The year has come to an end, and the festive season is peaking. So, the equity market also responds accordingly during this time. However, this year has been quite different. There was volatility and a bearish trend to subdue trading sessions right through 2022. So, as an investor, it is better to wait and watch during such times. A long-term strategy has often saved many investors from losing money in the short term. Alongside this, diversification is another technique to mitigate any risk associated with trading during volatile times. So, do thorough market research before putting your money on any sector or stock to remain safe during market upheavals.
