You need to track those stocks and whenever you get any buying opportunity to say the decline of above 15-20 percent one should start accumulating in 3 to 4 phase. You never know when the falling would bottom out that is why it is advisable to buy on phases.

Don’t Sell on Panic

It is usual that whenever there is a stock market crash, investors or traders press the panic button and sell their portfolio to save hard-earned money. This thinking is wrong, as the great Warren Buffett has rightly said … “you need to Zigg when other’s Zagg!.” It means when other people sell their shares on panic, be there to invest instead.

Whereas the pharma stocks, FMCG stocks are known as recession-proof stock. But that doesn't mean when there is a recession or stock market crash these stock will never fall. These will also fall but would fall less than the luxury stocks.


To conclude you should prepare yourself mentally that stock market crash may come at any time particularly when the market is at peak. During that time you must have some cash on hand so that you can invest in fundamentally sound stock in correction at an attractive price.

You should keep calm knowing that your existing portfolio may fall maximum 25-30 percent. If your portfolio is in a great combination of good fundamentally aggressive and recession-proof stocks it would definitely recover your portfolio fast.

It is also important that you should not get influenced by any financial/social media or any person during the time of the stock market crash.
