How To Invest In Share Market



Share Market


Share Market is a place where everyone takes part in order to taste the money. But it purely depends on several factors like luck, global cues, behavior of other country markets, currency rate, Forex rates, currency trading etc. Trading is done in terms of the shares. These shares are the name of the companies which gets listed, generally. Also the share price varies time to time even second by second, if the variation graph is critical.



Types Of Sectors


There are various sectors in the share market. Some of the known sectors are Oil, Reality meaning Real Estate, Construction, Finance, Telecommunication, Refineries, Steel, Broking firms, Food and beverages, Metals, Jewelry, Packaging, Consumer Goods etc. The best sector to invest is the decision taken by the investors understanding the fundamentals of the company, turnover, volumes traded, balance sheet and so on.

Identify the Best Sector


As we saw above there are lot of sectors available in front of the investors. But which sector one should choose that will give good returns in short term and long term investments. If the economy is weak and the world is facing a financial pressure or crisis then it is tough to identify the sector as every sector would get affected.

So it is better to pick up the mid cap stocks that will not go worse in near future. Because large cap stocks will plunge and surge drastically like anything. If you were caught at the peak say January 2009. then it is tough to get to that level.

How To Invest smart


This is the first question a person asks himself and approaches others when he wants to invest in share market. Basically you should have a clear vision when you want to reap the benefits that is the returns.

If you want to pull out the invested money in short term, you should choose the critical moving sectors and shares and also don't act blindly on the third party suggestions. If you want to have the investment to be taken by your generation, then you can go for Long Term investment.

In long term investment one should analyze the pure fundamentals of the company, the dividend amount it pays to the shareholders,the capital and the percentage of share ratio between the company and the public.

Terms Of Investment


Basically investors should go for two types of investments, short term and long term.
Short term investments are one that an investor will buy stocks and keep in his portfolio for at least 3-6 months. Gain must me kept in mind and thus the selection of stocks plays vital role here. Equity advisor consultancy is recommended.

Long term investments are one that an investor will buy stocks and keep in his portfolio for more than 6 months and for years. Here portfolio management is very important as many tax free income flashes the eye like Dividend, investment duration etc.

Share Trading Houses



Generally shares are traded electronically today and these process is done through the brokerage houses and from exchanges like Bombay Stock Exchange BSE and National Stock Exchange NSE.

Some of the well known brokerage houses are ICIC Direct, Reliance money, Sharekhan, HDFC Securities, India Infoline, Mangal Traders etc.
Share Tips, trading tips are provided by these houses to their customers regularly.

INDIA GROWTH STORY

If you had this question whether you should be investing in stock markets 2 years back you would have had everybody screaming at top of their voices regarding "BRIGHT' future of stock market, India Growth story and all the positives of share market. At that point of time one would have just not imagined what was a falling market. The Technicals, the fundamentals of the market were so strong that nobody in worst of their dreams would have just felt what is coming ahead. Everybody jumped on the bandwagon as the procession of investors went on increasing, covering each 1000 market points in a single day or two maximum a week. We could see channels celebrating on rallies 15000, 16000, 17000.......... Then what went wrong is still the question asked by the small investor. The answer actually is things were going wrong but we ignored them completely and just concentrated on the positive side.

VARIOUS THEORIES BEFORE THE MAYHEM

If you had followed the news channel they discussed "A Decoupling theory". What actually was this decoupling theory? A group of broking houses or lets say the investment biggies believed that indian market is moving away from the world markets and will move in directions i.e up and down according to its own will or the news generated domestically. That always meant since India is growing our market will grow similarly. But how could that be the case anyways? We still tally our currency with dollar. We need foreign exchange(FOREX) reserves for our economy. We needed our Exports to grow. 30 % of our earnings come from the outsourced work.
So somehow or the other we all are tied up. If one of our colleagues fall we had to fall accordingly without having choices. It was as simple as that but still we didn't want to believe the truth. When USA was cutting PLR's, Benchmark Intrest Rate we should have known something is terribly wrong so such agreessive steps were taken.

USING YOUR BRAINS & NOT HEART IN INVESTING

People still ask should I be investing in the market? The answer would be just 20% of your income to the max. The markets have fallen from heights and are at around 40% from their tops. Think logically, when a thing falls from greater heights what happens? Yes. So similarly the market sentiment is shattered. It would talk a good year to get it back. You will hear some voices saying this is a good time to invest and bla bla bla. But think to yourself. Do you still have confidence in markets. Are the world markets stable? no. Then why risk your hard earned money at this point of time. So better thing is get your money parked in some fixed interest rate instrument. Wait for another procession to come it may be round the corner but let it fall in front of your eyes.

TILL THEN..........

Just wait at the shore for the right time. For now it wont be advisable to 'Enter the Dragon'...... The Share market or you will burn your hands for no gains. The market views and standings would be posted from time to time so keep a track if interested.

I guess stock market investing has just bloomed out of proportion over period of time. i am surprised the way people have started adapting to it. Even I feel it is necessary. Traditional investments can just help you give you your bread and butter but will not fulfill your expectation. If you want higher returns, the stock market is the place.

Share market investment has now become one of the best option to make extra money by young generation.
As it is available on Online portal. Internet users can do share trading by sitting at there home ( if they are having some knowledge about how to trade and which share to buy or sell at right level for making profit).

So if you want to be a successful share trader.
I want to suggest you some points.
1- Learn and gain knowledge .
2- Follow only particular stocks ( Either A category stocks or else NIFTY 50 stocks).
3- Invest only your sur plus money.
4- Book partial profit.
5- Trade with small quantity ( do not try to make over night money as share market is not a money making machine).
6- Withdraw your profit and enjoy that amount.
7- learn fro each of your trading activity whether it is profitable or loss.
