    Thanks for your reply,

    in second point, i am looking for 2 spread sheets

    1. A spreadsheet, in which i can keep a track of the stocks i bought.
    2. A spreadsheet in which i can watch the stocks which i like to buy. In this case, i am totally not aware what are the parameters i should look for.

    Trust i am clear in what i am looking at. your reply will be highly appreciated.

      I would try to simplify – you are actually looking for a portfolio tracking tool in 1st one while a good watch-list in 2nd one! Why to complicate 😉

      The parameters you are looking for, as I said are mostly available on a paid subscription basis in reports, etc. Or they are also available on bseindia/ nseindia and stock-market related websites like moneycontrol. But on these websites, one needs to know a lot about markets to take something meaningful away.

      To repeat, we are working on something which is in limited access mode right now & can share the access with you. email me your details (id mentioned above) & I shall try to help you as much as possible!

    Not able to understand what you mean by 2nd question.

    On 3rd – there is no definite criteria for this. however its safe to assume companies having market cap larger than market cap of smallest companies in Nifty as large-cap stock. Similarly for mid-cap, you can consider CNX Midcap instead of Nifty above.

    For the 1st one – its a data which is available only through your own research or buying a paid one. However, there is something which we are working on at my company, so drop in an email to santosh DOT navlani AT gmail DOT com. I may be able to help you (for free :))

    Hope this helps!
