How to Retire Peacefully?

We all invest for some objective, but are the investment baskets the right avenue to invest?

Will it yield the required corpus in a particular time frame?

The image is based on true & live story of the happenings around.

I pray this should not be your case.

Educate yourself while Investing.

Keep right approach while Investing & stick to it.

Loss Aversion Biases

I find that some people are married longer to their stocks than their spouses. 😂😅😛

This is nothing but loss aversion bias.

People generally are reluctant to book their losses and keep holding the stocks in the hope to recover their cost price. And worse, few even average out the falling knives.

For an Investor, it is very important to accept the mistakes, learn from them and to move on.

It is far better to pay premium for excellence than to enjoy discount for average.

IDIOT BOX

Akbar once put a question to his court that left everyone puzzled.

As they all tried to figure out the answer, Birbal walked and asked what the matter was. And so they told him the question.

‘How many crows are there in the city?’

Birbal immediately smiled, went up to Akbar and announced that the answer to his questions was twenty-one thousand five hundred and twenty-three.

When asked how he knew the answer, Birbal replied, ‘Ask your men to count the number of crows.

If there are more, then the crows’ relatives from outside the city are visiting them.

If there are fewer, then the crows are visiting their relatives outside the city.’

Pleased with the answer, Akbar presented Birbal with a ruby and pearl chain.

This is the kind of stories being dished out of business news channels day in a day out.

For example: take the question “Market kya bolta hai (What’s the market saying)” or

Where will the index be by in 5 years?

And haven’t you heard very intelligent and learned people saying that the index could triple in 5 years.

The use of the word ‘COULD’ is like Birbal’s answer.

Again we hear things like the market will rise provided “MONSOONS” are good, provided “FISCAL” situation improves but there are risks also like outcome of various “ELECTIONS”

Thus the media and experts are always ready with BIRBAL answers and like Birbal’s earned Ruby and Pearls the media earns huge advertising revenue by aggregating fools who sit in front the idiot box.

My Investing Insights Series – 1

If a healthy seed of a giant tree is planted in a flower-pot, the tree that will grow to be a miniature version of the giant tree. This miniature version is known as Bonsai.

It is not because of any fault in the seed, because there is no fault in the seed. It is only because the seed has been denied the real base to grow on.

In personal finance when you give your investments just a few years of “time” your base is like a small pot and the investment will mushroom into a bonsai.

But by providing the “investment” 10 to 15 years of “time”, you change the base from a pot to a field.

Now the investment gets the right kind of base to compound and create enormous wealth.
