I was sad to read Manish Chauhan post the experience of a retail investor defrauded by his insurance agent because this is fairly typical behavior and there are a lot of examples like this in the Indian markets. In general it is a good idea to post a comment on any one of the several good financial blogs inquiring about a financial product before you buy it, and chances are you would be saved a lot of hardship later on.
Monika Halan writes about how the average retail investor can’t buy financial products without advice. I would just add that the advice doesn’t need to be paid advice, you can take advantage of forums and comments on any blog before jumping into a decision.

your weekend links are great…if you can write this kind of update on stock market then i think it will be great… i am also planning for that…
Not sure what exactly you mean by that – do you mean a few links related to the stock market every week? Because I don’t think enough is written on a weekly basis that will be fun to read for people every week.
