Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Satyam (SAY)

Late last year I made some good money on SAY. I happened to have got out the day (one day!) before the scandal broke. A friend was not so lucky and lost thousands in his overnight position.

Lately this stock has been on the rise again.

Please register on to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

It is a well known company with a lot of employees and a lot of contracts. I haven't been keeping up with how many of those contracts they lost after the scandal, has anyone else been looking at this?


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

well overall looks like satyam has been saved. there has been reports of customer leaving etc but overall things are not that bad going by media reports.

btw satyam has been taken over by tech mahindra.

Not sure about the fundamentals, but is that a wedge or am I seeing things?

Futures Edge on FIO
I don't dig into fundamentals too much but it appears the street was virtually pricing in bankruptcy after the scandal. The price action as of late seems to be taking bankruptcy off the table. I'd possibly look for a pullback to the 20 SMA with an oversold stochastic that begins to turn up. Then target the gap fills at 4.40 and 5.80 the perhaps the 200 SMA. I think it looks good I'd just want a bit more of a pullback. If it fails to hold the 20 SMA and makes a lower low under 2.50 which should also coincide with losing the 20 SMA then it probably wouldn't be a bad area to stop out. Just my 2 cents.

this is how it cracked when the news came in from 180 INR to 30 odd bucks when the market closed.

the first support came in at 85-90 bucks (stayed there for 5 odd minutes) after the news broke. the current rally seems to fade off at that level only. made a high of 88 and now quoting at 72.
