The current COVID-led decline is a great opportunity to build portfolios in the midcaps and small caps, Gautam Shah, Founder & Chief Strategist, Goldilocks Premium Research said in a D-Street Talk podcast with Moneycontrol.
Investing for our children is always a financial goal for all parents. We want the best of education for them, perhaps save a bit for their marriage or set aside a small corpus to get them going when they grow up and enter the work life. The sooner, you start, the better it is for them. But where should you start? In this Simply Save podcast, Parul Maheshwari, a Mumbai-based certified financial planner joins us to explain how to use the mutual funds (MF) route to save money for your child. Broadly speaking, Maheshwari says that there are two ways: You can either invest in your child’s own name. Or you could invest in your own name, like you do for other investments in general but earmark the folios in your records that they are in your child’s name, to avoid confusion. But Maheshwari says it’s always best to invest in your child’s name (as the primary holder), so that these folios are easily recognisable. “In times of emergency, when you need funds, you might just end up selling those mutual fuds that you had set aside for your child. Besides record keeping to that extent is always cumbersome. If your investments are in your child’s name, you would just naturally be hesitant to touch them,” she says.  Ensure you have a savings bank account in your child’s name. As per mutual fund guidelines, money can be invested in your child’s name, only if it comes from a bank account where you child is the primary holder. No joint holder or nominee will be allowed in a folio held by the minor. The guardian in the folio should be either parent (father or mother) or a court appointed legal guardian. You can start a systematic investment plan (SIP) in your child’s name. Maheshwari recommends open-ended diversified funds, instead of children-focussed MF schemes.  Do listen to this special podcast and also what to do once your child turns 18.
India is seeing a second wave of COVID-19 outbreak with daily cases touching 1,84,000. Amidst this, state governments like Maharashtra have begun imposing lockdown-like restrictions where non-essential offices, manufacturing units will stay shut. How will this affect your employment? In this episode of Future Wise, Moneycontrol's M Saraswathy talks to Aditya Narayan Mishra, CEO, CIEL HR Services to find out the impact of the COVID-19 case surge on jobs.
Speaking on the latest episode of “Moneycontrol Macro Minutes” podcast, Chief Economic Advisor Krishnamurthy Subramanian said that the government had been deliberately conservative in its forecasts for the current financial year. While not ruling out an economic intervention like last year should the need arise, Subramanian said any further measures announced would likely be on the fiscal support and capital expenditure side.
Nifty started the week on a bearish note with a fall of more than 3 percent in a single session on April 12. This was the largest single-day fall since February 26, 2021. Bank Nifty underperformed by a huge margin by plunging 5 percent.
The levels of 14,900–15,000 continue to remain a sturdy wall for Nifty and until we surpass it, major heavyweights may not give any sustainable up-move. On the lower side, 14,700 followed by 14,550 are immediate supports. The deciding factor in days to come has to be the financial space. For the last couple of weeks, the banking index has been hovering around its strong support zone of 32,200 – 32,400 which is the breakout point of the Budget day as well as the 89-day exponential moving average. It has managed to hold this till now and if any recovery has to take place, there will not be a better point than this. But, if any bottom (short or long-term) is formed, bulls may not get many opportunities to make a comeback. The more it challenges any particular support, the higher it creates the possibility of breaking it. Hence, all eyes would be on this space as it is likely to dictate the near-term trend of the market.
In this episode of Moneycontrol Macro Minutes, RBL Bank’s Chief Economist Rajni Thakur talks to Arup Roychoudhury on India’s economic outlook for 2021-22 amidst a surge in Covid-19 cases. Thakur says that the ‘second wave’ remains the biggest risk on the horizon for policymakers, and how it is dealt with will decide whether the projections made by the government and various agencies will hold true or not.
