Why You Must Hold Some Good Stocks Forever

In this post, I will discuss why holding a few good stocks forever is good. What is forever? 10 years or more.
What is the likelihood of holding a share for 10 years? Well very likely. But how many investors hold even a single share for 10 years? Very few.

Well, I do have a course on how to select stocks to hold for the long term. I do not have a page on that because of the reason given above – not many investors hold a share for 10 years. If interested you can WhatsApp me.

Option theta is very important indicator for traders whether you want to buy or sell options. It helps to predict how over time the price of the option will change.

Theta is time value of options, means options expire on a certain date so their life is limited. Time value is built in the premium of the option, of course it ends when the option expires on the expiry date. If you want to read Option Greeks in details you can read here.

Time decay accelerates as an option nears its expiration date. It is the fasted on the last day of its life. Option cannot be traded once the market closes on its expiry date. All the traded contracts are settled for profit and losses on this date. read more


How To Prepare For Stock Trading in 2021

Here is a list of things you can prepare before the year ends so that you trade stocks well in the year 2021.

1. Check you past trades of 2020. See what mistakes you did. Write them down and try not to repeat those mistakes.

2. In the trades that you were right and book profit – write what happened that you made profits and what you could have done to get better results. You can do these corrections in the trade taken in the year 2021.

3. If there was more than 10,000 loss in a single trade – write down why you did not take a stop loss. Even if your reasoning is correct, it is 100% WRONG not to take a stop loss at minimum 2 and maximum 5% of the margin blocked in a trade. read more

Personally, I do not like intraday trading. I was caught doing it while in a job in 2007 and was sacked. read more
