My name is Alok Jain. I have been in the Indian stock markets for more than two and a half decades now. I am passionate about building mechanical systems/models to invest in the markets that can generate superior returns. My dream is to try help others achieve Financial Independence early so that life can be lived to the full… like it has for me.
I am a graduate from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (1991) and hold a Masters in Finance and an M.B.A. from University of Maryland USA (1995).
My journey in the markets started with my setting up one of the first National Stock Exchange memberships in New Delhi in 1996. For two decades, I serviced institutional, Corporate, H.N.I. and retail clients and along the way developed a keen sense for systematic rule based investing systems and technical trading. On completing twenty years of the business in 2016, I decided move on to a more fulfilling stage of my life and started this public blog and reasearch services.
Buoyed by the initial success and to satisfy a consistent demand for reaserch products for others, I acquired a SEBI RIA license and rolled out the model portfolios via WeekendInvesting.com and STAIRS2profits.com
“Simplicity” is what drives most of my processes. All that I do is conceptualized and operationalized around that basic concept. The idea is whether it is the account opening steps, or operational ease of running the strategy or the ease of getting quick support, everything should flow with simple ease. All my strategies and procedures are built around this tenet. My belief is that the trade off between time spent in investing with such strategies ( few mins a week) vs. the expected returns is greatly tilted in our favor. The simple processes also help in cutting a lot of noise from our investing activity.
I also run a long short positional strategy “STAIRS” on Nifty and Bank Nifty as a hedge against the long only Momentum investing system. Details are at STAIRS2profits.com