If you are a new-age investor who joined D-Street in 2020, Umesh Mehta of Samco Group has few ruled which one should consider while trading, he elaborated on them in the Market Podcast with Moneycontrol. The last year might have felt like a breeze as the only direction in which the market went was on the upside especially for someone who started trading in April. Well, things might not remain the same as the market goes through up and down cycles. Legendary investor once said that “Only when the tide goes out do you discover who's been swimming naked”. This was one reason which led to the fall of Harshad Mehta, a registered broker, back in ’90s. Harshad Mehta used the loopholes in the Indian Banking system & Bombay Stock Exchange transaction system to rig prices of dubious companies and defrauded Rs 5,000 crore from financial markets. A new Bollywood movie on Harshad Mehta with actor Abhishek Bachchan ‘The Big Bull’ is set to make its debut on April 8. “Harshad Mehta was a Street smart guy who was bullish on the economy, but with greed taking control, he overleveraged largely borrowed from financial institutions which led to the fall,” explains Umesh. Avoid over-leveraging is one key rule out 5 which investors should take note of while trading which could reduce your losses by 90%: 1) Overtrading/Leverage: The number 1 reason why traders across the globe are ruined is overtrading. Harshad Mehta is one example. Even large corporates have not been able to make up due to large amounts of debt in their balance sheet. Ideally, 1% of capital should be the loss he should bear, and for the seasoned player, it is 2%. 2) Don’t Mix Trading with Investment: Investors should avoid mixing trading with investments. If you lose in a trade it is better to book losses and move out rather than staying with the stock. 3) Black Swan Events: Yes, there will be events that might not be in our control, but as a trader, one should cover their open positions every day with a trailing exit or a stop loss. 4) Never average a loss: Investors should avoid averaging a loss. Averaging a loss is the biggest mistake. 5) Knee-jerk Reaction: There will be knee-jerk reactions to events such as news, earnings, etc. Sometimes the reactions are favourable while most of the time it might go the other way. It is best to avoid knee-jerk trading.

The Nifty50 on the weekly time frame charts has been in a consolidation mode for the past 4 weeks and has managed to hold above the 20-week SMA on a closing basis.On the daily time frame, we can see the prices hovering around the 20-Day SMA. On the options open interest front (15th April 2021 expiry), huge participation and open interest addition is seen in the 15200 calls.
Systematic investment plan or SIPs have become very popular among mutual fund investors. Nearly Rs 6,000 – 8,000 crore worth of inflows come into mutual funds every months through SIPs, even since December 2017. Up until then, only about Rs 3,000-4,000 crore of money used to come. But despite being a popular facility, there are many facts about SIPs that many of us still don’t know. For instance, SIP is not a separate product. It is a facility that all MF schemes offer.  It’s easy to start an SIP. Today, all mutual funds allow you to start an SIP with as little as Rs 1,000 a month. That’s all it takes to start an SIP; a facility that allows you to put money automatically, once a month. Infact some fund houses allow you to start an SIP with Rs 500 and even as little as Rs 100 a month.  Still, there are many unanswered questions. In June 2020, Moneycontrol did a study with CRISIL Ltd on SIPs that spoke about the merits of investing in SIPs for the long run. But many investors come across hurdles in the interim. For instance- and especially during the Covid-19 pandemic- many investors lost their jobs or saw a fall in their income. In such times, it’s hard to continue with SIPs. Some investors cancelled their SIPs in the face of other priority expenses they just couldn’t get out of. But how many days does it take to cancel an SIP? It’s common knowledge that despite submitting an SIP cancellation request, the SIP doesn’t get cancelled immediately. In many cases, one installment still goes out of our bank account.  And did you know that if you wish to withdraw from your fund, you don’t need to stop your SIPs? While your SIP continues, you can continue to withdraw from your scheme (from the accumulated corpus) as well as invest lumpsums as and when you wish. In today’s podcast, I am joined by Parul Maheshwari, a Mumbai-based certified financial planner. She will demystify SIP for us and bring us several unknown facets about SIP. 
