In this post, I will show you the simplest answer on how to invest your first 1000 rupees in the stock market. This is an easy way. Also, for the method described here, you don’t need to be an expert or any help from financial advisors to invest your first Rs 1,000 in the stock market.
Quick note: I will not discuss how to open a brokerage account here. I am assuming that you have already opened your debit and merchant accounts. If you haven’t already, read this post to find out where to open your debit and trading account.
A little advice before you start
Talking to my blog readers and subscribers who are just getting started in the stock market, I learned that most aspiring investors like to wait until they raise thousands of rupees to invest. However, this is a mistake. You can start investing with as little as Rs 1000.
Plus, you can increase your investment in the future as your savings grow. By following this strategy, you can effectively use your time studying the stock market to prepare yourself for investing large sums in the future.
Second, you don’t need to be an expert to invest your first Rs 1,000 in the market. You can invest this money while studying or even if you just started a few weeks ago.
Thirdly, the main thing here is to learn, not to win. Rs 1,000 is not a lot of money that will lead to bankruptcy if you lose that amount. However, Rs 1,000 is more than enough to introduce you to the exciting world of the stock market and improve your financial skills.
Also, don’t worry about technicalities like how to initially buy / sell from your trading account. When you are ready to invest, you can find out about all this in 15-20 minutes using various online resources. Nowadays, buying stocks is even easier than booking train tickets online from IRCTC. All you need is a phone / laptop, internet connection, brokerage account and some money in a savings account.
Now that I understand the basics, let’s find out how to invest your first 1000 dollars in the stock market. Next, please read this post to the end, as there is a bonus in the last part of this article.
How to get your first 1000 shares in the stock market?
- Invest in only one share.
1000 rupees is not a big amount. If you buy a stock worth Rs 300, you can only buy three units (quantities) of that stock. Moreover, those stocks that are trading at a market price above 1000 dollars are already excluded. Therefore, if you are planning to invest your first 1000 dollars in the stock market, you should expand your selection criteria to a share price of Rs 1 to 1000 dollars. Otherwise, you may have to give up many good stocks that have a high market price (say 800-900) if you plan to buy multiple stocks.
Moreover, with this amount of investment, you do not need to spend time diversifying your portfolio. Selecting multiple stocks takes time and isn’t worth it.
. Invest in what you already know
The easiest approach to stock selection for beginners is to invest in what you know. There are a number of companies you may have heard of since childhood and may already know a lot about. For example – Maruti Suzuki, HDFC Bank, ITC, Yes Bank, HPCL, Bata, Coal , Hindustan Unilever, etc.
There are thousands of companies whose products/services you have already used and you can be more than happy with. Discover those companies and investigate them. Visit the company website, check its portfolio (product / services), know who the company boss is, its future products / plans, etc.
Don’t spend weeks researching your first stock
Although I am convinced that you will find a good company using step 2, however, if you are not able to find any company of which you have good knowledge then invest in blue-chip stocks.
Blue chips are the stocks of those reputable companies that have been in the market for a very long time, are financially strong, and have a good history of growth and steady returns in recent years.
For example – HDFC bank (leader in the banking sector), Larsen and turbo (leader in the construction sector), TCS (leader in the software company), etc. Some other examples of blue-chip stocks are Reliance Industries, Sun Pharma, etc. Here is the list of some of the best blue-chip stocks in the stock market:
The idea here is not to ‘waste’ too much time looking for stocks. This is your first investment and the amount of investment is also small. It is not worth your time to spend weeks looking for a stock just to invest 1000 Rs.
One thing I can guarantee is that your experience after purchasing your first stock will be amazing! Trust me, you will be more involved in the market if you invest a little money in it, no matter how small. By investing your first 1000 Rs in the market, you will learn ‘quickly’ and you will learn ‘efficiently’.
Moreover, as discussed in the post, investing is not rocket science, rather it is quite simple to invest your first 1000 Rs in the stock market if you follow the steps described above.
