  1. Lakshheish M Patel:

    When a share priced Rs.100 moves with price 20 steps up and down , then it is better to come out of it and sell the stock completely as it is slidind downward and mostly its downfall is not realised by traders. Classic example today can be seen in NALCO shares which has come down from Rs.130 to Rs.80 in just 2 months by slithering and slowly . Market fools this way only. Averaging has brought traders loss only. NEVER BUY WHEN CHART SHOWS DOWNWARD TREND no matter how much it has fallen

  2. Michael Caldwell:
