1/ Recent events serve a powerful reminder for why professional-grade, self-custodial exchanges are important.

Hackers have a harder time when there's no hot-wallet to target, no soft underbelly servers or human-based security.
2/ We send our condolences to Kucoin & traders whose funds were compromised. This isn’t a good time for many.

But now is a good time to TAKE ACTION and explore professional-grade alternatives.

Those letting you STAY IN CONTROL of funds w/wallets like @metamask_io & @Ledger.
@metamask_io @Ledger 3/ The sacrifice-free exchanges designed to obviate this risk while providing a range of extra benefits:

🟣 Self-custodial
🟣 Deep liquidity
🟣 High-speed
🟣 Advanced order types
🟣 Much more +++ πŸ‘ˆ

In 1983,a young talented guitarist was kicked out of his own band. Just before the band was about to sign a record deal, he was kicked out. No warning,no discussion, they literally woke up him up one day handing him a bus ticket home. He has put in lot of effort but now ... 1/n Image
When he was about to taste the success, He is thrown out, had he missed his one and only shot? He couldn't control his tears on his way back home in the bus. By the time, bus reached his destination, he made up his mind. He decided to start his own band,
he is so determined that his new band would be so successful that his old band would forever regret their decision. He spent months focusing his band, recruiting far better musicians than his old band, wrote dozens of songs and practiced religiously. His anger fueled his ambition Image

Start #trading?

A Thread.

So you want to make it as a trader, in short time?

I am going to sound discouraging but that’s how the reality will look like. I am just going to point out the main bumps ahead of you.

1) Methodology

It’s a ocean of info and you’ll be overwhelmed instantly. Most probably duped for many months /years by tips/paid services, TV channels. It will take years to find out what works for you, considering your mindset and temperament.

2) Capital - If you’re still left with capital, which will be insufficient in most cases, it is likely that you’ll never go through a cycle of trades. So yeah again chances of quitting here is very high, not trading itself but a methodology, you believed or developed.

#Gaps in #trading 101

Gap is essentially a change in prices levels between the close and the open of two consecutive days.

Gaps can be classified as under:
1. Common Gaps
2. Breakaway Gaps
3. Runaway Gaps
4. Exhaustion Gaps

#Gaps in #trading 101

Common Gaps

These gaps are common & usually get filled quickly. "Getting filled" means the price action at a later time usually retraces at the least to the last day before the gap. The trading volume on such days is generally low / below average.

#Gaps in #trading 101

Breakaway Gaps

They occur when price action is breaking out of their trading range or congestion area. A good confirmation os such gaps is if they are associated with classic chart patterns (eg. Cup & Handle, Darvas Box, Ascending Triangle etc).

Disadvantages of CFD Trading
Although the benefits of CFD far outweigh the drawbacks, still as an investor, you must understand the risks involved
This thread looks at the disadvanages and pitfalls of trading CFDs.
#cfds #forex #cfdtrading… Image
Are you surprised to see leverage as a disadvantage? It is like a double-edged sword! On the one hand, it allows investors to open positions with a smaller initial deposit, but at the same time it carries an element of risk. Even a little price movement can wipe you out
Long-Term Costs
Generally, CFD trading is a cost-effective method of investing, but if you leave the position open for long periods, it may become a big burden. Effective management is crucial to take advantage of CFD trading, and investors should consider the additional costs.

What should be the right qty per order to minimize costs. A thread with an example below. All data backed.

Problem statement - Short 100 lots (7500 qty) of Nifty Options. Should I push 100 lots or 10 lots or 1 lot per order?

#Options #Trading #Execution #Optimization

Assumptions -
- LTP of option = 100 (ATM)
- Slippages = Varies from ~0.1% for 1 lot to ~1.5% for 100 lots (reasoning below)
- Brokerage = 20/order (Zerodha)
- Other charges (STT etc.) = 1400 (rounded off from Zerodha brokerage calculator)

Slippage % logic and data -

Wrote a code that measures slippage% for all strikes at 1 min interval. Sample attached (see last column). So if prices are not moving fast (non-breakout strategies), it will be 0.7% on avg for 30-40 lots (single order)

Morning! 5 with Fitz

1 - Algos will sell (a bit) but don't let that fool you
2 - $AAPL $TLSA > my targets
3 - #Congress > what a joke!
4 - Move over #Nasdaq, #hongkong tech's here
5 - @MotoGP - one of the most amazing finishes you will ever see

In to win!!

Good morning and trust you had a fabulous weekend!

Big open this morning but likely to fade a bit. Don't let that fool you. Algos are programmed to sell a little when they hit new highs.

Stay the course, focus ... "best not rest!"

