Open within previous day closing range. IR formed BOF of IRL gave a long signal. TP at MSP. Reversed the trade and went short. Closed it at PDL. LOL BOF of IRL/PDL gave another long signal which failed to move.Scratched the trade and went short on the break of LOD. Nice move.down.BRN gave support


  1. hi sir
    Congrats for capturing the best moves of the day.In the first trade fta (ir high) was so near still you took the trade ..please tell us the reason for taking that trade.Kindly also share the idea behind the last trade..and why did you expect a bo? Nifty has been grinding down so i was not getting conviction for taking a breakout trade!!!

  2. Superb trades, ST!!

    @ Akshay
    1.Notice yesterdays fall.I was expecting this to act as a range.
    2.I was looking to short MSP and buy PDL
    3.Price made 2 attempts to go below IRL.second one was the BOF.Third attempt also failed . Notice candle with lower tail
    4.Initial move was up.
    5.My stop was below PDL
    6.I was well aware of the Resistance cluster. IRH, PDC and MSP and did not expect it to break MSP. The moment it touched MSP exited.

    I am not very comfortable trading direct BO. I do miss a lot of momentum moves because of this. I am working on this weakness.There are two approaches
    1.The momentum move happens due to stop triggering. We need to identify stop order buildup.
    2.If you watch closely , you can see a mid point for all the ranges.Price behaviour at this Range Midpoint (RMP)will give some clues about the BO direction.Especially in tight ranges.
    These are half baked ideas. Work in progress.


  4. Wonderful ST... I am yet to trade using this method.. I love to watch your trades everyday....Fisrt time i saw a Trendline in your chart :-)

  5. Hi Sir,
    The last trade can taken as a BPB trade with help of the master candle.

  6. @Sekar
    I do not rely on trend lines while trading. drew this line to show the successive push ups were making lower highs.

  7. hi sir
    Along with dp trading,do u keep an excel sheet which tracks daily index values and statistics about inside /outisde days ,atr or any other stat which affects your day trading?

  8. Akshay

    No. I do not keep any such statistics
    Such statistics wont give you an edge especially on shorter time frames.
    My focus is to identify a location on my chart where I can anticipate enough order flow to move NF 15-20 points within a few minutes.I am training my mind to act there without hesitation and manage my trade
