How I lost 75% capital in single trade

The Dumbest trade I can ever do, let’s know How I lost 75% capital in single trade;

Traded Instrument

Weekly Index option, as we can see the below Screenshot from my Zerodha A/c ie;

  1. Index – Nifty Call Option
  2. Expiry – 19th March
  3. Strike Price – 11000
  4. Traded Quantity – 1500

Strategy to Initiate Trade

Nifty is at 9800 and all the Call Options were down by 70% and Nifty is trading with a 10 point move and I thought I can make a quick 0.7-1.3 point move.

So, I placed an order and in the next 15 mins I reached 0.5 points above my Buy Price and placed a Sell Order for 3 points above my buy price and this is the mistake as far as this trade is concerned.

loss of 13k


Reasons for Loss of Rs. 13000?

  1. Not sticking to Plan ( Plan is to get 5%-8% and close the trade )
  2. Over Confidence ( Going against Trend)
  3. No Stop Loss ( Bad Behavior Buddy )
  4. Not Executing Rescue Plan ( Implementing Plan -B)
  5. Doing multiple things along with trade ( Not every day is Yours)

Showing no discipline for what you are doing and probably being rude which led to capital erosion because doing multiple things at the same time and these are no way related to each other in any which way. This is how i lost 75% of capital in single trade & I hereby admit that this is the

Dumbest trade ever I can do.

I would like to tell one thing, I also trade on other accounts and I have multiple Income sources. So this is not a big deal for me. Beginners should do only 1 lot (1 lot = 75 Quantity) till you are comfortable with all the risks involved because this trade consists 20 lots ( so Quantity is 1500 here – you can check above)


Looking forward to not repeat these pitfalls and making sure everything goes according to plan if it doesn’t work then go for Plan – B. I’ll discuss what is my Plan – B in another trade blog.

Until then, this is Rushi. Happy Trading!

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind
    me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?

    slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any
    feedback) – it’s still in the works.
