What is Stock Market?

A stock market, equity market, or share market is the aggregation of buyers and sellers of stocks (also called shares), which represent ownership claims on businesses; these may include securities listed on a public stock exchange such as NSE, BSE or MCX, as well as stock that is only traded privately, such as shares of private companies which are sold to investors through equity crowdfunding platforms.

The reason – Why invest in Stock?

  • Everyone cannot run own business. But one can become an investor for other successful business and generate multi-bagger return for the future prospects.
  • To beat inflation, earning more than FD interest rate.

Buying a share

Do not choose MIS. It is risky option to make or lose money within a day. Incase of MIS, any purchased or sold shares must be squared off before 3:20 PM to avoid penalty.

Things to keep remember

  • Never break your FD or borrow money to invest in fomo. Instead, it’s better to keep aside 5% of your monthly earning for doing manual investment or automatic SIP like recurring deposit.
  • Stay away from the penny stock or a company with decreasing profit, high Debt or NPA.
  • Diversify portfolio in the multiple sectors instead putting lump-sum in one company. This is critical step to reduce risk.
  • Do not sell stock in panic because of 1-2% decrease in price.
  • Trail your stoploss to save profit, and enjoy the ride.
  • Learn to follow the technical chart, delivery reports, not just news as it can be biased.

Further, you can learn from these great resources.

How much capital I need as a beginner?

At least 1000 would be a decent starting point.

Imagine, you have less capital and don’t want to take big risk.

I prefer NIFTYBEES etf in such case which can be purchased via Zerodha.

If you have any question, feel free to ask. 🙂
