Why Indian Stock Market is Falling Today

So the Indian stock market has fallen.

The exact market levels may vary but the result is always the same. Lost opportunities for profits, disappointment, and of course financial losses.

Whenever the stock market crashes, everyone hears about it...and everyone talks about it.

In fact, everyone loves to talk about it. Even those with no money invested in the market will have an opinion about the crash.

The media dutifully does its part. Headlines speak of Rs 'X' lakh crore in wealth, wiped out in a day.

Every fall in the stock market also teaches old lessons to many investors and traders. The reasons why the stock market falls is different every time. The stocks that fall the most are also different. But the reasons why people lose money is always the same.

The reasons for the losses are usually found in their enthusiasm during the preceding up move. The market fall exposes their over investment during the up phase.

People lose money in a market fall not due to the fall itself but rather due to making bad investments and overextending their trading accounts when the market was going up.

And when the market tide turns downwards, as Warren Buffett said, they get caught naked.

When times are good, investors and traders believe their stock picking skills are responsible for their profits as opposed to a rising market tide lifting all boats.

Thus, they become overconfident and make investments in fundamentally poor stocks. They also tend to over allocate funds to these stocks. Some even borrow on margin. This exposes them to the dangers of a market decline. It's only a matter of time before they get hurt.

Thus, we can see that the reasons why people lose money during stock market declines are predictable and can be avoided.

Here's a list of articles and videos explaining why the Indian share market may be falling. This is a great starting point for anyone who is looking to stay updated with the current developments of Indian share market.
