Nifty Total Returns Inverse Index

An Inverse Index tries to provide inverse return of its underlying index. A broader index provides good
exposure to an economy, an inverse index on a broader index will provide the desired exposure when the
investor is bearish on the markets. We have already seen Alpha and Beta Indices provided by National Stock Exchange of India and now NSE India has introduced few more indices like Nifty TR 1x Inverse Index and Nifty TR 2x Inverse Index.

Nifty TR Inverse Index provides the investor an opportunity to create an position which gives inverse (opposite) returns as compare to Nifty TR Index. The index is designed to provide the inverse performance of the Nifty TR, representing a short position in the index.

Methodology:

Index value calculation -
Nifty TR 1x Inverse Index Value = Previous day’s Nifty TR 1x Inverse Index Value * (1+ Nifty TR 1x Inverse Index Return).

Graphical Representation:

nifty-inverse-index


Similar to Nifty TR 1x Inverse Index, there is one more index namely Nifty TR 2x Inverse Index, which is a Leveraged index is designed to generate multiple time return of the underlying index in situations where the investor borrows funds to generate index exposure beyond his/her cash position.

Hope we can expect Inverse mutual funds soon from Indian Mutual Fund Industry and these indices could act as benchmark to the schemes.

    Active funds are regularly managed/reviewed by experts ,And hence they charge fees to the extent of 5 t0 10%..Whereas in passive funds like ETF are not monitored by them.But they buy the units as per their predefined waitage of differen shares.They are not bothered whether that particular scrip doing well or nt.That if they have decide to buy 5%tcs ,they keep on buy 5% amount of your unit for tcs.Hope this helps.

Your Bill Amounts Are Going To Increase From June 1, 2016

Service tax is a tax levied by the government on service providers on certain service transactions, but is actually borne by the customers. It is categorized under Indirect Tax and came into existence under the Finance Act, 1994. Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, in his budget announcements proposed to impose a cess, called the Krishi Kalyan Cess, @ 0.5% on all taxable services. The present rate of service tax will be hiked to 15 per cent from June 1, 2016, from 14.5 per cent. Take a look at what gets expensive:



Phone Bills: Your phone bills are going to go up. So, pay a good 15 per cent now on service tax on phone bills.

Restaurant Bills :If you are dining in a restaurant that already has service tax applicable, you are going to pay more on your eating out. Though 0.5 per cent on a single bill may not mean much, frequent diners may end-up paying a lot during the year.

Travelling: You will have to pay more for air travel, as there is a service tax on tour operators and travel agents.
