    Can we invest in US market oriented Mutual funds now ?

    As there is unertainity in domestic markets and US markets have returned aroud 30-50% in past year, can one consider nvesting in US market related Mutual funds Now ?

    Please clarify….

    1. Shiv, I feel every investor can have part of their portfolio in global / international mutual funds. US Market is satured now and you may not see new peaks in short term. If you still want to invest you can look for Motilal Most shares NASDAQ 100 ETF fund or ICICI Pru bluechip US equity fund
