On 26th Dec’16, Nifty made a low of 7894 on expectation of adverse impact of demonetization, which was announced on 8th Nov’16 , where BJP Government banned old 500 and 1000 Indian currency notes. Initially it was expected that it will hurt trade and commerce in India, as most of the transactions are done in cash, but afterwards it was understood that it was a good way to flush out black money from the system and that it will have a positive impact on trade and commerce. Today Indian benchmark Nifty is standing near its all time high of 9218, which is almost up by 17% from its recent low of 7894. Bank Nifty made a low of 17607 on 26th Dec’16 and has made record high of 21336, rallied 21% from its low. BJP Government’s euphoric win in UP elections has added fuel to the positive sentiment in the Indian stock market.
