The impact of macro-economic factors on stock returns has been long proven through research studies. This paper extends this idea to understand the impact of macro-economic factors on sectoral indices of the National stock exchange (NSE) of India. The study uses data over a 10 year period. Based on regression models, the study shows that crude oil prices and forex rates have a pervasive significant impact on sectoral indices. Besides, there are several other macro-economic factors which affect specific sectoral indices.
