CMTrading proudly presents its ‘Best In Africa’ campaign, featuring the accomplished fighter Dricus ‘Stillknocks’ du Plessis as the brand ambassador,” stated a spokesperson for the company. “Since their partnership commenced in 2019, both parties have enjoyed mutual benefits.”
Dricus du Plessis has not only honed his impressive online trading skills with CMTrading but also firmly believes that the right partner is instrumental in achieving success in trading. The campaign encompasses a wide range of media channels, including PR, print, outdoor and mall advertising, as well as social media platforms, where followers have the chance to win exclusive shirts autographed by ‘Stillknocks’ himself.
Africa’s Premier Trading Platform
Renowned as Africa’s premier trading platform, CMTrading has once again teamed up with South Africa’s finest in the octagon. The synergy between these exceptional entities is evident in their successful collaboration as business partners.
Dricus du Plessis undeniably stands as one of South Africa’s greatest fighters, leaving a mark in the industry as a two-weight class EFC champion and an undefeated UFC competitor. Scheduled to face former UFC Middleweight champion Robert Whittaker in a title eliminator fight on July 8th at UFC 290 in Las Vegas, Nevada, du Plessis leaves no stone unturned in his preparation. However, what may surprise many is his pursuit of knowledge and skill in stock trading during his spare time.
Trading skill set
Du Plessis attributes his additional skill set to his longstanding partnership with CMTrading, which has provided him with invaluable knowledge and expertise. This collaboration has allowed him to explore a field he may not have ventured into otherwise, broadening his horizons.
Known for his strategic approach inside the ring, Dricus understands the importance of having options and opportunities. With mastery over stand-up fighting and ground techniques, he possesses the artistry and balance necessary for the cage.
Drawing parallels between fighting and trading, he explains, “There are many similarities between what I do to prepare as an athlete and online trading. Both require thorough investigation and preparation, and success is achieved through diligent research and analysis. Furthermore, both endeavors are exhilarating, challenging, and undeniably rewarding.”
Dricus’ journey to becoming a top-tier fighter began at a young age, starting with Judo at the age of five and progressing to kickboxing at 14. By 2013, he turned professional with EFC Africa, and in 2017, he achieved the remarkable feat of becoming a two-division champion in the Welterweight and Middleweight categories. In 2020, he made his highly anticipated UFC debut and has remained undefeated.
The UFC has played a pivotal role in du Plessis’ career, earning him the nickname “Stillknocks” due to his knack for choke holds and knockouts. His pursuit of excellence involves a dedicated team of coaches who work with him daily, covering areas such as grappling, boxing, strength training, nutrition, and mental fortitude.
Dricus emphasizes the similarities between fighting and trading, stating that anyone who adopts a strategic approach can succeed in the trading “octagon.”
“As I mentioned, investigation and preparation are crucial in fighting and trading. A successful fighter carefully analyzes their opponent’s strengths, weaknesses, and fighting style to develop a winning strategy.
Similarly, a prosperous trader thoroughly researches and analyzes financial instruments, market trends, and economic indicators to make informed trading decisions.
“Both disciplines require studying and understanding the factors influencing outcomes and taking appropriate actions based on that knowledge.”
Preparation is key
He further highlights the importance of diligent preparation and continuous learning in both fighting and trading. Fighters spend countless hours refining their skills, training with coaches, and studying various techniques. Similarly, traders must continuously educate themselves about market dynamics.
The CMTrading platform offers precisely these insights.
