Sensex is trading in the region of 40,000 points. A big correction was expected since the start of this year. However, Sensex is climbing higher and higher even after slowdown in GDP and much other negative news. It seems some players do not wants Sensex to go down and they are pumping money even on small positive news and ignoring negative news such as trade war altogether.
Most of large cap stocks are already overvalued and market PE ratio is at its high, which is the very important indicator of over valuation. In such scenario, small retail investors and new investors must not buy new stocks to avoid huge losses. Because stock market can crash anytime and wipe away all your hard earned money in a day or a week.

If you are very keen to invest, invest through mutual funds which are less risky. To read my post about mutual funds, click here.
