Around the world, there are a number of regional stock markets that deal in trading stocks in companies based or operating in their regions. Some of the major markets include the United States’ New York Stock Exchange, the Japan Stock Exchange, and markets in Hong Kong and India. One relatively small market that is making huge gains for investors that trade on it is the Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE). Here, we will attempt to establish a comparison between the CSE based in Sri Lanka and other major world markets.
An analysis of market trends in graphic form shows that the CSE has not been subject to as many major drops in prices as the larger markets. In fact, the leading index used to measure the performance of stocks on this market, the All Shares Price Index, shows that this market has enjoyed an almost steady climb over the past year.
The CSE is currently at an all time high with the graph trend showing that it has more climbing to do before it tops out and drops off slightly. The current increase over last year is approximately 126 percent. This is growth that is unparalleled in any of the other world stock markets. Investors who are looking for rapid growth of their portfolios would be more than happy to see growth potential like this in any market.
