Your money could double in no time, or you could lose all your money. You are caught between two Emotions… Greed and Fear…..What should you do?
How can you play safe in the stock market? Is it possible to play safe or is it just a dream? Yes… It is possible for you to invest in stocks in a safe manner. You must invest in large cap stocks (stocks of reputed blue chip Companies), which are part of the stock market index. The most popular stock market index is the BSE Sensex and the CNX Nifty.
You need to start somewhere when you invest in the stock market. You also don’t want to lose your money.

This is a rule which you must never break. You earn an income, which is your salary and some other income like rental income. You must first set aside money for your expenses. You then save money for an emergency. If any money remains with you, then you must invest.
If you invest the money you need for your daily expenses in stocks, you may be forced to exit from the stock market, in bad times. The stock markets have fallen down and most of your stocks are at all time lows. But there is a bigger problem. You have to eat and your children have to go to school. You are forced to sell your stocks at heavy losses, to meet your expenses.
