How To Start Investing As A Beginner?

This article might inspire you for investing, but I would suggest you better start with trading. Now this is a new word I introduced to you but it is quite similar to investing.

This can be done for short term, momentum trading as well as long term. There is plenty of youtube content for this on how to open a demat account and I would like to introduce some apps like Zerodha and Alice blueThese apps have a very low brokerage charge.

Zerodha– India’s biggest stock broker offering the lowest, cheapest brokerage rates for futures and options, commodity trading, equity and mutual funds. (Source- Zerodha)

The only thing you have to remember is that when you wanted to get a simple engineering job you were required 4 years of preparation for the entrance 4 years of degree then you get a negligible amount of salary which can be earn in a single day of day trading, but the thing is you have to learn the basics, how the market flows follow a mentor if you think you are incapable, seek for help it won’t happen that your first trade without study would give you a million.

If you follow a specific person read his investments his entry point of investment stock price and his exit point try to buy the stocks when you a have a decent amount of money that way you can earn dividends, and spoilers you will think of quitting it as soon you have your first big loss.

Just for information, when I was offered this I incurred a loss of 600$ that was the size of my portfolio and then I cried for 2 days straight this happened between lockdown but I knew if I stop I would never turn that red amount green.

So, I am accumulating the basic amount and would jump again more concentrated and knowledgeable. Don’t worry everyone has losses so invest the amount that won’t matter to you if you lost. You will learn this in any course or by any mentor you follow.

Use the apps, I mentioned they are for beginners as well as experienced traders as its brokerage charges are too stoop.
