This study investigates the presence of long memory and non-linear dynamics in Indian stock market returns for a period of 19 years from May 1997 to May 2016 by using Rescaled Range (R/S) method and V-statistics. The empirical findings suggest that Indian stock market shows a high degree of long-range persistence and future stock price can be predicted. The study also finds the presence of multiple non-periodic cycles in the data generating process, with a maximum cycle length of 3.7 years.
