I did not mean to leave trading or forget all the losses you experienced.

My point of focus is to trade without expecting only profit. When you are looking for “only profit” then you are not respecting the market. You are just going to blame the market when you make losses. This happens when you are not trading the intraday trading rules keeping in mind.

Initially everyone fails. You too. But don’t spend much of your time just thinking about your losses or trading without knowing anything what you are doing.

No matter how much others earn, you need not rush into intraday trading just looking other’s profit screenshots.

Always remember that everyone have different skills and every field requires particular skills. Trading as such.

When you incur any losses which is quite big you can not control your emotions.

You start behaving rudely with your people and relations started spoiling. You not only have the responsibility of building money but building your relations also.

Respect your money, people and time too. Just stay relax while you trade.

This is the most important among all Intraday trading rules.

Formula #1 : Capital management

If you are having people in your family dependent on you then you should be very careful before putting your money at risk. You should never dream in the air, every decision should be taken on the ground basis.

Therefore, capital management is important to you.

Divide your entire capital into 3 parts

  1. Low Risk
  2. Moderate Risk
  3. High Risk

I will list out all the sources of investment with its categories*

Low Risk investment sources

  • Investment in Real Estate and REIT
  • House Properties
  • Debt Funds like Corporate/Government Bonds
  • Bank Fixed Deposits
  • Mutual Funds
  • Endowment Insurance
  • Assets like car rented out (Fully insured)
  • Income from Professional Business $
  • Consistent income from YouTube channel or a website blog $

$ These are not investments particularly but you should keep in mind while deciding money to invest

Moderate Risk Investment sources

  • Shares of individual companies or ETFs
  • Family’s traditional business
  • Business which have high competition
  • Lending money to local businesses or in friend circle

High Risk Investment sources

  • Trading in Intraday
  • Trading in Futures and Options
  • Investment in companies having micro and small Capital

*These sources may change its category from person to person. This listing is just for the sake of understanding.

Intraday trading is very much risky. So, you never ever take big risks in intraday just by looking towards others.

It is advisable to maintain 1% of the whole capital for Intraday trading. This intraday trading rule not known by most of the traders.

If you have house property of Rs. 80 lacs and some investment in shares of about Rs. 20 lacs and other investments such as Mutual Funds, Bank FD, etc of about Rs. 30 lacs.

Then you have total capital of Rs. 1 crore and 30 lacs

Then you should maintain capital of ₹1,30,000 for Intraday trading.

Now coming to second formula.

Formula #2 : Trade Management

When you do not have control on your losses you will face unpleasant surprises of losses.

Never ever underestimate the power of market. Market is supreme.

  1. Maintain Stop Loss of 0.5% in each trade position of you Intraday capital
  2. Keep your daily limit is 1% loss of your Intraday capital
  3. If you are losing daily for 5 days (trading week) then you are losing just 5% of your entire Intraday Capital which is normal and easy to recover
  4. Do not trade in that entire month if you lose 5% in the same month
  5. Have Risk Reward of 1:2 in every trade. (That means, You should expect profit of two times of your risk.)
