Hello, The Sensex and Nifty are both Indices. The Sensex, also called the BSE 30, is a stock market index of 30 well-established and financially sound companies listed on Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). The Nifty, similarly, is an indicator of the 50 top major companies on the National Stock Exchange (NSE). **`Sensex in layman language`** Sensex stands for SENSitivity indEX. In simple terms, sensex is a indicator or index to show the daily price movement of select shares (called blue-chip shares). The opening price and closing price of shares (increase or decrease) with respect to the average / base price determines this. The select shares (blue chips) are selected on the basis of their performance / company turnover / number of shares being traded in stock exchange. In case of National Stock Exchange (NSE), this index is called as NIFTY. Sensex is nothing but an economy parameter. The Sensex has a very important function. The Sensex is supposed to be an indicator of the stocks. It is supposed to show whether the stocks are generally going up, or generally going down.

Sensex (BSE Sensex): The Bombay Stock Exchange's Sensitive Index, also called Sensex or BSE Sensex, is one of the leading stock market benchmark indices in India. It tracks the movement of stock prices on the exchange and functions as an indicator of market sentiments. Launched by BSE in 1986, Sensex consists of 30 components (stocks) that represent, broadly, the composition of the entire market. Each of the scrips is assigned a weightage on the index that is linked to its market capitalization. It measures a particular stock's ability to influence movements in the index. The base year of the Sensex is 1978-79 with the base index value taken as 100 points. While the number of components has remained the same since its inception, the composition of the Sensex changes periodically as scrips are inducted or removed depending on their market capitalization, frequency and volume of trading and volatility among other parameters. For a long time the BSE Sensex was the only benchmark index in India for the stock markets until the National Stock Exchange was launched in the early nineties. Its S&P Nifty Index is a much broader index, but the Sensex is still followed as a barometer of market sentiment in India.

Sensex is an index of the stocks in BSE (Bombay Stock Exchange). Sensex has a list of 30 stocks. BSE decides the stocks that are to be listed on Sensex, The criteria for picking a stock to be listed on Sensex is volume of the trade of that stock and total volume of the stock in BSE. Based on the above said factors BSE regularly prepares a set of 30 stocks which will be together called as SENSEX. BTW Sensex means sensitive Index Now each stock is allotted a weight-age according to a criteria (the criteria is too difficult to explain now) and the criteria also keeps on changing with time. So now stocks are normally traded in BSE each day and price of stocks is determined according to demand and supply Now they calculate the weighted total of all the stock prices and come up with a number. That number is called Sensex. So when the news says SENSEX is going up it means that the weighted total of all the stocks is going up. But it does not mean all the stocks are going up, it is possible that some stocks are losing and still SENSEX is going up due to huge gains in other stocks.
