Insider Trading Analysis of Ruchi Soya Stock

Team worked on a research paper elaborating on the curious story of Who or what exactly happened behind Ruchi Soya’s 9000% move in less than a year when the world was in a recession. Patterns, regulations, history of other bankrupt companies, consequences of insider trading were studied. Shareholding for the last decade and day in-out transactions data for the script were sourced from NSE.

Induction Process

The process starts with inviting registrations from budding financial enthusiasts (complete noobs are also encouraged to explore) by filling out our specially curated questionnaire form. The entrants are expected to complete Task 1 (gauging Genera financial knowledge) and Task 2 (testing technical skills) to the best of their ability within the deadlines.

Finally based on the quality of the work submitted, the finalists are personally informed of their Personal Interviews slots (evaluated on their personality traits and Tasks submissions). Based on their performance, we select the most enthusiastic, eager to learn, determined candidates. (pre-financial knowledge is not a requirement but the inductees are expected to grow and start learning from Day 1 of the Induction procedure)
