A remarkably strong week marked with a successful Budget and good support from the international markets, the indices were in seventh heaven all through the week
STAIRS our index trading product did crazily well this week and ended the first 5 weeks of 2021 with super abnormal gains. The new year has indeed started well
The strategy has already accumulated 6800 points on BankNifty and near 1700 points on the Nifty in 2021
Trend followers ruled this week ! On a 3X leverage, capital of 10L became 18L in BN and 13.5 Lacs in Nifty futures. These numbers are as real as it gets includes transaction costs as well. If one wishes one can run a slower version on lower leverage also !
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 37+% and 58+ % gain on capital in NF and BN respectively in 2021 so far.
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.
More details on the options models are here. Options are a part of the STAIRS program
We will soon launch a webinar series to explain STAIRS and also have one on one video sessions to iron out your doubts.

The Weekendinvesting Smallcases were a huge success this week.
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.
The ATH portfolio is now up 131%!! this FY and Allcap becomes the second strategy to cross the 3 digit mark at 101.7%!!
All this is available at anybody’s fingertip with just 2 clicks a week!
Unbelievable, isn’t it !!!

The selection of the smallcase can be based on
a. Sub Segment of the market : Mi25 for smallcap, Mi_All_cap for all round diversification OR LTCNX 200 for large caps only
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.
More smallcases on existing products like Mi30 and Mi50 will be added by end of the quarter along with new smallcases like Mi SWING
