Sejul Gokal MSc., MSTA, CFTe is the Founder and Chief Technical Strategist at GO-TechniKAL Insight Ltd. which was launched in April 2018. He was born in Portugal and has been living in the U.K. since 2003.
Sejul has 10+ years’ experience in studying and trading financial markets and became a qualified market technician in 2011, holding both MSTA & CFTe professional designations. He specializes in macro and semi-discretionary technical analysis with particular focus in FX and Fixed Income markets. Sejul manages and runs his own FICC focused personal fund and in 2021 generated 31R with a avg. monthly max. DD 3.1%.
From a very young age Sejul has taken a high interest in global financial markets and chart analysis, preferring to always use real money to invest and express his view of the world, often through the lens of a chart. Sejul strongly believes that having ‘skin in the game’ allows him to produce more insightful, realistic and actionable chart ideas. His philosophy and pledge to his clients is to always present an idea with clearly defined parameters of risk/reward and track performance on a regular basis.
Sejul previously worked for Bloomberg L.P for almost a decade and up until early 2018 was their Senior FICC Technical Strategist based in London, U.K. He was tasked with writing and publishing market strategy notes predominantly in FICC markets which were targeted to an institutional client base. His reports and live commentary were published on Bloomberg Professional news wire. He also frequently appeared on Bloomberg TV, presenting tactical trade ideas live on air.
Throughout his career at Bloomberg, Sejul was able to nurture strong relationships with many institutional trading desks (including G3 Central Banks, top ranked hedge-funds, global multi-nationals), which allowed him to build a wealth of knowledge and experience that he incorporates in his day-to-day analysis.
Many institutional traders and macro portfolio managers seek Sejul’s guidance on tactical trading, market timing and risk-management. His global asset market reach and coverage allows him to take a holistic approach when identifying and discussing opportunistic trade ideas, making this a unique feature of his analysis of financial markets.
He has a masters degree (MSc) in International Finance from Leeds University and has taken various diploma level qualifications in Technical Analysis.
When not immersed in the world of charting and trading, you are likely to find Sejul in a tennis court. Sejul plays tennis at a competitive level, currently partaking in club level tournaments across Middlesex county in London. He has just got into Kick-Boxing and training with a PT at a UFC gym.
