Do not forget law of demand: Go back to basics of Economics. When the price of a good falls, the demand for it rises and vice versa. In stock market, retail investors start thronging the market only when it starts going up drastically. This is a wrong approach. The stocks need to be bought when they are available cheap and not when the prices have firmed up.
Do not make lump sum investment: If the stock market has started looking like the most desired destination for your investment after it has gone up substantially, it is better to invest small amount of money and not make lump sum investment. Put small money through mutual funds and invest regularly.
Do not get influenced by stock tips: Now that the market has started going up, the next to follow will be rumors. This will include lots of information exchange on small cap stocks which till the other day nobody had even heard of. It is time to be careful about these stocks. Do not buy these stocks which mostly sold through word of mouth and retail investors find them stuck after certain time.
