Hi Mraju
I guess this is not the right forum for me to give tips or recommendations. But I can give you an approach which will in probability give you surprisingly same results.
Select group of stocks which you think are fundamentally strong, create a list (It could be Sensex/Nifty stocks, A group from Midacap, I mean anything). But you should be convinced that they are of value. Lets say you selected 50 or may be 100 stocks.
Then you put them randomly spread on a DART board. Take 10 to 15 DARTS throw at the board and here you go this is your model Portfolio which will track market returns most of the time with the market, no need for tips, no need for MF investment or pay higher commission. It is that simple. Please don't laugh, this is serious. I know it works, there are books written on it.

But point here is where will market go, and I come back to my previous posts, I am surely bearish for time being, so I have given my DART board for repairs. Will look at it after December.

Dear Mraju
I wish I had an answer, if I had I would be running my own business, may be minting money and would have owned properties across world. But that is not the case and I guess if anybody says he knows what is going to happen on a day to day basis, he is surely fooling you. That is why I don't like Broker mafia. Any how I am not a hard core investor who analyzes investments, I am a consultant wandering around the world and love to read and surf net on how this financial disaster would unfold. As one of my hobbies I read about 30 to 40 blogs everyday, which probably gives some insight about world macro economy, but if you are asking how market will behave on a daily basis believe me I don't have any clue. Yes I am still bearish, solely because this is a crisis of confidence, de-leveraging effects both will lead to higher default rates, higher cost of funding for companies. Moreover impending recession is definitely going to take a toll on Earnings of corporates. So my sane advice will be to go for those companies which are cash rich, lower leverage, and who have higher proportion of sales from domestic operations (I may be wrong, this is not a signal to buy, as I reiterate I am not a so called "Expert"). Even then we are going to witness falling P/E multiples because of the above mentioned reasons. Therefore if you are asking my personal reasons I am still bearish. Yes I have been sitting with cash, but I don't have balls to buy right now.

Wish you luck.

In coming days, we will see governments joining hands and try and intervene in markets, assuring investors they will act. There is already a talk of cutting interest rates, RBI has cut CRR today is a precursor of things to come. But mind you this is now a solvency crisis world over than a liquidity crisis. Recession is for sure, god forbid it should not go to deep depression. Sit light, enjoy with your kids rather than torture yourself in front of trading terminals or in front of idiot box (TV)
