Focused Story of the Week: Problems with Indian market in recent times
You might be wondering why Indian Markets are slipping, despite performing way better than global markets in the past. Let’s dive deep into the major reasons behind this recent swing downtrend.
Retail Traders losing interest in Stock Markets
According to NSE data in the cash market, the turnover was at
- ₹10,20,626 crore – Jan ’23
- ₹11,60,846 crore – Dec’22
- ₹12,01,108 crore – Nov’22
There is a steady fall.
Even Nithin Kamath said “they have already seen an almost 50% fall in monthly new account openings from January this year and this trend has been similar across the industry.”
Retail Trading activity data
FII selling heavily
For the first time ever Sensex and Nifty ended up in red for 9 days.
In fact, from (1st Jan 2023 – 7th March 2023) FIIs have sold Rs 39241 Cr which is very high as it’s just been 2 months.
Moreover, FIIs control the Indian Market!
The blue line in the graph represents Nifty and the maroon bars in the graph represents FII activity.
You will observe a very strong correlation. When FIIs sell , the Nifty line declines steeply and when the FIIs start buying, the nifty starts advancing.
Indian Markets are OVERVALUED !
Emerging Markets is trading at 10 times. Indian Markets is trading at 21 times.

Similarly, the increase in vehicle sales may present good short term buying opportunities and warrant a Quarterly Fundamental Analysis of the automobile manufacturing sector.
