Reason 1: Reduction in corporate tax rates will boost market sentiments
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on 20th September 2019, reduced the effective corporate tax rates for domestic companies to 25.17 percent, inclusive of all cess and surcharges. This move is will make not only make Indian companies competitive globally but also beat the current slowdown in the economy as well as boost the market sentiments.
Reason 2: US and China are making goodwill gestures
Recently China and the United States had “constructive” discussions on trade in Washington. This move is expected to bring some respite to trade war between USA and China. This will improve market sentiments further as over the last few months US-China trade wars had hammered global stock markets badly, triggering a sell-off in Indian markets too.
Reason 3: Rollback of FPT tax surcharge

Ever since the surcharge was announced in July, an estimated $3 billion flowed out of the Indian market with FPI’s turning net sellers in the Indian share market.
