- You need to be meticulous in pinpointing the exact entry point.
- The entry point has to be such that even if the scrip trades lower after your entry, you should be certain to get your buy price in technical bounce. In this fashion you will never be making any loss. This is very important because stock futures trading is all about protecting your capital. If you can do that, then profit will automatically accrue.
- In selecting such an entry point you need to have tons of patience. It may so happen that your calculated entry point may not be traded for a particular scrip that you were tracking. But that's all right. 'No trade' is better than entering a trade at the wrong point, especially in stock futures because there is a heavy toll to pay once a trade goes wrong. Mark to market (mtm) requirement in stock futures can easily take a trader out of the market, in case of incorrect entry.
