Despite weak global cues the Sensex resumed 60 points above its previous close and hit the all-time high of 21,207 by afternoon.

The Indian market is likely to have positive opening as the cues from the US market is in favor. Yesterday, the market closed on a negative note after coming off sharply from the higher levels in the final trading hours of the session. The Sensex after a flat opening dipped down by taking negative cues from the global markets but managed to recover towards the mid session to touch an intraday high of 21,113.13. The BSE Mid Caps and Small Caps stocks remained out of favor as most selling was seen from these baskets. The BSE Sensex closed with marginal loss of 3.55 points at 20,869.78 and NSE Nifty closed lower by 15.85 points at 6,272. We expect that the market may remain range bound during the trading session and volatility may rule the market.
On Wednesday, the US market closed in positive territory. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) grew by 146.24 points to close at 12,735.31 along with S&P 500 index by 18.94 points at 1,409.13 and NASDAQ by 34.04 points at 2,474.55.
Indian ADRS closed in positive. In technology sector, Patni computers rose by 2.84% along with Infosys by 2.07% and Satyam by 0.04%. In banking sector, HDFC bank and ICICI bank grew by (3.49%) and (2.95%) respectively. VSNL inched up by (0.18%).
The major stock markets in Asia are trading mixed. Hang Seng is trading lower by 110.38 points at 27,505.47. Japan''s Nikkei is trading down by 116.94 points at 14,482.22 while Taiwan Weighted is trading up by 70.15 points at 8,155.21.
On Wednesday, the FIIs stood as net buyer both in equity and in debt. The gross equity purchased was Rs5,529.90 Crore and the gross debt purchased was Rs744 Crore while the gross equity sold stood at Rs4,476.50 Crore and gross debt sold stood at Rs86.80 Crore. Therefore, the net investment of equity reported was Rs1053.40 Crore and net debt was Rs657.20 Crore.
Today, Nifty has support at 6,182 and resistance at 6,357 and BSE Sensex has support at 20,548 and resistance at 21,149.
The key trigger for the domestic market in the near term is earnings surprises. Some of the top brokerages expect slowdown in earnings growth of 30-Sensex firms in Q3 December 2007.
Interestingly, the market has been hitting record highs almost everyday notwithstanding an expected slowdown in earnings growth. Expectation of pick up in FII inflow is perhaps keeping the market firm.
With the beginning of the new calendar year, FIIs are expected to make fresh fund allocations. FIIs pumped in Rs 71486.50 crore or $17.23 billion in Indian equities in calendar year 2007.
As per provisional data, FIIs sold shares worth a net Rs 392 crore on Wednesday, 9 January 2008. Domestic funds bought shares worth a net Rs 85.51 crore on that day.
FIIs were net sellers to the tune of Rs 889.98 crore in the futures & options segment on Wednesday. According to data released by the NSE, FIIs were net sellers of index futures to the tune of Rs 533.28 crore and bought index options worth Rs 195.28 crore. They were net sellers of stock futures to the tune of Rs 556.03 crore and bought stock options worth Rs 4.05 crore.
Even as Sensex has been hitting record highs, small-cap and mid-cap shares have witnessed profit taking in the last two days as investors are staying in cash to subscribe to the mega IPO of Reliance Power which opens for subscription next week.
Stock-specific activity may rule the roost in the near term based on expectations of results of individual firms. Telecom sector is expected to continue to post strong earnings growth in Q3 December 2007 on the back of rising new subscriber additions whereas healthy order book will ensure that capital goods firms such as Larsen & Toubro and Bharat Heavy Electricals will turn out good performance for yet another quarter.
Media sector, too, is expected to post decent to strong growth on the back of higher advertisement rates. On the other hand, the IT sector is likely to be hit by the appreciation of the rupee against the dollar.
Steel sector is expected to show strong growth on the back of volume growth and higher price realizations. The performance of the auto sector is expected to be sluggish due to sluggish sales and pressure on margins on account of higher input costs. The banking sector is expected see increase in margins due to cut in deposit rates, and higher fee based income. Increase in costs and dismal volume growth is expected to weight on the performance of the cement sector.
IT bellwether Infosys Technologies kickstarts the reporting season on Friday, 11 January 2008.

The Nasdaq Composite Index surged 34.04 points, or 1.39%, at 2,474.55.

