Hi Manish and Nandish,
First of all I would like to congratulate Jagoinvestor team for the financial advises. I learned a lot from your expertise articles.
Further reference to your nice article about β€œWhat is Systematic Transfer Plan (STP) dated 28-03-2010 and your highlighting β€œSTP is still better than putting money in Bank and doing a SIP, because at least you money is earning some returns on debt part in STP”.
I am planning to invest 50K/Monthly in 6-8 MF through SIP for 10 year period.
Would like to know the capital money in bank FD@10% interest to generate 50K monthly for the SIP payment or maybe I am missing some important points. Pleases enlighten?
I am looking forward to your reply.
Once again thanks Manish and Nandish for coming up with Jagoinvestor and for your financial guidance.

Dear Manish, After carefull analysis, I have started a SIP in equity on a weekly basis for long term. Based on that monthly investment will be TCS Rs.4k, Tata Motors 4K, Tata Chemicals 3.2K, Titan 3.2K,Tata Steel 4K,Tata Tea 2K,Voltas 2K,Sesa Goa 5.8K,Dabur India 4.6K,Opto Circuits 3.9K,Union National Bank 4.2K,Uco Bank 5K,Yesbank 4.2K. This is a long term plan. Everybody has a faith in Tata Group instead of Ambani’s there fore fundamentally good Tata Group cos selected. Private nationalised banks also selected for long term plan because that will have more growth potensial. I would request your help and advise. Recently Icicibank started the option for SIP in equity. This is helping irrespective on the market fluctuations, i can be in the market.

Manish,

Great idea. One possible downside is agents offering biased advice or advertising themselves. Maybe its harmless but it doesn’t feel right.
There are a lot of lazy people out there who don’t want to research before investing. Some of the questions are childishly naive!
The forum if frequented by agents offers these guys an easy way out.
As Hemant suggested some moderation would be good.

Manish,

I agree with Jagbir that publishing e-mail addresses is not good idea as it will attract lot of spammers.

There should be a category display in side bar.

Are questions arrive after moderation?

Mubarak! πŸ™‚

I still remember the earlier jagoinvestor forum and this new format is quite cool. Few suggestions from my side:
1. After registration, it’s sending mail with password in clear text and no verification of mail id is there, so its like anyone can register using any id. when forum grow big, this might cause issues.
2. Any user can see ALL Register user’s mail ids. Again a popular forum will attract spammers and this may get misused. Instead provide option whether an user wants to display his id/phone in public list.
3. There would be single sign-on for both main site and forum. This will enable that I don’t require to enter my details every time for comments in main site and remain sign-in for forum as well.
4. Not all users follows comments in main site articles, so while user enter comments, provide an option that says something like this: “Submit this question/comment in forum” and provide link of that question in forum. This would provide user an option to actively track his query/comments and also improves forum visibility.

Manish,

I am also not aware about specific plugins to do these things. btw, you should consider hiring a good programmer on part-time to build such fixes and for maintenance πŸ™‚

having sign-on in site has benefits for longer run like sending newsletters with ads, notifications, building users database though it should be optional to register or not register.
