Just Some Basic Tips for Investing

Recommended Posts

Just some tips on investing that I thought made be useful to someone.

1) Never buy when market is reaching new heights,

in early january and in the next few months when market is reaching new heights one another day, all the analyst were predicting market to reach 32k and more considering all the good news floating in the market(though it was floated).

By now slowly few of them has set the target as around 27k on an average by year end, considering all the bad news because of quarter results. So next lesson is

2) Never blindly follow all analysts.

3) Buying stocks on analysts call, can also be a danger.

An experience is with Havells India, it has vibrant range of products, was advertised well, with projected real estate and infrastructure growht in India it was said to do well and slowly stock price was doing good and crossed 330. Suddenly it was brought down to around 280 and slowly it settled at 260, a drop in more than around 30% from its peak just because of some analysts call i believe .I couldnt see any news on that day and by next day i almost sold at loss to recover my capital as some of the analysts has given bearish call that it will settle around 240-250 for a long time.

4) Buy heavily when market is bleeding, set a target for stop loss if it still bleeds.

5) Never fear to sell at loss

6) Try to be invested for more than 2-3 years to get all the benefits of bonus shares and tax benefits.Accumulate during this time if your stock is extremely good.

Investing can never be a gamble as you take part in the progress of a company and eventually for the country.

 

Enjoy investing :-)

1) Never buy when market is reaching new heights,

 

"Prices are never too high to buy, never to low to sell" - Jesse Livermore

 

2) Never blindly follow all analysts.

 

Jeez... I'll have to burn that one into my brain won't I? :)

 

 

 

3) Buying stocks on analysts call, can also be a danger.

 

Buying stocks can be risky. That's the risky part geddtit? Following anal lists (or anyone) is just the usual stupid human crowd behaviour. See the difference?

 

 

4) Buy heavily when market is bleeding, set a target for stop loss if it still bleeds.

 

:rofl:........................:rofl:.........................:rofl:

 

5) Never fear to sell at loss

 

I'm thinking of cutting my time losses short on this article.

:rofl:........................words actually fail me.. well,I want the word stupidity in the sentence for sure..

 

Enjoy investing :-)

Once again... I am amused...

 

deblov275... Please, just stop writing. The advice you are providing is banal, and in many regards simply horrid. Case in point...

 

To "buy heavily when price is bleeding", is in all likelihood is going to lead to the next bit of priceless advice about "never be afraid to sell at a loss".

 

I know you have read "this" in some book somewhere and then regurgitated "it" onto our shoes (thanks pal), but it can't be from personal experience that you are offering up this bit of sage wisdom.

 

Nothing concerning "investing" should be done with a heavy hand, and further, every decision that you make must be placed in context with current market conditions. As a retail investor, you will never have the "straight dope" on why an equity has fallen out of favor. The truest bit of information you can have is price action, and what the market is telling you about the collective opinion, this should be your major concern.

 

To your faithful readers (gawd help em): There are many different (successful) strategies for accumulating shares when prices are depressed, all are based on sound money management, and reading what the collective opinion is telling you. Please though, stop reading this guy because it's doubtful he will stop writing... save yourselves.

Even if that's what you've been doing for some time now? That seems like a fast way to lose all of your savings!

 

It's like trying to win in roulette by betting on ZERO all the time. Oh, wait, chances to win are still higher!

I'd say another tip would have to be, know what you're doing. It would be a good idea to get into a room or such, to learn how other people are thinking, and about what the indicators are saying, like with the flowshark live room, it's free, and thats good enough for me!
