Markets snap 2-week winning streak

Markets snap 2-week winning streak
Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Indian stock markets ended the week with losses and major benchmark indices witnessed selling pressure as they ended the week in red. A couple of global as well as domestic developments led to this. Metal stocks saw massive selling pressure after seeing an unprecedented run-up in prices over the last couple of months.

Along with metals, investors booked profits in Financial, Auto as well as IT stocks. Globally, investors were net sellers of emerging market equities (like India) amid concerns that the US may raise interest rates from next year. This led to investors shun risky assets for safer developed market assets.

SIPs with smallcase

SIP stands for Systematic Investment Plan. As the name suggests, it helps the investor allocate funds in a smart and disciplined manner. Timing the markets is a difficult task, but SIP eliminates that worry. With SIP, you can invest fixed amounts at regular intervals. You, then, stand to have an advantage over market volatility and do not need to monitor the markets constantly.

Buy more when the price is low, less when the price is high. If on the SIP date, the stock price is high, you will be able to buy a lesser number of shares. And vice versa. This ensures that you invest more at lower prices and less at higher prices, and hence your overall cost of acquisition gets averaged out. Try out investing with SIPs in smallcases for passive, long-term wealth creation.

And that’s all for this week. Take care, and happy investing! 🙂
