1) Adding many indicators in expectation to make quick money. But reality is Indicators follow price.

So try to understand what buyers/sellers are doing to move the price.

Scroll down 👇
2) Just because the candle is BIG ( BIG red colour candle means SELL & Big green colour candle means BUY ) on 5 min or 15 min timeframe for intraday.

Remember this is not a trading strategy. You are just attracted by the big candle & colour

Scroll down 👇
3) Just because having capital in demat account want to utilise full capital in a trade.

Remember don't risk max.more than 2% of your capital on the single trade.

Loss can be controlled but profits can't be controlled. FOCUS which can be controlled

Scroll down 👇
4) Placing stoploss most of the time exactly at visual reference levels like

-Above Day high/swing high or below Day Low /Swing low
- Exactly above/below VWAP
- Above Previous day high or below Previous day low etc...

Scroll down 👇
5) Searching for holy grail system or searching for high accuracy strategy like 95% or 100% sure shot - Actually it doesn't exist.

Trading is a not about accuracy on strategy it is about how balanced is your profit/loss

6) Jumping from one strategy to another without even understanding the market cycle.

There are three main cycle
- Trending ( Clean up/down move)
- Sideways
- Volatile ( Aggressive up/down in a wide range)

So based on the market start deploying the strategy

7) Getting Trapped by number:

Just because banknifty is showing +700 points up thinking that price will not further go UP just immediately taking a short side trade.

( Understand the market cycle from the above tweet )

Scroll down 👇
8) Buying OTM options and thinking to be 2x or 5x. But the reality is almost more than 70% of option strikes expiry at 0.

If you really want to trade in option buying better focus on ATM/ITM option strike price.

Scroll down 👇
9) Thinking Trading is some magic business or lottery ticket and expecting to double capital in every 3 or 6 months consistently.

Come out of that Unrealistic DREAM

Scroll down 👇
10) Most traders don't have a Trade plan just sit in front of the screen during Market hours and want to trade every-move & everyday.

Remember - We trade in the market to make money but not to trade every-move.
11) Frustration , FEAR , Panic , Shouting on your friends,family after LOSSES.

A direct signal that either you are losing/lost 10% , 20% of capital or even more on a single trade.

You have not managed risk/ controlled loss no point in blaming others.

Scroll down 👇
12) Blindly following some tips/call providers in expectation to make quick or fast money.

In trading there is nothing called Fast money. Trading is business were money can be made only consistently.

I’m torn on how to approach the idea of luck. I’m the first to admit that I am one of the luckiest people on the planet. To be born into a prosperous American family in 1960 with smart parents is to start life on third base. The odds against my very existence are astronomical.

I’ve always felt that the luckiest people I know had a talent for recognizing circumstances, not of their own making, that were conducive to a favorable outcome and their ability to quickly take advantage of them.

In other words, dumb luck was just that, it required no awareness on the person’s part, whereas “smart” luck involved awareness followed by action before the circumstances changed.

So, was I “lucky” to be born when I was—nothing I had any control over—and that I came of age just as huge databases and computers were advancing to the point where I could use those tools to write “What Works on Wall Street?” Absolutely.

Was I lucky to start my stock market investments near the peak of interest rates which allowed me to spend the majority of my adult life in a falling rate environment? Yup.

A brief analysis and comparison of the CSS for Twitter's PWA vs Twitter's legacy desktop website. The difference is dramatic and I'll touch on some reasons why.

Legacy site *downloads* ~630 KB CSS per theme and writing direction.

6,769 rules
9,252 selectors
16.7k declarations
3,370 unique declarations
44 media queries
36 unique colors
50 unique background colors
46 unique font sizes
39 unique z-indices


PWA *incrementally generates* ~30 KB CSS that handles all themes and writing directions.

735 rules
740 selectors
757 declarations
730 unique declarations
0 media queries
11 unique colors
32 unique background colors
15 unique font sizes
7 unique z-indices


The legacy site's CSS is what happens when hundreds of people directly write CSS over many years. Specificity wars, redundancy, a house of cards that can't be fixed. The result is extremely inefficient and error-prone styling that punishes users and developers.

The PWA's CSS is generated on-demand by a JS framework that manages styles and outputs "atomic CSS". The framework can enforce strict constraints and perform optimisations, which is why the CSS is so much smaller and safer. Style conflicts and unbounded CSS growth are avoided.
