Global stock markets crash! What should we do now?

Good Morning Everyone, Major panic was seen yesterday, where worried investors sold huge in the market also led by the FIIs, bringing the Nifty to its biggest fall in a day in the last 10 months. But the most important thing to note here is that the stock market is not for the faint-hearted, but for the strong-hearted person with a stable mind and patience.


All the weak-hearted investors have been expelled yesterday by the market itself.


What should an intelligent investor do now?


The only answer is to buy! Yes, every stock is available at a great price, so we need to invest in those shares and use this opportunity to build a great portfolio in a staged manner.


No one knows the bottom of the market, but investing in stages during this situation can give us great returns.


It was major panic selling seen in the last hour of market which led to a low of 16200.

On a daily chart, the Nifty has formed a strong bearish candle.
