My name is Jai Bala and in this blog you will find my view on financial markets and trading from a chartist's perspective. Im a trader & market technician (MSTA, CFTe) and a very large part of my market knowledge was gained through trading for a living . I have been investing in the markets since 1994, took up trading as a full time pursuit in 2002 and went on to manage portfolios of high-net individuals. I have been a specialist technical analysis consultant to a multi-billion dollar private fund. Between Jul 2008- Jan 2010, I lead the technical strategy for the instituitional broking arm of Reliance Capital, advising hedge funds and other instituitional clients. My past television appearances include Bloomberg, CNBC, NDTV Profit and ET Now.
Cyclical Bull Market -Apr 2009
I'll be covering the Indian markets mainly but will also touch upon other markets including the world indices, commodities, currencies and bonds. Within the Indian markets, my posts will focus on the Nifty index and the equities segment of the market.
Through this blog I hope to keep in touch with my friends in the trading community. At the same time, writing and collecting my thoughts helps me stay disciplined and this blog is aimed towards that end.
