How to Guess Sensex and Nifty Share Price Today for Intraday

This article was published on Thurs, 01-Sep-2022

Traders do a lot of speculative trading in the US as well as here in India. 70% of these trades in either options or futures are intraday. I asked a few of my customers why they trade only intraday – most of them replied the same. We do not want to take the overnight risk with our money. They were afraid of gap up or down opening the next day.

Well, there is nothing wrong with being afraid of the gap opening the next day, but most traders do not know that if they hedge their trades, the gap opening will not damage the position. The hedged trade works like a sword to protect the losses from the actual trade. read more

A Full-Time Trader Should Become Very Conservative

On Friday, July 22, 2022, I received a testimonial from one of my clients in Bangalore. He took retirement (Voluntary Retirement Opportunity (VRO)) from his job and switched to full-time trading. And he started reading my strategies. 🙂

Read above – he started reading the course. So happy that in 2022 when Youtube has taken over in almost every aspect of life – from listening to music to watching shows & movies to knowledge on everything – my strategies are something my clients look back to. This is clear that he too must have tried some strategy seen on Youtube – but later realized that it’s all not worth the time. read more

Learn How to Start Investing in U.S.A Stock Exchanges

This page has information on all the major U.S / U.S.A Stock Exchanges, how a person can start investing in them, and possible returns.

Before naming the major stock exchanges in the US I would like to discuss what happens in the US stock exchanges.

Important Information on Stock Exchanges (Applies to all stock exchanges in the world):

When you buy a company’s stock you become one of the owners of that company and are fully entitled to get the benefits of that ownership. Do not get too excited, you are only a part-owner and your rights and benefits are limited to the number of shares in percentage terms you own. For example, if a company declares a dividend of 100 dollars to be shared among its shareholders and suppose there are only 100 stocks of that company floating in the market and you own just one share, then you will get one dollar as a dividend. One share of 100 is 1% therefore the dividend you will receive will also be one percentage. read more

1. Economic Moat Keeps Changing of a Company:

What is Economic Moat?

“Economic Moat” is a long-term competitive advantage that a company holds that allows it to protect its market share and profitability. A company with a strong moat possesses a competitive advantage that is both strong and sustainable. The most effective moat is the Brand Name.

Can Non-U.S. Citizens Buy Stocks of U.S. Companies

In short, the answer is YES.

There is no regulation that says that you must be a citizen of the US to buy stocks of the US company. In India and other nations, there are many mutual funds that invest in US companies like Alphabet Inc. (earlier known as Google Inc.), Microsoft Corporation etc.

I am not sure about other countries, but an Indian can invest in US markets by opening a US brokerage account. You must have a PAN to open a US brokerage account. Please also note that to buy stocks you will have to transfer money to your account first before buying the stock. read more
