Basics of stock investing – Introduction

I was planning to write a series on Stock investing for a long time but was unable to make the time for it. Now is a good time to start the series as the blog is getting a decent amount of viewers. I plan to mainly write in very simple terms so that the absolute layman can also understand what I am writing. However, I do feel that even some experienced professional’s can get some different perspective by reading this series because investing at the end of the day is an art.

Stock InvestingI will be writing the content and will also give reference books, articles, videos etc. At times I might also upload excel files to properly prove the theory with practical examples.

I really hope that this attempt will make a small contribution in making the Bangladesh capital market less speculative and rumor based. The retail investor had played the ‘bigger fool’ game for too long and are ending up losing everything. Until and unless they understand that they need to make their own investment decisions themselves or find out true professionals with accountability to manage their assets they will continue to lose.

Since this is my first attempt at something like this there could be mistakes and editing involved. So please forgive me in advance for such errors as I have a full-time job and can only work on my blog on my spare time.

  1. Super like.
    It would be better if u focus mainly BD perspectives, or compare BD scenario with outside scenario. Although i m not sure what u already hv in mind, but i m just saying….obviously u would know better how to present..

    1. I would have loved to do that. Unfortunately this might be construed as equity research by authorities and I might get into severe regulatory troubles. I will however try to use historical numbers of Bangladeshi companies so that people understand.

  2. I just realized that I never got to thank you for all your efforts and putting up with our requests and questions.

    I understand that you have a full-time job and that you’re mostly busy, so if you EVER need anything, ANY sort of help, please ask me and I’ll be at your service. I may not be of tremendous help since I feel I’m only a beginner but I will do everything in my capacity to assist. This will be my way of saying thank you and contributing to your cause. I’ll be honored to be a part of it.
