FAQ answers for Hitpicks - the technofunda advisory

I have been receiving a number of questions on our new Technofunda initiative - Hitpicks. Here are some points that should answer most of the commonly asked questions.

  • All communication will be on email.
  • It is a long-only strategy. All the ideas recommended would be BUY recommendations but if and when we spot an opportunity of a breakdown/reversal in any stock we would bring it to your notice only as a possibility and not as a recommendation.
  • The companies recommended will be companies with decent fundamentals and high liquidity.  
  • The time frame for the given trade will be clearly mentioned along with the recommendation. e.g short term means few days to few weeks, medium-term means few weeks to few months and long term for a few months to more than that. 
  • Ideal allocation to technofunda trading in the overall portfolio should not exceed 30-40% of total portfolio value. One can gradually begin with smaller sums and get enough confidence to bet higher amounts gradually.  
  • We would endeavour to recommend stocks as and when we come across good trade setups and because of that there will be no fixed frequency of recommendations. 
  • A minimum of 12 recommendations would be provided but the number is likely to be exceeded provided markets remain good. 
  • We would clearly mention the course of action which includes buy/accumulate in a price range, stop loss and targets in each recommendation. Whenever targets are achieved or sometimes slightly before that happens, it would be advisable to book atleast partial if not full profits. 
  • Along with technical set up, a brief write up about the fundamentals and possible triggers would be provided with the recommendation. 
  • The recommendations are for delivery based trading on the given time frames, but if someone wants to buy in futures or options, he/she can do so at his/her own risk.  
  • Investors/traders do not need to trade each and every recommendation made.  They can pick and choose according to their comfort levels based on conviction and time frame mindset.


  1. Hi Abhishek,

    Say someone keeps 10Lacs for "HitPicks" aside, is there any guideline/recommendation say max 10% kind off should be put in one reco... or for days to week: 5% and week to month: 10% and month to long 15% .. just thinking as Quant has some guideline ..is there anything you can suggest.. or how one should be proceeding with this?

  2. No, since this is a discretionary system, we can't predict beforehand how many open calls there will be at any time. But safe to assume it will be between 5-10.
