The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on December 5 kept the repo rate, its key lending rate, unchanged at 6.5 percent, but left the door ajar for reducing loan rates in the coming months if low inflation rates were to persist long enough.
The central bank also sounded bullish about the prospects in the real sector, retaining its 2018-19 GDP growth forecast at 7.4 percent amid strong investment revival signs. RBI governor has cleared his intentions of cutting SLR in upcoming policies. This will help to increase liquidity in the market. Increased liquidity will allow banks to lend more and investors will start investing in the Indian economy.
As compared to last major correction of 2008, this correction was steady. The reason behind this is DIIs continuous inflow of investment. Though FIIs are net sellers in last one year, DIIs kept the market on a surviving side.

Broader Index & Global Market:
The S&P 500 and Dow industrials ended slightly negative but well above their session lows in volatile trading on Thursday as the arrest of a Chinese technology executive fanned fears of US-China tensions over trade, while some beaten-up big technology and internet shares posted gains.
Following a rare midweek US trading holiday, stocks tumbled at the outset of the trading, with the benchmark S&P 500 dropping as much as 2.9 percent. But from midday stocks began paring their losses and the tech-heavy Nasdaq ended in positive territory. Asian stocks fell on Wednesday, dragged by Wall Street's tumble as sharp declines in long-term US Treasury yields and resurgent trade concerns stoked investor worries about global economic growth.
Global equities have been shaken as a flattening US Treasury yield curve - a result of a steep fall in longer-dated yields - fanned recession jitters and as US-China trade conflict woes resurfaced after a temporary lull. Signals from the Federal Reserve last week that it may be nearing an end to its three-year rate hike cycle has pushed the 10-year US Treasury to yield to three-month lows below 3 percent.
