Guess-Proofed Investing

Stagger your investment schedule over a period of time

Is it the right time to invest? I intend to invest around Rs 50,000 in ELSS. Another thing is that if I am investing in a mutual fund on Monday, then what would be the NAV?

It is always difficult to time your entry in the market. Things could be quite scary if, after you invest, the markets fall by say, five per cent, as happened in January. Markets would always be like this - temperamental.

Therefore, you should stagger your investment. Instead of investing Rs 50,000 at one go, why not invest Rs 10,000 every week. Choose a good fund.

Secondly, if your investment is made before 3 p.m., that day’s net asset value (NAV) would be applicable.
