Day Trading in stock market - January 10th, 2009

Day trading:

The means day trading is the trader trying to make money buying and selling stocks during the day taking benefit of the daily price movement. Day traders end the day flat.

Some day traders focus on very short or short-term trading, in which a trade might last seconds to a few minutes. They buy and sell many times in a day, trading very high volumes daily and therefore receiving big discounts from the brokerage.

Some day traders focus only on momentum or trends. They are more patient and wait for a ride on the strong move which may occur on that day. They make far fewer trades than the aforementioned traders.

It is usually stated that 80-90% of day traders lose money. Also price movements in a day are few, so why people trade only in a day? What are advantages of being a day trader?

Benefits of Day Trading


Fewer Stresses

To avoid the risk of price gaps day traders close all their positions at the end of a trading day. Due to this, day trading is less stressful than holding stocks overnight. After market closed you are not worried what will happen until tomorrow and what news will hand out. You never ‘lost sleep'; in the morning have a nice feeling because you don't care what the market's doing at the open.

Contemptible Commission

One thing that makes day trading potentially profitable is commission structure. Day traders pay ‘per share' instead of ‘per trade' structure. If you pay about $10 per trade now when you turn into a day trader, you might pay more than $0.01 per share.

Increased Leverage

Day traders could have 4 times their equity as intraday buying power. This great margin can raise your profits if used shrewdly. This increased leverage makes day trading very dangerous, especially if one has poor discipline, risk or money management.

Profit in any market direction

Day trading often will utilize short-selling to take advantage of downwards stock prices. The ability to lock in profits even as markets drop throughout the trading day is very useful during bear market conditions.
Some Techniques of Day Trading


Range trading

A range trader watches a stock that has been increasing off a support price and declining off a resistance price. That is, every time the stock hits a lofty, it falls back to the low, and vice versa. Such a stock is said to be "trading in a range", which is the opposite of trending. The range trader therefore buys the stock at or near the low price, and sells the high.

Trend following

Trend following, a strategy used in all trading time frames, assumes that financial instruments which have been growing bit by bit will continue to increased, and vice versa. The trend follower buys an instrument which has been increasing or short-sells a falling one, in the hope that the trend will continue.

Scalping

Scalping initially referred to spread trading. Scalping is a trading style where small price gaps created by the bid-ask spread is exploited. It usually involves establishing and liquidating a position rapidly, usually within minutes or even seconds. Scalping extremely liquid instruments for off the floor day traders involves taking quick profits while minimizing risk (loss exposure). The basic idea of scalping is to exploit the incompetence of the market when volatility increases and the trading range enlarge.

Trick for intraday - February 4th, 2009

choose a share for intraday and apply this formula


H+L+C=A (where H= Previous day high, L=Previous day low, C=Previous day close, A= sum. of H L &C)
A*0.67=Z (0.67 is a constant fraction and Z=Result)
Z- H = S (S = Support for that day)
Z- L = R (R = Resistence for that day)
Z- C = P.B (P.B = Possible Buy)

If P.B is found nearer to R sale it for intraday
This is called FRACTION THEORY and every one can get support resistence for nifty /sensex by this method.
try this theory and it is very effective .
