IntraDay-trading tips for novices and beginners

Share |

People often want to board the day trading train in order to make quick money, but very few suceed in making big while doing day trading. Ease of starting day trading by simply sitting at your home is one of the factor for it's popularity. However lot of people leave it within a year saying that day trading is not their cup of tea. The participants in day trading are not limited to professional traders, retirees, executives, teachers, small business owners, housewives, etc. Remember, earning profits in day trading over a period of time is not a CHILD's PLAY!

One has to follow some rules for day trading, especially when you are a newbie in this field. These rules/guidelines are very basic and are not binding (as exceptions are always bound to be there), but these definetly helps in making informed decisions needed for making a good investment. Basically these are guidelines and not rules.

1) Knowledge:
'Knowledge' wrto Day trading includes information about the basic trading procedures and tools, information about stocks you plan to trade (like company financials, reports and charts), knowing the latest in the stock markets, keeping track of events that affect stocks, etc. Day trading can become more difficult and risky in the absence of knowledge. As a rookie, do your homework; make a list of stocks which are on your wish list, keep yourself informed about the selected companies and general markets, scan a business newspaper and visit reliable financial websites on a regular basis.

2) You need to be Realistic for returns:
Being realistic about profits is important. As you gear up to trade, make sure that you don’t lose out on decent gains in the greed for more! Markets are tricky and it’s better to settle down for a smaller profit than ending up losing heavily. If required, you can always buy the same stock when it dips. Every small profitable trade will help boost your confidence and also give you a chance to try out the strategy again.

Why copying Institutional/Big investors is dangerous for Retail investors

Share |

Many newbies of stock market often find that the easiest way of entering the domain of stock market investing is by copying the investing techniques/portfolios of seasoned investors or institutional investors, but remember

There are many reasons for the questions: Why is copycat stock investing dangerous?. I am covering some of the aspects regarding the same in this post. READ CAREFULLY

1. Holding diversification becomes too difficult to achieve: Institutional Investors or Big investors hold different stocks from almost every domain in their portfolio, they have lot of money for ensuring that their risk is mitigated by a diversified portfolio. Such a diverse portfolio is too hard to match for a retail investor because of money crunch, hence they are not able to diversify and hence face a greater risk of a loss from their investment portfolio. The main reason of big investors making profits from their investments over time is 'Diversified stock portfolio'

Investing in ETF's and calculation of Net Asset Value (NAV)

Share |

Exchange Traded funds, popularly known as ETF's are some-what similar to Mutual funds. Exchange Traded Funds or ETF's is basically a security that tracks an index, a commodity or a basket of assets like an index fund, but trades like a stock on an exchange. ETF's experience price changes throughout the day as they are bought and sold and the NAV for ETF is dependent on movement of a stock index over a period of time.

Benefits of putting your money in Exchange Traded funds is that it helps in getting a broad exposure to stock, bonds and comodities, which are traded daily on various stock exchanges. ETF's are similar to Mutual Funds as both's performance is based on value of Net Asset Value or 'NAV'. Since ETF's are actively traded they are thus similar to stock trading.

Net Asset value of ETF is generally calculated at end of the trading day of Exchange. Following is method for calculating the investment return percentage for ETF. Since Exchange Traded funds trades through out the day, hence for getting accurate numbers use the iNAV(Intraday Net Asset Value), There would be very less difference between NAV and iNAV though.

Calculating ROI in Exchange Traded Funds:

Purchase price of 1 NAV -> INR 50
Number of shares purchased -> 75
Total Money invested in ETF's -> (Price of 1 NAV)*(Total number of Assets purchased) = 50*75 -> INR 3750

Price of single NAV after 3 months -> INR 60
Total value of investment after 3 months waiting period -> 60*75 -> INR 4500

Net Appreciation = 4500 -3750 = INR 750 or 20 percent return.

5 steps for building your Stock Portfolio

Share |

Many stock investors often dream about having an ideal stock portfolio where none of the stock is a laggard. This is however a 'never-to-be-true' scenario as one cannot correctly analyse how the stock would perform over a year from purchasing it. In this post I would guide readers who are new to stock markets/investing, how to build their stock portfolio. Choosing a correct stock is most important of all the requirements for a successful portfolio. This involves sheer analysis acumen of the person. Analysis involved includes tracking the stock performance of the past couple of years, smartness of the management of the company.

Is it too early to directly start the detailed analysis...PAUSE...lets start with the introduction about STOCK PORTFOLIO!

IF I compare a person's stock portfolio to a house then I can find various similarities in two of them. Actually building a stock portfolio is like building your house where different stocks represent different rooms and If one of the room is filthy then a person hates it and doesnot want to enter the room again. All the rooms should be rightly furnished/lightened so that the overall experience feels pleasing and comfortable.

Step-by-step guide for Stock portfolio: 1. Create a blueprint: A person should make a blueprint which clearly states following bullet points: a) Reason for stock portfolio, what a person wants in his portfolio b) What is the goal of the investment. c) How long a person can invest/hold d) How much should a person put into cash, bonds, and various types of stocks. 2. Know your portfolio and make periodic calculations for the market value of all your investments, keep yourself updated with present trends in these investments in order to find perfect time for exiting one or many . 3. Make sure your stock portfolio is strictly in accordance to the blueprint you made, If it is not so then your house is not being made according to the plan, which would haunt you later in case of emergency. a) Remove any of the redundant investments you have made, If you have 3 large-cap bond investments then try to exit two of them as all would give similar returns/risks and because similarly you never want your house to have 3-4 store rooms. 4. Balancing the stock investments is the key : Generally stocks give higher returns then bonds, hence there is high possibility that your investments would include higher percentage of stocks as the time passes, thus increasing your risk percentage. Hence do a periodic check that your investments as exactly in accordance to the initial blueprint. If you want to invest more in stocks over time then invest the profit money which you received till now from your investments, This would mitigate risk and your principle amount would be much safer. 5. Analyze your Investments periodically: There is a high possibility that the mutual funds part of your investment doesnot have the same rating which you decided in your blueprint, hence you need to sell them and purchase the ones which fit in accordance to the blueprint. You should sell stocks only when it has reaced the target sell price you made during the blueprint creation. These 5 steps are very basics which should be followed by everyone who wants to make his/her stock portfolio. Still there can be more additions to above steps which I might have missed, so using your own brain is foremost important thing needed for making stock portfolio.
