The Indian stock markets are witnessing a year that is completely filled with bewilderment. In the beginning of the year, Indian stock markets saw its maximum and then within a few months, as Covid 19 pandemic distended and the Indian economy shut down for the first time in history as did all the economies around the world; it swiftly tumbled down shifting towards its lowest in no time. However, at the moment the stock markets are mounting up once again, making record highs. The objective of this paper is to study the reasons behind the steep fall in the stock markets in India after the Pandemic outbreak, and the factors responsible for the current ascendant trend. We will also study the effect of creeping recession, as the economic activities came to a standstill due to the lockdown in the economy, on the current stock market trends. We conclude that there is always a relationship between the GDP rate and the stock market movements. Also from the analysis it is apparent that in the short run there may be a disconnection between the two, however in the long run there is always a positive correlation between GDP growth and the stock market movement.

Impact of Macroeconomic Variables on Stock Returns: Evidence from Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE)

Publishing India Group

In general, any one known to stock market is acquainted with the phenomenon of bull and bear phases, but whether the traders or investors put air to these phases while making a decision to buy, sell, or stay invested. The present paper attempts to identify and analyse the two most popular market phases, i.e. bull and bear, for better investment decisions with the use of Bry and Boschan Algorithm and time series data. Further, it seeks to analyse the distributional characteristics of the variances in stock returns and search evidence of asymmetries, if any, in volatility under different market conditions which may help to shed light on the bull and bear phases of Indian equity market. The study arrange for evidence that in bull markets, stock prices run far ahead of earnings and for fairly long periods of time. The paper indicates 12 bull and bear phases in the Sensex and Nifty during the sample period of 19 years with the associated factors responsible for the shift of bull and bear market phases. The results provide considerable support for the view that markets choose to ignore adverse possibilities and react with zest to favourable possibilities and market declines can partly be explained by increases in risk.

The movement of stock indices is highly sensitive to the changes in fundamentals of the economy and to the changes in expectations about future prospects. In the decade of 1990s in India, a large number of measures have been taken for economic liberalization. At the same time, vast number of steps has been taken to strengthen the stock market such as opening of the stock markets to international investors, regulatory power of SEBI, trading in derivatives, etc. These measures have resulted in significant improvements in the size and depth of stock markets in India and they are beginning to play their due role. Presently, the movement in stock market in India is viewed and analyzed carefully by large number of global players. Understanding macro dynamics of Indian stock market may be useful for policy makers, traders and investors. In this paper, an attempt has been made to explore the influential relationship between BSE Sensex and selected macroeconomic variables of India by using Regression Analysis Technique. The period of study is April 2003 to March 2013. The results show that changes in Wholesale Price Index (aproxy for Inflation) and Index of Industrial Production has a strong influence on the BSE Index.

On the one hand, the stock market motivates individuals to invest in financial products and preserve money, while on the other, it makes it simple for businesses to obtain long-term funding for capital projects. However, the volatility of the stock market and its connections to economic growth have received less attention in recent economic times, which has a substantial impact on those who invest in it on a large scale. Retail investors have suffered significant wealth losses during times of acute market crashes, and this issue needs to be addressed. This study investigates whether there are long-run and short-run dynamic interactions between stock prices and GDP growth rate, which are robust to structural fractures in the cointegration vector as well as the deterministic vector, using the cointegration test and Granger causality approaches. The study also looks into the direction of causality in the event that a long/short-run correlation is found. If there is a significant correlation between stock prices and these variables and a causal linkage linking macroeconomic variables to stock prices, macroeconomic variable fluctuations can be controlled to prevent stock market crises (specifically, controlling exchange rates and interest rate movements). The government can focus on domestic economic policy to maintain the stock market throughout any financial crisis. The global bank's data for India and the Sensex were used to calculate the study's indices.

