Reasons why the market suffers on the last Friday of the Month:
- Future & Options(F&O) Expiry (Weekly & Monthly)
This is a phenomenon where Stocks, Nifty, NiftyBank go through changes in volumes which can be on the higher or lower side depending on input news like RBI Policy changes, New Initiatives, Interest Rate Reduction or Geopolitical Developments
- Profit Booking
It is very common for traders and medium-term investors to buy stocks with a short-term (15–30day) horizon. This leads to volatility when they exit their positions
- Buy Today Sell Tomorrow (BTST)
It is also very common for traders and medium-term investors to buy stocks and redeem the capital with profit before the T+2 delivery is completed. This is another reason for market volatility
- Residual Effect from Global Markets
Owing to globalization, the Indian Markets move to a certain extent in line with the Global Markets especially NASDAQ, NYSE, FTSE, etc.
Any weakness or correction on Wall Street is replicated on Dalal Street.
- Block and/or Bulk Deals for Exit of Existing Investors
In Bulk or Block Deal, the exchange of shares and money is huge leading to sudden availability or scarcity of shares which can impact the prices of the stock
