Monthly Market update – Oct 2022
The Indian equity indices staged a strong rebound in October with the blue – chip S&P BSE SENSEX rising 5.9% and NIFTY 50 rising 5.4% in October.
Although the bullish sentiment was widespread, smaller companies lagged their larger peers; the S&P BSE SmallCap clocked up a relatively demure 1.3% gain. The rise has been on the back of strong corporate earnings reports and hopes of a less-hawkish stance from major central banks.
Among sectors, Energy and Banking sectors were the best performing sectors, while the FMCG and consumer durables were the two laggards
