This is a pleasant surprise. not sure about others but atleast for me. Markets from last 12 months especially last 3 months were incredibly tough with headline indices being rangebound and small and midcaps giving huge negative returns. Positive trends don’t last even for a week or two at a stretch. But still, if demat additions have hit 6 months high in January, it goes on to show the direction at which the industry is heading.
Once markets start their bull run, this should only head higher.
