Full Time Trading or a 9 to 5 Job?

I receive a lot of Messages over my Social Media Platforms stating whether one should Drop out from a Job & become a Full Time trader.
Also I come across many Advertisements over the Social Media promising to leave a Job and become a Full Time Trader.

Let me put my Views on this:

Trading is a risky Business which comes with No Guarantee. While it might Seem easy to just sit in front of a Laptop and make money in Trading it's not that simple when it comes to Practical Implementation.

Traders less than a Capital of ₹5 Lakhs should never jump into Full Time Trading & leave your job. There is a Proverb in Hindi ( Naa Ghar ke Naa ghat ke). You will be left Stranded.
Traders not having any Experience, no Edge should never become a Full time Trader as and when they step into Trading.

A regular paying job offers much more stability than trading. There is no guarantee in stock market, please remember this. You could incur profit or lose depending on your knowledge of the subject. Stock market is a key to build a long term future and with that comes lot of risks as well.

No Matter that there is Rain or Sunshine , on every first week you will get your Salary in your Job. In Trading , you might not earn for Few Weeks or you might earn a large amount in a few days or even you might lose some Money. 

Leaving a Job and Trading Pressurises your Mind which makes you compulsive to earn Money. As far as I know a Compulsive Trader can never WIN.
It requires a Calm and Patience mind to succeed in Trading.

Conclusion :

I would never suggest any Person who is just Starting out to get into Full time Trading.
There is no need to sit in front of your Systems from 9.15 to 3.30 if you want to become Profitable.
There are Many Strategies which can be Implemented and earn 5-6% a Month while doing your job.
Full time Trading requires certain Edge over others , risk taking ability & a large Capital.
So , do not fall for Advertisements claiming they can make you Profitable from Monday Morning.

Try to Create Multiple Streams of Income in your Life , not to Break the Current One's.

I am Into Stock Markets from past 11 Years we have clients all over the World. I trade with a Large Capital as well.
I could easily leave Everything else and focus on Stock Markets.
Why am I Pursuing Chartered Accountancy?
Answer is I want an Additional Income Source. 
I want an Additional Security. It will also Expand my Capital.

Just being a Trader only profits can expand your Capital , having multiple Streams of Income expands your Capital in other ways & help you to generate more Returns.

In my Circle , I can show you 5 Doctors who are Successful in their Life , 5 Chartered Accountants who are Successful in their Life , 5 MBA's who are doing good in their life .
Can you show me 5 Technical Analysts / Traders in your Circle who are Successful? 
Surely not , so try to Balance both your Trading as well as your Job Life.

Hope this Clarifies your Doubts!

1. U.S Markets closed higher on Friday. 2. Right now , dow futures are lower. 3. Asian markets are mixed. 4. SGX Nifty is up 30-50 Points. 5. There's no point discussing Global markets today. 6. As we are dealing with our own local issues as of now. 7. The talk of the town is Adani Group. 8. Every stock Market participant during last 2 days have not spent as much time with their wife /gf /husband /bf as they have spent on researching Adani stocks. 9. They shouldn't have wasted so much time in research and should've spent their time with loved ones. 10. As Ultimately my Pre Market report would clear all. 11. Now , the Adani stock price has gone below the FPO price. 12. FPO price is in the range of 3100-3200 and stock price is around 2800  13.

Also over the weekend Adani has come up with a 450 page report addressing one by one the allegations made by Hindenberg.  15. I haven't

Pre - Market Analysis (18th August 2022)

U.S Markets closed Flat Yesterday. Asian markets are mixed. SGX Nifty is close to 17940 right now. Yesterday markets broke out of 17900 and now are closer to 18000. 18000 is important as 18000 CE has the highest open interest. Highest amount of calls have been written for 18000 CE strike price. Plus round figures always act as psychological resistance too. Today is the weekly expiry and as of now the range is 17800 to 18000. 17800 is a strong support level and 18000 might act as resistance. Markets will gain steam once 18000 is taken out. Today could be a side-ways expiry. But nothing can be said as markets can always surprise you. IT Index has crossed 30k. Sensex yesterday hit a landmark of 60k. Sensex and Nifty both are now just 3% away from all time highs. So this isnt just a Bull Market , it's a raging Bull Market. India VIX closed below 18 yesterday. Bank Nifty is close to important levels of 40k. Once these important levels are taken out then we move towards all t

Pre - Market Analysis (14th September 2022)

U.S Markets closed lower Yesterday. Dow Jones & S&P 500 crashed 4% each. Nasdaq crashed 5% Yesterday. SGX Nifty is indicating a 300 point massive gap down today  Asian markets are lower. Reason is the U.S Inflation data which got released yesterday. Inflation data arrived was at 8.3% . This Data was higher than the expected data. Market wasn't expecting Inflation data to be above 8%. But this data shocked the markets. Yesterday Dow futures were higher till Inflation data was announced. They were higher by 200 points. As soon as Inflation data got announced it spooked the markets  U.S VIX rose 15% Yesterday. Right now Dow futures are slightly higher. 17800 is a strong support for Nifty. It this holds we can expect fall to reduce. Fall shouldn't be drastic if Nifty holds 17800. Yesterday many traders had longs as Nifty closed above 18k. All these traders will be chopped off due to this gap down. Nifty might Trade between 17700 to 18000 today. stockmarketadviso
