Dear Ashal and experts,

today RD andFD rates of private banks droped by 0.5%, gold is on high, and equity on steady state , what should be the bet now, (If I suppose to invest some money for short and some for long term.)???

PPF is giving more than RD,FD.

how does this senario affect debt MF returns?

    Dear Ashal,

    For long term equity MF and for short term Debt MF, I understand that. But
    My worries are that for short term I am investing in FD and Rds, and as their rates have gone down , so I have to plan for Debt MF , but does their return rates are directly proportional to bank rates or inversly proportional, Or are they not interrelated.

    for long term child education and retirement , I am going with equity MF, and PPF (expecting good returns and tax efficient also).

    What exactly is your question ? Why are you asking this question at the end of the day . I mean to say, how does this short term change and the situation at the “moment” going to severely impact your long term plans ? Do you fear that ?

  3. Dear Pawan, The time tested rule remain same, for short term, invest in Debt & for long term invest in Eq. Should I say more?
