For a few years, Soumyo Roy has run a popular blog where he shares his busy life and discusses trading, the activity that made him a millionaire. Among other things, he runs a closed group on a messaging service where he helps those who want to earn from their trading. We interviewed him about why he is not afraid to share his secrets and about what to do to earn as much as he does.
Roy, tell us about your days. What’s your schedule?
– In truth, I’m very happy about the fact that I don’t have a fixed schedule for my days. Everything depends on my mood and what’s going on. Some days I may allow myself to sleep in past noon and in the evening go out on the yacht or to a nice restaurant nearby. Other days I’ll sit at home all day trading and answering messages on WhatsApp. I can trade and write blog posts from anywhere I want. All I need for it is a laptop and stable Internet.
Why did you decide to help others at all? You’ll agree that it’s not the most typical behavior for a millionaire in India
– You know, I come from a comfortable family myself, but I’ve seen a lot in my life. Certainly, when I was young, I tried not to notice the poverty that prevails in the country. But growing up, I realized that not everyone is as lucky as I have been. I wanted to help, to show that it is possible to earn money from things other than dirty, thankless work. I’ve found success, and I hope other people do, too.
Whatever you say, money is freedom and a great motivator for self development. Money offers the opportunity to get a great education, to choose a profession you like, and, ultimately, to live a fuller and more interesting life.
This probably sounds overly exuberant, but I’m not here to help only certain people, but all of India. If that can be called patriotism, I guess I’m a patriot.
Wow. That’s powerful! Do I understand correctly that your closed trading group is also part of that grand plan?
– Yeah, that’s right. Let’s clarify one thing, though: it is not educational, as it may seem at first glance. It is, really, another form of charity. I’m not offering training in trading. I’m offering the chance to follow and copy the trades I complete myself. Think about it: most people don’t have the time to learn the fundamentals and nuances of trading. They’re busy with work, their families, everything. I spent a few years learning trading, and I can’t ask that level of dedication from everyone.
What does the group look like? What goes on there?
– It’s a closed group on the Telegram messenger where, every day, I post messages about which trades I plan to make. That is, I start trading, and I share my trades in the chat, just minutes before I open them myself. If you manage to repeat them, you earn together with me.( Newsearning )
