-Make your own trading system
- First identify what suits you ?
Trend Following
Directional or Non-directional option selling
Naked option buying/selling

-Never take more than 1% loss in intraday
-There is no specific trick in market only important is process

-Chart & Data plays a important role ( Understand to combine to identify trades/direction )
-In all trades knowing exit point is very important

Simple target for Kapil sir in straddle is 100 points in a week on BNF & Loss exit point is 50 points after adjustment (R:R 1:2)

- Simple target for Kapil sir in straddle is 50 points in a week on NF & Loss exit point is 25 points after adjustment (R:R 1:2)

Check data after 3:00 p.m Chart + Data ?

Check how is the closing ( Location of closing - Near Day high or Day low or mid of the day )


-If market is near high ( Check in data whether Near ATM PE has more writing & in CE writing whether is less at higher strike price) - It is a Probability

Once Data is bullish along with the close he choose

Strangle- Rs.70 PE & Rs.40 CE or scroll down

Strangle - Rs.50 PE with 10 lots & Rs.50 CE with 5 lots

Data should support chart . If market closing near high but near ATM PE writing is less and CE writing is more ( Chart & Data is not matching )

He never prefer Naked option entry specially for positional

He looks data in perspective of option seller

Data to check for Intraday: ( Avoid on friday because data is immature)
- After 9:30 a.m ( Check PE or CE writing is more)
- If Gapup & sustain for 15 minutes (Obviously More PE then CE writing - Better probability is bullish)

-Then need to check whether aggressive PE
- Check current day data for aggressive
-Check Near ATM how aggressive writing

-Need guts to add naked writing in near ATM
-Data created by big players so understand to judge so we can take trades(Check whether data &chart match)

-If CE writing take over PE writing nee to change the view for directional traders
-Always combine Data with charts because market is probability not certainty
-He never check PCR

What to check and
What not to check is important (spending time here is just wasting time)

How he initiate trade after Data check for directional trade?

-For directional go straddle or spread or strangle
Strangle -Rs.60 PE & Rs.40 CE ( If the directional move comes option price becomes half we get cushion)

Why he avoid MAX OI based selling on expiry?

Example 18100 MAX OI

So if price crosses 18100 panic on one leg by SL triggers as a buy order which can also lead to sudden option premium shout up ( Panic for option sellers)

But same problem of panic is very less in next strike like 18050/18100 during that spike

Why spike occurs? Because everyone become buyers because of option sellers SL triggers as buy order.

This is one main reason he avoid selling in MAX OI

MAX OI breach for him it is a option buying opportunity & not a option selling

Check the option premium before entering trades if it is not decent swift to next week

Better to sell next week expiry with Rs.60/70 premium than selling Rs.15/20 premium in current week

-In all option selling trades placing sl is important
-Data is a reservoir like in dam. Until dam is safe it is useful for nearest village

-He believe straddle means hold both leg if one leg SL hit means exit both leg
-He do combine premium SL on 100 points away straddle

Slow up or down move is more dangerous there are days without big candle nifty will be up/down 250 point

In this case let's say NF is at 18000 after a hour CMP -18100 nearest first resistance is 18120. If first resistance breaches check data

Scroll down to continue

-Whether 17900/800 PE writers are shifting higher to 18000 PE if it happens more chance of price testing next resistance ( Bullishness will continue)

Don't stay on the hope holding CE selling better to exit CE sell or shift higher

Because PE sellers will be aggressive

Don't hope for rejection get confirmation from data & charts. Until there is not confirmation avoid entering opposite direction trades

Market is dynamic not static so we need to be dynamic

After taking overnight option selling position if premium opens more than double he will square off at 9:16 a.m and look for other trading opportunity.

Funny, before the election I recall lefties muttering the caravan must have been a Trump setup because it made the open borders crowd look so bad. Why would the pro-migrant crowd engineer a crisis that played into Trump's hands? THIS is why. THESE are the "optics" they wanted.

This media manipulation effort was inspired by the success of the "kids in cages" freakout, a 100% Stalinist propaganda drive that required people to forget about Obama putting migrant children in cells. It worked, so now they want pics of Trump "gassing children on the border."

There's a heavy air of Pallywood around the whole thing as well. If the Palestinians can stage huge theatrical performances of victimhood with the willing cooperation of Western media, why shouldn't the migrant caravan organizers expect the same?

It's business as usual for Anarchy, Inc. - the worldwide shredding of national sovereignty to increase the power of transnational organizations and left-wing ideology. Many in the media are true believers. Others just cannot resist the narrative of "change" and "social justice."

The product sold by Anarchy, Inc. is victimhood. It always boils down to the same formula: once the existing order can be painted as oppressors and children as their victims, chaos wins and order loses. Look at the lefties shrieking in unison about "Trump gassing children" today.
Rig Ved 1.36.7

To do a Namaskaar or bow before someone means that you are humble or without pride and ego. This means that we politely bow before you since you are better than me. Pranipaat(प्राणीपात) also means the same that we respect you without any vanity.


Surrendering False pride is Namaskaar. Even in devotion or bhakti we say the same thing. We want to convey to Ishwar that we have nothing to offer but we leave all our pride and offer you ourselves without any pride in our body. You destroy all our evil karma.


We bow before you so that you assimilate us and make us that capable. Destruction of our evils and surrender is Namaskaar. Therefore we pray same thing before and after any big rituals.


तं घे॑मि॒त्था न॑म॒स्विन॒ उप॑ स्व॒राज॑मासते ।
होत्रा॑भिर॒ग्निं मनु॑षः॒ समिं॑धते तिति॒र्वांसो॒ अति॒ स्रिधः॑॥

Translation :

नमस्विनः - To bow.

स्वराजम् - Self illuminating.

तम् - His.

घ ईम् - Yours.

इत्था - This way.

उप - Upaasana.

आसते - To do.

स्त्रिधः - For enemies.


अति तितिर्वांसः - To defeat fast.

मनुषः - Yajman.

होत्राभिः - In seven numbers.

अग्निम् - Agnidev.

समिन्धते - Illuminated on all sides.

Explanation : Yajmans bow(do Namaskaar) before self illuminating Agnidev by making the offerings of Havi.
