During market opening and closing time Daily share market opens at 09:15 am and closes at 3:30 pm. During market opening timeFrom 09:15 am to next 20 minutes or even till 30 minutes the market movements are not catch able. Markets moves very fast in up and down direction so it becomes difficult to take trading decision during this uncertain time especially for new comers while the experience traders manage to get some profits during this session. So it is advisable to stay away during this period and keep watch to gain experience so that you can trade on this once you get experience in future. The second such time slot is market closing time. During market closing timeThe same market volatility is expected during closing time at 3:30 pm. Most of the trades have to square off their trades before market close due to use of margin amount so there is probability that market may react volatile so it is important to stay away from 3:00 pm to 3:30 pm. This note is again for new comers who are unable to judge the market movements. The experience traders make good money during this ending session. “Money saved is money earned” It has been observed that during this period some of the traders fail to square off their trader due to failure of electricity, hanging of computer, hanging of trading terminal due to large pending order queues at the exchange or at your broker’s server and many more reasons. So your pending trades may fetch you some penalties, heavy losses or some interest rates (depends on your broker) applicable to margin amount used. So take appropriate and sensible precautions during market closing time. Please note - These parameters or factors may or may not happen and this is just the precaution note.
During opening of European markets It has been observed, many times, that Indian share market reacts to opening of European stock markets. Daily European stock markets open at 1:30 pm.
It has been observed that If European markets open positive and extend further gains then Indian markets too react positively. For example if Indian markers are in red then there are chances that they may recover partially and if they are trading in positive then there are chances that they may extend further gains. The same thing may happen if European stock markets open in red and further continue their downtrend. And mostly the effect of European markets may happen to Indian share market after 2:00 pm or even before, so appropriate trading strategies should be applied. Please note - These parameters or factors may or may not happen and this is just the precaution note.
During the expiry period of derivative expiry week It has been observed that Indian share market becomes volatile and uncertain during derivative expiry week. The derivative contract expiry date is on last Thursday of every month. Indian share market becomes volatile (no certain direction) during this week because traders has to square off their contracts. For example - If trades have bought the contract then they have to sell them and if they have short sell contracts then they have to buy them. Traders have to square off their current month contracts and if they want they can buy or short sell next month contracts so due to all these activities markets is not able to take any certain direction and goes into volatile phase. Due to this reason trading becomes difficult especially for new comers but experienced traders are able to gauge the market then they can make good money. The volatility activity becomes more prone as the expiry date approaches nearer. So new traders are advised to take appropriate steps to save themselves from this uncertain period and once you become experienced then you too can make money in such periods. Some assumptions If the market participants have short sell their future contracts due to bearish market sentiments in entire month then they have to buy them during the expiry period so if the buying happens from all side then there is the probability that market may pull back in Green if it is trading red during expiry period. On the second side if market participants have bought future contracts due to bullish sentiments in entire month then they have to sell them so due to which there is the probability markets may go in red from green if selling starts from all side. Note - The specific date for derivative expiry for every month is mentioned on the home page of www.daytradingshares.com
