Planning to be an investor? Here’s how you should start your investment journey.

Investing in the stock market – that’s what anybody focused on increasing his wealth wants to do. Before you do that, you have to understand your role when you enter the stock market. Ask yourself, who are you? Are you an investor, or are you a trader? Because the journeys of an investor and a trader are different in the stock market. 

In this article, One of the best investment advisory will guide you through the essential steps to start your investment journey in the stock market. Start with the following:

Define Your Investment Goals 

Every successful investor begins with a clear purpose. Consider what you aim to achieve with your investments. 

  • Are you looking for long-term wealth accumulation or short-term gains? 
  • Do you want to invest for retirement, or fund your child’s education? Define your purpose clearly. 

Understand the basics and educate yourself 

  • Learn what stocks are, how markets work, and key investment terminology. Study the fundamentals of the company – the Market Capital, the P/E and P/B ratio, the ROI, the Book Value, Profit after Tax, and Debt. 

Do a back-study of the top 500 companies

  • Make a list of the top 500 companies. 
  • Starting from the inception, calculate the CAGR for every 10 years to date. When you do this, you will understand how a company is performing in the long run. 
  • Make your observations and then decide on investing in companies that give CAGR.

Study the Swings of a particular stock 

  • Pick up a stock that has been in the market for a long time. 
  • Study the price movement of the stock. Some stocks shoot up in the beginning and then taper down. Some stocks show a downswing in the beginning and then gain momentum. Study each swing and see how the stock behaves. This will give you an idea of the Simple Return that you can get. 
  • Compare it with the CAGR study that you have done. 

Based on your study and observations, you will get a clear idea of when to enter a stock if you are starting late.

Start Small and Diversify 

Do not put all the eggs in one basket. 

  • Have a diversified portfolio to minimise risk. Invest in a mix of stocks from different sectors and industries. 
  • Start with a small amount. 

Be Patient but monitor your investment

Avoid the temptation to chase quick profits:

  • Once you decide on your stock based on your CAGR and SWINGS study, be patient.
  • Don’t let market fluctuations or short-term losses discourage you.
  • Focus on your long-term goals and stay committed to your investment strategy.

As we said before, you have to be ready to play long innings in the game of investment. With continuous learning, patience, and a well-defined strategy, you can work towards achieving your financial goals and securing a brighter financial future.
