Just be careful about one thing. Don’t learn the bad habit of being careless about your capital. Retail investors always fail to protect capital in trading. Risk doesn’t mean you don’t have to protect capital. Virtual trading has the risk of giving you those bad habits.

If everyone will win, then nobody will make money as it is a zero sum game. smile

Not true,else stock market indexes & economy size would remain fixed. As a country grows,its economy size as well as its stock market grows too.

How do you think a stock price goes up or down? Somebody sells it, somebody buys it. If number of buyer is greater than sellers then stock goes up, otherwise it goes down. Any one of them makes a profit other one simply looses. Only option trading is not a zero sum game, option premium is associated with that. It’s a cold hard fact bro. 🙂 If you see economy is going up, then somebody’s living got killed. For example before automobiles came, there were bullock carts in India. Raja Maharaja used horse carriages. There must be a big size economy going on behind those businesses. Automobile came, the people associated with those businesses lost their job. But national economy went up as driving an automobile is more economical and efficient than driving a bullock cart. Right! Let’s take a modern example. Before drones were dope, helicopters were used to take photographs of ocean along with a bigass camera and a photographer. Amateur people are running the online place, they can’t possibly afford a chopper and a photographer. Drone came, now professionals are using Drone in some cases. People are saying AI has killed the job of pilot and the photographer. Not entirely true though, because flying those drones need pro hands and pilots make a fine Candidate for it. But think about it. Everytime something goes up, something goes down. 🙂 Some win, some lose. It’s evolution.

If a non F&O stock opens gap up by 10% in the morning, then no one looses…Only the buyer who has it in portfolio gains. So equities trading is not always zero sum game.

One gains on paper. Then trading happens. Winners and losers are selected. Perfect zero sum game. 🙂
Edit: Man I googled it. Yes you are right. https://www.investopedia.com/terms/z/zero-sumga... trading is not always zero sum game. 🙂
Edit2: say my Hindustan Foods opened gapped up tomorrow at 730₹. Yes, the persons having it in their portfolio gain. But to realise the profit I have to trade. Right! Then the price will fluctuate. Those who didn’t have Hindustan Foods might try to buy n sell. The gain will be considered momentary only.
What I was trying to say is, our gain is someone’s loss. For e.g. I sold my Hindustan Foods and someone must have bought it. If the number of buyers become more than number of sellers then stock price gonna further surge. Then I ll repent for it. And if I just dump my share n share price go down the buyer ll be stuck with the share. That’s the risk we take here. Main point is one’s gain is someone’s loss. If the price remains at 730₹, then it ll be considered to hit upper circuit, no sellers all buyers. Nobody really gain. And that’s why it’s not advisable to invest in such stocks. Yes, one plus point is if I wanna book my profit then I can. One ll get acquainted with these as one progresses.

Creation is always preceded by destruction,even this planet Earth followed the same principle. What matters is the end result of this process. You are right about somebody’s gain will be somebody’s loss in stock market but you are seeing it in a limited way.E.g. xyz company stock being sold at 100 5 years ago compared to its current price of 500.At both times there are gains as well as losses but the total amount is increased because of economic growth. Zero sum game on the other hand is an entirely different matter altogether. Check out the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grow_the_Pie_(p...e)

Then please explain the economic disparity around the globe. 100 shares worth 100₹ five years back now costs 50000₹ now. The seller won’t see a dime of it. And you talk about economy growth n stuff. It happens. Once one wins, a new trend becomes popular n everyone follow that suit. And when it comes to stock market, there is a reason behind 95% lose money. 🤣🤣🤣 Let me put it in this way. Say the company I invested in is involved in some public place development stuff, and coincidentally you are the seller. Now I am richer by 40000₹, but we both avail the same service. It’s the case everywhere. Fine. But someone pockets the money and someone empties one’s pocket in the process. And it’s absolutely a zero sum game. You can’t deny it. 🤪 And economy strengths, the person who lost money becomes a part of the economy, he works hard, he improves his skills. And then he too become successful. Well, that doesn’t happen Everyday, does it? But in ideal conditions it should happen. We can argue on this again and again. But I don’t see any further discussion is needed here. Whatever one wants to believe, is allowed, this is a free country. I wish people discussed about companies like this. Dragging one into unnecessary arguments is kinda weird. I asked about Hindustan Foods, however nobody gave a single opinion about it.
Do you invest in stock market?

I am not an economist & neither are you so like you said,whatever one wants to believe. sunglasses

I only came across hindustan foods on moneycontrol forum but beyond that no idea.Judging by its share price pattern in last 1 year it seems overpriced to me just like Balram Chini Mills.As long as the rally continues,it is good but once the rally is over & someone is stuck with a high price purchase then it may prove to be a bad investment.

I did invest in shares but currently not doing any fresh investment & just trying to minimize my losses from Yes Bank fiasco by patiently waiting for it & my other stocks to climb.

Hindustan Foods, given the business model it has, is not expensive at all. Contract FMCG manufacturing is a very good business model. Hindustan Foods gave me 60% returns. I really don’t know whether to wait or not. Let’s see.

But FMCG is also one of the most sensitive sectors to overall economy condition of India. Rural area sales which were the star drivers of FMCG growth in past are slowing down & given the current volatile nature of world politics & Indian economy,one can’t be sure of continuing rally in Hindustan Foods. Of course if one times his entry & exit correctly then I think it is a good option but it certainly is not a safe option like hdfc bank/reliance/kotak etc where one can buy & forget for 5-10 years despite the up-downs in between & still be sure of getting good amount of profit.

This is a contract manufacturer. Clients are Hindustan Unilever, Reckitt Benickser etc. People ll keep on using those products. 🙂 That’s the beauty of FMCG sectors. And yes Hindustan Foods share is a very small one, and volumes are really low
