    Why the positional analytical methods are not followed in intraday analysis?

    Positional analytical methods are based on demand and supply, but the sentiment and momentum of the day defined the price movement within the day. Hence the positional trading analysis can not be used for intraday and the market direction, impact on global market, sector contribution, the stock align with index are the parameter needs to be analysed for intraday trading. And the timeline available for the analysis is very short compared to positional and decision needs to be taken faster on the selection of the stock and the target price.

    Intraday price movement is witnessed mainly due to market sentiment and analysis is done using the top down approach.

    Positional analysis is done considering several other factors to predict the price movement of a stock, the analysis method followed here is the bottom up approach. The stock is selected and chart is plotted by taking various data and the price movement is predicted. These may or may not work for a particular day where the sentiment prevailing in the market might be different when compared with the stock that we have analyzed, so it is not advisable to use positional analysis for Intraday even-though sometimes it might be right as well.

    In Intraday the analysis is done to to predict the target price that has to be achieved in the same day, whereas in positional analysis we expect the price movement to happen over a period of time i.e, a week or month.

    In Intraday we need to trade along with the trend of the prevailing market.

    Intra day analysis is based on overall sentiment prevailing on a particular day
    In intra day time frame for profit booking is not even one day but it is from the time of ENTRY to CLOSING BELL of the market on that day
    Where as in positional analysis the time frame is UNLIMITED
    IN positional analysis intra day price fluctuation/other markets movements need not be taken in to account

    Positional analytical methods are useful only to earn or maximize the profits in the long run and it is applicable only for it but whereas in Intraday we have to trade within the day by making faster decisions as the market is purely based on the market days sentiment.Thus Positional analytical methods cannot be used on the Intraday markets.
