For an investor to make money in this big market with tens of hundreds of stocks, there are a number of aspects to be considered in order to clinch success and walk out being the ‘Smart Investor.’ For instance, a day to day Β  graphichal analysis is a very important thing to be considered.

Stock Market needs Smart Work more than Hard Work.

In order to succeed one needs to act smartly rather than working hard and spending hours in front of the computer with the ‘ticker’ going ‘Green’ and ‘Red’ and reacting to the fluctuating prices of the stocks held in your portfolio πŸ™‚

And keep one thing in mind, Tips and rumors regarding the shares wont help you much. A close watch is to kept on the stock news side by side tracking the developments happening in the company.

That is really great that you learnt a lot from your friends… I suggest that step by step, start implementing it and you may even start with a small amount… like I did in the starting (Rs. 2-3k per month)

And also, it is better to start early.. remember you are losing by not entering now… πŸ™‚

And, the game you are talking about is MoneyBhai powered by Moneycontrol.com. Apart from this, rediff also provides a share bazaar game… Many other big names have introduced share bazaar games which work in the real time… and one may get to learn a lot from this… I myself used to specially go to a cyber cafe (did not have internet at home at that time) 2-3 years back… as I fund it really interesting and then i invested real money in the market some 1 and half year back πŸ™‚

Learning how to invest October 14, 2010 at 10:42 am

Learning how to invest in stock market is not as difficult as we might think. We need some common sense, and a willingness to do some research. The first step is to do some research. Begin by reading some personal finance and investing books. Subscribe to some magazines devoted to the subject. Money magazine is an excellent source of common sense advice for the average person. The Internet is also a great source for information. There are many online sources for classes. Most of the classes for the average investor are free. Take advantage of any of these that we can.It might also be a good idea to make an appointment with a fee only advisor.This will cost money, as they charge an hourly rate. But, this can well be worth the expense.

Very rightly said Chirag…. In share markets, one should consider the point that there is nothing like tips… One should set their own targets and act accordingly…
