which sector to invest now?

Investors with a long-term view can also look at accumulating stocks in sectors such as capital goods, construction, media and entertainment. In the case of construction, the investment would be 'contrarian', as the sector has been beaten down heavily in the last few months.

Aggressive investors can also look at banking and financial services as these could get a much-needed reform boost soon. But remember that these sectors are still not free from the problem of high interest rates. In the end, it's you who will have to decide whether you have the confidence in the potential of the stock markets.
