World’s Largest Stock Exchanges – India’s stock market now ranks 5th in the world

World’s Largest Stock Exchanges: Largest Stock Exchanges in the World Leaving France behind, India has joined the list of Top 5 Stock Markets in the world. In January of this year, the French stock market had brought India from 5th position to 6th position. But India’s day-by-day growing market has again regained its 5th position. India’s stock market has been showing very good growth since March. The reason for this is that outside investors want to invest their money in India. With this, India’s macroeconomic situation is improving a lot.

Top 5 reasons why India’s stock market is growing rapidly

  • BJP Government: In the recently held state elections, BJP has won in 3 out of 5 states. And those 3 states are Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. Due to the coming of the BJP government, the confidence of the people has increased.
  • Money from outside the country: FII (Foreign Institutional Investors) i.e. investors from outside the country are investing their money in the Indian market on a large scale. Because of that India’s stock market is increasing.
  • US Bond Yield Down : The yield (in simple language, interest) of the bonds available in the US market has gone down. And to get more interest, they invest their money in countries outside that country.
  • Stable Interest Rates : Be it outside market or India, interest rates have been quite stable for some time. Due to this, there is less fluctuation in market activities.
  • Strong Macros : Macros means the economic condition of India is quite good. India’s GDP grew by 7.6% from July to September.
