Still making highs every day, I think 2018 is big bull year. Looking for 4 digit in nifty may wipe out capital.

From : Kumar A at 11:13 PM - Jul 15, 2018 ( about a month ago)

So tomorrow we will break all time high. These days there is no point in looking for shorts, index is manipulated by few shares and all shorters dreams to earn money will be vanished by keeping  the index up.

Trading minor trend needs a full time job.  A major move can make a big impact on account if on wrong side.

The trader who can control risk and willing to take series of losses in exchange for a few traders with profits which are far greater than losses. Traders who can not handle losses should not trade the minor trends.

BUY VEDL around 240-242 for TGT 265. SL 232. Time Period by 4 to 5 days


From: kumar A at 10:53 AM - Jun 13, 2017( )

Entry given. Now wait for TGT , exit if SL EXIT.

From: kumar A at 03:36 PM - Jun 13, 2017( )

Nearing SL. If traded below 232 for 15 mins exit with Loss.

From: kumar A at 07:11 AM - Jun 15, 2017( )

SL hitting chances are more. Wait for close below 232 in 15 minutes candle. Today nifty

may close green 

From: kumar A at 10:25 AM - Jun 15, 2017( )

price and time is important while taking trade. Nifty is no mood to go down immediately..  I think After june 20 only it will start . 50 to 100 is not a down trend

From: kumar A at 10:26 AM - Jun 16, 2017( )

Trade is still active will closed on Tueday as per Time factor 

From: kumar A at 09:59 AM - Jun 19, 2017( )

VEDL 233 may become a new bottome if it closed green today. Important to cross and close above 245 to change the trend to up.

From: kumar A at 02:56 PM - Jun 22, 2017( )

Call closed with loss of 4 rs. 238 in the morning. Reason didn't perform as per timeperiod. VEDL IF BREAKS 247 can go up to 275

From: kumar A at 02:57 PM - Jun 22, 2017( )

Loss of 4000, as I took 1000 shares 


From: kumar A at 02:29 PM - Jun 29, 2017( )

VEDL reached 251 today, show the system needs imrpovisions to handle whipsaws

From: kumar A at 09:30 PM - Jul 08, 2017( )

VEDL almost tried touched the tgt we discussed .. This call proves that identifying trend and time when it hit is important. Most people will loss money due to jumping to the trade too early like this.

New Thread: Steps to become a professional trader.

Kumar A at 04:47 PM - May 01, 2017 ( )

I searched to find the original source of this article but have not been able to locate it. This is from an anonymous source and has been shared on many websites online over and over. If anyone knows who wrote it I will be happy to link this to the original author. I do think this is an important share to aspiring traders:

“This was circulating on the internet for a while, I made a copy of it back in 07 when i started trading, since then it has been republished by Charles Kirk. Trading has been a heck of a journey for me. I came in for the money at first and now after all these years I’m still in but my motives have changed, I’m in for the game. Trading has been a long journey of self discovery for me, something I never even thought I would have to go through. – Yvan Byeajee

5 steps to becoming a professional trader

Step One: Unconscious Incompetence

This is the first step you take when starting to look into trading. You know that it is a good way of making money because you’ve heard so many things about it and heard of so many millionaires. Unfortunately, just like when you first desire to drive a car you think it will be easy – after all, how hard can it be? Price either moves up or down – what’s the big secret to that then – let’s get cracking!

Unfortunately, just as when you first take your place in front of a steering wheel you find very quickly that you haven’t got the first damn clue about what you’re trying to do. You take lots of trades and lots of risks. When you enter a trade, it turns against you, so you reverse and it turns again, and again, and again. You may have initial success and that’s even worse because it tells your brain that this really is simple and you start to risk more money. You try to turn around your losses by doubling up every time you trade. Sometimes you’ll get away with it but more often than not you will come away scathed and bruised. You are totally oblivious to your incompetence at trading.

Step Two – Conscious Incompetence

Step two is where you realize that there is more work involved in trading and that you might actually have to work a few things out. You consciously realize that you are an incompetent trader – you don’t have the skills or the insight to turn a regular profit.

You now set about buying trading systems and e-books galore, read websites based everywhere from USA to the Ukraine and begin your search for the holy grail. During this time you will be a system nomad – you will flick from method to method day by day and week by week never sticking with one long enough to actually see if it does work. Every time you come upon a new indicator you’ll be ecstatic that this is the one that will make all the difference.
You will test out automated systems, you’ll play with moving averages, Fibonacci lines, support & resistance, pivots, fractals, divergences, DMI, ADX, and a hundred other things all in the vein hope that your ‘magic system’ starts today. You will also become a top and bottom picker, trying to find the exact point of reversal with your indicators and you’ll find yourself chasing losing trades and even adding to them because you are so sure you are right.

You’ll go into the live chat room and see other traders making profits and you want to know why it’s not you – you’ll ask a million questions, some of which are so dumb that looking back you feel a bit silly. You’ll then reach the point where you think all the ones who say they are making profits are all liars – they can’t be making that amount because you’ve studied and you don’t make that, you know as much as they do and they must be lying. But they’re in there day after day and their account just grows whilst yours falls.

You will be like a teenager – the traders that make money will freely give you advice but, you’re stubborn and think that you know best – you take no notice and over trade your account even though everyone says you are mad to but you know better. You’ll consider following the calls that others make but even then it won’t work so you try paying for signals from someone else – they don’t work for you either.
You might even approach a guru or someone on a chat board who promises to make you into a trader (usually for a fee of course). Whether the guru is good or not you won’t win because there is no replacement for screen time and you still think you know best.
This step can last ages and ages – in fact in reality talking with other traders as well as personal experience confirms that it can easily last well over a year and more nearer to three years.

This is also the step when you are most likely to give up through sheer frustration. Around 60% of new traders quit in the first 3 months – they give up and this is good – think about it – if trading was easy we would all be millionaires. Another 20% keep going for a year and then in desperation take risks guaranteed to blow their account which of course it does.

What may surprise you is that of the remaining 20% all of them will last around 3 years and they will think they are safe in the water but even at 3 years only a further 5-10% will continue and go on to actually make money consistently.

By the way – these are real figures, not just some I’ve picked out of my head – so when you get to 3 years in the game don’t think it is plain sailing from there!
I’ve had many people argue with me about these timescales – funny enough none of them have been trading for more than 3 years – if you think you know better – then ask on a board for someone who’s been trading 5 years and ask them how long it takes to become fully 100% proficient. Sure I guess there will be exceptions to the rule – but I haven’t met any yet.
Eventually you do begin to come out of this phase. You’ve probably committed more time and money than you ever thought you would, lost 2 or 3 loaded accounts and all but given up maybe 3 or 4 times but now it is in your blood. One day – in a split second moment you will enter stage 3.

