The Indian equity markets are on an extended bull run and scaling new heights with each passing day. To illustrate, the benchmark Nifty 50 index has more than doubled to over 17,000 points from its most recent bottom of around 8,000 points. But there is a flip side to the euphoric markets. Such a performance lures many new investors to the markets, which is both a good thing as well as a bad thing. It is good because it nudges people, who are otherwise away from investments, to join the financial investments’ space. The flip side is that such a market paints a rosy picture and makes people take hasty and poor decisions.
These decisions, often taken out of fear-of-missing-out caused by the euphoric markets, end up becoming causes for losses over time. This mainly happens when novice investors take exposure to relatively lesser-known businesses. Such investors, in all likelihood, do not understand the complexities of the businesses and end up taking positions just on the basis of hearsay or some stock tips.
