People from various walks of life,through information technology advancement, empowered themselves to be well informed, stonnedin to the investment maitet What was hitherto the domain of upper middle and above became a common playground for even the middle and lower middle groups. They jumped into the market with little savings that they have in the hope of making big bucks without recognizing the underlying and hidden risk element in such investments. Overlooking the need to understand the fundamentals of the market themselves, they just relied on others’ opinions and suggestions. This led to a remarkable shift from rationality to irrationality in the investment behavior

The current study emphasizes the paradigm in the financial market scenario and investigates through behavioral finance approach whether, in the milieu, the Indian investors are really trapped and, then, attempts to throw some tips to get out of the trap.
