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.
