My question to you is that should I quit this training or question them regarding this issue. Sumit-Please question the issues of what I said above.

Let them show the SEBI registration. Otherwise, you inform them that you first write a letter to SEBI about their company. If SEBI have no issues, then you will go ahead. That too check with SEBI portal.

I am a Mechanical Engineer with over 20 yrs of exp. I want to change my career and planning to persue a career in finance by doing CFP.

What if the traders win contest prize money in forex broker and trade with those money? Are such withdrawals accepted in India because there is no deposit from the traders end. Also one can consider to be signal providers through demo accounts and if they are successfully making money through their signal providing service.

This has no rules to violate. Ashvini-It is still illegal whether the money deposited from trader end or not. Virtual trading is different and there can be any type of underlying asset to trade and there is no such restriction. Thank you for the fast response.

So, providing signal service through demo accounts should serve as analyst job. There are many account managers who manage foreign clients fund and any remittance to India is considered as income which is legal.

They claimed to have a subsidiary company in india which manages their financials which is as per rbi and sebi norms. Intially I thought this is legal I am a bit dumb!! Later on I understood that what they were doing is actually hawala transactions.

They have an account in india and we deposit money in inr which is converted into dollars and the process is same when we have to make a withdrawal. The problem is I opened an account with svsfx.

Do you have any suggestion or insight about about Kumar sayings on March 1, at Ram-1 Why I have to go to foreign for the sake of Forex Trading? But negating the risks involved. This is how the commmon man be in trap and loose money. Trading is too risky. Also, is it necessary to follow other countries blindly? I am a forex trader and I love trading in forex.

I want to tell you.. Best volatility and best volumes. If you do not know technical analysis then trading is gambling for anyone in any market. If you know how to trade then you can make money anywhere but if you want make lot of money then only place is forex.

You think you re an expert in english? Try to answer the questions rather than asking silly questions. Let the readers of the post decide. I have answers for all your questions 1 Forex markets are extremely volatile and have a lot of money making oppurtunites. This is what you know as an expert? You work for hours in office. You risk obesity and diabetes sitting in the same place. Of course,FOrex trading is where money exchanges hands and there is a good chance you can make money from a small investment.

The market cap of Indian equities is simply too small to eradicate such manipulations. Sarath-Volatility is Good or bad? It is not the promoter.

You Know why Rasoya protiens trading at 20 fell to 0. You know why Allied Digital Services trading at fell to 20? You Know why India Bulls Wholesale services fell from 30 to 10? You know why gitanjali jems fell from to 40? You know why C Mahendra Exports fell form to 6? You know why Subex fell from to 6? Promoters are manipulators in all these cases.

Promoters create bullish sentiment for poor retailers to buy. When everybodys in, the promoters dump the stocks creating panic among retailers again. Thats ho they steal the money. Retail traders who dont have enough money to manipulate anything are the losers finally. This is how stock market works. Helena, Sudan, Syria ,Ukraine Zimbabwe. Please try to accept. You as a financial expert should know about these more than me about all these manipulations. Nobody Cares about rupee at all.

Thats the pitiful situation of our country , equities and ever deteriorating rupee.. Sarath-It the lack of knowledge that makes you to invest in such companies which you named.

Also, do you feel there is no manipulation in forex trading?? Those companies were really good before promoters started robbing investors money.

Its not the lack of knowledge. Well,Can you name a few companies with your great knowledge that will give me returns 5 years from now? I am ready to invest. Moreover if I make losses from the names you suggest,will you compensate me for the losses incurred because of your advice. You said I lack Knowledge. Well ,no one can suggest anything. Because RISK is everywhere. Lol,if you invest ,it doesnt matter how the stock moves.

He will lose a lot even if stock moves by a small fraction. Whats the guarantee that stock will always move up after you invest? And coming to your final question. I already told you its not easy to manipulate forex as it is to manipulate a stock.

Simply because huge amount flows in and out. Since it involves huge amount of risk to manipulate forex,even banks are not brave enough to take the risk of manipulating forex,as they appoint qualified traders to trade on their behalf who trade with strict rules.

Not like as you said,invest and forget. The current range should matter to you even if you invest. After a few years your clients will be after you. Sarath-Equity investment meant for 5 years? But it subdue when we invest for long term.

When you invest in cheap stocks or the stocks which recommended by the so-called experts who in turn brokers then there is high possibility that they turn to negative. Look at people who look for value investment. Invest and Forget is not meant for any investment. Sarath i like very much your opinions and comments , i agree your comments regarding this issue..

I am also a trader earning a good amount. Not only me but there are so many traders earning through forex and withdrawing in lacs per month in INDIA, still no problem. Then tell if i do like this and come back to india , and use that money here is it still illegal.

If it is done in a safe way. Many readers of yr blog they say by opening nri account. And etc… Tell me ways i am confused. Pls reply on my email. I am also a forex trader, a signal provider and pool account manager in forex business from last 4 years and able to develop a very big and good forex earning business model where a comman man easily can earn from 10,, INR sitting at home and can improve the life of a comman man or weaker section.

After reading all the points above i would like to mention few points here please and need support —. Forex trading from India is illegal and there is no doubt about it but we want to do it legally from India and its legal way is you can be NRI and use the own account into that particular country where forex trading is legally allowed and can remit your profits into NRE account and can show the concern authority about your earnings and pay taxex accordingly and it is legal because you have used your stored capital for the forex trading there not by remitting funds from India.

You can form a company out side India where forex trading is legally allowed as a subsidiary of your Indian company Indian company will be parent company but this for those who have already own any company in India and remit funds outside to subsidiary company and subsidiary will do forex trading and will revert you the benefits as a dividend and it is legal. Its my view that most of the Indian Political Parties and Leaders except few leaders but may be they do not know about forex trading potential so could not be focused on this talk about the welfare of the people but never think seriously to do for them because if comman man will be financially strong then never will accept their dirty politics so they think that comman man should be always poor and struggler with there problems.

If this business have not good potential and liking with mass then why millions of millions of people attracting towards it. Very small small countries like Mauritius. I think it is the totally matter of intentions and nothing else. Is there not involved risk for the comman man there? I am not a follower of any party but i know the power of aam aadmi comman man its result we have seen in Delhi election so my view is that we should all forex trading lovers should organise and make a common sign letter and give to Shri Narendra Modi sir who is our hourable Prime Minister as he thinks always about comman man and think for the bottom people and when we all shall be together present our interest and concern then we hope that sure he will re think and talk to the concern authorities to do it legally from India.
