Three Lessons & “INSIGHTS” of 2022

Greetings ‼️

Bye bye 2022…

Of course, we cannot say that we are closing Calendar Year 2022 on a very high note but comparably what we had gone through during the year we can safely conclude (say) that working has been satisfactory but subsequent improvement is required too.

Below are three Insights – which we never had seen / experienced in the last 22 Years of our actively watching the Market.

First Lesson or Insight:

In spite of all kinds of the Bad News, for example: War News, Rising Inflation, Depreciating Rupee, relentless Selling by FIIs, Global Markets’ Down Trend, Border Disputes & Issues, Rising Interest Rates- still NIFTY50 could find the bottom and make New All Time High.

Agreed that on bad news Market did see Sell off but quick to find the bottom also.


What actually had happened in the Last 5 Quarters of Calendar Year 2021 & 2022:

  • October 2021 – All Time High 18604
  • December 2022 – All Time High 18887.60

In between recorded 52 week Low has been at 15183.40

That is not even 20% at Index Levels from October 2021 High. 


Agreed Stocks had seen / experienced strong beating but even then overall Trend remained range bound since last 5 Quarters.

Which means those who were Buyers (die-hard bulls) and Trades without Stop-loss only made money in Calendar Year 2022.

The Indian Stock Markets’ die-hard bulls are now dependent on SIP Money. Shaking off their confidence will definitely have to be a domestic issue / matter.

Global Matters impact FIIs and not to the SIPs. 🙂🙏🏽

Second Lesson or Insight:

Most fundamental companies of Indian Stock Markets had fallen 30%, 40% from their respective All Time Highs, for example – TCS, INFY and still trading at & near their respective 52 week lows.

Whereas Good Story Tellers like ADANIENT have tripled during the same period. And still trading near 52 week Highs.

Another Example: PAYTM listed on 18 November 2021 at ₹1955 levels and today trading around ₹550 levels – 75% value lost.

What an irony – now the same PAYTM management is bringing up the Buy back offer at ₹810 levels. Mind you there is no rights issue, bonus, and/or split took place in the last 13 months of listing.

Is it not qualified a kind of the white collar crime ⁉️


No one ever made a decision because of a number. They need a story.

Daniel Kahneman, in Michael Lewis’ “The Undoing Project

Government Stocks are no better, for example: LICI – listed on 17 May 2022 at ₹918.95 levels and today trading around 680 levels – 30% value lost.

  • The government sold its holding of LICI to Retailers at 950 levels.
  • Old timers should relate the same good story telling to COALINDIA of 2014.

Barring IRCTC none of the other Government IPO ever made retailers happy.

Making this derogatory statement based on a limited number of examples Pardon me in advance, if I missed out any other name. 

And, Rumours already started doing the rounds about unified insurance licences, mergers and acquisitions of other subsidiaries / other government companies with LICI to shore up the Market value. However, even then,

We are waiting to BUY LICI at & below ₹550 NSE Cash levels for long term investments.


Just like our call of Buying “YESBANK” ₹11 a piece


On the other hand the likes of TCS INFY have a proven track record, honest promoters, cash rich, debt free, stable business processes, less depended on government policies etc but they are not trading at their all time high. 

But, the likes of ADANIENT go on to become double triple in less than 12 months.

Shup Up & Keep Talking. 🙂🙏🏽

Third Lesson & Insights:

Above Two Insights are nothing more than a Post Mortem but taking the right decision at the right time is only important.

Few of our decisions are mentioned below, though we could not take advantage of any but still we were spot compared to many other “So Called Experts, Analyst and Market Participants”.


There many more – M&MFIN, TATAMOTORS, AARTIIND, COROMANDEL, INFY, MINDTREE, etc.


There is only one option:

Trade without Capital constraint or say in different way that is – more number of positions so that trading diversified in nature, Follow Stop Loss Levels – Hold on to Positions by Sitting Tight.

Now, we found our way around next Year and thereafter next year And that is not getting influenced by the surroundings because that has not been proven good for the Trading Account and/or performance.

