Nifty opened near PDL and sold. Went short on the BPB of PDL. Covered when the second attempt to go below BRN failed. Range move for a long period. Long on the BOF of LOD/BRN.I was not very confident as PDL was very near and the BOF did not go below the tail extreme. As expected there was some short covering. Price broke PDL and DO/HOD.Nifty is now in decline mode making lower low and lower high in daily chart.

    1. Yes. The last BOF did not break that level

  3. Dear ST
    Below 09:27 candle, space was only 7 points to BRN, But Risk You took was more than 14 Points. Will you please explain your thought before taking that trade and allowing another PB just near previous TOP.

    1. Break below PDL is a major transition. Market is likely to shift to reverse gear after a long time.
      That is daily chart making a lower low and entering decline mode. Further price got accepted below NS BRN 8100
      So took a chance.

    1. First trade was a good one.
      Breakout entries are low probability ones. Most of them will fail.
      I avoid them as far as possible. Attempt only trend BO or with a BOF of other side.

  5. About the BOF LOD/BRN trade, I didn't take it since I saw it as a TST of LOD rather than a clean BOF. PDL being close was another concern.

    However when it broke above PDL in 1457 candle and next candle was a small one, I thought of it as BPB long PDL and tried to go long using buy limit SL order above 8121.8, but couldn't because it ran away within seconds while I was figuring out how to put limit SL order! (I haven't used them yet).

    My question is: would it be valid to go long as BPB of PDL at that level above PDL? I was aware of FTA HOD being close but based on high volume on breakout bar thought it could be good for 12 pts or more.

    1. It was just a short covering rally.
      Many day traders were short and they waited for a sell off which did not happen
      We cannot say how long the move will last. Safer to enter at the beginning of the move

  6. Isn't it too early to call NIFTY in decline mode on the daily TF?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Decline mode does not mean the market is going to fall or daily in down trend.
      Today's candle in daily chart made a lower high and lower low.
      Rally and decline refers to the Micro trend in day time frame which is the lowest level trend

    1. Both the trades were BO trades.
      Even if you consider the TRAP. It never broke the earlier extreme for an entry

    2. Thanks ST
      Moving forward I will take only BOF trades and BPB trade only if there is a BOF in the other side .

  10. Hi ST,
    Your teaching is simple and consistent, you guide us daily and pay attention to each individual in the most amazing way, such teaching is nowhere on the net and can hardly be found even in the real world. You are a teacher, guide, mentor all rolled into one for us here. You are like the teacher Bruce Lee talked about...in Lee's words, A true teacher is never a giver of truth; he is a guide, a pointer to the truth that each student must find for himself. You are simply an awesome teacher ST. You have also **honestly** shared the knowledge and trading wisdom you have gained through your hard work which is super awesome. Thanks again a LOT.

    1. I am happy that I could guide a few. Most of them are still in Cognitive stage.
      Few of them have reached the associative stage. Our ultimate aim is to reach the third stage which is called Autonomous stage. It is going to be a long journey.

    1. Nifty is the index. No body can trade it.
      You can only trade its derivatives, Futures and Options

    1. I hope so.
      If it consolidates in a 10 point range for six months,we may need to explore something else.

  14. Hi ST,
    In this chart, why are we not taking the BRN as range low http://imagizer.imageshack.com/img538/2606/s3bbZo.png At what point did you decide that it is not the BRN (red line) but the LOD (your blue line) that is more significant? Thanks a lot for your help.

    1. I considered it as a zone rather than two different levels.
      This is a clear case of absorption which held the whole day . There were tons of resting buy orders just below BRN

    2. ST,
      Thanks a lot. How to avoid going for BOF earlier than the last trade?

      Delete
    3. The range looks wide in chart.
      It was actually a 20 point one with IRL as a clear mid point
      Critical mass was short and I entered expecting some reversal at fag end
      Otherwise go for a BO or BPB of the range high

    4. Thank you ST. Friday's price action looks some what similar around BRN, doesn't it?
