AS the FBM KLCI breached below 1,500 and fell into correction territory last week, the broad based market selloff appear to have spooked many retail investors.
To gauge sentiment, it is easy to realise how many of them are in fact hesitant at this juncture to take a position while some are even considering to cut losses and throw in the towel.
This is the psyche of the retail investor. Most are gung ho when the market is rallying.
However, when the market turns as it is, majority would either stay at the sidelines or stop investing altogether.
It would appear their confidence evaporate altogether. Why is that so?

Scaling one’s entry and being patient are immensely crucial for retail investors to be able to sustain a down cycle. The reason is due to the limited capital available for investment purposes.
During a down cycle, the market would always appear to be flooded with never ending bad news.Bursa gallery twos
Be it the Omicron variant, the United States Federal Reserve taper, tech bubble in the United States and many other negative headlines.
However, if we were to look back a few months ago, such themes were already in play except Omicron.
Of course there were always risk of new variants but entering the winter months in Europe and countries north of the equator, flu incidences were bound to increase significantly anyway.
These are not information which are hard to see or process. The question is, to what extent is our local market policies and economic measures supportive and catalytic for a strong market.
In the current climate, apart from a drastic change in direction from the Ministry of Finance with regards to supportive policies and organic improvement or growth of the private sector, I do not see any encouraging catalyst in the near to mid-term.
However, that does not mean I am bearish in terms of taking investment positions. On the contrary, with so many companies performance far from its peak throughout the year, value have in fact emerged for many of them.
I would even go as far as to say, any investor can easily take a position in a relatively good quality company now and stand to do well in time. The key word is time.