But this is Valid only for the Range Bound Markets. 

More Capital More Peaceful Nights 🙂🙏🏽


Welcome To 2023:

Majority of People are in Stock Market for overnight Success.

And that is why they do Intraday and Options Trading and both is either gambling or insider trading or at times both. We should not be doing either.

Whereas, we fall under the category of minority. You should too. 

Please Treat all the Stock Market Trading / investments just like any other Buying or Selling decisions of yours in any other thing. 

Because, there is hardly any difference between Real life decisions and Stock Market decisions when it comes to MONEY matters.

Our Primary focus is to give you best possible Entry Exit levels given the circumstances (market situations), Profit or Loss is secondary and beyond our control.

That is our limitations…🙂🙏🏽

₹1,70,000 Profit Converted into ₹57,000 Loss 😢😞

Executive Summary: NIFTY BANKNIFTY Futures Short Sell Entry was on Friday 3rd June 2022 @ 16780 June Futures, by Friday 17th June 2022 were in Profit of 1,70,000 (mind you – all in one lot of NIFTY & BANKNIFTY); only to convert into loss on Friday 29th July 2022.


This happened with us for the first time in Rocket Trades’ history of 6 Years that we thought we know all the answers but Market forcefully has changed the Subject itself. Result – Failed Miserably. 😢

We were prepared for Trend but NIFTY50 gave us Range.

Herewith attached the records, please see and help us understand where possibly we went wrong.

Pre-Entry Updates:

We want to clarify once again through these records that we are neither permanent Bull 🐂 nor permanent Bear 🐻. We simply follow the Market Trend by Avoiding Range Trading.

There is no logical explanation for this, Except that what we are and what we do.

Sometimes We may show arrogance, over-confidence, humbleness, flexibility but when it comes to Trading we strictly follow only Pillars’ Strategy and its levels’ and ruthless execution without caring for the end results. In one word follow Discipline, which will always save us from market volatility.

Entry, Exit and in-between:

BANKNIFTY has troubled us a lot. Especially during our Short Sell Holding period, SBIN acted as Strong Wall for the Bears. Because of that, NIFTY50 has shown V shaped recovery from 15183 levels.

Most Importantly, forget the consolidation for few Days, Market has not even spent few hours both at Top & bottom. Market just touched 16780 and came down immediately, likewise, touched 15183 and started recovering. And, that made Permanent Bulls or Bear’s Day.

People like us just remained spectator (rather loser) during this time.

All in all, we need to train ourselves enough to believe in nonsense (I mean volatility) and remain stick to it despite all evidence to the contrary. No Option. No Escape.

Bitcoin, KOSPI, Stock Futures, and News:

We were equally focusing on Global Indices like Bitcoin, Ethereum, NSE Stocks Futures which were either at bottom or were Possible BUY. But since we can not do crypto and NIFTY50 view was bearish, so we preferred to wait for Stock Futures which turned out to be judgemental mistake.

They all performed very-well, but we missed. Bad – Luck. 😞

Anyways, what happened has happened. And now We are waiting for next opportunity, which could be a Short Sell Trade most probably.

SBILIFE, BRITANNIA, APOLLOTYRE, ESCORTS, NTPC, TATAMOTORS, ASIANPAINT, NTPC, IRCTC = Profit ‼

Quarterly Performance – July August September of 2021

During this quarter NIFTY50 moved up 2000pts – and this was one-way rally. No Correction, No Pullback, even after Covid-19, China Uncertainty. Nothing.

Mind you, every single point above 16000 was an all time high.

Here are the Stats: 1st July NIFTY50 closed at 15680 and on 30 September NIFTY50 closed at 17618, highest point was 17947

Back then lots of worries surrounded the market like Historically RICH Valuations, Global Uncertainty including China Crack Down on Internet Businesses and impending Default of Evergrande.

Above mentioned development were making us uncomfortable because on one hand NSE was at New High almost every day and on other hand Global Markets were sending negative feelings.

But, then we experienced the true power of Pillars’ Strategy – “STOP-LOSS” our Plan “B”.
