Here's an article which states that 2011 has been the second worst year for the Indian markets in last 14 years!.
Although ,such plain statistics do not matter a lot for the individual investors, the fact is 2008 has been the worst year. 2009 the best i.e the one which followed the worst. ( in the last 14 years,-I am not sure why 14 years were picked up)
So , what do you expect after the second worst year.. No predictions :-))
