Thinking in terms of perentage - 5% target for next 2 months - that could be very small amount when i consider my small capital, but if i am consistent for at least 6 months...
Can anybody guide me on Capital required for POSITIONAL trade 1 lot BNF/NF.
That's a margin calculator
Capital per 1 lot BNF positional I would think you may require 1 to 1.25 lakhs/
Aug16 ended in a slight positive note to my ledger with Z60D challegge win with equally thin profit. Good that it came after a 20% disaster to the previous 60D Challenge.
Focussed mainly on PDH, PDL and the opening range with pivot on 3mTF. 30mTF for direction.
Pirce action at the levels and pivots are important. Finding the failure and entering counter trend can give good RR especially in Shorts.
BNF has given two good setups but didn't enter any position today.
Could not stick to one trading plan. Understood that indiscipline is the root cause.
congrats , you won Z60D challenge :thumb:
Selection of instrument to trade is also important for a day trader.
For money can't be made on same instrument everyday. This will make the trader think that there is some problem with his method and he tries to tweak his method and end up in losses.
So how we select the instrument? Previously i used to trade only in BNF. Now i am trying with BN Stock futures. Risk is there but hopefully the SL will save the capital. Using pivot trading with 3m/5m charts.
Status : Capital still down by 30%
