Caveat Emtor: My ‘Investing’ and ‘Trading’ Tips are not for Faint of Hearts

Ladies and gentlemen,

I used to be a fairly savvy investor and also a savvy trader. I was successful and making money and I also lost a lot of money. I take a lot of risk and the level of my risk tolerance is very very high. Please don’t follow my occasional ‘tips’ on stocks unless you know what you are doing. If you follow me, you could be losing a lot of money.

Therefore, owing to an excellent suggestion by Hari garu, I decided not to post any more ‘tips’ here. I will only provide commentary. If at all I do post a tip, it will be available for ‘registered users only. This does not help you in any better way than it currently does. Going private with such posts containing tips could at least limit the potential damage to fewer people – hopefully toΒ  those who only know what they are doing.


  1. OK its my bad then. Lets all chillax! πŸ™‚
    Thanks a lot Ramana garu for your great contributions and insights.

    • cool. πŸ™‚ chillax is a new Portmanteau word I learnt today! thanks!

  2. Thanks for seeing my point Mohan garu and your bold move. Ramana garu emphasized on word “tips” when in fact I didn’t mean to use it as a derogatory term. All, please see the broader point here and stop shunning a newcomer onboard. Mohan garus rational, evidence and the passionate opinions are compelling enough w/o specific stock ideas for the market savvy to act on their own accord. All I suggested is not to give actionable ideas, a point Mohan garu saw.

    • ayya baboi, Hari garu! no one is shunning any new comers here!! 😐

      I just used ‘tips’ the same way Mohan used them. I was with your suggestion here and in that spirit I was telling Mohan garu he may have to use this as a link to disclaim any of his commentary as a forward looking statement about any thing on stock market. I have nothing against you writing anything, please. πŸ™‚ The comments here in this forum are not to dissuade anyone from writing but to express a opinion, I believe.

  3. your commentary may be construed as ‘tips’ too. πŸ™‚

    may be you should put a link to this as disclaimer to all your finance articles!
