3. Watch sector index and study those chart

Jab Nifty isse upar trade Kar ratha to maine ye point se market ka fall calculation kiya tha. Aur fir Nifty 15828.5 se 15721.5 per close hua. Means 107 points points ki fall. Maine iss formula ko FinLearn se sikha hai or fir khud ki ek formula build kiya hai. Accha profit book hua mujhe. Thanks to FinLearn Academy.
