  • Investment Horizon : 

    When an investor buys shares, he/she normally does so with a future date in mind when they would like to cash in on their investment. The total length of time from the date of purchase of a share to the date when it is sold is the investment horizon, provided that it is planned. An investment horizon can be years, months, weeks or even days.

  • Capital Reserves :

  • Reaction : 

    This is a short-term reversal of the prevailing trend in the price movement of a share. Thus when in a falling market, the share registers a short term increment in price and in a rising market, the share registers a short term decline in price.

  • Financial Markets :

  • Dry Run Portfolio : 

    It is also known as paper trade. It is an imaginary portfolio of shares, constructed and monitored regularly by an investor over a period of time without actually buying the shares. The investor acquires experience on the ups and downs of the stock market at no financial cost or risk. With time, the investor garners enough confidence to actually invest in the stock market.
