    Yes but true.

    I am not saying they do it but possible. If I can think about it, brokers may have thought as well.

    The pleasure is all mine.

    $800 billion gone...! Unbelievable...!

    The fact that the broker may not be buying the actual bitcoin is really very scary...!

    Not too sure about such a price movement but business is expected to be doing good. Last quarter had awesome results and before the price could react, I entered. Lets wait for the results and hope it is able to meet the expectations or else the stock will tank.

    Do you want to SIP in stock or mutual fund?

    SIP is more suited on mutual funds and ETFs

    Hi @shabbir Ji, I wanted to start a SIP for longer-term and even I don't want to look at quarterly results and don't want to look expense ratio, we have any such stock /ETF / Mutual fund ? when I see SIP feeling it's a big trap , when I see SIP performance from 2017-2022 on Britannia its just 10% returns , if in same stock someone invested on 2017 its almost double , what could be the best way for wealth creation with less risk because earnings are limited and already I have lost so much money but from now on I want to reduce risk but I want a good investment bet.please suggest

    Reduce them. I don't increase more than 15. Ideally 12 to 15 is the best number to provide the needed diversification as well as trackable.

    You have to build your rationale or else it is better to invest via mutual funds. The reason I say investing is not simple.

    Reliable source / Cheap are all good but the point that you should also consider is this.

    Let's say you have invested from a reliable source and found it cheap as well. What happens when stock halves from the point you purchase. Your study will be the sole reason that you will be able to remain invested. Similarly, when you have invested based on study, and stock has doubled or quadrupled, you will have the courage to keep holding. If you rely on reliable sources, you will be tempted to book out for sure.

    Finding moat is not easy but it is worth the effort. The reason we have this community is to be able to discuss companies and business and when we do this, everyone benefits.

    However, remember, even if someone is able to fill the gap, the important aspect is to let your investment grow 5x, 10x and you can remain invested only if you are doing the research.

    Time and again you are insisting on understanding the business, and customers. Finally the lesson is as you said "Investing is not simple"...

    But only problem I have (most might have) is having too many stocks in the portfolio and not having time to spend time understanding the business and customers.

    Most importantly I think I am not in a position to decide stocks based on a single strong investment rationale. I think it is very difficult.

    Most of the time, we check if the company fundamentals are good, if it is recommended from a reliable source, if it is available cheap, if it is blue chip, if the sector is attractive. I think no where in this process we are applying investment rationale. I think finding ourselves the unique or moat why to invest in a company is very difficult. I don't know how to build that knowledge. May be few people like you and others (including Buffet, Rakesh, etc) are capable of... That is why we are looking upto people like you to fill the gap :) ...

    Technically:

    The patterns that I follow are when support is being formed or is respected. Best for me is W pattern followed by rectangular consolidation. You can check in my book both of them.

    Fundamentally:

    I accumulate more as they fall 10% from my buying price and I add more for each 5% fall for stocks I want to accumulate more. I did the same for Tata Cons, Go Fashion, Clean Sc. etc.

    I am not too sure how they are doing it but it is quite interesting. Do they provide you with dividends? How they actually do it is important. Now when the NSE exchange provide us an option it is much better choice.
