How to stay away from gambling like intraday share trading?

You can stay away from intraday trading easily by applying basic life skills within you. Many of my clients told me that they lost money in share market. They have lost money because, they actually invested money in the share market to make huge profits in short span of time by doing intraday trading.

At least, you must be able to take the delivery if you have sufficient money to pay full amount for the shares that you trade. Market experts also instruct you to put the stop loss. Stop loss is nothing but lose, if the share price goes down below the mentioned stop lose price, you have to sell. You will be in sure shot lose when you sell at the stop loss price. So it is always better to stay away form the intraday trading to stop the losses.

I advice my clients to invest for short or long term profits by paying full money. I mean, buy the stock and keep them in your demat account. You can sell whenever you get sure shot profit. If you don’t see any profit, you will get at least dividend every year. You can do little research on quality stocks and invest money in top companies listed in main indexes. Then you will have the benefit of making short term profit

    Great article Raj. I liked your meditation approach while beginning the trade as intraday trading can sometimes be stressful. It is also advisable to not get into intraday trading if you cannot understand market strategies & identify market trends.