A macro-economic perspective to the Indian Stock Market

Dr. Mitesh Patel


Stock market is a vital part of the Indian economy. The stock market plays a crucial role in the growth of the industry and commerce of the country that ultimately affects the economy of the country. Stock market plays important role in mobilizing savings, providing finance to corporate world and so it provides liquidity to the corporate world as well as to investors. The various macroeconomic variables such as GDP, Inflation, Exchange Rate, Gold Price, Unemployment, Interest, Monetary policy, Consumer Price Index, etc. affect to the Stock market. The present study investigated the impact of macroeconomic variables on Indian Stock Market (NSE) to test that whether or not a growth in macroeconomic variables lead to growth in stock market with respect to India. For the purpose of the study, six economic variables are chosen namely GDP, Inflation, Exchange Rate, Gold Price, Unemployment is taken as a measure for stock market performance. The study uses the data for 10 years starting from 2011 to 2020. The data is analyzed by using statistical technique such as descriptive statistics, correlation, regression analysis etc. For the purpose of study, the relationship between stock market price (NSE) as a dependent variable and all macroeconomic factors as independent variables are selected. The study concluded that there is a positive relationship between the NSE and all macroeconomic variables and there is an impact of GDP, Inflation Rate, Gold price and Exchange Rate on NSE, however, there is no impact of Unemployment Rate on NSE.

A Study on Impact of Macro Economic Variables on Indian Stock Markets  (NSE)


The Indian Economic Journal

The role of macroeconomic variables cannot be ignored because it plays a very important role in shaping the economy of any country, irrespective of whether it is developing, underdeveloped or developed. The macroeconomic variables were disposable income (DI), government policies (GP), inflation rate (INF), interest rate (IR), exchange rate (ER) and stock price. Monthly data of 10 years were used, that is, from April 2006 to March 2016. Analyses of augmented Dickey–Fuller test, preliminary tests, stability tests, cointegration, vector error correction model (VECM) variance decomposition analysis (VDA) and impulse response have been applied to examine the association between the selected macroeconomic variable and stock returns. All the variables are stationary at 1st difference. The results showed that the residues are normally distributed and that there is no problem of multicollinearity, heteroskedasticity and serial correlation. The results of the cointegration showed a strong lon...

The prices of shares and other financial assets have constantly had a significant influence in the improvement and advancement of financial activities, and this has turned out to be clear ever. Macroeconomic factors show the prosperity of any economic system and determine the investment future. Macroeconomic factors influence pricing in any economy. Macroeconomic vulnerability influences stock and commodity market, which altogether decides price instability. The securities exchange is a basic stage in the money related arrangement of our nation as it assumes a major role in directing shortage area investment funds to the surplus part. The research examined the impact of certain macroeconomic factors (disposable revenues, interest rates, govt. policies, inflation and exchange rates) on the results of securities market performance in the National and Bombay stock exchanges. Thusly, the causal connection between the securities exchanges returns and chose macroeconomic factors in the NS...

Evaluating the Impact of Macroeconomic Variable on Indian Stock Market

The relationship between stock market and various macroeconomic variables has always been discordant. Studies indicate that stock market is influenced by changes in various macroeconomic variables. Some of which affect the stock market positively while others have an adverse impact. This article examines the impact of five macroeconomic variables i.e. Exchange Rate, Inflation, Interest Rate, Money Supply and Consumer Price Index on BSE S & P index of India. It covers a period of 60 months from October, 2014 to September, 2019. Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) is used to test the Descriptive Statistics, Correlation Matrix and Regression analysis (Goodness of Fit, Variance Inflation Factor, Coefficient of Determination and Durbin – Watson d-Statistic). Analysis results indicate that S & P BSE value has a positive correlation with all independent variables except for Interest Rate; whereas Interest Rate is seen to have a negative correlation with all variables. Money Supp...

Macroeconomic determinants of stock markets: Indian case

Publisher UGC Approved

Aim: Indian stock market has undergone incredible transforms since 1991, when the government has adopted liberalization and globalization policies. As a result, there is an increasing importance of the stock market from collective economy point of view. When we talk about economy then stock market has become a key driver of current market and is one of the major sources of raising resources for Indian company, thus enabling financial and economic growth. In fact, in the world, Indian stock market is one of the emerging markets. The aim of this paper is to examine effect of macroeconomic variables on stock market. because wealth of the any economy is indicated by macroeconomic variables and they decide the future of investments. In any economy price determination process is influenced by the macroeconomic variables. The improbability of macroeconomic variables influences stock and commodity market significantly causing volatility in the prices. Stock Market is an important segment of the financial system of our country as it plays a vital role in channelizing savings from deficit sector to surplus sector.

