You must have a highly successful plan in your trading tools, not think about what to trade next day. Speculation will take you nowhere.

How To Get Back Your Huge Trading Losses

Every trader’s journey starts with loses. Some huge, some very huge and some unbelievable loss.

But the fact is large or small everyone starts with a loss. Including me.

We all try to get back our losses trading the stock markets. Some succeed, some do not. But unfortunately only 5% traders succeed. 95% of traders remain losers for life and retire with much less money that they earned.

Some Ideas on How To Get Back Your Huge Trading Losses

Loss is a bad experience. But problems with traders is that they think 2000-3000 loss is small, but they forget that if this keeps repeating then it can go up to lakhs. Some do not even track their losses. They call me and say they lost more than 3 lakhs. read more

Do Not Believe Tips From Your Broker

We start dreaming big as soon as we open a demat and trading account. Demat account is different than a trading account. Demat account is like a bank account where we keep our money to buy shares or trade options/futures. Trading account is where we are allowed to buy shares, or trade options/futures.

The problem with novice traders is that as soon as they open a trading account they start dreaming big, bring lots of money to their demat account and start trading first “whatever they feel like”, then what their brokers or friends say, then whatever they see or read in any website or magazine, and then when nothing of the above works – they go for tips providers. read more

Nifty In A Range

Nifty (my favorite trading index) is dangling near 10500.

NIFTY 25-Jan-18 CE 10,600.00 has the Highest Open Interest – 13% increase.

Its quite strange that NIFTY 25-Jan-18 PE 9,000.00 has the Highest Open Interest in Nifty Puts.

Most High Open Interest are in Nifty Calls only.

Traders have a strong view of Bullish Markets.

It looks like buyers think Nifty will break out 10600, and sellers think it will not. Therefore 10600 has the highest Open Interest.

What does it mean?

It means – (will be told to my paid subscribers only of my option course). Free subscribers DO NOT get emails sent to my paid subscribers. read more
