Tejas made huge profit
There are many Z generation people who are strong investors in the stock market. One of them is Tejas, a 23-year-old automobile engineer from Pune. When the stock market fell by about 30 percent in March 2020 due to Corona, he saw an opportunity to buy shares at a cheap price. Let us tell you that the people of Z generation are those who were born between 1997 and 2012. During the Corona period, the online availability of stock brokers, easy fund transfer facility and the extra time given to the people due to the lockdown increased the share of people in the stock market significantly.
Z generation youth entered the market during the Corona period
During the Corona period, the youth of the Z generation entered the stock market for the first time and saw the Sensex jump one after the other. By October, the Sensex had gained about 130 per cent. In these days, the share price of Tejas’s portfolio also jumped by about 50 percent. However, due to many reasons, the stock market once again broke down. This time the reasons for the decline ranged from inflation to war.
1 lakh gain… then 10 thousand loss
In December 2021, the Sensex was close to 56 thousand, down about 10 percent from its highest level. There was a recovery in January 2022 and the Sensex touched the level of 60 thousand. The stock market once again started falling due to the war between Russia and Ukraine. Tejas says that on an investment of Rs 2.5 lakh, he had made a notional profit of Rs 1 lakh till October 2021. Right now he is incurring a loss of about Rs 10,000 on an investment of Rs 3.5 lakh.
And Tejas gave up tracking the market
In the month of March, the Sensex fell about 15 percent from its highest level to reach the level of 53 thousand. In April, the Sensex once again reached the level of 60 thousand. Once again the market has crashed in May and has come down to the level of 53 thousand. Right now the Sensex has reached the level of 51,360 points. In this way, the Sensex has fallen about 11 thousand points, or about 17 percent, from its October high. Tejas says that till February, he was investing in the stock market, but after that there were signs of the stock market not moving forward and he stopped tracking the stock market.
Rucha also invested money in shares, but…
This is the first time that the Z generation who entered the stock market for the first time saw the effect of inflation on the stock market and also saw how the value of their stocks fell sharply. Gurugram-based data analyst Rucha started investing in 2021, when the Sensex recovered from its lows. Like Tejas, he has now stopped tracking the stock market as he is not seeing his portfolio in the red.
No Rucha… Na Tejas… Nobody made the mistake of selling shares in the fall
Even though these Z-Generation youths are losing their interest in the stock market, they have not made the mistake of selling their holdings in a downtrend. Tejas says that when he started investing, he had a 10-year period in mind. He believes that even though he is at a loss right now, it will all be recovered in the long term. Like Tejas, Rucha too has not sold its shares. Tejas says that when the market fell initially, he thought it was temporary and he invested a lot of money in the market. However, now that the market has fallen further, they have no money left to buy more shares. After Corona, the increasing expenses of the youth have also reduced investment in the stock market.

Youth are playing practical game, not emotional
Market experts agree that most retail investors have not sold their shares this year. This time only in emotion, better retail investors are not selling their shares. Most of the investors of Z-Generation are looking for a long-term profit making target. However, not everyone is like Tejas and Rucha. Tejas explains that some of his friends have sold their shares and exited the market. Another mistake he made was to buy penny stocks, which sank his money. However, Tejas has not sold anything and is playing the real game of holding.
