Stock Investors lose over Rs. 7 lakh crore in today's Sensex crashes 1645 Points Down!!!
Sensex crashed over 1,645 points, biggest in over seven years, while more than Rs 7 lakh crore of investors' wealth got wiped out.
The overall investors' wealth was lower nearly Rs 7 lakh crore as it crashed below Rs 100-lakh crore mark.
Report says that the loss suffered by the 10 biggest companies in terms of market capitalisation was close to Rs. 2 lakh crore.
As the stock market saw a bloodbath, the investor wealth today crashed by over Rs 7 lakh crore or Rs 7 trillion in the biggest ever single-day loss, as a global rout caused jitters across the board.
Crashing below Rs 100 lakh crore mark, the total investor wealth measured in terms of cumulative valuation of all listed stocks, stood at Rs 95,28,536 crore or Rs 95 trillion at the end of the day.
Though notional in nature, just top-20 companies accounted for more than 5 lakh crore or Rs 5 trillion of losses.
Among investor classes, the promoters' share was more than 50 per cent at about Rs 4 lakh crore or Rs 4 trillion, while FIIs are estimated to have taken a hit of close to Rs 1.5 lakh crore or Rs 1.5 trillionon their portfolios.
The loss in the accounts of retail investors is estimated at about Rs 75,000 crore, while institutional investors also took a hit of about Rs 1 lakh crore or Rs one trillion.
The benchmark sensitive index Sensex today crashed by 1,624.51 points as rout in Chinese stocks triggered a global sell-off. When the total market valuation of all listed firms at the BSE first hit Rs 100 trillion on November 28, 2014, it had marked ten-times rise in little over a decade.
BSE is among the world's ten largest exchanges in terms of market value, while it is the largest globally for number of firms listed on its platform.
It has over 4,000 actively traded companies and nearly 2.7 crore investors trading on it.
The total market cap is still nearly double the level of about Rs 50 lakh crore or Rs 50 trillion in 2009, while it is still about ten-times of the Rs 10 lakh crore or Rs 10 trillion level scaled in 2003.
Stock markets crashed over 1,700 points or nearly 5 per cent on Monday, making it the biggest fall since 2008.
This level of slump at the bourses is in tandem with Asian markets that are also trading under pressure, tracking the meltdown in global equity markets on fears of a china-led economic slowdown.
Not only this, there are five main reasons for this kind of freefall at Dalal Street.
China slowdown has an impact
Despite the government taking several steps to stabilise the economy, the yuan has fallen drastically in the past few days.
Global equities markets have seen more than $5 trillion wiped off their value since China's shock devaluation of the Yuan on August 11 which sparked fears the world's second-largest economy is weaker than thought, says a Reuters report.
Greece concerns, a worry
Greece's president has given a go-ahead to the opposition to form a new government after Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras resigned recently, but the country appears almost certain for an election next month which may disrupt the country’s bailout package by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
There are chances that Greece may have to exit from the euro-zone.
Wall Street concerns
US markets ended sharply lower on Friday after growth in the US manufacturing sector slowed unexpectedly to its weakest pace in almost two years in August.
The preliminary US Manufacturing PMI fell to 52.9 in August, its lowest since October 2013.
Rupee posted its steepest fall in four years
The rupee tumbled to over 2-year low at 65.31 against the dollar early last week.
Since then, the rupee has recovered marginally but currency watchers don't see it recovering so soon.
Foreign institutional investors have withdrawn Rs 5,700 crore or Rs 57 billion from the Indian markets on fears that rupee may slide further.
"Indian stock markets are witnessing contagion effect of caution in global markets on a suspected China slowdown."
While Indian markets have remained resilient and outperformed regional peers thanks to India's better macro performance over the last two years the overhang of a global risk-off could see capital outflows leading to an excaberated correction in the markets.
"We continue to expect Indian markets to remain an outperformer among emerging markets," said Tirthankar Patnaik, India strategist, Mizuho Bank
“Panic has spread to Indian equities too on the back of global rout driven by Chinese actions. During this wave of selling, we may see a lot of investment opportunities from a medium to long term perspective in Indian equities, which is what we are currently focusing on. We currently hold some cash in our portfolios, and will be looking to invest that into equities as the market becomes more attractive with every decline.”, said Harsha Upadhyaya, Chief Investment Officer (Equity), Kotak Mahindra Asset Management.
Asian shares slumped on Monday as investors dumped riskier assets on fears that economic slowdown in China would have an impact on other economies in the continent.
The benchmark Shanghai Composite plunged 9.2% while Hang Seng ended down 5.4% tracking losses in mainland China.
Shares in Japan also witnessed selling pressure with the Nikkei down 4.8% while the Straits Times eased 3.8%.
European shares also opened sharply lower tracking the sharp plunge in Chinese stocks . The CAC-40, DAX and FTSE-100 trimmed some of the early losses and were down 2.3% each.
The Indian rupee also dropped to fresh two-year low amid fears of foreign capital outflows tracking weakness in domestic equities and was trading at 66.71 down 89 paise to the US dollar compared to it previous close on Friday.
Meanwhile, Reserve Bank of India governor Raghuram Rajan in his speech at FIBAC 2015 today assured the street that the central bank will have no hesitation in using foreign exchange reserves in a bid to reduce volatility.
“We have approximately $ 380 billion in reserves to be used as and when the need arises. We will have no hesitation in using our reserves when appropriate to reduce volatility in the rupee,” he said.
We have already completed three issues and on Monday we will have the fourth one. Although we are more than a month to go from the first half to end, this will be the best ever first half in past seven fiscals," Disinvestment Secretary Aradhana Johri said.
