    Thanks Anshuk for quick response

    1. Yes, i am just in the process of selecting funds and hence have listed the choice that i have made so far..
    2. Sure..i was hearing that Pvt banking stocks would do well in 2013 and hence chose that banking fund
    3.Yes,my intention is also to divide the 1 lac among the listed ones..i need to finalize the list of MF which i am currently doing and need help.

    Any recommendation on the liquid/ultra short term funds that you have..How is Reliance Floating Rate Fund – Short Term – Dividend based..or any other recommendation that you have?

    4. Direct Plans …Not sure of these

    5. will check HDFC top 200

    So how long shud i wait to enter as you said there would be market correction?

    1. I don’t think you should have more than 3-4 funds in your portfolio
    2. Don’t go for sectoral funds (in your case banking). If you have confidence in the sector, buy stocks.
    3. Don’t go for lumpsum investment. I would say divide the above and future investments in next 6 months. Also I believe the market is up and would correct in near future. You can keep the money in a liquid/ultra short term fund by that time. You will earn 8-9%
    4. You can wait for the direct plans to come
    5. Why didn’t you try HDFC top 200 or Quantum Long term equity (very low expenses)
