Weakness in the overall stock market, by itself, is never a good reason to sell your stocks.
There are myriad reasons why a stock's price falls and it is up to you as a stock investor to determine the cause. By identifying why the price is falling, you are far better equipped to decide if it is time to sell your stock position or if the fall in value presents an opportunity to purchase additional shares of a stock. The key is neither to react every time a stock you own dips, nor to become so emotionally attached to an investment that you stay with it no matter what the news.
 As a long-term investor, you should be aware of any cyclical behavior in a stock's industry before you buy the stock, and you should be prepared to hold the stock through the upward as well as the downward portions
Trying to make your own luck by timing the market is unlikely to work, and letting yourself get excessively swayed by the ups and downs of the headlines is certain to fail.

 Markets rise and fall, but history has shown that over the long term a well-diversified portfolio of stocks will not only generate a positive return, but also provide the best opportunity for providing a return above the rate of inflation. It is important to keep your investment horizon in mind—long-term investors should not be deterred by short-term declines. In stock investing there are a few universal truths. One of them is that at some point, a stock's price will fall.

during uncertain tyms people should pick few shares n pick them routinely. I have chosen that tactic with SAMP. I started buying this 2yrs back 210-220 level but suddenly it crashed to 160level due to gold issue. Even at that tym I didn't sell, I routinely picked SAMP at 180, 170 n lowest I picked was 163. Nw it rebounded to 260 level.

As   Asoka  Samarakone  says timing the market  is not  an  easy  exercise  in  an  overall  weakness  of  the  market    the best  strategy  is to  avoid  trading  till  the  market  stabilises  the  losers  would  be  the  brokers  and  not  anyone  else.

Thank you all. So why most of them selling at low level now and they didn't sell it before the market down ?

Keep the basic rule in stock market investment as "Never Sell at a lost" That rule is stupid.

sometimes it's better to cut your losses and press the restart button.

With the passage of time, learning curve of local investors gradually develop. Many not yet well exposed how to face panicked situations. It could be one of factors like simple manipulation.

Moreover, understanding of day to day global events that affect economies across the globe is important.

jayathu, all depend on which shares you buy and what is your holding power. 

If you are in to real value stocks with long term investment strategy you don't need to worry about short term fluctuations. But if you are in to penny stocks with trading mindset then obviously you have to cut losses at this kind of situation.

I'm really happy that I didn't sell a single share during this down trend, instead bought some to make my average down.

I will put some more money to get the maximum use of this opportunity.

Very Good decision... We see, This ''Market Crisis'' is a consecutive one. So...
If we have 1 million, we must divide it as 2 or 3 equal portions & use one portion to buy some Good stocks in a discounted price. Tomorrow may be a very discounted priced day. The Day after Tomorrow may be more good than Tomorrow.... In this way we can get more Discounts.
