My Experience on the app

After downloading the app, it took me about 5 minutes to understand the dynamics of the app. One of the things I love most about the app is the risk management feature, which includes the stop-loss and deal cancellation features. If you understand how to use these two features and take profit as well, you will minimize your losses and maximize your profit. I also love the news tab features, which focus on x-ray market trends and new products.

Few things to note when using the App

1. Loses are inevitable:

Just like trading on DMT5, DTrader or the website, you will encounter some loses some times, but your ability to minimize those loses and maximize your profit is what makes the different, that is where the risk management features comes in.

2. Analyze and be confident about your trade calls:

Do a proper analysis before placing your trade. Trading is not gambling; remember, if you lose money, it is not the fault of the app but of your trading decision.

3. Learn to control your emotion:

In almost all my post and videos, I have echoed the need to have a good trading psychology. If you allow your emotion to control you while trading, you will always be in the losing end.

4. Access, Analyze, Trade and Control your trade:

This is how Deriv expert puts it, access all tradable assets, do your analysis, place your trade and control it with the risk management features.

5. Making money is a product of consistency:

Don’t try to make all the money in this World in a day. Take it slowly. I am successful today, because of consistency.


Deriv offers complex derivatives, such as options and contracts for difference (“CFDs”). These products may not be suitable for all clients, and trading them puts you at risk. Please make sure that you understand the following risks before trading Deriv products: a) you may lose some or all of the money you invest in the trade, b) if your trade involves currency conversion, exchange rates will affect your profit and loss. You should never trade with borrowed money or with money that you cannot afford to lose.
