Held onto the shares In fact if it holds onto 80-82 I will consider buying another 100 or 200 to catch the next wave. I am expecting it to cross Rs. 100 in the longrun. Will only sell it if the crude prices play havoc or similar. Until then, aviation stocks seem to look promising.

Hi Friends, need one info. I recently opened a 3-in-1 account with ICICIDirect. While opening the account I had to sign a Power of Attorney along with 2 stamp papers, one worth Rs/- 50 and another 100 towards ICICIDirect. I was hesitant to sign it, but knowing that to do online trades I have to provide PoA, I signed it. But I didn't keep a copy of it. May I know if this is the norm while opening an account with ICICIDirect? What are the ways the broker can misuse it? And what are the precautions I can take to avoid it? I searched ICICIDirect for a copy of the PoA form, but couldn't locate it. Do any of you can point me to a URL to download that form?

Hi, don't worry too much about the POA, it is required for all companies I think, not just ICICI direct.

Without your consent they won't place any trades. If you are using online platform only to buy and sell yourself, then it is even better, there is no confusion at all and their involvement is not there. I would suggest you do that.

Everyone is seeing the great fall in market and quite naturally worried. Seeing the macro factors and geo political scenario, it is going to be very volatile and turbulent ahead. To earn consistently in any type of market with least risk,I suggest Nifty option writing,in far month contract. Since,in option writing there is possibility of unlimited risk,hedge it with current month buy contract of the same strike price. Try this out and make money ! First practice in NSE Patshala, with virtual money. You can trade in real time market. Its free to register. After practice,open online trading account with any discount brokerage and trade with real money. Good luck !

Hi,

Nice interview of Bharat Shah

"So, the intellect to understand businesses, the skill to value it, the discipline to purchase at a meaningful price and the wisdom to stay on course are the critical aspects of investing."

That was nice.
I also liked this one:
"Overall, 2016 will be a year to be conservative and risk-averse. The time for bravery will come and to take the advantage of that, for now, we have to remain solvent. "

J.Ravi,

Wanted to know what does your study says about these companies? Please brief us with your understanding and long term outlook of these companies so that we can benefit.

Long-term outlook of these two companies is good with good capital growth. Both have excellent dividend history. One is a government enterprise, while the other is a well-adminsitered private sector bank. The present dividend yield of OIL is 5.34% and that of Karnataka Bank is 4.62%, according to Money Control. They are less volatile, thereby reducing the risk. So, whenever there is a dip in the market, I buy these shares purely for long-term investment. Even if the maket does not recover, I can enjoy the regular tax-free good dividend!

Now Torrent power is benefiting from low gas prices.

Disclosure - I own Torrent power and Cupid (bought recently at 170 and 270 respectively)
I have been tracking Cupid after reading your post. Its down 9% today. What do you think ? Is it time to enter. Or Have I missed the bus?

Hi, not sure...everything small is cracking today.

Cupid, I had bought at 270 and would not buy at current price as margin of safety is less as per me. If it corrects to 300, would be quite interesting. Have a look at Pharma stocks like Jubilant Lifescience and Neuland Labs. Take solutions also look good after the corrections.

Not very sure if there is another thread about this, quick search didn't point to any.

Would like to seek suggestions upon which demat/trading account to go for.
How does the low cost ones like Zerodha work out?
