About this Face2Face:

In this edition of the Face2Face series, we have with us Mr. Vivek Bajaj, co-founder, StockEdge, Elearnmarkets, in conversation with Mr. Pran Katariya, an IITian, a former entrepreneur and now a full time stock market participant.


Mr. Pran Katariya brings with him an immense amount of knowledge and experience in the stock trading business. He has learnt and traded with many experts from both India and the USA, so you surely don't want to miss out on this special Face2Face video.


The video will start with a brief introduction of Mr. Pran Katariya and how he started his journey from being an entrepreneur to a full-time stock trader. He will talk about his experience in the US and how it is different from India. He will also spill the beans on how intraday trading is fantasized as a way to make huge gains in a short-term period. He will say how that is far from the reality and that if large corporations like Reliance and HUL only make 15-20% returns, how can a small trader make 100% gains every year? The discussion will then spew towards other topics, the first being risk management


Since Pran Katariya is an Options trader and avoids creating positions in Futures he will talk candidly about his strategy of preventing huge losses. He will also talk about how he trades in a few stocks where if he is at a loss, he would take a delivery of those shares and hold it for longer lengths.


This face2face video covers aspects such as Options trading, risk management and index trading. The speaker will also give his views on how one can take up trading as a primary source of income. He will talk about the minimum capital required to have a sustainable source of income through trading. So for those who are looking to quit their jobs and take up trading as a full-time occupation, his words will be of great help.
