The Indian market has been very volatile over the last few sessions. The Sensex was down 162.58 points and closed at 18,683.68 on Friday. The Nifty lost 52.50 points and ended at 5,686.25.

Karwa says it is important for retail investors to be consistently invested in the equity markets rather than trying to time their investments. “Over a longer period of time, they should be able to make decent returns,” he adds.

Below is the edited transcript of the interview on CNBC-TV18.

Q: What’s a good strategy now for a retail investor in general and a new investor in particular?

Karwa: Sentiments keep on changing. There are various reasons for that. But it is important for retail investors to be consistently invested in the equity markets rather than trying to time their investments. I think timing in the market is not so important as how much time do you spend in the markets. So, you will see positivity, you will see negativity. Today, the sentiment is good, it will go back tomorrow. But retail investors shouldn’t be so much worried about the sentiment, as far as looking to invest in the markets is concerned.

They should be looking at the fact that they have put an X amount of money into equity and consistently remain in the market. Over a longer period of time, they should be able to make decent returns. Just because the sentiment is up, you shouldn’t be so excited. Similarly, whenever sentiments are weak, I don’t think so you should be worried about notional mark-to-market losses on your portfolio.
