Decoding the charts
The EduFund Research Team has performed the study to determine the reason for the recent fall in the markets and here’s what they came up with.
Reasons for the fall
- Tightening of monetary policy by the US Fed department
- Lower than expected results of major corporates
- Tension on the borders of Ukraine-Russia
How the fall affects you
According to Nifty50’s data of the past 2 years, we can see that the market has fallen by 6.56% in 2020 and 7.83% in 2021, just before the budget. And after these falls, the market has rebounded 5.32% & 13.49% in 2019 & 2020 – in a short time frame from the correction.
This means that there is actually no need to be worried about the fall in the market. After the budget, we could see a positive movement in the market.
We believe such correction/volatility in the market is a great time for long-term investors.
Make the most of the recent market fluctuations
These short-term market fluctuations and the volatility actually provide a good entry point in an otherwise rising market.
Also, if you are an investor investing through the SIP route, you should not panic about these volatile situations. Instead, let the rupee cost averaging work in your favour by topping up a lump sum during this time. India is currently trading at a PE of 24.84 (Median – 20.45).
