Anand Sanghvi, aka “Sang Lucci”, is the founder and head trader at Sanglucci.com. Sang Lucci has successfully traded equities and options since 2006, beginning his career as a proprietary trader at PTG Capital. After two years of grueling trial and error, he had been named head trader and started producing more $2000 days than he knew what to do with, always using tape reading and options to make his plays. He left in 2009 to manage his own money, and while the rest of the market was crashing, he infamously turned $50,000 into over $2,400,000. He soon founded Sanglucci.com.

Sanglucci.com is the public face of multiple business operations that provide investors, algorithmic and non-algorithmic professionals, and aspiring traders with one thing beyond anything else: access.

Through our written and video content on Sanglucci.com, we use firsthand accounts and in-depth journalism to inform the public about the forces shaping the modern financial industry. Our educational services provide students with top-notch education from expert traders excelling in options, tape reading, market sentiment analysis, trading psychology and behavioral management, commission structures and trade execution technology.

Sang Lucci Capital Partners, LP launched in February of 2012 as a hedge fund trading weekly and monthly options for select accredited investors. Since inception, the fund has produced substantial returns on investment and continues to grow alongside investors seeking a high-risk, high-return allocation within their broader investment portfolios.

Round Table

Bao (Modern Rock)

Bao, more commonly known online as @Modern_Rock (aka THE Trading Fish @mrockrulez), graduated from UC Davis with a degree in Engineering and spent 8 years as a developer during the .COM days in Silicon Valley. However, Bao was more interested in trading stocks than he was programming applications. He became instantly hooked when his very first trade on Silicon Graphics (SGI) made him 30% overnight.

Bao moved to NYC around 2000 during which time he became really focused in day trading and decided to become a full time trader, trading exclusively for himself.

Although Bao currently trades all types of US equity stocks, for many years his expertise was in the area of penny stocks, where he made a name for himself as “Modern_Rock”.

Bao currently lives in Silicon Valley, CA and spends his time traveling and paying it forward, sharing his trading knowledge for free via THE Trading Fish @mrockrulez
