Any good site which has historic data for Sensex?
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--><b>India growth story flounders </b>
Vivek Sethi | New Delhi
<b>In the history of the Sensex, maximum pain has been inflicted in this last quarter of financial year 07-08 on investors sentiments. Investors have been bottomed out and started doubting the economic fundamentals. As, the benchmark index has already witnessed six out of the ten largest falls in its history in this last quarter</b>. 

Moreover, the Government is caught between the proverbial "devil and the deep sea". As the mounting inflationary pressure is likely to tie down the RBI from loosening monetary policy, even though the slump in industrial growth would force the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to cut interest rates during 2008-09, to be unveiled in April. And, the pace of economic growth would have taken a severe beating by the time the fiscal stimulus announced in by P Chidambaram in the Union Budget for 2008-2009 would have the desired impact of reviving consumer growth in the domestic market, if at all it does.

Although the global markets witnessed some marginal losses, the Indian markets ended up nursing the deepest cut.

Sensex on the Bombay Stock Exchange tanked over 770 points to close at 15,357.35 points. Marketmen said an onslaught of selling by funds gripped the markets, wherein the FIIs accounted for a net sale of Rs 108.50 crore, aggravated with the fears of recession in the US. The dismal IIP index and the dollar dipping below record low level against the yen since 1995 -- further dampened the market sentiments.

The 30-share Sensex, which commenced the day on a weak note, tumbled by 770.63 points to 15,357.35. The lowest closing recorded since August 31 at 15,318.60 points. The BSE barometer touched the day's low of 15,228.99 and a high of 15,873.28 points.

The wide-based National Stock Exchange index Nifty also dropped by 258.40 points to 4,623.60 as most of the heavyweight stocks led by banking sector yielded significant ground.

Over half a trillion dollars have been wiped off from the wealth of investors in Indian stocks since the beginning of 2008 as an unending turbulence today sent the market to its lowest level in about six-and-a-half months.

The Sensex had risen 6,500 points in 2007 to end at 20,286.99 points. In terms of the market capitalisation also, the loss incurred since the beginning of 2008 accounts for about 60 per cent of the total gain in 2007. The market capitalisation of all the listed companies had increased by Rs 35,45,626 crore in 2007 to end the year at Rs 71,69,985 crore.

Following are the 10 biggest fall witnessed by the benchmark index Sensex in its life-time:

<b>Sensex closes above 16k, posts second biggest gain of 2008</b>

Mumbai, Mar 25 (PTI) The markets finally seemed to be out of woods as the benchmark Sensex posted this year's second biggest gain of more than 928 points to regain the 16k level at close on signs that the worst of the US housing slump might well be over.

The 30-share Sensex on the Bombay Stock Exchange zoomed by 928.09 points, or 6.07 per cent, to settle the day at 16,217.49 over its yesterday's close. The index had slipped to below 16k level on March 13 this year.

The BSE barometer had seen the biggest ever gain of 1,139.92 points on January 25, 2008.

On BSE, it was aggressive buying across-the-board and it was best reflected in the fact that no index-related stocks posted losses and all sectoral indices posted gains. Brokers said this mirrors the all-round optimism and bodes well for the markets.

The 50-issue S&P CNX Nifty of the National Stock Exchange also flared up by 267.65 points, its fifth biggest point-wise gain, or 5.81 per cent, at 4,877.50 over its previous close.

Marketmen said a surprise increase in sales of US pre-owned housing data indicated that the worst of the housing slump might be a thing of past now and it lifted the investor sentiments which led to a rally in the Wall Street yesterday.

Dow Jones industrial average yesterday surged by 187.32 points. The Nasdaq composite index also had added 68.64points.

Most of the Asian markets also ended up in the range of 1.0-6.4 per cent today, while European indices also opened higher by 2.0-3.0 per cent.

Marketmen also added that the news that the JP Morgan raised the open offer for the ailing US investment bank Bear Stearns to USD 10 per share from USD 2 per share also aided in lifting the global indices.
Now we will see great fall soon.
What India is doing destroying small investor. International Hedge funds are having field day in Indian stock exchange, at the end it will finsih lot of indian companies and eventually Indian economy.
India need strong measure.

When it comes to others money, I stay away from any advise. If they gain from advise that is great but if they lose that will make me very miserable. My best policy, stay away from personal financial advise. Take professional help.

Current Indian Stock market trend is not very sound, lot of hidden hands/interest. Very corrupt, this is based on my 17-18 years of observation.
Foreign hedge funds are playing big in Indian stock and will kill Indian growth as they did to Singapore, Brazil, Korea, Thailand in 90s.

I am surprised, why Government is not coming out with restriction and other strong measures? It is mind-boggling. Bear Strean collapsed but before dying they did big damage to Indian market.

Harsh, for a small guy to beat market, it's pretty steep.
Some low risk and common sense approach, if you aren't doing it already would be is to
(a) have automated way of investing small amounts every month in a mutual fund or
(b) invest regularly (every month) in some 'decent' recognizable name stocks and end up dollar-cost-averaging.

The benefits are that you don't have to loose sleep and you are in the market through think-n-thin and in long run you do well.
Challenges with this are
(i) to be disciplined in terms of contributing regularly
(ii) finding some decent basket of stocks/funds (don't shoot for stars or shuffle portfolio too often)
(iii) reducing your monthly transaction fees (see if you can get into a progam with your brokerage or investment club on this)

Disclaimer: Any advice here (financial/investment/legal/business/medical/career related etc etc... on this or any other internet forum) should be taken for what it is; in other words, before spending take professional help.
