RBI Policy is on 8 Feb, SO lesson learned today is that.

Before big events, market will remain sideways and premiums will remain high also. Chances of decay is also very less.

Stay away from this kind of market. Be it options buyer or seller.

Stocks go up due to a catalyst.

Most of the time that catalyst is earnings.

Find the stocks with good earning catalysts and you are good to go.

Earning Quality > Earnings

You need to manually check for earnings quality.

No screener can do the job for you.

I am absolutely convinced that Investing based upon fundamentals will give you much better results than investing based upon charts

Let’s understand this with an example.

Fundamentalists invest when they see that stock is going to breakout from consolidation due to earnings or any fundamental change.

Say price is 50 rs

Return when price is at 100 ------- 100%
Return when price is at 200 ------- 300 %
Return when price is at 300 ------- 500%

By the time, a chart based traders get his hands on this stock is when the price is 100rs.
Lets analyze the returns.

Return when stock is at 200 - 100%
Return when the stock is at 300- 200 %

Can you see the difference in returns ?

It is mostly half for a technical investor.


See the chart below of UCO Bank

Most of the technical investor will only invest after Nov 2022, as the stock is in uptrend and giving a weak pullback.

But the fundamental investor will invest based upon the quarterly result, see the below data

When June 2022 quarter results were out, fundamentalists were ready to invest in it as the result was too good and that too a quality result.

Technical analysts got the price at around 20.- 90 % return at the top

Fundamentalists got the price of 12 — 200% return at the top

Did you see the difference, why most rich people in the world are fundamental investors?

If there is a strong rejection on both the sides, there is a very high chance that market will remain range bound for the day.

Example-- todays chart

First rejection- Morning Star

Second Rejection- Double top

When market rejects a level with a powerful candle and has the highest OI,

Chances are very low that it will break that level again.

Learning for today

The gap and go strategy.

Whenever there is a gap up of more than .5% and market gives a follow-through in the first 10 minutes.


OI data is in our favour.

We can expect market to move in the direction of the gap.

See the today’s OI chart and Candlesticks chart for your reference.

Have your questions here.

Many people were expecting a breakout of PDL at 13:50, but OI stayed firm in BankNifty.

Lesson- Never go against OI.

How to trade the markets.

Bullish Market- Buy the support like PDL, Range Low, Swing Low etc.

Bearish Market- Short the resistance- PDH, Range High, Swing High

Sideways- Fade support and Resistance.

Example Today- Overall market is bullish, BNF came to support at PDL formed multiple rejection candle and broke out of range.Entry Bullish candle as shown

Never go against the trend

What to do when nifty and banknifty are trading in different direction?

Trade only when both converges and starts moving in same direction
