Stock Market Basics You need to know how the stock market works, learn basic terminology (order types, bull market, bear market, entry / exit charges, stock symbol), learn to read financial statements , balance sheets and the meaning of important ratios (debt to equity, book value, market capital, etc.) Before starting to invest in the stock markets, a person should have a clear investment objective. An investment goal is a plan you make for yourself and your family about things you might need or want in the short term, long term, and in retirement.
Most importantly, never invest all your savings in the stock market as they are subject to market risk, go for safe investments like FD, PF, insurance policy, mutual fund, NHAI government bond, etc. They are much more secure and will act as a hedge in bear markets.
Don’t Ignore Expenses As you pay brokerage and securities transaction tax on sale / purchase, capital gains tax in case of profit, you should select a brokerage firm according to your purpose investment.
If you want to invest for the long term, then a full service broker would be right for you as they provide a lot of additional services that would be useful for long term investors and discount brokers are good for intraday trading as their transaction rates. are very mooing.
Control Your Emotions Don’t make hasty decisions based on overly optimistic corporate rhetoric, irrelevant news, rumors and choose actions through the herd mentality. Think wisely and make a logical decision based on facts.
Never Predict the Market A wise investor stays away from speculation and makes investment decisions based on statistical data and fundamental facts about the company.
Most novice investors try to make a profit by thinking that they can predict the market, that they can buy low and sell high without having to research the company or financial statements, etc.
In trading or investing, this thinking process never works in the long run, you may be successful 10% of the time, but you will surely fail 90% of your trading journey.
Technical Analysis Fundamental analysis is essential to success on the stock market.
If you know that a particular company has strong finances which are inherently powerful, then you can certainly think of buying its stocks in long term lows because you know that company will grow over a period of time.
You should never believe the advice of Youtubers or social media influencers, always go with people who have 10 to 15 years of experience in this industry.
Again, it is very important that you don’t blindly believe anyone, take advice, do your own research, and then invest only when you are convinced of the tip.
