Why Should You Think Of Stock Market Investing ?by Nishant Dhar Consultant
Saving and investing are the two aspects which are necessary to fulfill one’s financial goals. The dream of buying a car or home cannot be fulfilled with your savings alone due to high inflation rates and lower returns. Share market offers the opportunity to get risk adjusted returns both on a long term and a short term basis. As the risk profile varies from person to person, the type of financial products for the purpose of investment also varies. A long term investor can choose assets like mutual fund or can invest in equities for a longer time whereas a short term investor can trade in shares. Share market offers a wide range of options suitable for all kinds of investors who may be conservative or aggressive in terms of taking risks.
As an investor, one should take proper care before buying a share. You should analyze a company both technically and fundamentally to know its past price movements and its financial performance. One should start investing in share market from an early stage in life that would give enough time for his/her money to grow. As you start at a young age, the responsibilities are less and hence you can allocate more money for the purpose of investment. We should not be lazy and avoid postponing when it comes to investing as financial discipline is very important to get better returns. You can either be a lump sum investor wherein you can invest your money at one go or you can invest regularly depending on your income, objective, age, dependencies, etc.
You should also check your portfolio always so as to know which stocks to be added and which to be removed from it based on their performances. It’s our responsibility to start investing for retirement and our future health care expenses too. As most of us work in private companies and we are not covered by any Pension plans, it therefore becomes very crucial to start allocating funds for our secured future right from an early stage of our career.Investing in the share market and managing them have become very easy with mobile trading apps.
