hi

It is a very simple exercise where every stock has a certain weightage in the the index which consit of 30 key stocks updated from time to time by BSE.

Sensex in nothing but the average weighted movemnt of these stocks. Say e.g tata steel has 10% weighatge in the index and overall growth in tata steel is 5% in particular day , so tata stell contribution will be 10*1.05, and so on so forth all calculation will be done and final average increase or decrease will be done.

Default sensex calculation made easy..........

Hi,

Its just easy calculation.....

Todays Market Cap/ Yeterdays Market Cap = Something and this something* yesterdays sensex, u will get todays sensex.

The reply which was sent by the guy is also correct, its nothing:

Tata - 57685748 (Market Cap)
Reliance - Market CAP
sbi - market cap

and so on just u will be having market caps of 50 companies and then total of the market caps of 50 companies. When u divide the company market cap by total cap then u will be getting, the individual weightage of the company in the sensex.

Default all about Sensex

Bombay Stock Exchange Limited is the oldest stock exchange in Asia with a rich heritage. Popularly known as "BSE", it was established as "The Native Share & Stock Brokers Association" in 1875. It is the first stock exchange in the country to obtain permanent recognition in 1956 from the Government of India under the Securities Contracts (Regulation) Act, 1956.The Exchange's pivotal and pre-eminent role in the development of the Indian capital market is widely recognized and its index, SENSEX, is tracked worldwide. Earlier an Association of Persons (AOP), the Exchange is now a demutualised and corporatised entity incorporated under the provisions of the Companies Act, 1956, pursuant to the BSE(Corporatisation and Demutualisation) Scheme, 2005 notified by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI).
The BSE Sensex or Bombay Stock Exchange Sensitive Index is a value-weighted index composed of over 4000 stocks with the base April 1979 = 100. It consists of the 30 largest and most actively traded stocks, representative of various sectors, on the Bombay Stock Exchange. These companies account for around one-fifth of the market capitalization of the BSE.
The base value of the Sensex is 100 on April 1, 1979 and the base year of BSE-SENSEX is 1978-79.
At irregular intervals, the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) authorities review and modify its composition to make sure it reflects current market conditions.
The abbreviated form "Sensex" was coined by Deepak Mohoni around 1990 while writing market analysis columns for some of the business newspapers and magazines. It gained popularity over the next year or two.
The stock market has grown by over ten times from June 1990 to today. Using information from April 1979 onwards, the long-run rate of return on the BSE Sensex can be estimated to be 0.52% per week (continuously compounded) with a standard deviation of 3.67%. This translates to 27% per annum, which translates to roughly 18% per annum after compensating for inflation.
