I have been explaining for long why I do not offer my course for free, because people do not give value to anything free. This post will prove the point. This is an interesting post, nothing to do with options but human psychology. Please read and let me know what you think. There is something I have decided which you will know in the end.

Even before I started this blog, I acquired good knowledge of finance, money management, investing, stock markets etc. So whenever my friends talked about their financial advisers/bank managers giving them investing advice – I used to give them free advice – usually telling them not to go by their advice. I do not like advice from these people as most sell ULIP (Unit Linked Insurance Plans – A Unit Linked Insurance Plan (ULIP) is a product offered by insurance companies that, unlike a pure insurance policy, gives investors both insurance and investment under a single integrated plan) to generate commissions. Customers make almost nil returns when these plans mature, while the agents/employees make hefty commissions. Customers realize only when these products mature. Most do not even pay the full term and close the plan in 3-4 years making huge losses.

Unfortunately they used to confront me asking how come I know more than them, and invested in what their financial advisers sold them. So I have stopped advising my friends. Even if they ask for advice, I tell them to do what they think is the best for them, because deep down I know they will not listen to me.

When I started this blog in 2014 unknown people started asking me questions, of course stock markets in general and options in particular. At that time the site did not have my contact number, only the contact us form. Initially it was a couple of emails a day, but as the traffic grew, emails grew to 20-25 a day. I used to spend some 3-5 hours daily helping people for free. I was very happy doing it. I thought this time the pattern will differ, people will listen to me, but no Sir I was wrong. These people started sending me their own trades and “victories” in one or two trades. I did not receive a single thanks email in those 4-5 months of helping people for free. In fact I got back questions on my answers like – “why you think so?”, “what if this happens – so I am not heeding to your advice”, and when I used to give them good hedging advice I got answers like, “this will reduce my profits I don’t like it.”

I was started to getting frustrated when one day when my wife told me I was just wasting my time, I realized I really was. I therefore started a paid conservative option course.

What I found that when you advice for free, the pattern of response remains same. Friends or unknown people, no one appreciates free advice even if it comes from an expert.

However I kept giving free advice occasionally on my site to my subscribers. But recently something strange happened. Whenever I send emails to my 7000+ email subscribers (email subscribers only, not paid customers) a couple of them unsubscribe. That’s OK, this is quite natural. But on 15th March 2016 more than 15 unsubscribed. This was my last email to book profit on 7000 PE sold that I advised to sell on 8th Mar 2016.

See this – I deleted a few emails could be around 5, as I thought it to be normal but then this happened:


15 unsubscribed in a single day – I was shocked. I mean here I am doing research like a fool, trying to help you to make money just because you subscribed to my site and told you an almost guaranteed trade to make money without taking a single paise from any one, and when I asked to booked profits you get annoyed. Strange.

Some in fact thought I am cheating people. See this:


Basically he does not believe I sent an email on 8th. The email would have gone into SPAM folder, or he may not have opened it – is that my fault? So thought may be this person subscribed after 8th so I politely asked him the subscription date. His answer – if you do not remember then do not send email. Am I suppose to remember when 7000 people subscribed to receive my newsletters? How is that possible? Ok I could have seen it in my system but I thought he could be a recent subscriber so asked just to know what happened. But I got this strange reply. 🙁

One person thought this to be a joke.


🙁 🙁 Joke??? Really???

I have given free advice on my site a lot of times:

ICICI Bank book profits 11.32% rerun in 35 days.
10% in 45 days.
India VIX Dropped book profits
How to trade the Budget Day 2016/
6800 bottom for Nifty and other ideas to trade
Puts Costly than Calls, Arbitrage Opportunity
Long Strangle book your profits
Book profits in Put Credit Spread/

And many more. Had people taken them seriously they would have made good profits. But did they?

After so many free advice I got only one response here:

Puts costly than Calls, Arbitrage Opportunity. See the comment there someone made 1016 bucks:


Could be 2 more people who did not bother to inform me. So out of thousands of subscribers only 3-4 actually made money off these free advice. The rest never bothered with free advice. Which proves free advice is useless.

