Developer (About Me)

  • AutoTrader has been built by Pritesh Mhatre
  • 10+ years of experience in developing financial software
  • 3+ years in Morgan Stanley Portfolio Risk Management systems
  • 4+ years building large scale algorithmic trading systems
  • Started stocksdeveloper.in in 2017 to help retail clients enter into algorithmic trading

I have around 15 years of experience developing Financial Software. I took a break from my career to start my own algorithmic trading setup. This new journey started well and along with my own proprietary trading systems, I also started building automation systems for retail traders, fund managers and HNIs. I was employed with firms like Morgan Stanley, HSBC & SunGard. I work on various technologies, but my strengths are building server side cloud based algorithmic trading systems built primarily using Java programming language. Apart from all of this, I am a big fan of Formula 1 racing :-)

      We do trade but those are our proprietary systems, not for public. We are not into finance as such & most of our trading is driven by data analysis. We do have very strong knowledge of technology and trading systems. However any experienced person can tell you that knowing how the market works is not sufficient to make money; for that you need to be able to predict the price movements.