The Robinhood rush which was seen in FY21 is likely to go down in the next financial year but there is a big shift seen in the rule-based trading which is likely to gain popularity in the next 10 years,  Kanika Agarrwal (Co-founder and Chief Investment Officer) at Upside AI said in the D-Street Talk podcast with Moneycontrol. Over 10 million new Demat accounts were opened in FY21 and a similar trend was seen in the US. “As we move into FY21 and people start going back to their day jobs, participation of ‘Robinhood investors’ – a wonderful term which got coined for new-age investors, will go down. The trend is already visible in the US,” says Agarrwal. The conversation which Upside AI had with the clients suggests they are looking for more sustainable solutions to manage the money. Like any MF, 1-2% is charged with the AUM as an advisory fee in terms of cost. Agarrwal highlighted that the big shift in the trend is going to happen in the next 10 years as rule-based systems in trading, investments will become more popular. “The trend is already visible in China as well as the US. The quant AUM in China rose to $100 bn doubled from 2019. In the US, we have value quant shops that are using quant-based models to do value investing. The AUM is roughly $100-200 bn,” explains Agarrwal.

From the last six trading sessions, Nifty has been locked in a small consolidation range which is between 14,600 and 14,900, respectively. The index has been consolidating between the band of 21 and 50-day exponential moving averages on the daily interval.
Nifty opened with an upward gap and traded with high volatility throughout the session on April 6. However, the last hour pullback action pulled the index higher and recovered some of the earlier losses. The index closed at 14,683.50 with a gain of 46 points (0.31 percent) while BSE Sensex gained 42 points (0.09 percent). This signifies that 14,500-14,400 still remains an important support zone to watch out for. Nifty has been broadly moving within 14,900-14,400, indicating sideways consolidation. For the last couple of sessions, it has been sustaining below the 20-day moving average at 14,786 and 50-day moving average at 14,789, indicating weakness as well as lack of confidence in market participants. The next higher levels to be watched are around 14,800-14,900. Any pullback towards 14,600-14,500 should be used as a buying opportunity. The daily RSI has turned sideways and any move above the 50 mark can improve the bullish momentum.
Nifty fell sharply on April 5 as rising COVID-19 cases and increased restrictions spooked investors. The index ended the day with a loss of 230 points at 14,637.80. However, from the intraday low, it recovered nearly 200 points and closed above its 50-day exponential moving average (EMA) which is placed at 14,634. It also closed above the weekly 10-period EMA which is placed at 14,631. In the derivatives segment, we have seen Put writing at 14,400-14,500 and these levels will act as strong support going forward. We believe that Nifty is in the strong support range of 14,400-14,600 and any correction from hereon should be utilised to accumulate long positions with the stop loss of 14,400. On the higher side, Nifty is likely to find immediate resistance in the range of 14,700-14,750 where 5, 10 and 20-day exponential moving averages are placed. It could aim for 14,883-15,000 if it closes above 14,750. Nifty Midcap and Smallcap indices have outperformed during the first two days of April. We expect their outperformance to continue in the coming weeks also. The focus of the traders should be on mid and small-caps rather than benchmark indices.
Last week, despite being a truncated one, was not at all short of action as we saw good traction in some of the individual pockets, especially on the last session. The index is currently undergoing a time-wise correction and hence, it remained in a small trading band throughout last week. As far as levels are concerned, 14,900, followed by 15,050 remain to be a sturdy wall, but the way charts are placed now, due to last Thursday’s late surge, the possibility of testing and even going beyond this cannot be ruled out. The hourly chart exhibits the configuration of a bullish cup and handles pattern and any sustainable move beyond 14,900 would strengthen this structure to attract some buying interest in the heavyweight constituents as well. This bullish structure will get negated if Nifty slides below 14,600 and hence, one should keep a close tab on how the market moves in the first half of this week. The levels of 14,800 and 14,670 are immediate supports. In the week gone by, the financial stocks did not participate much in Tuesday’s up move but they proved their significance on the last day as it single-handedly propelled Nifty beyond 14,800 towards the fag end on the weekly expiry session. This space plays a vital role if our benchmark has to move beyond the 15,000 mark. Apart from this, metal stocks had a mesmerizing rally throughout the week as some of the steel counters soared as if there is no tomorrow. The stocks from the cash segment did exceedingly well after a lull of nearly four weeks. It’s advisable to focus on such potential movers.
