Testimonial on www.amazon.in



“Amit takes us down the memory lane and re-caps the previous rallies and the turmoils. It is very interesting when he says that markets do fall because they do rise. The book is punched with interesting observations from similar books and mixes a good bunch of humour in between. This is a good read to set our expectations as an investor. Very good guide when we need help to learn the right behaviour in the market, as an investor. I enjoyed reading & learning.”

This is what Aneesh Kothare writes

Presented in a clear & interesting manner, which holds the attention of experienced as well as new comers to the financial markets.

Y2K – the problem that never was, or was it?

As we ring in the year 2016, it reminds me of a day around a decade and a half ago – the turn of the millennium.

Some of the computer programs running certain systems were about to get into some trouble due to the change in millennium. In the 1970s to 1990s, many computer programs were written in a computer language known as COBOL. In this program, the year field used only the last two digits of the year number. The year 1998 would be written as 98 and the year 1985 would be written as 85. As long as the first two digits did not change, i.e. remained “19”, all was fine. However, the change in the millennium meant that the first two digits of the year would change from “19” to “20”. It was feared that systems running with such programs would not recognize the new date and hence crash or stop working.

The fear was so high that many preferred to stay at home on the New Year night, fearing that a problem with the billing system of the hotels or the various systems of the airlines and airports may leave them stranded in an unfamiliar location.

Indian Tech sector benefitted immensely on account of this fear …
