Sensex India

BSE Sensex (Sensitive Index) is the pulse of the Indian capital market. Often interpreted as Sensex India to connote the Indian share market at the international level, this benchmark index was first compiled in January 1, 1986. It comprises of 30 largest and most actively traded stocks. The base year of BSE Sensex is 1978-79 and the base value is 100 index points. This is often indicated by the notation 1978-79=100.

BSE Sensex Index divisor

Current Indian stock market conditions are reflected in the Sensex India index. The calculation of BSE Sensex involves dividing the free float market capitalization of 30 companies in the Index by a number called the Index Divisor. The Divisor is the only link to the original base period value of the BSE Sensex. It keeps the Sensex India Index comparable over time and is the adjustment point for all Index adjustments arising out of corporate actions, replacement of scrips, etc. During market hours, prices of the index scrips, at which latest trades are executed, are used by the trading system to calculate the BSE Sensex on a continuous basis using the free-float methodology. Restricted Indian stocks are excluded; only shares readily available for trading are calculated.

Free float methodology was adopted with effect from September 1, 2003. Initially, ‘full market capitalization’ method was used to calculate the BSE sensex. Free float refers to readily available shares for online trading. A listed company in the BSE, in the process, is assigned a weight for the calculation. The free float index reflects the market trends more rationally besides being useful for performance measurement of companies.
