Sensex Hits New Record High, Here's Why?


There are a number of positive factors that are playing-off for the markets, even as the Sensex has hit a new record of 62,800 points. Slowing pace of inflation and the possibility of slowing interest rate hikes has helped boost the Indian markets. Apart in the short-term a sharp fall in crude prices has helped boost sentiments. Steady flow into equity mutual funds and returns of Foreign Portfolio Investors has ensured a liquidity propelled boost for the markets.

Sensex Hits New Record High, Here's Why?

Apart from this a gush of liquidity from mutual funds has also propelled the Indian markets higher. According to Ajay Menon, MD & CEO, Broking & Distribution, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd, "For Q2FY23, Nifty companies grew by 9% as compared to expectations of flattish growth. Excluding the global commodities, the growth stood out strong at 33%. Going ahead too we expect the momentum to remain strong with expectation of Nifty earnings CAGR of 17% over next 2 years. The oil prices have corrected by ~15% and fallen to just above $80bbl which is positive for our oil import dependent economy. Even the wholesale and the retail inflation has cooled off and is showing signs of peaking out. Now with Fed's commentary on slowing down the pace of rate hike has given boost to the global sentiments which along with strong domestic fundamentals is proving to be a boom for the Indian equities. At the same time, the festive season this year witnessed a buoyant demand - being the first one without any restrictions post 2 years of covid. The buoyancy in demand is expected to continue with the onset of marriage season. Apart from this the bank credit continues to grow in late teens over last few months and is expected to continue this uptrend with the pickup in capex from H2. India is entering big capex upcycle which would provide leg-up to the overall economy."
