Stocks & Commodities V. 23:8 (98, 82): At The Close by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan
Here’s an informal question and answer with Sohail Asghar,
president of PennyStockAction.com and a pioneer of two
independent home-based activities, penny stock trading and
How did you get interested in the markets?
In 1986 I visited Canada and saw my cousin daytrading on
a regular basis. He introduced me to some others who were
daytrading as a home-based activity. At that time, daytrading
wasn’t a popular activity in France.
What did you find exciting about active trading?
When I saw how popular daytrading was in the US and
Canada and how people worked from home and handled their
own capital in such a smart way, I really wanted to look into
the possibilities of doing it for myself when I returned to
France. I really liked that an active trader has to be in a
challenging spirit vs. the stock market.
