As a value investor I am curios to know how much traders really make buying and selling in the short run.

Please be honest - your truthful feedback is welcome

I started at the beginning of last month as a trader and did about 30 transactions. About 20 were profits and others were losses. I made 6% profit in the first week and 5% profit in the second week but then stopped it because it was stressful and I didn't had much time. (You have to sit in front the computer all the time)

But I think the technical skills I gathered are quite useful for mid to long term investing.

I have to say, as long as I did trading, I managed to maintain my original capital, even though the indexes were going down. As soon as I left it, I started loosing capital. Out of Rs.50,000 capital, now I have about 48,800.

Thanks for your feedback - a few observations from me:

1. Traders should factor in real cost of trades - factor in the selling price at the time of purchasing - due to brokerage fee, tax, cess etc
2. Put a value on your time - charge a notional cost to account for the number of hours you spend in front of the computer
3. Bear market trading is more stressful - be prepared
4. Keep a close track of your capital - losses could rise rapidly and wipe out your profit and income
5. Have pre-determined buy and sell prices based on your target ROE for your portfolio and also to cap losses.

Please feel free to add your own observations

Sometimes it is possible to earn 80,000 in one month with 3 Laks.(I have done it also)

I mostly play with SMLL and SFS these days.. Can make about Rs.200 per day from the amount of money I have. I have made about Rs. 3000 per month approximately. Im doin this while working.. So if someone is watching CSE and mainly do this I think he/she will be able to make more than this.

But Im stuck with CSD and EAST. Otherwise I could have earned a lot more.

My advice : Do not follow rumors. Do your own analysis before u buy stocks. (I purchased EAST and CSD because of a rumor)

An honest truth.. don't be upset with CSD, I also have this @ 14-15 range but I have done some analysis and it porved me I'm correct in my decision so even this goes to 12 I'll keep it.. but u should dispose when it exceeds ur stop loss..

It means that U can double ur portfolio in a year. Indicate whether u r a trader or an investor.

No it means you can do it SOMETIMES. 8% takes a bit of a luck as well. You can't keep up 8% a month throughout the year. Unlike investors traders can incur massive losses as well in the process. You have to account for those losses as well. Allthough I managed 6% in my first week and 5% in my second week, about 40% of my transactions were losses.
