History of Sensex

S&P BSE SENSEX, first compiled in 1986, was calculated on a 'Market Capitalization-Weighted' methodology of 30 component stocks representing large, well-established and financially sound companies across key sectors. The base year of S&P BSE SENSEX was taken as 1978-79. S&P BSE SENSEX today is widely reported in both domestic and international markets through print as well as electronic media. It is scientifically designed and is based on globally accepted construction and review methodology. Since September 1, 2003, S&P BSE SENSEX is being calculated on a free-float market capitalization methodology. The 'free-float market capitalization-weighted' methodology is a widely followed index construction methodology on which majority of global equity indices are based; all major index providers like MSCI, FTSE, STOXX, and Dow Jones use the free-float methodology.

The growth of the equity market in India has been phenomenal in the present decade. Right from early nineties, the stock market witnessed heightened activity in terms of various bull and bear runs. In the late nineties, the Indian market witnessed a huge frenzy in the 'TMT' sectors. More recently, real estate caught the fancy of the investors. S&P BSE SENSEX has captured all these happenings in the most judicious manner. One can identify the booms and busts of the Indian equity market through S&P BSE SENSEX. As the oldest index in the country, it provides the time series data over a fairly long period of time (from 1979 onwards). Small wonder, the S&P BSE SENSEX has become one of the most prominent brands in the country.
