Does it make sense to invest in mutual funds when the markets are down?
Currently, the markets are in a downward trend. Is it the right time to make an investment?

Nobody can predict the market. Buying when the market is at the bottom and selling when it is high is called timing the market. Countless studies have proven that it is not easy strategy to follow. Beating the market on a regular basis for a very long term is almost impossible. That is how many investment experts believe that investing a small amount regularly over a long period is the best way to maximise wealth.
