Learn how to Invest In stock Market

First of all study the markets. Then you come up with a conclusion that which stocks you have to buy. You need to understand first what is trading and what is investment.

  • Trading means you will buy and sell shares on frequent basis with the help of indicators , candles and technical chart.
  • Suppose I buy 1000 shares of nse Infy at Rs 30 and as soon as the share gains upto Rs 1 I sell those shares on that particular day probably known was Intraday Trading.
  • Maybe you will sell tomorrow or day after tomorrow and that is known as BTST – Buy today sell tomorrow.
  • You don’t believe in long term investment in stocks and as as soon as you get some profit you will sell those shares.

Lets take about Investment now!

  • In investment you keep your money invested into that company for longer periods.
  • Maybe 2-3 years of time period.
  • You don’t sell those shares as soon as you get some profit.
  • You enjoy the dividends paid by the company – company gives some profits which they have earned in that quarter or year to their share holders.
  • Don’t sell the shares even if you are in 10-20 % loss
  • You don’t observe or see the market everyday.
  • You invest your money in the company and you believe in the growth of the company.

Trading is like – 100 meter race while Investing is like marathon.

You have to to decide what you want to be ? but mark my word I have never seen a Rich trader. People like Warren buffet , Radhakrishna Damani , Rakesh JhunJhunwala have created their wealth on longer horizon of time.

Tips On How to Invest In Stock market

Now Here is a example how you can start your investment in stock market. with Rs 10000

First of all stop buying penny stock !! Concentrate on Large Cap Stocks only as beginner. Now why I am telling you this is large Cap companies are established companies. They won’t go Bankrupt easily. They will pay you good dividends time to time. Only the problem the prices is quite high. But still it is more safe to invest in large funds rather than buying a penny stock like Rnaval share of Anil Ambani.

Moreover Large cap stocks will easily give return of 10-15 % On yearly basis. That is more than Fixed Deposit , or Bank Interest.

There are companies belonging to banks, FMCG, IT , OIL , Telecom. So even if one sector is doing bad suppose the banking sector then IT , FMCG will cover it for you.

Long Term Investment Plan

To Invest you should know the difference between all the different types of companies listed on NSE and BSE by their Market capitalization.

Large Cap – Market capitalization is over 1 lakh crore – eg – nse infy , nse hdfcbank , nse icici etc. These are relatively safe to invest comparing Mid cap or small cap companies

Mid Cap – Market capitalization is over 8000 crore – eg nse voltas , nse muthoot finance , nse mindtree etc . Safer than small cap companies but have a certain amount of risk comparing to Large cap.

Small Cap – Market capitalization is less than 8000 crore – eg Vip Indutries , Safari Industries etc.

The more risk the more gain. Small cap companies are more volatile comparing to Large cap and hence if they get converted into mid or small u can become a crorepati overnight. So as a beginner I suggest you don’t go for small cap companies instead go for large cap. The return will be around 10-15 % per year but as a a investment it will be safe.
