There are so many ways to invest in stocks. When choosing among individual stocks, mutual funds, index funds, ETFs, domestic or foreign. First you need to open a Demat account with any broker. Individual stocks: If you’re after a specific company, you can buy a single share or a few shares as a way to dip your toe into the stock-trading waters. Building a diversified portfolio out of many individual stocks is possible, but it takes a significant investment. Mutual funds or Exchange-traded funds: These mutual funds let you purchase small pieces of many different stocks in a single transaction. The upside of stock mutual funds is that they are inherently diversified, which lessens your risk.

Stock prices fluctuate because of supply and demand. High demand for a stock causes its price to go up. Too much supply causes a stock’s price to decline. Investors buying and holding a stock until it appreciates is a common practice. However, some investors profit when the value of a stock goes down, referred to as short selling. Short interest reflects the number of investors who expect the price of stock to decline. Short Interest When an investor shorts a stock, he expects its price to decline. To short a stock, he borrows money using a margin account to buy the shares at a high price. The stock may come from the broker’s inventory, another customer or another brokerage firm. To close the short position, the investor must buy the stock back called “covering.” If the stock drops in price, the investor gets to buy the shares at a lower price, making a profit on the difference.

A basic question comes in mind when an individual is new to the Stock Market. Long term investment requires patience, commitment, and keeping calm when the market fluctuates. A long term investment is an investment that has a higher probability of maximizing your return over a 10 year period or more (long-term investment goals can be buying a house, retirement planning or children’s education or Marriage).

Not really. There is a huge reason why a lot of people buy options despite knowing that it is not profitable in the long run. And that is to sell options you need to post huge margins. This often forces people to buy. Let me explain this with an example here: If you buy a nifty 10600 call for 180 Rs, you will need 180 * 75 Lot Size = 13,500 rupees to buy this. If nifty goes above 10800 you will make 20 rs profit or little bit on higher side than that. If nifty goes 11,000 you money might just double! To sell a Nifty 10600 CE option, you will need around 80,000 rupees as margin. If nifty goes to 10500 you make around 10,000 rupees as you could see in the below chart which is nearly 12% return on your investment. If nifty closes at same level still you will make nearly 100 rupee because premium is
There are hundreds of books written in different languages with the same message which is drafted in 8 simple rules here: Never lose your money. Never forget rule no 1. Traders & Investors are 2 Strangers. Maintain different account for trading and investment; never mix it. Stop Loss could be the trigger to save you from a complete destruction.

For example if you have to invest 20,000 in a company, you should buy shares in 4-5 intervals. I would first invest 5000 see how’s the price moving, based on a behavior of that stock, I would invest remaining amount. Speculation: Gambling in bear scripts like infibeam or Pcj, catching the falling knife. No diversification in portfolio, even sir Rakesh Jhunjhunwala has lot diversified his portfolio in different categories and different scripts. Your investment should be allocated in some really good companies and as warran buffet says, don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Investing huge amount in penny stocks thinking it will be rocket in a few years; agree Rakesh Jhunjhunvala’s titan went from 2 to 1000 but
