Short selling is selling stocks without have the stocks in demat account. Short selling equities must be closed the same day (intraday) or market makers will close the stock in auction and you will have to accept whatever price market makers get in auction. Usually this results in losses. Therefore short selling should be done intraday only and must traded under (MIS) Margin Intraday Square-off.

There are many Psychological Obstacles For Traders. No greed control, no emotions control – trade whenever you feel like trading, itching to trade just to trade and have fun, etc.

All of these are dangerous to your trading account.

You should trade only when an opportunity comes not wherever you feel like or you think so.

A few days back one person called me and said he is losing 94k on a put option. Invested 1 lakh and current value 6k 🙁

When I asked him did you hedge? He said what is hedge? read more


Look at this SMS I received today:

Do Not Believe In Guaranteed Profit SMS

Look at the hidden language – lets disseminate it:

1. Earn up to 3 Lakhs Weekly
2. Free Software
3. 100% Confirmed Calls

Which one do you believe is true?


Lets get deeper. Whose fault is it? No its not entirely his fault. More than 90% of traders still believe that there are some software that can generate calls or signals to buy and sell options/futures/equities.

But where is that software? Who made it? What’s his name?

You will not find it as there is none. read more

Nifty on 18-Apr-2018

See the pic clearly. Till 1.45 pm all intraday traders must be long trying to make quick bucks. But then what happened?


I can bet ALL TECHNICAL INDICATORS – those 5 min charts, 15 min charts, 1 hours charts, candle sticks, bollinger bands, Moving average convergence divergence (MACD), and any other indicator that I am missing must be giving only one signal


And then when the trader goes long thanking the technical indicators, the software that they bought for a few lakhs or paying a monthly fees goes bust (fails) all of a sudden. read more
