NIFTY: Inside Stories

Reported insider selling has been quite active lately for Indian listed equities. So we take a quick look at it

Looking at the graphs, here are some stylized facts

1) the inside selling activity has been most wide spread recently. Although the total value of gross and net insider selling has come off the peak in April 14, the number of companies involved is still much higher than last few years average

2) The aggregated inside selling does not appear to be a good predictor of the general direction of the market. It seems, the company insiders are usually happy to lock in a local maxima after a slump in price.

3) Give 1 and 2 above, it may not be time yet to worry about the end of the bull market
