Free Tips and Calls dont make you money

Tips are pieces of information that come from questionable sources with no known way of tracing them. The issue of using tips for profit goes beyond the issue of right or wrong. The real issue is the need to function as an independent, self-contained trader.

Once traders relinquish their autonomy by relying on tips, they might well start to work for someone else. They become, in a sense, employees of the tip giver. As a trader with a vested interest in the markets, it is better to make money by correctly analyzing the markets yourself. Then you become the master of your own destiny.

On the other hand, if you learn to make money by relying on tips, you are no longer free to trade any market. You are dependent on your source, who in turn is dependent on his or her source, and so on.

The argument for using tips is that you can take one tip and ride it all the way to several thousand rupees of profits. However, in the process of making this gains, you forget about doing anything else. You no longer try to apply fundamental or technical analysis to market situations. You no longer treat the market as business.

Good tips are given to only a few, bad tips are given to everyone. The next time time you hear a tip, think again.


  1. That was a well written article. It is better to invest/trade ourselves instead of relying on tips.

  5. But it is always easier to use someone else's work, isn't it? Well written post. Thanks for the non-tip. LOL

  6. it is a good point. analyzing the financials is a much more reliable way of picking likely winners than trying to catch a hot tip

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.