Step 3 – The Eureka Moment

Towards the end of stage two you begin to realize that it’s not the system that is making the difference. You realize that it is actually possible to make money with a simple moving average and nothing else IF you can get your head and money management right. You start to read books on the psychology of trading and identify with the characters portrayed in those books and finally comes the eureka moment.

This eureka moment causes a new connection to be made in your brain. You suddenly realize that neither you, nor anyone else can accurately predict what the market will do in the next ten seconds, never mind the next 20 minutes. Because of this revelation you stop taking any notice of what anyone thinks – what this news item will do, and what that event will do to the markets. You become an individual with your own method of trading. You start to work just one system that you mold to your own way of trading, you’re starting to get happy and you define your risk threshold.

You start to take every trade that your ‘edge’ shows has a good probability of winning with. When the trade turns bad you don’t get angry or even because you know in your head that as you couldn’t possibly predict it it isn’t your fault – as soon as you realize that the trade is bad you close it. The next trade or the one after it or the one after that will have higher odds of success because you know your system works. You stop looking at trading results from a trade-to-trade perspective and start to look at weekly figures knowing that one bad trade does not a poor system make.
You have realized in an instant that the trading game is about one thing – consistency of your ‘edge’ and your discipline to take all the trades no matter what as you know the probabilities stack in your favor.

You learn about proper money management and leverage – risk of account etc. – and this time it actually soaks in and you think back to those who advised the same thing a year ago with a smile. You weren’t ready then but you are now. The eureka moment came the moment that you truly accepted that you cannot predict the market.

Step 4 – Conscious Competence

You are making trades whenever your system tells you to. You take losses just as easily as you take wins. You now let your winners run to their conclusion fully accepting the risk and knowing that your system makes more money than it loses and when you’re on a loser you close it swiftly with little pain to your account.

You are now at a point where at a minimum you break even – day in day out. You will have weeks where you make big money and other weeks where you lose big money – but overall you are breaking even and not losing money anymore. You are now conscious of the fact that you are making calls that are generally good and you are getting respect from other traders as you chat the day away. You still have to work at it and think about your trades but as this continues you begin to make more money than you lose consistently.

You’ll start the day on a big win, take a big loss and have no feelings that you’ve given those profits back because you know that it will come back again. You will slowly begin to make consistent profits week in and week out.

Step Five – Unconscious Competence

Now we’re cooking – just like driving a car, every day you get in your seat and trade. You do everything now on an unconscious level. You are running on autopilot. You start to pick the really big trades and getting big profits in a day doesn’t make you any more excited that getting none. You see the newbies in the forum shouting ‘go market go’ as if they are urging on a horse to win in the grand national and you see yourself – but many years ago now. This is trading utopia – you have mastered your emotions and you are now a trader with a rapidly growing account.

You’re a star in the trading chat room and people listen to what you say. You recognize yourself in their questions from about two years ago. You pass on your advice but you know most of it is futile because they’re teenagers – some of them will get to where you are – some will do it fast and others will be slower – literally dozens and dozens will never get past stage two, but a few will.

Trading is no longer exciting – in fact it’s probably boring you to pieces – like everything in life when you get good at it or do it for your job – it gets boring – you’re doing your job and that’s that.

Finally you grow out of the chat rooms and find a few choice people who you converse with about the markets without being
influenced at all. All the time you are honing your methods to extract the maximum profit from the market without increasing risk. Your method of trading doesn’t change – it just gets better – you now have what women call ‘intuition.’ You can now say with your head held high “I’m a trader” but to be honest you don’t even bother telling anyone – it’s a job like any other.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this journey into a traders mind and that hopefully you’ve identified with some points in here.
Remember that only 5% will actually make it – but the reason for that isn’t ability, its staying power and the ability to change your perceptions and paradigms as new information comes available. The losers are those who wanted to ‘get rich quick’ but approached the market and within 6 months put on a pair of blinkers so they couldn’t see the obvious – a kind of “this is the way I see it and that’s that” scenario – refusing to assimilate new information that changes that perception.

I’m happy to tell you that the reason I started trading was because of the ‘get rich quick’ mindset. Just that now I see it as ‘get rich slow.’ If you’re thinking about giving up I have one piece of advice for you ….

Ask yourself the question “How many years would you go to college if you knew for a fact that there was a million dollars a year job at the end of it?”
Take care and good trading to you all. – Anonymous

Dear Traders

o       You might have subscribed to many Analyst giving Stock Trading Tips. They claim that their clients are earning huge money.
o       You might have attended so many seminars and listened to lectures on various topics like Fibonacci numbers, pivot points, Elliot waves, dow theory, gann theory etc. etc.
o       You might have bought and read so many e-books, CDs and DVDs showing their extra ordinary results.
o       You might have got free tips from your friends, from your brokers, from TV channels, from newspapers etc. etc.
But the net result is a zero
Ohh…! not only zero, but a Big Big Zeeero….

 Imagine you are losing most of your hard earned money in the stock market……


Imagine how you feel, if you are losing even your hard earned savings every day step by step in stock   market…..

At last you are frustrated and decided to quit stock market.
But mind well......

Quitters never win….
Firstly, I would advise you to examine yourself about your own trading, examine the reasons why you are losing in trading.
Mostly you enter either buy or sell trade as per the tips you have subscribed for or from your friends or broker or from TV channels or newspapers, but never follow the tips in full and final way. What I mean to say you hardly use the given stop loss order for the tips got. Many a times you keep psychological stop loss means determine to cut your trade if the stop loss level arrives, but when the price moves to that stop loss level, you change your decision and determine your own stop loss level for that particular trade.
Many a times you enter a trade for intra day, but when price moves against your expectations not keeping stop loss, you change the term of your trade and become positional trader for that trade, and ultimately you become investor for that stock. And whenever price moves just a little bit higher or below your entry level, you forget your target set at the time of entering the trade, and you exit from the trade just to release your funds, earning minor profit. Again you enter for intraday trade and do the same mistakes very often. This process of changing from intra day trader to investor and from investor to intraday trader continues for a long time. Ultimately you cannot do your intra day trading nor positional trading efficiently due to lack of enough liquidity of funds.
Some times after entering into a trade without using stop loss tool, price moves against your expectations for such a longer period of time that you tired with that trade and cut the trade in a heavy loss.
If you use your stop loss tool without considering the daily volatility of the market, naturally it will hit very often resulting into losses.
Many a times, you enter into a long trade in script A without making any plan for that trade, and when price moves against your expectations, and at the same time you find some another script B with rising price, you are tempted to cut your previous trade in loss and enter into another long trade in the script B. But unfortunately what happens, you enter into long trade in script B at such a higher level that as soon as you enter in it, its price starts declining……again you find yourself in losing trade. You again cut your that trade making loss….loss and nothing but loss….And this continues for many a times.
Why does this happen to you….?
It is only and only due to lack of knowledge of technical analysis. If you are aware of resistance and support levels of that particular script, you may not have gone for a long trade at a higher price, instead wait for level to come to enter into a trade.
In each market, price is determined by the buyers (the bulls) and sellers (the bears). If there are more buyers than the sellers, price tends to go up and if the sellers dominate the market, the price tends to go down. But in case of intra day, it is impossible to know who is going to rule the market for that particular day, whether bulls or bears. And lack of this knowledge leads you to losses.
In short, you earn little & little, but lose more & more, this practice ultimately reduces your capital to a great extent.
Just watch the following chart, and ask yourself, whether you are practicing this or not…..?

