Intermittent periods of higher volatility are covered by applying event-based margins,” stated the report while adding that between January 2014 and March 2019, total initial margin applied was about 20% and 14.65% on options and futures contracts respectively.

Your Professional Decline Is Coming (Much) Sooner Than You Think

..Again, the woman: “Oh, stop saying that.”

I didn’t mean to eavesdrop, but couldn’t help it. I listened with morbid fascination, forming an image of the man in my head as they talked. I imagined someone who had worked hard all his life in relative obscurity, someone with unfulfilled dreams—perhaps of the degree he never attained, the career he never pursued, the company he never started.

At the end of the flight, as the lights switched on, I finally got a look at the desolate man. I was shocked. I recognized him—he was, and still is, world-famous. Then in his mid‑80s, he was beloved as a hero for his courage, patriotism, and accomplishments many decades ago.

....For selfish reasons, I couldn’t get the cognitive dissonance of that scene out of my mind. It was the summer of 2015, shortly after my 51st birthday. I was not world-famous like the man on the plane, but my professional life was going very well. I was the president of a flourishing Washington think tank, the American Enterprise Institute. I had written some best-selling books. People came to my speeches. My columns were published in The New York Times.

But I had started to wonder: Can I really keep this going? I work like a maniac. But even if I stayed at it 12 hours a day, seven days a week, at some point my career would slow and stop. And when it did, what then? Would I one day be looking back wistfully and wishing I were dead? Was there anything I could do, starting now, to give myself a shot at avoiding misery—and maybe even achieve happiness—when the music inevitably stops?

Though these questions were personal, I decided to approach them as the social scientist I am, treating them as a research project. It felt un..

Why credit analysts must keep an eye on the market

In December last year, the media reported that the market regulator was probing how the country’s credit rating agencies failed to spot stress in IL&FS and maintained high ratings till the default on its debt instruments occurred.

The fact that the rating tumbled from AAA to junk in a matter of weeks was a wake-up call for all players in the debt market. After all, should not a rating agency raise timely red flags ahead of a default?

In an attempt to restore faith in the agencies and ensure that they are not caught napping, SEBI implemented some measures. One of them being...

No end to auto blues as lenders reduce exposure

Mounting bad debt in the auto sector has resulted in leading retail banks seeking a high collateral for inventory funding—at times, 100% of the loan—making a dire situation worse for a large number of dealers, four people aware of the development from the automobile and banking industries said on the condition of anonymity.

Lenders are being extremely cautious about extending fresh credit to dealers because the outlook for several automobile manufacturers is bleak, said a senior banker. “The situation is particularly bad for a few manufacturers

Mahindra to observe no production days for up to 13 days this quarter

Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) on Saturday said it will shut production across plants for up to 13 days in the ongoing quarter to adjust to market demand.

The company would be observing no production days during the first quarter ranging between 5-13 days across its automotive and farm equipment sector plants, M&M said in a regulatory filing. “The management does not envisage any adverse impact on availability of vehicles in the market due to adequacy of vehicle stocks to serve the market requirements,” it added.

Different perspective: India has wage problem, not job problem: Mohandas Pai

...."India is not producing good jobs, but creating a lot of Rs 10,000-Rs 15,000 low-paid jobs which are not fancied by degree holders. India has a wage problem, not a job problem," he told PTI.

Also, India has regional and geographical problems, Pai said.

Pai suggested that India adopt the Chinese model of opening up labour-intensive industries and building infrastructure near coasts, besides investing heavily in hitech R&D to meet the aspirations of job-seekers.

Misleading GDP data to create more problems

From a maths teacher to India's leading option seller: The inspiring journey of PR Sundar

From a person who managed to lay hands on his first pair of slippers when he reached the 10th grade to be one of the largest individual option sellers in the country is an inspiring journey. The fact that the person was a teacher for the most part of his life makes one wonder about the hidden potential of this individual.

PR Sundar, a math teacher, learned about options from the most basic source - the stock exchange booklet - that every dealer working in a broker’s office reads. He still maintains that the book is his primary source of knowledge. While the source of information was the same, the knowledge that Sundar could extract from that source was much higher than what most are capable of.

Born in a poor family, Sundar, a post graduate in mathematics, took to teaching as there were few job opportunities back then. A teaching assignment in Singapore helped him save capital to think about returning back to India and starting a business. A strange happenstance brought Sundar to the market and he has never looked back.

