It helps to find best stock from the entire list of stocks and helps to define proper Risk Vs Reward for each trade.
TSO: What do you do to overcome the losses, if any while trading?
Mr. Kamal: Losses are actually part of the business and to mitigate the risk we need to manage it, we manage it with a proper system driven stop loss and also trades should be based on proper Risk Reward Ratio. Risk has to be taken with respect to your trading Capital and not on trade to trade basis.
Analysis needs to be checked when we hit the Stop loss for a trade as any error in analysis needs to be corrected, always believe in Fail Forward system, though sometimes market will go against your analysis as analysis is also probable and not certain.
TSO: What do you do when not trading and what else do you love to do?

Mr. Kamal: For any business to be successful always have a rational approach and not emotional. Trades are to be seen as business opportunities and always book loss on time, as capital in hand will help you grasp as many opportunities as possible. Stay in Market to make money and always learn. Always think of training as an investment in a business.
