SURVIVA : Need of the Hour !

NSE:NIFTY   Nifty 50 Index
Hey Guys, Happy Weekend & this weekend is pretty long one too. Enjoy the weekend to core & try more charting which makes you better at trading.

So What should be your basic expectation from Trading ?!

To be Billionaire overnight ? yeah guys, millionaire not in our list anymore, too much of crowd in that zone (or)
To make every trade right ? (or) To become professional trader ? (or) To make decent money everymonth ?
Not yet, don't choose your options too soon because the right perception/choice : SURVIVA...

Not just beginners even for those who are in trading for sometime, your main aim should be : To Survive in Trading field. Why Surviva became most important factor here ?

Take a moment away from your charts, come fly with an Eagle's perception over trading world what do you see there ? Institutions, Hedge Funds, proprietary trading firms with money overflowing in their coffers,Big Sharks with deep pockets, Banks & Broking firms with best brains in the world. Not over yet, sharpen your sight, the best brains in the world compunded with advanced codes, HFT strategies which executes trade in fractional seconds, perfect analytical reports on their desk & highly productive team on demand anyday,anytime. That's an exponential combo you can't even imagine of...

What does a beginner/rookie have ? An intel inside PC or Apple maybe, with non-buffering hi-speed internet for you-tubing. No, Don't land on the ground, Be the eagle...Weigh their probability of success if they face (Firms vs Rookie) against each other, watch the battle between former & later, do you think some common'er with no survival instincts or tactics, can survive this battle & come out unscathed ?? The odds are same as someone jumping out of plane without parachute & surviving.

So, You or Me or Someone else can't survive here ? Only if there is Survival Instinct within you. It's broader topic : You should have a Plan, You should have discipline, You should be ruthless against your emotions - kill them, You should have the capital & Most of all you should stop your bleeding in battlefield which is losing capital gradually over time. Stop Trading till you find that way for consistent wins. A simple question friends, will you play a game if odds are stacked against you ? Will you go in for some battle knowing that you don't have plan ? Finally, will you wage a losing war ??? None will do that DOT

Have a Plan n Discipline.Our aim is not to take hedge funds or bigsharks head on, we are not interested to take sides with them also. Then,what else ? We will just wait for the right opportunity to evolve in the Market & We seize them with utmost discipline. That's how SURVIVA works... We will have our part of losing trades, but we will eventually get more consistent winners than losers overtime.

Don't just aim at generating profits in the Markets, SURVIVA is the mantra to sustain here...

Open Discussion's most welcomed...

@rksharma1091, Completely agreed with all your points. During initial stages we all do same kind of mistakes, repeat them, hate those trades n scold ourselves for emotional decisions. The one who don't repeat mistakes will survive but if someone didn't learn from their past mistake, it's rough road leading no where for them.
Your title reminds me of "surviva" song in tamil.

Nice topic.I have learnt many lessons of trading by committing mistakes and paying handsomely. Be it a not booking profits to not managing stop loss, no money management, early exits, going by an instinct and what not.
I have been eaten by the greed and beaten by the fear. :)
You have rightly put that survival need in a mind will create the body and mind to learn and maintain the discipline.

@nirav5, Everyone of Us went through that phase and mistakes you have listed, though it's hard phase, if we sustain through that, Trading will be just another routine activity for Us. Have a Great weekend :)
This is the pointed conclusion @insiderB but just my two cents that even understanding (true meaning or sense) the words you said will require some losses or time spent on the market. What I think is understanding basic terms by a beginner need minimum a year on what actually we are saying and how important is to protect the capital.

New traders who often think roaring and trying harder by muscle is the solution as one needs to quickly recover losses but in actual, doing a trade with single quantity till you have the confidence is the best way to minimize loss and remember courage is always roaring, it's sometimes the quiet voice at the end of the day to quietly say "I will try again tomorrow"...
+1 Reply, Correction: *courage isn't always roaring
InsiderB, You have put it exactly, just a slight part from what I experienced here in Tradingview. There were many PM's asking how to be successful in trading or that they are losing consistently. But when I say - Stop trading or Trade with 1 quantity in stock, don;t touch future or options, they see Me like I'm hindering their growth :) Honestly, this happened manytimes to Me here, Only very few understand the crux on first instance & few after giving some money to markets & some never get it,sadly !
@InsiderB, I myself has also learned it by losing capital so, your above reply makes it complete. Those who will get it later can sustain by bearable loss and those who lose it completely (capital) will only curse... I just hope that more people would get it, we need more equity players to grow up...
