my story

a235e4ef-9ff8-4d72-98ab-5f824eef64cd

My name is Alok Jain. I have been in the Indian stock markets for more than two 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 advisory services.

A momentum investing product, Mi50 was the first product I started to manage my own funds in a systematic manner. I put out the entire portfolio, and all weekly trade updates in the public domain from day one for a whole year and was immensely encouraged by the positive feedback I received from a large number of social media followers and supporters.  Mi50 completed one year on Mar 31 2017 and it clocked returns  above 54% for the first year. Several other products have followed Mi50 by now all running on the basic genetics of momentum returns, capital preservation and holistic portfolio approach.

Buoyed by the initial success and to satisfy a consistent demand for financial advisory for others, I acquired a SEBI RIA ( Registered Investment Advisor) license and rolled out the same strategies that I was running my own money on for others via WeekendInvesting.com.

“Simplicity” is what drives most of my processes. All that I do is conceptualized and operationalized around that basic concept. Whether it is the account opening process, or operational ease or ease of getting 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 outcome returns is greatly tilted in our favor.  The simple processes also help in cutting a lot of noise from your investing activity.

If you may have any questions or queries, the same may kindly be sent to  alok@WeekendInvesting.com or you can tweet @WeekendInvestng. I like to keep my Inbox clean and hence you should get a response before you expect it !  My linked-in profile is here, just in case.

Some media reports on Weekendinvesting.com can be seen here. You may also go through my presentation at Investors Carnival Goa 2018

Disclaimer : I have full skin in the game and I always let my own money play out the system before offering it to others.  I am invested fully in all the products that are offered. I also do a lot of discretionary investing/trading apart from this and hence I may have in line or contra-positions to the recommendations here at times.

  1. Sir I m not a trader ,but after my graduation I have been a keen investor and would love to spend my entire life in the market.
    I have always read that trading is not profitable.
    Logically I feel that in trading people try to catch someone’s else money through trade. This is not the case in investing.

    If you could logically explain me incorrect. Please do it.
    At last all models can’t work ,some models have to fail for others to pass.

      1. Yesterday I came to know about your blog through money control.

        short term trades will always have stop losses.Everyday will the subscribers have to put stop loss order for every stock present in the portfolio?

        when are you launching Mi20?

        If your recommendations jump 2% or 3% from the given price, do you still recommend to purchase at higher prices? it happens when many people chase moderately liquid stocks the price jump is inevitable.

  7. Hello sir,

    Do you conduct any classes or seminars to teach mantra for trading succesfully in markets.? I have some knowledge of technical analysis of stock, but watching each and every stock daily and technically analysing those stock is bit difficult.

    I dont want to Be dependend on someone else buy or sell calls, rather I want to start making my own calls to buy or sell or find entry or exit level in stock.

    Can you can help with the insider knowledge?
