A correction was due where geopolitical tension has become an excuse for this correction.

Inflation and rising interest rates are the major concerns for equity markets and geopolitical tension is increasing the risk of inflation as energy prices are rising,” said Parth Nyati, Founder at Tradingo.”Anecdotally, such kinds of geopolitical issues provide a good buying opportunity for the long-term investors and we are in a structural bull run that is likely to continue for the next couple of years where intermediate corrections will be part of this journey.”Long-term investors are recommended not to panic and look for buying opportunities from lower levels where the domestic economy facing sectors like capital goods, infrastructure, real estate, and financials should be on investors’ radar, Nyati added.Nifty sectoral indices fell Ain the 2-6 per cent range, with PSU bank, realty, and media declining the most, NSE data showed.
