Aneesh emailed me asking how you can pass the entry for Intraday Trading for Stock Market in Tally.

Though he had in total 3 questions and in this video I have covered only one of it.

In the next video, I will cover another 2 of his questions.

So his first question was:

  • How to pass an intraday trading entry in Tally?

Before I explain everything, let me tell you that intraday entry in Tally is very much easy than you think.

Yes, it is by far the easiest entry that I have explained for all other stock market videos that I have created.

Okay, without wasting yours and mine time, I present you the video of intraday trading.

What is intraday trading

If you do not know what intraday trading is, then don’t be shy.

I even do not know everything. 🙂

I’ll explain you what intraday trading in a simple and easy way.

Let’s say you bought 100 shares of Reliance at 10.00 AM and sold the same 100 shares for a profit of ₹100 at 02.00 PM.

This is what is called intraday trading.

You buy shares and sell the same shares on the same day.

On the other hand, if you sell the shares which you do not have and buy those shares on the same day, that is called short selling in intraday trading.

The word in itself clears the meaning.

Intra means within and you and I both know the meaning of day.

So it clearly means Within Day Trading or in simple words trading within the day.

This was explanation for the basic intraday trading and what it is called.

Now let’s see what is to be done for passing the entry.

Creating Intraday Profit & Loss Ledger

Intraday Profit and Loss Ledger can be created under Capital Account if you are an investor in stock market.

On the other hand if you are a regular trader or speculator in stock market, you can create intraday profit and loss under Income or Expenses.

Why Income OR Expenses?

Because at the end of the year you would not know whether you would have total intraday profit or intraday loss.

You have to check out the position of intraday profit and loss account and if it is loss you can show it under Direct Expenses and if it is income you can show it under Direct  Incomes.

So, it does not matter whether you choose Income or Expense at the time of creating ledger.

Just check the position in the Balance Sheet and alter the ledger at the end of the year.

On the other hand when you are an investor, you do not have to worry about which group to choose.

Because, you have to choose Capital Account.

If you have profit, the ledger will show positive balance and else the ledger will show the negative balance.

Positive balance means Profit and Negative balance means Loss.

Technique behind the Entry

The technique behind this entry is very simple.

In Intraday trading at the end of the day, you square up the positions.

Now for those who do not know, squaring up means equaling the sales and purchase at the end of the day.

For example, if you buy 100 shares and sell 100 shares, it is called squaring up and if you do the squaring up in the same day, it is called intraday squaring up.

So, this technique which I am going to show you today is based on the the squaring up.

At the end of the day, we do not hold any stocks and therefore there is no need to enter them in Tally because eventually there will be no stock in your balance.

We will just pass the entry for the profit or loss and other charges such as brokerage, taxes and so on.

This will save the time because instead of passing the entire entry, we are only passing a single entry for recording brokerage, charges and taxes.

  • After the narration is written, press Enter and save the entry and you are done.

After you have passed the entry, we can easily check it in the Capital Account in the Balance Sheet.

Here is the entry of ₹100 showing in the Capital Account in the Balance Sheet.

This is a pure profit of ₹100 showing up in the capital account in Tally.

If you are not an investor and a trader, there is just one simple thing you can change to write the accounts as trader in stock markets.

Remember the Intraday Profit and Loss Account is under Capital Account?

That is because we were passing the entry as an investor.

If you are trader, simple change the Capital Account with Direct Expenses or Direct Incomes.

This way, Intraday Profit and Loss will start showing in the Profit and Loss Account instead of Balance Sheet.

It is the real catch between trading and investing entries in Tally.

Just change it and you will be a trader or an investor.
