Indian Stock Market & Top Blue-Chip Stocks

Indian markets wrapped up the week in the red for a third straight week, weighed by weakness in the rupee and muted global cues. The stock market has been very volatile of late. Experts are of the view that it is the unstability in the Indian currency that is largely to be blamed.

It all depends on the rupee. If one can see rupee really stabilising at these levels, the market has really made a bottom.

If you look at some weeks back, the rupee was 60, Nifty was also at around 6,000 and the dollar index was close to 82.5. Given this, we have a India-specific problem that is the reason the rupee has depreciated whereas the dollar has strengthened. Nifty has corrected because of liquidity related issues. I don't think the correlation continues. I am confident that dollar will appreciate much more than what people are visualizing ... it will depreciate or appreciate more in terms of developed market currencies rather than emerging market currencies."
