This December has been the worst for Sensex in 4 years
Investors are wary of fiscal slippage because of government's stimulus package ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha elections
Mumbai: The Indian stock markets continued to be under selling pressure on Monday, making it the worst December for Indian equities in the last four years. Domestic investors were cautious about the possibilities of fiscal slippage as a result of the government’s stimulus package ahead of the general elections, as uncertainty around global economies remained. This is the worst performance of the Sensex in December since 2015, with the index falling 2% in this month so far.
