7 Must know websites for Indian stock market Investors: The Internet is full of resources. You can find tons of information out there for free. However, as this count increases, it’s literally impossible to remember all the sources that you visit even in a single day. Luckily, for the Indian stock investors, there are not many such great websites. Even if you only remember a few of the best ones, it will help you to keep yourself updated with all the market news, trends, announcements, happenings and all.

In this post, I am going to discuss seven such must know websites for Indian stock market investors.

Please note that there is one such website that every stock investor gets ‘used to’ when he/she starts learning the stock market. It is named INVESTOPEDIA. I won’t be discussing this website in this post as it is not a website totally based on the Indian share market. Today, I’ll only cover such seven best Indian sites. Further, do read the post till the end, as there is a bonus in the last section.

7 Must-Know Websites for Indian Stock Market Investors

Moneycontrol is certainly the most popular website among the Indian stock investor. You can find all sorts of information on this website like market news, trends, charts, livestock prices, commodities, currencies, mutual funds, personal finance, IPOs etc.

For equity investors, here you can find the fundamental data of any company along with technical indicators (including candlesticks charts). Moneycontrol website also provides a platform to track your investments and to create your own wish list.

Further, the discussion forum offered by this website is also among one of the unique features of this website. If you are unable to find the latest news regarding the drastic share movement of any company, just go to the forum of the stock, and read the discussions. However, please do not get influenced by the comments in the discussion section as a few may also be spam discussion posts.

In addition, money control also offers an app on all mobile platforms- Android, IOS, and windows. The app is amazing because of its simple user interface and great navigation features. If you do not have this app installed on your phone, I would highly recommend you to install it now.

2. Screener

Website: https://www.screener.in/

The screener is a great website to perform the fundamental analysis of a company like reading its financial statements, ratios, etc. Most of the features on Screener are absolutely free. You can find a number of important information about the companies on this website like financial ratios, charts, analysis, peers/competitors, quarterly results, annual results, profit & loss statements, balance sheet, cash flows, etc.

The best part is the customized financial reports which are created in such a manner that only useful information is shown. No clutters! The financial statements of a company are very long, however, the screener simplifies the financials in small useful chunks. Anyone can easily read the annual reports, balance sheet, etc on this website because of the user-friendly display of the data.

I regularly use this website to check the financials of a company and will also recommend using this website. It saves a lot of time for the readers to navigate through the financials.

3 Simple Tricks to Stock Research in India for Beginners.

3 simple tricks to stock research in India for beginners: Hi Investors. It’s been a while since I have written a blog post. This is because I’ve been working on a new project.

Since launching this blog ‘Trade Brains’ in January 2017, I have received a tremendous amount of emails, messages, and calls concerning stock market investment. Most of my readers are facing a similar problem- how to pick a stock to invest from a pile of over 5,500 stocks listed in the Indian stock market.

Though I have helped most of my readers, who have asked this question; however answering the same question, again and again, is little tiresome and mundane. Further, as this is a big topic, it took lots of hours to explain the same to every individual.

That’s why I created this video course on how to select stocks to invest in Indian stock market. Earlier I decided to include this post- ‘3 simple tricks to stock research in India’ in my course module. However, I felt that this content deserves to be publicly available on my blog as it can be quite helpful to the beginners to start stock research in India.

In this post, I will show how you can research good stocks in India to invest in using three simple implementable tricks. So, let’s get started.

3 Simple Tricks to Stock Research in India

1. Money control- Index composition.

If you want to investigate the stocks in a given industry/sector, why not to start with the market index composition of that sector.

An index composition of an industry consists of all the top companies that are included in that index.

For example, if you want to invest in a company in the metal industry, you should first start by investigating the stocks in the market index- S&P BSE Metal or Nifty Metal. Here S&P BSE Metal consists of companies like Hind Zinc, Coal India, Hindalco, Jindal Steel, JSW Steel, NALCO, SAIL, etc.

The index composition will give you a list of companies that you can investigate further in the industry.

Now, there’s a simple way to find out about the index composition of the different industries (Capital Goods, FMCG, Healthcare, Banks, Auto, Energy etc).

Either you can search for ‘money control index composition’ on google and click on the first link.

2. Mutual Funds Portfolio:

This is the easiest way for stock research in India. Just look at the portfolio of the top mutual funds and find out its holding stocks.

If the mutual fund is performing good, then the chances are that its top holding stocks will also be doing good.

Check the portfolio of few of the top ranked mutual funds in India and you can get an idea of the portfolio allocation for stock research.

Now, the next question is, where can I check the portfolio of top mutual funds?

The answer is- there are a number of financial websites where you can find the details about the mutual fund portfolio. For example- Value research online, Money Control, Economic times market etc.

However, in this post, I’m going to describe how you can find the portfolio of the mutual funds on money control website.

Here are the steps to find the portfolio of the mutual funds for stock research in India:

  • Go to money control website.
  • Click on ‘Mutual Funds’.
