My Intraday Trading Challenge


I have just finished developing my Intraday Trading Strategy and completed Backtesting and Live Testing of it.

To track progress, I decided to share my Trading Performance day wise, every day.

Trading Strategy experts, please suggest any improvements, so that I can further improve wherever possible.

I am starting with a capital of Rs.15000. My goal is to reach Rs.1,00,000 in 1 Year.

Thank you so much @Sunitha

Lets see how it goes.

Hi Vishwa,
100 k from 15 k is a bit aggressive with stocks. I started with 10k and currently i am on 21 k and it took me 3 months and i trade aggresively on Nifty weekly options. I generally have 1 red day with in 5 trading sessions. Happy to discuss trading strategies :slight_smile:

Strategy toh batayi nahi!

Hello Zutshi,

I know I am going a bit aggressive. But I am doing it based on the Back Testing and Live Testing results that I got.

I’m trying to follow a more mathematical approach. Let me try to explain it to you -

Working Days In A Month = 20
Working Days In An Year = Around 220 [ 240 - (~20 trading holidays) ]

My Initial Capital = Rs.15000
My Target Capital = Rs.1,00,000
Capital To Be Gained = Rs.1,00,000 - Rs,15,000 = Rs.85,000.

So, I have to earn Rs.85000 in 220 Days.

It means, I have to earn Rs. 387 / Per Day ( 85000/220)

Now, There will be days, where I’ll not be profitable. And There will be days where no trade will be formed.

Based on Above 2 Factors, I am assuming that I’ll have to earn 85000 in half number of days.

So, I have to earn, 774 Rupees in 110 Days.

For remaining days, I just have to control my losses. I have to stay net At Par.

774 Rupees per day is achievable as per my Risk Management plan and other parameters. I hope I was able to explain my Math in Understandable Way.


Hello @Double_hammer,

Yes, I am doing Intraday Scalping (sort of), where the average trade horizon is around 30 Minutes.

I am using multiple advanced concepts that I learnt in my CMT (Chartered Market Technician) curriculum. To explain it in very easy language, I look for Over-Extended Large Cap Stocks in multiple time frames. I short the stocks which are Over-Extended to the upside in multiple time frames. And Buy the stocks which are Over-Extended to the downside in multiple time frames.

And Yes, I understand It is going to be very very tough. But, I am trying to be as systematic as possible. Rest, let’s see how it goes.

Hello @maddy_Des,

I just explained my approach and strategy in response to Double_hammer 's comment and zutshi 's comment. Please have a look.

That is your logic or philosophy and not a strategy.
Strategy, I mean, with predefined entry-exits.

All the best brother.Stay profitable.Mention your strategy in your next trade and time frame also only p&l does not define anything.

Do with Confidence.

Practically you may face lot of problems. Market will teach a lot.

Face the Setbacks and improve yourself.

Sooner or Later you can achieve your goal.

Don’t loose confidence.



Thank you so much. Yes, market is tough. But I’ll give my best.

@Double_hammer I use RSI Indicator for that matter.

I look for Large Cap stocks where RSI is OB or OS in multiple time frames. I start from Daily, then 1 Hour, then 30 Minutes, then 15 Minutes, then 10 Minutes, then 5 Minutes and then 2 Minutes.

The more time frames it is OB or OS in, the larger quantity I take into my trade. It’s as simple as this. Nothing complicated.

Hello @Anandgowda,

I am glad I was able to explain it in an understandable way.

I use Tradingview Stock Filter for the same to filter such stocks. I am planning to switch to Zerodha Streak’s newly launched SCANNER very shortly. I am currently testing it. You can try it too at

The best part is, @Streak is also active in tradingqna forum. You can ask them queries about this too.

The math looks great ! But to make 700 + per day will still be difficult with stocks with a capital of 15k .You will have to use a lot of leverage . Your accuracy has to be more than 70% and you will have to quickly book profits and be even quicker in taking losses when the trade goes against you. On my good days i make 1500 + Most of the days i remain between 400 to 600 and on loosing days i loose between 100 to 250.
