The Contributor of the Month for January RESULTS


Recommended Posts

The Contributor of the Month for January is over! I would like to thank everyone who contributed this month to help bring the Community to life, and apologies about the later than usual confirmation to the winners. This is the third time in as many months that we've given away £500 worth of prizes (over three places), however it will be the last competition until further notice. For those who are unaware, you can check out the original post here.


Hopefully the more veteran members here will have seen activity and discussion increase over the last few months on the back of this, and we hope this will continue as we slowly integrate Community into the wider IG ecosystem. 


small.pngAs before, the decision making process was a tricky one. We didn't want to focus purely on post count, and instead we were looking for the Community member who helped bring the community to life. This would include posting interesting trade ideas, helping others, answering questions, and adding interesting rich media such as picture, videos, and links. 


1st place goes to  who has continued to provide a good post count, especially on cryptocurrencies, and viewership of the forum. He authored 13 solutions, accepted 18, and had a 'Likes to Post Count' ratio (i.e. how many likes received / post count) of 0.294.


2nd place goes to  who is a long term community member who authored 7 solutions, accepted 1, and had a 'Likes to Post Count' ratio (i.e. how many likes received / post count)  of 0.203.


This month the 3rd place was slightly different and reserved for someone new to IG Community. This doesn't necessarily mean someone who joined in the month of January, but someone who may have posted for the first time, or significantly increased their post count and involvement over this period. In this instance  with his 'Leverage ETF risk parity portfolio' post, inclusion in the ESMA discussion, and comments and questions on some other posts in the forum, is the winner. 


Thank you very much to everyone who participated, and I'm sure you'll all join me in congratulating the above winners.

If  and  can let me know which trading books they'd like (either via private message or adding a comment to this thread) I'll get this sorted. I'll send amazon vouchers to the emails associated with your live accounts so please make sure these details are up to date. Thanks :)

    • I think his partnership with Bitget is actually a success considering considering he also won 2 ballon d'or  and Bitget has continuously grown I the process. I feel more 20 million registered users in 5 years since inception is unprecedented. 
    • That's a wise call and it's important to also confirm that the exchange of your chosen should be in compliance and perhaps licensed in your country. 
    • Investing in crypto could be challenging especially the Fear of Missing out Lambo. This mostly affect traders trading strategy and ideology. Predicting the right time to buy is always cumbersome and that is why many analyst advise DCA because it curtails FOMO and gives you a long-term crypto trading mentality. In crypto Dollar Cost Averaging involves investing the same amount of money in a target token at regular intervals over a certain period of time, regardless of price. This will help to control volatility on your portfolios and minimize FOMO For example when you decide to invest $100 on a token and invest $10 daily or weekly or monthly till you fulfilled you $100 target investment on the token irrespective of the price of the token. This strategy helps a crypto trader to build his portfolio over the long term thereby he/she is not bothered by short-term volatility in the broader markets. This strategy mostly favours low-budget traders in building a strong portfolio but the problem most normally encounter is exchange minimum trading amount. One analyst advised on how to mitigate this was to accumulate on exchange that has lower trading fees and later send to where you desire to hold. He also noted that some of this exchanges are good in listing good projects for you to be among the early birds. Do you think DCA is the best method to accumulate token and which exchange offers the lowest tradeable balance and trading fees?
