Trading Diary 28-05-18 - I earned my first Rs.3200

Today was my first day in real time trading (after weeks of practice).

My father and I have decided we will trade in NIFTY only (specifically in options). We will not be trading in stocks.

We are mentally prepared for a loss of Rs. 5000 per trade. Not all trades will be profitable so the focus is on keeping the loss small and letting the profits run as long as possible.

Today I was long in the morning and bought 10700 NIFTY call options. Position was squared off by 2 pm giving a net profit of Rs.3200.

Given my trade size, the profit is not much. 

This is the 5 minute chart of NIFTY Future. I was long in the second bar. 





This is the order book/position statement of my trading account. The MTM (stands for mark to market and is basically the profit earned).

Sab Ganda Hai, Par Sab Dhandha Hai - Maha Govt Plot Twist

Everyone looks forward to weekends for the simple reason that they get to relax, unwind and recharge themselves for another hectic workweek. But not the Maharashtra Govt. Atleast not this weekend. In between Friday night and Saturday early morning, our State Govt proved to us that if they put their minds to getting something done, they will; even if it involves staying up post their working hours. Hail Politics and Self - Interest!
I guess it's pretty apparent by now what this writeup is going to be about. But no. I won't bore you with that anymore. Instead, I'll include a few links to help you catch up:

I just came to know ALL these products belong to HUL (Hindustan Unilever) and I'm shook

Two years ago my teacher sent the entire class on an assignment as part of our Principles of Marketing subject in which we had to visit different retail outlets and check which company manufactured them. I remember going to one such place with 3 other class mates, with Note Pad open in our phones and discreetly clicking pictures of all HUL products. It sort of felt weird at first because we had never done the picture clicking part before, but slowly got used to it as soon as we realized that the line of HUL products was just never ending. We submitted the assignment the next day and that was the end of the story.


But just yesterday, I opened the HUL website again as part of my semester  VI Logistics subject assignment (yes I do get homework even in TY!). I was surprised by the products that I saw.
