However, such an aid must not exceed 75 per cent of total expenditure on legal proceedings. Also such aid must not be considered for more than one legal proceeding in a particular matter.

Rules for making your investment profitable in BSE | NSE

Indian stocks markets (BSE and NSE) are known through out the world for their enormous volatility and still no one can predict where the market will go in a week's time , However these rules(50 in number) are compiled by me after following the market for last 4 years, if followed correctly the investment can become very profitable both for NSE and BSE.

50 rules which a market beginners must follow in order to make their investment profitable are as follows : 

1. An attempt at making a quick buck usually leads to losing much of that buck.

2. If stocks in general don’t seem cheap, stand aside.

3. Buy and hold doesn’t always work.

4. Never throw good money after bad investments (don’t buy more of a loser).

5. Cut your losers, and let your winners ride.

6. If the investment sounds too good to be true, it is.

7. Don’t fight “the tape” (the trend).

8. Don’t fight the Fed (interest rates).

9. Most stocks that fall under $5 rarely see $10 again.

10. The best hot tip: there is no such thing as a hot tip.

11. Don’t fall in love with your stock; it won’t fall in love with you.

12. Don’t have more than 3% at risk in any one position.

13. The trend is your friend until the end.

14. Trading options often leads to a quick trip to the poorhouse.

15. Bear-market rallies are often violent; giving the illusion the bull is back.

16. Low-priced stocks don’t double any faster than high-priced ones.

17. Valuations don’t matter in the short run.

18. When a stock hits a new high, it’s not time to sell. Something is going right.

19. Have a rose garden portfolio (don’t trim your roses while your weeds fester).

20. It takes courage to be a pig (don’t settle for taking 10% profits).

21. Not selling a stock for a gain, simply because you’re afraid of the taxes, is a bad idea.

22. Avoid limited upside, unlimited downside investments.

23. When all you’re left with is hope, get out.

25. Forecasts are useless.

26. Have patience and stick with your discipline.

27. When it’s time to act, don’t hesitate.

28. Expert investors care about risk, novice investors shop for returns.

29. Don’t lose money.

30. You can learn more from your bad moves than your good.

31. A rising tide raises all ships, and vice versa, so assess the tide, not the ships.

32. Stocks fall more than you think and rise higher than you can possibly imagine.

33. Very few people have had great success short selling, even in bear markets.

34. You can’t know everything about everything.

35. Since you can’t know everything, seek out specialists who know their areas.

36. If a company’s sales are shrinking, the business isn’t growing anymore.

37. Real estate cycles are not the same as stock market cycles.

38. Investing in what’s popular never ends up making you any money.

39. Know your investment edge, and don’t stray too far from it.

40. Bear markets begin in good times. Bull markets begin in bad times.

41. Buy value - stocks that are priced less than their underlying assets are worth.

42. Neglected sectors often turn out to offer good values.

43. There’s usually only one reason corporate insiders buy stock.

44. Don’t miss a good one by being too concerned with the exact price you pay.

45. Avoid popular stocks, fad industries and new ventures.

46. Buy shares in businesses you understand.

47. Try to buy a stock when it has few friends.

48. Be patient: don’t be rattled by fluctuations.

49. Mutual funds underperform the averages over the long run. Buy index funds instead.

50. If you don’t understand the investment, don’t invest.

That’s a lot of rules. Reasonably intuitive, yet millions of investors break these simple rules every day. I’d like to leave you with one more rule of investing, which I’m seeing among investors trying to get back to where they were…

Tips for curbing effects of Inflation on daily life

Rising inflation has started affecting every individual here are few proven tips for minimizing the effect of inflation on your hard earned money:

How to open your free account for online share trading

Rework Your Household Budget:
In the times of rising prices, you need to spend your monthly household budget smartly. To maintain your lifestyle, you should limit the household expenses to 70 per cent of your monthly take-home income. "If it is exceeding the limit, you need to judiciously cut down on the unnecessary expense items," says Ramesh Dalal, V-P, Bajaj Capital Financial Planning Group. For example, you should buy the seasonal fruits and vegetables and avoid the non-seasonal ones, as they are expensive. Control the use of electricity and telephone and try to reduce the expenses on wardrobe, partying, gifts etc. by a certain percentage. You may also think of enhancing your earning capacity by changing to a better-paying job or doing some part-time work.

Insulate Your Long-Term Goals Against Inflation:
Do not let inflation affect your long-term mandatory goals like house purchase, education and marriage of your children and regular income for the retirement years."With the help of a qualified financial planner, incorporate the inflation factor in your long-term goals and invest the required amount regularly towards meeting those goals," says Dalal. For example, if you want to make provision of Rs 10 lakh for your 6-year-old daughter's higher education when she is 18, incorporating an inflation figure of 6 per cent p.a. will give you a figure of Rs 20 lakh at that point of time. Therefore, you should start an investment plan from now, which will help you accumulate Rs 20 lakh after 12 years.

Review Your Financial Goals :
In the current scenario of staggering prices, there is a need to review your financial plans and investments as the expenses and corpus required to achieve financial goals may increase. So, you need to balance your portfolio so that it can generate better inflation-adjusted returns.

