Minimise number of savings accounts

save your money and one day it'll return the favor

Image by • Eliane • via Flickr

CASA is the buzz word for many bank’s CEOs. From ICICI Bank to Karur Vysya Bank announced that they are going to concentrate more on CASA ( Current Account and Savings account) to minimise their cost of funds. They need to pay meagre 3.5% for the monthly lowest balance. So all the banks coming out with premium or privilege accounts which require higher minimum balance requirements. They lure you with worthless freebies and services. we need not waste our hard earned money in parking these low interest bearing saving account variants. At the most you require two saving accounts. Close all other accounts.  Use that fund to repay higher cost debts or park in FDs and liquid MFs.

These small things add big returns to your hard earned money.

Avoid markets till govt is formed: Jhunjhunwala

Volatile Games

Image via Wikipedia

“My advice is to stay away from the markets between 16 May and 30 May as there will be volatility in the markets post-elections,” Jhunjhunwala, 48, said in an interview. Our advice would be trade rather than invest. We expect volatility would increase many times. In these circumstances timing the market is very very difficult. It is advisable to trade in small quantities with strict stop loss and profit targets.

Suzlon is again in the news. The media reports said that the prototypes supplied by Suzlon to REpower have been rejected by the latter for its project in Shandong province in China and that it had obtained the blades from another manufacturer. Wait for full facts to emerge. If it goes down another 20%, then BUY BUY. We are very bullish on this stock and may expect mind boggling returns in next 5 years. Good long term bet. These uncertain times gives opportunity to enter into this stock.

Caution advised

Market is making new intra month highs. FII fund flow and gambling actions of few informed, well connected punters may be attributed to the reasons for market movement. Still caution advised. Trade with strict stop loss.

Accumulate mid-cap IT stocks like Polaris, 3i Infotech for long term as they are having the potential to double . Avoid banking stocks even though their valuations are tempting.
