I help some traders (who are willing to get help) open account with a discount brokerage firm.

I DO NOT give them any gifts in kind or cash to open account under me. This is totally optional. I have never and never will force anyone or has never set any conditions whatsoever to open a trading account under me. This is totally optional help and the final decision lies with the trader if they want to open a trading account under me or not.
Other than that I only try to help retail stock & derivative traders through the articles and education provided in this blog, because I myself lost 7 Lakhs trying speculative trading without knowledge and I know the pain most traders feel after losing money doing speculative trading. I just want to help them by spreading knowledge through this website.
I have worked hard, done my research properly and written the articles in this website out of my experiences as a trader and also using knowledge I got reading several books, websites, forums, eBooks, online journals etc.

1. I DO NOT offer tips or advisory services either to buy/sell a Stock, Derivative (Option or Future), Commodities and/or any financial instrument.

Note: I am Very Thankful to Mr. Mark D Wolfinger who personally thought me a lot on conservative option trading strategies. I could not have gained whatever knowledge I have today if he did not teach me personally. Just to let you know more about him:
Mr. Mark D Wolfinger grew up in Brooklyn, USA, and in an earlier life, earned a PhD (chemistry) from Northwestern University. After several years as a research chemist, in 1976 he moved to Chicago to trade options. Over the next 23 years, he was primarily a CBOE Market Maker, but also worked as a risk manager. He left CBOE – Chicago Board Options Exchange in 2000 and began a career as an educator. He has published several books on option education.
Small brief: In 1968, commodity futures volume were very low so to increase business an open-outcry exchange for stock options, modeled after the method for trading futures was created and called as the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE). It was made by Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT).
Chicago Board Options Exchange had implemented Black Scholes Model For Option Pricing when Fischer Black and Myron Scholes were awarded Nobel Prize in Economics for their contribution to options pricing. Some rules were set as expiration dates and rest and some very knowldegeble person were required to manage Option Trading in Chicago Board Options Exchange. My Guru Mr. Mark D Wolfinger was selected as one of the initial market makers of Chicago Board Options Exchange.
