    Factors affecting NIFTY 100

    Stock markets, as we know, are susceptible to a variety of factors, ranging from complex issues like country’s economic performance and its GDP, to politics, people psychology, the performance of industries, interest rates, et cetera. Furthermore, these determinants can either be of paramount significance or just an one-time occurance.

    This is one of the reasons why stock market indices serve as an important benchmark when it comes to judging a country’s economic health - they factor in all the significant developments.

    In India, SENSEX and NIFTY are two of the most important indices. Some of the factors affecting these are:   

    • Stability of the Government - Changes in government policies and personnel have led to changes in NIFTY 100 over the years. Similarly, the budget and election results are also known to have an impact on NIFTY.     

    • Index of Industrial Production (IIP) - This index is a representation of the growth of various sectors of Indian economy.   

    • RBI interest rates and repo rates - A change in interest rates is linked to inflation and in India, the decision is taken by the Reserve Bank of India.     

    • International markets performance - Developments around the world and the corresponding performance of international markets can impact NIFTY, since the markets are correlated.

    • Inflation - As stated earlier, interest rates are primarily decided by inflation data, and they have a direct impact on the economic growth of the country. If the inflation is high, then the banks will be compelled to increase the interest rates to control this. This will, in turn, lead the investors to park their money with the bank instead of stocks.

    • Gold prices - Returns on gold may not be as lucrative as equities, but it is still a considerably safer investment. Furthermore, it serves as a hedge against inflation which is why, many investors have gold as a part of their diversified portfolio. An increase in price of gold is perceived as a sign of bear market since it implies that people are reluctant to park their funds in equities and stocks.   

    • Gross Domestic Product - Gross Domestic Product, also known as GDP, is a clear indicator of the growth and performance of the country’s economy. A better GDP will boost investor confidence and lead them to invest in the markets.   

    Apart from these, there are other factors that determine the performance of NIFTY like fuel price volatility, upgrade/downgrade in ratings, recession/economic boom, et cetera.
