    open, high ,low wonderful technique sirji.this is expected from you since long. i read first time on sri manikandan’s webinar where he explained the excel formula also.thanks for help to small traders with this useful and simple technique.
    what is bothering is time taken to scan nifty 50 stocks and then midcaps50 and then to implement your decisions quickly,as at same time nfty and bnk nfty intraday traders and commodity intraday traders /news based trade ideas all scramble for attention in 1 st hour only.
    rgrds and thanks sir.

  2. Which time frame do we have to try this strategy? Any time frame?

  3. Sir, Your free NSE stock screener gets the feed from Zerodha or Sharekhan?

  4. Sir, Can this approach be used in Spanish stock market?

  5. Dear Sir,
    Does your strategy work on KLSE?

  6. today there are some losses right?

  7. will it be applicable to FUTURES also.?

  8. Hello Sirji,
    in the NSE stock screener one more important column is required which is Close price ( previous day close). This is important to check how far the stock has opened from previous close ( up or down ) though you have column 8 for it but still this field is required.
    Also do i need to download this excel or need to check it everytime on your website.

  9. We r thankful to you to share your knowledge with us. Indeed it’s a great strategy. Sometyms the data in your screener is not accurate. if possible, kindly make a video with live trading with the screener. I am sure, most of people doubt wil get clear. Thanks

  10. How do we shift stop losses? If for example we r in buy position and stock is going up how do we shift stop loss? Will it b close of previous candle?

  11. Dear Indrajit,
    Range break means next candle closing above/below previous candle’s high/low or next candle moving above or below previous candle’s high or low?

  15. Does this strategy stand the test of time? Or like other strategies falters after sometime?

    • Pranay, if you are looking for a holy grail, definitely, this is not one. From your comment, it looks like you change your strategy after every few days. Plz stick to a strategy and apply some good money management if you want to get success in stock market.

  16. Hello Indrajit,
    I am fairly new to intraday trading. So pls excuse if my question is silly.

    I clearly understand the Open=Low strategy to buy stocks. Buy Open=low stocks and sell with 2% profit.
    But i dont get the Open=High strategy. How could one sell the stock if he does not hold it? Also why would we buy it in the first place, if the strategy says we are going for a loss.

  17. Dear Sir, you mentioned profit target is from 1.5%-2%. Is that the percentage of the stock price? Or percentage of capital employed? I hope it’s not percentage of stock price, for example stocks like HEROMOTOCO has a LTP above 3k, 2% of that would mean 60 rs, and catching a 60 point move in intraday seems too good to be true. So can you please clarify?

    Thank you

    P.S., I’m a beginner in trading so please pardon me if I have offended you

  18. Sir we should use any other filter with this strategy, i mean if the stock has move 1% to 3% higher in first 5 minute candle that means now there is very less seller available.So it give good result. Can you let us know we should use any other filter ot not, If yes then please let us know which filter i should use

  19. Is this – open high low strategy – applicable for NIFTY also for future trading?

  23. Hello indrajit sir you done really a great work for people like me. First of all a big applaude for that.

    Sir my querry is i use your NSE STOCK SCREENER after 9:25 so i get the open high low stocks for trade but sir my concern is after select stocks can i add my setup for that stock to yrade??

    • Karn, once you get the stocks to trade, you can enter them and if needed hold till 3 PM too. Can apply some filters, like if the short term and long term trend are up for a stock it is good to buy and vice versa for short. Also, OH stocks below yesterday’s close are good to short and OL stocks above yesterday’s close are good to buy.
