Cut Your Losses Fast


And here’s why……..

wealthymatters

What’s the chance that your losers will give the sort of chart busting returns to recoup your losses?In the mean time you are losing the chance to earn at least savings bank returns on your money.You don’t get to spend the sort of money your managers are losing you.Inflation is making the remaining less valuable.And you are losing out on money you could make by reinvesting in better avenues.

Its painful to lose money but more painful to stick with the losers.

Muhurat Trading


wealthymatters.com

The  festival of Diwali is associated with Laxmi, the goddess of wealth; it is considered an auspicious time for spending and earning money. The customary trading tradition on the day of Diwali is unique to India where markets open for a short duration in the evening to pay obeisance to Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity. This Muhurat Trading is a centuries old tradition. The day holds significance as it marks the beginning of the New Year, as per the Marwari tradition.Also the Gujarati new year begins a day after Diwali.

More often than not, the benchmark indices have ended higher, albeit by a small margin. The time for trading is specified by the exchanges and usually takes place for about an hour.This year,the  Muhurat trading  happened on 13 November between 3:30pm and 5:15pm.

Muhurat trading happens not only in stock markets but also commodity exchanges. Major commodity exchanges like MCX, NCDEX and others were open for trade from 5:30 pm to 8pm. Read more of this post

Savitri Jindal’s Assets


wealthymatters.comHave you ever wondered about the assets of the really wealthy?Personally I have always been interested in knowing just where wealthy people have their money.My take is that wealthy people didn’t get that way or don’t stay that way without knowing a thing or two about keeping and growing their money safely.That is why I was interested when I came across her statement, given before the returning officer, while filing her nomination papers in 2009 for the Haryana Legislative Assembly elections.

Savitri Jindal is India’s richest woman. She is the widow of the late O.P.Jindal.In her statement given before the returning officer,Savitri Jindal states that she has moveable property worth Rs 17.75 crore and immovable property worth Rs 25.94 crore.I think it’s interesting to see how much of her money she has in a liquid form.Compare this to our asset allocation.Most of us are bound to have most of our money stuck in our houses.A house is a necessity, but it makes sense to acquire one’s fortune and then splurge on fancy houses rather than try to become wealthy by sinking money in our homes.

Savitri Jindal does not own a car.I think this lady shows us women a way out of owning a depreciating asset-claim you don’t drive.Having a car at one’s disposal is good but owning it might not be so wise wealth-wise.Keep the luxury car purchases for after you reach the stage of acquiring luxury homes.
