By Sunil S. Poshakwale and Chandra Thapa


This article examines the influence of foreign investors in explaining short-run dynamics and long-run relationship of the emerging Indian equity market with global equity markets.

With the increased global integration, the Indian market will become more susceptible to global shocks as has been witnessed by significant losses suffered by investors in the Indian market following the sub-prime crisis