One of my advice failed though:


This was buy Axis bank at 484. It is currently around 430. But frankly I doubt anyone invested, and if someone actually did they can hold their investments. After all its a good company like Axis bank and you are sure to make a profit – its just matter of time.

Looks like someone was waiting for something I said to fail. So I got a WhatsApp message a few days later when Axis bank stock fell 10% from that level – “someone with too much ego fails – what happened to your Axis bank”?

That message is deleted. I felt very embarrassed and was like scratching my head. I told him politely that I am no super computer and I can fail – this is part of our life and you are free to take my advice – after all its free. He then messaged me – “then do not advise”.

One failure out of so many and you get scolded. 🙂

A few days back I got an email from a retired 60+ doctor. At the age of 60+ he involves in dangerous aggressive trading – selling naked puts. He was in huge losses. I thought I should help him and ask him to stop this aggressive trading as this can destroy his wealth that he made through years of savings. I also wanted him to do my option course as it is best suited to retired people – at least the conservative strategies. It is properly hedged, returns beat inflation by far, it makes passive income plus it gives time to enjoy life without too much stress thinking about the stock markets. In due course of time lots of emails got exchanged between us. Neither he listened to my advice, nor he did my course.

He wasted his time, I wasted mine. 🙁

When I emailed him after a few days telling him that he forgot me after the help, he replied by saying he did not forget, but he learned a lesson from the loss. Do not know what lesson he learned, but at the age of 60 you do not have time to learn lessons or do experiments with stock markets. Suppose he learns the perfect strategy by the time he is 65, where is the time to get the lost money back plus make a profit? It is strange he is not wiling to pay just 5000 for the course and learn a few conservative strategies. He is rather willing to lose lakhs of money and time trying to do things on his own. This at the age of 60. Strange.

Whatever happened, I felt like a fool. 🙂

See his email:


I have come to the conclusion that Free Advice is NOT respected or given value and none of my subscribers is trading them, so basically I am wasting my time.

Therefore hence:

“I will NEVER publish any Free Advice to Buy/Sell a Stock, Option or Future.”

I may trade myself and make money, but never write in this site. I will also not offer free advice to anyone by emails.

Henceforth, my full attention will be my paid subscribers of the course.

And therefore all my future newsletters will ensure my paid subscribers get help to trade my strategies better. This includes when to trade my strategies and VIX related newsletters.

Of course I will keep writing articles on stock markets, options and futures, but I will NEVER directly endorse buying or selling a stock or option.

On all of the above free strategies, had I charged you even Rs. 1000/- you would have taken it very seriously, given it value and actually traded and made a profit. You would be happy and I would be happy too.

A lot of people make fake stories of losses and email me to send them the strategies for free to help them recover lost money. Emotional blackmail. Of course I ask them politely to pay so that they give it value. I hope all those people now understand why did not send them the strategies for free.

If you are thinking of doing my course you should pay to get the course otherwise you will never give a serious thought to it and you will not have the motivation to seriously trade them. If you do not pay the fees you will never have any respect for it and it will just by lying in your inbox just like all other dead emails.

Hundreds of customers testimonials. 80% success rate, 3% a month looks like joke when some people make lakhs per day. (Yes Ravi still doing great. I will share his latest email later this month.) Stress free trading. 5000 is not a big deal and my service for 1 year makes this a no brainier.

So please do not keep waiting for free tips, when you will get it, you will not value it. Learn to pay, buy the course today.

Disclaimer: I have never thought myself as an expert of stock markets. I consider myself a very conservative and hard working trader that is it. The topic of the post is to help you understand the basis of the post, because a lot of people think I am guru or expert but still do not give value to my free advice – that is why “expert” word is used in the topic of this post. When I started trading I was even worse than you. Knowledge changed me completely.

