Now that China has confrimed in October data that there is a real recovery with HSBC PMI closest to the growth paradigm’s 50 mark, at 49.5 Indian core sector’s growth at more than 5% across a 13% jump in Coal production and 21% in Cement in October alongwith jump in Electricity and myriad other ‘core’ businesses including oil gas and steel means it would be a healthy PMI tracing the only other positive PMI among the world’s large Economies in the US and Net Exports as trade makes 18% of our GDP and the deficit stays in check with Oil imports cheaper even if demand for the same rise might also rise along with the definite growth clip on Services PMI

Both TaMo and Starbucks fed Tata Global remain on analyst radars as seeming corporate governance issues look to snip the investment led potential dscoveries from outgoing Chair Ratan Tata’s teams.
Reliance’s big ticket investments for D6 with BP and more importantly its seeming victories in the bid to raise the price of Gas from its units remain new mysteries speculators get to capitalise on but the uptick is brilliantly pre done as the noise of future rate cyuts bring the market out of the sulky pout.
