As we know dollar and rupee are inversely related in India, when the value of the dollar goes up, rupee value decreases. In order to build a network among dollar, oil, and rupee, we need to describe the points in an accurate manner.
- During the rising price of the oil, if the dollar value increases, the rupee value will drastically fall.

Crude Oil Price Impact on Stock Market Trends
Now, let’s go through the Crude Oil Price Impact on Stock Market Trends.
During the last few years, the increase in the price of the crude oil had a direct as well as indirect impact on the Indian stock market. Though it is hard to imagine sometimes rise in the oil price carries a negative effect on the stock prices at the stock exchanges in India.
The main fear which drives the investors is that the profit margin of the companies will decrease because of the increase in the oil price. An increase in the oil price mainly increases the operational cost, fuel cost, transportation cost of the companies, obviously the profit margin of these companies will certainly decrease. This is one of the main reasons that the buyers become susceptible to the companies’ future that is hugely dependent on oil. This restricts the investors to invest in these companies. As a result, stocks price falls drastically, a negative effect spread on the overall market scenario. This phase is somehow temporary as the companies try to adjust to the price level to make up for the increased price in the oil to maintain the profit margin.
Hence, Crude Oil Price Impact on Stock Market Trends is mainly triggered by the panic of investors rather than actual impact. Apart from this, it is always wise to wait and watch after a rise in the oil prices takes place in the market. In this phase, it is comparatively safer to invest in sectors that are not really dependent on oil such as the software industry, the banking sector, financial companies, etc.

Just like the present scenario, today on 14th Nov, crude oil price drastically falls while the oil companies like Hind Petro, BPCL share price moves upward direction. This happens because the oil market falls.
