Every new broker in town tries to copy #zerodha.

Looks easy to copy

Similar UI, same brokerage per order, cool funny iconic founders, targeting social media influencers

But zerodha did few things in Initial years which imho is missing

+ 1. Word of mouth publicity by genuinely being blown away from product and literary forcing friends and family to at least try this new broker, not seen even 1% for any other broker since

2. No marketing, advertising budget, which forced zerodha to aquire customer organically

10 min delivery start ups.

For many generations, only permanent flex MEN (father, husband, son) had was delivering groceries in under 10 mins, when commanded or shouted at.

This was the USP, and after such act, men feel valued, elated and even allowed some freedom

Freedom to hang out with friends, or even freedom to drink (if they did many 10 min deliveries, esp on a Sunday)

Also it was a low cost solution for the house hold, and men made some pocket change of time and money for cigarettes if they were lucky.

You know, gold plating of

If you are seeing the raging bull market for the first time, then first thing you need to understand is, who you are

If you are holding #tatapower or any power stocks or commodity stocks in your long term portfolio then you are playing MOMENTUM

+ For any time frame, momentum investing, a stop-loss is a must,

you cant become a Buffett bhatija and later on become Buy-hold investor when such stock start going down

Even best of the seasoned traders crack under pressure

1. They start doubting their strategies and even trading as a profession

2. They are tempted to tweak their system or approach

3. They think market has changed forever

+ 4. They do stupid mistakes while knowing fully well how stupid it is

They have many months of ever increasing Drawdown

So if it happens with you

You are not alone or incompetent

A thread ;)

My mother cooks delicious food, just like everyone's mom

(Taste being a learned behavior)

+ So. Once when I was small kid, came back from hostel and late at night

I asked my mom to cook my favorite chilli paneer and fried rice among many things

She prepared it all and it was almost mid night and I was the only one there to eat food,

Like a hungry bear, I ate it all

Most people have their 80-90% net worth tied up in real estate/gold or in their job

but they are overly worried about stock market

Because trading/investing addresses universal human instinct of gambling

identify and address that

Its a two part problem

+ Part 1:

If u are overly worried about a tiny part of your net worth, open positions or losses, its because of ego and gambling instincts,

you dont want to come out as a loser in any endeavour,

Festival Special #brotip

If you like a girl in your classroom/office/dandiya/ganpati

go talk to her

Literally, she is waiting for you to talk to her.

And take her phone number in the first meeting itself,

there might not be a second meeting without a phone number

+ A beautiful girl, well dressed, is not waiting for the most handsome guy,

She is waiting for just average decent guy who can make a great conversation, and she knows that she has to talk to u to know if u are decent and/or can make a good conversation

Managing long term portfolio

With very little efforts you can beat any mutual fund while being buy only long term investors,

First, why many mutual funds underperform the index on a long term average

1. they have to keep cash for redemptions, which gives little returns

+ 2. They have to pay overheads like salaries, office expenses, sales and marketing expenses which is around 5-6% of the AUM they handle

smaller the MF, higher will be such % but bigger MFs have different problem

China’s credit market: as crisis unfolds #Evergrande

From 2008 onwards, to match projected GDP numbers of 10%,

china made 300 cities which are loosely called ghost cities of china

Video of Al Jazeera Is from 2009,

This growth of GDP was fuelled buy Chinese PSUs and state govts taking loans to complete these projects

These loans were short tenor loans with frequent refinancing. This was done to keep a tight control over their finances and operations without letting the credit risk spread

I think both #nifty and #banknifty have made short term TOP

I see 15% correction from here from trading point of view

Long term view (2 yrs) is super bullish (just to avoid confusion)

Unless some short covering comes in last hour, I will go with simple Buy PE in both indices As said above, going home with simple ATM weekly Put buy on both the indices

expecting a good gap down tomorrow

Everyone wants them to be your number one priority

But they keep you on standby, sometimes last priority

Why so? are people so mean and selfish?

No, they are not this behaviour is part of our evolution process,

little before industrial revolution and if u go to stone age then all the more clear,

human beings were struggling for resources, food shelter etc,

People dont change

No matter how much we pray and expect them to change, in a short span of time, people don't change

As we are sum of our habits,

these habits are hard wired in our brain,

to change these wiring, requires either painful integration of new habits

+ Or sudden change in their life situation, especially sudden loss of job or loved ones etc

If a person is lazy, very unlikely that motivational books will help him

If a person is always late to meetings, expecting him to be on time is inviting lot of heart burn

The speed with which big Banks adapt to change in environment is commendable

Smaller banks and NBFCs either cant do that (because of regulation or lack of strategy)

#HDFCBank had a retail heavy book for last 20 yrs, now corporate book is bigger and expanding fast (53% now)

+ as HDFC Bank sees that, fintech riding on ponzi scheme of valuation and VC money, will eat away CASA, will eat away fee income related to retail

but regulation will not allow fintech to even look at corporate loans, so not only hedged, but double down with AT1 of USD 1 billion

is raising USD 1 BILLION in AT1 BONDS

Pls note Hdfcbk raised same amount for the first time ever.

All big banks are expecting tsunami of credit offtake and preparing dry powder

This govt pushed infra led growth will give unbelievable valuation

+ To big banks and NBFCs, who are in a position to raise cheap capital n have good rating

While smaller banks like #RBL, #BANDHANBNK, #ujjivan n nbfc like ibulhsgfin will have tough time

Burnout among traders , a thread
unlike what we think our brain’s capacity to take multiple decisions, to handle failures, to handle setbacks and to handle negative emotions is limited

+ just like our bodies get tired, so does our brain

burnout for traders, applies more to discretionary traders then to system traders but it does affect everyone

Listening to one of my all time fav songs

I love Manoj Bajpai and RGV to give joy in my life by their movies (2001-2002) when I was going thru hopeless depression
