The stock market has jumped over 10,000, and India looks like the most optimistic country in the world. Indians have made a bigger leap of faith and remain at the top of the global list with a confidence index at 132 points - nine points ahead of the world's second' most optimistic nation, New Zealand.
A majority of Indians are willing to purchase what they desire and invest in mutual funds and shares, way ahead of their Asian counterparts, as our global online consumer confidence shows. India is witnessing a retail boom with consumers (66 per cent) being excited in trying out new products and services.
Apart from that, disposable income is making its way beyond the traditional savings behaviour to investments in the stock markets.
