What is NIFTY? – Meaning and Definition of NIFTY

ADVERTISEMENTS

NIFTY is an Index computed from performance of  top stocks from different sectors listed on NSE (National stock exchange). NIFTY consists of 50 companies from 24 different sectors. NIFTY stands for National Stock Exchange’s Fifty.   The companies which form index of  NIFTY may vary from time to time based on many factors considered by NSE.  NIFTY is for NSE similarly  SENSEX is for BSE

Some mutual funds use NIFTY index as a benchmark meaning the mutual funds’ performance is compared against the performance of NIFTY. On NSE there are futures and options available for trading with NIFTY as underlying index.

India Index Services and Products Ltd. (IISL) owns NIFTY. IISL is a joint venture of NSE and CRISIL. CRISIL is a subsidiary of Standard and Poor (S&P). And so NIFTY is also called as S&P CNX NIFTY.

Hi Muralidharan,

On the new NSE site you see VWAP ( which is Volume Weighted Average Price) on the quote page of a stock. Is this the one you were looking for?

Hi,

Wanted to know what does NIFTY actually indicate? There is ample material on how it is calculated. But is it an average price, or something else?

Sathish Emmadi February 6, 2012 at 11:12 am

It’s weighted average of free float market capitalization of all the 50 companies.

NSE has national reach to major market segments like equity or capital markets, futures and options or derivatives market, wholesale debt market, mutual funds, initial public offerings and so on. There is also a concept of day trading which suits well for short term investments.