A successful trader who earned his spurs in the options market, Sundar continues to teach, only this time the subject has changed to options. But like every good teacher he is more interested in clearing the cobwebs and imparting knowledge, which can remain lifelong, than spoon-feeding strategies.

NSE to remove Jet Airways shares from daily trading

Jet's securities will now be moved to the trade for trade segment with effect from June 28 as a "preventive surveillance measure", from the current rolling segment, which allows daily trading, the stock exchange said in a circular.

"There are concerns with regard to continuity of flow of information about the company which is very vital for the appropriate price discovery in the scrip," NSE said, adding that trading in the stock may not reflect the actual status of the company.

NSE also cited the company's failure to submit its financial results for the year ended March 31 as well as observations made by the airline's auditor as reasons for the move.

Sorry boss, we have stopped redemptions due to a liquidity crisis

..........So typically I will be needing this debt money desperately to buy equities when there is a crisis and equity markets have crashed (now whether I am able to pull it off in reality is a different issue).

The last thing I want is for my debt fund to say that “Sorry boss, we have stopped redemptions due to a liquidity crisis”. Credit funds given their inherent structure have a high probability of getting scr****d up in these scenarios.

So my simple laymanistic reasoning being – why take so much tension for debt returns. As it is equities give me enough of it, but at least the long term payoff is worth the pain

5. From an overall portfolio perspective, the incremental returns mostly go unnoticed

Also if you really think about it, most of us have credit funds as a small portion of overall portfolio. Say Debt is 50% and Equity is 50%. You may have 30% of debt portfolio as credit funds. Now this means it is 15% of overall portfolio.

So assuming you get 1.5% excess returns over short term funds, for the overall portfolio it works to 0.23% excess returns. The effort to reward for this category from an overall portfolio level is too less.

Instead you can focus on reducing the expense ratio of the overall portfolio, which is intellectually boring but easier and more effective.

So make sure you think about the credit fund contribution from an overall portfolio perspective before you make the decision.

So broadly my thesis remains and I will continue to avoid credit funds.

Still want to evaluate Credit funds?

Auto sales go from bad to worse, fall 21% in May

Passenger vehicle sales in India posted the steepest drop in nearly 18 years in May amid weak demand and a liquidity crunch faced by non-bank vehicle financiers, prompting major auto makers to cut production.

Sales fell 20.6% in May to 239,347 vehicles from a year earlier, according to data released on Tuesday by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (Siam). It was the biggest fall since a 22% decline in September 2001 and the seventh consecutive drop in monthly domestic passenger vehicle sales. Vehicle sales in India are counted as factory dispatches and not retail sales.

With retail demand staying weak for several months, some of the top carmakers such as Maruti Suzuki India Ltd and Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd have announced temporary factory closures to trim mounting stocks at their dealerships as well as factories.

The DHFL and mutual funds mess explained in simple words

..Okay so if I give you a loan, I can say that you pay me back interest every year. For five years. But I can add a clause saying if you default on your loans to anyone else, then please pay me immediately. Because I am afraid that if you default on someone else he will come and take your sofa and TV and you’ll have nothing left to pay me later.

So when you do that, you create a covenant that triggers when you default somewhere else. This is a cross default covenant.

Because DHFL has cross default covenants on some other loans, some other fellow will come and say dude, my loan is immediately due.

Derivative traders in India pay up to 500 times more margin, says study by SEBI sub-committee

India is the only country in the world where initial margin charged in the F&O (futures and options) segment consists of three margins -- SPAN (Standardised Portfolio Analysis for Risk) margin, exposure margin and other additional margins. All other countries charge only SPAN margin.

The study also found out that if India followed only the SPAN margin system it would have been good enough to cover the risk for 99.44 percent instances of At-the-Money (ATM) and Out-of-the-Money (OTM) stock option contract. Simply put, there is no need to burden traders with extra margins.

Higher margins result in a lower return on investment (RoI) for a trader. Ironically, an FII who has an option of trading both in India as well as in Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX) has to pay the complete margin in India but only the SPAN margin if he trades the Nifty derivatives in SGX.

How Tasneem Mithaiwala, a single mother, fought all odds to become a full-time trader

.......As far as my intraday trades are concerned I trade on the 1-minute chart as well as on the 15-minute chart. I basically am a price action trader and trade mainly around my support and resistance.

In case of a side market, I trade the 1-min chart but when it is a trending market I move to the higher timeframe and give the trade room to workout.

