Rohit Mandhotra

Proprietary Trading, FX Spot and Options

Summary

I am a professional trader with a 10 years experience across asset classes. Currently I am a FX trader with one of the leading banks in India. I trade in G10 FX spot and options. I also trade INR spot, forwards and futures. At the proprietary trading desk, the trades are a mix of short and medium term strategies and in size. The view formation is largely on fundamentals and execution is on technical analysis. For the very short term I trade largely based on chart reading.

To enhance my learning I have also enrolled for the CMT Level 2 this April. As I also run the desk for the systematic trading where I run positions based on back testing and AI simulation, to supplement my strategies I am also enrolled for a Executive Program in Algo Trading. I have also traded in commodity futures and physicals.

For my personal portfolio I run a mix of debt, equity and real estate with aggressive allocation towards equities currently.
