Question 2 : Which are the funds/schemes, to opt for buying additional units?

Question 3 : Which are the funds/schemes to make immediate exit or changes ?

Question 4 : What should I do with my Systematic Withdrawal Plans. Will it get effected ?


Lets us find the answer on all these questions One by One :


Question 1 : Why there is a sudden fall in the Equity Market ? Will it continue to fall more ?

Answer : As you know Equity Market always shows early reaction to the news - whether its good or bad ! In the current scenario , INFLATION is the culprit. Across the world, every government pumped in huge money in the system to fight the COVID crisis, during FY 19-20 and FY 20-21. Of course such money was pumped in by way of subsidy, waivers, free ration etc. Hence FY 21-22 saw a very good upturn in the economy.


Generally, such pumping or liquidity is absorbed by way of more job creation or other consumption factors. However, it did not happen that way, across the Globe ! May be due to rise in Oil Prices and Metals prices due to Russia - Ukrain War situation and other factors. Hence Inflation kept climbing.


As a layman you can understand that government has a very simple and first measure to tame inflation - INCREASE THE INTEREST RATE to suck excess liquidity.


Last week, many economies across the world raised the interest rate - India, US, UK etc. Consequently , the increase in interest rate resulted in this sudden fall in Equity Market. Most importantly, when US raised their interest rate, most of the FIIs money started moving to US bonds or deposits ( for better Risk- Reward ratio)


Experts believe that this is not a permanent event - market has almost discounted this pain of Inflation. Market will soon settle down with rising interest rate scenario. However experts also predict that Dollor ($) may witness some more rise against rupee in days to come; so the road ahead may be little choppy. Still, frontline and Bluechip companies are now available at better rates and good valuation



Question 2 : Which are the funds/schemes, to opt for buying additional units?

Answer : Experts believe that Large Cap and Value stocks have taken more beating, and they are available at good discount. However, Small & Midcap must not be ignored at such a cheap price. Hence we have collected a list of category, which could be on your Top list for buying additional units or Fresh Units.

Important Note : Please note that the path to growth in any Equity Fund or related schemes, comes with an element of Volatility & Market Risk. So remain invested in your selected portfolio and keep adding units during patchy times for building better wealth

Question 3 : Which are the funds/schemes to make immediate exit or changes ?

Answer : This is not at all a good time to make any switches between Equity Funds. Yes, you may add on to some units in your folios related to any of the above Equity Category. If you are investing through SIP ( Systematic Investment Plan), then its best ! You may add some extra funds in your SIP folios for better cost averaging in the cost of your Units


Question 4 : What should I do with my Systematic Withdrawal Plans. Will it get effected ?

Answer : Retired investors who have chosen Dynamic Asset Allocation or Balanced Advantage Funds as their Annuity / SWP ( Systematic Withdrawal Plan) , should not worry at all ! As the funds will decrease their Debt allocation and increase their Equity allocation to take advantage of this situation. See the chart below, to understand the strength of Balanced Advantage Fund and how they dynamically manage the Debt & Equity ratio to keep your portfolio in positive return range :
