Swapnil Joshi has been trading the Indian Markets since 2007. He previously worked at Sharekhan Ltd in trading and risk management, then joined Online Trading Academy and became a full time trader in 2012. Within two years, with hard work and dedication, his passion for training led him to become an OTA Instructor.

He likes to point out that OTA instructors are traders themselves, which makes the course content practical and engaging. A student can learn far more from experience than from reading academic books on markets. In Swapnil’s class students will benefit from his extensive history trading equities, futures and commodities.

Swapnil feels the OTA supply and demand strategy is a revolutionary approach to trading. To become a successful trader, one has to abide by this simple strategy and follow a rules-based approach. That is his main focus when delivering a class to students.
