Hi, I have recently saved some money and wanted to invest it to make something out of it instead of just letting it dry in my bank account.
I wanted to ask if anyone has been facing a similar situation and if you have started investing by yourself (stock picking, ETF, crypto) or just done it through your bank and let them do the work. If it’s the first option, also I would appreciate any advice.

Hello Fishes,

I am new to the investing world. I have invested some 80k in Nifty fifty index funds. I wanted to increase my investment in other MFs and stocks.

Can you advise how to start it considering short term and long term financial goals.

Short term goals - like for 2-3 years

Long term goals - like for 5-6+ years or more depending upon the performance

I have seen multiple you tube videos but seems to get confused on how to start and which funds to pick.

Thank you!

Still struggling fundamentally with pricing for these alt coins. They have no real value as they don't reflect any claim for cash flows or ownership. So their price is purely a function of supply and demand. While I can logically support a price for bitcoin due to the limited supply, which effectively eliminates the ability to debase it as a store of value, its gold standard/first mover/brand in the crypto space, and its converatbilty to effectively all other crypto tokens/fiat, which supports its demand . Other alt coins have seemingly moved away from limiting the coin supply, which effectively removes the scarcity value off the table, and secondly opens the door to debasement, which will undermine these tokens use as store of value over time. I am interested in other intellectuall thoughts regarding the utility of these tokens and why their use in the future is warranted rather than circumvanted through the use of fiat/Bitcoin? (As side note, I understand the assumption that the ecosystem will become more valuable just not clear why would this warrant a coin price appreciation (specifically if the supply is not limited...you effectively need to assume the demand for a token will outpace the inflation in token supply to support a fundamental support for price increase)
