Hi Clara, you are right to say that the current downturn presents an opportunity for investors. Personally, I don't think that the market is gonna turn for the better anytime soon, unless there are signs of confidence returning to the market. Currently, looking at the explosive rise in cases around the world, as well as the lack of significant economic stimulants, investors are choosing to stay off the market for the time being. What I'm doing now to take advantage of the situation is as follows: 1) Research into companies with strong fundamentals, both locally and in US. This is personal preference, as I'm more keen towards these 2 markets. You can look into other countries as well if you have the interest. By researching, I refer to looking at how their business will be affected by the lockdown and interest rate cuts etc, whether their price now is low compared to their book value, whether they are capable of giving dividends in this tough times, their daily trading volume, and other factors. Put these stocks in your watchlist as you track them daily, and take note of how the stock behaves. 2) Track the US futures during the day, and US dow movements at night when their market opens. This will give a general sense of direction in our market (i.e. US market down, usually our market will go down as well). 3) Keep yourself updated on news and analyst reports and sentiments. The above are not foolproof method, they won't definitely guarantee you a profit should you decide to invest. But by doing due diligence, you can be more confident of your investments, and for companies with strong fundamentals, historically they have always rebounded very strongly after a bearish market. Hope this helps!
