Investment in Troubled Times

For the past 2 months, we have seen the vari­ous coun­tries’ indexes dropped by more than 10 per cents in more than one instances. The fin­an­cial mar­ket is now in a mess, with giant fin­an­cial insti­tu­tions in U.S. and Eupose being shut­down, acquired or nation­al­ised.

In these troubled times, should we leave the money in banks, sav­ings account, Fixed Depos­it or take it as an oppor­tun­it­ies? War­ren Buf­fet, the great U.S. suc­cess­ful investor, had just recently revealed that he was going to pull out all his per­son­al money from bonds to U.S. equit­ies.

So it  may be times to invest in those com­pan­ies with sound fin­an­cial back­ground which have been beaten relent­lessly by the recent devel­op­ment. See the sequence of events hap­pen­ded in Septem­ber 08 and assess what kind of investor you are.
