Indian equities have fallen more than 2 per cent in January even as their Asian counterparts posted stellar gains. The benchmark Nifty50 fell 2.4 per cent — most among major global markets.
In dollar terms, India was the only market to log negative returns. 
All the other major Asian markets posted gains during the first month of 2023. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng rose 9.9 per cent, South Korea’s Kospi gained 8.4 per cent and China's Shanghai Composite rose 5.4 per cent. The gains were even more in dollar terms, amid a retreat in the greenback. Most European markets also posted sharp gains.
