Pall of gloom in markets pervades funds
The 280+ point fall in the Sensex yesterday has pushed the BSE Sensex perilously close to the 4,000-mark sending alarm signals to the equity investors. It follows that mutual fund investors aren't very thrilled either.
So are we in a bear market? Its something a lot of people have started to believe, but no one's willing to comment just yet. The decline in software stocks has taken its toll on software fund net asset values (NAVs). Growth funds with over-exposure to software stocks have not fared too well either. But what is interesting is that in some cases growth fund NAVs have declined more sharply than those of software funds (compare IT funds with Growth funds for 1-week and 1-month).

As consumer product stocks are on the wane, FMCG funds have also witnessed some erosion in NAVs. Of course, the decline in not of the same magnitude as IT funds and Growth funds.
