Due to the lack of knowledge, most of the people having investable funds goes to the bank for FD/SB or post office deposits. People are actually ignorant about the power of the share market investment. In today's world if you want to beat the inflation and increase the standard of leaving then you can't ignore the share market investments.

Another important source of gathering share market knowledge is through websites/blogs. You can also gain knowledge by reading market-related blogs, watching youtube videos in your leisure time. The official website of BSE (bseindia.com) and NSE (nseindia.com) and moneycontrol.com can also enhance your share market knowledge.

Selection of Stocks for Knowledge

It is always better to focus 4/5 stocks in the initial days while gathering share market knowledge. The list should include the top Sensex or Nifty 50 stocks which are always in news like RIL, Infosys, HDFC Bank, Axis Bank, TCS etc. You may be working for a company or bank or may be doing business with any company having listed shares. You can also select such names. Likewise, you can select 4/5 stocks for tracking on a regular basis.

Virtual Trading for Knowledge

To make your trading knowledge into more practical you can predict the selected stock price for the next day. Whether it will go up or down, its daily levels and reasons behind the movement. You should spend daily 30-40 mins in the evening to read or watch the daily market happenings and predicting your selected stocks.

While doing paper trading manually on a notebook or on website/app, it is very important to analyze each and every transaction you do, why your decision was correct or wrong.
