Basics of the moving average:

It takes average of the price for the duration we want.

So 10 days moving average means an average price of 10 days closing price.

Common types of Moving Average:
Simple, Exponential, Weighted.

Use only one type in your trading setup.


Different uses:

1โƒฃ Moving Average Crossovers:

Common strategy used by positional traders and investor in finding multibagger or good returns stocks.

Common crossover used is for 50 & 200 Moving Average.

Also, this is called as "๐—š๐—ผ๐—น๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—–๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ผ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ"


In this buy signal is initiated when lower MA (50 EMA) crosses above higher MA (200 EMA).
And exit or sell signal is intiated when lower MA (50 EMA) crosses below higher MA (200 EMA).


Let's see an example:
Pidilite Industries

Buying Price was 56 in 2009 and CMP is 2462 and still there is no selling signal.

44 times Multibagger or 4300% returns.

In lower time frame, it will give more whipsaw and more number of trades.

Most of us would confuse it with Relative Strength Index (RSI) but Relative Strength is a different indicator.

We have already covered about "Uses of RSI" in below thread๐Ÿ‘‡

One can go through this if you haven't.


Now coming to Relative Strength (RS).

It is basically a strategy used in momentum investing which shows strength or weakness between two asset classes (two stocks, index, commodity).

One can read about this in below

As of now, I am using this indicator on .@tradingview platform.

It's free and one can add it in their Tradingview account as well, using this link๐Ÿ‘‡

There are multiple variants in this as well. Some traders use multiple time frame RS.


RS basically compares returns of one stock/index with the returns of benchmark stock/index at a particular time horizon.

Let's say, I want to analyze TCS and Benchmark Index is Nifty.

#RSI is a common indicator which most of us use in the stock market.

Also, an investment strategy is shared using RSI in the end.


Setup 1:

RSI- commonly used to show whether price is overbought or oversold.

General rule:
๐‘๐’๐ˆ > ๐Ÿ•๐ŸŽ -- ๐Ž๐ฏ๐ž๐ซ๐›๐จ๐ฎ๐ ๐ก๐ญ
๐‘๐’๐ˆ < ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŽ -- ๐Ž๐ฏ๐ž๐ซ๐ฌ๐จ๐ฅ๐

One becomes cautious once price becomes overbought and optimistic when price becomes oversold.


Let's understand this with an example of Laurus Labs:

1. It was in overbought zone and after a few days when a small dip was seen from 693 to 588 (15% downside)

2. It was in oversold zone and after a few days when a small rally was seen from 59 to 107 (82% upside)


Well, this looks very easy, but it is not.

When a price is in overbought zone and is in momentum, then it can move up without taking a dip and exiting or shorting stock would prove wrong.

When IRCTC was in overbought zone, price went up from 2718 to 6396 (135% rally).


Similarly, for oversold stock.

When a price is in oversold zone and is crashing, then it can move down without taking an upmove and buying stock would prove wrong.

When DHFL was in oversold zone, price went down from 126 to 11 (91% crash).

Last strategy is my favourite.

1/ Short Straddle/Iron Condor for Expiry (Famous 916 Strategy):

Just create a Short Straddle/Iron Condor 100 points away in Nifty on expiry day.

For eg. if Nifty Spot is at 17610, then short 17700 CE and 17500 PE.

Iron Condor can be taken by buying 300 points away hedge.

Exit Strategy:
1. Exit all the Position if any of the options become ATM or near to that. For this, an alert at upper and lower levels can be placed.

2. If the above condition is not executed, then close the position manually by 3:15 PM.

For example: In Last Expiry, we have taken below Short Straddle Trade and same was shared live.

Stoploss was kept as 17450/17750 after considering the premium that we collected from

For Banknifty, short straddle can be created for 250/300 points away and for Finnifty 100 points away.

Trading these two indices is bit difficult as they are very volatile and can give wild swings during intraday and especially on expiry days.
