I am glad that you have stopped that intra-day trading. Intra-day trading is entirely based on speculation without any logic and is a sure-shot way for loss-making. Technical analysis on which intra-day trading is based is nothing but a graph based on the previous movement of stock price of a particular stock. There is no surety that the same graph will be replicated again and again.
So far as dividend-paying stocks are concerned, it is a relatively better strategy but this can't ensure a stable income. We can't be sure that every year a particular company will announce a dividend. Announcing dividend depends upon the profit made by the Company in the last year. As the profit may vary or the company may suffer loss in a particular year, the dividend may not be regular.
Purchasing some good growth stocks, some large-cap stocks and some dividend-giving stocks would be a better strategy for earning. However, for retail investors, it would be good to include some good mutual fund schemes in their portfolios depending upon their risk-taking capabilities and holding period.
Beware! I question everything and everybody.
