Stay put till mid-December

The domestic equity market has been radiating bearish sentiment since last many trading sessions amid weak global cues and the Rupee’s fresh fall against the US dollar. Some of the well-known names including BhartiAirtel, BhartiInfratel, Eicher Motors, Bandhan Bank, HUDCO, Indiabulls Real Estate, ICICI Securities, J.KumarInfraprojects, Jaiprakash Power Ventures, Jubilant Industries, KewalKiran Clothing, Max Financial Services, Supreme Industries, Tata Communications, TPL Plastech, Walchandnagar Industries, and Zuari Global have hit 52-week lows. A very prominent analyst known for his accurate predictions has been advising his clients to stay on cash and not to get into the averaging game or fresh buying. He feels that venturing out with fresh fund before mid-December would be a very bad idea.
