According to data collected Bloomberg, the total value of listed shares on Indian exchanges has reached $4.33 trillion, while the market capitalization in Hong Kong is $4.29 trillion.

The success of the Indian market is driven by the growth of small investors and high corporate profits. In addition, India competes with China and against the background of the outflow of investors from the Celestial Empire and the general gloomy situation in the Chinese economy, India is increasing its capital.
