On popular demand, here’s a thread on our key takeaways from F&O Pe Charcha with @Mitesh_Engr

Start with a low capital and master all 3 phases of the market – upward, downward and consolidation. If your winning trades are >60-70%, then increase your capital.
Treat trading as a business and target similar gains. An annual profit of 25% is reasonable and achievable.

Does a restaurant change recipes every day? No.
Similarly, stick to strategies if there is a 70% success rate. If it doesn’t work for 2 months, don’t worry, it might work for the rest of the 10 months
Option buyers need more skill than sellers as they need to catch the direction at the right time.
Approx 5-7 stocks move in a given day.

Study the charts before market opens and catch the moment in the first hour of trading. You can assess the pre-open rates of all F&O stocks at 9.07 a.m. and place the potential stocks in your watchlist.
Traders with smaller capital like Rs. 1-2 lakhs must consider hedging as their trades might not be as diversified.

I prefer taking positions in a breakout compared to consolidation.
I started trading full-time only after going through all 3 phases – bull, bear and consolidation!
Fear comes into the picture when your position size is huge.

Leverage is a double-edged sword and must be carefully considered. If a trader wishes for more profit, he/she could increase the capital instead of leveraging.

One must look at % return rather than amount of profit.
Traders with a small capital of Rs. 2-5 Lakh should consider starting with index options.
A quick scenario:

In a gap up where I see a bull trend emerging, I’d sell a put where there were breakout signs. If there’s a gap the next day, I’d sell the previous day’s closing price strike after unwinding.

Once upon a time there was a Raja named Uttānapāda born of Svayambhuva Manu,1st man on earth.He had 2 beautiful wives - Suniti & Suruchi & two sons were born of them Dhruva & Uttama respectively.
#talesofkrishna https://t.co/E85MTPkF9W


Now Suniti was the daughter of a tribal chief while Suruchi was the daughter of a rich king. Hence Suruchi was always favored the most by Raja while Suniti was ignored. But while Suniti was gentle & kind hearted by nature Suruchi was venomous inside.
#KrishnaLeela


The story is of a time when ideally the eldest son of the king becomes the heir to the throne. Hence the sinhasan of the Raja belonged to Dhruva.This is why Suruchi who was the 2nd wife nourished poison in her heart for Dhruva as she knew her son will never get the throne.


One day when Dhruva was just 5 years old he went on to sit on his father's lap. Suruchi, the jealous queen, got enraged and shoved him away from Raja as she never wanted Raja to shower Dhruva with his fatherly affection.


Dhruva protested questioning his step mother "why can't i sit on my own father's lap?" A furious Suruchi berated him saying "only God can allow him that privilege. Go ask him"
