No one is talking about markets and investments these days , as they used to talk a couple of months ago. Conversations on Stock/ MF , Browsing of Investment sites/blogs, Display/ reading of investment mags. are not a great trend now as it was sometime ago.
The Fad seems to be gone. For one who is seriously looking at creating wealth for the long term, equity markets are a great place to invest now. Not that the worst is over yet. But investors who invest during tough times and are patient ( 5 years and above) will reap great benefits during the boom cycle that follows.
If you have the right investment spirit , this should be the best time for you to start an SIP in a diversified mutual fund ( having a long term investment view). If you are already sipping it out, you continue to be on the right path of wealth creation