The objective of the study is to examine possible presence of nonlinear speculative bubbles in the Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE). Bubbles are argued to exist when there are substantial deviations of market value from the estimated fundamental values. We estimate a series of fundamental values from a four variable Vector Autoregression Model (VAR) using the main KSE100 index along with measures of world stock prices, the Pakistani exchange rate, and the Pakistani short-term interest rate. Residuals of this estimated fundamental time series are then tested for possible speculative deviations using a Hamilton regime switching test and a rescaled range Hurst coefficient test, with a further test for nonlinearity beyond the ARCH effects using the BDS statistic. For all of these, we reject the null hypotheses of the absence of speculative bubbles and nonlinearities beyond ARCH in these series. While these results suggest the possible presence of such bubbles, we note methodological limits ...

To carry out changes in the growth of foreign investments has become the striking measure of economic development and is witnessing the changes in the developed countries. Following the path of developed countries, many developing countries are also permitted to inflow foreign capital into the country. India also is not far behind in this, like other developing countries India also permitted foreign investors to invest in India in 1991 under the Foreign exchange Management Act (FEMA). As a result, the inflow of foreign capital into the country is increased and becomes an important source of finance in India for the development of key economic sectors which is experienced through the stock market. But as we have seen that at the time of a downturn in the stock market, the flow of FII and FDI becomes negative which declines the economic activities and causes huge losses for the domestic investors. So the current study is an attempt to find out the behavior of macroeconomic indicators ...

The relationship between stock prices and macroeconomic variables varies across countries, time periods, datasets used, and the frequency of data used. Thus, an in-depth study to reinvestigate the relationship between selected macroeconomic variables i.e. inflation rate, exchange rate, index of industrial production, gold price, money supply and yields on treasury bills, and Indian stock market for the period of April 2005 to March 2014 has been carried out. In this study Johansen's cointegration test, vector error correction model (VECM), impulse response functions (IRFs), and variance decomposition (VDCs) test have been applied. The results of Johansen cointegration test indicates a significant negative relationship between exchange rate, inflation rate, and index of industrial production with stock prices whereas there exists a significantly positive relationship of money supply and yield on treasury bills with stock prices. Vector error correction model helps to determine both short and long run causal relationship between macroeconomic variables and stock price. The results found short run causality runs from exchange rate to Nifty, Nifty to money supply, and inflation rate whereas long run causality found from Nifty to short term interest rate and money supply.

The present study has been focused on the economic factors impact on the market volatility. The study has considered the NSE India base index – Nifty from the period of 2009-10 to 2019-20. The study examined the impact of select economic factors on the Nifty volatility with the help of statistical method of ARCH model. The study result indicates that the GDP influence has been found higher compared with the IIP and Inflation on the Nifty volatility. The study examined the future movement of the economic factors, which are having the significant influence on the nifty volatility with the help of ARIMA. The study result reveals that the IIP will change constantly but inflation will be expected to go downwards in the coming future. This paper will be useful to the Equity Market Investors, Fund Managers, Regulators, Government stakeholders and Academic researchers.

In any economy, changes in inflation rate influence almost all economic activities directly or indirectly. In the economic theory, it is understood that low and stable inflation is desired as a key objective of economic policy. On the contrary, high inflation is widely believed to hold back economic growth and is contrary to social justice. Thus the relationship between inflation and economic growth and relationship between inflation and corporate performances has been an interesting issue for the researchers. There is also relation between corporate fundamentals and stock prices. In this context, the intention of this study is to investigate the impact of the inflation rate on stock market in India during the period 1993 to 2013. The Johansen’s cointegration test suggests that there exist significant negative long-run co-movement between the rate of inflation and stock prices in India. The result of vector error correction model indicates that in short-run the inflation rate negatively affects the Indian stock market, and, the Granger Causality test reveals that the inflation rate causes the stock market movement in India. The variance decomposition analysis reveals that both the Indian stock markets are strongly exogenous in the sense that shocks to inflation rate explain only a small portion of the forecast variance error of the market indices. Finally, from the impulse response function analysis it is noticed that a positive shock on inflation rate has a negative and persistent effect on Indian stock markets.

2016, Islam, K. U., & Habib, M. (2016). Do macroeconomic variables impact the Indian stock market. Journal of Commerce & Accounting Research, 5(3), 10-17.

