My name is Shishir and welcome to my blog.
I am a 37 year old practicing Radiologist by profession and an active trader by passion.
This blog is my effort to engage with people who want to learn how to trade more effectively. I would like to share what I have learnt over the last 20 years by reading countless books and watching and going through numerous chart setups doing all types of technical analysis.
Trading stocks/futures/commodities/cryptocurrencies is a subject which is extremely vast and which can’t be mastered ever. You always get to learn something new with each passing day and I have tried to imbibe as much as possible during my leisure time.
My journey with the stock market began more out of curiosity…
I was 17 years old at that time and had just started my first year of M.B.B.S at a highly reputable medical college in Mumbai, India. My grandfather had a habit of watching the daily news bulletin just after dinner time and one of the segments in the bulletin was the economic news. They used to talk all about the Bombay Stock Exchange Sensex rising and falling. It was all Greek and Latin to me at that time. However one thing which I did notice was that the people making money doing this were always glued to the market news and were taking decisions based off that…Or atleast so I thought.
Can’t be too difficult…Can It!!.
But one of the earliest hurdles which I ran into was whom to ask about what this whole share market game was all about. There was no mentor at home. No one in our house was into this space. We are from an educated middle class family but none of us had ever dabbled into the share market and had generally kept away from this space. Fear of unknown I guess!!
However as years kept passing by I kept growing more and more inquisitive about how this entire thing worked. With time my curiosity turned into a genuine interest which I have cultivated and nurtured over all these last 20 years. Fortunately folks at home have always been supportive of my involvement in the financial markets.
I found excellent guidance in simple well written books which introduced me to the world of trading. My interest most definitely leaned more towards the technical analysis component as against the fundamentals. The fundamental analysis of a market segment is still Greek to me and I don’t think its my cup of tea. Books were later complimented well with actual practice trading on the charting platforms, many of which are available online for FREE thanks to the most revolutionary invention of our times…The Internet.
Anyways so after many ups and downs including some major losses followed by some even bigger victories I have decided to start blogging about what I have learnt in my journey so far. I have traded on all sort of instruments starting from Equities to Futures to Commodities and also the latest sensation in the markets, cryptocurrencies. Hopefully some of you who have similar interests will join me and follow along with me. And maybe learn something from my experiences and mistakes.
I will be talking more on about technical analysis and how to use it to trade any market and make small consistent gains out of it in the next few posts. I will be sharing some great resources which I have found useful and which have given me some consistent profits. Am looking forward to hearing back from the readers. Leave your comments below and tell me how long you have been trading and what in particular would you like me to talk about.
