Of Bulls, Bears and Cupid

Back after a long break. Not that I was busy( As is often the case with B-schoolers :P or So i have heard) , but the simple phenomenon called laziness just took on gargantuan proportions.

Participated in the second stock trading competition after coming to IIML, and made some money as well :).Interesting thing though is that so much money is pumped into the markets these days by these competitions, over 1 crore if we consider just the most recent competition, it just seems that the market is not exactly the place to have a game. Though what such games do is that they highlight the positive aspect of stock markets, hardly anyone remebers that there is a bearish face to the markets as well. All of a sudden, junta's interest in careers such as equity research or trading and fancy words like put call parity shoots up !

Indeed, Money can do funny things to people, Yours truly included ;).In fact two researchers at Berkeley have found some interesting results about the correlation between money and happiness.

About the cupid in the title, well what do you get when you combine mush with just the right moment? My philophobia just got kicked to death.


P.S: @Vishy: I didn't need tips from Prashant !


  • Best of luck for both the things in the pic, but Money can't buy everything... but then again neither can no money. Money can't buy love; but it can rent a very close imitation.

  • Contrarian trading is truly different from all the marketing strategies since it is quite known that most of the entrepreneurs think alike. For instance, they will watch television and read the newspaper and once they have become aware of the facts about the stock market, which stakes what are the profitable products and services and what are not, they would be implementing the same thing.
