If you are scared by the idea of investing in the stock market, you are not alone. Individuals with very little equity trading background are either scared by the average investor’s horror stories of losing 50% of their portfolio worth for instance, in the two bear markets that have already taken place in this century or are seduced by “hot tips” that bear the promise of immense rewards but seldom pay off. Not unexpectedly, then, the investing sentiment pendulum is said to swing between fear and greed. The truth is that investing in the stock market entails risk, but it is one of the most successful ways of building up one’s net worth when approached in a balanced manner.

By reaching 50,000 thresholds, the BSE Sensex has recently hit a historical peak, whilst the NSE Nifty hit close to 15,000, almost doubling from its recent low of nearly 7,500 during the COVID-19 sale-off. The stock market is projected to continue on the positive note for the next four to five years, according to the stock market bulls, but declines will occur from time to time.
