Any novice equity investor or trader does these mistakes when they start investing or trading the stock markets. Even I have done these mistakes. Hell I lost 7 lakhs. Though 7 lakhs looks a small amount, percentage wise, it was 99% of my savings.

Read to know why taking tips and doing speculative trading can lead to huge losses in trading. It is better to stop taking advisory service and research.

I have written a lot of times why you should stop doing speculative trading and also never take tips to do trading.
