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.”

“The experiences shared by AJIT MAHULI will go a long way in helping us avoid the pitfalls of trading. His knowledge about the subject is tremendous. He is a walking / talking encyclopedia.

“Ajit was very professional in the class. He had thorough knowledge of the subject and did his best to explain the topics and content to the students. I am thoroughly impressed with his knowledge and experience and his passion to share it with fellow traders. I have been associated with OTA since two years. As days pass with the learning that I have from the classes, from XLT and from interactions with the mentors, I feel I am getting better and better at my trades. The depth of knowledge demonstrated by all the mentors and training faculty is amazing. Though each one of them have a different style and strength, overall, I feel that OTA has the best of the faculty and OTA takes utmost care to ensure that all the students succeed in their mission to become a successful trader. I am happy to have joined OTA and the investments I have made in my education with OTA.”
