Market prices falling? – should you exit your long-term stock specific portfolio too?
Sharp falls in market prices generally make headlines across all media. And no sooner when the index falls, predictions of more doom start pouring in from all corners. Clearly, the mood is that of panic and fear. And we won’t blame the investors if they are unwilling to touch stocks even with a six-feet pole. Simply because our brains are hardwired to make us run from danger at the first sight of it. And when it comes to investing, nothing can be more dangerous than seeing stocks suffer violent declines in a matter of hours.
