Online Trading Academy

Ajit Mahuli was trained as an IT professional and traveled the world doing product consulting. His methodical approach prepared him well for trading and investing, yet when he started trading he was a complete novice. After his broker caused large losses he decided he had to learn how to self-direct his portfolio and that was when he discovered Online Trading Academy.

As an Online Trading Academy Instructor, Ajit has faced many of the same problems and gone through the same training as his students. He has completed Pro Trader and Options Trader courses and was a student in the Stock and Options XLTs before becoming a teacher.

Ajit prefers trading high probability setups using equity indices, stocks futures and options. He plans trades in advance and follows his plan and rules. He emphasizes that trading is actually simple if you follow the rules and are disciplined. His focus is on managing risk and “not blowing away your trading capital.”

“I have been tracking/trading for over 10 years, never made real good money. However, the education that I got from this class helped me realized that I could have achieved more. This also set a stage for me to begin my life as a professional trader. I liked Ajit Mahuli's way of teaching the training sessions starting from the basics, with examples, answering all the questions patiently and guiding through the trading exercises during live market session.”

“EXCELLENT!! Great knowledge and teaching skills, but the best part is the attitude and temperament... thoroughly enjoyed and was looking forward to every day of the course in spite of being fagged out towards the end of the day! Every query has been answered to my satisfaction and sometimes much before the actual question ran through my mind. My Instructor has used the simplest language possible to even make a lay person understand the complex topics on Trading. Excellent Patience and Temperament!!”
