Stock market 2022 started on a great note. Euphoria was soaring. Everyone was buying into the stock market, and Nifty was touching all-time highs. But then Russia’s invasion of Ukraine kicked in, moving the stock markets across the world. Nifty, too turned jittery.
The markets started falling but rose back on the hope of Russia backing off, but that did not happen, pushing the world into an energy crisis (possibly on the brink of recession).
Rate hikes and then the US-led slowdown followed. But towards the end of the year, Nifty rose and beat all-time highs. 2022 was an eventful year, and here are a few stats from the year that was.
