The ancient Greek definition of happiness was the full use of your powers along lines of excellence.
Happiness and Excellence are reserved for Reliance Power, as the Rs117bn IPO was gone in 60 seconds. India's biggest public issue was fully subscribed within a minute of opening. Imagine, the FM, who has never commented on public issues, too had a quote to deliver – "It is a reflection of what the world thinks about the future of India."
But what about the future of the market? It's a sorry state for the bulls as of now. The persistent global weakness and liquidity crunch on account of mega IPOs could keep the sentiment weak. Remember, many heavyweights like Reliance and ONGC haven't fallen much. So, there is room for further fall. Banking on fresh buying today is wishful thinking. But it's a market all the same and nothing wrong in hoping for the best.
