Good Morning,

Since the start of the pandemic, India has been witnessing a fintech revolution. Over the last two years, India added 15 million-plus demat accounts, the highest so far, and most of those new account openings have been driven by new-to-market retail investors.

Companies like Zerodha, Upstox, Groww, Paytm Money etc are making it easy for an investor to access the bourses, and have democratised stock trading through easy paperwork, personalised investment advice, and bringing stockbrokers to investors.

Enter trading strategy platforms that are not only making retail investing more conscientious, more deliberate and research-driven, but also taking the minute-by-minute monitoring of trades out of the equation by automating trading. 

They’re helping retail investors make more informed decisions that lead to better returns and fewer losses, as well as helping them diversify their portfolios so they’re able to benefit from more metaphorical eggs in their baskets.

“While markets are mushrooming on one side, we’d be missing the wood for the trees if we fail to spot them deflating on the other, as most traders quit after their first few losses. The power of trading strategies, combined with the right tools to execute them, improves both the trade and the trader,” Arshad Fahoum, Chief Product Officer at Market Pulse, tells YourStory.
