After a gap open Nifty was in a grinding up trend. Attempted two long trades. BPB of PDH/NS BRN. Closed the trade when price fell below RN. Another BO long of Range high after a minor trap pattern. Trades did not move as expected.

  2. Hi ST,
    What kept you away from getting Trapped (last trade).

    1. I considered 6040-6060 as a range and RN 6050 as mid point
      So did not hurry with the CT short as it has not broken the RN well
      Further there was no down move after the earlier 2 BOF at RN

    2. Sentu,

      You can add another monitor and open individual charts on both monitors. Provided you have a graphic card with two ports, from that each port you can connect the monitors individually.

    3. Hi Sentu,

      I use 2 Monitors. You need to go to - Properties-- Display-- Extend my desktop. Same Mouse Pointer can be moved from 1st Monitor to 2nd.

      Thanks,

    1. I avoid breakouts. Prefer BPB trades or the BOF of other extreme

  6. Hi ST,
    What was the reason for not exiting below 10:15 or 10:09? Thanks

    1. I strongly felt that the flip will hold. Risk was also very minimum
      One can exit on the BOF of RN

  8. Namaskaar ST ji,
    For the last trade, I kept the SL just below the 14:59 BO bar and got stopped on the subsequent bar. You mentioned many times that the SL should be below the BO bar. Also there were 4-5 TST attempts at range high, creating a PP kind of situation, which made me think that there should be no retracement below BO bar. Was my SL valid?

    1. Do not micro manage trades.
      SL can be behind DP, Behind Flips, Beyond swing pivots,MC extremes and BO bar extremes
      Many times I have written about round numbers also

  9. Would'n't break of 8050 RN around 1253-1256 qualify as BOF of HOD/RN; similar to break of 7968 on 25 Aug 1418 candle which you took as BOF short of HOD. I am asking this since both situations were very similar, all time new highs and a CT trade.

    I didn't take any of these shorts, just trailed my SL.

    1. Here you can attempt a short. But FTA will be the range low
      I exited the long here.

    2. Thanks ST. Much appreciated... I am now being able to take trades without worrying and pull the trigger both entry and exit.

  10. Sometimes I have seen you skip a trade when the setup appears in last half hour, the reasons I somewhat understand is that there is not enough time for a substantial move, and something about day traders getting out of game in last half hour or so.

    So in today's Trap trade you had taken, wasn't it too close to the final time. How to decide the time factor whether it is too close to 3:30 or not?

    Thanks,

    1. Generally i do not trade after 3 PM
      Reason is generally traders wont make any new commitments at fag end. Further brokers will start squaring MIS positions.Today I expected some short covering when it broke 8060 a level tested thrice earlier. It did not move as expected

    1. Profit is a function of our position size.
      If you are able to make 5 nifty points a day CONSISTENTLY you can trade for a living
      My aim is to make 10 point a day. That I am achieving

    1. Market is in a strong bull orbit. Making new highs day after day.
      Every ten point dip is being bought aggressively. Stay with the trend. Do not fight it
      Buy the range lows and TRAPS.Avoid counter trend trades in such trending markets
