ETMarkets Investors' Guide: Will Fed taper be the first big stop for D-Street bulls?

Hello, you have tuned into ETMarkets Investors’ Guide, a show about asset classes, investment ideas and market trends. I am Nikhil Agarwal.

After minutes of the Federal Reserve Open Market Committee meeting released last week revealed that the central bank may announce tapering at its next meeting in November, market participants have been left worried. How serious is the threat to investors on Dalal Street? Will the taper tantrum lead to an abrupt end to the bull run?

In today’s special podcast with independent market expert Rajiv Nagpal, we try to understand how any tapering of bond buying by the Fed impacts equity investors in India.

Listen in.

Welcome to the show Mr Nagpal.

1) Can you explain in simple terms what does tapering of asset purchases mean?

2) If the Federal Reserve announces tapering from next month, what are the probable scenarios for equity investors in India?

3) Can you also tell us how equity markets have reacted in the past to such tapering?

4) As taper tantrum is much feared by equity investors, how can one protect his or her portfolio to make it taper-proof?

Thank you Mr Nagpal. That’s all in today’s special podcast. But do keep checking this space for more such interesting content. Good bye!
