2012 was a year in which liquidity buoyed the equity markets across the globe. Very low yields on US bonds led to money flowing into US stocks and some of the liquidity spilled over into emerging markets. However, a high fiscal deficit and a wide current account deficit supported bond yields while the rupee depreciated a bit.