This paper is intended to study the impact of various macroeconomic variables on Indian stock market. Based on the Arbitrage Pricing Theory (APT) propounded by Ross in 1976 and various other studies, a number of macroeconomic variables including, inflation, industrial production, exchange rate, money supply, interest rate, and oil price have been identified to have a significant impact on the stock market. We have applied the multivariate extension of the classical linear regression model computed on Ordinary Least Squares method and Granger Causality test to re-establish the relationship between macroeconomic variables and stock returns over a period of 10 years from 2005 to 2015 using monthly observations. The results of this study show that only exchange rate has a significant negative impact on stock returns. The other macroeconomic variables are not significantly affecting stock returns; however, their impact is in accordance with the economic theory. The Granger Causality test reveals absence of any causal relationship between stock returns and macroeconomic variables, except in case of oil prices, where we find a unidirectional causal relationship running from stock returns to oil prices. However, the Granger Causality results should not be taken in the conventional meaning of causality, but results merely identifying precedence

Agarwal, Harshit (2020) Investigating Indian stock market behaviour: topics on the effects of macroeconomic factors, political environment and corruption . (unpublished MPhil dissertation), University of Portsmouth, Portsmouth

The factors to which stock market reacts are many, such as economic, political and socio-cultural. In the Indian context, we identified three major factors on which further examination was necessary. These factors were economic, political and corruption.

The commerce and industry of an economy are affected by its stock market to a boundless extent and in determination of the performance of the stock market economic environment plays a crucial role. A large number of studies till date have evaluated the impact of macroeconomic factors on the stock market performance. The findings were found to be highly sensitive to the selection of period. Economic liberalisation of 1991 was the event which transformed the Indian stock market forever. But we found no study which tried to evaluate the impact of economic liberalisation on the stock market performance by evaluating the connection between macroeconomic factors and stock market performance in different phases after the economic liberalisation. This study took three different periods after 1991 and evaluated the link between domestic macroeconomic factors and stock market. These three different periods were also necessary to be studied because in all three of them the stock market of India behaved very differently. In this phase analysis, money supply and foreign institutional investments were found to be connected with the stock market in the long-run and short-run link of the stock market was found with industrial production, exchange rate, inflation rate, interest rate, crude oil prices and gold prices. Further to the phase analysis, the impact of macroeconomic factors were studied on the sectoral stock returns in India. We found no study which tried to evaluate the impact of macroeconomic factors on the sectoral stock returns of India and this part of the study was the stepping stone in this area in the context of India. Unlike the findings of other countries, in the Indian context we found similar macroeconomic factors affecting the stock returns of most of the sectors in the long-run and the short-run. Different macroeconomic factors affect the stock returns of different sectors differently according to the peculiar features of the sectors, this hypothesis was rejected to a large extent in the context of India. In this globalised world where economies and financial markets are all interconnected with each other, the macroeconomic factors of other countries are also expected to affect the domestic stock market. The studies which tried to evaluate the impact of macroeconomic factors of other countries on the Indian stock market were largely concentrated on evaluating the role of US economic factors only. This study took the economic factors of neighbouring economies, major oil exporting economies and major economies of the world and evaluated the impact of their macroeconomic factors on the stock market returns of India. The macroeconomic factors of the US and Pakistan were found to be most connected with the stock market returns of India. Moreover, as compared to the global macroeconomic factors, domestic macroeconomic factors were found to be more influential in affecting the stock market returns of India.

The actions and policies of the government play an important role in determination of the performance of the economy and the financial markets. Thus, the political environment is expected to make a significant impact on the performance of the stock market. In the context of India, the studies done in this area were largely concentrated on analysing the impact of political favouritism on the stock returns and examining the behaviour of the stock market during election times. This study evaluated on the stock market performance the impact of governments of different political parties at the centre and at the states, the impact of domestic and global political events and the impact of domestic political environment. As compared to the governments of Congress and other parties, the governments of Bhartiya Janta Party, the right-wing party of the country found to be more beneficial for the performance of the stock market of the country. The domestic events that escalated the potential of tensions with Pakistan made a bad impact on the stock market and the domestic events of elections and government changes were highly significant in affecting the stock market returns. The domestic events of major decisions taken by the government and establishment failed to show significant impact on the stock market of India. The international events concerned with terrorism, violence and civil unrest made a negative impact and the international events concerned with major financial decisions were found to be highly significant in affecting the stock market of India. Further, improved domestic political conditions were found to be helpful for improvement in the performance of the stock market. There is widespread corruption in India, all the economic activities of the country are said to be affected by corruption and it is said to be a major deterrent for the economic growth of India. Many studies are there which studied the impact of corruption on the performance of the economy in India but no study evaluated the impact of corruption on the performance of the financial markets in India. Increase in domestic corruption levels and the news of major corruption scandals left a bad impact on the performance of the stock market.

