Arrow Do you play the stock market

If yes, which are the sites you trust the most?
There are host of free sites as myiris.com, moneycontrol.com, ndtvprofit.com etc., and some paid ones like fortuneinstocks.com, midcaps.in, pennyshares.in, 10paisa.in etc., etc.,

tsk1979, Actually I've been thinking about opening a thread in TBHP regarding finance and investment. Thanks for posting.

Few online communities have the passion and sincerity of our members. I think we need a channel to discuss stock and investment matters online. After all cars are owned and driven by money....

IMHO, opening a demat+savings account in ICICI bank is the best way to start.
The following are the leading online broker sites that I visit.

ICICIdirect.com - see the online university and demo
sharekhan.com
motilaloswal.com

Was never interested in stocks though I worked for 1.5 years for a company whose only product is Share Broker's management software.

Got my first stocks yesterday as part of the Stock Options in my job.

I play a lot on the market, but more longer term and A grade rather than short term. Well, I have made some sensible choices and have always bought on fundementals : credentials of business, market, ownership, product / service etc.

Old fashioned investor. But one happy investor.

I have pretty good portion of my saving in the market. Infact thats how i even started saving my salary. Kind of semi aggressive investor. 50% thru mfs and 50% thru stocks.

I am used to only icici direct. Their web interface is one of the best(my friends do have account in other brokerages). But its damn slow. Some time the login process will be so slow that by that time it logs in... it will time out and log out.

Pretty recently I found a work around for this and now i am happy... these icici guys i have to say are way toooo, i repeat, way tooo partial towards NRIs. The bandwidht/server load they provide to indian retail investors is pretty bad.

Heard sharekhan is pretty good too. Also the geojith, i hear give lot of good short term calls.

I am with kotakstreet. Their brokerage and other rates are lower and they offer free advice by phone call too!

I'm too young and ignorant to get into the Stock Market game...my dad and grandpa are quite well informed about that part of business.

I do :-) i used to do a lot, but has reduced now , since now i dont trust the market, its all the game played by FIIs , They come in , buy a lot, raise the prices and then they sell. We poor retail people are the ones at loss or at a moderate gain.

My brother is an analyst, he used to tell me what to buy, but its of no use, no prediction works in the current market :-)

I do it through ICICIDIRECT.com, and its pretty simple, all you need is money ....

I play on the market. But its long term (minimum 1 yr) and with my spare money.

And I am happy with that.

I do play the market and watch shares, infact my wify is doing the regular stuff nowadays. Earlier I used to do a lots of research browsing over the net to find the market situation and fundamentals of companies. Nowadays I don't have much time to sit on it.

We use Sharekhan terminal for both trading and long term/short term buying. The most interesting thing with sharekhan is their research report section. This has made me invest in Aban Loyd (for example) which I bought at 600-700 levels a year and half ago now trading at 3000+.
