Ambush buying or ambush selling is something we all love to do, right? Is this not what we do more often than not? When you have a corpus to invest, you tend to deploy the money in the market immediately. But, there is merit in a phased approach. The phased approach allows you to get a better bargain in stocks, especially when they are volatile. Secondly, by deploying all the money in one shot you are stuck in the zero liquidity syndromes. In the event of any fund requirement you may end up undertaking a distress sale of your shares. Always invest gradually and in a phased manner! Wait for opportunities. Don’t be in a hurry to deploy your funds as if there is no tomorrow. It does not work that way.
