    Sir, Good Analysis. But Sir, I have tried 50% of this while choosing my Mutual Fund. If possible I would like to see the Article from you on how to sell the Mutual Fund. I think buying is difficult but selling is even more difficult. (I think people should not invest in Mutual Fund to sell them in short term but still there are times when Markets are at all time high and if can take advantage of this and sell some units and book some Profit)

      Yes this is a good point. Simple annual rebalancing a portfolio will take care of this. See my portfolio rebalancing calculator for details.
