Don’t Mind the Index, Just Pick Your Stocks!

After the state election results were out the Nifty and Sensex reached historic highs (Nifty closed at 6363 after intraday high of 6414 and Sensex closed at 21326 after intraday high of 21483 ) bringing a sense of euphoria in market-watchers but for the seasoned investors, this was just another non-descript day in the market, quick to fade away into distant memory.

Monday, 23 December 2013

Weekly Market Update - 16 to 20 Dec 2013

The markets started last week on a low note with the hangover of the high CPI which was further aided by the 14-month high WPI figures. It was expected with certainty that the RBI will go for another bout of rate-hikes and this kept the mood in the markets down. But with the RBI keeping a status quo on the interest rates which lifted the moods. This also helped somewhat when the US Fed finally reduced its bond buying signalling the start of the QE taper program.

Will FDI rekindle foreign investors’ interest in India once again?

It is universally accepted that FDIs increase the employment opportunities and wealth in a country. They provide new technology and capital for investment, which may be helpful for the growth of that country’s economy. FDIs claim several other opportunities that include direct benefit to farmers, reduction in food inflation, and drop in wastage of food.

Saturday, 14 December 2013

Weekly Market Update - 09 to 13 December 2013

The Sensex and Nifty hit historic highs on the first trading day of the week riding on the back of what was percieved as a good outcome of assembly elections. But, the euphoria did not last long and old fears gripped the markets in a bear hug. Data on IIP and CPI released also aided the disappointment.

Saturday, 16 November 2013

Weekly Market Update - 11 Nov to 14 Nov 2013

When the markets lose, they lose big and you need to have some pep talk by somebody up there to turn the mood. That is the gist of the markets this week as the 7-day losing streak was cut short with the press-conference by one Mr. Rajan.

Inflation - RBI's First Priority

In its mid term policy RBI has again stuck to its priority for curbing inflation. RBI has clearly signaled that its first priority is to curtail inflation even if it is at the expense of growth to some extent. The question is, why is inflation so important? Why is the RBI so seriously worried about inflation and made it its number one priority?

Play The Cyclical Markets - Pick Stocks For A Lifetime

If somebody were to sum-up the present macro-economic situation in India, they would probably sum it up as High Inflation Low Growth. As the IIP data for the past 12 months and the dismal GDP numbers reported so far and projected for the full year show, we are going through an economic low presently. But, for investors should search  good opportunities for investment in the present situation too.

In the FOMC meet on 18th Sep 2013 there was a surprise for the global markets as there was no announcement about any QE tapering as was widely anticipated.

Rupee Depreciation - Where We Stand Now

Starting June, when the US initially gave signals that a rollback of its Quantitative Easing may be on the horizon, the emerging markets were sent into a tizzy with most of these currencies depreciating against the dollar with Foreign Investments flying out of these emerging market economies. India was no exception and hence we too felt the heat. The problem at home was multiplied by already high CAD, fiscal deficit and inflation giving us a perfect recipe for economic gloom.

Bear Market - Right Time to Invest in Stocks is NOW!!

Any novice to stock investments will tell you that the basic rule of getting good returns from stocks is to buy low and sell high. Easy??

Currency is the lifeblood of a nation’s economy. Where currency is affected, the economy is affected. And where the economy is affected, the currency experiences the repercussions.

Investment - The Wealth Creation Tool

We keep hearing about financial planning every now and then. We keep talking about how to make our money flow into the right channels and to make it work of us. For most of us, all this stops with the monthly budgeting exercise where we allocate some amount for our regular expenses and the rest goes into various savings and investments without putting in a second thought to it. The result is that more often than not, the money that we save goes into inefficient channels because we got the balance wrong in the first place.

Timing The Stock Market

One thing about stock markets which puts-off a number of beginners to stock investments, is the inability to time the markets. We give-in to buzz very easily. When a lot of activity happens in a particular scrip then it is easy for the beginner to do what others are doing and in the rush,  make mistakes. We have to practice, in-order to resist temptation and take the correct decisions. For that, we need to understand two important extremities which arise due to the market buzz.

As we are learning to invest and become better investors and wealth creators, we need to look at this precious commodity in the correct perspective. We need to ask ourselves, is it really worth it?
