  • 5. LITERATURE REVIEWThe Indian stock market provides a unique perspective for analyzing comovements and stockmarket integrationbecause of its burgeoning economy and its subsequent linkages to othereconomies. For instance, Modi et al.(2010) examined the stock market indices of India, HongKong, China, Mexico, Brazil, the UK, and the UnitedStates from July 1, 1997, to June 30, 2008.Using a multivariate analysis consisting of co-integration and principalcomponent analysis, they found thatlow correlations exist between Indian stock markets and Mexico, the UK,and the United States.Modi etal. also found that the lowest correlations exist between the India (SENSEX) andU.S.(NASDAQ) stock exchanges.The implications are that investors can diversify their portfolios by investingin stocks listed onthe SENSEX and NASDAQ simultaneously.Wong et al. (2004) observed this relationship by evaluating thelong run and short run relationship and linkagesbetween the Indian Stock Exchange (BSE 200) andthe United States (S&P 500), Japan (Nikkei 225), and UK(FTSE 100) from January 1, 1991,to December 31, 2003. Wong et al. found that the Indian stock market isintegrated withdeveloped markets and sensitive to dynamics in these markets in the long run. The researchersalso foundthat short-run stock returns in the United States and Japan Granger cause Indian stockmarkets but notthe opposite. Granger causality is a technique that examines the relationshipbetween two or more time series byexamining whether times series are co-integrated overboth the short and long run. Valadkhani,Chancharat, andHarvie (2008) studied therelationships between the stock market returns of 13 countries using principlecomponentanalysis. Monthly data from 1987 to 2007 was examined for correlations using MorganStanleyCapital International Database. Valadkhaniet al. found that high correlations existbetween countries located in thesame geographic region primarily Asia. Additionally, a correlation werefound to be high in developing countriesas well.These findings suggest that geographic and economicdevelopment do matter with respect to comovements of stock returns and has implications for financialportfolio diversification and reducing systemic risk. In otherwords, high correlations depictless diversification opportunities. The implications are that investors shouldseek diversification opportunities where correlations are low. Likewise, Jin (2005) observedthis relationship betweenShanghai, Hong Kong, and Taiwan markets. Daily, weekly, andmonthly data were retrieved from three indices inhost countries from July 1997 to December2001.The findings revealed that the Hong Kong and Taiwan stock markets are highly correlated whilethe correlations among Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Shanghai were not, eventhough economicintegration was shown by examining trade.The researcher further suggests that the Chinesegovernment avoid interfering with the marketand allow the market to perform accordingly. He also found that thelack of correlation amongShanghai, Hong Kong, and Taiwan depicts that investors are able to diversify theirportfolios by investing inShanghai and Hong Kong or Shanghai and Taiwan stock markets simultaneously.Economic integrationallows investors to diversify their portfolios. However, economic integration is not the onlyfactor thataffects co-movements. 5|Page
  • 6. Global events and financial crises also affect comovements.For instance, I. Meric, Ratner,Nygren, and Gulser (2007) compared the comovements of seven Latin Americancountieswith the U.S. and Canadian equity markets 5 years before September 11, 2001, and 5 yearsafterSeptember 11, 2001, using maximum likelihood, principal component analysis (PCA),and Granger causality.They found that equity markets changed significantly pre-September11 and post-September 11. The PCAindicated that all nine equity markets changed afterSeptember 11. I. Meric et al. also found Granger causalitydepicted that the lead/lagrelationship changed significantly after September 11. I. Mericetal. found thatdiversificationbenefits diminished after September 2001in these stock markets and reduced the advantagesof global portfolio diversification.Article byInternational Journal of Business and Social Science Vol. 3 No. 3; February 2012COMOVEMENTS AND STOCK MARKET INTEGRATION BETWEEN INDIA AND ITSTOPTRADING PARTNERS: A MULTIVARIATE ANALYSIS OF INTERNATIONALPORTFOLIODIVERSIFICATIONAlan Harper, Ph.D.College of BusinessSouth UniversityVirginia Beach, Virginia 23464USAZhenhu Jin, Ph.D.College of BusinessValparaiso UniversityValparaiso, Indiana 46385USa 6|Page
  • 7. RATIONALE FOR THE STUDYIn an industry plagued with skepticism and a stock market increasingly difficult to predictand contend with, if one looks hard enough there may still be a genuine aid for the DayTrader and Short Term Investor.The price of a security represents a consensus. It is the price at which one person agrees tobuy and another agrees to sell. The price at which an investor is willing to buy or sell dependsprimarily on his expectations. If he expects the securitys price to rise, he will buy it; if theinvestor expects the price to fall, he will sell it. These simple statements are the cause of amajor challenge in forecasting security prices, because they refer to human expectations. Aswe all know firsthand, humans expectations are neither easily quantifiable nor predictable.If prices are based on investor expectations, then knowing what a security should sell for (i.e.,fundamental analysis) becomes less important than knowing what other investors expect it tosell for. Thats not to say that knowing what a security should sell for isnt important--it is.But there is usually a fairly strong consensus of a stocks future earnings that the averageinvestor cannot disproveFundamental analysis and technical analysis can co-exist in peace and complement eachother. Since all the investors in the stock market want to make the maximum profits possible,they just cannot afford to ignore either fundamental or technical analysis. 7|Page

