NSE's CEO, Ashish Chauhan, expressed concerns about retail investors' engagement in derivative and day trading at the India Today Conclave Mumbai 2023 on Thursday. Chauhan categorized these activities as speculative due to a prevalent misunderstanding among retail investors.

Chauhan emphasized the importance of comprehensive research for long-term investments spanning 3-5 years. In light of this, he proposed extended trading hours for equity derivatives to accommodate unexpected news that could potentially influence market trends.

The CEO acknowledged the increased global market volatility caused by rapid technological changes. As a solution, he suggested mutual funds as a viable investment option for individuals constrained by time. He also encouraged investors to stay invested during market fluctuations to reap the benefits of India's growth narrative.

These remarks come amidst a backdrop of increased interest in derivative trading among retail investors in India. Chauhan's emphasis on long-term investments and his proposal for extended trading hours aim to ensure that retail investors are better equipped to navigate the complexities of the market while minimizing risk. His suggestions are particularly relevant given the current global market volatility brought about by fast-paced technological changes.
