How to Invest When the Stock Market is Sinking?

Let me create some fear if you aren’t fearful as yet.

India’s economy is going downhill, fueled by a rising deficits, and falling rupee, governance, and hopes.

Foreigners are taking note, and pulling money from their Indian investments.

Led by this, the stock market is tumbling. The Sensex is down almost 22% or 4,600 points from its last peak in November 2010 (18 months).

Some so called ‘safe stocks’ are down even more – like BHEL is down 59%, L&T is down 46%, Tata Steel is down 36%, and Infosys is down 23% (since Nov. 2010).

How can such a scenario not trouble even the most sensible of long term investors?

  • Is it sane to invest during such bad times?
  • Should you sit on the sidelines?
  • If not, how should you invest in these volatile times?

I tried to provide answers to all these questions in Safal Niveshak’s Friday Night Facebook Jam…

…which finished just an hour back.
