  4. I attended ISM Thrive, the first ever student conference at Moti Nagar, Delhi. I loved talking to students from all over the country. Trading often is too isolated. It is so refreshing to talk face to face with people who understand what you are going through. This is a must event for students and I hope ISM can pull this off every year.

  5. Best institute for Stock market training and trading. Have been several different Stock trading schools. This is the best with instructors teaching you the real strategy from various equity markets.

  6. Had an amazing week this past week at the Star Trader Class offered at ISM Institute of Stock Market. Many thanks for the wonderful staff for their exceptional hospitality they showed me and the students all week. The live stock trades being presented from the front of the room and the student’s ability to be Hands-On and participate in them made for a great learning atmosphere. The students enthusiasm and participation also contributed to an exceptional learning environment. I would strongly recommend this ISM to anyone interested in taking their stock trading.

  7. I have zero experience in the financial or investing world at all and they were thrilled, calling me a “blank canvas”. Everyone at ISM welcomes you into the family right away and it truly is a community. The counselors and instructors do an excellent job of coming beside us where we are at with no judgement and lots of patience. I have a lot of work and practice to do, but they are encouraging and I feel confident and comfortable going to any of them for help because they all want me to be successful trader.

The information and experience is priceless. I wish I would have entered these courses five or ten years ago. #NSE #BSE #SEBI

  24. Understanding the stock market and trading could be very difficult unless you have a great mentor. At, ISM I felt like I got all the resources one need to learn to trade. Questions I wondered like Is trading stocks gambling? Why invest in stocks? What are equity shares? How does the stocks react to news? Why is Indian stock market falling? How do I start with stock trading? Where can I learn stock marketing? Why does the potential Brexit so heavily impact the U.S. stock market? What is the safest way to invest in stock market? What are bonds in the stock market? Which is the best book to learn stock market strategy? When did you started investing in stock markets? When is the next stock market crash? I’m interested in the (Indian) stock market. Where should I begin? and so on

  25. My decision of becoming a stock trading student at ISM Institute is the best thing I ever chose – in my LIFE. I am generally in the prime time of my life and having the particular stock trading skill will help me develop my life goals.

  28. I personally feel that Alok deserves an honorable acknowledgement by ISM Institute for his outstanding role as an instructor. He went above and beyond to ensure that no student in his recent Online Futures class was left behind. I could not watch the live session but after watching the recorded videos, there was no question left unanswered. He took pride in teaching this class, and I am sure all the students walked away feeling very confident and delighted about Alok’s ability to ensure that at the end of the session everyone was in better shape regarding trading Futures.” sANJEEV Mehta

  29. ISM possess a vast network of Master Instructors steeped in trading experience. Their collective knowledge, insight and passion for teaching truly made each class feel like a World Class learning experience. My only regret is waiting this long before starting with the Institute of Stock Market. Before one year, when I looked into ISM, I was a little concern about the cost. However, this experience reminds me of the adage: “education is expensive until it’s compared to the cost of ignorance.” The education we received from ISM has had a profoundly positive affect on our family’s approach to financial health and wealth.

  30. It has been a great year, learned so much about trading and earned too frankly… all thanks to ISM Institute of stock market, perhaps the best stock market institute in delhi..

  34. I would like to shed some light on – how i learned stock market
    Here I would like to tell you a story to start trading in stock market!

    Tennis is something I closely follow, a very important trait investors can draw from this great game

    1. Once Roger Federer was winning almost everything, he was literally unstoppable with talents never seen before. Then he started to lose to one man, Rafael Nadal. Tennis experts analysed just one reason why, Nadal uses to create doubts in Federer’s mind about his conviction on his abilities. It took 10 years until Federer came up with a solution to his doubts that he had a weaker backhand that cant handle Nadal’s forehand. Federer has now won 6 of their last meetings. The culprit of self doubt was to that extent that once he missed a backhand against Nadal, he almost never played that shot in the match.

