There are two ways to look at this situation. For example, if you are comfortable doing your homework and investing in equities then direct equities are for you. If you think you cannot spend so much time tracking stocks then the best thing to do is to buy mutual funds where the portfolio is automatically diversified and there is an expert fund manager to take care of y our investments. There are two ways you can approach the problem and you can actually do both. On the equities front, you can look to buy specific stocks at attractive valuations. For example, HDFC Bank and Maruti are available at very attractive valuations then you can buy these stocks at current levels. Alternatively you can also buy index ETFs or index funds in this market to make the best of the upturn in the next 2-3 years. There are multiple ways to take advantage of such sharp corrections in the market.
