So reisk averse people should try avoiding the security markets as it involves a great degree of a risk as unpredicted fundamentals may impare the value of their investments. So one should wisely invest as a Rupee saved is a Rupee earned and equity could be a diversified option for those who have hefty bank balances at their disposals and are prepared to bare losses.

Let us learn to face loss with a brave face. Loss teach us to be less greedy and more helpful to the less fortunate. It’s a part of life.

It’s the speculators who have lost.. for investors who have been senisible enough and been actual “investors”, equities should still somehow manage to generate far far positive and higher (highest!)returns.. but yes.. in the LONG run.. it’s just the test of patience…

Given the performance of MFs, I cannot even say that’s the correct route for equity exposure. Maybe, diversifying your investments across assets was, is and will remain the best approach.