    2. When Nadal started to win almost everything there came Djokovic who created a doubt in Nadal’s mind that his serve is too poor to handle a baseliner return from Djokovic. This doubt led Nadal loosing 8 matches in a row to Djokovic. It took some years for Nadal to improve himself to handle Djokovic better.

    Self doubting can be really harmful in investing also. Markets always put doubts in our mind to doubt ourselves. We dont doubt our convictions when the share price rises. But as soon as price starts falling our mind is engulfed with a whole world of doubts on our abilities. Like Federer improved to face and beat Nadal, like Nadal improved to handle Djokovic, we also can do just one thing, improving ourself, improving our behaviour, our knowledge. If conviction is a borrowed one, only God can save us.

  35. We all understand that a share in market parlance is part ownership in a company. So if a company has issued 100 shares and you own 1 share then you own 1% stake in the company. The big question is how to invest in shares and how to invest in share market? Let us also grasp what is stock market, how to invest in share market and how to buy shares in India. Let us also look at equity markets and how to buy shares in Indian equity market.

    What is stock market and is it different from share market?

    A stock market is a gathering of buyers and sellers of stocks in a single platform. Before BOLT was introduced in 1995, people used to trade standing in the trading ring. Nowadays, all trading happens in computer terminals at the broker’s office or on the internet. Share market and stock market is one and the same thing.

    Share Market Basics

    Before starting to invest in stocks, it is important to learn about what the share market is and how it works. It is where shares of different companies are traded. In India, there are two primary exchanges; the National Stock Exchange (NSE) and the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).

    What is the difference between primary markets and secondary markets?

    When a company comes out with an initial public offer (IPO) it is called the primary market. The normal purpose of an IPO is to list the stock in the share market. Once the share gets listed it starts trading in the secondary market. Buying and selling shares is largely like buying and selling any other commodity.

    How are shares priced in the market and who determines the price?

    The market determines the price of the share. Normally, share prices go up when the company is growing very fast or it is earning very good profits or it gets new orders. As demand for the stock picks up more investors want to buy the stock at higher prices and that is how the price goes up. Price of share is determined by demand and supply.

    What are Stock Indices?

    Thousands of companies list their shares on the Indian share markets. From these, a few similar stocks are grouped together to form an index. The classification may be on the basis of company size, industry, market capitalization, or other categories. The BSE Sensex includes 30 stocks and the NSE comprises 50 stocks. Others include sector indices like the Bankex, market cap indices like the BSE Midcap or the BSE Small cap, and others.

    What is offline trading and what is online trading?

    How to purchase shares offline and how to purchase shares online? Online trading is all about buying and selling shares on the internet sitting in the comfort of your office or your home. You just need to log into your trading account and you can buy and sell shares. Offline trading is trading by visiting your broker’s office or by telephoning your broker.

    What is the role of a broker in the share market?

    The broker helps you execute your buy and sell trades. Brokers typically help buyers find sellers and sellers find buyers. Most brokers will also advise you on what stocks to buy, what stocks to sell and how to invest money in share markets for beginners. They will also assist you in how to trade in stock market. For that service, the broker is paid brokerage.

    Can anybody buy and sell shares in the sharemarket?

    Any person who is competent to enter into a contract can buy and sell shares in the market. You need to open a trading account with a broker and you can buy and sell shares in the stock market after the trading account is opened?

    Is the trading account same as the demat account?

    There is an important difference between the two. Trading account is where you execute your buy and sell trades. The demat account is where your shares are held in custody. When you buy shares in your trading account, your bank account gets debited and your demat account get credited. The reverse is true when you sell shares.

    What is meant by trading and investment?

    The fundamental difference is that trading refers to short term buying and selling of shares whereas investment refers to long term buying of shares. A trader normally tries to churn the money rapidly whereas the investor tries to buy a good stock in the sharemarket and waits for the stock price to appreciate.

    How to invest with little money in India in the share market?

