Mid-caps and small caps recover as BSE clarifies on margin rules


The mid-cap and small-cap indices gave up 3% and 5% respectively in just two days in the early part of the week. The reason was a new rule inserted by BSE to check excess speculation in a market. Special surveillance measures by stock exchanges are nothing new and happen from time to time. The difference was that this time around, the wordings of the BSE circular left a lot of things to imagination and interpretation.

In the original BSE circular, things were open to interpretation. Firstly, there was no mention of the stock groups to which additional surveillance measures would apply. Secondly, the circular did not specify any market cap criteria, which made it logically applicable to all stocks. Lastly, BSE had prescribed weekly and monthly price limits apart from longer-term criteria for price limits. These open areas had a negative impact on sentiments.

BSE clarifies on open areas

Subsequent to the uncertainty in the market, BSE clarified on the 3 issues as under.

•    Firstly, the exchange has clarified that the add-on surveillance measures of limiting price bands would only apply to stocks in the X, XT, Z, ZP, ZY and Y group shares and only for stocks listed on the BSE. 

•    Secondly, BSE clarified that the additional surveillance was only applicable for securities with stock price above Rs.20 and having market cap less than Rs.1,000 crore.

•    Lastly, BSE clarified that instead of the weekly, month and quarterly price limits originally proposed, the new criteria will only consider 6-monthly, yearly, 2-year and 3-year criteria for price bands beyond daily limits.
BSE underscored that these measures were purely intended to reduce risk of volatility in smaller stocks and not to curb volumes in any way.

How to Use a Lumpsum Calculator for Mutual Funds

Lumpsum Calculator

Financial calculators are an important tool of financial planning. One of the most popular calculators in personal finance planning is the lumpsum calculator. You can understand the lumpsum calculator in terms of two applications.

•    Lumpsum calculator can be used to determine, how much a fixed corpus invested today would be worth after a certain number of years and assuming a certain CAGR returns over this period.

•    The other application of the lumpsum calculator is actually to look at the above situation in reverse. In practice, we need to know how much corpus we need today to meet our future goals. Lumpsum calculator can be use for goal planning also.

Lumpsum calculator and how much your money will grow

The table captures how much a fixed corpus of Rs.500,000 today will grow at the end of different time periods. The MF portfolio is expected to appreciate at 14% CAGR.

At the end of X Years

Corpus of

Will grow to

5 years



10 years



15 years



20 years



25 years




The lumpsum calculator clearly shows how a fixed corpus grows on its own over different periods of time. Clearly, the longer you hold, the better it is.

Lumpsum calculator for goal planning

A more practical way is to use a lumpsum calculator for goal planning. For example, if you target to reach a corpus of Rs.1 crore after 20 years in mutual funds at a CAGR of 14%, what would be the initial investment requirement. Here again, the lumpsum calculator can show you how much you need to start off with today.

For example, if you want to reach a target of Rs.1 crore, as in the above case, you must start off with a corpus of Rs.727,617 and invest it in mutual funds with CAGR potential of 14% annualized and hold on for 20 years. The lumpsum calculator provides financial planning analytics both ways.

Merit in Buying Digital Gold - How to buy Digital Gold

Digital Gold

Gold prices have moved lower on prospects of sharp GDP growth, which takes away the safe haven preference. The same is the case with silver, although demand patters are largely industrial.  In the last couple of years, Indian investors realized the merits of having gold in the portfolio as a defensive strategy. However, there is still confusion on how to buy Digital Gold.

The simplest way is to buy gold jewellery or gold coins. But storage is a big worry here and physical charges can also be high. The other 3 options are Sovereign gold bonds, Gold ETFs and Digital gold. Here is what investors need to know about the power of digital gold. Remember, digital gold is a safe and secure way of holding gold in digital fractions with seamless transaction processing. 

Digital gold brings some key advantages

Here is the digital gold edge for investors.

•    It is convenient to buy and sell digital gold. If you have a 5paisa  Demat Account, you just need to log-in to buy/sell digital gold. There is no size restriction, in that you can even buy 0.35 grams of gold, unlike the sovereign gold bonds and gold ETFs.

•    Digital gold is affordable. Firstly, it allows buying fractional gold of as low as 10 grams. Digital gold also works out cost-effective as there are no making charges involved. 

•    Unlike buying gold from jewelers, you don’t worry about gold purity. All the gold is certified by an official accredited agency as being 24-carat gold with 995 purity.

•    Digital gold is very liquid. You can log into your 5paisa account and buy or digital gold at any point of time. There are virtually no restrictions on buying and redemption.

•    Finally,  you may wonder as to where is the gold backing digital gold? The assurance is that digital gold is stored in segregated and guarded vaults. In short, digital gold can be converted to physical gold at any time subject to charges.
