Saturday Story — Stocks Not To Buy in 2020 — Another Review

I am fond of saying — The weak shall stay weak. Let us see how this has worked out this year. In January 2020, I had listed 6 stocks for avoiding for investment purpose. The position till October 01, 2020 was like this: On last trading day of this month, October 30, 2020, NIFTY closed […]

Money In The Bank — November 2020 Series — October 30, 2020

BANKNIFTY continued its negative trend from the previous day. There was a good recovery after 2 pm which saved the blushes for the index. Our trades improved little. There was a setback as HDFCBANK was a big loser. It was the gain in KOTAKBANK which helped the trades to close in a better position. Let […]

Bucking The Trend — November 2020 Series — October 30, 2020

Another day when NIFTY and BANKNIFTY both were down. Not by too much though. At one stage the indices were in real bad shape but recovered almost half of the lost ground. The churning in the market goes on. Our trades did not buck the trend. ITC and COALINDIA stayed with their negative trend. BANKNIFTY […]

Not So Lazy — November 2020 Series — October 30, 2020

Market was down for yet another day. There were big losers among the top 10 stocks like LT, HINDUNILVR, HDFC and HDFCBANK, ITC and INFY. There were some gainers too like RELIANCE, TCS, KOTAKBANK and ICICIBANK. The 58 point loss in NIFTY made the NIFTY PUT 11200 go up slightly. The combined result was that […]

Money In The Bank — November 2020 Series — October 29, 2020

Today we have the expiry day for October series. A lot of volatility is expected on expiry day. It is not that we are lacking in it on other days. Yesterday saw a big down move in BANKNIFTY which completely negated the up move of previous day. We had planned to get out of KOTAKBANK […]

Bucking The Trend — November 2020 Series — October 29, 2020

NIFTY fell 159 points. COALINDIA and ITC too were down. So was BANKNIFTY. Trades in COALINDIA were taken with credit less than what was planned. Let us hope we get to keep some profit out of it. As BANKNIFTY went lower, the position changed to a loss once again in that set up. ITC and […]

Not So Lazy — November 2020 Series — October 29, 2020

Another bad day for these trades. The heavy weights are doing worse than the index. The fall in NIFTY does not compensate for the loss in sold PUTS. Maybe as more time goes away, the effect of time decay becomes more pronounced and the situation gets better. For the day we look at the bad […]

Money In The Bank — November 2020 Series — October 28, 2020

This was BANKNIFTY yesterday. Almost 700 points gain after being about 150 points in the red in early trades. Who would have thought such a move was waiting after the 402 point fall on Monday. Even in this big gain, there were 5 losers. KOTAKBANK was the leader of the rally as it gained 11.70% […]

Bucking The Trend — November 2020 Series — October 28, 2020

Market is a strange place. BANKNIFTY going up spoiled our set of trades in Not So Lazy series. The same up move helped the trades in this set up get back into profit. We wanted BANKNIFTY to move up and ITC to move down. Generally, what we want does not happen. Yesterday the market obliged […]

Not So Lazy — November 2020 Series — October 28, 2020

Yesterday was a strange kind of day in the market. NIFTY gained 1.03%. The gain happened even while INFY, TCS and HDFC were big losers. RELIANCE did nothing. With these 4 stocks not contributing anything to the index, we saw a real bad performance from our set of trades. The profit from other sold options […]
