Nifty gaped up within previous day range. FTC above DO gave a short signal. TP on gap closure. BOF of range low gave a long signal.and this moved to range high as expected.. TST short of range high moved well and broke Range low and BRN. BOF of PDL gave a long which also moved well.Last BOF of range high was also trade able. But I was having a long position and exited it


  1. hi sir
    Incredible that you managed to take the first trade ...because of a counter trend gap open ...were you not expecting bullish order flow...And sir can you please explain how do you exactly judge the bias for the day?
    When price is interacting with dp's do you keep limit orders on both sides ..which ever gets filled first you trade that?
    Why did you take last bof pdl trade when fta (BRN 6000) was close by..?

  2. hi sir,

    which software and data source you are using for charting coz mine is differing from you

    1.It was a counter trend gap open. But it was not a CT outside Gap.(Read Gaps)
    2.As a general rule the opening price for the day will either be the high or low for the day at least 50% of the time(Read Opening Price)
    3.Initial move was downward. If it was going up on open I would have expected a spike and channel.
    4.Market attempted another push up but failed.There was not a significant IR low to give support. FTA was the gap closure area which gave ample room.
    5.As you know DO is a prominent DP We are getting a chance to hide behind a DP and shoot.
    6.Risk is well within our tolerance level
    7.There is no such thing as Bias for the day. Bias will go on changing as the price action unfolds.
    8.I do not keep limit orders on both sides.In some situations like master candles I trade in the direction of candle break with SL on the other end.These are all about tactics. You can try.
    9.Notice the earlier LOL break of Range low and BRN.BRN failed to stop the pull back Range low stopped it. so expected price to move upto Range Low.
    10.PDL was a very prominent DP. Breakout failed to extend beyond the breakout bar.
    11.Rejection was very strong. Very next bar retraced above the BO bar
    12.Price has already moved 30 point from Range high. Early entrants are in profit.Once price starts to go up they will start booking their profit feeding buy orders.
    13.Critical mass is in short position. They need to exit.

    Trading is a thinking game. Unfortunately we will miss and fail to notice many clues.
    If we focus on the right things, we will gradually improve and will be able to take better decisions most of the time.

    While marking levels on chart, generally I ignore the overshoots /tails.While trading I look at the levels on chart.Technically you are correct.
    Everyday is a new day. DP s immediately above and below the opening price only matter
