A Trading Strategy is a plan for buying and selling stocks designed to generate a good return on investments. A good trading strategy should be consistent, objective, quantifiable, and verifiable. Trading indicators are mathematical calculations, which are plotted as lines on a price chart and can help traders identify certain signals and trends within the market. A trade setup represents the total number of trading conditions that need to be satisfied before we consider entering a trade. The four types of basic trade setups are: Continuation, Reversal, Range-bound, Break-out.
These 10 Trading Strategies can be used for both Bullish and Bearish Markets by learning these strategies, investors and traders will be able to hedge and arbitrage their positions/investments in the markets. The strategies are delivered in the live market environment that covers the study of market movements. The idea behind this course is to enable an understanding of market movements, positional and trading strategies so that the candidate can analyse financial instruments and trade in them effectively and efficiently. After learning these strategies, the learner would be able to create strategies themself.

A Bollinger Band is a technical analysis tool defined by a set of trendlines plotted two standard deviations (positively and negatively) away from a simple moving average (SMA) of a security's price, but which can be adjusted to user preferences. Bollinger Bands are a highly popular technique. Many traders believe the closer the prices move to the upper band, the more overbought the market, and the closer the prices move to the lower band, the more oversold the market.
Bollinger Bands were designed to discover opportunities that give investors a higher probability of properly identifying when an asset is oversold or overbought.
Stock scanners are screening tools that search markets to discover stocks that meet a set of user-defined metrics and criteria for investing and trading.
The learner can modify stock scanners to detect the best fitting candidates that meet their set filters. A stock scanner can go through tons of stocks almost instantly to find the best matches to their exact criteria. This streamlines the time-consuming and energy-draining task of finding new trading opportunities, making the process more efficient.
The learner can learn how to use a technical stock scanner to find stocks that make all-time highs on significantly high trading volumes. The learner can also get any other information they need and get every stock that meets their defined criteria quickly.
Momentum indicators are technical analysis tools used to determine the strength or weakness of a stock's price. Momentum measures the rate of the rise or fall of stock prices. Common momentum indicators include the relative strength index (RSI) and moving average convergence divergence (MACD).
Moving Average - A moving average is a statistic that captures the average change in a data series over time. In finance, moving averages are often used by technical analysts to keep track of price trends for specific securities.
RSI - RSI measures the speed and magnitude of a security's recent price changes to evaluate overvalued or undervalued conditions in the price of that security.
Fibonacci retracements can be used to place entry orders, determine stop-loss levels, or set price targets. Fibonacci retracement levels—stemming from the Fibonacci sequence—are horizontal lines that indicate where support and resistance are likely to occur. Each level is associated with a percentage. The percentage is how much of a prior move the price has retraced.
The relative strength index (RSI) is a momentum indicator used in technical analysis. RSI measures the speed and magnitude of a security's recent price changes to evaluate overvalued or undervalued conditions in the price of that security.
An RSI divergence occurs when the price moves in the opposite direction of the RSI. In other words, a chart might display a change in momentum before a corresponding price change. A bullish divergence occurs when the RSI displays an oversold reading followed by a higher low that appears with lower lows in the price.
The RSI can do more than point to overbought and oversold securities. It can also indicate securities that may be primed for a trend reversal or corrective pullback in price. It can signal when to buy and sell. Traditionally, an RSI reading of 70 or above indicates an overbought situation. A reading of 30 or below indicates an oversold condition.
The Volume and Price Action Trading Strategy helps the learner to analyze their trade properly. It helps to understand when to execute a trade and when to take the positions based on volume and price action. Volume is added (starting with an arbitrary number) when the market finishes higher, or volume is subtracted when the market finishes lower. Price Volume action and how it helps us to make better decisions around screening and as an early warning indicator for our investing decisions.
PRICE and VOLUME are two fundamental building blocks of all the transactions that happen on the stock market. And most importantly they leave a footprint on transactions of all market participants and indirectly their behaviour and decision points.
Swing trading is a style of trading that attempts to capture short- to medium-term
gains in a stock (or any financial instrument) over a period of a few days to several
weeks. Swing traders primarily use technical analysis to look for trading opportunities.
Typically, swing trading involves holding a position either long or short for more than
one trading session, but usually not longer than several weeks or a couple of months.
This is a general time frame, as some trades may last longer than a couple of months,
yet the trader may still consider them swing trades. Swing trades can also occur during
a trading session, though this is a rare outcome that is brought about by extremely
Swing traders may utilize fundamental analysis in addition to analysing price trends and patterns.
Volume and open interest are two key technical metrics that describe the liquidity and activity of options and futures contracts. "Volume" refers to the number of contracts traded in each period, and "Open Interest" denotes the number of contracts that are active, or not settled. Here, we examine these two metrics and offer tips for how the learner can use them to understand trading activity in the derivatives markets.
A sentiment indicator is designed to represent how a group feels about the market or economy. These market psychology-based indicators attempt to quantify sentiment, in the form of figures or graphically, to predict how current beliefs and positions may affect future market behaviour. Sentiment indicators look at how bullish or bearish market actors are and what they are thinking and feeling, which may help forecast investors future behaviour. When sentiment readings are unusually high or low, they may begin acting in a contrarian way. For example, when investors are extremely bearish, that is often a contrary signal to sentiment indicator traders that market prices could start heading higher soon.
An index is a method to track the performance of a group of assets in a standardized
way. Indexes typically measure the performance of a basket of securities intended
to replicate a certain area of the market.
These could be constructed as a broad-based index that captures the entire market, such as the Nifty 500 Index or Nifty IT, or more specialized such as indexes that track a particular industry or segment such as the Nifty Small 100 Index, which tracks only small-cap stocks.
Trading derivatives can be scientific and requires knowledge of various strategies. Yes, various types of traders use different types of strategies to trade in derivatives. This course covers various strategies for trading in derivatives and using them for hedging and arbitrage. Efficient trading in derivatives is dependent on effectively using these strategies.
Technical analysis is all about the analysis of markets and market movements. Technical analysts believe that markets follow a pattern and that investing based on this pattern is the most efficient method of investing. There are some principles and theories to this, and the course covers all about the same. Technical analysis is led by charts and trends and their interpretation to predict markets. This course will give the learner in-depth learning of all these aspects, helping them analyse markets with expertise.
Options are of various types. Trading in them involves a lot of knowledge and understanding of various strategies using which they are traded. Using such strategies, the learner can create a portfolio of various types of options with various combinations to meet their investment needs. This course helps the learner learn all about options strategies.
Technical Analysis, transitions between rising and falling trends are often signalled by price patterns. The first step in learning technical analysis is gaining a fundamental understanding of the core concepts. These core concepts are technical patterns, technical indicators, Technical overlays and the Elliot Wave principle. This course gives in-depth knowledge about such concepts in examining current movements and forecasting future market movements by identifying extremes in investor psychology, highs and lows in prices, and other collective factors.
This course is designed to give the learners a basic understanding of Currency options and the various types available in the financial markets. The course is very helpful for beginners who want to know exchange-traded options contracts and the risk management mechanism followed by the exchanges.
