Following points will explain how traders can win over Mutual funds
1)Traders biggest advantage is his "flexibility". he can flit from trend to trend at a moments notice. The big funds cannot. This point alone should convince you to trade your own money in the stock market. If a stock falls by 10% get out and look elsewhere. Do not waste your time. go looking for the next trend.

2) FOCUS: Notice how the big funds hold 100+ stocks? They may as well simply buy index contracts. You want to narrow your focus down to the top 0.25% of stocks and trade them. Buy big %'s of your portfolio in the VERY best stocks. the ones about to explode right now

3) Play both sides of the market. Most funds are 100% invested during all market cycles. so they do O.K in a bull market only to get slaughtered in a bear market. As a private trader you can be an aggressive bull in a bull market and play it from the short side during those bear markets.
So Productive trader need not lock his money in MF and looks his own funeral doing nothing , perticularly in BEAR MARKET.

Hi SVKUM,

Agreed. If you are actively trading then really no point in looking into MF unless we are in Bull market and you want to shift some % of your profits into them for sort term basis.
All my ELSS were giving 2-3 times profit in early JAN and now I fear to look at their NAV. I couldn't encash due to 3 yrs locking rule. I have no idea what their worth will be at completion of 3 years.

Regards,

Saikat

Hi saikatnandy


I think I also made same mistake with ELSS. The timing of getting into it was totally wrong. I cannot encash. Still one year left.

What I realised is use Elliot wave to invest in Mutual fund it rips good profits.

Hi Mayur,

Now Elliot Wave for MF will be too much for me Twisted Evil
So requesting you to share the time best for putting money in MF - if I happen to have some money that time - I will put. Sundaram Paribus Select Midcap used be my most fav MF. Now don't know - haven't tracked MF since Jan

Regards,

Saikat
