After a cheerful 2017 and a rocking January 2018, the first week of February 2018 has been a nightmare for investors. Though the index is down by ~ 8%, quite a few stocks have fallen sharply from their 52 week highs. Stocks like PC Jeweller, Somany Ceramics, etc have fallen by more than 25% as stock markets across the globe enter a bearish phase. In general, the fear of inflation, higher interest rates, falling bond prices and rising yields have taken away the valuation comforts which equities were enjoying.
