Go for floating rate mutual fund or fixed deposit with your bank without lock-in year. Both the options gives you 100% liquidity. You can exit from these when the market is suitable for you.

Hope it will help you.

when i am thinking to come out of diversified equity mutual funds and be in bank fd, or liquid mf, current sky rocketing 15-16% inflation rate comes to my mind. what would be better: the assets in form of equity shares , or continuously devaluing currency in form of fd, or liquid mf? would not it better, if half the a/m for the fd/liquid to be kept in gold etf? or let it be there where it is now for long term- some mf schemes have returned more than 10% than nav of dt.08-0-2008.
