NSE EOD as on Thursday, 07-Oct-2021

In the last one year, Nifty rallied from 11669 to 17790 as of 07-Oct-21 closing. That’s a growth of almost 52%.

Now ask yourself this question – has your trading account gained 52% in the last one year? Or even 25% (half of it)?

Or has it lost money?

If you lost money then what mistakes you did?

Do you repeat this mistake?

Maybe yes.

But do you want to repeat this mistake again and again? If yes the results will be the same.

Therefore you must learn how to trade correctly with a proper plan. A losing trade loses because there is no proper planning. After doing my courses you will become a disciplined trader. read more


If India VIX is Low Options Premium Will Also be Low

First what is India VIX Index?

Volatility Index is a measure of market’s expectation of volatility over the near term. Volatility is often described as the “rate and magnitude of changes in prices” and in finance often referred to as risk. Volatility Index is a measure, of the amount by which an underlying Index is expected to fluctuate, in the near term, (calculated as annualised volatility, denoted in percentage e.g. 20%) based on the order book of the underlying index options.

I have written earlier in my blog on managing the personal financial portfolio and asset allocation which I follow personally, you can read it here. But I am no genius, so writing this post to help you understand a very popular stock investment, asset allocation and money management strategy known as “The Kelly Criterion”.

First a word on who is Kelly?

John Kelly was a physicist working with AT&T’s Bell Laboratory. He developed the Kelly Criterion to assist long-distance telephone signal noise issues in AT&T. In 1956, John Kelly published a paper titled A New Interpretation of Information Rate, now available as a book – Bet Smart: The Kelly System for Gambling and Investing. In the paper, he draws an analogy between the outcomes of a gambling game and the transmission of symbols over a communications channel. This is basically an allocation technique also called the Kelly strategy, Kelly formula, or Kelly bet, that we can follow in our investments that you will read in this article. Kelly’s original paper can be found here ( not easy to understand, lots of mathematics there). In the paper, Kelly described a simple and elegant way for investors to strategically allocate capital in the face of uncertainty. This is what is now known as the Kelly Criterion. read more

Share or Stock Buyback or Repurchase Explained

Lots of investors are still confused when they hear XYZ company is buying back its shares from the public. They do not understand what exactly is Share/Stock Buyback/Repurchase. 

Please note that all these mean the same thing:

– Share Buyback
– Share Repurchase
– Stock Buyback Share or Stock Buyback or Explained
– Stock Repurchase

Let me first explain in short what exactly is Share Buyback.

A share buyback happens when the issuing company pays shareholders the market value per share and re-absorbs that portion of its ownership that was previously distributed among public and private investors. Once this happens the owners of the public and private investors decrease in the shareholding pattern. One immediate and short term effect of this is that the EPS (Earning Per Share) increases of the company. This increases the valuation of the company in the stock market and may take the price of its share a tad higher. read more
