It has been found that the majority of the respondents shows basic financial literacy, but they don’t believe that they have sufficient basic knowledge of investing in DSE. So the conflict between knowledge and their confidence leads them to wrong prediction of investment and the dependency on rumors on their investment decision.

Basic financial literacy not necessary prerequisite for a good investment decision in the capital market but help to make a preliminary decision of investment as well as to avoid a major loss.
