The economy has been in flux ever since it was paralyzed because of COVID. Everyone is all familiar with the ups and downs of the stock market due to COVID. Sometimes it increases too much and sometimes it grows less. For example, this week, the BSE Sensex fell by 700 points on one day and rose by 700 points on the second day. In the same way, there is less fluctuation in the market. Like the Sensex was up 200 points in the morning on Wednesday, but it closed with a slight drop at the time of closing.
In such a situation, if you want to leave behind the ups and downs, then you can follow the path of mutual funds.
