Educational Explainers - Lead Lag Effect - NIFTY

Last week we looked at what Indexes are (Over here).

This week we are investigating the lead-lag relationship between Spot price and Future prices in NIFTY.

So what does academic research and years of observing the market tell us? The verdict is out..

Announcement - Educational Explainers - Trading Indexes - NIFTY


Over the past few months, we received several emails asking us to explain the whole idea of “Market Internals”, and in our attempt to explain things we typically had to start with the basics.

This series is a conversation, where Kavitha is asking all the basic trading questions you would ask and my response to them is an attempt to help you ease into what it means to trade the markets.

We are calling it Explainers, as the word suggests we would get down to the brass tacks of why the Market Moves. Our attempt to explain would be evidence-based and we would avoid conjectures as far as possible.

In the initial few topics you would have access to, is a three part explainer on trading indexes in India.


While we have a set of topics we think will add value, to both absolute novices and developing traders, understand the nuances of trading indexes, do suggest other topics that you think NiftyScalper should add to the mix.

Happy trading!

Here’s the first one from the series - What is an Index and how do we trade them?

Podcast | Dr Brett Steenbarger | Three Powerful Techniques for Changing Your Trading Psychology

Those of you who follow the blog would know that I am a big follower and fan of Dr. Steenbarger and his Traderfeed blog.

A few days back I came across this Podcast which highlights several things one needs to understand and be reminded of when developing one's trading skills. Do listen to the the full episode, he answers several relevant questions.

I particularly agree with the idea of "Pattern Recognition" and "Analytical Ability" that he stresses upon. Something that I have shared in the blog here and here.


Podcast | CWT | Jeff Davis

This is one of those podcasts in the CWT collection that I may have listened to perhaps 10 times and made notes every time.

So here is how I recommend you listen to it, 

1. Listen to the podcast 2. Make notes of what he is saying 3. Think of why does he say - what he say's 4. Compare it with your Day trading strategy 4. Repeat.

Happy listening!