In fact, in case of intra day trading system, profit can be earned only if you have enough capacity to judge the intraday market trends. And you have sufficient positioning capacity. Intra day trading in smaller quantity with expectations to make huge profits is not possible at all. And intra day trading in bigger quantity involves huge risk. This is so because in case of intra day trading you have to collect little little profits and hence quantity has to be kept bigger, smaller quantity gives you profits, but in total it will look too much small and negligible considering your expectations.  In short, to earn to the level of expectations, one is required to enter in to intra day trade in big quantity with big risk involvement.
If you really want to earn huge profits with limited capital requirements, with limited risk involvement, you must be equipped with
-        an efficient trading system,
-        an efficient money management
-        an efficient trading psychology.
And all these three components are too much important that if you are missing any one, you may have to face struggle in trading.
In stock market, trades can be done intra day or positional. If you are capable of devoting enough time to sit before the terminal, if you are capable of trading with right positioning, if you are capable of judging daily market trends efficiently, then and then you should accept intra day trading system, otherwise should remain positional trader. All the above mentioned three components can be easily adopted, if you remain positional trader.
Big big money can be made with low risk involvement, with limited amount of investment only in case of positional trading system, and more particularly in swing trading system having enough knowledge of technical analysis.

There are four stages that a trader passes through.
1) You don't know; What you don't know.
2)You know ; What you don't know.
3)You know ; That you don't know.
4)You know it; you mastered it.
1)You don't know ; what you don't know
Here we will take an example to illustrate this . You are a new trader/ car driver. On a rainy night, when roads where clear you made a 100 mile journey in just 20 minutes with a top speed of 150 mph ( just imagine please. don't calculate).
This is the stage where you don't know , What all risk that where there . But the time was good and you made it for that one particular drive.
2)You know ; What you don't know
Next morning in newspaper you read an article about a car crash. This crash occurred in the same route that you did the driving last night. Infact this car crashed say 15 minutes after you passed that point. It skidded off the road and fell off the bridge.
Yea..! Now you know, what you don't know. Next time you will never hit 150 mps , or drive within twenty minutes. Likewise in trading you won't take a huge bet after watching an unexpected event screw a trade.
3)You know ; That you don't know
You started discussing about this to everyone. Every guy pitched in his experience of rash driving. You came to know about mud on road issue, sharp turns, A animal could stand in middle of road etc. NOw you are very well aware of risk involved in reaching 150 mphs .
Trading news affects you. What obama said, how fed reacted all those tiny things remind you all potential reversals in market or risks. At this stage you are more focused in knowing more about risk and , what all things that could go wrong.
4)You know it; you mastered it.
From being a novice first time driver, now you are an experienced driver with 10 years of experience. Hell there is no way you will take that stupid "risk" of driving so fast ever again.
Likewise the encouraging news, the optimism that you had at beginning has been over shadowed by risk and fear of loss. You have mastered every risk scenario so well that, you wont sit in profit for long. Every slight correction will bring your heart to mouth and shake your confirm believe of holding the position till target meets. Every potential trade will be followed by analysis paralysis. Too much risk analysis and too little patience.
Oh well, only difference between driving and trading is.....
" In driving with years of experience , probability of crashing your car will reduce. In trading, you crash your account balance eventually and repeatedly !! "

Trade Blunders – Crimes of Thinking


consider the following list of blunders, consider how much money you've lost or failed to make as a result of these "crimes of thinking".

* There's too much risk. This is basically an excuse for fear. It's been said that "you don't know how deep a hole is until you stand in it". This applies to the risk of trading as well. If it's the degree of the money at risk that's bothering you then there are many ways in which this problem may be resolved. Risk evaluation is an intangible. If intangibles scare you then don't drive a car. If you really think about what could happen to you on an expressway then you'll not want to drive. If you think about the risk of trading then you won't trade.

* I don't feel good about this trade- it scares me. Here's a favorite cop out on the list of excuses. Assuming that your signal to trade came from a computer or from a mechanical trading system then your excuse is without merit. Your computer had no idea that you don’t like the trade. Nor does the computer care about your feelings. Following feelings or “the force” may have been good for Luke Sykwalker, but it's totally bogus approach when signals come from a mechanical system or a computer.

* The trade looks good but. . . Here's a worthless bit of reasoning. The signal looks good but. . . BUT WHAT? You want to get in cheaper . . . you want to wait for a pullback . . . you want more confirmation . . . you want to wait for a report . . . you want to wait for the next signal. . . . You want to talk to your broker first. . . EXCUSES . . . all poor excuses, which are the * child, of what you think is good thinking! You might as well wait to ask your dead grandfather if the trade's good.

* Let's see how the market opens before I enter my order . . . let's check it after the first hour of trading . . . lets put in an order below the market...above the market. Here’s an excuse I’ve used hundreds of times. IT’S ALL B.S. I TELL YOU! These are also fatherless children of the crime, which comes from too much thinking. Stock trading is very much a game of stimulus and response. The signal is your stimulus and you must make the proper response.

* It just doesn't look right - and last, but by no means less absurd is the "it just doesn't look right" excuse. This one comes from truly deep thought. It comes from an analysis of the economy, trends, possibly even volume and open interest, and of course, from the input of too many traders and advisors. It you want to get totally confused and frozen into inaction think about -all the facts and opinions, evaluate them all, throw them into the hopper and decide that you can't decide because something doesn't seem right. Here's the real thinking traders excuse. And it's another totally worthless one.

Try a little experiment. Make a commitment to take the next ten trades without thinking about them. After you've done so evaluate your results. See how you've done. See how you feel. Here's what I think you'll find: you've spent less valuable time on meaningless thought; you've made the trades you were supposed to make; you’ll feel better about yourself-more confident and more secure; and you've probably made money as well.