I always do my homework the previous day and have my support and resistances in place. I wait for the market to come to these zones before taking a trade. But I do not buy at the first instance, I wait for a retest to get in the trade.

There are days when I get an opportunity to take 5-6 trades, but in case of trending days, I sit throughout the day with one single trade. I look for a trade which gives a risk-reward of 1:3 but these trades are rare and have to mostly settle for a 1:2 trade.

Here I take trades with a 1:3 risk reward opportunity. I rarely carry my trades home unless it is a very strong trend and the closing is strong. I have averaged around six winners for every four losses in my intraday trades.

But my biggest gainers come from trading on the expiry days. Sometimes I think why to bother trading on other days when most money can be made on expiry day trading.

Here too the strategy more or less remains the same. Since I am always an option buyer I pick up a slightly out-of-the-money (OTM) option which is closer to a support or resistance which is where I feel the market can go. These trades are always taken in the post-lunch session when the market gives a sharp burst.

Financial Advice For My New Daughter by @morganhousel

I have not become a father but one highly respected person @morganhousel I follow on Twitter has just become one.




Here is his blog post.... awesome read like all his previous posts and worth reading several times over.

My wife and I welcomed a daughter into the world yesterday.

Her only job now is eating and sleeping. But, one day, when she needs financial advice, here’s what I’ll tell her.

It is easy to assume that wealth and poverty are caused by the choices we make, but it’s even easier to underestimate the role of chance in life.

Everyone’s life is a reflection of the experiences they’ve had and the people they’ve met, a lot of which are out of your control and driven by chance. Being born to different families, with different values, in different countries, in different generations, and the luck of who you happen to meet along the way plays a bigger role in outcomes than most people want to admit.

I want you to believe in the values and rewards of hard work. But realize that not all success is due to hard work, and not all poverty is due to laziness. Keep this in mind when judging people, including yourself.


PAGEIND: is it a buy at current levels? fundamental view

DHFL: the problem with fundamental analysis

>>>
Knowing when one is wrong using fundamentals, though, is a very grey area. Depending on the style of analysis employed, the lower a share price goes below its valuation may mean the better value the stock becomes. On the other hand, it may mean the valuation was incorrect to begin with. It's a hard ask for any analyst to amend his or her analysis and valuation in the face of a plunging share price – they are usually only forced do so after the fact and after the monetary damage is done.

However, the main benefit of technical analysis over fundamental analysis is that the charts provide a very specific right or wrong point where protective stops can be placed and monetary losses can be limited.

NIFTY 100 stocks analysis

Top gainers this year



Top losers this year

Where is the bull market?

Just did a scan of all NSE stocks for Year to Date (YTD) performance.

Filter: 20 day average price * volume > Rs. 5 crores per day

No of stocks: 360 out of 1500

YTD < 0% = 160 stocks
YTD 0-20% = 121 stocks
YTD 20-50% = 62 stocks
YTD > 50% = 10 stocks

This means that even as nifty is near all time highs the vast majority of stocks have not moved or still are in the red.

If I exclude the filter, it still means close to 900 stocks from a universe of 1500 are still in the red. Only 4 stocks have doubled this year, total of 28 stocks have given YTD gains of more than 50%.

So where is the bull market?

Why only a few are successful in trading?

.......What the market will do next or what a stock will do next (next being after you have bought it/ or in some cases sold if going short) has no bearing on being a successful trader.

Shocked?! (If I buy and stock goes down, I am into a loss and how is it that it doesn’t matter?)

Trading is essentially taking a probabilistic bet. Whatever be your basis of arriving at the probability, the probability can never be 1 or 0. It falls between this range and that is the risk a trader takes. If his view is correct, he makes money else he loses money. What a good trader doesn’t do is argue with the market – if he is proven wrong, he takes the loss.

Thinking about trading this way takes away the whole pressure to be right about the bet all the time. While taking the bet (or the trade) itself, you know that there is a probability that you could be wrong and if that happens it is not disturbing. What kills most of the traders is the expectation and pressure to be right ALL THE TIME – which leads to fatalities ranging from hoping that it works, going crazy on risk management to losing it mentally etc. (On a side note, twitter is full of people with views on stocks and markets but no skin in the game. If they were to put money behind their views, we may only have one-tenth the traffic on Fintwit.)

Just having the background that the stock or the market can do anything after you have bought – makes it much easier to not let ego or emotion get attached to the trade.
