You need to have a certain quality and have the right mentality to become an expert in stock trading. You not only need to overcome nature-to learn about stock trading, but you also need to overcome yourself-to overcome innate psychological obstacles such as deep-rooted fear, hope and greed, and gradually develop the right attitude.
So, what is the right mindset to improve stock trading?Follow these five steps to win:
Every business owner wants to be successful. Properly managing your business and finances is a key to business success. For massive growth and higher productivity, your business should be well-organized.
Check out the top ways that can transform your office into an efficient workplace:
A mutual fund house selects many stocks from different sectors and creates a balanced portfolio. This diversification helps mitigating risk, but it also polarizes your funds. Once a sector gets hit, the total fund value comes down. You cannot choose to shift away from these stocks and have to wait till it gets better. It is always wise to select a bunch of stocks yourself and bet regularly. There are more than, 7000 stocks in BSE & NSE combined. It is like searching a drop in an ocean, tedious but possible. There are several factors on which a stock is screened before qualifying it as a potential multibagger. Given the technological tools we have today, it is a lot easier than it was a decade back. Before searching for a multibagger we must first decide on our risk capacity.
Ask yourself two questions: How much can I save from my monthly income? How much can I save from my monthly expenses?
Spend more time on the second question. Make no mistake, I am not asking you to decrease expenses. Just add a little more to your expense each and every time you spend. In other words, tax yourself. Transfer a percentage of the total expense to your trading account (call it an iTax, myTax or whatever you wish) but do it for every transaction you do. It might sound crazy, but believe me, it works wonders! You can either invest this taxed amount in certain stocks or use it as a risk manager when your stock trades lower than previous highs.
Now let’s search for the drop. Our ocean is made of different sectors and all these sectors are dependent on each other in one-way or other. There is no fool-proof way to find an ever bullish sector. Instead,find a visible problem the world is facing today and the sector which is directly related to solving the problem. For example, pollution is an alarming issue throughout the world, and it is only getting worse day by day. Many governments have already started taking steps to control pollution in every possible way. Hence, we can find a stock which deals with pollution control. On the same lines is cybersecurity. Every business is online and all need to be safe. Companies which offer cybersecurity are going to be in demand, hopefully, in the near future. Next challenge will be to square in on a stock in this sector. That is where fundamentals of a company come in handy. Look at few important factors like Market Cap, Book value, P/E vs Industry P/E and Dividend yield. Check the financial trend of the company. Many growing companies report negative net profit but their net sales might still be increasing which is a positive sign. Above all, this is the credibility of promoter group; make sure you have read their activities in the market. Continue reading
“Disciplined investors built their own empire, others just made money”
Stock markets are for the rich, who can throw their money at anything and wait for a bigger fortune. This is the biggest myth I have ever heard, and also the most common myth among retail investors. In the hindsight, this is the only place where millionaires are made from nowhere. All you need to do is to follow few strategies and stick to a discipline. Among many investment strategies in the stock market, Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) stands out to be the least complicated one. Investing in SIP is like learning to swim. The earlier you invest, the greater your returns in the long run. There are two ways to invest in SIP. Either you choose a mutual fund available in the market or you can choose few stocks yourself and keep investing. It is like paying Pre-EMI. When you buy something and pay EMI, you are actually paying an interest to the bank, thereby increasing the cost of the product you bought. The bank decides the interest and the EMI. Longer the duration, higher is the interest. You cannot skip an EMI and have to pay it on the specified date. If you wish to… close in-between, you will have to pay a penalty. The interest rate fluctuates depending on the market condition.
Emotion plays an important role in many aspects of life. Most of the decision we take depend on our emotional quotient, either directly or indirectly. It is no different in investing. Though it is impossible to keep emotion out of the equation, it is imperative to keep it under control. In fact, the success rate of our buying/selling decision in stock market depends unswervingly on this factor. There are two extremes, between which decision-making swings like a pendulum. Most of us react to these extremes. We are either too excited to calculate the risk involved in buying a particular stock or too depressed to identify the intrinsic value of a stock when it is down. It is always important to take a balanced and an informed decision. Striking the balance is an art. It needs to be practiced over time. There are scores of channels, magazines and hundreds of analysts who often occupy our mind and ride us through different sectors and stocks. It is this ride which takes us to the extremes.

This is the Forth day of course in a series of 7 called “Your financial goals”
Insurance helps you protect what matters most in your life — your loved ones, your assets and your financial future. Insurance takes on many forms, some of which do double-duty as tax-advantaged investment, accumulation or retirement income vehicles, or ways to shape your estate plan.
Do you have the right insurance now?
Assessing your current coverage involves some reflection and review, starting with these questions:
How might unexpected events impact your family’s goals?
How will you provide for dependents if you’re unable to earn income or if you’re gone?
How do you determine home insurance policy coverages and auto liability coverage limits?
Forms of protection
Your financial plan may include a variety of financial solutions, such as cash management strategies, investments and insurance. To protect yourself against unexpected costs or events such as job loss, it’s essential to maintain cash reserves that you can access quickly, without penalties or loss of value. In addition to cash reserves, you might want to consider the following types of insurance:
Life insurance. The two basic types of life insurance are term insurance and permanent insurance. Term policies protect you for a fixed amount of time. Lifetime, or permanent, policies are designed to protect you and your family for the long-term. You can choose from life insurance products and coverage that offer a variety of benefit and premium levels, opportunity to grow assets in a tax deferred manner and more.
Long-term care insurance. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, about 70% of Americans who reach age 65 will need long-term care at some point in their lives. And more than 40% will need care in a nursing home.1 LTC insurance can help you protect your financial future and position you to give more to your loved ones.
Disability insurance. Without disability income insurance, a serious injury or illness could jeopardize your family’s income and lifestyle. Different policies offer varying benefit terms, coverage and definitions of disability.
Auto and home insurance. Make sure your coverage reflects the current value of your home and liability limits are appropriate for auto coverage with an annual review to protect your assets.
Other insurance considerations
A financial advisor can help you evaluate your current coverage needs. Together, you might consider:
When was the last time you reviewed your property and casualty coverage? Do you have the coverage you need?
Does umbrella coverage make sense for you?
What employee benefits are available to cover your insurance needs?
