Checklist For New Stock Traders

Before new traders start trading they have “high hopes”. Here are some of the high hopes:

1. I will invest 5000 and make 10000 every month. They forget that its 100% return a month.
2. If Nifty will open gap up I will buy calls, if it opens gap down I will buy puts and make money. Its a myth that if there is a gap up the stock will keep going up or if gap down the stock will keep going down. Reversal is always possible.
3. Thought process of a new but rich-son trader: I will invest 1 lakh and make 1 crore in one year and prove my dad that he is a fool working hard in his business making just 30% return a year.
4. In five years time I will be a multimillionaire.
5. New option trader: I will buy an option for 10 and sell at 20 – doubling my money every time I trade because I have seen that happening many times. read more

Making Trade Adjustments Is It Helpful

Making trade adjustments can help you reduce losses to some extend but not eliminate loss. For example sometimes option buyers average out buying options. Like buying at 10 then 7 then 5, thinking that since the average buy rate has come down, if the stock takes a U-Turn they can exit in profits.

Very rarely it happens, their entire money invested becomes zero (option expires worthless). There is only 1% chance that within limited time-frame the stock revives and takes a U-turn and the trade becomes either profitable or the trader exits with a small loss. read more

When they see the stock is not poised to move they do not take the trade. The benefit of swing trading is efficient use of time and money and higher returns. However their are drawbacks as well like high brokerage commission and high losses if their trade goes wrong. read more