    There is no minimum investment required as you can even buy 1 share of a company. So if you buy a stock with a market price of Rs.100/- and you just buy 1 share then you just need to invest Rs.100. Of course, brokerage and statutory charges will be extra.

    Why do we have to pay statutory charges to the broker?

    Statutory charges like GST, stamp duty and STT are imposed by either the central or the state government. The broker does not get these payments. The broker just collects these on your behalf and deposits it with the government.

  36. In 1930, During the great depression, there was a family who was struggling with their lives and after so many efforts one of the family member (father), failed to get hired at the family grocery store. Without a job, and without any money after a run on the banks, the family of four ran up a tab of grocery bills at the store to put food on the table, and even then, his mother sometimes skipped meals. Among the family, there was a little boy who was very depressed to see his family’s situation.
    Somehow times passed and the family gradually achieved a financial health which was worth to live. Father started a small stock brokerage firm. Young boy started showing an aptitude for numbers. He became obsessed with timing everything, calculating odds, even tallying the frequency of the letters that appeared in the bible most
    frequently.

    The only constant thing that the boy had was ‘I just don’t want to be poor’

    For money, he started collecting Coke bottles to make some money by selling them at a very young age.

  37. Good way of describing, and pleasant article to get facts about my presentation focus,
    which i am going to present in university.

  38. Everybody is aware about stock market Investment and trading but many few knows how to make money out of this. Indian stock market is growing day by day and we have seen huge money inflow in market after demonetization in India.

    We have also seen consistent growth in investment after 2008 fall. I have seen many people who made huge profits in last 5–7 years but the question is how they made huge profits in stock market. There are 2 types of things one can do in stock market. One is investment and another is trading.

    Investment: Investment is best for those who wants treat their capital as an long term investment. Because there are plenty of stocks in market which have given 100% to 1000% returns in last 10 years. If you see last 2 years history also, there are hundreds of shares which has risen more than 100% in last 2 years. Some of them are reputed and Nifty-Sensex and midcap stocks. I am mentioning few names which are popular and given very good results in last 2 years.
    Hindalco 400%

    VEDL 500%

    SBI 100%

    DLF 100%

    Tata steel 300%

    Ceat Ltd 200%

    There are plenty of stocks like this in market which has risen up 100% to 500% in last 2 years only. So if you purchase this kind of stocks at lower levels, you get very decent results in few months or years which no other investments are giving.

    So those who really want to do investment in market can buy good fundamental stocks at cheaper valuation and go for long term for better returns.

    2. Trading: This is something which is trending always because most of the people are impatient who don’t wants to invest and they want profit by trading because they can’t hold anything for long time.

  39. In early 1950s, there was a boy who loved to dance and became a professional dancer. The boy travels across world for various dance performances.

    He worked very hard and managed to learn different dance moves everyday so that he could become more popular and ultimately earn more money.

    He earned lots and lots of appreciation but unfortunately he failed to earn much money which was actually a major part of his dream. I mean everybody wants to get rich so was he.

    While having a full time job as a dancer he started new ‘meaningful ways’ to make money, tried various techniques, applied various concepts and finally ended up with ‘Stock Market’ because he thought that this is the only ‘meaning way’ to make money.

  40. My uncle purchased Maruti Suzuki 800 in the year 1998.

    I asked him: “Why did you purchase Maruti in 1998?”

    “Becuase it was the best entry segment car in India and had a great market report. The cost was reasonable, the mileage was great and the customer service was fantastic.”

    In 2003, Maruti Suzuki has an IPO. The stock rose from the level of 160 in 2003 to 7500 in 2018–19. If he had also invested the same amount in buying the stock, with 40+ times return, Rs 2 lakh would have been valued Rs 80+ lakh.

    My brother in law is a distributor of Shree Cement company. They have taken the distributorship in 2008.

    I asked him: “Why did you take Shree Cement distributorship?”

    “Their product quality was good and they were one of the fastest growing companies. The management was dynamic and the sales and marketing team was impressive.”

