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.

“I like the way which Swapnil sir used to teach students. He always used real time chats and traded in front of us, and told us to take trade but do your own analysis before taking trade, and after that he taught us why we made profit or why we got loss. His hand-holding behaviour is very good, he helped me to do trade in step by step manner, how to do? what to do? and most important, what not to do while doing trade. He also helped me to improve my trading behaviour, he quickly identify my trading behaviour and point me out what not to do while trade. Thanks Swapnil sir.”
