Do’s during Muhurat Trading

Trading stocks during this auspicious Muhurat Trading session is thought to bring prosperity and fortune. Here are a few do’s of Muhurat Trading:

Learn before you venture

You don’t want to dive deep into the trend of who’s investing in what stocks. It’s a safer option not to go with the herd mentality. Instead, research the companies whose stocks you wish to buy. Ensure that their finances are sound, they hold good fundamentals and have the potential to give profitable returns in the long run. Talk to the advisors if need be and only then shortlist the stocks you want to buy during the Muhurat Trading session.

Long term investment

Investments made on this day are believed to bring good fortune. The stock market tends to be more on the bullish side during the Muhurat Trading session and hence stocks could tumble in the near future due to profit booking. This is why it is better to focus on long-term investment. 

The key point to focus on is the sustenance through stock buys. The strong overall performance of the business may provide good returns in the future, in case you consider investing for the long-term.

Invest in blue chip stocks

Instead of taking speculative bets, you could consider investing in quality stocks because they will add strength and stability to your portfolio.

Blue chip stocks are one among this lot. These are stocks of mature entities that are financially sound. They are relatively less volatile and have high valuations. And these are also popular among investors.

Diversify portfolio

One thing that well-groomed investors vouch for is to diversify your portfolio. Muhurat Trading session is open only for an hour, so it is better to research the stocks that you want to invest in beforehand. 

Make sure that the stocks you have added to your watchlist are diversified. Meaning, they belong to different sectors. This helps mitigate the risk in case you had put all your money in one basket.

Don’ts during Muhurat Trading

Below mentioned are a few points to avoid before investing during the Muhurat Trading session:

False impression

Don’t invest with the mindset that you will reap good returns if you invest during the Muhurat Trading session as there is no guarantee. Because the returns totally depend on the company’s fundamentals and historical performances. Instead, as mentioned earlier, do your homework regarding the companies and then make a decision.

Avoid options trading

Options are mostly used for hedging purposes and high leverage segments. They also have less trading time and liquidity constraints. Due to these challenges, you may keep them for some other day and trade in stocks during Muhurat Trading.

Don’t fear near-term corrections, go long

Since the market is bullish around the MT session, don’t refrain from investing due to inflated stock prices and high valuations. Also, don’t fear near-term corrections. Instead, buy new stocks in the Shubh Muhurat and hold them for the long-term.

Stay away from rumours

Don’t give in to rumours, whether they are positive or negative. Invest in stocks only after doing thorough research about the companies’ performances and other key metrics.

Getting carried away

Do not get carried away that there is a promised future prosperity. The Muhurat Trading session does not guarantee a handsome return on investment. The returns are completely dependent on your understanding and homework about the companies.

  1. Here’s what I deduce from Mahurat Trading – it has nothing to do with any good omen. All it really is is an opportunity to take advantage of the herd mentality and invest to see your valuations grow temporarily; so, when folks book profits, the prices sink for us to buy the stocks that do.

We'd love to hear your thoughts 🥰
