Deflator Table

Stock Price RangeDeflator (% reduction from gain/loss rupee value)

1000-10,00010%
10,000-20,00015%
20,000-30,00025%
30,000-40,00035%

80,000-90,00075%
90,000+80%

The reason behind reduction of points from the gain/loss moves of your stock selection is as follows:

  • There is no virtual money involved in the contest
  • Mitigate the impact of big move in high priced stocks - since that makes any reasonable or even swing moves in the other lower priced shares, impossible to match up with the high priced stock move.
  • In reality, we see few investors having the gumption to pick high priced stocks, so this mimics the real-life scenarios
  • BUT, in no way, this is aimed at dissuading or discouraging any investor from participating/trading in high priced stocks in their real world investing decisions.
  • This rule is a step to ensure more even playing field for the participants.
