A robust performance in the month of September 2012.

End of September Series and beginning of October Series – What to Expect?

There were very few trades for the month as I took a long break inbetween. Out of the 7 trades, 4 were profitable and 3 ended up in loss. With a starting capital of Rs.30000, the final profits for the month stand at Rs.8877.50

What went right for the month?

The picks initially gave good returns in expected lines and towards the end losses were controlled well and the positions were closed when it was turning against us indicated by the system. This resulted in a healthy return of Rs.8877.5 out of the initial investment of Rs.30000. There were quite a few trades only during the month and we were able to acheive a far greater return than last month and this is also an example of more need not necessarily be good as far as number of trades are concerned.

What went wrong for the month?

1. The expiry trades were not succesful, eventhough the losses were limited well ahead taking cues from the changing system.

2. The EDUCOMP trade was giving a return of around 200%, we failed to cash in the day before and let it expire worthless.

Learnings and how do we move forward

1. We learnt from the last time experience to carefully limit the risk of trades on the expiry day and that paid off well towards the end. We were able to protect the profits as well as the capital on the expiry day by risking only a small portion of the already booked profits.
2. CANBK option proved to be a huge success. Though the 320 option was exit much earlier at Rs. 18.1, it went on to cross more than Rs. 100. A greater return expectation can be set in options during the start of the month and towards the end, the return expectation need to be curtailed as we saw with EDUCOMP.
3. There were quite a few technical glitches faces here and now with the Live system, Position details and they have been rectified. As we progress, the goal is to eliminate all such glitches.

How does it look like for the October series

As we enter the October series, there is still some amount of bullishness left to begin with as pointed by TripleInt’s option trading system.
