Trading and Investing

Trading vs investing which is better? There are always people who say that the safest way to make money in the stock market is by investing for the “long term”. Both investing and trading have their own advantages and disadvantages.

1. Professional traders can make money in any market condition. Unlike a long term investor who only makes money in bulls market and loses it in a bears market, a good trader can take advantage of whatever the market throws at them..

2. There is no law that says strong companies have to go up. People have a false image in their mine that if you own Reliance stock and they make a sale your stock goes will up. That is not the case. You could buy a stock that makes tons of sales and has great fundamentals and still lose money.
3. Successful traders base their conclusion off of price and the trends and patterns that it forms. This is a much better way to grow your money because what you ultimately make money from what the stock does not what the company does.
4. The mindset of holding onto a stock forever can actually hurt you. I have seen people with a long term prospective ride a Rs.500 stock down all the way to a Rs.50, because they are in it for the long term. As far as I am considered it not a good idea to hold a stock through a 90% decline in hopes that it might one day rebound no matter what your time frame is.
5. Actively trading can give you higher returns. If you are actively trading in the stock market you will be able to learn from your past trades. The more you learn the better a trader you will become and the higher returns you will make.
Having said all these, the Warren buffet has made consistent money by Investing only.Well everyone cannot become a Warren Buffet.

Your Bill Amounts Are Going To Increase From June 1, 2016

Service tax is a tax levied by the government on service providers on certain service transactions, but is actually borne by the customers. It is categorized under Indirect Tax and came into existence under the Finance Act, 1994. Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, in his budget announcements proposed to impose a cess, called the Krishi Kalyan Cess, @ 0.5% on all taxable services. The present rate of service tax will be hiked to 15 per cent from June 1, 2016, from 14.5 per cent. Take a look at what gets expensive:



Phone Bills: Your phone bills are going to go up. So, pay a good 15 per cent now on service tax on phone bills.

Restaurant Bills :If you are dining in a restaurant that already has service tax applicable, you are going to pay more on your eating out. Though 0.5 per cent on a single bill may not mean much, frequent diners may end-up paying a lot during the year.

Travelling: You will have to pay more for air travel, as there is a service tax on tour operators and travel agents.
