Though Sensex is made up of just an arbitrary of number that determines the performance of the market, it has a lot of meaning behind it. It gives a clue of the market sentiment which ambiguously states whether individuals are confident or otherwise of the future of the market. Sensex or the indication of the mood in the stock market can rise means the level of people’s optimism which can bring investment, at both the domestic and international levels. But the decrease in the Sensex means people may take caution.

Factors Influencing the Sensex

Generally, the Sensex is not the only index that covers all the sectors such as Participants Encompassing the International as well as the Domestic Economic Space, which these players take part in. The economic climate, corporate earnings, government policies, geopolitical conflicts, and global predictability of the market as a whole are responsible for the index performance. They have cited instances of the economy outperforming expectations, investors increasing the stakes by acquiring the shares of corporations, and if the policies are directed towards investors then the Sensex will point to perks which will be a positive step, otherwise adverse situations or geopolitical findings will bring adverse trends in this arena.

The Sensex in action

Other than economic impacts, the dispossession of their lands and the displacement from their natural habitats, traditional communities have expended efforts against the reckless extraction of oil and gas from their territories, and the neglect of important ecosystems.

Gone are the days when the market movements of the Sensex were only restricted in the trading room and its consequence was seldom felt beyond the trading room. Today, it is not merely the movements in the Sensex that echo from the trading room. It’s also the case for all those stakeholders that are affected by this market movement. Investors are looking at the index at all times, bad or good, to make good actions with their portfolios. Policymakers apply it as an evaluation criterion to evaluate the rates of success in economic policies and reveal the necessary options for changing strategies. While on the other hand, all the newspapers and magazines in common mention changes in the Indian stock market.
