Indian stock market has been very volatile for more than a year. One day the stock indices rise steeply and on the next day they fall sharply. This has made things difficult for the investors. They are confused and this can be affirmed by the participation of retail investors in the market. The current trends in the markets give signals of unexpected future and high volatility. And this has made investors confused.
The Indian stocks are very volatile. Even the blue-chip stocks are not safe now for investment purpose. For the long term investors the Indian stock market has provided no incentive to invest in the market. Instead the long term investors who invested during the fall of 2008 expecting that they were getting blue chip or value stocks cheaper have not been able to get back the invested capital till now leave any real returns on the investments apart.
