BSE Sensex, which is also called the Bombay Stock Exchange Sensitive Index, account for around 50% of the BSE market capitalization.
Since September 01, 2003, the BSE Sensex becomes a free-float market capitalization-weighted index; it was a market Capitalization-Weighted index before that.
This item downloads adjusted historical end-of-day data of the BSE Sensex and assigns the quotes to the following symbol "^BSESN". The data spans from July 1997 to present.
You can download historical EOD data of stocks listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange using BSE historical data by date or BSE historical data. The first item downloads data by symbol; the second downloads data by date.
Instead of using the total market capitalization of the companies that are parts of an index, a free-float market capitalization-weighted index weights its components according only to their free-float market capitalization, which means that each company stock price is multiplied by two values: its market capitalization and its free-float value. The free-float is the portion of shares that are available for trading and are not hold by large owner (example: founders, executives, strategic shareholders...)
The base value of the SENSEX is 100 and the base year is 1978-79. As of the beginning of February 2010, its value is equal to 16356, which translates in an increase of 16356% in approximately 30 years.
