083: Success & Growth Factors In Your Trading Career – Kunal Desai
Kunal Desai: Success & Growth Factors In Your Trading Career
In episode 83 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Kunal Desai, a day trader by day and industry leading instructor by night. He is the Founder and Lead Instructor at Bulls on Wall Street and has helped thousands of traders reach their trading goals through his unique live trading courses since 2010.
I enjoyed seeing how passionate Kunal was about trading and helping people. He inspired me to work even harder when he said: “if you want to teach, you must be willing to work harder than your students”.
More About Kunal
Kunal began trading stocks during the Dotcom Boom, experiencing several ups and downs while growing his account and his knowledge of how the market works. It didn’t take very long for him to realize he had a passion for trading, and that he was particularly drawn to the excitement and profit potential of day and swing trading. While he grew his skill set through experience and self-education, it was mentorship under Paul Singh that really helped Kunal recognize his strengths and weaknesses, and develop a trading system that fit his personality and goals.
After years spent trading and developing a winning trading system, Kunal founded Bulls on Wall Street to teach others how to take control of their financial destinies. It started with a chat room where Kunal could talk about the stocks he was trading and watching, and a series of blogs and videos to provide market analysis. The site grew from there, as Kunal began using his experiences as a trader and teacher to hold webinars and live trading course sessions. After years of trading and honing his system, Kunal created the Bulls Bootcamp, a comprehensive trading course to impart everything he’s learned as a trader and provide the mentorship that was so helpful to him as a new trader.
Today, Kunal is still trading and teaching. He’s spoken at the Trader and Investor Summit, Traders4ACause gala event, been featured in numerous podcasts, and covered in the Huffington Post, BroBible, and Inc.com. In 2015, he spoke alongside market luminaries such as Peter Brandt, Jack Schwager, and James Dalton.
