Stock Market Tips to Make Profit in Intraday Trading

1. Research Well Before Buying

Intraday trading for profits requires you to research your stocks well before you buy them. You should have an eye on your favourite 8 to 10 shares and look for price changing events in the company like mergers, bonus declaration dates, dividend payment, etc. You can research about the support levels and resistance levels to make an informed decision.

2. Pick Liquid Large-Cap Shares

 Intraday trading requires squaring off the open positions before the end of the trading session. Hence it is advisable to pick shares of good performing companies that are highly liquid. You may pick large-cap shares instead of mid-size or small-caps. Large-cap shares are highly liquid because of the high trading volumes.

3. Identify Entry and Target Prices

Before you actually jump into the market, you must decide upon the entry level (the point at which you want to buy) and target price (the point at which you want to sell). This can be done by analysing charts and technical details. Once you decide upon the entry and exit price, it is important to stick to your decision. Many times, people lose the opportunity to earn higher profits because they sell at a much lower price than their pre decided price for a nominal increase.

4. Use Stop Loss

 Another best intraday trading tip is to use a stop loss. Stop loss is an order placed with the stockbroker to buy or sell a stock once it reaches a certain price. It is designed to limit a trader’s loss if the price shifts opposite to his expectations. Stop loss ensures that emotions are eliminated and you don’t hold on to a position in case the price shifts down.

5. Book Profit On Hitting The Target Price

 Most of the intraday traders get carried away by the upper price movement. In the greed to earn more, they do not sell their stocks, even after hitting the target price. This leads to high risks and chances are that you might carry forward the position to the next day. To avoid such situation, whenever you think that the stock has a further possibility of rising in price, you must readjust the stop loss trigger to match your price expectation.

6. Avoid Being an Investor

It is a common psychology of traders to take the delivery of shares if their target price is not met. In the hope of price recovery, they shift from their day trading strategy to short term trading strategy. However, it is not recommended as the stocks which are purchased from intraday trading perspective might not be that great from the investment perspective.

 Intraday trading provides higher leverage and decent returns in one day. But if it is not managed properly, it can lead to losses. So it is imperative to have a good understanding and knowledge of intraday trading. The above intraday tips will help traders to earn profits from intraday trading.

 At Indira Securities, we use fundamental and technical charts and portfolio watch tools which help to identify trends. This, in turn, helps traders to earn higher profits from day trading.
