Smart Money analysis: Mutual Funds

How Mutual funds are actually behaving?

When you compare Price action of sensex and Mutual funds investment behavior, one thing becomes obvious. Mutual Funds are performing better in bull markets and tend to make many investing errors in uncertain periods and bear markets. From the perspective of a trader, This is nothing more than a Trend following strategy. “If Price rises buy and buy more, if price falls sell and sell more”. This is the Mantra.

If we ever Witness a Minor Correction in Indian Stock Market, then entire Holdings will either be hedged or liquidated. In simple words, If a Minor selloff affects the Performance of Mutual funds then expect a Major fall in sensex. As International investors are walking away from Indian stocks, our domestic investors seem to take on more risk. This means securities are shifting from more experienced international investors to biased domestic investors.

Paul Tudor Jones is right, when he said Price action moves first – Fundamentals come next”… It makes sense.