    Hey dilip,
    Can feel your Pain. Its true what u told.
    But an advice from me ( and its free 😉 lol).
    Now c’mon just think about ur level, number of subscribers and the maturity of ur knowledge.
    If 15 have gone 150 join, don’t change the way u r doing.
    This is the way that makes u “the dilip shaw”.
    Take it like as ” कचरा नीकल गया”.
    Keep on doing in same way. U know we love u boss.
    Good night.

    • Dilip Shaw March 17, 2016, 9:25 pm

      Thanks Amit. The course I have not offered anyone for free. Some wanted to trade it for their strategies and some wanted to trade for a list of email subscribers. I asked them to pay for the course and if need be I will pay for their service/product. But I will not trade this for anything for three reasons:

      1) Rules remains same for all – it is not justified some get for free, some don’t.
      2) Same as above. They will not value it.
      3) They will not get my support. Without my support the course is nothing.

      And you know what kind of strategies they were telling me – long strangle because it doubled money in one of the months last year. Lol for the rest of the months keep losing. 🙂

      You can get a list of 10k fake subscribers for 500 bucks. 🙂

      But what amazes me how people want to save 5k for a strategy that has real proof from real people making money. Not a single website out there has a so many screen shots of emails & whatsapp of their customers. All they have is a performance sheet with no authenticity to prove it is correct. Moreover I cannot record when people call me to say thank you. And then there are countless who do not bother to send a testimonial.

      And 1 year support on 5k is actually free – what more can I do?

      But I agree every society will have people demand things for free and so I will keep getting those emails. However henceforth I will delete them. Saving our time.

      Thanks for the comments. Correct, let those 15 people go, I will work for people who believe in me and pay for my service.

      Cheers 🙂

  • m s rao March 17, 2016, 9:50 pm

    Dilip ji,


    The more popular U r the more brick bats U r sure to receive.

    This is the price U have to keep paying for being popular.

    Some of the folks criticize U out of sheer jealousy.

    U have to bear with it.

    Raise Ur tolerance levels.

    We know from the past how much ordinary folks followed the advises of sages like Lord Krishna, Lord Buddha, Christ, Socrates etc.

    Sage advises r never followed by Ordinary folks in any field.

    All they want is magic or one day wonders.

    Don’t worry if today onward if some folks criticize even this decision saying ‘ Now Dilip’s free advises/ samplings r over and he has gone fully commercial. ‘

    As famously told in BHAGAVAD GITA, ‘ Do Ur karma whatever U deem fit & leave the result to the GOD ‘.

    Now a days Ur posts r spelling mistakes free, this shows how much care U r taking about Ur posts.

    After so many days i found a spelling mistake. Hope U don’t mind pointing it.

    Plz correct the following line :

    In the para under the line ” He wasted his time, I wasted mine. ”

    ‘ Do not know what lessen he learned,.. ‘


    ‘ Do not know what lesson he learned,… “.


    M S Rao

    P.S. : I like Amit Mishra ji’s above comment & fully agree with him.

    • Dilip Shaw March 18, 2016, 12:56 pm

      Hi Sir,


      >> Hope U don’t mind pointing it.

      I have deep regards for you. You are helping me voluntarily, WITHOUT hoping for any favor back. I know how difficult it is to find out such small mistakes and have the motivation to inform.

      So please keep doing it. 🙂

      >> Raise Ur tolerance levels.

      Sure Sir. I now have to decide what is worth my time and have to ignore all negative energy.

      >> All they want is magic or one day wonders.

      True. I can sell 50% more if I tell a simple lie – the course will bring magical returns. I don’t, thus many do not pay for this simple reason. I do not care. I will only say the truth whether people buy or not.

      >> ‘ Do Ur karma whatever U deem fit & leave the result to the GOD ‘.

      This I have actually experienced in real life. God has been very kind to me. I had no idea the site will be like this when I started – its all because of the Almighty.

      Thank You.

