Why is it that surprises are always there in the market ? I did say that we should be reaching 10000 shortly, but NOT SO SHORTLY.

To tell you frankly, wven with my models, I am still at a PRINCIPAL loss of more than 50

Wait for some news expected this week, which will point the future course of action (or has it already come with this BEARS news, I wonder !!! )

You can make "more" money in BEAR market also and not necessarily always in a BULL market. Theres nothing called SUNK in the Market. Every loss has to be balanced by every gain. Its only the balance of power of money. Thats the way I look at it.

PS: I like BEAR markets more than the bull market.

The fall today was primarily because of the collapse of an investment banking firm Bear Stearns. They were finally saved by JP Morgan who payed $2 per stock, which was worth about $30 just a week back! This bank apparently had very high exposure to the US sub-prime market. This event has triggered worldwide stock market collapse especially in banking/financial stocks. According to experts, similar collapses may continue to happen in the next few months and this could result in further slide in stock markets.

The lure of the stockmarket is very hard to ignore, eh?

Would that mean the time has come for gem-picking - those rare gems with promise which can be tomorrow's bharti's,infosys' and so on?

And yes, is 2008, possibly the comeback year for autos?

Its a great time to pick up some quality stocks now, the bear market is a great place to pick up stocks which have suddenly become under valued because of the general downtrend. But this makes sense only for those who are willing to invest for the long term.

Right. No one knows the bottom of market...
So, best scenario is to do SIP in to hand picked stocks. This should reduce your purchase cost in case markets keeps going down. Ofcourse this is not for traders. Strickly for people who can park their money for next couple of years to come.

Need inputs on the following MFs for SIP

Birla SunLife Equity
[FONT=Verdana][SIZE=2][COLOR=#990000]DSPML Opportunities
HDFC Equities
[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Verdana][SIZE=2][COLOR=#990000]ICICI Prudential Infrastructure
[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]Reliance Growth

Are these funds ok for a SIP in todays scenario for say next 2-3 yrs?

Gents...the lows are expected to be arund 11000....this is the most realistic level they say as the market is still sold out.

However, you might see that the panic is still not prevailing in the market - reason being that people are getting themselves for the worst yet to be offerred.

Keep away from banking stocks in particular - ICICI

Market would be positive today. The USA and asian markets are up. The 0.75 rate cut by Fed Bank will have a positive effect on all the international indexes.