In a bull market you’re not as smart as you think you are and in a bear market you’re not as dumb as you think you are.

The problem is that fear and greed don’t always allow us to come to these conclusions in the moment — we tend to default to the opposite.

As markets continue to fall this year many investors are likely beginning to question their own intelligence just as people in 2013-14 were feeling pretty good about how brilliant they were in a rising market. Along these same lines, here’s a quick comparison of some of the different feelings and perspectives investors have depending on which kind of market we happen to be in:

Bull Markets: Fear of missing out.
Bear Markets: Fear of being in.

Bull Markets: Everything I buy is going up — I’m a genius.
Bear Markets: Everything I buy is going down — I’m an idiot.

Bull Markets: See, fundamentals always win out.
Bear Markets: See, technicals and sentiment rule the markets.

Bull Markets: I knew I should have had more of my portfolio in stocks.
Bear Markets: I knew I should have had more of my portfolio in bonds.

Bull Markets: That guy’s been calling for a crash for years — he’s an idiot.
Bear Markets: That guy just called the crash — he’s a genius.

Bull Markets: I want to be a long-term buy and hold investor.
Bear Markets: I want to be a short-term trader.

Bull Markets: I’m glad I was buying during the last market crash.
Bear Markets: Never try to catch a falling knife.

Bull Markets: I’ll sit tight when the market falls.
Bear Markets: Dear Lord, get me out of stocks NOW!

Bull Markets: Time to buy stocks?
Bear Markets: Time to sell stocks?

Bull Markets: Warren Buffett is washed up.
Bear Markets: Wait, Buffett is buying here?

Bull Markets: Buy & hold works.
Bear Markets: Buy & hold is dead.

Bull Markets: I’ll be greedy when other are fearful.
Bear Markets: I lied — I’m fearful when other are fearful.

Bull Markets: Buy the dip.
Bear Markets: Sell the rip.

Bull Markets: Why didn’t I invest earlier in my life?
Bear Markets: I’ll never invest again.

Bull Markets: Why would I want to diversify?
Bear Markets: Why was I so concentrated?

Bull Markets: I’m just waiting for a healthy correction to put more money to work.
Bear Markets: This market action is not healthy at all.

Bull Markets: Don’t worry, we’ll outperform during the next downturn.
Bear Markets: Don’t worry, we’ll outperform when the market turns around.

Bull Markets: It feels like markets will never fall again.
Bear Markets: It feels like markets will never rise again.

Most people that we call day traders look at the market which strictly technical analysis. They are normally classified into three different types of traders; scalpers, intraday traders, and swing traders.  All three types of professional day traders are looking to do the same thing, make a profit based on a different in value. The only difference between the three is the amount of time they are involved in positions.

Scalper Traders

Professional day traders that make money in the stock market with high frequency and lower profit are called scalpers. The goal is to take advantage of small inconsistencies in the market in addition to quick movements (changes in value in a matter of seconds or minutes).

A scalper may only be in a position for five or 10 seconds or possibly a minute. A scalper also tends to place a higher frequency of trades and as their profit is normally lower per trade.   A higher frequency of positions (entering and exiting trades) is needed in order to make higher profits.

Types of day traders

Types of day traders

Intraday Traders

Professional day traders that make money in the stock market on a daily basis are considered intraday traders. An intraday trader never holds a position overnight hence the term “intra-day”. Intraday traders are typically in positions from within a few minutes to possibly a few hours.  Intraday traders are typically not as high frequency as scalpers but due trade more often than swing traders.

I would consider myself an intraday trader as I normally trade between an hour or two a day with TheDayTradingAcademy.com. Most of our traders make their money within an hour or two a day. Our live classes are normally a few hours as well since the best activity in the markets come within the first few hours.

Swing traders

Professional day traders that make their money swing trading involves a much longer period of time. A swing trader uses fundamental or technical analysis but stays in trades over a few days or even weeks. To compare the differences between a scalper or intraday trader, a swing trader may be in a position for a few days or weeks whereas an intraday trader never holds a position overnight.

This swing trader term infers that someone plays the swings in the stock market rather than the quicker movements.

There are also much longer term day traders called position traders which hold trades for several weeks or even months.  We won’t highlight these kinds of traders on today’s post.


The whole basis of a professional trade day trader making money in the stock market involves accurately gauging the value of a stock.  A stock of a company is in essence the price at which the general public says it’s worth.

Since the financial system has changed it has become more complex and there are more investment vehicles than just stocks to invest in. These can be stocks, futures, options, and even forex (currency fluctuations).  The basic premise of making money in the stock market is simple, gauging the value of something and making a profit when your estimation was correct

How to make profit from Intraday trade.
The Golden rule of intraday trade is ride with the trend. Hence the first step to make profit in intraday trade is to identify the stock. Intraday charts are the best way to identify stocks for trading intraday.  Also one should make a good home work before entering in intraday trade.  Home work means, study the historical charts and find out the upward or downward moving stocks. Then see the previous days intraday chart.  Find out the support and resistance levels. The better strategy will be buy at previous days support level and short at previous days resistance levels. Also shorting below support level and buying above resistance level are good ideas.
Keeping Stop loss
Keeping stop loss is very important for intraday trade. Otherwise one will loose heavily. Where to keep stop loss is a very important question. Again previous days intraday charts will help. If one shorted in a stock, keep stop loss at previous days high or days high. Also if bought, keep stop loss at previous days lows, or days lows. Another thing to remember is keep trailing stop loss and revise stop loss when one is in profit. Instead of booking profit, one can keep stop loss for profit and can revise according to upward movement.  Normally this will help a lot in intraday trade.
Panic and Greedy
The two things to avoid in stock market and particularly in intraday trade is panic and greedy.  When one enters in a trade and goes in opposite direction, don’t be panic. Wait some time, keep strict stop loss. If  stop loss triggers, don’t enter again.  Wait some time and relax, watch the market trend and enter in some other stocks.  Another thing to avoid is greediness.  Some people will not book profit and wait for more and more profit. But such people will end up in loss only.  In intraday trade book profit in every highs. Wait for a dip and enter again if trend sustains.
Timing is important for successful Intraday trade
The best time to enter for intraday trade is after 20 to 30 minutes when the market opens. Some people will jump in the market at the opening bell itself. It is risky always. Watch the market in the early trades and find out the trend. First enter in some small quantity, say 25% of the quantity one is intended to buy.  Then buy more in the next 10 to 15 minutes. The trend observed is intraday trading is stocks will shoot up till after 45 to 1 hour when the market opens.  This is the best time to book profit. Once booked profit in a particular stock, better wait some time and watch the next movement and enter accordingly.

