Money In The Bank — September 2021 Series — August 31, 2021

BANKNIFTY was a poor cousin of NIFTY for so many days. Yesterday it came to party well dressed and dominated the show. It is another matter that smaller banks were the outperformers. HDFCBANK and ICICIBANK gains were less than BANKNIFTY gain. SBIN did a little better as it moved up 2.50%. We want outperformance from […]

NIFTY makes another all time high. It has stopped being a news. It is occurring regularly. Yesterday was different. It was a big up move sustained throughout the day. There was no letting up. Banks were strong and it is observed that IT sector takes a backseat when banks are driving the market. The day […]

Our trades were supposed to do marginally better in such a situation. Here is the position at close yesterday: Big move, small […]

BANKNIFTY was flat once again on Friday. By all indications, banks are a week spot in the market and that keeps me worried about this strategy’s performance in future. Then I remind myself that it is based on sound principles and should work in falling market too. We shall cross that bridge if and when […]

On Friday, NIFTY moved up 68 points. Not a great job but surely an improvement over two absolutely flat sessions before that. It was not across the board outperformance. Some heavy weights were down, LT was up in a big way and few others contributed in their own way. The net result turned out to […]

Welcome to Monday morning. SGX NIFTY is up 100 points as I write. Will it give us something or take away few points? We can hope for good but it is for the market to do what is good for us. We just wait. On Friday, we saw NIFTY move higher by 68 points. And […]

Sweet and bitter. Good and bad. Pleasure and pain. Profit and loss. One has to go through all of these experiences in trading. To be a good trader, we have to take both kind of feelings in the same manner — without getting hurt. Coming back to yesterday’s performance, it was SBIN once again which […]

August 2021 F&O series came to a close yesterday. The day was absolutely flat after moving both ways. At the end, there was just a 2 point gain. We had to make a small change. In place of CALL 16700 SEP 02, we sold CALL 16600 SEP 02 as NIFTY was nearer to 16600 at […]

It was a dull day for BANKNIFTY as well as our trades. We also do not want every day to be a high octane exercise leaving us either euphoric or in despair at the end of day. Grinding out some profit slowly also works fine with us. That would be actually preferable. Who needs the […]
