Leave either part profit or full in the same stock and withdraw your principal amount.
Sugars due to ethanol, textiles run has started.
Make hay while the sun shines and play it safe without getting too greedy!
Stocks are actually a good hedge against inflation, assuming a portion of holding is sold - it needs to be invested otherwise asset price inflation will cause cash to lose value pretty fast. Already FD interest is not covering inflation. Same is true in the US, bonds and cash are basically in negative return territory. Tech companies of all kinds represent good value whether it’s IT, pharma, manufacturing, etc, In India’s it’s the ITES companies, pharma and may be two wheelers because they have scale. Staying invested in quality Companies is still the best I feel. Huge TINA factor in favour of quality stocks.

True that. Staying invested in CDSL, MCX, IEX and the likes apart from the sectors you indicated will be quite good.
The good ones will always bounce back so long as their fundamentals don’t change for the worse in which case it might be good to exit.

Why is everyone posting charts and news of the US market and then they keep writing 'we' etc. in their posts?

Is it just for illustration or this discussion is for NRIs/US citizens or something else entirely that I am missing?

We definitely cannot assume blindly that what holds true for the US market holds true for the Indian market? At a minimum there might be a huge timing lag or both curves might just be out of phase.


Generally, markets follow each other world-wide in major trends. See this :

Follow some basic principles and you will be good:

1) Focus on TIME-IN the market rather TIMMING the market
2) Stick to your asset allocation. (100 - Age) should be equity % and rest debt %. Balanced funds could be a good starting point
3) Balance your portfolio every 6 months or after any big market crash
4) People who stuck to their portfolio allocation during COVID related market crashes, are sitting pretty on the returns
5) If you are new to stock market, start with Mutual funds. Don't jump into direct stocks unless you understand how markets work. Take help of an independent financial consultant, pay an yearly fees and follow his advice. But go via direct investment route. You can invest in many AMCs on the fly. They do all the verification online.
6) Try not to get tempted in following tips by so called market experts, as many times they are motivated. Watch stock market related web series / movies to get a better idea. Although there are lot of checks and balances are in place by SEBI now, but still loopholes exists

Happy Investing!
