Which one good strategy to invest Rs. 5000 every month in Indian stock market for one-year time frame?

Strategy to invest small amounts Like Rs.5000 or Rs.10000 monthly in the stock market to earn interest  more than FD and other conservative funds.

Many investors want to invest small amounts in the stock market, in order to learn about the stock market, So that they can invest higher amounts in the future. For the new investor, a goal of beating FD and  PPF Returns Is an achievable goal for the first year. I don’t say that you cannot earn more, but as a new investor, your prime aim should be protecting your capital. if you could protect your capital for one year, believe me, your money will start growing thereon.

My above statement may be demotivating, and you would be thinking that it is better to invest in mutual funds. But the learning you will get by protecting your capital will help you create wealth throughout your life. 

Strategy for investment- choose a stock

Blue chip stocks
Blue Chip stocks in India

Being a new investors stick to blue chip companies like Hindustan Unilever, Wipro, TCS, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, Dabur, Britannia etc. Blue chip companies are low-risk companies. The return may not be very high, but you will never be at loss. Choose the companies you know very well. All these companies listed above play important role in our daily life. either we are using their products on their services on daily basis.

Strategy of investment- the cost of stock

You may say that Hindustan Unilever is almost trading at Rs. 2500, I will get only two shares of it. Instead I should invest in some stock with current market price of Rs. 100, so I will have at least 50 shares of it.

The number of shares does not matter, what matters is the percentage gain we get on selling them.

Strategy of investment- Time to purchase a stock

Always buy blue chip stocks when they are trading at their 52-week low or are near 200DMA( day moving average). 

Strategy of investment- How many stocks should be in the portfolio

Usually a Portfolio should have 20 stocks. This diversifies  portfolio and hence absorbs the volatility of the stock market. But if we are investing just for one-year time frame, investing in 3 to 4 stock is enough.

Strategy of investment- If none of the Blue chip stock is at its low

It is very rare that these Blue chip stocks observe dips. They usually trade at high points. Never miss an opportunity to grab these shares at low levels.  Since our target is to invest rupees 5000 monthly, then we should have a separate account in which we are saving our money, irrespective of buying or not buying a stock. In 1-year time frame, there would be a time when the stocks will come to their bottle levels, at that time, we can at one go invest 25% of our capital( if we choose to invest in 4 stocks) in one of the stock that is down.

Strategy of investment- When to Sell  stocks 

Sell the stocks when they are trading at their 52-week high or when they are at lifetime high.

If you use this strategy you will never face losses in the stock market.
