Yes Bank investors are now facing a three-year lock-in period. What’s going on? When a new animal is brought to a zoo, it has to stay there for a certain period.

We’re talking about those who have invested in Yes Bank. The rescue plan for the reconstruction of ailing Yes Bank has been introduced with a twist.

Reasons Behind Stock Market Crash 2020

Market crashed wildly due to Coronavirus. What exactly happened? More than half of the global population doesn’t know how to swim though it is a life skill, according to a report. That’s a problem but there’s more to it. It has been scientifically proven that more than the deep waters, it’s the panic that kills people. Whenever a person gets stuck in water and has no other option but to swim, in most of the cases it so happens that the person starts panicking and assuming that he/she will die. Because of this, the person reduces his chance of survival and dies. This shows how important sentiment could be. Sentiment is one of the most prominent factors that led to the recent stock market crash. Not in the long term, but sentiment does affect the market in the short term.

But one thing most of us fail to include in this equation is our retirement.  With inflation set on full speed, life can be dismal without a proper plan as to how you are going to cope up after retirement.

We Indians simply love gossiping. Be it about any topic or with any person, we just love talking about things (even if we don’t know an iota of it). Although, none of us may agree with this but deep inside we know that it’s true. There’s a game called Chinese Whisper that you might have probably played as a child.