  • S k Jakhar March 18, 2016, 8:24 am

    Dear Dilip,

    If you remembered a few days back I whatsapped you that please make a separate email list of your paid subscribers so we can benefited.
    Same day you advised for 7000 PE Sell advise.
    I was in position of strategy 1 before your advice, but after reading your mail I got a bit confidence and changed the no of lots, you better know which side.

    You have enough experience and better than us.

    So again I request you again please separate the paid subscribers and get them benefited because none of your mails or advise are free for them who actually paid.


    • Dilip Shaw March 18, 2016, 1:14 pm


      I am also thinking on those lines, but there are issues.

      1. I pay to keep emails in system and its not small money. And I pay every month.

      2. Now if I make a second list of paid customers I will have to pay for the current list and the new list – so my expenses increases. If expenses increases I will have to increase the fee, which I am not comfortable in.

      3. My customer pays me once, not every month. But if I make a separate list then of course it cannot come for free. I am sure not everyone will pay me a monthly fee.

      Nice to know you made a profit.

      I will look into your suggestion though.


  • Virendra March 18, 2016, 8:34 am

    Hi Dilip,

    Its very sad that these kind of people exist.who don’t value your good effort.
    But remember there are number of people who appreciate your efforts…thats why you have so many subscribers.
    I am one of them.
    From the day I have subscribed you I read all your email…and others also be doing same….ya some people will be crap…but you should ignore them as those people are irrelevant for you…

    I am an option trader (virtual) and learner who love your way…I wanted to join your course
    But the reason Why I didn’t do your course is I am not having money to invest in your strategy as it requires margin…means shorting….
    I have only balance about 20k and I am adding and saving every month…so you can understand why some people who appreciate you but still cant join your course…..i don’t want anything for freee but time will come when I pay you and get the strategy.even if fees increases to 50k.

    Why you should not stop your free advise is because this the reason why people trust you ..they have seen it coming true…
    So they know if they buy this course it will be always benefits for the….

    Don’t get frustetd with. Those idiots….your subscribers will increase everyday and they will claim your victory and spread how good you are…


    • Dilip Shaw March 18, 2016, 4:30 pm

      Yes you make sense.
      But I really do not think people buy my course because I told to buy such a stock and it increased in value. I offer a course in option trading not stock investments. That is the reason I was a bit shocked. If some of them got annoyed because a stock did not perform as expected that’s fine – but hey I offer a course on options and when I say to do something on that option, its almost guaranteed profits then if people get annoyed – I have to think should I ever do this again.
      I thought some people will buy my course thinking I have some knowledge of options – but totally opposite happened. 🙁

      So education will continue, but there will not be direct help like buy this option/stock or sell it.

      One people do not trade, two they think I am showing off, three no one gets motivated to buy my course because of this free advice. So I think I would better stop and trade these on my own.

      Yes please do the course when you have around 80k in your account.

  • Harshad Shah March 18, 2016, 8:52 am

    Who says you had not sent the said email. I just did your course and it was my first trade on the conservative stock option strategy. In my life of trading ( more than 15 yrs) First time I shorted options as per your email and the course. And first time I made money by this way of your course and that too without any stress or fear to loose money.
    Many many thanks for your email and the course you sent to me.
    Keep it up.
    Harshad Shah

    • Dilip Shaw March 18, 2016, 1:20 pm

      Hi Harshad,
      Nice to know you made good profits without stress.
      Unfortunately some people think so, but its ok – not all fingers are of the same size and shape.
      I can deal with it.

      Thanks for your concern.

  • Sarnendu Pradhan March 18, 2016, 9:11 am

    Personal Financial service is the field where most common people ends up getting fooled; as this is the area where most of GREED exists ! Thus common people gets easily victimized due to lack of Financial Literacy & the money trap regularly nurtured by opportunist lobby of middle-man in this service chain !

    This just only managed flourishing huge TRUST-DEFICIT into this sector !

    It’s neither common people’s fault; nor rare Angel like you !

    Thus today one more Angel succumbed to the Trust deficit environment continuously getting engineered by Opportunist’s Lobby of Personal Financial Service Sector !

