Can You Analyze My Mutual Fund Portfolio? Is it Right Time to Opt for Large-cap Funds for 3-4 Years?

What should I do when market is down
These are questions we receive daily, thru various mediums (like Quora). Is this right time to invest in Mutual funds? Which Mutual funds are best? What is the correct time frame to invest in Mutual Funds? and many more…
So today I am sharing summary of the answers I have already posted on Quora.
It’s great to see that you are clear on your investment objective. But what is not logical, is the fact that; you want “Advisory Services”, which is free of cost, and that too, thru an open forum like Quora. That’s the biggest mistake you are undertaking, for your savings.
First, Direct plans are only meant for people, who can do independent research on their own, i.e. don’t need any guidance or help whatsoever, whereas you are seeking help.


The Right Advisor


After reading an article by Carl Richard, “The Behaviour Gap” … Investing is not about skill, but about behaviour.

From his article, Quote … “Even by owning an average mutual fund, investors who behave correctly can outperform 99% of their neighbours. Alternatively, for investors who spend their whole lives searching for the best investment, an entire lifetime’s return can be wiped out by one single behavioural mistake.” Unquote.