Lack of a plan

A trading business plan will make you accountable for your actions. Many traders do not want to put together a plan because they do not want to admit to themselves that they are working with a strategy that does not work. They also do not want to feel accountable to their strategy. They want to be master traders who follow intuition/discretion before they prove they can follow their technical strategy.

Until you have a plan, you will not reap the greatest rewards from your strategy. You will not be able to fully understand what needs to be adjusted and transformed.

From: kumar A at 09:26 PM - Apr 06, 2016( )

We all focus a lot of attention, perhaps too much attention, on where to buy and sell a market, on where to enter trades. Today, let’s spend some time looking at the other side: where are you getting out?

Some categories are useful here, and they are not complicated. First, we have exiting at a loss, or at a profit. (This is not necessarily the same as saying exiting on a stop or at a profit, because a (trailing) stop can often be a profit-taking technique.) Both of these can then be divided into two more categories: Exiting at the initial loss or a reduced loss, and Profit taking against a stop or at a limit. Let’s spend a few moments thinking about each of these.

Initial stops

The most important think about initial stops is that you have one. Though so many trading axioms and sayings do not apply universally, one that does is “know where you’re getting out before you get in.” For every trade, you should have a clearly defined maximum loss, and you should work hard to make sure that loss is never exceeded. In practice, bad things will happen. You will have the (hopefully rare) experience of a nasty gap beyond your stop, and sometimes will see losses that are whole number multiples of your initial trade risk. (I remember one lovely -4.5x loss in YHOO years ago. Though these events are rare, they are also a good reminder of we do not, for instance, risk 10% of our accounts on a trade. A 45% loss on a single trade would be a disaster, but 4.5x a reasonable risk (1% – 2%) is merely annoying.)

Initial stop placement is an art in itself, but, in general, I think too much of the material on the internet probably uses stops that are too tight. I’ve never seen anyone trade successfully with stops that are a few ticks wide. For me, initial stops usually end up somewhere around 3-4 ATRs from the entry. These stops are wide enough that many traders find them uncomfortable, but simply reducing position size to manage the nominal loss is an obvious solution. Taking losses is perhaps the most important thing you will do as a trader, so do it well and do it properly.

partial profits

Reduced stops

We have defined that initial “never to be exceeded” (ideally) stop at trade entry, but many traders find it effective to move that stop rather quickly. Another possibility to consider is the time stop, in which we take steps to limit the position risk if the trade does not move in some defined time. There are many possibilities here, ranging from tightening the stop, to reducing the position, to exiting completely.

I have made a good case for not reducing the position at a loss because it effectively “deleverages” your P&L in the “loss space.” (See the chart above, which is drawn from pages 242 and 243 of my book.) Personally, I’ve found that simply taking whole, but smaller than initial, losses is more effective, but your experience may be different. A key point here is that all of this–entry, exit, position size, moving stops, taking targets, re entries, adding to positions, partial exits, etc.–all of this must work together. You change one piece, and the whole system will change. This is why some techniques may be effective in some settings but not in others.

To simplify, think of reduced stops as being moved when the trade does not immediately go far enough in your favor, and consider the use of time stops.

Profit targets

Profit targets are usually limit orders, as opposed to stops (which, not surprisingly, are usually stop orders.) In general, I find that it makes sense to have profit taking limit orders working in 24 hour markets, though we may not wish to work stops in the same after hours environments. People sometimes make mistakes or do silly things in afterhours, and I’m always happy to provide liquidity at the right prices. :)

There is a school of thought that says that all trades should simply be exited at profit targets, while there is a conflicting school that says we must let our winners run. How to reconcile these two approaches? I think the answer lies in trading style. For trend traders, we must let our profits run. As countertrend traders, we must take quick profits, usually at pre-defined areas. I have not found chart patterns or points to be any more effective than simply setting a target 1X my initial risk on the “other side” of the entry. Many people like to use pivots or trendlines, but I’ve executed well tens of thousands of trades (one of the advantages of spending years as short-term trader) and have simply not found these to be that effective. (For intraday traders, highs and lows of the day do deserve respect.) Consider the tradeoffs in simplifying your approach.

Trailing stops

Trailing stops can be managed in many ways, and I have found these to be very effective in many types of trading. We can trail at some volatility-adjusted measure, and there are even times we trail a very tight stop, effectively hoping to be taken out of the trade. This is a good problem to have: sometimes you may trail a stop at yesterday’s low, and be shocked as the trade grinds in your favor week after week–there’s nothing to be done in these cases but be forced to stay in the trade and make more money, but guard against hubris: many of the times this has happened to me I have been properly positioned into a climax move. When these moves end, they often end dramatically, so simply ring the register and step away from the market.

Putting it all together

This is certainly not an exhaustive list of all the possible ways to exit trades, but it will get you started in the right direction. I find that combining these techniques, using a pre-defined target for part of the trade, trailing the stop on the rest, and moving quickly to reduce initial risk on my rather wide initial stops, this works very well for swing trading the markets I follow. (

Consistency certainly matters, but consistently doing something that works will, not surprisingly, lead to consistently losing money. Make sure you have a well-designed system with an edge, and that the system is one you can follow in actual trading. Make sure you trade with appropriate size and risk, and that you monitor your performance accordingly. With these guidelines, you can be a few steps closer to developing your own system and approach to trading.

Don’t ever average losers.”

When a trade is going against you it means you are wrong. Adding to a loser just usually makes it bigger and your stress overwhelming.

“Never trade in situations where you don’t have control.”

Getting into a trade that you can’t easily get out of is a dangerous trade in itself. Liquidity risk, headline risk, and volatility can be dangerous when you are at their mercy.

“If you have a losing position that is making you uncomfortable, the solution is very simple, Get out.”

Many times exiting a trade is the easiest way to stop a losing trade from getting worse, managing stress, or freeing up capital for other uses. You can always get back in.

“Don’t be too concerned about where you got into a position.”

All that matters about your current positions is what you should do now based on the current price action not your cost basis or entry level.

“The most important rule of trading is to play great defense, not great offense.”

Trading offensively is trying to grow you capital while defense is protecting what you have. Winning trades are how many points you score and losing trades is how many points you give up to the other team. While offense is great for a show defense wins championships.

“Every day I assume every position I have is wrong.”

Mental flexibility is the ultimate effective habit of successful traders. Being willing to accept that a trade is wrong will lead you to cut losses fast, keep losers small, and lose your opinion not your money.

“Don’t have an ego. Always question yourself and your ability.”