    • Dilip Shaw March 18, 2016, 1:24 pm

      Hi Sarnendu,

      True, lots of people get fooled in the personal fiance sector and mostly its their ignorance and greed to be blamed. Opportunist make use of this emotion.

      Let them do what they want to do, I will keep educating.

      Only difference is that the free advises will now vanish from the site.


  • avinash March 18, 2016, 10:34 am

    I have already taken your course about 5-6 months back so kindly keep mailing your posts & related articles and advice because they are highly informative & of course profitable.


    • Dilip Shaw March 18, 2016, 4:17 pm

      Thanks Avinash. Nice to know you are making profits since last 5-6 months. Keep it up.

  • Bhhavya March 18, 2016, 10:35 am


    Ignore the critics as it’s their job to criticize. You are best at your job, keep rising. Most important is be happy and proud of yourself and if something is stressing your mind then get rid of that thing.


    • Dilip Shaw March 18, 2016, 1:29 pm

      Yes this is what the way forward.

  • RAJAN March 18, 2016, 10:37 am


    Fully agreed with your view.

    Keep up your good work.

    Try to focus more on your paid subscribers.

    • Dilip Shaw March 18, 2016, 1:25 pm

      Thanks Rajan, yes paid subscribers will be my priority now.

  • Jai March 18, 2016, 10:41 am

    Good for you Dilip! 🙂

    I for one am very happy to hear, that you’ll be focusing more on paid
    Don’t let the rude and ungrateful disturb your Zen.

    Your course has given me the ability to trade with confidence, limiting
    losses and taking small profits as they come. I guess what I’m trying to
    say is ” A Big Thank You ! ” 🙂

    You have a great day now!


    • Dilip Shaw March 18, 2016, 4:12 pm

      Thanks Jai – you are one of those rare customers who never asked a single question after taking the course, and nice to hear you are making profits. Yes I guess it is a correct decision. I will save my time, and help my paid subscribers. No more freebies. Thanks for the Thanks 🙂

  • Manish March 18, 2016, 11:57 am

    Dear friend,

    First of all i want to tell you right now I am not trading but I will do after march. I read your all articles & feel that you were accepting from people who are real “free”.

    You are doing great job don’t disappoint yourself from “free” people. They will rise only subscription number but there only will be some admire in this numbers.

    So do this noble work without accepting “free” people.


    • Dilip Shaw March 18, 2016, 4:07 pm

      Manish correct but the only problem is I cannot figure out who is looking to get only “free” advice. Signup is automated and I have no control on it. Thanks for the advice though.

  • Yogesh March 18, 2016, 12:23 pm

    Hi Dilip,

    Nice blog. As always I am very much impressed with the realities that you show. Problem is that people don’t like to face the realities of life. I have always found your advice about trading psychology useful.

    Thanks & Regards,

    • Dilip Shaw March 18, 2016, 3:53 pm

      Thanks Yogesh. Yes people love to live in a “virtual life”. Well said.

  • Ragunathan March 18, 2016, 12:57 pm


    Don’t bother about them. I understood your pain. When we lost something and after some hard work got back what we lost, what happened in between was “experience gained”. By that experience we always try to give advice to others that don’t ruin the life or wealth because i suffered a lot by doing this and that the way you are now doing. so don’t go that way….this path what i realized is a good path….so go in this…like this advice. Because a good human being like you (i think so -:) ] will not tolerate others suffering whether its stock market or in the social backwardness.

    When i suffered 4 times failure in prelims in UPSC and 3 times failure in Mains in UPSC exams i understood what went wrong where should one avoid the mistakes. So i often give advice to the candidates who asks me how to prepare? I tell them “How NOT to prepare for UPSC exams?” they just look at me…. you looser…get lost….

