Share Market: In 2022, Sensex saw a lot of ups and downs. Indian stock markets amid pressure on the global economy to accelerate energy prices and the strict monetary policies of central banks around the world, in addition to geopolitical turmoil in 2022 Faced these crises far better than other markets. The unwavering confidence of domestic investors kept Dalal Street largely untouched by the global pickup and the Indian market standard index faced disappointing signs with confidence.
Sensex caught speed
After a slowdown for most of the year, Sensex started gaining momentum in the festive season and it closed its all-time high at 63,284.19 on December 1. However, the expectation of a boom at the end of the year began to tarnish at that time, When the case of Kovid infection in China re-increased, another wave of global epidemics began to deepen.
Sensex is up ( 25 percent as of December ) just 1.12 percent on an annual basis, but it is still the world’s best-performing large market index. In fact no major global index could gain an edge this year. This includes Dow Jones ( 2022 down 9.24 percent so far ), FTSE 100 ( 0.43 percent down ), Nikkei ( 10.47 percent down ), Hang Seng ( 15.82 percent below ) and Shanghai Composite Index ( 16.15 percent below ).
Withdrawal from equity market
Much of this credit goes to domestic retail and institutional investors, Who maintained confidence in the market despite negative headlines and ended the impact of record selling through foreign funds. Foreign institutional investors ( FII ) have extracted a record 1.21 lakh crore from Indian equity markets so far in 2022. In contrast, domestic investors shopped every fall.
On March 31, 2022, retail investors’ share in firms listed on the NSE reached an all-time high of 7.42 percent. During this time mutual fund investment through SIP schemes is also increasing, touching a record high of Rs ( Equity and Debt segment ) 13,306 crore in November.
Motilal Oswal Head of Financial Services ( Retail Research ) Siddharth Khemka said, “GST collection remained above Rs 1.4 lakh crore for the eighth consecutive month in November, While the e-way bill has remained above the number of seven crores since March 2022. Other economic indicators like GDP and PMI have also improved after the epidemic.” He said that behind the better performance of India, there is also a contribution of increase in capital expenditure by the central government with strong corporate income.
