Lessons from 2008

Five mistakes that you should not repeat in the coming year.

For many investors, 2008 was a nightmare that came true. After four years of boom, when the tables turned, it wiped out lakhs of crores of investors’ wealth.

Last December, there would have been a smile on everyone’s face. While the US had started feeling the pinch of the sub prime crisis, many experts claimed that India was decoupled from what was happening there. Well, it took just one month to change the scenario.
