Very well said. Although the FDs do not give you a return at par with the inflation these days, but still they keep your money safe and that is of prime importance these days.

Hi Subbu,

It's Praveen from Bzeez.

Good blog. Congrats. Will go through all the posts some time later.

It's a myth one will lose money in bear market. One should handle both bull and bear market. Else it will be difficult.

I'm not undervaluing fundamental analysis. Just that I want to make you aware there are many tools and strategies available out there.

You can try Options - a derivative product. Also join at - the best online forum in Indian town. You will definitely learn more and can have great time out there by involving in many discussions.
