Thirdly Indian market volatility is on the rise. However on the most recent bounce in the market it declined below US market volatility which suggests complacency and a large decline ahead in the mark. See the graphic below from Vix.co.in for a rounding bottom type pattern emerging in the India Vix which is bearish for the market in the long term:

Last but not the least the Chinese authorities seem to have lost control of their market which has resulted in a free fall. Contagion risk to other BRIC countries like India is likely:
