Because only market in the world growing at 7 per cent is India.With commodities are down our currency reserves are at 14 months. Indian being depended on crude and commodities any correction it will add to its strength.
Is it means there will no pain in Indian market?
It is not so.Assume there is a fire at your neighbourhood, you will have pain till the fire doused.But the impact on you will not be the same as your neighbour if you have taken few preventive steps once you know there is a fire.
What it means to investors?
Those followed the asset allocation diligently and invested for goals based on risk appetite( read as preventive steps),it is another day for you to understand that anything goes up without fundamental it will see the correction.
Since you have done your basic with the support of, look at your portfolio today,note down your portfolio return and compare after the dust settled.
So, my advise is that stay invested on tough time it will help you to achieve good return.
