Indian and American stock markets between December 08 and March 09


Followings are updates to Comparison of Indian and American stock markets. The hub was published on December 12, 2008. Huge water has flown through rivers since those days. I had been periodically updating current data of Indian and American stock markets since then. This data may help you in deciding your investments.

Stock markets are the mirrors of the current economy and business health most of the times. All of us know that Indian economy is rising and the American economy is facing a crisis. Business in both the countries is behaving in the similar pattern

I have chosen Bombay Stock exchange (BSE) Sensex for Indian stock market and Dow Jones for American stock market.

You can view the periodic updates of both Dow Jones and Sensex below.

1. December 18, 2008. 12.58 IST

Dow Jones New York : 8659--Bombay Stock Exchange Sensex: 10076

Sensex is 1417 points higher than Dow Jones (Approximately 16%).

2. February 28, 2009

Indian stock market Dow Jones 7062--Indian stock market Sensex 8891

Indian stock market Sensex is 1829 points higher than American stock market Dow Jones (Approximately 26%).

3. March 27, 2009

Dow Jones 7776--Sensex 10048

Sensex is 2272 points higher than Dow Jones. (Approx 29% higher than Dow)

Dow Jones is continually lagging behind the Sensex. Compare the results between December 18, 2008, and March 27, 2009:

BSE Sensex is at almost same stage 10048 on March 27, 2009, vs 10076 on December 18, 2008 (lost 28 points or just quarter percent).

Dow Jones has fallen from 8659 to 7776 (983 points or about 12 percent) in the same period. This comparison of slightly more than a quarter shows the strength of Indian stock market over the american stock market. BSE Sensex was only 16 percent higher than Dow Jones on December 18, 2009, but it is twenty-nine percent higher on March 27, 2009.

Can we presume that US stock market is reflecting economic crisis and financial problem of America?

Wall street fall, Dow Jones collapse

Stock market of America is lagging behind stock market of India


4. Update on April 22, 2009 (Time 1.15 A.M. IST)

Sensex is at 10817.54 after a fall of consecutive three days

Not a tremendous growth?

5. Update on May 7, 2009.

The difference between stock market of India and stock market of America is 3707.09 or more than 44 percent. On December 18 (From the date updates started) BSE Sensex was only sixteen percent higher than Dow Jones and it is Forty-four percent higher on May 7, 2009.

According to a report from the US, BSE Sensex will reach to 100,000 points by 2025. The report expects amazing growth of Sensex in the next fifteen years.

6. Update July 09, 2009 9.57 PM IST.

Sensex 13757.46--Dow Jones 8188.23

We can see that the difference between two indexes is 5569 points that mean the Sensex is 68 percent higher than the Dow Jones. As we can see Sensex was 44 percent higher on May 7th and it is sixty-eight percent higher than Dow Jones on July, 09. It is gained 24 percent more in comparison to Dow Jones in just two months.

The stock market of India has been continually booming. What about stock market of America?

Big markets that are doing well hopefully point the way to better global economic times(for those countries effected by the Us lead recession, LIKE the US)

lately corporate profits are up but money is still tight in terms of big banks loaning actual small businesses money so they can hire and produce. do you think next months re-employment numbers(for the Us) will be increasing, decreasing or same,same.??

This article is really kind of crazy, but I think everyone has to consider that it's possibly in the cards. This recession will turn into a depression, the US will debase their currency, there will resource wars and civilian uprising around the globe. It's going to make for some interesting times indeed!

I am sorry that I could not update the markets news. However, I will do it soon.

Plunging or going up.... is part of the game. Market behaves like this. This is a normal scenario.

Good comparison. This growth in Sensex might be showing the potential of Indian market, but current Indian market seems to be over-priced and hence a point of concern for short-to-medium term at least for traders.
