It is the investors' world and many industry honchos, be it in India or at the global level, are more or less dependent on shares. The ultimate source of information on the money market, stock trading, market upbeat, downslide and related regalia, is the sensex. A partial industrial community representing brokers, share traders rely on the sensex for their source of revenue. Almost all nations and states display their sensex, exhibiting the up-to-the minute economy trends.  With the economic downfall, it is not only brokers and companies but also investors hailing from majority of households that are inhaling the 'opium of downbeat'. The complete economic scenario engulfing the common masses is witnessed at large leaving many jobless and bankrupt. This is the effect of the sensex index displaying a great fall during the last quarter of the year 2008. Thanks to the initiatives taken up by governments in several nations; the sensex is climbing but at a low rate.

Sensex India has mixed results to offer with thousands of stocks losing and hundreds gaining. The US, of late, has been witnessing deepening recession, also affecting Asian markets with Canada based Nortel filing for bankruptcy. While on one day, the BSE sensex showed high volumes with increased index figures, on another day, again the figures go neutral or lower. The most highly affected trading companies on the BSE sensex that have been on a declining rate are Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys, Wipro and more. The sectors that are faring well at present with very little gains are realty, banks and metal stocks.

The thirty primo companies listed on BSE sensex saw major rises and falls, the IT sector being the most affected with the Satyam fraud revelations and Nortel bankruptcy. The market, especially inflation, in addition to the downslide, has also been declining for ten consecutive weeks now and it is further going to show lower figures by the end of the current fiscal. Despite the Sensex India showing mixed results, the Indian government with its innovative and corrective measures still hopes for a 7% growth rate.
