There are various ways of investing, and two of the most popular are mutual funds and Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs).
Both are pooled funds that allow investors to access professionally managed funds that offer diversification in a wide variety of asset classes and industries.2/20
MFs includes stocks, bonds, and money market funds that are bundled together in a single mutual fund. They offer investors a way to own a diversified portfolio of investments at a lower price which is not possible if they own each instrument separately. (3/20)
They are managed by professional money managers who allocate the funds intending to produce income or capital gains for investors.
For example : Parag parikh flexi cap fund,
Axis small cap fund,
ICICI prudential S&P BSE Index fund...etc (4/20)
ETFs are pooled investments of stocks, bonds, or other commodities similar to mutual funds, except they can be bought and sold on the stock exchange much like stocks. (5/20)
EFTs may track a specific index or sector by a single investment or an assortment depending on investment strategy.
For example : Niftybees, Bankbees, MOM100, MON100, Psubnkbees, Goldbees, Silverbees…etc (6/20)
One of the most notable similarities when considering mutual funds vs. ETFs is they are both professionally managed baskets of funds.
Since they are managed by experts, they do the research, oversee the funds, and make sure they stay on track with the target indexes. (7/20)
Due to the diversification, many investors consider them to be less risky because when one stock or bond isn’t performing well, others can offer a more balanced portfolio and reduce risk. (8/20)
ETFs offer greater flexibility in trading and allow investors to choose smaller niche stocks, while mutual funds are better suited for investors who don’t want to manage their own fund(s). (9/20)
ETFs be traded throughout the trading day, just like stocks with pricing based on supply and demand. However, mutual funds are traded differently. The price is set, and they can be traded only at the end of each trading day, not during it.(10/20)
ETFs is less expensive way to buy and enjoy a diversified portfolio, there is no such minimum requirement to buy any ETF while Mutual funds can routinely have a minimum investment requirement to enter into that particular fund.(11/20)
Mutual funds – as discussed, mutual funds are made up of stocks, bonds, and money market funds.
They are typically actively managed by professional fund managers who hand-pick the investments and buy and sell them time to time.(12/20)
ETFs – include multiple investment types such as stocks, commodity, bonds, and others that can be made up of hundreds of stocks in various industries. They’re listed on the exchange and bought and sold, much like stocks with prices that vary during the trading day.(13/20)
Index funds – are a type of mutual fund or ETF that employ a different strategy. Instead of the money manager choosing individual stocks, they buy all the shares that make up an index, such as the Nifty50, Sensex, to attempt to reproduce the performance of the market.(14/20)
Both ETFs and mutual funds offer a variety of benefits for investing as well as diversification, it’s important to consider your investment style.(15/20)
Since they have similarities, determining your choice can come down to the types of stocks and bonds in the fund, whether you want an actively or passively managed fund, the fees and commissions you’re willing to pay, and the returns you’re looking for.(16/20)
For investors that enjoy simplicity, ETFs offer a low-cost, easy way to get started with options in various markets that can provide a well-balanced and diversified portfolio geared to long-term investing.(17/20)
On the other hand, mutual funds offer the opportunity to invest in smaller markets and specific niches that may be suited for investors looking for even greater diversification.(18/20)
Some MFs in which i personally do invest on regular interval.(19/20)

All You Should Know About a Bull Flag Pattern.
Simple Way To Use.
No Indicator Used.

@sunilgurjar01 @kuttrapali26 @chartmojo
The bullish flag pattern gets its name because it resembles a flag on a flag pole.
A steep vertical rise in price is followed by a period when the price remains bounded between 2 fairly close, roughly horizontal lines. (2/16)
The pole represents the steep rise in price, and the flag represents the area between the 2 lines. (3/16)

Fibonacci Retracement and how I use this tool in with Supply & Demand levels?


#StockMarketindia #trading #StockMarket @sunilgurjar01 @kuttrapali26
Fibonacci Retracement is an important technical analysis tool used for charting potential Support and Resistance levels on any given chart.
These Fibonacci levels are also extremely important when trying to spot potential reversals within a chart. (2/20)
These Fibonacci levels are based on a numerical sequence created by Leonardo Pisano in the 13th century.
The reason these levels hold weight or are significant, is because so many people use them. (3/20)

✨What is range bound market?
When the stock prices generally flow back and forth near the old highs and then fall back to the recent lows.
When we mark such highs and lows, we find a range, and when the price move between that range, it can be termed as range bound. (2/14)
✨What is Range breakout?

When the price breaks the range which we marked earlier, it means now the price is no more trading conjestion area, then it can be termed as range breakout.

What Is Stock Split?

A stock split is when a company issues more shares to its current shareholders by lowering the face value of each share at a specified ratio.

A Thread 🧵

#StockMarketindia #trading #StockMarket
It means that the number of outstanding shares is increased by dividing the existing shares originally issued to the present shareholders.
Though there is an increase in the number of shares, the overall market capitalization of the company and the value of each shareholder’s stake remain the same.

Confused between Stock or Options?
Which one to choose?


#Trading #StockMarket @kuttrapali26 Image
Stocks & Options are two ways to put money to work in the market, but they offer sharply different profiles for risk and reward. (2/15)
Stocks offer high-risk, high-reward potential, while options take that a step higher, with the possibility to double or triple your money (or more) at the risk of losing it all, often in the matter of a few days/weeks or months. (3/15)