2 - $AAPL $TSLA and more - my targets on each and why

Super fun @Varneyco this morning on @foxbusiness πŸ˜€

There will be ups & downs but the real bet is digitizing your life and information, not selling widgets

$GLD $SLV Uno de los factores que han desencadenado el rally del #oro y la #plata es la oferta monetaria M2, provocada por el QE infinito de la #FED y demΓ‘s bancos centrales, por lo cual, no puede considerarse como una burbuja dichos rallys. Abro hilo. #TRMX #trading #Traders
Otro factor es que los bajos tipos de interΓ©s en el mundo, han generado que los #bonos y los #stocks suban de precio y ello ha jalado a los #Commodities pero sobre todo al #oro y la #plata a tener fuertes subas. #TRMX #trading #Traders #trade #Trader #BOLSAMX #SP500 #NASDAQ
Esos 2 factores (QE y tipos de interΓ©s negativos) ademΓ‘s de generar apetito por riesgo en los inversores, generan una mayor liquidez en la economΓ­a, lo que a su vez genera #inflaciΓ³n y recordemos que los metales preciosos se revalorizan con la inflaciΓ³n. #TRMX #BolsaMX #trading

This weekend is for me to celebrate. I recovered all my 3 years loss including corona. Let me tell my story. I was doing great till 2017 end. Was part of the small/mid cap rally and in nutshell paid SCG of nearly 3 lakhs. And then things turned around badly 1/n
Then from there I was part of the crash of small/midcap. Portfolio was fully into small stocks which cannot withstand the headwinds. I jumped from one stock to another like a monkey and intensified the loss. 2/n
Then came the election I decided to take advantage of the situation and to recover my loss, I indulged in futures and options during election time. my political predictions were wrong and made huge loss. To put into perspective, I cagr of my 13 years of market became 1-2% 3/n

Today was a testing day for option sellers & robustness of their systems.

Glad to have done reasonably good & ended in green😊

How did I end up in green via option selling inspite of the crazy fall and spike on put side premium ?

At around 12 pm, I had 22200 straddle and was in a profit of 35
points per lot.

But around 1:30 pm markets fell sharply and I had an otm buy stop on 21700 PE at 145 (I keep these orders in the system to protect mtm if there’s a big directional movement)

The protective order got executed at 145 and BNF also broke 22000 (crucial support)

I sold additional calls of 22000 at around 220 with a SL as system had turned bearish.

Share trading involves buying shares (stocks) of publicly traded companies and the hope the price would go up and you make profit.
But if you're new to investing, it's not as easy as it sounds.
Let's see some of the examples.
#invest #trading #shares… Image
1. Good deal. In 2006 Google bought YouTube for $1.65 billion, fast forward to 2020 and taking into account that YT makes up about 10% of Alphabet Inc revenue, it would be worth around $100 billion now. That's staggering 6,000% ROI in just 14 years.
#alphabet #goodinvestment #ROI
2. Bad deal. On the other hand, in 2013, Yahoo acquired Tumblr for $1.1 billion, fast forward just 6 years, and in 2019, yahoo sold it to Automattic for $3 million.
Whether you buy a company or just shares, it's important to do your research.

#Traders path #Futures & #Options

1: Understanding the game

Trading is not much different from playing poker game or betting on various other things.

It’s just a structured game where rules are not made by anyone, but needs to be followed by everyone in game.
Understanding those rules and adjusting yourself is a continuous process which will never end. As #SEBI would keep on changing rules.

The important thing to understand is any thing in life if we want to succeed we need patience and dedication.
A 2 hour webinar or 2 day course can’t teach you about #CapitalMarkets or #Trading it’s impossible.

Personally i feel have around 40-50% knowledge about capital markets after more than 12years of trading experience.

You may often hear professional and successful CFD and forex traders talk about a trading plan. What what is it? Do you really need one?
The short answer is "yes", you need a trading plan.
In this thread we cover a few fundamentals.
#trading #cfds #forex… Image
1. You need to set up your trading targets. What do you want to achieve trading forex or CFDs (or any other financial market)? You need to set realistic and feasible objectives and adhere to your plan throughout your trading.
#forex #cfd #target
2. Once you're ready to trade, surely you'll need to employ some strategies, they might be short and long term strategies depending on the time you have but it's vital to come up with the strategies you'll be using for your CFD trading.

Why is it that some CFD traders manage to make profit consistently when most of the retail traders lose money?
Are experienced traders better at research or sticking to the trading plan?
A few essential CFD trading tips in this thread.
#cfds #trading Image
1. Have a trading plan.
What is that you want to achieve? What instruments you want to trade? Do you set out your entrance and exit levels before you enter the trades? It's important to have a trading plan and stick to it no matter what.
#tradingplan #plan
2. Don't over-leverage.
Keep your leverage in check. If you have only enough money to risk 1 trade then you're definitely over-leveraging and just one bad trade will wipe you out. Ideally, you don't want to use more than 5% of your funds on any one trade.

With so many trading investment and trading options available to retail clients it might be a bit confusing and overwhelming.

Spread betting is only available in the UK and Ireland and it's tax free.
