Alok is an Engineer from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi and a MBA finance from the University of Maryland. He returned to India to start his journey in the markets by setting up one of the first National Stock Exchange memberships in New Delhi in 1996.
In the next two decades, Alok developed a keen sense for systematic rule based investing systems and technical trading. He is a keen observer of the psychology and behavioral aspects of the market and wanted to quantify and incorporate them in his investing. Alok had been running several of his products on his own funds since many years and over time he was convinced that others could make use of the same products as well and thus launched his advisory weekendinvesting.com.
Weekendinvesting.com is a Do-it-Yourself (DIY) advisory where Alok provides simple momentum based investing models. The unique part about his strategies is the low time-spent: returns ratio where the user spends up to 15 minutes a week to attend to their portfolios and the returns have so far have been beating the benchmarks by a wide margin.
He also runs a hyperactive twitter feed at @Weekendinvestng to share his trading thoughts with a large twitter group.
