Vinodh was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to answer a few questions exclusively for my blog and I am pleased to present the findings below. Vinodh – firstly, thanks for taking the time to do this for the readers of RickyAhuja.com.
RA: Great! Let’s get right into the questions. Could you start off by telling us a little bit about yourself and BullnBearTrades.com?
Vinodh: I started of my career in the software industry working in different areas from product development to product management and marketing having launched several successful enterprise products. Latest position being at IBM as Program Director for their enterprise integration products. I started getting into stock trading about 10 years ago and got quite interested into it after learning the immense potential it had to offer. One of the challenges to be being successful in stock trading is dealing with the vast amount of information which makes it very complex and dealing with your human emotions which prevent us from making sound judgment. I wanted to take a different approach to solve this problem and utilized my unique combination of software and stock trading skills to develop a unique algorithm that will simplify stock trading and as well give us superior results which worked very well for me. Later I packaged it in a way that can be easily used by end users with little or no experience and hence BullnBearTrades was born so that others can use and reap the benefits as well.
RA: What made you decide to pursue a career in trading? What are some of your recognizable achievements?
Vinodh: The immense earning potential along with the ability to help others earn extra income by spending 15-30 mins in the evenings which can change their lives was one of the main motivating factors for me to pursue this career. Some of the achievements are being able is developing the core algorithm that is very effective in any market condition and later fine tuning and molding it into a complete system that can be easily used by end users. It is very gratifying to see users use this system and reap the benefits.
RA: How does your previous experience as a trader influence the way you trade and invest?
Vinodh: When your money is on the line, we very rarely make good judgment including myself, hence I purely use my software and its trade signals to enter, exit and manage my positions. Since software has no emotions, following it strictly gives consistent results and you know you are doing the right thing when you follow it consistently.
RA: You have a product you have launched exclusively through our network at Affiliate Venture Group, what can potential investors expect to learn or gain from it?
Vinodh: Potential investors can get consistent returns in any market conditions which has been about 20-25% monthly ROI based on past results. The reason for this high ROI is because we use options to significantly reduce the investment. For example instead of buying 100 shares of RIMM at $6500 (100X65) we buy equivalent options for about $400 which gives us a great ROI and significantly reduces our downside risk. One of our key differentiators is to provide live trading experience where we place trades and provide updates the previous night and investors can get a real hands on experience which no one else provides in the industry. We also publish the complete results of all our trades online which is unmatched in the industry as well.
RA: What’s the advantage of your trading software rather than just buying shares of stock in the open market?
Vinodh: In stock trading timing and points of entry is very critical and my software gives you signals on when to enter for long and short positions and once into a trade it gives daily updated trade signals which acts like a GPS guiding your trades towards profitability. If the trade goes against you, you can adjust your positions based on the trade signals to eventually come out of the trade on that stock profitable. Professional traders in major wall st firms have invested and have some systems like these which is kept as closely guarded secret and now retail investors can get the benefit as well.
RA: What’s been your biggest challenge in the launch of this product?
Vinodh: One of the biggest challenge is to make people commit to 15-30 mins of their time every working day to be effective in this system. Once people use this system they feel it is very simple and tend to skip a day or two which hurts them. Once they build it into their daily routine then they do fine. Also when people first hear that they can make 15-25% monthly ROI, they think it is to good to be true but later come back and ask why this was not available to them earlier.
RA: For a 12-month time period, name two stocks to buy and two stocks to short, and why.
Vinodh: 12 months is very long time period to trade using this software. Our typical trade duration is about 5-7 days and we do bullish and bearish trades every day to be properly hedged in either direction as we cannot predict market movement. Having said that I like the following stocks for bullish and bearish positions which have room to move about another 10% which in options can be about 50% returns in a few days. We do 2 trades like these every day. AKAM and GG for Bullish trades. These two stock look quite bearish and have room to drop about 10% which in options terms can be about 50% returns in a few days. We do 2 trades like these every day COF and UPL
RA: Now that we’ve got the tough questions out of the way, here are a few personal questions. What was your first, and what was your worst job?
Vinodh: My first job was at Digital Equipment Corporation, a very exciting one, getting to work on their search engine technology Alta Vista during the very early days. I could not name one job as my worst job, but the worst part of any job is dealing with the political issues that come in the way and when you have resolved the political issues you have lost the optimal time to launch your product or project. It is hard but unavoidable and have to deal with that.
RA: What’s your favorite thing to do outside of trading?
Vinodh: Sports playing basketball, tennis and more importantly spending time with my two little kids a boy and a girl.
RA: Where do you see the market heading this year?
Vinodh: We had a great run from Aug of last year after the Fed announced QE2 last year and I feel the market is kind of losing steam. For the rest of the year the markets are going to driven by geo-political events and Fed’s plan post QE2 which is from June. I think we may go up another 5-10% from our current point. In my situation however I do not really care and irrespective of market conditions we do a bullish trade and a bearish trade every day and try to turn them to profitability to get our 20-25% monthly ROI.
RA: If you could offer one piece of advice to our readers as it comes to understanding and playing the market, what would it be?
Vinodh: Have a clear game plan on what you are going to do if a trade goes against you. This is very critical, as trades will go against you all the time and if you panic or get emotional you cannot succeed in this profession. In our case the trade signal tells us what to do and we follow it.
RA: What are your differentiators in the market place?
Vinodh: We place trades live in our account using the software and trade signals and share that with our subscribers giving them the valuable practical experience and confidence needed to succeed. These trades and trade signals are provided the previous night ahead of time to enable them to learn from the live experience and follow the trades if they wish as well to make some money. In addition to that we post the results of all our trades to show the efficiency of this system which is unmatched in the industry. Most of them publish only the winners and hide the losers. We publish the complete results.
