Tue, 17 Apr 12:30 pm | Rini Mehta, TM Team

After opening the day flat, share markets in India have continued to trade rangebound, and are trading marginally below the dotted line. Sectoral indices are trading on a mixed note with stocks in the capital goods sector and stocks in the IT sector leading the losses.

The BSE Sensex is trading down by 11 points (down 0.1%), and the NSE Nifty is trading down by 12 points (down 0.1%). Meanwhile, the BSE Mid Cap index is trading flat, while the BSE Small Cap index is trading up by 0.1%. The rupee is trading at 65.62 to the US$.

In news about the economy. The World Bank forecast a growth rate of 7.3% for India this year and 7.5% for 2019 and 2020, and noted that the country's economy has recovered from the effects of demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax.

The bank said that factors such as sustained recovery in private investment and private consumption will spur growth going forward.

How We Were Able To Predict The Rise Of The IT Sector...

The NSE IT Index has moved up more than 21% between 16th August 2017 and 31st January 2018.

Would you believe me if we told you one of our senior research analysts, Apurva Sheth, had predicted this rise in advance?

Yes!

Not only that, Apurva also zeroed in on one IT stock he believed would benefit greatly from the rise. And that's exactly what happened.

So what strategy did Apurva use for it? And how could YOU potentially benefit from it now too?

In its report the World Bank said, India should strive to accelerate investments and exports to take advantage of the recovery in global growth.

Teething issues related to implementation of GST, which hampered operations of small and medium sized enterprises and exporters, also contributed to growth moderation.

GDP Growth Getting Back on Track

According to the World Bank, the most substantial medium-term risks are associated with private investment recovery, which continues to face several domestic impediments such as corporate debt overhang, regulatory and policy challenges, along with the risk of an imminent increase in US interest rates.If the internal bottlenecks are not alleviated, subdued private investment would put downside pressures on India's potential growth

India's GDP grew by 7.2% in Q3 FY18. Manufacturing grew by 8.1% for the quarter compared to 7.9% in the same quarter last year. Cement, electricity, coal, and steel, the bedrock of the economy, all witnessed robust growth.

India also surpassed China as the world's fastest growing economy. Rest assured, we'll keep a close eye on this trend.
