By | November 11, 2023 11:15 am

Historically, the stock indices have performed well during the Muhurat trading times over the past decade. Let’s examine the data from the past few years  on how the Nifty has performed historically on the days of Muhurat trading:

The “MUHURAT ” trading session will be conducted for 60 minutes on 12 Nov 2023, on leading bourses NSE and BSE, to pay obeisance to Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity. It would also mark the New Year for traders as per the Hindu calendar, or Samwat 2080.

However, they saw minor losses in Muhurat trading in 2017 (-0.6 percent), 2016 (-0.04 percent), and 2012 (-0.3 percent).

The best Muhurat trading performance till date was witnessed in 2008 during the peak of the global financial crisis. In that session on October 28, 2008, the indices jumped nearly 6 percent, the highest ever in a Muhurat trading session.
Let’s take a look at how the indices performed each year since 2008 on Diwali day:

It’s important to note that since liquidity is very limited on the Muhurat trading day, it is not advisable to buy or sell a lot, but most investors especially new investors, can get started by making token investments in stocks you are interested in, on this auspicious occasion.