Dissertation Topics in Finance- MBA, Banking, Accounting Projects-04 (1)

Also known as the study of investments, Finance is a combination of two interrelated subjects – how money is handled and the process of obtaining money. One of the reasons why postgraduate students struggle with their Finance dissertation topics is that they do not spend enough time planning it. It is important for students to be extremely careful while writing a finance dissertation as it contributes a lot to their respective degrees. This blog provides you with the best topics, a dissertation structure, and more. 

This Blog Includes:

What is a finance dissertation, why finance dissertation topics are important, tips to find excellent dissertation topics on finance, writing tips for finance dissertation, how to plan your work on a finance dissertation, how to structure a finance dissertation, finance dissertation general topics , topics related to india, mba dissertation topics, banking dissertation topics , accounting dissertation topics, research project example, final consideration and conclusion.

Finance dissertations, as the name implies, are pieces of writing that study a certain finance topic chosen by the student. The subjects covered include anything from the stock market to banking and risk management to healthcare finance. This dissertation gives the student academic self-assurance and personal happiness in the subject of finance. Finance writing necessitates substantial research in order to produce a compelling report.

The majority of students have no idea why finance dissertation themes are so crucial. However, put yourself in the shoes of your lecturer. You’ve already read hundreds of theses. The majority of them covered the same ground — issues that you’re already tired of hearing about. Then there’s a topic with a distinct, intriguing theme. Something that piques your interest and entices you to read more. Wouldn’t you give those pupils some extra credit? You’d do it! This is why there are so many fantastic finance dissertation topics. You can get extra points for your efforts. The topic of your paper might mean the difference between a good and a terrific grade.

It’s difficult to come up with anything unique and interesting. There are, nevertheless, ways to come up with interesting ideas. Here are a few pointers on how to locate them:

  • Read a fantastic finance dissertation and find for areas where further study is needed.
  • Go to the library and read a couple theses to get some ideas.
  • Inquire with a writing agency about some ideas from one of their professional dissertation writers.
  • In writing forums and blogs, ask for assistance. If you ask gently, people will give you some excellent suggestions.
  • Look for ideas on the internet, but don’t use them exactly as they are. Make them distinctive by changing them.
  • Talk to other students who are working on their dissertations and find out what other ideas they had before settling on the present topic.
  • Narrow down your topic : Your financial topic should be narrowed down to a certain niche. It should concentrate on a single area, such as microfinance, microfinance, or online banking.
  • Verify your facts: Finance is a topic that requires a great deal of logical analysis of statistical data. As a result, double-check facts and statistics using credible sources before using them in your paper.
  • Write concisely: You should condense a financial paper into a tight, succinct work, unlike other papers with extended narrative narratives. At this length, the adage of ‘short is sweet’ theoretically applies.
  • Arrange your data neatly: A report that is crammed with numbers and graphs may turn off a reader at first glance. Know how and when to utilise your data for a great financial thesis.
  • Write simply: Avoid using jargon that might be confusing to a non-technical reader. When technical terminology are required, utilise accessible examples to convey them. In a finance dissertation, simplicity is king. So make good use of it.

Dissertation submission is very important to obtain a PG Degree. You are supposed to submit the work by the end of your study course, so by the last year of your degree, you may have got enough ideas and problems dealing with finance. While starting with a finance dissertation topic you should always remember that the purpose of a Finance Dissertation is to demonstrate your research ability, how you analyze specific data and come up with a conclusion. Mentioned below is a step to step guide for you to start working with:

Step 1 : Choose a relevant and interesting topic for your research

Step 2 : Discuss and receive feedback from your supervisor

Step 3 : Finalise the research methods to prove the significance of the selected topic

Step 4 : Gather the required data from relevant sources

Step 5 : Conduct the research and analyse the acquired results

Before giving away a list of finance dissertation topics examples, let me give you a brief overview of what is finance.

Finance can be described as the study of investments. It is a combination of two interrelated activities - how money is handled and the process of obtaining the funds required. In a brief way, you can call it the science of money management. To operate smoothly, individuals, companies, and the government units are needed to have funds. To acquire that fund, the financial institution estimates the price of assets based on risk level involved along with the expected rate of return.
