What I have learnt ? "lalach buri bala hai"

On a serious note -

1.Do not put all your money into equities (direct orindirect) keep a resonable amount in debt instruments (bonds/fd's etc.)

2.Stay away from loans and EMI's (though I have always done that , but in case you lose your job , u'll loose your other stuff as well)

3.And stay invested in market for long term, don't look at making a quick buck.

I started investing regularly in stocks 4 years ago, when I got my first job. When markets hit the 18k mark, I reduced the amount of money I put in every month. I am yet to sell a single stock I have bought, ever. Now at 8k, my portfolio is worth about 50% more than the total money I have invested in 4 years.

I learnt that if you are a long term investor, its harder to lose money than to make money.