    After the recession in 2008, Shree Cement stock was trading at the level of Rs 300–400. In 2018–19, it is trading at the level of 16000–17000. If he had also invested some amount in the share price, he would have received almost 50 times return in 10 years.

    I started wearing Jockey underwear for the last 10 years. It was the time when people started wearing branded underwear. I remember people wearing low waist jeans to ensure that the word “Jockey” is visible. It was a “craze”.

    For me, it is the most comfortable underwear ever. I still wear the same brand.

    Page industry ( the parent company of Jockey) share price has moved from the level of 450 in 2008 to 21000 in 2018–19. If I had the wisdom to invest in such a quality product, I would have received 45+ times returns on my investment in 10 years.

    My dad loves Titan watches. He purchased his first Titan watch in 1988. Since then he has been buying Titan watches. He even buys Titan watches for gifting purpose.

    When I ask him: “Why do you buy Titan watches?”

    Dad: “I just love the product quality. I have been wearing the watches since 15–20 years and they are still working fine. The price is also reasonable.”

    Titan share price was trading at the level of between 2-10 until 2005. In 2018–19, it is trading at the level of 900. That’s more than 90 times return in 14 years.

  41. I’m gone to say to my little brother, that he should also pay a visit this website
    on regular basis to get updated from hottest reports.
    stock market institute in Delhi

  42. I was having literally zero knowledge about stock markets and other investment options. But things changed when I left my job to appear for competitive exams and wanted to invest my savings somewhere. I was completely clueless where to invest my hard earned savings of three years.

    It was clear in my mind that I wont be taking help from investment advisers. So I decided to learn about various investment options available.

    I started with mutual funds because my dad already has huge capital invested in other traditional & risk free options like gold and bank FDs. It took me just 4 days to learn everything about mutual fund investment. I was now able to decide best mutual funds based on my goals and review mutual funds across all categories based on funds objectives, fund house, AUM, trailing and annual returns, fund manager efficiency, sector diversification, expense ratio, standard deviation, alpha, beta and exit load of the mutual fund. From zero to an expert in just 4 days. I invested 25% of my capital into mutual funds.
    Now as I learnt about mutual funds I got interested in learning about stock markets. Because mutual funds are nothing but diversified investment in stocks. But stock market has in itself so many options to explore such as long term investment, intraday and derivatives trading etc. Trading was way too risky for me to enter as a beginer and so I decided to learn fundamental analysis with the aim to invest 50% of my capital for long term(2–3 years). It took me 15 days 2 hours daily to learn everything about stock fundamentals. I was now able to read company balance sheet, financial statements. I was able to identify undervalued and overvalued scripts. I was able to forcast stock price range after 2–3 years. On the basis of my learning i invested in Meghmani Organics at Rs 45/share and Trident at Rs 72/share. Both the scripts have given good returns to me.
    With 25% capital left. I decided to learn about intraday trading. I thought that to learn trading wont take too much time as the basic concept of trading is just to buy low and sell high. But I was completely wrong. Trading is much more than just buying low and selling high. I got to know about it after losing each and every trade that I entered in paper trading. I learnt that trading is just 5% theory and 95% about emotional control, risk and money management, overcoming one’s greed, having strict stoploss and targets predefined before taking a trade. The knowledge of indicators and various trading strategies wont help you in any way if you are new to trading. Trading requires discipline. You get discipline from experience.
    From strong dislike towards trading to finding love towards it. I learnt so many lessons from paper trading. Few of the lessons are:

