In the short run, the market is a voting machine. But in the long run, it is a weighing machine.

India's industrial output, measured by the Index of Industrial Production (IIP), grew 3.6 per cent year-on-year (y-o-y) in the month of October, according to the data released by the Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation (MoSPI).

The country's industrial output had contracted 6.6 per cent in October 2019, while it grew by 0.2 per cent in September 2020

The sustained growth in the industrial output for the second consecutive month indicated that the general economic situation improved across sectors.

The October IIP growth was the fastest in last 7 months after it turned positive in September, following six months of contraction.

The October IIP growth was driven by a positive rise in electricity and manufacturing sector while the mining sector contracted 1.5 per cent.

Bottom line: When was the last time you heard so many positive news in a matter of few days?
