In the commodity and currency derivative segment, the muhurat trading session will take place from 6:15 pm to 7:15 pm. However, trade modification will be available until 7:25 pm to accommodate any changes. 

Significance of Muhurat Trading 

Muhurat Trading 2023 holds immense significance for investors and traders in India, as it marks an auspicious occasion to commence new ventures and invite prosperity into their financial endeavours.

Key tips for successful Muhurat Trading

Do your research: Before participating in muhurat trading, thoroughly research the stocks or sectors you plan to invest in. Look for companies with strong fundamentals and potential for growth.

Set realistic goals: Set realistic investment goals and expectations for the muhurat trading session. Don't expect to make significant gains in a short period. Remember, muhurat trading is more of a symbolic event than a trading opportunity.

Diversify your portfolio: Don't put all your eggs in one basket. Diversify your portfolio by investing in different sectors or asset classes. This helps mitigate risk and increases the chances of earning stable returns.

Keep an eye on the market: Even though muhurat trading is a short session, it is important to stay updated with market news and trends. Keep track of any significant developments that may impact your investments.

Control your emotions: Muhurat trading can evoke strong emotions, especially due to the festive spirit. However, it is important to make investment decisions based on logic and analysis rather than emotions. Avoid making impulsive trades based on short-term market movements.

Muhurat trading has a unique atmosphere in the stock market. It is a time when market sentiment is usually positive, and investors are optimistic. 

However, it is important to note that the volume of trading during muhurat trading is relatively low, leading to increased volatility. Keep in mind that market trends can reverse quickly during this session, so it is advisable to exercise caution and not make impulsive investment decisions.
