Stock Market investments are subject to market risks, it can make you billionaire in a day or even can bankrupt you due to this reason you need to have some knowledge on stock market before you start investing in stocks, derivatives etc, else you can get huge financial losses so, for those who do intraday or swing trading require advanced knowledge on stock market instruments & technical analysis, techniques like hedging to recover losses and mainly fundamental analysis is primarly required to study stock carefully before you invest to survive in the stock market.

As per stock market analysts & experts it is better & best choice to invest in Nifty 50 Index funds for long term due to it's strong fundementals which will attract investors, low volatility that can give price stability, large market capitalisation that won't give advantage to market big players to manipulate the price of share over Nifty Next 50, mid cap and low cap funds which have high volatility that will give big fluctuations of share price, low market capitalisation that will give advantage to market big players who can manipulate the price of share with large scale buying or selling whenever they want according to thier requirments and weak fundamentals which will make investors to stay away, so yes mid-cap and low can give you rapid big profits in short term but when they get into bearish mode it can give unbearable big losses to investors as well.

However, In stock market anything can happen you can't predict future so even you have investments in Index Funds that doesn't mean you will not get losses you will just have little more safety compared to mid cap and low cap funds for Example : if you invested in 5 to 10 nifty 50 shares after carefully checking & analysing each stock fundamentals, charts etc but in future the nifty 50 stocks that you invested can make you billionaire or even get you huge losses that won't even let you recover your capital, this is why stock market billionaire Warren Buffet says to protect your capital first. 

So, don't invest in stock market by taking loans or borrowing money, as per stock market principles only invest 10% of your total capital that you can afford to loss and always keep liquid cash in your bank or with you that you can utilise for various reasons or situations in future instead depending on stocks.

If you don't have risk appetite but you still insisting to invest in stock market then you can invest in mutual funds, the money you invested in mutual funds will be disbursed in numerous stocks analysed & monitored by expert fund managers to get profits for your investments but they take little fees or share on your profits for the work they done.

Eventhough, Mutual funds are little better  and safer due to expert fund managers yet it is only for those who don't have enough knowledge on stock market and can't select shares on thier own then mutual funds can be considered as a choice but there is no guarantee mutual funds can also get you losses due to human error in selecting stocks or in the times of bearish market etc.

In this scenario, we have better option over mutual funds named index funds, in Index funds we have numerous plans but Nifty 50 and Nifty Next 50 Index fund growth direct plans are popular choices among stock market investors these days, in index funds money you invested will be automatically distributed equally to all Nifty 50 or Nifty Next 50 shares due to very less work index fund managers take very minimal fees like 0.1 so that you will  gain maximum profits without the need of checking shares frequently which you will do when you invest manually or through mutual funds.

But, As per stock market governing authority sebi rules, we stating again stock market investments are subject to market risks which is moderately high, even in Nifty 50 & Nifty next 50 Index funds you may still get losses but there is very low chance for example : the money you invested in in Nifty 50 & Nifty Next 50 growth direct funds will be equally distributed to all shares so there is very low chance that all shares fall immensely, incase nifty 50 & Nifty next 50 shares fall immensely that they won't recover then the nation itself will fall to extreme situation like all banks will get bankrupt, economy and GDP will fall & all people will have no other choice other then to face the situation occured.

Yes, Index Funds are more safer & better then any other mode of investment mode available on stock market, through index funds you can become millionaire by taking full benefit of compounding but to get compounding benefit you need to invest for long term like you have to invest in index funds and forget for atleast 30 years to get profits and become millionaire or billionaire based upon your investment today but index funds are especially for those who insisting to get long term returns so it is not suitable for short terms investors as they won't get compounding benefit which is required for big profits. 

If you are a long term investor & you have patience to wait for atleast 25 to 30 years either for your personal benefit when you are in retirement or for you children or grand children benefit then index funds are for you but you shouldn't disturb and sell shares in middle of decided time frame which is 25 to 30 years to get money, so  kindly only invest minimal amount which you are affording to forget or losse, so that you won't think about it much and yeah as we earlier said only invest 10% of your total capital and always put liquid cash in bank or with yourself for personal usages.
