Markets have been extremely volatile lately. The global economy was already facing a tough time when we were struck by the COVID-19 pandemic. This has left many of us wondering if it is the right time to invest. Some of us are tempted to invest in the market when it is low to earn a profit when it bounces back. While others are exiting the market altogether to avoid further losses.
The markets have proven year after year, that while global pandemics have a short-term impact on the market, in the long term, patience always wins. Let’s look at the table below which shows how the markets were affected during each pandemic (which is evident from the market returns during that period) but, over the course of 5 years the markets have recovered and how!
So, how to invest in the current market scenario? The simple answer to that is Systematic Investments. Keep investing little by little. If you were already doing so; don’t stop. Do not give in to panic or greed. Stay the course and you will be alright.
