I am the mind behind SmartLazyTrader
I received my degree in Mechanical Engineering from Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Technology in 2007.Currently, I have a day job in petrochemical sector and
I started trading out of my passions for learning and earning . I have been dreaming of becoming rich and I used to read a lot of investing and finance articles. In 2006, I got to know more about Share market( Nifty, Sensex, Mutual Funds, ETF and endless possibilities. But it took me about years from then to start my first trade. I still regret of procrastinating my first trade.
I started with the Hedge equities private Limited platform & later I moved to ZERODHA ( The discount brokerage).
I started with intraday then explored to short term, swing trading, long term investment , options buying ( High risk), Selling options ( low-risk consistent returns), futures etc.
When I started trading, I used to do research about stocks and all. There is a lot of investment information available on the internet. So much information ( contradictory information) that common man will get overwhelmed and confused where to start and how to start?. Because of this I have made mistakes and blown up my account few times.
I have tried a lot of experiments with strategies available, tweaked a lot. Back test and also tried on live-market which was found successful.
My style of trading/ investing are low-risk swing trading , option selling, Nifty Futures and building long-term portfolio of small caps for wealth building. I have learned a lot from my experience and I don’t want you to burn your fingers and then learn the hard way .
When I started sharing those strategies/ideas that worked for me.
That’s how SmartLazyTrader was born.