  • 11. HistoryThe Bombay Stock Exchange is the oldest exchange in Asia. It traces its history to the 1850s,when four Gujarati and one Parsi stockbroker would gather under banyan trees in front ofMumbais Town Hall. The location of these meetings changed many times, as the number ofbrokers constantly increased. The group eventually moved to Dalal Street in 1874 and in1875 became an official organization known as The Native Share & Stock BrokersAssociation.In 1956, the BSE became the first stock exchange to be recognized by the Indian Governmentunder the Securities Contracts Regulation Act. The Bombay Stock Exchange developed theBSE SENSEX in 1986, giving the BSE a means to measure overall performance of theexchange. In 2000 the BSE used this index to open its derivatives market, trading SENSEXfutures contracts. The development of SENSEX options along with equity derivativesfollowed in 2001 and 2002, expanding the BSEs trading platform. Historically an openoutcry floor trading exchange, the Bombay Stock Exchange switched to an electronic tradingsystem in 1995.It took the exchange only fifty days to make this transition. This automated, screen-basedtrading platform called BSE On-line trading (BOLT) currently has a capacity of 8 millionorders per day. The BSE has also introduced the worlds first centralized exchange-basedinternet trading system, BSEWEBx.co.in to enable investors anywhere in the world to tradeon the BSE platform. The BSE is currently housed in Phiroze Jeejeebhoy Towers at DalalStreet, Fort area. 11 | P a g e

  • 24. INTRODUCTIONInvesting, like marriage, isnt something that should be entered into lightly. Investing inequities gives high returns but they correspondingly have higher risk also. Before we investin a company, there are more than a few things we need to know about it.Securities AnalysisAn analysis of securities and the organization and operation of their markets. Thedetermination of the risk reward structure of equity and debt securities and their valuation.Special emphasis on common stocks. Other topics include options, mutual fluids andtechnical analysis.Technical analysis is a method of predicting price movements and future market trends bystudying charts of past market action which take into account price of instruments, volume oftrading and, where applicable, open interest in the instruments.Fundamental analysis is a method of forecasting the future price movements of a financialinstrument based on economic, political, environmental and other relevant factors andstatistics that will affect the basic supply and demand of whatever underlies the financialinstrument. Main differences between the two types of analysis: Fundamental analysis Technical analysis Focuses on what ought to Focuses on what actually happen in a market happens in a market Factors involved in price Charts are based on market analysis: action involving: 1. Supply and demand 1.Price 2.Seasonal cycles 2.Volume 3.Weather 3. Open interest (futures 4. Government policy only) 24 | P a g e
  • 25. TECHNICAL ANALYSISTechnical analysis can be conditionally divided into some main parts such as: Types of charts Graphical methods Analytical methodsTechnical analysis is concerned with predicting future price trends from historical price andvolume data. The underlying axiom of technical analysis is that all fundamentals (includingexpectations) are factored into the market and are reflected in exchange rates.A technical analysis is based on three axioms: Movement of the market considers everything Movement of prices is purposeful History repeats itself SUPPORT AND RESISTANCESupport is a level at which bulls (i.e., buyers) take control over the prices and prevent themfrom falling lower.Resistance, on the other hand, is the point at which sellers (bears) take control of prices andprevent them from rising higher. The price at which a trade takes place is the price at which abull and bear agree to do business. It represents the consensus of their expectations.Support levels indicate the price where the most of investors believe that prices will movehigher. Resistance levels indicate the price at which the most of investors feel prices willmove lower. 25 | P a g e
  • 26. Role ReversalWhen a resistance level is successfully broken through, that level becomes a support level.Similarly, when a support level is successfully broken through, that level becomes aresistance level.DOW THEORY– TRENDS:The ideas of Charles Dow, the first editor of the Wall Street Journal, form the basis oftechnical analysis. The Dow theory is a method of interpreting and signaling changes in thestock market direction based on the monitoring of the Dow Jones Industrial andTransportation Averages. Dow created the Industrial Average, of top blue chip stocks, and asecond average of top railroad stocks (now the Transport Average). He believed that thebehavior of the averages reflected the hopes and fears of the entire market. The behaviorpatterns that he observed apply to markets throughout the world.Three MovementsMarkets fluctuate in more than one time frame at the same time:Nothing is more certain than that the market has three well defined movements which fit intoeach other. The first is the daily variation due to local causes and the balance of buying and selling at that particular time. The secondary movement covers a period ranging from ten days to sixty days, averaging probably between thirty and forty days. The third move is the great swing covering from four to six years. 26 | P a g e
