Raiyan Banaji began trading when he returned to India after 5 years of work and school in the U.S. He liked the competitiveness of trading, which allowed him to leverage skills he had developed as a champion athlete. He uses a holistic approach as an Online Trading Academy Instructor, employing psychology to help his students apply the Core Strategy to their investments.
Raiyan believes the trader who remains objective, mindful of errors and positively focused will come out a winner. Precise execution is key, and the student who trades the system closest to the way it was designed will be more likely to succeed.
Raiyan stresses the importance of aspiring to success not only in trading, but in all areas of life. A healthy physical and mental well-being can help traders avoid distractions so they can follow through on their trading plan more effectively.
