What is Traders’ Carnival? #TC2013?
Traders’ Carnival started out (though not in the same form) as a means of keeping in touch with trading buddies in a social environment. It started out with 4 or 5 friends meeting over a few drinks one lazy Saturday afternoon in Bangalore 4 years ago.
Not all discussions under the influence are forgotten….. as these lazy chats discussing their present trading experiences had gradually grown over the years into a group where over a hundred traders met at Bangalore in October 2012. Costs for the meet were shared, and it slowly progressed into a residential program to escape the caveat of a 6 pm closure. #TC2012 saw this group of traders huddled over discussions till around 2 am, and again, ready for a 7am start.
The canvas of this meeting expanded to traders from outside Bangalore, and in 2012, we had traders coming in from all over India. Do look at the demographics of participants on the website, Traders' Carnival.
For those who did not attend the last Traders’ Carnival 2012 (#TC2012) in October 2012 at Bangalore, here is a brief background of the event.
#TC2012 was held at the ECC – Ecumenical Christian Centre at Whitefield, Bangalore, set in a sprawling 28 acres of greenery,
The first chapter of the event in its present avatar –Traders’ Carnival 2012 – (#TC2012 hashtag on twitter) kicked off on October 26th, 2012 at Bangalore, a two day residential event. Over a hundred traders participated in this event comprising of holistic and detailed Strategy sessions, Trade Psychology sessions, and indulged in brainstorming, late into the night. This turned out into a sit-down hangout for traders.
We had ten experts sharing their strategies at the event. They trade these strategies themselves, and over half of them continue to trade for a living.
#TC2012 also had a session on regulatory content – RBI, SEBI, by Deepak Shenoy, a co-founder at MarketVision, which is about financial education and spreading awareness on markets and financial products to Indian consumers and businesses.
The icing on the cake : A session on Trader Psychology by a veteran trader of over 28 years in the markets. This wily fox is an acknowledged expert on ‘hit and run’ strategies which, as past years have showed, have an excellent track record.
#TC2013 is an annual event for the Retail Trader in India. Conceptualised, managed and run by a community of traders with no fancy claims and magic wand….neither do we have a parrot which picks stocks in the morning…
This is an attempt is to let the retail trader know - There is a method to the madness.
Trade the Moves, not the Target