Being over confident and arrogant leads to trading too big and staying on the wrong side of a trend for too long. Most account blow ups and ruin comes when a trader believes they are smarter than the markets and stay with their strong convictions after being proven wrong.

New Thread: Intraday Trading-Formulas and Rules

Kumar A at 02:20 PM - Mar 13, 2016 ( )

Intraday Trading is an alluring idea for traders to make quick money in stock markets. After all,who would not be interested in making some quick bucks in a matter of minutes or hours.That is the reason of its popularity in a section of traders.

Intraday trading or day trading, as the name is explanatory,is the process of taking long or short position in markets and squaring off (exiting)  that position before the close of the market on the same day.Intraday traders take the advantage of the movement in the price of the stock or the index during the trading session.Movement can be small or significant.Trade can be for minutes or hours.

Intraday traders have to take position in large quantities of a stock so that a small movement in the stock provides big gains.Consequently,the risk is also equally big in the event of adverse movement.

Taking position in  large quantity of a stock and squaring off the position immediately after the stock takes a small move in the favourable direction,is calledScalping.Scalpers take several trades during the day so that at the end of the day,the profits are significant.Online share trading has made Intraday Trading easy for day traders .

Now,what is the formula or technique for Intraday Trading?

Of course,there are some formulae which  are popular among the intraday traders like Pivot Point Formula or Fraction Theory.But intraday trading is not all about using formulas.When you are there in the middle,it is a totally different ball game altogether.

We shall explain here the above said formulas but the other things which are very important and need to be taken care of are –

  • Having a proper Mind-set and Psychology – Share Trading  for fun or hobby can be dangerous.Your approach should be very professional.You should be aware that you are risking your hard earned money and the risk starts the moment you enter the trade.Take trading as a business.
  • Control over the Emotions – Emotions like Greed and Fear are the biggest enemies of a trader.Markets don’t stand at a place.They keep on moving,up or down.So,don’t let the fear take you for ride if markets move in the opposite direction of what you were anticipating.You should be aware of your exit point in such case.On the other hand if trade starts turning profitable,exit the trade at your target price level.Stick to Stop loss and Targets to avoid Emotions in trading.
  • Having a Plan – Having a proper trading plan is an important part of trading in stock markets.You should be clear of the entry level,target level and stop loss of the particular stock which you are trading in.These levels are determined on the basis ofTechnical Analysis and the formulas.You need to stick to your plan to be a successful trader.Writing the plan on a paper is a good idea so that you stick to your Plan and don’t get swayed away by the market moves when you are in.Without any of these,it is going to be very tough.Intraday Trading Formula

Intraday Trading Formulae

Before going for Intraday Trading Formula,you should be aware of a real fact that more than 80% of the people loose money in trading.It means that no formula is perfect,otherwise that figure would had been other way around.

It is advisable to use these formulae after testing by paper trading or virtual trading to see which formula is best for you.Personally,I prefer Pivot Points as it gives best result when applied after identifying the trend in a stock.

Pivot Point Theory :- Taking previous day’s trading prices of a stock,we can calculate the support and resistance levels for that stock for the next day.Support and Resistance terms are self explanatory.A stock which is moving higher,may stop at resistance level and come back.Similarly,a stock moving lower,may stop at support level and reverse its move.After crossing first support or resistance level,stock is expected to move to next support or resistance level.

Coming to the Pivot Point Formula,we select a stock for Intraday Trading.For that stock,we need its previous day trading data- Intraday high price it touched ( H), intraday low price it touched ( L) and the previous day closing price ( C) for that stock.

         Add theses three values- H+L+C=X.

         Divide the total value by 3 :- X/3.

         Multiply it by 2 :- X/3*2=Y

This value Y is called the Pivot Point.Stock sustaining above Pivot Point is likely to move higher towards first resistance level and above that towards second resistance level.If stock continues to trade below the Pivot Point,it is likely to drift lower towards first support level and after that towards second support level.

Let’s calculate resistance and support levels.

First resistance level ( R1)  = It is the difference between the Pivot Point and the Intraday Low price.

         R1= Y-L

         R2=Y+( H-L)

First support level ( S1) = it is the difference between the Pivot Point and the Intraday High price.

         S1= Y-H

         S2= Y-(H-L).

Fraction Theory :-  This theory is also based on previous day price movements of a stock.

Add up high (H),low(L) and closing (C) price of previous day of the stock and multiply it by 0.67 (ratio of 2:3 as in pivot theory and it is constant)

         (H+L+C)* 0.67=Y

         Resistance (R1)= Y-L

         Support (S1)= Y-H

     Possible Buy (P.B.)= Y-C

Above possible buy (P.B.),buy the stock for resistance levels.

2652 Theory of intraday Trading :- 2652 Theory is based on previous day and present day High and Low prices of a stock.This theory has its own disadvantage that it makes you trade for gain of 0.5% while keeping your stop loss 1% lower.Your risk is double of your profit and using such strategy in day trading doesn’t make sense where probability of going wrong remains high.

You should also use technical analysis based on short-term charts for stock to know the trend and other indicators of technical analysis.Buy stock which show uptrend while look to short which are down trending.

The Intraday Chart with 15 Minute interval remains best for effective Intraday trade,though you may use any interval like 1 Minute,5 Minute or 10 Minute.Prefer to usetrend lines on Intraday Charts to take buy or sell call on your trade.5 Minute Bar Chart can be a good method to use trend lines for Intraday Trading.

Trading Rules for Intraday Trading to keep your Risk to the Minimum

1. Use surplus money – Trading should be done only with the spare money,the money you don’t need and can afford to loose.Trading,although very profitable,is associated with substantial risk.

2. Do proper research – Before taking trade,proper research should be done about the stock or the index ,using charts based technical analysis.It helps in determining important levels of the stock,strength and trend of the stock.

3. Use of Stop loss – This is very important part of any kind of trading.Most of the traders don’t use it,knowingly or unknowingly and end up taking huge losses.Stop loss helps cutting short the losses and keeping emotions out of trading thereby protecting capital.Remember,capital protection is more important than earning profits.Profit earning opportunities keep on arising in the markets which you can use if keep your capital protected.

4. Don’t overtrade – Overtrading is suicidal.More trades become difficult to manage.So trade only that quantity you are comfortable with.Keep number of trades limited to 2-3.If one trade gave you sufficient profit,better close the system and do some other work or relax.Choose your trades on the basis of Risk Reward Ratio.

5. Be disciplined – This is the major quality of the successful traders.Avoiding overtrading,not fighting against the trend and cutting short losses and keeping fear and greed emotions out of the trading are some important steps.

