Yes, it is!
Corporate India has had one of the terrible quarters in terms of growth. Rather, last few quarters have consistently came in below expectations. Investors

Beware: If a securities analyst has been meted out this treatment, it could be meted out to you too as a customer or a shareholder of the said company.

Honorable members, seeking your views on this weekend thought:

Having a share trading/associated demat account with the subsidiaries of banks has the same safety as having an account with the respective bank at times of collapse of the bank.

However, how safe is having a trading account with private brokers? What if those firms undergo a scam or go belly up bankrupt? Market collapses may bring along with it such surprises. Brokers have earlier gone bankrupt leaving their clients in dire straits. So isn’t it to be safe than sorry? How safe is our money with them, and how ease is to liquidate the shares in the demat accounts associated with them in such scenarios? (Note that they are not demat service providers, it is either NSDL or CSDL, but we have given power of attorney to them for our demat accounts.) Have you ever thought about it?

I think the client money is kept in a separate bank account designated for client funds as mandated by SEBI. So, money and shares should be safe. Problem is how to liquidate them? I am not aware about procedure in such scenario....

WE have to be skeptical definitely before trusting with our hard-earned money.

If you are not happy when the stock markets are falling, you need to come up a lot. Be greedy when others are fearful.

If you are long without leverage, your possibility of adverse fate is just limited to the money invested, but if you're short your possibility of loss is infinite. Read the full story of a short trader who became a beggar overnight. And do read the reader comments as well at the bottom of the page.

Weekend thought: If Sensex retraces to 18000 (40% fall from the recent all time high of 30,024.74 on March 4, 2015) by February 2016, do you have your bullets ready? What are the animals that you are looking for (purchase list)? At what prices? High time to think it over and get ready.
