J. Gaur, M. Dash

With the global financial crisis, the Indian economy is witnessing a downturn, with an overall weakening of its macroeconomic indicators.

This study examines the impact of selected macroeconomic factors on stock market performance in India using the Granger causality test. The results of the study showed that the only macroeconomic factor which had a significant causal effect on the performance of Indian stock markets was movements in net FIIs.

Keywords: macroeconomic factors, fundamental analysis, Granger causality test, net FIIs
