2) Axis Bank bought @ 284.500
3) Everonn Systems bought @ 85.000
4) Jyoti Structure bought @ 76.500
5) Siemens bought @ 214.000
6) Punj Lloyd bought @ 109.650
7) Suzlon bought @ 33.700 , 33.800 and 52.100


I'd suggest you not sell aban offshore shares. Can't give you reasons on a forum, if you can, keep it for another year.
P.s - it's only a suggestion, I'm not asking you to act based on what I said, if you need more details, pm me.

Thanks for the heads up. Infact Aban is one of the largest long positions that I have followed by Cairn, Satyam & Suzlon. Not looking to short the entire position anytime soon. I trade with them often but one thing is if I Sell them I immediately buy back when the price falls marginally.

Sorry to hear that ECM, as Navpreet mentioned, you beat everyone when it came to calculation and interpretation. Wish you can continue to post.

I feel most of the Q1 good results are more because of cost cutting measure than any improvement in sales figure. Even though the sentiment in the market is slowly improving but it is not that high yet!

Atleast one good thing about the recession on the corporate side has been that all expenses are being looked at at greater details. Money is only being spent on something that is required rather than being desired.

Yes, we have to take 2 - 3 quarters more to safely say recession is over. But markets always look ahead. Analysts already started estimating FY2011 earnings .

I have realized one very simple truth.
My gross habits and net income, don't match.

One option is to get into this trading.
Can someone please share the name of any good e-book, I can use to understand the satta bazaar.

Moneycontrol will take care not only of stocks but various investment options as well.

Sharekhan.com is also good if you are interested only in stocks.

To make myself clear. I want to learn how to spot stocks. Identify, which one to invest in. When to invest in it, when to get out of it.

I understand this comes with experience, but I would like to learn how to read trends from newspapers. How does some development impact a particular company and so on.

Guys, NHPC's IPO announced, offer closes on 12th august, face value of Rs.10, in the price band of Rs.30 to Rs.36.minimum application of 175 shares, and then in multiples of 175.A good long term investment, and it's not going to be too expensive to buy either.

There is no exact science. Thats why fund managers manage others money, and do not manage their own.
If there was a guide which told you exactly how to get rich in stock market, all fund managers will be investing their own money

The more time you spend tracking the more you learn, there is no short cut, I have even ordered traning materials from the web to learn the same, but did not find it satisfactory, the best thing you can do is maintain a virtual portfolio in Moneycontrol.com and then keep tracking the shares you invested in.

If you contiune to visit Moneycontrol everyday, you will see many up's and down with time.

My best logic is that, I buy when everyone else sell's, but I don't buy everything.

In the right hands, and with someone who has a lot of guts, Rs 5lakhs could have become Rs 50 Lakhs since Oct 18th 2008, when markets crached all over, but then I don't know anyone who actually made that big a kill, even though the markets provided ample oppurtunities.

bblost,

If you want to read simple stock market stuff, read Warren Buffet. He has simple rules for investing and very sensible.

The rest of the stuff is filled with jargons, graphs and what not.

Like others said, it all comes through experience.

@musicmanaman - agree with you!

I am not trying to disagree to whats said here, But....

Warren Buffett is definitely a good read. However, most part of his approaches are based majorly on consumerism. I think this factor is going to be a relatively lesser-impact factor going forward. Having said that, the man has quite a few interesting things to say.

@bblost: i do have a suggestion. if u think u r in for the long run, try getting ur hands on a good economics book. will give u a good complete-picture perspective. although it would take some time. if i remember any good and non-jargonish books, will let you know.

If you are a total novice. Read the jargon first. Understand whats what. Then get into stratergies and long term and research, etc.

This is a lottery unless you are real smart. 5% of who ever got into this are.
