The Small Retail Investor !!

This is one of the incidents which happened with me?


The concerned person has been trading and investing for quite some time now. We had a quick trading call on 3i infotech some time back which i just happened to mention after a detailed talk on BOC and NESCO:).


I would like readers to put in their comments for the cloud box.




The chap was ready to put 1.6 lakhs in a 16 rs stock πŸ™‚ but not buy 100 shares of BOC India or NESCO at 300 and 550 respectively.


Will be discussing many such issues;)


One of the major one being Patience/ Absolute calculations and Leverage.


Happy Investing,


Nooresh Merani

      Well not all do the same.

      Today the investors have become more knowledgeable πŸ™‚ I was looking into MF inflows.

      Nbventures will test patience.

    Bang on. Another e.g is stock like Honeywell Auto or Fag Bearing. Insytead of understanding the amount of investment one wants to put it, people often presume smaller price = bigger gain. This comes from lack of knowledge about the methodology behind a share quoted price on exchange. Really sad

      Yes Nitin.

      Just the comic to bring it to everyone notice.

      10 to 12 is equivalent to 10000 to 12000 πŸ™‚ mathematically.
