Vexing Day in Indian Markets - Profit Garnered Today


Before markets opened, I gave a call for action today morning in this post. Out of  4 buy positions of Apr Futures held, 3 long positions were listed in this post for selling, with modified targets.

Out of 3 long positions recommended for selling, 2 scrips met their target in trade today. Let us calculate profit generated from these 2 Apr Futures contracts.

April Futures Contracts Bought on 4 Apr 2016, Sold Today ( Check post here )

IDBI        :  Lot size= 8000, BP = 71, SP = 73. Holding Period = 11 trading sessions 
                    Profit = (73-71=2) X 8000 = Rs 16000/-
                    Capital invested for 1 lot = Rs 1,02,000/-
                    Return on Investment ( in 11 days) = 17% 

April Futures Contracts Bought on 5 Apr 2016, Sold Today  ( Check post here )

UNIONBANK        :  Lot size= 3000, BP = 134, SP = 136. Holding Period = 12 trading sessions 
                                    Profit = (136-134=2) X 3000 = Rs 6000/-
                                    Capital invested for 1 lot = Rs 76000/-
                                    Return on Investment ( in 12 days) = 8% 

After squaring off 2 long positions today, we are left with 2 more long positions in Apr Futures. Fresh targets for these remaining 2  Apr Futures positions will be given on tomorrow morning before markets open. So keep watching this space.
