It’s been a long journey for the Indian stock market. It has been growing well, generating superior wealth in the ongoing century. The Nifty 500, the broader equity index, has provided a decent CAGR of 13.6% over about 23 years. A one-time investment of ₹1 lakh in December 2000 would have been ₹21 lakh today. From the latest intra high of 17,754.05, dated September 12, it went down by 7.25% on October 26, and on November 3, Nifty 50 closed at 17,000.95, which is 4.25% lower. A short-term break in the long-term growing market.
