IDBI Capital explains, "The market is highly volatile. The elections are coming in next 3-4 months. On the other hand, the geopolitical concerns, volatile crude oil prices and slowing global growth are factors of worry." After sowing the seeds of negativity, IDBI Capital offers relief by saying, "The upcoming Budget announcement will be immediate major trigger for the market."
However, in IDBI's view negativity is definitely in the air as it said, " It will be pre-election Budget which can be populist. If it turns populist then further FII/ FPI outflows can be possible. There is more probability of a correction over the medium term. However, it is not possible to time the market and to invest exactly at the lowest point."
What investors should do
Therefore, IDBI recommends that investors can start SIP-kind of investments that are spread over a 12 month period so that the current crisis period can be negotiated successfully. The investment horizon should be 3-5 years. The SIP can be done as a basket investment with 10-14 stocks with a periodicity of a month or fortnight.
14 stocks to buy
In fact, IDBI also gives in a list of 14 SIP stocks which have the possibility of making investors rich.
The best way to describe this investment mechanism is - 'little drops of water make the ocean'. SIP is the most basic, flexible and easy way for you to of earn big money through hard-earned investments.
A Mutual Fund SIP is currently at a booming stage, and is seen as the most convenient, hassle-free and smartest way of investment. One can invest a certain amount in SIP at regular intervals namely weekly, monthly or quarterly.
SIP is an easy step to negotiate and it also ensures discipline in your savings. All you have to do is open an SIP account with a financial institution, and link it with your bank account. Depending upon your investment strategy, money will automatically get deducted from your bank account on weekly, monthly or quarterly basis.
The positives of investing in SIP include:
Pressure is not on you for speculating or focus on timing the market - such is not the right way for generating returns over long term.
Considering there are intervals of investment like weekly, monthly or quarterly, you tend feel very little impact of market volatility.
It is highly disciplined, passive and automated. Funds get deducted automatically from bank, which makes you more committed to guaranteed saving/investment.
Hassle-free and flexible. Any citizen can create/update/cancel SIP anytime.
Investment amount in SIP starts as low as Rs 500 per month, which eliminates the burden of managing your overall expenses on monthly basis, as very little is deducted.
There are two 'magical' methods which greatly help investors earn big through SIPs.
Firstly is rupee-cost averaging. As we are aware that market is sentiment driven and unpredictable, this creates an issue on when is the best time for investment. With rupee-cost averaging, an investor with SIP earns more units when the price is low and less units when price is high. Over teh long term, the equation is mostly in profitable territory.
Second would be power of compounding. Every amount you invest, you earn interest on it. This interests get compounded and accumulated over a period of time. The higher the SIP tenure the higher would be your return.
Of course, investors should know that they must invest hefty amounts to ensure big returns too.