    Initially I used more than 8 indicators in order to predict stock movement. During paper trading I learnt that those multiple indicators just try to confuse us. Now I trade purely on price action with just couple of indicators. This makes our entry less confusing and clear cut signals are generated according to our strategy.
    Do not put stop losses and tragets just in mind. Put them in the system. This is very important. Because while paper trading i noticed that while the stock moved in my direction I kept increasing my target in order to get maximum profits and when the stock price approached my stop loss I kept adjusting it expecting the stock to reverse and hit back my targets 😛 This is human tendency we dont accept losses and want more and more gains.
    Risk to reward ratio and money management. This is very very important lesson i learnt while doing paper trading. This single step will assure that you will remain in the game no matter how many losses you incure in your trades. Please read previous answer by me on this topic. You cant ignore this if you want to survive in markets.
    Initially I use to have multiple strategies with no accuracy and back testing. But now I learned that you only need to have couple of strategies but those should be well tested and made perfect over the period of time.
    Avoid stocks in the news and stocks suggested by tv channels. These stocks have high chances of insider trading. While paper trading I incured huge losses in these stocks.
    Trade the stocks having high volumes and refer Open interest data.
    Trend is your friend. Never try to trade against the trend if you are beginner.
    Accept stop losses and move ahead. Stop losses should be treated as your soldier, who prevent you from making huge loss. They help keep you in the game. Without them you are vulnurable.
    As a beginner just take couple of trades each day. Do not over trade. Only your broker will benefit from them.
    If you notice I learnt so many things about trading without losing a single rupee that is the ultimate power of paper trading. If I had traded with real money then probably I would have learned the same lessons but by paying thousands or lakhs.

    Lastly, i will say experiment everything you learned during paper trading. But when it comes to real money just execute your tested ones.

    Happy learning !!

  43. Basically, markets provide a platform to buy and sell things. We buy items, available for sale (of course, someone is selling them) or we propose to sell our items to people (those, willing for those items, buy them). The price of an item is determined by its demand and the available supply. If the demand is more than the actual supply, the price of an item is inflated while it is deflated, if demand is less or the item holders are selling.

  44. [Must read. The Monkey and magician story.]

    Once a magician came to a village to loot the village.

    Magician- I will give you 1000 rupees per monkey. Will you catch monkeys for me?

    Villagers- Yes! We will. [They felt happy for making easy money.]

    [Magician started buying monkeys. After some days the population of monkeys went down. It was difficult for villagers to find monkeys.Villagers stopped catching monkeys and started firming again.]

    Magician- I will give 2000 rupees per monkey.

    [Again, villagers started catching monkeys. But the supply decreases because it was hard to find monkeys. Some villagers found and got rich. But many of the villagers went to firm again.]

    Magician- I need more monkeys. Please find some.

    Villagers- We need more money. We want 5,000 per monkey as there are few monkeys left.

    [The supply went down, demand went high, so villagers started charging more. The price went high.]

    Magician- Okay. I will give you 5,000 per monkey.

    Villagers provided some monkeys for 5,000 rupees. There was no monkey left in the jungle.

    Now, the demand was in peak. Villagers asked the magician for 10,000 per monkey and they decided to take monkeys from another village.

    Again price went high.

    Magician played a trick.

    He said his assistant to sell all the monkeys he had for 7, 500 to the villagers.

    The demand was high.

    Villagers wanted to make more money selling monkeys at 10, 000 to the magician.

    So, they bought all the monkeys in ignorance from the assistant of the magician.

    Now, the villagers had all the monkeys but the magician had left the village with money.

    Now, there was no demand as the magician had gone.

    The monkeys were just useless for the villagers.

    Now, the price for the monkeys was zero.

    Demand went down, price went down.

    This is how price of the stock increases and decreases.

    And some stock market scams also take place this way.

    Manipulators buy stocks in bulk to show the demand, the stock price goes high. When people start buying and the price is in peak, manipulators sell their stock and make money.

  45. would love to learn more about the stock market courses in Delhi, from a good institute.. I have heard your name a lot and have a lot met few of your trading students…. I would love to learn too..

