Finally after two weeks of indecision the market gave up the bullish trend and corrected through the week. Bank Nifty however recovered a bit ahead of the closing in the last session. It was expected that ahead of the budget some profit booking was expected and the Emerging markets funds also saw a retreat with FII selling all through the week.
STAIRS our index trading product did very well this week and ended the month of Jan 2021 with super gains. The new year has started well and mostly all models are in green.
The Options4STAIRS models work off the STAIRS signal so that you only spend a few mins a day at designated time to look into the markets. No staring at the screen all day!! Our options strategies have broken the myth that simple strategies cannot yield results .
As can be seen from the table above just simple option buying yielded 20% and 13 % gain on capital in NF and BN respectively in Jan 2021.
The key to all trading systems is to have a tight control over the position size and to reduce the same as we go into a drawdown. Many accounts which are not well funded will not be able to reduce position size and they should wait out or add funds. If you are unable to deal with the volatility which can happen to anybody, it is best to reduce leverage, reduce position, go from Model 1 to Model 2 OR move from futures to options.

The Weekendinvesting Smallcases were a mixed bag with minor losses but nothing majorly given up.
These are all long term strategies that will create enormous wealth in each upswing and then maybe give some back in the downswing and repeating this process again and again achieving the compounding effect. With patience and grit to follow strategy over ups and downs over the last nearly five years it has been shown that much superior CAGR returns are possible than the benchmarks.

b. Activity specific smallcase like Mi ST ATH which chases all time high stocks
c. Or more passive strategies like NNF10 and NG5050 which are monthly rebalanced ones best to replace index investing with or for asset allocation.
