“My risk management plan revolves around preserving capital and minimizing losses.”

Meet Kunal Pawar, a Funded Trader with Funding Frontier. Discover how Kunal and other traders secured funding and gain insights and tips for a successful trading journey.

Please introduce yourself: Who you are, your age, where you are from and what you do for a living?

My name is Kunal Pawar, I am 24 years old, and I am from Mumbai India. I am a full-time trader and educator.

How did you get introduced or start trading?

I got introduced to trading through Instagram, where I came across various trading accounts and resources that sparked my interest.

Do you have any hobbies and what do you enjoy outside of trading? Do you find that these hobbies etc benefit your trading? Please elaborate.
Outside of trading, I’m quite active in the gym and enjoy playing sports, teaching, and driving. I believe these activities not only provide a balance to my life but also help me manage stress effectively, which is crucial for maintaining a clear and focused mindset when trading.


What is your trading routine?/span>

My trading routine revolves around the New York session. Before getting into the markets, I make sure to allocate time for my gym sessions during the daytime to maintain my physical and mental well-being, which aids in my trading performance.

What are your goals with funded trading?
My primary goal with funded trading is to secure consistent profits and scale up my trading capital.

Do you have a trading plan in place, and do you strictly follow it? Please elaborate.
While I do have a general trading plan outlining my strategies and risk management principles, I also believe in adapting to market conditions and relying on intuition when necessary. I try to balance having a structured approach while remaining flexible enough to capitalize on trading opportunities as they come.

How would you describe your trading style?
I would describe my trading style as a combination of swing and day trading, where I analyze various timeframes to identify high-probability setups. I primarily focus on market structure and key levels to make informed trading decisions.

What did you find easier, the FUNDING FRONTIER Challenge or the Verification phase? Share your thoughts.
I believe the challenge phase is always harder due to the higher 7.5% profit target. I usually find the verification phase a bit easier because we already have the confidence from the previous phase.

How would you rate your experience with FUNDING FRONTIER?
I’d rate my experience a 10/10 due to the excellent service they provide and their consistent reliability in paying out their traders.

What advice would you give to other traders attempting the FUNDING FRONTIER Challenge?
Slow down and avoid rushing into trades. FOMO can cloud your judgment, so take your time to make informed decisions.

Do you plan to take another FUNDING FRONTIER Challenge to manage even bigger capital?
Yes, the opportunity to scale up and further refine my trading skills is a major goal of mine.

Describe your best trade.

One of my best trades occurred while trading XAU/USD during the New York Session. I recognized a strong trend, which met my entry criteria. So I entered and the trade hit my full take profit just 30 minutes later and I experienced little to no drawdown.

 

What is the number one piece of advice you would give to a new trader?
The number one piece of advice I would give to a new trader is to prioritize education and risk management. Take the time to learn the fundamentals of trading, develop a robust trading plan, and always prioritize capital preservation over profit chasing.


How did you first hear about FUNDING FRONTIER?

I first heard about Funding Frontier through a recommendation from a friend.

Can you describe your risk management plan?
My risk management plan revolves around preserving capital and minimizing losses. I typically risk a small percentage of my trading account on each trade, usually around 1%.
