Citizens Awareness Group in collaboration with National Stock Exchange under the aegis of Securities Market Awareness Campaign by SEBI organized Investor Awareness Program in Community Centre, Sector 40 Chandigarh.
Mr. Surinder Verma, Chairman, Citizens Awareness Group, said “You would not buy a colour TV before visiting a few dealers and taking advice from some friends. But a rumour might prompt you to buy stocks worth Rs. 2 lacs. So most of the losses occurred in the stock market are a result of hasty decisions, greed and fear.” He also exemplified how even educated and high income group investors fail to follow the safeguards while investing in the stock market.
Mr. Nishant Srivastava , Manage National Stock Exchange said that the presence of market regulator like SEBI and due to safe regulation adopted by various stock exchanges, the market has become far safer for small and medium investors. If investor enters in the market equipped with fundamental knowledge about the company they intend to invest in, they have fairly good chances of making a steady profit. He dwelt upon numerous aspect of the capital market like duties of investors, investor protection guidelines, trading and risk management etc.
