positive shocks to the global demand for industrial commodities cause both higher crude oil prices and higher stock prices.4 Abstract: While there is a strong presumption in the financial press that oil prices drive the stock market. which helps explain the resilience of the Indian stock market to the recent surge in the price of oil. The conventional wisdom that higher oil prices necessarily cause lower stock prices is shown to apply only to oil-market specific demand shocks such as increases in the precautionary demand for crude oil that reflect concerns about future oil supply shortfalls. This study shows that the response of aggregate Indian stock market returns or movement may differ greatly depending on whether the increase in the price of crude oil is driven by demand or supply shocks in the crude oil market. . In contrast. the empirical evidence on the impact of oil price shocks on stock prices has been mixed.

Crude Oil has been traded in throughout the world and there prices are behaving like any other commodity as swinging more during shortage and excessiveness. Crude oil prices act like any other product cost with more variation taken place during shortage and excess supply. In the short term. Therefore. Any fluctuation in crude oil affects the other industrial segments also. The stock exchanges of every country keep a close eye on any up and downward movement of the crude oil price. whereas from medium to long run it is influenced by the fundamentals of demand and supply which thus results into self price correction mechanism. Many times it has been recorded that prices of essential products like crude also acts as a prime driver in becoming reason of up and down movement of price. which in turns negatively affects other trading practices that are directly or indirectly depends on it. Studies have conducted to analyze the impact of rise in crude oil price to the economic growth in the OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) countries. any upward and downward motion of prices are closely tracked in the domestic marketplace. India meets more than 80% of its requirement by importing process. Introduction Crude Oil Industry Crude oil is one of the most necessitated worldwide required commodities. Higher crude oil price implies to the higher price of energy. India fulfills its major crude oil requirements by importing it from oil producing nations. The volatility of crude oil prices drove many companies away and its impact the stock market also. status of financial markets. price of crude oil is influenced by many factors like socio and political events.6 Institutional Investors (FIIs) and FDI determines market’s situation and operate SENSEX.

The increasing import bill will widen our Trade Balance.resulting in a higher price. we are a net importer of oil. Higher trade balance will adversely impact the fiscal deficit.

Higher import bill directly and indirectly impacts the rupee. for example. suggested that oil price changes have no effect on asset pricing. and hence even the rupee. and Stoll (1996). Huang.

oil prices are treated as strictly exogenous with respect to the global economy. we can saw market plunging after the RBI announced further hikes in Repo rate as well as CRR both increased to 9%. (2) Many previous empirical and theoretical models of the link between oil prices and stock prices have been constructed under the premise that one can think of varying the price of crude oil. An 800+ point surge was experienced in the market on the day following UPA gaining vote of confidence but the very next day market couldn’t maintain the momentum and since then its in a doldrums’ position. the global financial sector turmoil impacts sentiment in the local market and raises worries of more withdrawals by foreign funds. This premise is not credible (see. Indian shares fell 4.FDI. joining a world equities rout as investors dumped financials on concerns about the fallout from worsening global credit turmoil. And above all we can't see any positive trigger that can dilute the flow of negative news. Presently. Although Indian banks have no direct exposure to the US subprime mortgage sector.

INFLATION etc and their impact on sensex • LIMITATIONS OF STUDY Existing studies of the relationship between crude oil prices and market returns suffer from three limitations. There are many variables like inflation . OBJECTIVE OF THE PROJECT To Study the relation between crude oil price and movement of Indian stock market. (1) We can’t conclude that the crude oil price is the only variable which impacts the stock market.

to the extent that exogenous demand shocks in the crude oil market have direct effects on the indian economy in addition to their indirect effects through the real price of oil. depending on whether the oil price increase is driven by oil production shortfalls. RESEARCH METHODOLOGY In order to does the research on movement of stock market (Sensex) with the movement of crude oil price. existing models postulate that the effect of an exogenous increase in the price of oil is the same. For example. There are good theoretical reasons and there is strong empirical evidence that global macroeconomic fluctuations have influenced the price of crude oil since the 1970s (see Kilian 2008a.. The fact that the same economic shocks that drive macroeconomic aggregates (and thus stock returns) may also drive the price of crude oil makes it difficult to separate cause and effect in studying the relationship between oil prices and stock returns. We have study the last three year 1st April 2006 to 31st March 2009.20 e.c). It is quite natural to expect similar differences in the effect of these shocks on stock returns. Barsky and Kilian 2002.g. Inflation. Data Description . FII. Hamilton 2003). Recent work by Kilian (2008c) has shown that the effects of demand and supply shocks in the crude oil market on indian stock market. it is widely accepted that a global business cycle expansion (as in recent years) tends to raise the price of crude oil. by a booming world economy. their effect on stock returns is bound to be different from one episode to the next. and to the extent that they affect other industrial commodity prices. (3) Even if we were to control for reverse causality. Since major oil price shocks historically have been driven by varying combinations of these demand and supply shocks. 2004. it is not possible to think of an innovation to the real price of oil while holding everything else constant. regardless of which underlying shock in the oil market is responsible for driving up the price of crude oil. FDI. or by shifts in precautionary demand for crude oil that reflect increased concerns about future oil supply shortfalls. Moreover. macroeconomic aggregates are qualitatively and quantitatively different.

and as well as past Sensex closing price as independent variable. coefficient of variation and T-test by using these statistical tools we will prove whether all the independent variable impact the dependent variable or not. And the monthly wise crude oil closing data from the BSE and the monthly wise crude oil price from the energy information administration year (2006-2009) and we have taken the monthly wise FII movement from RBI. FII. journal. in the present study we have taken the last three year (20062009) BSE-30 (sensex) monthly wise closing data from the BSE. . To find out the relation between dependent variable and independent variable. and websites. magazines. And Alternative hypothesis is H1=µ= All the independent variable have impact on stock market (Sensex).21 To study the market movement we have collected the secondary data from various sources. And the past event the stock market information has been taken from various news bulletins. Method In this study we have taken the BSE-30 (Sensex) as dependent variable and crude oil price. HYPOTHESIS TESTING Let the null hypotheses is Ho=µ= All the independent variable doesn’t have any impact on stock market (Sensex). we have run the regression model with the help of SPSS software and also we find the correlation between dependent variable and independent variable.