Diversify Your Portfolio:
Inflation impacts different sectors in different ways. "Due to current inflationary trends, one needs to have a well thought-out sector spread in his investment portfolio. While investing in companies, one should look at how they are being impacted by the rising input and borrowing costs," informs Ashish Kapur, CEO, Invest Shoppe India Ltd. For example, manufacturing companies or heavy industries, though their stocks, will be available at tempting valuations. However, chances are high that they will further fall in short term, owing to negative sentiment. Hence, investments should be made in large cap companies having economies of scale and their ability to handle input and borrowing costs.

Stay Invested in Equities:
For long-term investment goals like child education, retirement etc, equity can generate handsome inflation-adjusted returns. Therefore, In spite of the current volatile situation in the equity market, it is advisable to stay invested as this is a cyclical event and in the long run the markets are bound to rise. Hence, to achieve such goals one should be able to take a calculated risk. "Consider this bearish trend as a good entry point in garnering blue chip stocks," says Kapur.

Invest your Money wisely :
Don't keep on accumulating your money in the savings bank A/c. Keep only 2-3 times of your monthly household expenses in the liquid form and invest the balance amount regularly in a well-diversified portfolio of equity, short-term debt, real estate, commodities and gold. It will increase your cash inflows and help you reduce the burden of rising prices.

Check The Real Return On Investment Portfolio:
Inflation eats into your net worth by reducing the real return on your investment portfolio. Real returns are inflation adjusted returns. For example, if you have a bank FD, which earns returns at 8 per cent p.a., and inflation is 8 per cent, then the real return on this investment is zero. Therefore, you should review your existing portfolio as well as make fresh investments to check whether your absolute returns are beating the rate of inflation by a good margin or not. Equity, commodities, gold and real estate are good investment options to generate a positive real rate of return. For short-term requirements, you can consider investing in the short-term funds or floater funds. It is generally seen that a high inflationary trend is followed by an upward revision in the interest rates. Hike in the interest rates will adversely affect your long-term debt portfolio. Therefore, during inflationary periods, it is wise to invest in short-term funds and wait to reap high returns.

Add the Shimmer of Gold to Your Portfolio:
Historically gold has proved to be the perfect hedge against inflation. After adding gold in your portfolio, the risk remaining the same, the overall inflation-adjusted returns of portfolio can be enhanced. High inflation, in fact, puts an upward pressure on the interest rates, which in turn create uncertainty in the capital markets. During such times of crisis, gold as an investment avenue is a good bet. Investment in gold can be made in the form of bullion, coins, jewellery and Gold Funds Exchange Traded Gold Funds, among others.

Avoid Investments In Illiquid Assets:
Illiquid assets with low returns restrict the performance of a portfolio. So, try to exit from such investments and redeploy the amount in asset classes that generate better inflation-adjusted returns. For example, bank fixed deposits, post office recurring deposits, etc.

March 2008 Market Highlights | Advise for Investor's "hold on investment for longer time"


Indian stock markets closed a whopping 900 pts down on 17th march 2008 due to growing global uncertainity and weakening US dollar against EURO due to which oil prices touched new record high of $111/barrel and the trend is further growing to continue.

However our blog prediction for market crash(made on 15th march) owing to uncertainity in global markets was yet again proved right : THANKS TO OUR MARKET ANALYSTS! and the future looks sceptical too so the suggestion to investor's is to hold on their money till the global uncertainity ends.

It has been highlighted many times that indian market is governed by US market and is more in hand of US economy then Indian investors. so advice for the investors is to follow the trends in the US stock markets NASDAQ, New York Stock Exchange(NYSE) and other major stock exchanges like Dow Jones etc.

Details for 17/3/2008:

Across the board sell-off, on account of weak global cues, saw indices closing over 6 per cent lower. Mid-caps and small-cap stocks were the worst hit. Indian benchmarks grossly underperformed its peers globally. Bombay Stock Exchange’s Sensex closed at day’s low of 14,740.12, down over 900 points or 6.47 per cent.

National Stock Exchange’s Nifty ended at 4,484.55 down 5.50 per cent, worst close for the benchmark after September 6, 2007. It touched a low of 4482.10. BSE Mid-cap Index ended at 6,583.45, down 478.22 points or 7.26 per cent and BSE Smallcap Index fell to 7,515.98 down 563.52 points or 6.97 per cent.

ICICI Bank (down 15.06%) was the worst hit. Jaiprakash Associates (down 12.7%), HDFC (11.28%), Hindalco Industries (9.39%), Reliance Energy (8.68%), Tata Steel (8.54%), Grasim Industries (8.15%) and DLF (7.96%) were the other index losers. Across BSE, 2395 declines outnumbered 289 advances.

hence the golden word is "DON'T PANIC" hold on with your investment.

New Forum: How to distinguish between a good IPO and bad IPO

Looking at the present trend of stock exchange a lot of companies are going public. but how new investor would distinguish between a good IPO or a bad IPO.
Investing in a weak company can never be fruitful and there is every possibility of the investors being duped off and loose there hard earned money.
One way of distinguish between a good IPO(Initial public offering) and a bad IPO is to get a thorough knowledge of the company which is coming up with it's offering.
It can be done by analysing the last five years (minimum) balancesheets of the company, It's employee strength and the growth trends. The most important point to check is the annual profit of the company.

If you have any other point do leave a comment so that every investor can know about it and their hard earned mony should not be lost!!

So do make this post a lively post by leaving your expert comments.