  46. I’ll tell you some of my own experiences and you be the judge:

    I worked alongside a retired Divisional General Manager from Canara bank when I was around 16 years old. Being from the core finance side, I thought he would understand the nature of equity markets very well and looked forward to learning from him. At the time, I was becoming increasingly curious about stock markets and he would promptly discouraged my thinking process and described instances of them being scam ridden and unreliable as a source of wealth creation. Instead of success stories, I was told tales of several bankruptcies of investors who trusted the system “too much.” He gave me examples from Harshad Mehta era.
    One of my wise & successful uncles who everyone approaches for career and investment advice always refers to stock markets as “white collar gambling” and that trading should be treated equivalent to horse racing gambits. Apparently, the money making streak of successful traders were flukes and statistics prove that the system was created to benefit only the companies and brokers. Do it if you want to be a “tie wearing gambler”, he says.
    A friend’s mom was always pissed off with her husband for spending most of his time investing and trading the stock markets because he took all the cash flow out and put it in something which wouldn’t give meaningful dividends. She thought he was wasting away his time and nobody should ever choose that path in life!
    A renowned Chartered Accountant in Bangalore who I happened to interact with, doesn’t trust stocks. It’s not hard to guess why; because the books can be manipulated.
    One well to do lawyer swore to never buy a single share in his life because apparently, he does not like to invest in something which is out of his control or who’s outcome cannot be determined by him. I was made to listen to a long list of reasons why it is absolutely ludicrous to own equity regardless of whether it goes up or down.
    These are just a few experiences which show that many people from all walks of life are dead against owning stocks for their own reasons. We must recognize that they come from a generation where the stock markets were fraught with scams and tricks in which many of them and their friends got stuck in. However, their collective feedback has a direct impact on the next generation who is looking for ways to make money. I am sure that all their children will adopt that negative bias due to feedback from their fathers. In the last 25 years, our markets have evolved exponentially and regulation is now stricter than ever. I’m sure that positive developments in the recent years don’t give solace to people who lost their money in they bygone era. But the preaching continues to this day.

    Oh and by the way, 3 out of 5 people I have mentioned above ended up making fortunes in a few stocks which they choose to conveniently ignore. For instance, my friend’s mom who I have mentioned above, lost her husband a few years ago but the shares in his demat account multiplied 8 – 10 fold since then and her income for retirement life is assured.
    The uncle I mentioned ended up making fortunes on VIP industries, RIL and SBI. He made way more than 3000% in each of these stocks.
    The Chartered account started investing in ELSS mutual funds to save tax and guess what? He raked in a cool 60% return in the last 3 years alone.
    Some other reasons why so few people invest in stock markets:

    Too much information that can confuse more than it educates.
    Lack of basic knowledge about how a company works. (Required to invest in equity).
    Lack of informative platforms to help people decide where to invest.
    Preference towards physical assets (Rapidly changing to financial).
    Tax incentives available are not known by the youth.
    Even BBA/BCOM/MBA degrees don’t on investing/trading.
    All this being said, surely but slowly things are changing as millennials understand that equity is the most powerful asset class to stay invested in in the long-run. If the markets are regulated properly and there is wealth created, then the millennials might ask their children to opt for equity over real estate or gold.

  47. Dad, “It is very risky. Mr. Sharma has already lost a lot of money. FD is the best option. It is safe and secure. If you have extra money then buy gold. If you have more money then real estate is the best option. It always appreciates. Mr. Sharma has made fortune in real estate after the stock loss.”

    Conclusion: In a country like India, most of the people are conservative. They do not even like to discuss money. Above all, most of the people do not have the knowledge of investing in the financial instrument. They are following the traditional way of investing from their forefathers.

  51. Technical analysis is the way of forecasting or analyzing the price movements of stocks and shares in a share market. This analysis brings about the scope for certain predictions that are totally based on the behaviour and movement of the stock prices in comparison with the market presence and previous moves with respect to the time frame. This analysis depends on the trend of the market and is a pretty essential concept considered by the active investors in the financial markets. An individual who is regarded as a professional in this technical analysis is called as a technical analyst and s/he can suggest the investors about their moves in the share market.

    “The essence of a market economy is that those that have failed to utilise their assets productively must yield that space to others that utilise their assets well. It is this process that enhances the overall productivity in the economy.”
