So, here are 8 freely available tools that help day traders to manage their intraday trades.

1 - Gocharting

Gocharting is the first Indian web-based charting platform built by two traders for the trading community.

They are the first group in the world to build ‘web-based' Market Profile (TPO) charts. Besides, they also provide most of the charts (Japanese Candlestick, Kagi, Renko, and Point & Figure) and all the indicators for all the free users.

Market Profile is a technical concept with a unique charting technique developed by Peter Steidlmayer in 1985. It assists day traders in reading the current market trends as it unfolds.

It helps day traders to locate the footprints of the big players (called OTF – Other Time Frame participants in Market Profile) so that they opt for the trades in the direction of the big players.

Currently, any free users can access the market profile along with the volume profile for all the Indian indices and stocks.

Besides, many essential features are also available for free users. One such helpful for day traders is ‘Multiple Charts in One Window.’

Traders can access up to 4 charts in one window. It is highly beneficial when a trader has to monitor multiple charts for his trading setup.

For paid users, it offers Market Profile (tick) chart, a Volume Profile (tick) chart, and Order Flow charts, advanced tools for day trading.

One can get Open Interest (OI) data for free on the Gocharting platform by connecting with their broker.

You can check this Twitter Thread to know more about it.

You can also watch this video to learn more about it.

Tip 1 - Don't lose more than 10% of your capital on any trading day.

2 - NSE India Option Chain

Many day traders deal with options. There are two types of options trading:

  1. Options Buying

  2. Options Selling

Options buying is straightforward.

If a trader thinks that the security price will rise quickly, he can buy Call Options (CE) to make profits. However, time decay (Theta) works against buyers, i.e., the Call Options (CE) premium will fall along with the time even if the price stays at the same level.

Hence, many day traders try different Option Selling strategies. Short Straddle, Short Strangle, Short Butterfly, and Iron Condor are some of the popular options strategies.

In this case, option chain data is crucial. It helps traders check the liquidity, price, Implied Volatility (IV), and Open Interest (OI) details of each specific strike price option.

NSE India provides the option chain details in a beautiful format, as shown above. Most day traders use this information to manage their trades.

Tip 2 - Profit in intraday trading is inversely proportional to your ego.

3 - Ninja Trader

Ninja Trader is a powerful trading platform for day traders. It has many charting, analysis, and backtesting tools, which immensely help day traders.

Tip 3 - Learn how to ride your profits. It is the most challenging task in day trading.

Intraday traders have to access live future charts of indices or stocks to identify their setups and manage their trades.

5 - Chartink

Scanning good stocks for next-day trading is an essential process for day traders.

Whether traders use breakout trading, price action trading, or candlestick patterns based trading systems, manual scanning of the stocks as per their setup is time-consuming.

Chartink is known for its screening ability of stocks based on many different criteria. The below image shows a simple example of a 15-min breakout scanner that filters out all the stocks showing breakout in the 15-min candle.

Tip 5 - If you see other traders' profit screenshots, it will trouble your emotional balance. So follow your trade plan.

Most traders give up too soon on intraday trading.

They put 1-2 months of effort into learning the trading game and expect huge returns. When they don’t see any substantial results, they either take more risks or quit trading.
