After bloodbath on Dalal Street, ace investor Vijay Kedia has shared the art on how to overcome this market volatility. While talking to Livemint in an exclusive conversation, the market magnet told that ‘short term crisis is a big time opportunity for long term investors’ as it allows positional investors to buy quality stocks at highly discounted levels.
