Stock Market is soaring? Should You invest now?



  • Well sip is not for people looking for opportunities.. opportunities seeking is more like trading whereas sip is more of a couch potato passive and once in a year review kind of an approach

    Comparing one approach with another is really not possible.



  • @saketnarayane You may be right to some extent. But, comparing these two different methods is actually not possible. SIP is a regular way to invest and suits different investors as per their financial goals. While lumpsum might be good for certain other category of investors based on their surplus funds and long term financial goals. One method may have advantages over the other. But, there are so many factors affecting the overall performance in the markets. So, we can't specifically define which one is the best 🙂



  • To initiate trading in the markets, you first need to make investment goals at your own risk within your timeline in mind. Then you can also research the latest financial condition as well as the history of different companies by going through their income statements or balance sheets. After complete information on online commodity trading market, you can start trading.



  • I wish i could give you the right answer. But in stock market, there is no exact right or wrong time. Anything can happen in the market. I will tell you this that you should invest in the market with the amount you could afford to lose. Otherwise you will face a lot of problems in the future.



  • @gillbroking So true! Having clear investment goals is the essence of trading. Whether we wish to follow regular trading or want to stay invested for longer duration, this all needs to be analysed. Doing thorough analysis and staying financially alert generally helps while investing our money.
    We are visualising stock markets reaching new highs, it's quite lucrative for potential investors. But, there's no need to get carried in emotions. One has to act cautiously and wisely.



  • Hello guys! I think stock market is a perfect market for your investments at any time as it always favors the potential investors who can manage to stay for a longer period of time. It depends on you to utilize your knowledge properly. Thank you so much



  • @saketnarayane In long term your return will not make much of difference. If you take the CAGR of Nifty 500 or Sensex , it will not make much difference.



  • @kvijay12345 CAGR for much longer term you mean, like 15-20 years. In 8-10 years you still might have fluctuation and time could matter.



  • @SaketNarayane , as @Wealthladder said there is no good or bad time to enter markets , If you would have invested this year in small cap even via SIP it would have been a complete loss. The fund houses that gave 80% return last year are in 40% loss this year. again it depends on what is your portfolio.
    For Midcap-small cap - 10 + years
    For Debt - 5 years

    This is my personal opinion.



  • @kvijay12345 Right to point out " There's no good or bad time to enter markets". It's the correct strategy that needs to be followed to attain the desired returns. One shouldn't panic on a sudden market fluctuation and act wisely. Even if the market is down, one needs to show patience and act cautiously to reduce the losses, if any.
