When you lose money trading in stock markets – its just not the loss you must add the interest lost had you kept that money in a Bank Fixed Deposit.
Read this email I got:
Hi Dilip Bhai,
I was a regular trader in the stock market but form 2005 to 2007 after that I had lost my all money in the crash, which is around Rs.15 lakh. If I invested that money in FD that would be more than 40 lakhs. Just think what I lost in this market. Then I stopped trading for 10 years and I thought I need more education to trade in stock market and I found a teacher who taught me trading in option with hedging option and hedging option with future, pair trading in options, arbitraging with current and next month future, time decay technics with current month and next month option selling, 22 ways of option hedge trading like butterfly, collar, condor, straddle, strangle but ultimately none of them can make money for me. Now my experience is this that somehow market will fetch money from the trader, no trader can earn from this market for a long run, may be 5% of trader are exceptional or lucky or punter what ever. Honestly do you think I need to learn much more or to quite for ever.
