Ruchir Sharma:What is driving Indian markets?

Also keep in mind that for the last few months I agree with you that Indian politics has played a dominant role in driving this market but there are many other factors at work which have driven the Indian market over time.

One very significant factor has obviously been the state of global risk appetite and of global liquidity and I think that here there is something more concerning in fact at this stage because I know that in India we have been very much lost to the domestic political scene.

Let us not forget that the Indian market over a period of time is still extremely linked to what happens globally, never before in the history of markets have markets been so high five years after recession ended. So, you have asset price inflation across the world and some of that asset price inflation has also helped India and Indian equities do well over the last five years. I agree that lot of the factors have been domestic but some of the asset price inflation has also played a role in lifting assets to a level which is somewhat disconnected from underlying economic reality. That is one big factor we have to keep in mind.-said Ruchir Sharma
