Buy on Dips, Sell on Rallies

I know many readers, who understand the meaning of Buy on Dips, but they don’t know how exactly that means. Generally, any analyst after doing its research comes to a point where he/she had a view that broadly market is going to rise or going fall, based on that it gives a suggestion to their clients.

When we say Buy on Dips means, analyst has a Bullish View and stock has potential go much higher from current levels. In that case, whenever market falls or correct, that particular downfall should be utilized to accumulate the stock which were talked about. For example, Nifty is trading near 5800 levels and it has a fare chance to move higher in coming future, but there could be a chance that in nearest future Nifty may correct towards 5700-5600 levels. Now, in above scenario if you are not pure swing trader than you should utilize this correction to accumulate Nifty and Hold for higher levels to achieve. May be Nifty might test 6000+ levels again, in that case Buy on Dips gives you superior returns.

When we say Sell on Rallies means, analyst has a Bearish View and stock has potential go lower from current levels. In that case, wherever market rises to some extent, that particular rise should be utilized to Sell or Book Profit in that Stock or Index. For example, Nifty is trading near 5800 levels and it has a fare chance to correct or witness downfall in coming future, but there could be a chance that in nearest future Nifty may move higher towards 5900-6000 levels and analyst believes that now there is limited upside and downside potential is higher. Now, in that case, trader can utilize any rise as a selling opportunity in Nifty and hold for the lower target

Above concept should be utilized with proper game plan, because if you don’t know where the turnaround point is, than there is a chance that you may go bust. So, it is always advisable that don’t hear and trust any media news, unless and until you closely follow them. Because, it is their duty to give you advice based on current market scenario and development, and which may be good for day, but once turnaround points come, they are not going to come again on News channel and going to give you advise that please exit from your position. So rely, only where you get consistent view, like we give at Way2Profits.

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.

What is Pullback and Throwback?

If you are often confused with this terminology, than read it further, your confusion will get clear.

According to classical book – Technical Analysis of Stock Trends By Edward, Magee.



Pullback is refereed as return of prices to the boundary of the pattern after a breakout to the downside.  Which means after any breakdown from price pattern, prices again come up to retest the boundary line or neckline of pattern, as shown in below attached figure.









Throwback is referred as return of prices to the boundary line of the pattern after a breakout to the upside.  Which means after any upside breakout from price pattern, prices again come back to retest the support or neck line of pattern, as you can see in below attached figure.




Over and above, John Bollinger in his book Bollinger on Bollinger Bands mentioned and depicted exactly opposite to what we said above.  According to him, Pullback is referred to price movement against the primary trend that does not interrupt that trend.  And in all shown example he has mentioned accordingly.  We respect author and his work, but we like to go with native definition and application.