6. Follow the Trend – To have a higher success rate in Intraday Trading,always remember ‘Trend is your Friend’.So,always follow the trend and trade in that direction only.In up trending markets,select stocks which are strong on charts and have long positions.In down trending markets,select the weaker stocks and short them.Never trade against the trend.The advantage of trading with the trend is that even if you take a wrong call,you will not suffer big losses.

7. Liquidity – Always try to trade in highly liquid shares.Liquidity is the volume of shares traded.In liquid stocks,it is easy to enter and exit the trade and you enter or exit the trade near the last traded price.

8. Profit taking – Exit Strategy is really important.Take your profits and get out of the market when your target are achieved.Letting the profits run beyond targets leads to greed which is dangerous for trading.You never know when the market will turn around and throw you in losses after eating all the profit.

Cutting losses is also important part of successful trading.Exit your position if market is not going the way you anticipated.Don’t be stubborn and let the market do what it wants to do.

Camarilla pivot point formula is the refined form of existing classic pivot point formula.  The Camarilla method was developed by Nick Stott who was a very successful bond trader. What makes it better is the use of Fibonacci numbers in calculation of levels.  Below is the quote of famous trader Nick Stott

Everyone asks me that. When I first started trading, I thought (as a lot of people do!) that the markets were controlled by a secret ‘insiders club’ of powerful organizations who manipulated prices for their own benefit. I remember that at the time I was smugly sure that this was so, and was excited to be joining (as I then thought!) this secret ‘cabal’. Of course, as I learned more about the markets, I realized that this was nonsense, and that the markets are far too big to be effectively controlled, even by gigantic financial corporations. However, it still looked to me as though there was a pattern in what was supposed to be the ‘random walk’, a pattern that matched very closely what I imagined a ‘secret society’ would try to implement in order to maximize their revenues. The obvious conclusion, of course is that if you have enough participants, statistically they start to behave in broadly predictable ‘over-ways’, and this leads to the patterning that the equation is so good at predicting. The word ‘Camarilla’ is based on the Latin word for room (camera), and it means basically a small clique of ‘advisers’ who try to manipulate the person in power for their own ends. Frankly, it was just a joke, and I am always surprised at how seriously everyone took it.

Camarilla equations are used to calculate intraday support and resistance levels using the previous days volatility spread. Camarilla equations take previous day’s high, low and close as input and generates 8 levels of intraday support and resistance based on pivot points. There are 4 levels above pivot point and 4 levels below pivot points. The most important levels are L3 L4 and H3 H4.  H3 and L3 are the levels to go against the trend with stop loss around H4 or L4 . While L4 and H4 are considered as breakout levels when these levels are breached its time to trade with the trend.

camarilla pivot points calculation equation

How to calculate Camarilla Pivot points

To calculate Camarilla Pivot points all you need is previous trading day’s high low and close value.  Below are the equations for calculation various levels.

C = Previous day close

H = Previous day high

L = Previous day low

H4 = [0.55*(H-L)] + C

H3 = [0.275*(H-L)] + C

H2 = [0.183*(H-L)] + C

H1 = [0.0916*(H-L)] + C

L1 = C – [0.0916*(H-L)]

L2 = C – [0.183*(H-L)]

L3 = C – [0.275*(H-L)]

L4 = C – [0.55*(H-L)]

How to use Camarilla Pivot Points in Trading ?

Trading is done on the basis of open price on the next day. Since the market is very volatile in the first 15- 30 minutes of trade and operator action is high, we prefer using weighted average price or the price after 30 minutes as open price.  Depending on the open price there can be different scenarios.

Case 1: Open price is between H3 and L3

Buy when the price move back above L3 after going below L3. Target will be H1, H2, H3 levels. Stop loss can be placed at L4 level

Wait for the price to go above H3 and then when it move back below H3 again sell or go short. Target will be L1,L2 L3 levels and stop loss above H4

Case 2: Open price is between H3 and H4

Buy when the price move back above H3 again after going below H3. Target will be 0.5%, 1% and 1.5% . Stop loss can be placed at H3

Wait for the price to go above L3 and then when it move back below L3 again sell or go short. Target will be L1,L2 L3 levels and stop loss above H4. Target L1, L2 and L3

Case 3: Open price is between L3 and L4

Wait for the price to go above L3 and then when it moves back above L3 again go long. Target will be H1,H2 H3 levels and stop loss  below L4.

Wait for the price to go below L4 and then when it moves below L4 go short. stop loss above L3. Target 0.5%, 1% and 1.5%

Case 4: Open price is above H4

Buying can be risky at this level. Wait for the price to go below H3. As soon as the price moves below H3 go short. stop loss above (H4+H3)/2. Target L1 , L2 and L3

Case 5: Open price is below L4

Selling could be risky at this level as price has opened with big gap down. Wait for the price to go above L3. When the price moves above L3 buy with stop loss of (L4+L3)/2. Target H1, H2 and H3

These are the five cases based on open price on which you have to take trading decision. It gives good results by combining camarilla with other technical indicators like RSI and MACD you can further improve the accuracy. You can easily create Camarilla pivot calculator in excel. I have embedded a Camarilla Pivot point calculating excel sheet. You can refer it to create your own  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1rdN_DAtU7PoU7Yeqx9UBeY4RIuM_O8xNgO8-QB-9vPg/edit?usp=sharing

Opening Range Breakout (ORB) is a commonly used trading system by professional and amateur traders alike and has the potential to deliver high accuracy if done with optimal usage of indicators, strict rules and good assessment of overall market mood. This system is applicable only for intraday trading. 

ORB trading has several variations practiced by traders all over the globe. Some traders trade on a significant breakout from opening range, while others trade immediately on opening range breakout. Time window for the trades also varies from 30 minutes to 3 hours. 

Over a period of time observing and trading Indian markets, I have devised with the below system suiting our markets. Below method is both a scalping and a trending system combined into one, hence it is possible to take the advantage of quick moves and trending markets with multiple lots of trades.

Trading Strategy

Quite Simple and straightforward. Rules in the next section needs to be adhered to increase the success rates dramatically.
Any stock creates a range in the first 30 minutes of trading in a day. This is calling Opening Range. The highs and lows of this timeframe is taken as support and resistance. 

1. Buy when the stock moves above the Opening Range high.
2. Sell when the stock moves below the Opening Range low. 


General Rules – Applicable for both Buy and Sell:

Opening range is defined by the high and low made in the first 30 minutes.

5 min chart with 5 EMA and 20 EMA used for making trading decisions.

Entry should be made only on close of the 5 min candle outside the opening range.

20 EMA is one of the key technical indicators used in this system for trend trading. Stop loss is always kept at 20 EMA for riding the profits.

