What Subsequent for Sensex? 40,000 or 100,000?


That’s not all. Out of the three,844 shares listed on BSE, round 3,000 ended within the purple.

The 2 phrases ‘inventory market’ and ‘BSE Sensex’ out of the blue begin discovering far more frequent point out in on a regular basis conversations when the markets are falling quickly or rising and touching new highs.

Certainly, with the Sensex falling increasingly up to now 5 days, curiosity degree within the inventory market is at present operating excessive.

The large query now on everybody’s thoughts is what lies forward for BSE Sensex?

Will it fall to 40,000 ranges earlier than heading in the direction of 100,000? Or will or not it’s a direct clean journey in the direction of 100,000?

For understanding what our readers are pondering, we ran a ballot on Equitymaster’s Telegram Channel over the weekend.

Right here’s what we requested our readers…

Which assertion do you most agree with?

  • Sensex will fall to 40,000 earlier than heading larger in the direction of 100,000
  • Sensex correction is over. It is going to now head larger in the direction of 100,000
  • Sensex correction is simply beginning. We’ll proceed to go decrease for a long-ish time period

With a response from 594 contributors, here is what we discovered –



About 30% contributors suppose that the BSE Sensex correction is simply beginning and we’ll proceed to go decrease for a protracted time period.

In the meantime, 31% suppose that the Sensex will fall to 40,000 first earlier than heading larger in the direction of 100,000.

Each these statements are reflecting a powerful pessimistic view not less than in the intervening time.

However is the pessimism justified with Sensex already shedding over 3,500 factors up to now 5 days? Certainly.

There are particular explanation why traders are being pessimistic now. 

Buyers typically flip anxious forward of the essential US Federal Reserve assembly end result. And this time round, there are extra causes to fret.

Causes reminiscent of geopolitical tensions within the Russia-Ukraine border, sustained FII outflows and nervousness forward of the upcoming Finances bulletins.

So long as international portfolio traders (FPIs) take out cash from Indian share markets, there will likely be added volatility. 

The Union Finances 2022-23 can be exerting stress as markets have traditionally been unstable with damaging bias within the fortnight previous the presentation of the funds.

Transferring on…

Round 39% persons are of the optimistic view and voted that the Sensex correction is over. They consider the Sensex will now head larger in the direction of 100,000.

This assertion acquired the utmost variety of votes which exhibits that there’s nonetheless optimism.

By the best way, we additionally ran a ballot asking our readers the place the worth of Bitcoin is headed subsequent. In case of Bitcoin, a majority of individuals anticipate a 50% decline. Whereas in shares, there’s divided opinion.

Getting again to our query…

The primary yr of the brand new decade was stellar for Indian equities when the BSE Sensex returned 21%. However as 2022 begins, traders now appear extra fearful than elated.

And they need to be given the above record of considerations we talked about. 

That’s the reason, traders ought to deliver down expectations and suppose from a conservative method that Indian fairness markets might not ship nearly as good returns as they delivered in 2021.

All being stated, Sensex touching 100,000 in the long term is inevitable. (Sounds arduous to consider however then once more, did you suppose the Sensex would scale peaks of 62,000 in simply 19 months after falling as little as 26,000 in March 2020?)


Larger earnings will little question drive Sensex to 100,000 all through time. However how quickly these figures will likely be breached is anyone’s guess. Due to this fact, investing primarily based on Sensex targets could be as dangerous as driving blindfolded!

The Sensex breached the 1,000-mark for the primary time on 25 July 1990. It took only a yr for the index to double. And one other two years to double as soon as once more. Nevertheless, after that it was a protracted 13-year look forward to traders to see their cash multiply. 

That’s the reason, no matter the Sensex milestones, Co-head of Analysis at Equitymaster Tanushree Banerjee believes investing in firms with skill to bounce again from non permanent disaster…such shares might add to your fortune persistently.

Regardless of whether or not Sensex stays at 40,000 or leapfrogs to 100,000 within the subsequent few years, these shares would be the largest winners.
