A lot of Indian investors have been observed to go into long-term stock investments using their own DMAT accounts or through Mutual Funds. Apart from their diverse backgrounds and businesses in different sectors, limited knowledge of trading and hedging makes them choose long-term investments in stock markets as the sole option.

After a short market survey, I found out that many people invest a significant amount of money in stock markets, but lack the expertise of using derivatives to earn consistent income and returns from them. Moreover, a fear of losing money, which is instilled due to their own past experience or the experiences of their acquaintances, coupled with a basic perception that stock markets are ‘satta’ or ‘luck’, makes them forego even the most lucrative strategies in these markets.
