The Global markets are positive and trading at all time high levels but still Indian markets have not recovered yet. It is the time wise correction which is happening in Indian markets. Investors can start investing now. I still don’t think that this Bull Run has end. This can be seen as running correction and we can again make all-time highs in short term.

In US Fed have started tapering where FED will reduce bond buying program where FED now will buy $15 Billion bonds from $120 Billion bonds. The Interest rates are still near 0% and reduction of bond buying program was known by the US markets and hence US markets are making all-time high levels.
