My journey started back, when I was a 10-years old kid. Every night on DD-National (yes – it still exists !) we used to watch new, and somehow I just got hooked to the news anchor saying nifty went up by 10-points or down by 12-points today. Off-course I had no clue about what is was, but nifty going up felt nice.
Years later in 2008, fresh graduate from IIT, I stepped in stock market and bought stocks which people in my office told me too. With beginners luck when the market hit upper circuit in May 2009 – I made my first big profit. Highly confident – I started thinking BIG, and bought lot of penny stock later-on, based on random advice from subscription services & viola – I lost much more than I had earned ! In 2010 I decided to get out of stock market, but revenge was still on my mind (how dare I lost to market !)
Few years later in 2013, I read articles on how people made big money trading options, and it dawned to me that why the hell did I trade equities when I clearly options was the better choice. After some you-tubing, I was good to go! I started to trade exclusively in naked call & puts listening to news channel daily on what their view on the market was. Mostly I used to buy far OTM options (as they were cheap) & would often average it down (sometimes twice in a day) whenever I was at a loss. But I was going not making enough money! So I decided to increase my ROI, and bought a huge quantity of OTM call basis views from experts in news channels. As fated – I ended up in a even bigger loss. Now my revenge was finished and I decided never to return to market again, but I still kept watching on how many points Nifty was going up and down.
Fast forward to 2015, I decided to formally educate myself in technical analysis and started trading small (200/- loss per trade) with discipline just to learn. After few months of disciplined trading controlling the greed to make quick money, and learning from my every trade that I had journaled – I achieved consistency in trading and started making money. Overtime, I refined to the rules I had learnt and added few more of my own rules to manage my risk appetite even better.
Now, I trade in futures, but my favorite is options. I have become extremely disciplined and consistent in following my rules, keep doing things that work (it’s boring now !) and instead of venturing-out to learn 100’s of strategies but decided to master 10-12 options strategies and trade them only to make consistent profits. Occasionally, I will do take a slightly riskier trades, but with strict stop-loss in place.
If your trading journey also seems similar to mine, even in bits and pieces, then you MUST start working on yourself now, before it’s too late. I cannot teach you self discipline and control, but we can definitely equip you with process to setup and manage your own trades a lot better.

I have always been fascinated by how the financial markets work, ever since I had my first lesson on basic economics. The terms demand-supply, pricing, GDP, Inflation etc gripped me with a lot of interest on why and what are these things improtant in the first place. Very early after introducing myself to stock market in 2007, I started following few of the big companies stock prices movement with their results.
After doing MBA in Finance (an obvious choice for me by then!), I got myself certified in Investment banking, I started to do a lot of fundamental and technical analysis of stocks myself. With knowledge on my side, and learning even more from some formal education on market analysis – I started building my own process and tools for stock market analysis, it’s cyclicity, which companies do well in what situation and why etc etc,
Once I started to gain profits on my own investment, i started to share this knowledge in my trusted friends circle and explain them my process for a particular stock selection and why it’s a good value investment. Slowly and steadily, I was able to grow my circle of influence and just shared this information freely to whoever needed it. It used to give me immense satisfaction, when someone thanked me if they made money from my research information.
Nevertheless, I really-really feel sad when I see retail investors loosing their hard-earned money following trap to fake website or people offering big returns in short amount of time or blindly following anyone who appears at TV or any other media channel – just to lose money ! I hope SEBI keep doing the good work on investor education to avoid people from getting trapped in this web of fake advices.
Most of my time goes now in fundamental analysis of companies and combining them with sound technical analysis and invest them in various buckets of short/mid/long term horizon, or in cyclical stocks, or identifying the next multi-bagger. I share this principles and philosophy across as well to anyone who wants to genuinely learn the art of evaluating companies. I often take trades based purely on technical analysis too, if it meets my criteria to trade and manage my risk well.
I strongly believe that if you are serious about growing your wealth from stock market, then you must explore and take advantage of different styles of Investing approach to make your hard-earned money work hard for you too, while managing your overall risk well.
So if you are someone with patience and discipline, then I can definetly help you in achieving your financial goals.
