The financial year 2016 has ended. It is time to look back on this eventful year. There have been many events that affected the financial markets and the economy in India. On September 8, the Nifty Index closed at the highest position of the year (8952.50), after the index made lower highs. Mid November 2016 positive returns in the Nifty Index evaporated completely. Finally, the index managed to obtain a positive return of 3% in rupee and 3.4% in euro.
For 2016 foreign institutional investors were net sellers, while domestic parties have pumped more than Ä 4.6 billion into the market. Sales by foreign parties are rather a global phenomenon, given the appreciation of the dollar against other currencies. A major reason to operate on the sell side was the choice of the British people to leave the European Union. The euro strengthened against the dollar due to this decision. In addition, the election of Trump as the new president of the United States gave an additional boost to the dollar. This appreciation of the green back was at the expense of many emerging markets. In 2016, the rupee weakened by 2.6% against the dollar, 1.9% weakening occurred after Trumpís election.
Some important developments that may affect the direction of the markets in 2017 are related both domestically and abroad. Some domestic developments are the demonetarizing of the rupee (hunting of black money) the impact on operating results, the National Budget from 2017 to 2018 and the introduction of the GST (General Service Tax). Major foreign developments that have already been put in motion in 2016 are: a stronger dollar and the notice of the Fed to raise interest rates not twice, but three times in 2017. The degree of a rate increase will have an impact on India. In addition, monetary and political events in Europe will be important. In several European countries (in particular Germany) there will be general elections. Furthermore, oil prices always affect the household budget of India because of its oil imports. The current level of $ 52 gives no problems of any kind. Finally, Trump announced to create trade barriers. This will affect India, but to a limited extent. Exports to the US is only 16%, while 42% goes to developed economies ex-US and 40% to other emerging countries. On balance, India can develop its economic and financial area more positive and threats can be seen as opportunities.
