Can I build portfolio based on Technical Analysis?

If this question arises in your mind, and you are looking for right advice on it, than please read this article.

Let me try to answer above question.  To me obvious answer is Yes, you can certainly build portfolio based on Technical Analysis. Simple argument is for building portfolio you should ascertain some methods through which you can acquire good stock and which has a potential give you good returns. Broadly there are two approaches to derive a method, one is Fundamental analysis and another is Technical analysis. Within both the approach there is n-numbers of methods which anybody can use. Now which approach you choose and accordingly which method you choose, it all depends upon a individual selection.  No matter, which method you choose for short listing process, ultimately your short listed candidate should do well, that is the purpose or ideology behind building a portfolio, right?

If you are serious about making money than you have to be serious about learning concepts and methods, there is no choice to it. And let me tell you very frankly, if you learn one or two concepts from internet than there are high chances that you might trap in wrong hands, because on Internet you find 8 out of 10 who writes on subject doesn’t know nitty-gritty about it, they are writing for their pockets. I will not go in detail, if you want to know further than better read my article on it – Be aware of blog marketers.

Now, I focus on core subject, building portfolio based on technical analysis. Please, don’t expect that I will teach you some Holy Grail method here, as such there is none, and if you come across one than please do let me know. But what I am trying to emphasize is that, if you thoroughly apply even some basic rules of technical analysis than also your portfolio and your performance will improve significantly.

Further if you have any query or you want to learn technical analysis feel free to get in touch with me, I will try to answer your query.


Update as on 20 Feb’13

Nifty as on 20th Feb’13 – 5964.30

It was quite frustrating day, as Nifty remained range bound during whole day and closed with weak candle, which makes me more cautious now. I would prefer to stay long with trailed stop loss as my cost price.

Bank Nifty as on 20th Feb’13 – 12410

Bank Nifty did not move above level of 12515, so my trade is not triggered and now I will look for fresh setup.

Bank Nifty ready to move?

Bank Nifty as on 19th Feb’13 – 12450

Today i.e. on 20th you will get the answer.  I sense Bank Nifty is on verge of turning up positive, but it will be slightly early to confirm it.  I will be waiting for bank nifty to rise above 12515, where I like to take long position in it, with a stop loss of 12330.  Reason why I am skeptical, because as of now heavy weights are not confirming the fact, so we should be trading with more cautious approach.

Please don’t take this as a trading recommendation.


Nifty as on 19th Feb’13 – 5960

As expected yesterday, Nifty moved higher, but it happened in last two hours.  Anyways, we are long in Nifty.  Today, I got one signal and now I am waiting for next confirmation to come above 5980 (close), where I would like to add on long position with stop loss near today’s low of 5885.  Still I am cautious and we’ll see for tomorrow’s price action.


Nifty as on 18th Feb’13 – 5906.50

Nifty as on 18th Feb’13 – 5906.50

Today Nifty closed with minor gains. I sense that Nifty has a potential to turn positive again from here on.  To turn me positive, tomorrow Nifty has to move & stay above 5906 than my 1st target would be 5945 with today’s low as a stop loss viz. 5860.  If Nifty moves favorable than trail stop loss with 20 points wiggle allowed. I will add on position only once Nifty moves and closes above 5980, which will be solid confirmation to turn positive.

Please don’t take this as a trading recommendation.
