# How to calculate average in intraday trading of NSE/NIFTY equity shares?

I am beginner in intraday trading of NSE equity shares in Zerodha. Sometimes I have failed to calculate the average when I trade the same shares multiple times during the same day. For example:

During morning hours:

If I bought 1,000 number of HDFC shares at 500/- and it rose to 505/- in 5 minutes and I sold, my profit would be (1000*5=5000).

During afternoon hours:

If again I bought 2,000 HDFC shares at 490/- and it rose to 494/- in 10 minutes and I sold, my profit should be (2000*4=8000).

So the total profit for the day is 5K+ 8K= 13K but my calculation is wrong. I do not see 13K. I see something less than that. What is the correct calculation?

If possible explain for below scenarios as well

## Scenario-3

• "I do not see 13K. I see something less than that." What do you see? Please provide the exact trades, what you calculated as the profit, and what was reported. Commented Jun 11, 2020 at 9:56

For example if i bought 1000 number of HDFC shares at 500/- and it gave a spike of 515/- in a 5 minutes, i sold. so my profit would be (1000*5=5000).

1,000 x 15 = 15,000 not 5,000

If again i brought same 2000 number of HDFC shares at 490/- and its gave spike of 494/- in 10 minutes , i sold. i expected my profit should be (2000*4=8000).

2,000 x 4 = 8,000

The total is 23,000
