I enjoy trading. Even at university I wanted to make money on market movements. In fact, I traded my account for a year, so I knew some trading strategies, systems of risk management and money management. I also knew that the key to success is in the right psychology. That attitude has served me well at OSTC. You’ve got to be driven and disciplined, and able to combine an established trading approach with flexibility and intuition.

Before I started my career in trading, my life was all about sport. I was a professional football player but even then I invested my savings on the stock exchange. I had a basic knowledge on how the stock market works; but only when I joined OSTC was I taught what trading is really all about and how to trade professionally. The success didn’t come quickly and easily however. There were uncomfortable moments on the way – I recall especially one when liquidity on my best product dried up and I took my first big (at that time for me) loss. I managed to recover and that made me stronger.
Once I got my first bonus, all my hard work and struggles turned out to be really worthwhile. Nothing comes easy and it definitely applies to success in trading, while many people wrongly think there is easy money to be made on markets. In my opinion you have to really work hard, be disciplined, persistent and passionate about what you are doing to be a good trader. I transferred those characteristics from my career in football to trading.

I started my career with OSTC India in May 2013, joining the Mumbai office after graduating from IIT, Kharagpur with an Engineering Degree. I was keen to remain in Mumbai after completing my education as Mumbai offers great opportunities to grow and learn in the financial industry plus providing a great life after work. Upon completion of my course, I applied for the Graduate Trader Programme and after rigorous rounds of interviews got selected as one of the recruits for the new batch to start training in May 2013. Since starting, I have had an ever expanding product mix and range of strategies which lead to my performance improving day by day. Having had an entrepreneurial mindset from the start, I wish to partner with OSTC on joint venture initiatives in the years to come.
