    Starting with Technical Analysis

    Starting with Technical Analysis

    I tried a lot of different software over the last few months. I finally settled on MS Excel to be the best option to plot my own charts. I also look at TradingView & ChartNexus.

    Starting with Technical Analysis

    Starting with Technical Analysis

    But that's not the logic behind the "Both averages must confirm rule", right? DJIA is the industries index & the other is the Transportation index. The logic behind the rule is that if industries are doing well, then the transportation companies which transport industrial goods will also be...

    Question about Reserves/Retained Earnings

    First of all, is there any difference between Reserves & Retained Earnings? While making the balance sheet how would you calculate the increase in reserves? What other stuff is involved here other than Net Profit after Tax less dividend?

    How safe are Shriram Transport FDs? I have one of 50,000 Rs which is maturing in a couple of years. Should I redeem it after paying penalty or does it look safe? Any idea about their Solvency, Liquidity, Asset Liability mismatch etc?
