What to do now???

Hello Friends,

Today I got a chance to speak to one of the subscriber of Gann Square of Nine Method. It seems in last couple of days he lost his hard earned money and obviously now he was in search of some black box system which should work in all market scenario. He asked me few questions and i thought this questions are not only his questions, but in general all the participants must be thinking in the same way. Hence this article.

  • Friends, first look at this chart Nifty. I had nothing but drawn a simple trendline from the lows of Jan 2016 and adjoined to next two important swing lows, out of which one trendline is already broken and another is about to test in days to come, or God Knows if it will tested just today itself. Point of support based on this trendline is somewhere near 10180.
  • Secondly, on chart 14-pd RSI is plotted on down, where one may clearly see that RSI has broken the previous swing low, whereas price has not which is 9951. So in technical terms it is called as Hidden Bullish Divergence. Which indicates that after tremendous selling pressure possibility of pullback can’t be overruled.
  • Next one may see INDIA VIX which has made a high of 20.48 and lastly settled at 19.73.  On 8th Feb,18 it made a high of 24.035 wherein from it cooled-off. Importantly if we see in past, even after VIX cools-off from the highs, prices may continue to decline initially and after few days it starts recovering. So, it is better to assume that INDIA VIX may initially rise and eventually it starts cooling-off but that does not indicate bottom reversal.
  • And lastly one more important observation, If we see Average Range of Nifty, it has shot up dramatically, and it is not only Index but Average Range of most of the stocks has tripled, which is not obvious.

Now, how to interpret this data and how to poise ourself in the market. First and foremost you have to decide, why you are in the market,

  • For Excitement and Thrill
  • For taking Revenge
  • For making Money

If your answer is 1 or 2 then you are most welcome and enjoy the ride, but if your answer is 3 than my sincere suggestion is to wait for a while, no matter how good you are or bad your system is. Mostly none of the system discounts such a high volatility with such a wide Average Range. Take your prudent judgement and save your money from big time loss. If you are Investor than start accumulating selected stocks in a staggered manner. And if you are Trader than Just Relax, wait for VIX to come in its territory and wait for Average Range to switch to normal course.

Friends, i can give you couple of other points of analysis, but don’t want to confuse you much. I try to keep it simple. If you have any query feel free to ask me. I will answer you for sure.

Why to Trail, Stop Loss?

In most of my articles I mentioned about trailing stop loss. I am sure experienced traders know this concept very well, and know how to utilize this in best possible manner. But novice traders may get confused many a times that why to trail stop loss, how to trail stop loss any few other points.

Let me begin with, basic understanding of Trailing Stop Loss.

After initiation of trade once stock moves in desired trend, trailing stop loss can be used to avoid the potential loss of profits.  In simpler words, if traders buys the stock and price moves in favor of trade on upside, it is always desirable to progress stop loss order in your favor. For example if Traders Buys Nifty lot near 5850 and Nifty moves to 5880, it is always advisable to progress your stop to your cost price.  Here simple rule applies, once stock achieve 1:1 ratio in favor of your trade, trader should always trail stop to cost price and wait for further directional move.  By this trader is rest assures that now he has nothing to lose from his pocket, and now he is trading at break-even level, in worst case scenario he can trail stop to nearest level of current market price to book profit in 1:1 ratio.  By following this rule, in long term trader not only protect his capital from drain but also builds a wealth and simple discipline will make him confident about taking a trade.

I advise my readers to trail stop loss even when you are following Gann Square of Nine rules, Camarilla Trading method, or any positional trading strategy, it will be always highly useful. (Experienced traders can excuse)

So, if you want to earn with confidence, than try to follow some simple discipline, and you’ll surely see your confidence building up, which is nothing but another Way To Profits…

What is the right way to Trade with Pivots?

When you say Buy above this level, and Sell Below this level; it means actually you don’t have any direction about the market or instrument. Basically this is a mechanical way of trading, without using any of your intellectuals. Here I don’t want to hurt feeling of any of the Trader who is already following some pivot rules very seriously and earning out of it. I respect them, but trying to make few points clear to novice traders.

When you apply any mechanical trading system, you should know what nitty-gritty’s are involved in developing system, back testing it, understanding its limitations, in which market condition there is high probability that your system will succeed or fail. But when any novice trader or even analyst exposed to some pivotal rule, generally he/she just check few past trades and directly jump into conclusion that is best or worse. Who cares to back-test method with thoroughly? Without back-testing any method in different market condition, how can you conclude whether it is good or bad?

I think many a times market stands at crucial junctures where there will be an equal probabilities develop to turn bullish or bearish, like according to my analysis few days back Nifty was standing at such point. But, every now and then if I am saying that market has equal chance to turn Bullish or Bearish, than either there is something wrong with my analysis or I am using such pivotal trading method, which gives me some mechanical answers about direction.

Some Do’s and Don’ts of Pivotal way of Trading


  • Understand formula behind your pivot trading.
  • After understanding, just back test your formulae on your preferred instrument, with various possibilities, like in an End of Day basis, intraday basis, Hourly, Weekly and so on.
  • Just don’t back test recent data, check in all market conditions, and understand what is pros & cons of the system.


  • If you are a part time trader, like if you are doing trading for earning some extra income and not seating live in the market, than I would suggest not entering in a market with such way of trading. It is not at all meant for you, although it sounds very attractive to you, because you don’t have to apply brains here. Please Avoid.
  • Without Back testing method, don’t enter into market with open knife, which can hurt you more.
  • If you are subscribed to a services and service provider sends you this type of recommendations than I think you should look for something else, because you are best client, to whom they provide service without any effort. Look for something else.

There are number of pivotal trading method, which are quite successful and used by many traders (mind it full time traders), some of them are.

  • Gann Square of Nine
  • Camarilla Pivot Trading.
  • Fibonacci Pivot Trading Method
  • Pivot trading based on Moving Averages

And there are number of other methods which are used according to convenience of traders.
