Is it possible for a common man to make money more than term deposits, mutual funds, PPF, Post office schemes, Government Bonds and Index funds.
Lot of people will tell you, it is very hard and you risk losing your capital.
My advice is that you can do it as long as you’re willing to put in the time and effort.
One of the worst myths out there is that the market is always rational and makes sense. This is not true; on any given day the market can be totally wacky for reasons that do not make sense. Sometimes stocks go up when they should have gone down, and sometimes entire sectors move for ridiculous reasons.
If you are always on look out for 5% dip from earlier highs and jump in when others are fleeing and jump out when people are coming around you can do it.
