Sometimes you have to accept loss and come out of the trade. So keep a log of all trading and calculate your profits at the end of the month.

You need to watch the buying and selling volumes and take the trading decision. You can also note yesterdays top gainers and losers and trade in today’s market, because most of the time it has been seen that yesterdays top gaining stocks fall into today’s market due to profit booking and yesterday’s top loser would also gain some points in today’s trading.

4. Don’t rely on technical analysis and technical indicators for day trading. This is our experience. Because this requires skills and knowledge to implement so why not make profit into stocks which are already gaining and losing in the market. Also, in day trading, market and stock movements are mostly based on lot of international and domestic factors and these are beyond anybody’s control so in our analysis technical analysis very rarely work.
5. Trading without margin amount. If you want to save yourself from losses then trade without using margin amount. Trade only using your money, till you become highly skilled and experienced, because if you use margin amount (provided by broker) then you have to sell off your trade before market closes irrespective of whether your trade is in profit or loss. If you don’t use margin amount then you can take delivery of stocks and sell tomorrow if the price goes up. Check your broker how it works in your trader terminal. 6. If you are new to day trading then don’t blindly trade on tips. Learn paper trading practice and if you get success then slowly move to day trading and start trading with very low amount which you can afford to lose.
7. Important events to make good money There are some important events during which the trader can make very good money without any efforts. The requirement is only your knowledge and it comes after spending some time with such events. One of the best and very sure such events to make money in day trading is during quarterly results. Some events like- a) Quarterly results - These are scheduled. b) Elections results c) Monthly Inflation numbers d) Any mergers, acquisitions, take over news of the company, any stake sale news and so on. Such news are always running on the financial television news channel.
Quarter results - Every listed company in BSE and NSE announce quarterly performance/results and during this period the stock prices are bond to react to results. There are four quarters during every financial year. Q1 - For April to June - Results will be declared in July Q2 - For July to Sept - Results will be declared in Oct Q3 - For Oct to Dec - Results will be declared in Jan Q4 - For Jan to Mar - Results will be declared in April
8. Avoid three emotions through paper trading practice. If you want to make money in day trading then you should avoid three emotions - Greed, Impatience and Fear and to avoid these emotions you need to practice day trading through paper trading practice. Once you get success in paper trading practice then you can start trading with your actual money. With these emotions it is very difficult to make money in day trading. 9. Trade with stop loss. As we mentioned earlier, it is not possible to make profit from every trade so it is highly possible that some of your days or trades may go into losses and to limit these losses you need to place stop loss order. Example - If you bought Sun pharma for Rs 650 expecting the stock price will go to Rs 653 and you will book profit but due to sudden change in market direction or stock price direction if stock price start moving down then to limit your losses you need to place your stop loss order. You can talk to your broker about the steps of placing the stop loss order.
10. Trade with small profits and if possible do multiple traders. This is Very important strategy to make money in day trading. Most of the people fail in day trading and end up doing big losses is they expect big profits for every single trade. Example - IF you buy the BPCL for Rs 600 and expecting to take profit of Rs 10 then it would be highly difficult. So to generate consist profits and to avoid losses, look for Rs 3 as profit in this trade. For Rs 100stock price look for 0.50 paisa profit, for Rs 200 stock price look for Rs 1 profit and so on in its multiples. If you apply this strategy then you can easily get the profit and you can come out of the trade very fast and wait for other new order.
