“The four most dangerous words in investing are: “This time it’s different”.”

Hello guys, welcome to Lets do some TRADE. In this Article we will try to discuss what’s the best time to enter share market for intraday trading or what time indian stock market opens?. We all know that we have at some point of time this question in mind while entering the trade. So lets finally discuss this. Indian stock market timings:Both NSE and BSE trade between 9 a.m. to 3:30 pm on weekdays and on non public holidays,we all know this.
There is an initial 15 minutes pre open trade session in both NSE and BSE. But why this 15 minutes of session is introduced? because there can be scenarios where in market news might bring heavy volatility in the market and market may shift to sudden highs and sudden lows.
Both the cases can bring heavy losses to the investors. To cut down this volatility, a short window of 15 minutes is introduced in the beginning of the trade in both NSE and BSE.
“The stock market is filled with individuals who know the price of everything, but the value of nothing.”
Only Nifty 50 stocks are traded in this session. So for you and me the actual market opens at 9:15 A.M and remains open till 3:30 P.M. So dependency on Global market: Yes!!!! Indian market and Indian companies not only have their business in India but also globally. So global market timings affect Indian stock as well.
Asian markets: Asian markets open approximately at 5:30 A.M. This includes Tokyo market Hong Kong Shanghai and India finally opens at 9 A.M. So by the time Indian Market opens, it is already in impact of other Asian Stock Markets.
Then comes the European market. This opens at 1:30 P.M according to Indian standard time. So while out Indian trade sessions are ongoing.,This market opens at 1:30 P.M. . So it can have a huge impact on our market and market can be seen oftenly., Changing heavily during this time frame. So it is advisable not to trade or avoid trading between 12 to 2 PM.
“Games are won by players who focus on the playing field – not by those whose eyes are glued to the scoreboard.”
Then comes American market. American market opens finally at 7:30 p.m. So it is out of the trade timings of our market but definitely have impact which can be seen the next day. So to summarize, what is the best time to trade for intraday trading. Wait for atleast 15 minutes after the market opens. I mean wait till 9:30 AM. Because market has a large volatilities initially and you can get trapped. Allow the market to settle .Look out for potential trades for one or two hours.
This is because most of the stocks reach the possible targets and it becomes too late to trade if you trade after 1 or 2 hours of the market opening. This is because intraday trading demands a little volatility as well. You cannot trade if the market is not moving. Avoid trading between 12 PM to 2PM as European market open at this time.
“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”
They can bring large volatility and sudden reversals can be seen in the market. You can look out for other trades post 2 PM because market again settles down a bit after European market opens. And avoid last minute trades. If you know the market is going to close at 3:30 PM, kindly avoid trading after 3:10 PM or 3:15 PM.
Close your trade within 3 PM I would suggest. I know there are traders who trade through out the day and make a good profit for themselves. But everyone cant be perfect. But you can stick to best possibilities for yourself. Just keep finding what works best for you!!!!.
