After earning his master’s degree in the U.S., Viral Shah came to Mumbai to pursue his dream career as an equity analyst in stock markets. He worked with the research teams of several brokerage houses, rising through the ranks to Senior Equity Analyst. As an Online Trading Academy Instructor, he combines experience with fundamental analysis and our Core Strategy to deliver powerful insights in equity investing.

He tells his students to think of the successful stock market investor as a bottle of water rather than a soda. The soft drink fizzes out when shaken while the water bottle remains calm. Likewise, an investor should be guided by patience, passion and practice, which can increase the possibility of profits.

Viral also believes that knowledge becomes powerful only when it is implemented efficiently and effectively. His why is to put his students on the fast track to financial freedom by developing knowledge of best practices and the self-discipline to apply this knowledge consistently.
