Market This Week

The market is below 10,000, yes you a heard it right. There was huge selling seen in this week especially in mid cap and small cap companies because of SEBI order on 331 shell companies and banned it for trading since 8th August. Shell company is a company which has no fundamentals present and its used for money laundering purpose. SEBI has not given a procedure for how it has picked up as shell companies because some of the companies have fundamentals and they are presenting regular numbers and filling necessary document to exchange.

As a result, it was down from 10% to 50% in one week like Cigniti Technologies and Prakash Steelage.

Key Market Drivers

Rising geopolitical tension in the USA and North Korea has created a fuss in the international market, if war situation arises in future then its effect would be catastrophic and the whole world market would be in trouble.

BSE and NSE are going to investigate 331 companies fundamentals and reply to SEBI on 15th August.
