STOCK MARKET- Markets feel absence of 'illegitimate money,' honest pricing of the stocks may be the next

Suddenly last few days since announcement on demonetisation was made on live television by none other than country's Prime Minister, stock markets in India have been witnessing a significant fall in the volume of transactions. While some of the genuine retail investors have been shying away from taking fresh positions, a large number of 'dabba traders,' have now gone underground thus disappearing from making themselves available in the markets. An immediate result which is being felt--drastic fall in volume in the equity transactions. According to sources in the markets, many of the high-volume traders and other investors who settle their trades with their respective brokers in cash to avoid paying taxes, have reduced their transaction volume significantly fearing a crackdown by the taxmen. Also ongoing strong rumours on various possible crackdown operations apparently being thought in the corridors of power in Delhi, have led to further drop on transactions. In fact, sources tell us, the Finance Ministry along with the market watchdog, SEBI have put lakhs of DEMAT accounts under scanner due to heavy and unusual transactions during last few weeks, even before demonetisation move was made public.

The fight by the Centre against the black money menace has reduced liquidity in the markets to a significant extent. The bourses have reacted to the liquidity crunch in the last two trading sessions. The BSE Sensex has lost almost 1,200 points while the S&P Nifty has shed close to 400 points due to this radical move of the Central government. Angadiyas (local couriers) have also stopped their activities significantly thus hardly any cash ferrying activities are taking place across the country--while some are unhappy with the steps taken by the government, regular tax-payers have reasons to celebrate these days. It is expected markets to behave rangebound once the cleansing operations gets over in next one quarter or so and also honest prices for the stocks will be revealed thus bringing more retail investors in the markets who have been cheering the government move in recent times. The bubble has to burst be it in the equities of real estate sector--and with the announcement by the PM on the night of November 8, seems, the first phase towards bursting the bubble has been taken by the government. At least it has created enough panic leading to much scare among the 'wrong-doers' in the markets. A fall in the volume and fall in stock prices can be handle for now--an honest market is what the retail investors in this country deserve. Scaring away the 'dabba traders' is one of the good things which markets have recently witnessed. Watchers believe, there are more to come and retail investors really do not have reasons to panic even in case of a sharp fall.

1. Live Life the Positive Way
Everyone wants to be happy in life. Studies on Positive Psychology have shown that happy people are more creative and productive. They earn more capital and respect, enjoy a better life, have good family bondage and attract more friends as well as other people. They stay healthier and outlive their grumpy colleagues.
Blessed with reasonably sound health, economic security, good family support and friends, there is no valid reason anyone should be unhappy. Yet, some people possessing these virtues remain distressed.

2. You are Fortunate
Do not compare yourself with those who are better placed. Consider yourself fortunate to reach the level you have. Certainly, be ambitious, set realistic goals and try your best to achieve them but feel contented with what you eventually get. This attitude will give ultimate bliss.

Hi Friends:   The dark secret of the modern stock market.    -    Back to the beginning and the smart looking strategies how to beat the market:  Will they not allow you to make money in the stock market?  The sad answer is, the private investors and their professional helpers are essentially fighting for a positive piece of a negative cake.  The odds are against the investor.  Planning the exit of all positions and selling regularly, in other words becoming a trader, would improve his situation.  Of course, this is not easy, either.  You are still facing the competition of the market maker and his many dirty tricks.  He has the advantage and you and other traders are still trying to eat a negative cake.  To overcome this tough environment a trading method or system is necessary.  Don’t expect to be able to fend off the systematic advantages of others with impulsive decisions.  Moreover, you have to have an edge.  At least some elements must set your trading apart from what others do.  The market constantly adapts itself to the wisdom of the crowd.  A working system has to meander around the various traps of the market and still center around a real imbalance and exploit it.  Traps and imbalances are hidden.  If they were obvious for everyone they wouldn’t exist.

Kalaripayattu the martial art form of Kerala is regarded as the oldest and most scientific of its kind in the world. Training in combat is given at the Kalari (training school). The principles of Kalari education stipulate that training in martial art begins with an oil massage of the body which goes on until the body is agile and supple. Feats like chaattom (jumping), ottam (running), marichil (somersault) etc. are then taught, followed by the lessons in the use of weapons such as daggers, swords, spears, maces, the bow and arrow and so on.

Kalaripayattu training aims at the ultimate co-ordination of the mind and body. The traditional training in a kalari includes specialisation in indigenous medical practice too. Kalaris are also centers of religious worship. The general guidelines to be followed in Kalaripayattu demand that once the course is complete, a person should undergo oil massage and engage in the practice of the feats regularly to help him keep in shape
