What To Trade During Stable Stock Markets


Learn what to trade when the stock markets are stable and not much move is expected in future.

Since last few days stock markets Nifty is stable and not moving much.

Here is what may happen to world markets:

  • Stock markets waiting for news for, in which business sectors Donald Trump will focus more. It is obvious investments will start in those sectors. Please keep a watch on Trump policies and news.
  • Dollar getting stronger is a worry for Asian markets, but since US markets are on a roll Asian markets are not falling much. But for sure it will rise depending on what Trump says after taking over.

    Do not forget that like any country America also needs business to survive, so I do not think Trump can do anything to give a negative impact on doing business with USA. He himself is a business man, for sure he will try something good.

  • Demonetization effect has still not gone away. News is already in that in December quarter India’s internet companies were not able to perform well. But for certain this will have a temporary effect till end January. Things will improve from February 2017 onward.

All of the above suggest one thing – stock markets in India will be stable. They may either fall down a bit or go up a bit, but it will be a slow move in a stable way. A swift fall or rise will only come after Trump business policies get clear. This will be known only after Trump resumes office on 20th January 2017.

There is a high chance he will definitely give good singles as far as doing business with US is concerned. Once this is known investors will come in and markets will move up.

What you can do during times when stock markets are down but stable?

1. Keep buying stocks of good companies for the long term.

2. If you are an Option trader keep trading non-directional strategies as finding direction in these stable conditions is very hard. Directional traders’ life is going to be very difficult for the next few days or months. My course offers well researched properly hedged non-directional strategies.

3. If you are a naked future trader, this is not the correct time to trade naked futures. You are playing with fire. Even if you want to trade please trade with proper hedging. There is a strategy in my course which teaches to hedge futures with options in the correct way.

Speculative trading is one of the worst ways to trade the stock markets and stable times is even more dangerous. If you are just an equity trader, please hold the stocks and sell them when they are in good profit.
