Dollex-30 is the Bombay Stock Exchange's Sensex Index quoted in U.S. dollars. BSE SENSEX is also called BSE-30. The BSE introduced Dollex-30 on July 25, 2001. Except for the Dollex indices, all other BSE indices reflect growth in the market value of their constituent stocks in Indian rupees.
With increasing inflows of foreign direct investment (FDI) and as Indian equity markets integrate rapidly with global capital markets, the Dollex indices take into account currency fluctuations to show Indian growth in dollar terms. They are international benchmarks for the Indian market and reflect changes in both stock prices and exchange rates. As a result, they are useful to foreign investors looking to measure the "real returns" of their investments in the Indian market.
