Trader,

I am an options trader based in Melbourne, Australia. The trading approach I create is very much simplistic but mathematically and technically inspired. My fund’s consistently up trending equity curve is driven by the passion I put in my work. Trading has taken away a lot of things from me, things such as emotional volatility, unfocused attitude, and de trop bias, in return it has given me resilience, focus, and happiness.
At the age of 21, I was trading almost every derivate based asset class in the Indian markets. After the fall of 2008, I thought about quitting approximately 5000 times (and that’s a lowball estimate). But despite the high losses, low confidence, mental fatigue and bearish news flow overdose I kept on going. I’m that person. Once I say I’ll do something, it will happen.
Presently, I hold the Chartered Market Technician (CMT) and the Certified Financial Technician (CFTe) charters. To add to that, I hold two master’s degrees (Master of Business Administration (MBA– Finance) and Master of Financial Analysis (MFA – Risk)) from La Trobe University in Melbourne. I have been a contributor for Traders planet, have worked as a volunteer for Market Technicians Association (MTA), and am serving as a board member for Association of Technical Market Analysts (ATMA). I am the co-founder of a Melbourne based hedge fund by the name of ‘Euler Capital’, and co-founder of a Noida based Quant fund by the name of ‘The Multiplier’.
