As far as i know foreign money cumming through stock market can not be treated as stable investment.They will buy shares with good fundamental
when the Market is low and sell market is high .That will effect Balance of payment.Because our export performance also very week during last period

Event these days if stock market go up foreigners will start selling

We should try get direct foreign investment for economic activities

Pl correct me if i am wrong

Definition of 'Stock Market Capitalization To GDP Ratio'
A ratio used to determine whether an overall market is undervalued or overvalued. The ratio can be used to focus on specific markets, such as the U.S. market, or it can be applied to the world market depending on what values are used in the calculation.


Investopedia explains 'Stock Market Capitalization To GDP Ratio'

The result of this calculation is the percentage of GDP that represents stock market value. Typically, a result of greater than 100% is said to show that the market is overvalued, while a value of around 50%, which is near the historical average for the U.S. market, is said to show undervaluation. In recent years, however, determining what percentage level is accurate in showing undervaluation and overvaluation has been hotly debated.

In 2000, according to statistics at the World Bank the market cap to GDP ratio for the U.S. was 153%, a sign of an overvalued market. With the U.S. market falling sharply after the dotcom bubble burst, this ratio may have some predictive value in signaling peaks in the market. However, in 2003, the ratio was around 130%, which was still overvalued but the market went on to produce all-time highs over the next few years.

Source - Investopedia

Today (2013), Sri-Lanka GDP approx usd 60 Billion. Market Cap approx usd 15 Billion.
Therefore current ratio (market cap to GDP) is approx 25 %
