Test of Efficient Market Hypothesis in Indian Indices (2014)

Efficient Market Hypothesis in Indian Indices Dissertation – This dissertation focuses on the current state of EMH’s existence in top 4 Indian Indices namely Auto, Bank, IT and Pharma. If an efficient market should occur, disparity between the market price of a script and its intrinsic value, it would be exploited by savvy speculators act accordingly to benefit from this “temporary inefficiency”. Speculators buy undervalued shares in order to get quick capital gains, which would create a demand pressure which would push its price up to place it in its intrinsic value.

Otherwise, if the Share is overrated these same speculators would sell so that its price would fall, due to supply pressure, Script will reach its theoretical value. In short, only the brightest will draw a profit from inefficiencies time (the more speculators of this type has lower profit, the rest of participants found really believe in an efficient market). Therefore changes in the prices reflect exactly what unpredictable, it makes the series of price changes is random type, more specifically is said to follow a random walk.

As we all know we cannot expect market to behave in a way that it should have to. So, it’s very much necessary to understand the efficiency of the market. The main objective of the dissertation is to understand the current state of existence of EMH in Indian Indices, to make investment decision in uncertain times. The Objective of the study is to understand the EMH’s real state of existence in top 4 indexes and CNX Nifty. CNX Nifty is a benchmark index. It includes all major industries.