    So i decided no free advice to anyone regarding this. Because

    Free Advice = 0
    so, 100 times you Advice Freely
    the result is like this…. 100*0=0

    if it is 1 Lakh times, then its also ZERO.

    but the Pain Realized and Time Spent = -1

    so, when we advice them freely 100 times, the result is
    100*-1= (-100) minutes lost or units of pain got etc…..

    if you give 1 Lakh times advice freely then the PRTS= (-1 Lakh) Minutes or units of pain we suffer.

    (these are for just understanding purpose….i am not good at even elementary mathematics!!!)

    In Tamilnadu village side, if we met with genuine Saints or Prophets in Temple, if we ask about our future they will not say for free. Either they asks Re.1 as holy money or tell us do this thing here and there in the temple…like clean the floor or do kitchen work to make Annadhan to devotees.

    So free advice wont work. and finally its not acceptable by the paid customers like me who are genuine followers that you give the same thing to us and to the non customers also. so its frustrating. because its a business, isn’t it? correct me if i am wrong.
    Thank you sir.

    • Dilip Shaw March 18, 2016, 1:36 pm


      Wow what a comment.
      Free advice explained in mathematics. 🙂
      If you are comfortable please let me know what you do, as I do not believe you are not good at even elementary mathematics. 😉
      I like this:

      In Tamilnadu village side, if we met with genuine Saints or Prophets in Temple, if we ask about our future they will not say for free. Either they asks Re.1 as holy money or tell us do this thing here and there in the temple…like clean the floor or do kitchen work to make Annadhan to devotees.

      Perfect way of making sure they value their advice.
      Thanks for the superb comment.

      • RAGUNATHAN March 19, 2016, 2:32 pm

        Sir, im nobody… An ordinary man who lost not in lakhs but in thousands in stock market due to greed since 2004. Sometimes i get out of market and again enter to loss money…;) Last year only i came to know your services and without a second thought i joined. I read lot of literature in Tamil and English…inclined towards philosophy…. I’m continuously in morality debate in myself whether to trade in stock market or not because is it right to loot money from others which is lost by them particularly in F&O? But im still trading only one lot a month in strategy 1 because i could not justify myself whether it is right or wrong….

        Though some of my friends in the higher echelon of government in chattisgarh, Gujarat, TN, HP, AP as ias , IPS and IRS due to my small brain and little knowledge and as an easily giving up person i couldn’t shine anywhere in my life….. 😉

        and definitely you won’t believe I’m a clerk (LDC) in Govt of Tamil Nadu.

          Stock trading is a business. Do not get into the “morality” debate. When we trade derivatives we are all told that there is risk and money lost or made will be final. When everyone knows in advance that it is more or less a bet and are involved in this business then it is legally correct and morally also correct. Betting in foreign countries is legal – even in betting just money exchanges hands. There is no question of morality when both parties know well in advance that one will lose another will make.
          95% of business do not contribute directly to growth of economy – so morally they are all wrong? NO. For example your shopkeeper takes 100 from you and gives you back goods worth only 90 – so is he immoral?
          Your friends are doing good because they worked hard when it was required. You still have time in your hands and if you work hard too you can excel in life – BTW you are still better than many people without a government job.
          All The Best.

            Thanks for the valuable comment on my question sir, though i dont take it as advice because Advice=0 -;)
            yes the same thinking in my mind. if we take this type of view then no one will grow. even no business in the world. no commerce in the history.

            // For example your shopkeeper takes 100 from you and gives you back goods worth only 90 – so is he immoral?//

            though he took away 10 rs. as profit but that amount is too high for that goods, then the question arise is how much is too much? for a street vendor its too costly for a millionaire that’s nothing. so its like relativity, same place seems to be left for one and right for another.

            //BTW you are still better than many people without a government job.//
            yes of course, thank you sir -;)

    Elephants are not bothered by the dogs barking at them. They keep going there way. So, let the dogs keep on barking. You continue on your chosen path.

    Keep it up.

    • Dilip Shaw March 18, 2016, 1:40 pm


      🙂 Haha – lets not think that way, but yes sure I will keep educating.

      Thanks for the motivation.