If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there.
The markets seem to be going nowhere. But stocks are hitting extreme ends during intra-day trade. Expected volatility is on as the results season has kicked off. Infosys will declare its results tomorrow and other software biggies will follow suit next week. The IT sector has lost its charm over the past few months, with a confluence of headwinds (a strong rupee being the topmost) weakening the outlook for the industry. Not many brokerages are gung-ho about the IT sector though some expect mid-cap IT firms to prop up. There could be some positive surprise in store that could revive interest in these stocks temporarily. We expect a cautious to slightly positive opening today and another choppy day. Counters like ITC can be picked up at lower levels for investment purpose. RNRL may see wild swings on expectations of a court verdict today.
Coming to the broader market, earnings from the old economy space will also be critical if the bulls are to retain their hold over the market. As will be the global factors and trend in money flows. Over the last couple of days a lot of small- and mid-cap shares have been hammered. Whether this is a larger trend or just a temporary blip remains to be seen. One must remain highly alert and take an honorable exit from stocks that have rallied purely on speculative activity. Among the other concern is that the market breadth was negative yesterday and the volume too was sharply down from Tuesday. As the market adjusts to swings and sideways movement, make sure you know where you and your stocks are going.

With the help of Financial and Technology stocks, US stock market made a sudden but modest comeback today, Wednesday, 09 January, 2008 and all the three indices closed higher simultaneously for the first time in FY 2008. The stock market oscillated between positive and negative territory for the entire day. At the end, each of the ten economic sectors finished in positive territory.

Precious metals register modest gain anticipating another interest rate cut
Gold struck another record new high during intra day trading today, Wednesday, 09 January, 2008 but then ended marginally higher at the close. Gold rose on speculation that the Federal Reserve will continue to cut interest rates during the end of this month thus weakening the dollar further. Gold prices struck a new all time record yesterday as oil prices increased and dollar traded mixed against its rivals. Increasing tensions between US and Iran had also added to the rally. Silver prices too gained today.
Gold generally moves in the opposite direction of the U.S. currency. Gold, as a dollar-denominated commodity, suffers from dollar strength.
Comex Gold for February delivery today rose $1.4 (0.16%) to close at $881.7 an ounce on the New York Mercantile Exchange. During intraday trading prices rose as high as $894.4/ounce. Last week, gold prices gained $23/ounce (2.7%). This year, prices have gained 5.3% till date.
Yesterday gold prices had closed at $880/ounce. That closing price was the highest price after a record $873 that gold hit on 21 January, 1980.
Comex Silver futures for March delivery today rose 2.5 cents (0.2%) to $15.84 an ounce. Prices touched 26 year high on 7 November, 2007, after reaching $16.275. Silver has gained 6.1% in 2008. The metal had climbed 15.5% in FY 2007. The metal also has gained for seven straight years.
Gold witnessed the greatest annual gain in twenty eight years by gaining $200/ounce (31%) in FY 2007. In 2006, silver had jumped 46% while gold gained 23%.
In the currency market today, the dollar index, which measures the value of the U.S. currency against a basket of six major currencies, gained as much as 0.5% today to 76.50.
In the energy market today crude oil crude oil fell after an Energy Department report showed that U.S. fuel stockpiles surged last week as refineries bolstered operating rates.
Gold has traditionally been used as a safe-haven asset against rising inflation. Investor sentiments are boosted by the fact that gold and silver are alternate sources of good investment in the face of declining dollar and rising energy prices. Rising crude increases inflationary pressures and vice versa. On the other hand strong dollar reduces the appeal of the metal as alternate source of investment.
Gold had climbed 31% in FY 2007 as lower interest rates had sent the dollar tumbling, and crude-oil prices rose to a record.
The Fed reduced federal funds rate three times in FY 2007. The current interest rate stands at 4.5%. The Fed also lowered its discount rate twice, the interest it charges on direct loans it makes to banks, and currently it stands at 4.75%. With these interest rate cuts, dollar has been tumbling down. Market anticipates that there will be more rate cut in the coming year.
Gold is expected to rally to all-time highs in the first quarter in FY 2008 as higher oil prices and a weaker dollar will continue to boost demand. Market expects another phase of interest rate cut in the end of the month. But gold is slated to average around $800/ounce in FY 2008 as against $696/ounce in FY 2007.
Tata Motors of India will soon unveil a $2,500 car that is a not only a marvel of low-cost manufacture but a novel business model innovation. The “People’s Car” (this nickname sounds like the original Beetle, right?) is the latest incarnation of India’s ability to change the way business is organized and managed to produce low-priced products services for people at the Bottom of the Pyramid. India is pioneering in low-cost eye surgeries, low-cost telecom services and low-cost retailing (with tiny sachets of shampoo and other products).
My own concerns about the $2,500 car is that Tata didn’t go far enough. Putting millions of additional cars on India’s terrible roads will cause a nightmare of even more pollution and crowding. If India and China follow the Western model in lifting their people out of poverty into the middle class, global warming can only become much worse. This may not be fair to Indians and Chinese but it is, alas, probably true.

What's wrong with these people who write about it like this ? Every country has the right the follow to what is best for them. Telecom became a revolution in India because Reliance Communications came with a cheap phone or what Deccan Aviation did to the airline industry. It might do the same to the car industry. As for safety standards, I am sure a Plastic car with limited speed would be much safer than a 80 Km/hr two wheeler.
We have the right to innovate and will do it in our way ! He should probably look at their Global Warming stats before commenting on India ! What say!
