3.  Bangalore Investors Club Sessions 

To provide a platform to meet, discuss and learn, we meet weekly at our Office. You don't need a reason to come for these sessions, you can come for your first one free of charge (unless it's a "special" event, in which case it will be notified in the email sent out). There are NO obligations and you can come whenever you like. It is recommended however, to attend the sessions regularly ... there is continuity in the learning and you will feel at home.

IMP: Information about all BIC Sessions / Events is sent out in advance through the BIC Yahoo Groups and BIC's SMS Alerts Service (see above for details).

Let's Find Trades Sessions.

The Let's Find Trades Sessions are dedicated to study of Security Charts of various stocks, global indices and other popular securities. The studies are primarily technical analysis based and supported by fundamental analysis. These sessions are excellent practical educational sessions on market analysis.

To make these sessions truly valuable, we take specific Entry, Target and Stop Loss levels for each security studied. This allows those attending the sessions to take actual positions in the markets and therefore look forward to actual PROFIT from the sessions.

These are practical, "to-generate-profitable trades / investments" oriented sessions. Held by prior announcement through our BIC Yahoo Email Service and SMS Alerts Service. Usually time is from 7.30 to 10.30 pm. There is a fee of Rs. 250/- for these sessions.

 

Learn @ BIC & Pink Papers

Please Note: These sessions are temporarily not being conducted. We look forward to starting them soon again and will put up a post once we commence these sessions again.

Learn @ BIC 

Half of the session is devoted to learning & discussing a useful and use-able concept in investing / trading / personal finance / economics / entrepreneurship / anything of value to an individual in pursuit of wealth generation & preservation. 

So far, we have had sessions on Income Tax, Gold, Real Estate, Stock Markets, Commodities, Crude Oil, Dow Theory, Candlesticks and lots more. Topics are often divided into smaller stand alone modules and discussed over several sessions. This part is more in the nature of a "class".

Pink Papers

During the other half of the session, we look at the week that has gone by: News in the pink (business) papers / magazines, economic, financial, political, business & social issues / events and discuss how they may impact investing and the future. The goal is to get a broader, deeper, integrated and holistic understanding of how the world of money / finance / wealth works. This part is more in the nature of a discussion / debate.

These sessions used on a morning, from 7AM to 10AM, usually a weekend. We also have breakfast together ... it's an "open house", informal occasion to learn and have fun.

 

4.  Bangalore Investors Club Special Events                                

Our fledgling Agriculture initiative. Click here for more details.

These are visits that we arrange to various places or talks and discussion with various people who have been very successful in creating, managing and preserving wealth. This could be out of sheer curiosity or for a particular reason. Either way, they are always fun and lots of opportunity to learn, get to know each other and discover life. 

Our Special Events so far:

1. Namdhari Seeds on Mysore Road (an eye opening experience on what organised agriculture can do).
2. Fireflies on Kanakapura Road (a great place for a relaxed day and appreciate a very different approach to life, simple living, nutritious food, natural environment, intellectual creativity and lots more).
