Taking Stock : Day Trading Tips For 15 Oct 2009

Market today surprised most of us. From a moderately strong first half an hour, it petered out into a bearish slide. It gained some lost ground in the last hour to close flat for the day. Nifty lost 9 points and Sensex was 36 points down at close. Since the direction of the market was opposite to what was expected, day trading tips given in the last post for today did not do much. In fact the net business would show no profit no loss. Lets evaluate the day's accounts :-

LITL. Supposing you bought at the recommended buy price of 534, the scrip closed at526.7. If you have closed your position then the loss in this position with lot size as 638 should be around Rs 5000/- including brokerage (7.3x638=4657).

HDIL. If you bought HDIL Oct Fut at 378 then there is loss of about Rs 600, including brokerage, from this position as the scrip closed at 377.55 and lot size is 774 (0.45x774=348).

Punjlloyd. Presuming you bought one lot of Punjlloyd Oct Fut at 290 then you would have booked a loss of about Rs 1800 including brokerage. This is because the lot size is 1500 and the scrip closed at 389.

Nagarconst. In case you bought Oct Fut of Nagarconst at 175.5 and exited at 179.5 then with a lot size of 2000, you would have made a profit of about Rs 7700 including brokerage (179.5-174.5=4x2000=8000).

Net Profit= 7700-5000-600-1800= 300. In other words like a flat market closing the account book also closed flat with no profit no loss.
