What is nifty ?
The nifty 50 is a group of 50 large cap shares .There are two stock exchanges available in India; one is the NSE (National Stock Exchange) and the second one is the BSE (Bombay Stock Exchange) . Here are some misconceptions about NSE & BSE. Some people think that NSE is having more companies than BSE but that all are fake because BSE has over 5000 companies listed and similarly NSE is having 1600 companies listed.
So assume that in the whole vegetable market how we know the rate of veggies are high or low as.you need to look one by one all vegetables rate like what is the rate of potato or what is rate of onion but if you have 5000 variety of veggies it take all of your time to knowing all rates of veggies.For make your work as easy there are formation of ‘INDEX’ that is caring out all markets data all of the stocks on exchange are going up or down that shows index so that are NIFTY.
The NIFTY 50 is a high value index on the NSE (national stock exchange), otherwise sensex is a high value index BSE. Nifty world was made by 2 words National Fifty, and sensex is a short-form of sensitive index.The Nifty 50 is carrying India’s high value 50 stocks that makes a measure impact on NSE(national stock exchange) or Indian market .
Some kind Nifty 50 all Fifty companies are india’s top 50 companies that are listed on both stock exchanges somehow there are also having nifty 100 or Nifty 200 or nifty 500 Just like Nifty 50 is carrying out india’s top 50 companies like nifty 100 also caring india’s top 100 companies like NSE OR BSE Nifty 100 also carrying nifty 50 companies and Nifty 200 also caring india’s top two hundred companies like nifty 50 and Nifty 100.
Somehow people are saying ‘why nifty 50 shows all NSE companies data because already nifty is caring 1600 companies then how only 50 companies show market trend ?
So that was because NIFTY Top 50 companies carry more than 50% of the Indian stock market. They are all huge companies that are listed on NSE OR BSE just like Reliance Industries or TATA group of industries.so that if the majority of 50 stocks are carrying out 50 % of market cap of indian market so it can change the trends 0f the market . Only
Reliance industries have 10% weightage on Nifty 50 NSE(National stock exchange). Hence NIFTY50 is an index that describes market trends up or down. We can also say like Bull or Bear.Bull means uptrend or bear means Down trend in the market.
Why are we called Bull or Bear ?
Because when a Bull saw his target or enemy he tries to push it up with his horns so many peoples in the market are trying to push market to the up that’s why they are known as Bull as well as Bear is push down his claw to get his enemy or food as like bull some peoples are trying to push market up so some people are trying to pull down the market for getting better deals.
NSE(National Stock Exchange) was launched in 1992 as per Business view NSE is the world’s 3rd number of stock exchanges having more than 1600 companies inside .
NIFTY50 is possessed and overseen by NSE Indices (recently known as India Index Services and Products Limited), which is an entirely claimed auxiliary of the NSE Strategic Investment Corporation Limited.NSE Indices had a promoting and permitting concurrence with Standard and Poor’s for co-marking value files until 2013. The Nifty 50 record was sent off on 22 April 1996, and is one of the many stock files of Nifty.
Like Nifty50 the world has more indices like nifty or sensex than india. So NSE(National Stock Exchange) having five category of index each one is having there indices

Many times people ask that suppose if Sensex is an Index of 30 companies then those 30 companies should be affected. I have invested in a particular company so why does my stocks get affected ?
Many times , a sentiment of the market is called group psychology. You must have heard a proverb” all ships rise with the rising tide, So when there is a high tide, All ships rise with it. And with the low tide, all ships also go down. Similarly, if the sensex or the market does very well, then sometimes bad companies also rise with it and sometimes when the sensex goes down, many good companies also go down. And it becomes very important for you to analyze.

Eligibility Criteria for Nifty 50 Stock List
As per the NIFTY 50 index methodology published by the IISL, the eligibility criteria that must be fulfilled by a company to become a part of the index are as follows:
- The company must be based in India and listed on the National Stock Exchange.
- In order to be included in the NIFTY 50 index, the stock must be available for trading in the NSE’s Futures & Options segment and must be a part of NIFTY 100.
- Equity securities with Differential Voting Rights (DVR) are eligible to be a part of the index, provided they fulfil certain requirements.
- The stock under consideration must have traded at an average impact cost of 0.50% or less, over the course of the last six months for 90% of the observations. Impact cost is nothing but the cost incurred by the buyer or seller while executing a transaction of a given security, with a pre-defined order size.
- The company’s trading frequency must be 100% for the previous six months.
- The average free float market capitalisation of the company must be at least 1.5 times the average free float market capitalisation of the smallest constituent of the NIFTY 50.
How is NIFTY 50 Calculated
- Free float market capitalisation is the market capitalisation calculated for all the shares which are publicly available for trading. It is important to remember that free float market capitalization does not take those shares which are held by promoters, government, employee welfare funds, or any corporate entity. The proportion of shares which are held by the general public and are available for trading is represented by a ratio known as Investable Weight Factor (IWF).
- The base year is 1995 and the base value is 1,000. The base market capital is the market capitalisation of the company in the year 1995.
- NIFTY 50 index is calculated for the 50 stocks which are actively traded on the NSE.
- Base market capital is the aggregate market capitalisation of each stock in the index during the base period.
Free float market capitalisation = (Shares outstanding) x (Price) x (IWF)
Index Value = (Current Market Value)/(Base Market Capital) x (Base Index Value)
To understand this better, let us consider an example. For the sake of simplicity, let us assume that NIFTY comprises only two companies – X and Y.
Company X has a total of 1,000 shares of which, 300 are held by promoters while the remaining 700 are held by the general public, and are available for trading. As for the Company B, it has a total of 1,500 shares of which 1,000 are available for active trading and the remaining 500 are with promoters, governments and corporate entities.
The share price of Company X is Rs.20 and the share price of Company Y is Rs.30. The base market value of the two companies is Rs.6,000.
X’s free float market capitalisation = 700 x 20 = Rs.14,000
Y’s free float market capitalisation = 1,000 x 30 = Rs. 30,000
Total free float market cap of the two companies = Rs.44,000. Therefore, NIFTY = (44,000)/(6,000) x 1,000 = 7,333.3
