy for each new week.

I am really excited to try out the new indicators because, after using some of the free indicators, I can tell that every indicator Roger offers is top notch. I would like to thank Roger for creating such an amazing website and for giving each member a chance to win some amazing free indicators.

Roger pushed me to be the best that I could be and I will always be thankful for that. I would also like to give a personal thank you to my teacher, James Watt, for challenging me to continue to improve my score each week in order to beat him, and for telling me about the website in the first place. It is clear that without his encouragement I would never have gotten as much out of the website as I did, or even heard about the website in the first place. I look forward to playing the game again next year and pushing every trader to improve.

I would like to end this by quoting the 2011 World Champion, Kevin Brown, who once said (after making several billion) "If only it were real money!"

See the prizes on offer.

Introducing the 2011 World Trading IQ Game champion Kevin Brown 50 from Georgia USA.

Congratulations to you Kevin.

 

Kevin achieved a World Trading IQ rating of 9,773 which was way above the the normal scoring range.

He stated that detecting volatility and price action to adjust his risk percentage and stop distance before placing trades had led to his huge improvement.

Kevin was entitled to receive a $1000 cash prize, but instead he opted to receive $250 cash plus Mach-Trend Platinum pro, which was a nice gesture as it demonstrated his high regard for my products.  To my amazement, Kevin is not a full time trader, but trades only in his spare time.

 World champion Kevin Brown's comments  ( If you win the 2013 Trading IQ Championship your photo and name will be here all through 2014)

 

I have been interested in investing and trading for over 20 years now. I started out as a clerk and eventually became a broker for E.F Hutton (remember them?) Later I changed career paths and went into software and management consulting.

Ever since my broker days I have been fascinated with the markets. Today I am limited to trading in my spare time so I prefer to focus on position and/or swing trades using strategies that I can implement with end of day data and filters. More recently I have been interested in using options as a proxy for equities to help control risk.

It is literally man versus machine for the individual trader or investor today and you need all the help you can get.

I think Roger's website is fantastic. The indicators are top notch and the site offers valuable no nonsense information for traders of all experience levels.

The trading game is an eye opener and the pages dedicated to risk management and optimal risk calculations are a must read.

I really like this game and I believe it really helped improve my awareness of trends in stock price. The game also helped me to become more patient when setting stops for my risk, and I learned to hold those stops as long as the overall trend hadn't changed. I increased my risk in later trials of the game which drastically improved my overall Trading IQ score. I look forward to playing the game again in future weeks.

Precision Trading systems wishes to thank the following people for their help with my site and projects
Benny Varghese (Kerala state, India)

 He proved to be an excellent programmer and was very patient in creating all the fussy details for this game. The job went on much longer than anticipated but Ben did not complain, he just kept on working 7 days a week and completed the whole job to a very high standard. It all turned out much better than I had expected. A very likeable character who I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. Thank you!

 

 

Ika Balzam (Tel Aviv, Israel)   www.net-comet.com

 

 He aided me in DNS set up for my sub-domain of the game, and worked very fast with high efficiency. He flew threw all the complex settings using a program called "putty" as I watched via remote desktop.

I listed the job on vworker, and got 450 views, but Ika was the only person who accepted the work. Very good at his work, a true professional and a good person. Thank you!

RISK DISCLOSURE

 

  • Futures, Forex and Stock trading contain substantial risk and are not for every investor.

  • An investor could potentially lose all or more of the initial investment.

  • Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle.

  • Only risk capital should be used for trading

  • Only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading.

  • Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

 

HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE DISCLOSURE

 

Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. no representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