The future of trading is changing fast but the point is are investors also adapting to the change in the same way. Approximately 60% of the volumes on the NSE are generated via Co-Location, Algo services, as well as auto bots and the trend is only going to pick up, Vishal Mehta, CMT and founder of marketscanner.in on the sidelines of Traders Carnival 2021. Emphasizing on the concept of Systematic Trading, Mehta highlighted that he has now moved from discretionary trading to systematic trading which is rule-based to avoid human bias. The market is shifting the dimension from calling a broker to a more of automated systematic way of trading. To define ‘System’, Mehta explains that it should be an extension of you – the way you analyse, interpret info, etc. “Markets are nothing but a systematic transfer of money from an undisciplined trader to a disciplined trader. Warren Buffett said impatient to patient investors. But, when it comes to trading it is all about taking money from an undisciplined trader to a disciplined trader,” explains Mehta. “Investors should be disciplined in their approach and avoid jumping to new systems. Learning coding will also be a big help in tweaking the code, and don’t ignore risk management when trading,” he said.(Tune in to the podcast for more) Disclaimer: The views and investment tips expressed by experts on Moneycontrol.com are their own and not those of the website or its management.

Nifty witnessed a rising channel pattern breakdown on the daily chart. It seems to have completed its throwback and is now trading below its trendline resistance. The benchmark index on March 31 made a gap down opening tracking weakness in the global markets and closed one percent lower. The index, on the weekly chart, is locked within a rising channel pattern and is currently trading near the lower band of the rising channel pattern which will act as an important support zone in the weekly interval. For the last couple of trading sessions, the index has been trading within the 21 & 50-day EMA band and the momentum oscillator RSI (14) is indicating a negative slope. This technical setup indicates a mixed bias which can lead to a rangebound movement with a spike in volatility. India VIX seems to have flattened out in the range between 19 and 22 and is currently not producing any significant clues. The breakdown below 18 level will cool off volatility but the breakout above 23 level will shoot up volatility.
Banks may advertise their low home loan rates, but they add a credit risk mark-up. This mark-up depends on your credit score. If your credit score is good, then the mark-up is small. But if you have a bad credit score, you have to pay a loan rate higher than the advertised rate
Amidst the Coronavirus outbreak, close to 7 million people in India have lost their jobs and are seeking employment opportunities. Considering the rise in number of applicants for jobs, interviews are also getting increasingly competitive.So what do you do to make the cut?In this episode of Future Wise, Moneycontrol's M Saraswathy talks to Dr. Akhil Shahani, Managing Director, Thadomal Shahani Centre for Management, Shahani Group and CEO of edtech platform Ask.Careers on their new interview preparation application.
After an extended weekend, the Indian market began this week with sharp gains as the Nifty rose more than 2 percent to reclaim 14,800 level on the back of a sharp surge in IT counters along with FMCG, metal and pharma stocks. On the derivatives front, Put writers were seen adding hefty open interest at 14,600 and 14,700 strikes, while Call writers were seen shifting to higher bands, which point towards strength in the current rally. Now, 15,000 Call strike holds the maximum open interest of nearly 43 lakh shares, which should act as an immediate strong hurdle for the Nifty. On the technical front, the Nifty has once again managed to close above its short-term moving averages on the daily interval and witnessed a V-shaped recovery from the lower levels, which point towards the continuation of the rally in prices on short-term charts. In the upcoming sessions, 14,600-14,500 would act as strong support for the Nifty with bias likely to remain in the favour of bulls as long as 14,500 remains intact.

the narrator seems to be in a hurry and uses too many filler words. I preferred Sakchi Batra's narration.
