On what should be an ideal strategy for Muhurat 2023 trading, Avinash Gorakshkar, Head of Research at Profitmart Securities said, “Usually, Muhurat trading remains very volatile. As it is a symbolic trading session, we do not see much liquidity on trading Muhurat. So, my recommendation for Muhurat traders is to pick stocks that have relatively higher liquidity versus their peers.”

Profitmart Securities expert said that like Muhurat trding 2022, this year will also be a positive Muhurat trading session stating, “Generally, the market gives positive results before the Lok Sabha polls. As we are going to poll a government new mare next year, I expect this factor to work during Muhurat trading as well.”
