Things to be learned from Dr. Vijay Kedia

1. Invest for long term 

Dr. Kedia truly believes in long term investments. According to him, companies always take time to develop and grow. And as the saying goes, "Rome was not built in a day". Investing for a long-term is effective because the stock market is always volatile in nature. The swings in the price could cause huge losses if not evaluated appropriately. 

2. Look for good Management

Dr. Vijay Kedia thinks that a person should invest in companies with nice and transparent Management. Several facets make up a company, and those are crucial to be deemed before investing in the company. According to him, one should always look for the qualitative factors of the company. 

3. Don't invest to earn bread

Vijay Kedia always advises that you should never depend on the stock market for your livelihood. According to him, it is important for a person to have an alternative source of income. He says you can resist market changes and be an active trader. Many investors have invested large sums of money in hopes to gain more money without even having a formal business or a job. This has led to a huge loss and hence, accumulated debts for such individuals. 

4. Have a balanced approach 

Dr. Vijay  Kedia says it is crucial to have an equalized approach. It is not good to be excessively optimistic during an upward trend and extremely pessimistic in a downtrend of the stock market. He says investing does not have to be aggravating work. It can be simple and comfortable if you have a confident approach. 


There may be many big investors in the trading industry, but whenever we think of an investor who is also an inspirational mentor, its people like Dr. Vijay Kedia that usually strikes the mind. He has been one step ahead of most investors due to his never-failing investing tips and tricks. 

Though the market is always autonomous and uncertain, following the tips of successful investing minds like Dr. Kedia can help you to avoid or in the worst case, endure any tragic market shocks. 

So, if you are someone who is in search of guidance before stepping into the pool of trading, you know whom to follow. 

Happy ( and smart) investing!
