This can be the moment of truth for investors who have the guts to take a position and profit in the long run,” Bahana TCW head of macroeconomics and director for investment strategy Budi Hikmat said in a note.Read also: To buy it or not: Retail investors are torn amid volatile stock marketThe decline in the local stock market followed a historic market rout in the United States and mixed readings from Asian markets.Wall Street suffered its biggest drop since the crash of 1987 on Monday following unprecedented steps taken by the Federal Reserve, United States lawmakers and the White House to slow the spread and soften the economic blow of the coronavirus.
