I have heard this question from many since the markets have fallen so much since the lockdown has been placed to fight with Coronavirus. There are many investors who had invested their hard-earned money in the markets just before this pandemic and now are in losses. Many of these investors are also those who had invested in markets on margin too.

So, what is the answer to the question investors are asking?

My view is that if you are an actually an 'investor', you should not be bogged down by this downfall. We all understand that this fall is big and also that this is temporary. We will come over this pandemic, once the lockdown is removed, the markets will rise again. If you sell your investments today, you will actually convert your 'notional' loss to 'actual' loss. Also, this is a general view and if you have any personal requirement or financial exigency, then you know best what decision you need to take.

I, personally, also believe that these are the times when you should be investing money in the markets with long term view (5-10 years view). But as it is difficult for small investors to identify and research quality stocks, I recommend that one should invest via Mutual funds.

What is your view? Are you making any investment these days?
