2019 Indian General Elections are due to be held in India between April and May 2019 to constitute the 17th Lok Sabha. Its obvious that a lot of speculative trading will happen from now until the results are declared. In fact for one month after the results are declared there will be volatility.

See this movement of Nifty last six months from October 2018 to February 2019:

Nifty Oct to Feb 2019

Nearly 1500 points drop from Sep to Nov 18 and then 1000 points surge in next 2 months. This is volatility. A 500 points up and down in a few months is considered stable stock markets – but 1500 move points is above average volatility. Be prepared for this for next few months. read more

2) Taking profits early in the fear of making a loss if you do not take out the profit.

Other Mistakes:

3) Averaging a losing trade : This is again a blunder. You should just take a stop loss that is all. Averaging a losing trade means you will lose more. read more

India VIX Not Going Down

Note: This is part of my newsletter sent to my Nifty Course subscribers only. Some part which are part of my strategies may not be posted here.