    Hi Dilip,

    Please read this Dilip – I value your emails.

    I saw your mail and went through your post. I know how disheartening it can be when you put in so much time and effort and people don’t value it.

    However, I must tell you that there are people like me who save each and every single mail you send out.

    Ever since I stumbled upon your site I have subscribed and saved every single mail of yours.

    In our last communication you said that you need atleast Rs. 80000/- for your stratergy to be applied. I do not have that money as I work for a small call centre. But that did not bother me. I told you that I would save up and take up the course.

    I am still saving every month and just counting the days when I can take up your course. Until then every piece of advise that you share, I paper trade with.

    Please do not take a drastic step of not sharing advise because people like me who look forward to your mails and outlook on the market will be impacted.

    This is my humble request. Again the decision is solely your.


    • Dilip Shaw March 18, 2016, 3:48 pm

      Hi Suraj,

      Thanks for letting me know you value my advice.

      I am only stopping FREE DIRECT TIPS – which means direct advice on which stocks or options to buy or sell. Rest educating investors through the site WILL CONTINUE.

      I was doing a mistake of giving fish to eat to people – I would rather teach how to catch a fish.

      I hope you get the difference. Its much better than directly helping people when all they do is ignore and they learn nothing out of it.

      Yes do my course only when you can trade them.


  • Binoi Cherian March 18, 2016, 9:36 pm

    Hey Dilip, Cool it man, these things keeps happening. You are a good trader! Don’t send out advises through the blog. Just send what you are doing on a daily basis with your own course and the money you are making. That is enough. I wish you success to grow this blog from 7000+ to a million. Keep heart and things will happen. All the best. Cheers,

    • Dilip Shaw March 19, 2016, 1:05 pm


      Thanks for the wishes. Disclosing my personal profits or losses to thousands is not correct since its personal. Yeah will keep working hard. Thanks again.

  • Ananthakrishnan March 18, 2016, 10:19 pm

    Hi Dilip,

    It’s ok to give free advice. The catch is if you give when not asked you should learn to stomach free thoughts back to you.

    I am happy that you have stopped giving free advice. It’s good for business anyways and builds credibility.

    But your blog was so emotional !!! Relax and enjoy your weekend. You are doing a great job.


    • Dilip Shaw March 22, 2016, 3:38 pm

      >> The catch is if you give when not asked you should learn to stomach free thoughts back to you.
      Very true … however I thought this will help my subscribers make money but boy I was wrong.. some thought I am plain lying and some thought I am showing off.. Anyways whatever happens, happens for good. I am happy I can now help my paid subscribers. Thanks and Cheers to you too.

    Hello Dilip,
    I read your email and feel very bad. Since the beginning when I received your e emails I continuously read all your email. But I don’t replay as I have not practice of writing. So at first I sorry for that. And I also made you to know that I am not subscriber of your course.

    I am trading in market since I am student .I try all market ie equity, commodity, currency, by last I decided equity is best for trading than trading in fno segment. I lost lot of money.
    At end I turn towards you to get education, knowledge. I attended one course where some points will get for intraday trade. But even I am not success in this market.

    When I see your email about hedging trade especially in the money option I am very attracted and I try some setup also and see how this save my account when my trade go wrong. Through I am not get profit either but I fell very thankful to you for your these email’s.
    I thought of writing email to you after getting regular income in share market as I trade for living type trader. And I have given last chance to myself for being in this market. If I fail I may forced my self for other kind of business as I am from business family.

    With this email you don’t think I am forcing you to give free tip’s but sharing knowledge always makes man proud.

    I am in this market for a Long, I always await for your valuable articles.

    Thanking You.

    • Dilip Shaw March 22, 2016, 3:13 pm

      Thanks Vijay to let me know you find my advice valuable. Hope you will keep reading my emails in future too. Whatever you do, please trade safe.

    • Dilip Shaw March 22, 2016, 2:05 pm

      Cheers 🙂

  • Dilip Shaw March 22, 2016, 5:15 pm
