IPO, is the first sale of stock by a company to the public. A company can raise money by issuing either debt or equity. If the company has never issued equity to the public, it's known as an IPO.
Why do the company go public?
The existing private shareholder might want to make an "exit" and sell their shareholders to public.
The company might want to make an expansion or an acquisition or to have some more money in the bank
Both the combination of the above point.
@Rahul00792 I think Zerodha tops the list of best stock broking in India. Its user friendly platform, cool apps, supportive customer support are impressive. My vote goes to Zerodha only. A great trading platform!
@ishaantsingh013 Hi Ishaant, You seemed to have done a lot of research on Intraday trading and related apps. There's another good one "StockEdge" App also. One of the popular Stock market analytics app in India. I like this personally.
You can get regular updates, technical & fundamental analytics through this stock trading app.
@Ishu Thanks for sharing details on stock market timings in India. Is the pre-open session in stock market conducted to discover the right stock price? Is the pre-opening session relevant for retail investors? Or the normal trading session is best for a trader? I believe, an investor/ trader buys or sells stocks only in the normal trading session. Right!
@Smart2Investor These days more and more stock brokers are emerging with lucrative and free or less brokerage plans. So, one tends to switch over to a better discount broker or full-service broker as per choice.
And, knowing the process to transfer shares from one demat account to another shall definitely help. Thanks for sharing the same.
@Smart2Investor Yes, the online process of Demat account opening is pretty simpler as compared to offline process as used to be earlier.
Nowadays, the tech driven demat and trading platforms are fully equipped to manage the customer requirements. The digital or paperless account opening process has made things very easier for common man.
@Anmol Hey, did u check stock market went so high. Sensex breached the 40k mark when election counting was going on. It opened high in morning on election result day. But, it closed a bit low at the end of the day. Anyways the election impact is not long term so market will stabilize soon.
@Anmol I won't say it the best idea. But, avoid buying a stock on bullish day. You may end up buying at its peak price which doesn't sound as good. This shall further lead to lesser returns. I usually place an order in smaller lots so that I can average out the price.
Stock market is a bit tricky. You can't predict any certainty. So, be very careful. That's my piece of advice.
I think it really depends on the whole situation, if you are just some small man with some small money why on earth do you need some financial advisor anyway ? What he can advise to you that you can't DIY ? Other case where you are busy person and do not have time to deal with all that research
I personally love StockEdge app, it provides a lot of data including Technical patterns, bulk buys etc which are a very useful feature.
I agree with you that advise and advisory is overrated in India. Financial people first needs to focus on getting people aware of what they are losing while not investing in Equity. Otherwise 8% interest in FD keeps people lazy unlike west where there is no such option and people are forced to look for options.
To add to it one should have extra money to invest in stocks I mean I have heard stock market trading is too risky. I would dive into it only when I have some extra money after all essential savings are done.
A very well written article on risk minimization, but everyone should keep it in mind that it doesn't mean that there will be no risk through the economic calendar. There is a saying "More the risk, more the profit". So, if u don't take risk at all, you might not be able to earn bulks of money.
@ishaantsingh013 Hi, Moneycontrol app is the best app for intraday trading tips in India so far. In fact, it is the most popular mobile application for stock trading. This supports android and iOS platforms. You can gather vast details about the dynamic stock market.
No only this, you can find domestic indices as well as global indices on this app. I find this quite helpful and convenient to use.
