  • Back to school: A guide to investing

    Publish date: 12th July, 2018

    The first showers of monsoon have hit the Indian subcontinent, bringing with it the comforting whiff of the wet earth. This is the time when kids bring out their new umbrellas and raincoats to combat the harsh monsoon rains. Just like these kids, are you, as an investor, prepared for rainy days at the stock market? If not, here’s what you can do to protect yourself during rough weather:

    Brush Up On Knowledge

    With the markets currently down, investors are looking to take new positions. Investors may treat this downswing in the stock markets as a break before the markets finally bounce back again. This break can serve as an excellent opportunity for investors –both new and experienced- to learn or relearn skills and trading strategies. Utilizing the downtime will only make you a more aware investor, a 360-degree investor.

    Invest In New Tools

    Just like children start shopping for new bags, latest pencil boxes, funky water bottles and water-proof shoes before the school term begins, an investor should get all the help that’s out there.

    For starters, investment tools have become a necessity. They have become an inevitable phenomena in the trading industry, thanks to the range of tasks they can complete and the efficiency they provide. Some of the popular trading tools used are Keat Pro X and Fastlane.

    Along with this, a number of investment platforms such as Moneycontrol, Stock Watch, Robinhood, and YahooFinance help a trader make better decisions. These platforms are a must for any investor adamant about making successful investments. They enable investors to keep a close eye on the Indian and global markets.

    Protect Your Capital

    Children always want to buy waterproof bags. The reason being that it would protect their precious books. They realize how important their books are to them and thus make every possible attempt to protect them.

    Capital is to investors what books are to children. Therefore, you need to strategize to keep your capital secure and, at the same time, help grow over time. One of the easiest practices is to invest in fundamentally strong stocks (helps your capital grow) and use the stop-loss option (helps reduce your losses).

    A wise man knows there is something to learn from everyone. Similarly, we as investors, must look to these kids for inspiration and be prepared to combat our own stock market battles efficiently. Just like kids go to school, investors and traders must get back to their drawing boards to fortify their basics and come up with new strategies.
