You Must Come for my Two full days Equity Training Workshop at the Bombay Stock Exchange on Friday,November 26 and Saturday November 27,2010…should be a good investment and fun too!

Hey Guys…..want my insights on our Sensex and Stocks and Risks and Returns in Indian Equity…we can deliberate and debate on these… can actually own me for a full two days for just under Rs 10000,inclusive of taxes !…….. as later this month I’m holding an exclusive and intensive and fun Two Full Days Workshop on

‘Equity Portfolio Structuring and Stock Analysis…Integrating Intellect with Instinct’

It’s on Friday and Saturday this month on November 26 and November 27 at the Bombay Stock Exchange Training Institute

…..should be a good investment !….so come for it….even if you have to travel to Mumbai for it !……just call BSE Coordinator ,Vispi Bhatena at the BSE Training on +91-22-61363155 or +91-22-22728303 to register and confirm a seat right away

….have already glimpsed at some of the confirmations….one Mutual Fund Group is sending quite a few…interesting

….it may be of some interest to you to know the profile of participants at my past workshops……I’ve had extremes in age….aggressive and enthusiastic 15 year olds to 80 year olds attending….youngsters are in a hurry….their fathers put up initial funds and look to gains from Equity to fund their overseas education …… gender numbers compete with each other…the females are smarter !….heads of research come for ideas and intellectual think trends…though I must confess most come for stock ideas !…that’s the most attentive and even the most boisterous time too !…largely covered during Valuation and Equity Portfolio Construction sessions but inevitable peppered right through both days…some want to learn to earn to burn !…many already hold equity worth lakhs and crores and are keen to protect and grow wealth…..I simply love interacting with all….the more you interact with me the more you shall get out of me !….I find that quite often I’m inspired by the participants…one was even a direct disciple of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar from the ‘Art of Living’….very adventurous too !….his focus was how and when to leverage through Derivatives !

….I shall show you how much risk you can assume and how to manage it so you can with some degree of conviction and confidence capture some opportunities for great potential multibaggers too which otherwise most experts will tell you to avoid as the risk is too high !

….also why you don’t need to indulge in Insider trading to grow your Equity Wealth…sensitive and highly arguable issue

…we shall also exercise our brains for logical and rational thinking…i shall give you situations to think out ……you will be surprised at the outcome….. why we yet behave irrationally ! at times

…..I have simply used logic to convert even cynics to Equity…the proof of the pudding,of course lying in the eating !  

….my satisfaction would be to see all of you feeling relaxed,refreshed and rejuvenated after my sessions… just like you do when you come out of a good Health Spa …..inspired to go out there in Equities with conviction and confidence and  tranform Academics to Action and Theory to Application
