New Delhi [India], Dec 26 (ANI): Stock market expert DK Agarwal is of the opinion that even though the market is full of opportunities at present, the investors should still be cautious and not get swayed with the rising trends.

"I would advise investors not to get swayed by this bullishness in the market. They should either invest through mutual funds, or they should do their own research, and not invest in small cap companies or the companies which are being managed by weak management," said Agarwal while talking to ANI.

"The market is full of opportunities. Don't buy when the market is going up. Whenever the market takes a hit, use that as an opportunity to buy your select stocks," he added.

He also maintained that owing to positive domestic and global factors, the market should continue to do well in the coming times.

"The uncertainty has ended and now there is more clarity. Everything is looking better from stock market perspective," the expert said.

Lauding reforms such as the Goods and Services Tax (GST), Agarwal said that in the coming times one can expect the positive results of GST to reflect on the stock market.

"Going forward, we are expecting the positive results of GST to flow in. The market will also be guided by the December quarter results and budget considerations," he concluded.
