There can be no investment platform as lucrative as the Indian share market. In the current scenario, investors are not satisfied with the market performance; the same situation has been prevailing several weeks at a stretch. In fact, the year 2011 has not begun well for the Indian share market. Investors and analysts are taken by surprises as the year 2010 witnessed record growth with the BSE sensex crossing the 21,000 mark breaking all past records and the nifty past 6,000 mark. Currently, or to say for two months, the BSE sensex is hovering in between the 18,000 to 19,000 mark and the nifty between the 5,000 to 6,000 mark. It is due to the rising inflation levels, exposure of bribery and scams, weak overseas markets, conflict between the long-term and short-term views of foreign institutional investors, more of selling rather than buying and more that the market is under performing. No wonder the wealth of funds that poured in from FIIs during 2010 did boost the performance of the BSE sensex and nifty and their selling dampened the spirits directly affecting the markets for quite some time.
