Index will reach 35,000 in the year 2014-15


After the low in the stock market that was observed in 2009, today market is revolving in the base rate of 5400 being 10 per cent more or less in the past three years. After three years of low in the market, now it has moved towards higher range being side wards.  It can be estimated that in the second half of 2012 market may show an all time new high.
 
Also, elections are ahead in 2014 so market might be a bit shaky as it has been seen in the past. But, I feel that every time it is not necessary that history will repeat itself, sometimes the completely reverse thing could happen to create a new history. So in my view if the government in 2014 will be stable and pro reform by any chance, then in the year 2014-15 Index will see a new high up to 35,000.

Also another reason why I feel that India will see new high in 2014-15 is that when the world economy was not in a good condition, then too India’s economy grew by 6% as compared to other countries. So if things fare well including the government and reforms then it will grow by 9% in 2014-15.

Due to the reforms by the government we cannot expect any change to happen overnight, its effects would be seen in at least a year’s time. But of course we can see a positive change in the sentiment and confidence of the people. We are moving from pessimism towards optimism. The market rise is 25% but written participation (people investing money) in the market is negligible. Though index has appreciated but there was hardly any investment made in the market. I feel that this was the time when people missed the opportunity as they were not prepared. Also in the past three years market has become range bound due to substantial rise. (5600 – 5800). This is indicating that there is a buying at every reaction and investors who did not participate in the rally are ready to invest when the market reacts. This might last till December 2012. January 2013 will see new buying in the market in anticipation of third quarter results and in expectation of further reforms. In India we do not need one time reform, but we need more of constant reforms as per the changes in the rapidly changing world economy.

What I Have Learnt So Far From The Stock Market

Smoking may kill you in 20 years, but trading in stock futures can kill you the next day

Article published in the Economic Times  online on the 22nd of May 2018

From the days of open outcry trading under a banyan tree to high-speed trading in the iconic PJ Tower, the Indian stock market has surely come a long way. 

From being nowhere in 1990 to the world-class infrastructure for securities trading that we have today and Sebi putting up a robust regulatory mechanism, it has been an impressive journey. 
What is not impressive is the fact that the advantage of all this modern infrastructure and systems has mainly gone to four intermediaries, the regulators and exchanges themselves besides, of course, the tax department and brokers. The traders at large were poor back then and have still remained poor. Only a handful of them have become successful in this journey, that also in investing, not trading. Success percentage in trading is hardly 1 per cent. 
Why? Because, it’s not in our DNA. We learn things three ways: by birth when it comes in our DNA; in our childhood through school…

If you follow certain principles in stock market, then the worst situation in market is the best situation to invest- Written on 6th June 2012

It seems to be the beginning of a new bull market. Economy turns around after six months of turning around of stock market. Market reacts to any situation before the economy.
1990 was the worst year in Indian recent economy history. In 1990 we were 270 billion USD economy. But although our economy has grown four times since then, the phase of 2012 is compared to that of 1990. Today the Indian economy is more than 1 trillion USD. Savings rate in India is dropping YOY on higher GDP YOY.
Factors like inflation, interest rate, IIP, GDP, politics, investment sentiments are all against the economy, most of them being on the mercy of political will. Many stocks are at historically cheaper valuation. But, one cannot go wrong in consumer stocks. Since 1990 we have crossed three stages. India is at the third stage of savings pattern.  From a high saving rate with low income to high savings rate to higher income to currently (falling) low savings rate to higher income. Our savings rate has falle…
