All my Earnings of Last Year Perished in 2 days

Thats sad... I think you need to go back to basics of investing in stock markets.

Anyaways, I think you should not sell at this point and hold whatever you have. take a long term perspective and you may get all your money back and even may earn decent profits on it.
Long term is always good and most of the analyst give this condolence without even knowing what you baught and what levels you baught.

In rarest case if you baught all your socks when market was at 21K and every thing at top peak then it will take long time in that case say index should reach 30 K atleast. It might happen in year 2011 as of today but in long run their is risk even to the fundamentals.

My advice would be reevaluate your portfolio and do your own research to identify scripts to hold and also put time frame. If you have bad script you can exit it later when market gives better value.

so stick to fundamentals of investing.
after all its more of risk management and asset allocation.
but you call your self trader then you must have different approach and learn from your mistakes quickly. being at traderji atleast you should be on cash as it was alerted on this forum about the fall.

I lost 1 lakh value to my portfolio during this fall and hope it will be leveled soon. Hope the market rise fast.
Or I need to put few more lakhs to average out .
mr aksoni,
iam feel very sorry for you. now you dont trade in this volatile market. and dont sell the share that gone already down. be patient.
