I got fascinated by the stock markets at a very early age, right when I was in high school at the time when Harshad Mehta got the biggest bull run ever going in India. It was no wonder that an ordinary school kid also knew about something called the stock markets.
It was only a decade later that I started playing the markets. I believe that trading, just like acting, is a skill that can be learned by anyone, but not everyone can be a successful actor. If you do the right things, you'll survive in the industry even if you don't become a superstar. If you do the wrong things, the industry forgets you very soon.