  • 27. Bull markets are broad upward movements of the market that may last several years, interrupted by secondary reactions. Bear markets are long declines interrupted by secondary rallies. These movements are referred to as the primary trend. Secondary movements normally retrace from one third to two thirds of the primary trend since the previous secondary movement. Daily fluctuations are important for short-term trading, but are unimportant in analysis of broad market movements.Various cycles have subsequently been identified within these broad categories.Primary Movements have Three PhasesThe general conditions in the market:Bull markets Bull markets commence with reviving confidence as business conditions improve. Prices rise as the market responds to improved earnings Rampant speculation dominates the market and price advances are based on hopes and expectations rather than actual results.Bear markets Bear markets start with abandonment of the hopes and expectations that sustained inflated prices. Prices decline in response to disappointing earnings. Distress selling follows as speculators attempt to close out their positions and securities are sold without regard to their true value. 27 | P a g e
  • 28. TrendsBull TrendsA bull trend is identified by a series of rallies where each rally exceeds the highest point ofthe previous rally. The decline, between rallies, ends above the lowest point of the previousdecline.Successive higher highs and higher lows.The start of an up trend is signaled when price makes a higher low (trough), followed by arally above the previous high (peak): Start = higher Low + break above previous High.The end is signaled by a lower high (peak), followed by a decline below the previous low(trough): End = lower High + break below previous Low.A bear trend starts at the end of a bull trend: when a rally ends with a lower peak and thenretreats below the previous low. The end of a bear trend is identical to the start of a bull trend. 28 | P a g e
  • 29. FUNDAMENTAL ANALYSISFundamental analysis refers to the study of the core underlying elements that influence theeconomy of a particular entity. It is a method of study that attempts to predict price action andmarket trends by analyzing economic indicators, government policy and societal factors (toname just a few elements) within a business cycle framework.I. ECONOMIC ANALYSIS:POLITICO-ECONOMIC ANALYSIS:No industry or company can exist in isolation. It may have splendid managers and atremendous product. However, its sales and its costs are affected by factors, some of whichare beyond its control - the world economy, price inflation, taxes and a host of others. It isimportant, therefore, to have an appreciation of the politico-economic factors that affect anindustry and a company.II. INDUSTRY ANALYSISThe importance of industry analysis is now dawning on the Indian investor as never before.1. BARRIER TO ENTRYNew entrants increase the capacity in an industry and the inflow of funds. The question thatarises is how easy is it to enter an industry ?There are some barriers to entry:a) Economies of scaleb) Product differentiationc) Capital requirementd) Government policy2. THE THREAT OF SUBSTITUTIONNew inventions are always taking place and new and better products replace existing ones.An industry that can be replaced by substitutes or is threatened by substitutes is normally anindustry one must be careful of investing in. An industry where this occurs constantly is thepackaging industry -bottles replaced by cans, cans replaced by plastic bottles, and the like. Toward off the threat of substitution, companies often have to spend large sums of money inadvertising and promotion. 29 | P a g e
  • 30. 3. BARGAINING POWER OF THE BUYERSIn an industry where buyers have control, i.e. in a buyers market, buyers are constantlyforcing prices down, demanding better services or higher quality and this often erodesprofitability.4. BARGAINING POWER FOR THE SUPPLIERSAn industry unduly controlled by its suppliers is also under threat.5. RIVALRY AMONG COMPETITORSRivalry among competitors can cause an industry great harm. This occurs mainly by pricecuts, heavy advertising, additional high cost services or offers, and the like.III. COMPANY ANALYSIS:At the final stage of fundamental analysis, the investor analyzes the company. This analysishas two thrusts:How has the company performed vis-à-vis other similar companies andHow has the company performed in comparison to earlier yearsIt is imperative that one completes the politico economic analysis and the industry analysisbefore a company is analyzed because the companys performance at a period of time is to anextent a reflection of the economy, the political situation and the industry. What does onelook at when analyzing a company?The different issues regarding a company that should be examined are:The ManagementThe CompanyThe Annual ReportRatiosTHE MANAGEMENT:The single most important factor one should consider when investing in a company and oneoften never considered is its management.In India management can be broadlydivided in two types:Family ManagementProfessional Manageme 30 | P a g e
