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 :-)

Keep writing but stick it in the humour section next time. I'm serious.

 

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!

    • Amazon censored Clarence Thomas PBS documentary during Black History Month… you don’t count as “black” unless you’re a member of the cult The ongoing cancel culture uses authoritarian tactics to deny others an equal playing field. Cancel culture does not inspire equality; instead, it creates the foundation for racism and discrimination to take hold. The cancel culture’s idea of “inclusiveness” and “equality” is achieved through force, social ostracization and censorship and is therefore nothing more than thought control and tyranny. Instead of relying on open debate and persuasion, they leverage manipulation  and shaming tactics to build and control their cult. Whether they are telling whites to be more black, or calling on whites to repent their white privilege, or censoring anyone, even blacks,  who have ‘conservative’ principles, the cancel culture cult wants to humiliate and control anyone they can - ideologically, behaviorally, and mentally. It’s all ultimately very damaging to the culture, to civil discourse, and to healthy human connections and relationships ... just sayin’
    • Date : 5th March 2021. Market Update – March 5 – Jobs, Jobs, Jobs. What Fed Chair Powell did not say that shook up the markets. Wall Street turned sharply lower following Fed Chair Powell’s remarks, even though it was not what he said but what he did not mention that undermined equity sentiment. Specifically, he did not push back against the recent surge in Treasury rates. Indeed, he took attention of the spike and would be concerned by a “disorderly” move, providing tacit approval for the run-up in longer dated yields. Consequently, the stock market was dragged lower once again thanks to rising rates and expectations for more of the same as the economy and inflation pick-up further. Headlines:   The Chair’s comments that he took attention of the spike and would be concerned by a “disorderly” move were not in the market’s narrative. Fed Chair Powell’s perceived benign neglect of the surge in bond yields weighed on Treasuries and extended the recent selloff back toward the highs from February 25. The US 10-year rate corrected slightly overnight but remains at 1.56%. The 10-year rate is currently down -5.3 bp at 0.079%, while yields jumped 6.0 bp and 7.5 bp in Australia and New Zealand respectively. The tech-heavy USA100 over -3% lower intraday, with spill over to the broader indexes. However, the losses were pared in late trading with closing declines of -2.11% on the USA100, -1.34% on the USA500, and-1.11% on the USA30. JPN225 and ASX were still down -0.2% and -0.7% respectively at the close. BoJ’s Kuroda sees no need to widen yield band. He said there is no need to widen the implicit band set for its long term yield target, while stressing the need to keep borrowing costs low to support the economy. Oil prices jumped higher after the OPEC+ meeting decided to maintain current output levels. The USOIL is currently trading at USD 64.60 per barrel. In Europe, key central bankers have also played down the rise in rates and signalled that the central bank won’t add additional measures next week that would reverse the rise in rates. Verbal intervention and a flexible use of PEPP purchases will likely be used to smooth an uptrend that most central bankers seem to feel is essentially justified, given the improved outlook for growth later in the year. German manufacturing orders rose 1.4% m/m in January, more than anticipated Forex Market JPY – USD rallies again – USDJPY over 108.00 EUR –dropped against a largely stronger Dollar- Currently at 1.1947 GBP – at 1.3859 AUD – dipped below 50-DMA again, at 0.7686 CAD –steadied to 1.2660 after 1.2574 bottom GOLD – breaks the $1,700 – trades on 1695 now USOil – Oil rocketed following OPEC+ agreeing to no production increase and to keeping current levels for at least April. USOil at 64.60 up from 59.20 lows on Wednesday Bitcoin – returns to 47K Today: Attention will turn to the US February employment report, hourly earnings, unemployment rate, January trade report and consumer credit is due late in the session, seen rising $10.0 bln from $9.7 bln previously. Canadian Ivey Purchasing Index in the tap as well. Biggest mover – NZDUSD (+0.45% as of 07:30 GMT) Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Similarities between trading and poker, in both, you try to make optimal decisions on the basis of incomplete information. Money management (trading) and bankroll management (poker) are very similar - both are crucial to manage risks. Because in both, you have a luck/variance factor, without the right money management even the best strategy can lead to being broke without the right money management.
    • Forex stands for foreign exchange and refers to the buying or selling of one currency in exchange for another. It's the most heavily traded market in the world because people, businesses, and countries all participate in it, and it's an easy market to get into without much capital.
