Basic Requirements to Post Queries and Stocks Inquiries.
I am starting today “2012, January series”. Post your Januar comments here using comment box at the bottom or add comment on the top. This I am going to implement strictly in future. Use the Readers Corner to make any suggestions for any stock to be covered by us in future.
The readers may note another important protocol. Please post your comments in the following format: THIS IS A MUST REQUIREMENTS

HEADING – Write in Capital letters, Country, name of the stock enquired about or title of major issue as per reader’s choice. Do not extend beyond one line. write in this fashion: Do not use < or > tag which is used in HTML format.
Instead, just separate the items by “,” or comma.

Make it Bold using built in word processor (after selection of text, press “B” from the menu within the comment box)

  1. Write your query or specific question very clearly.
  2. If you are trapped in certain stocks, indicate Quantity, Cost and CMP (Current Market Price). Without these details, no answer will be posted. Unless I know the Cost/Purchase price of any stock, quantity and Current Market Price, it will be impossible for me to post meaningful reply.
  3. Do not seek any opinion on unknown stocks. This column is not meant for new recommendations.
  4. Do not use compliments for my predictions or assessments. Yes, you can criticize.
  5. Write each issue in one Para. Do not go beyond 4 paragraphs. Each para not to exceed 3 lines.
  6. Write to the point, do not be apologetic for anything nor bother about what I would feel about your post, just speak out your confused mind or confusion in simple narration style.
  7. Do not discuss personal problem in these columns as far as possible
  8. Use your normal word processor, to write your comments first, think over it, have it spell checked with proper capitalization, and then only post it. Avoid posting by cell phone as far as possible.
  9. Make a standard format or template using the present protocol, so that you do not forget anything like your name, city etc.
    Write Real Name, City, Country, Date of Post, All in one line. In order to avoid spam posts, please use your real email address which should bear resemblance to your real name. If the email differs materially from real name as posted as signature, the said post will be treated as “Spam” and will be removed immediately without any notice. If the reader has posted any comments but not appearing in this column, it may be due to reasons already mentioned above.
  10. Formatting your posts in above manner will make entire post pleasant, eye catching, and highlight the stocks or subject in such a way that other readers can scroll through easily to find what they want even from your message.
