A single stroke move at the start of the week followed by one barely hanging Tuesday and the markets are a volatile potpourri. Despite the pre ponderence of institutions, markets have come out of 2010’s downturn having decided to be a one shot vaccine for India’s Economy woes every morning, tanking a 100 nifty points today to 6250 levels on the every thought of having to continue at the new range without a hope of an immediate rise to the promised lands at 6500
As Dominic Barton reminds us this morning, India is not on the priority lists of investors at the moment, anda scary thought to encounter in one’s portfolio despite inflows of $5 Billion since September.
NTPC could well have started the way down an its bounceback probably is just an aberrant move. However give the broader markets would be at an index of 6250 before 11 AM, it is easier to plan for an index going up again tomorrow and traders would be wont to get their choice picks in banks with the Nifty at 11,750 on the Banknifty.
One hears of some news on Bharti but the stock is continuing a slow rally from its 300 lows to 340 levels probably unaffected (LV/18). Coal India also continues down after the new CERC guidelines.
Rumors of an apolitical volte face by the party in power with Nandan Nilekani following on Manmohan Singh’s tenure as PM and a Shashi Tharoor and few other young ministers, seem to be “TOI’ like incendiary flames on the post election fires. IT recedes as a defensive in rare down trades and shorts on HCL are probably the best way to cash in. Breakout innovtions apart, undoable extensions on the startup model like being attempted by Just Dial in enabling services are proven time and again to bleed out such fragile new businesses. Energy rice raionalisation continues with easy increases for LG distributors to match the new cost structures.
Most investors would accumulate ICICI Bank and Axis on shorts made today and shorts would probably exit at current levels. YES Bank remains an investment bet but policy is around the corner on Thursday next.
The Fitch warning on fiscal indiscipline is unfounded while the US sartups ranking updates IITs as a Top 10 force in the coming Economic rankings of the world. The Dollar Rupee however looks to be on the run to 61.50 and not 62 levels since Monday’s single Candle move up.
11 AM update: Exports have receded back to under $25 Bln and the deficit is a heartening $9.23 Bln with imports under $34 Bln, Rupee catching the worm before the 2-m/5pm RBI update for the reference rate, OIL bill fully paid and UCO (The Iran Bank) coffers full, Sajid and Ruchir fighting hard , taking turns to stick to their recessionary discipline induced by Bombay duck speculators in their circles waiting for the taper to break the straw on the Camel’s back.
Invisibles were a humongous $116 Bln as Samiran points out, only $20 Bln – $40 Bln from foreign inflows on a full year basis and Defence Imports aded to the trade deficit just $15 Bln, leading to a CAD score likely under $45 Bln. Oil is confirmed as having a lower tick in the second half of the year too. Non Oil data has dropped below $21 Bln from above $22-23 Bln in the prior months, an unhealthy increase)
Hopefully Stanchart traders have changed their call in time in the Q3 parts and there is liquidity following the bullish rupee trade outside notoriously trend lagging wealth bank forecasts(Julius Baer/Chris Wood week ago) trying for a share of the NDF trading volumes
Equities are in the meantime marking probably the time in FY15 when Gold and Silver imports at $1 bln in November , come back to pre curb levels