Volume confirmation – Breakout candle should show increase in volume.

Optional confirmation- One of the two indicators - MACD or Stochastics should be favorable for the trade. (We have four indicators in Simplified Technical Analysis - Moving Averages, RSI, MACD, Stochastics. The idea here is at least two indicators should confirm the trade.). 

This is purely optional condition to enter trade.

  • Respect support and resistance levels. Do not buy just below a resistance or sell just above a support.
  • Always trade with 2 lots and book 50% as soon as you see few points profit. Second lot will be used for taking advantage of days trend.

Rules for Buy

  • Stock should be trading above the 20 EMA line before the breakout.
  • Buy when the 5 minutes candle closes above the opening range.
  • 5 EMA line should be above the opening range at the time of breakout.

Where to keep Stoploss

Initial Stoploss – Low of the Opening Range.
Trailing Stoploss - As the stock moves in your direction and you are in profits, book 50% , trail the stoploss at 20 EMA. A close of 5 min candle below 20 EMA confirms exit.

When to book full profits

When the 5 min candle closes below the 20 EMA in the case of longs.

Rules for Sell

  • Stock should be trading below the 20 EMA line before the breakdown.
  • Sell when the 5 minute candle closes below the opening range.
  • 5 EMA line should be below the opening range at the time of breakout

Where to keep Stoploss
Initial Stoploss – High of the Opening Range.
Trailing Stoploss - As the stock moves in your direction and you are in profits, book 50% , trail the stoploss at 20 EMA. A close of 5 min candle above 20 EMA confirms exit.

When to book full profits

When the 5 min candle closes above the 20 EMA.
High Probability Trade Setups

Below additional conditions will give high probability of success:

  • The Opening Range breakout is above previous day’s high for buy.
  • The Opening Range breakout is below previous day’s low for sell.
  • Trade is in the direction of higher time frame charts (15 min /30 min).
  • Overall Market is moving in the direction of the trade.
  • Opening range breakout happens after brief period of consolidation.

Important Additional Points

  • If the opening range is too wide, better do not trade ORB, since the SLs will be very far in our system. You can use other trading systems in such a case.
  • Avoid Opening Range Breakout trades in case of a heavy news flow day. ( Like Inflation, Manufacturing, Policy decisions etc.). Use other trading systems once the market settles down after the news.

Opening Range Breakout Trading Example



From: kumar A at 11:19 AM - Mar 20, 2016( )

Financial Expert, Robert Kiyosaki. Investment is Not RISKY, lack of KNOWLEDGE is".

There are some BASIC most important RULES that you will have to follow
to get SUCCESS in Intraday Trading.
- Do not trade in the First 1 Hour (between 9:15 am to 10:30 am)
- Best Time to make positions is between 12:30pm to 1:30 pm
- Whenever you initiate a trade, have clear plan. What is the target, what is stop loss.
- If you cannot keep stop loss, then stop trading
- If you cannot book profits, stop trading
- Markets are volatile, do not wait for all targets to be achieved.
- If you are able to make profits and price give reversal, book profits and exit
- If trade is not working in your favour, exit immediately. Don't wait for stop loss to trigger
- When we are wrong, we need to EXIT immediately
- When your targets are HIT, exit immediately. It might REVERSE
- Only in TRENDING market, you can expect all your targets to be HIT
- In sideway market, keep your positions LOW, better don't trade
- Do not trade in Options as positional call during sideway markets
- Index Trading should be avoided in sideway market / when market is trading in narrow range
- Before you start trading, you should have all reference points which influence the price variation.
Open, High, Low, Close, Weekly Open, Weekly High, Weekly Low, Weekly Close,
Fibonacci retracement levels, Pivot Points, Support, Resistance, 52-week low, 52-week high etc.
- Whenever you trade, ensure the Risk:Reward ratio is atleast 1:2.
i.e., If you are making positions, if the loss (or point at which trend may change) is 1 rupee
for 2 rupees profits, then only you should initiate trade.
- When you are making positions for intraday and you are loosing money, do not carry positions
for next day, your loss can increase.

Please find the corrected calculations for Pivot Point Trading


Let’s calculate resistance and support levels.

First resistance level ( R1)  = It is the difference between the {Pivot Point X 2} or Y and the Intraday Low price.

         R1= Y-L

         R2=P+( H-L)

First support level ( S1) = it is the difference between Y and the Intraday High price.

         S1= Y-H

         S2= P-(H-L).

From: kumar A at 01:15 PM - Mar 20, 2016( )

Some more rules:
A. If the gap up or gap down opening happens at 0.618% or 1.272% Fibonacci retracement levels of the previous days high low range then it is a trading day and the current trend will remain continue for the day and confidently do the day trade.
B. If the flat opening followed with resistance or support at 0.382 % retracement of the previous days high or low then maximum possibility the trend will give a ‘U’ turn. In this case wait for 50% retracement level of the previous days to break to decide upon a trade.
C. If the current price is above or below the 90 degree resistance or support Gann line drawn from the low or high of the previous day then it is a good day to initiate day trade in the current direction of the trend.
D. If current price is above or below the 30 degree support or resistance Gann line drawn from the previous days high and low then wait for the break out above 90 degree to initiate intraday trade.
E. If the technical intraday chart give the view of a pennant, rectangle then do not day trade on this day.
F. If the last intraday five minuet candle length is less than 50 % as compared with the last recorded 15 minuet candle line length then don’t do the day trade till 5 minuet candle has not broken the last 15 minuet candles high or low.

Kumar A at 10:26 PM - Jun 20, 2015 ( )

Image of International Yoga Day Celeberation

International Yoga Day

We are celebrating our tradition and culture on 21 Jun. Thank our beloved prime minister Nerendra modi for his great propasal and support to international yoga day. In his proposal of international yoga day in UN counsel he said” “Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness within yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us deal with climate change. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day.”

In suggesting June 21, which is the Summer Solstice, as the International Day of Yoga, Narendra Modi had said that the date is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and has special significance in many parts of the world.

After Vivekananda, Our Prime minister Narendra Modi representing the real Indian culture to the world. Thank God! we got a great leader to represent real Indian culture and tradition to the world. We are well developed in our ancient time but we lost our greatness like a Yogi get distracted by’ Maya’.Here Modi is playing a virtual role to arise and arouse us from the prison of ‘Maya’.

One of the great thing we have to consider about International yoga day, It had the “highest number of co-sponsors ever for any UNGA Resolution of such nature.”[16] On Dec 11, 2014, the 193-member U.N. General Assembly approved by consensus a resolution establishing June 21 as ‘International Day of Yoga’.[17] The resolution also saw a record number of 177 countries co-sponsoring it.
