Winners make a habit of manufacturing their own positive expectations in advance of the event.
Good morning. The Sensex has doubled in the shortest period in two decades. India Inc. seems to be in the pink of health, if the advance tax numbers are any indication. Fed chairman Ben Bernanke says the recession in the US is "very likely" over. Dollar remains weak amid a persistent bias towards risky assets. Commodities too are flaring up. To top it all, Warren Buffett says he is buying equities.
Banks led from the front as far as advance tax numbers and stock gains are concerned. There is also talk of the RBI raising the cap on securities held under the HTM category to help banks avoid MTM losses. RBI chief D. Subbarao says he will maintain the expansionary monetary policy till the recovery is "secured".
Expect another higher start, bolstered by firm global cues and potentially benign local economic conditions. As long as the FIIs keep the money taps open, the bulls can dance a little longer.
The biggest challenge for the RBI now is to plan an exit strategy. Similar concerns may be giving sleepless nights to central bankers around the globe. Hopefully, the G20 Summit will throw some light on this crucial matter.
US stocks ended at their highest level of the year on Tuesday after a stronger-than-expected retail sales report and comments from Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke helped bolster optimism that the worst is behind us.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 57 points, or 0.6%, at 9,683.41, ending at its highest point since last Oct. 6. The S&P 500 index rose 3 points, or 0.3%, at 1,052.63, ending at its highest point since Oct. 6. The Nasdaq Composite index climbed 11 points, or 0.5%, at 2,102.64, closing at its highest point since Sept. 26.
US stocks were choppy early in the morning but managed some gains in the afternoon on the back of encouraging remarks about the economy by Bernanke.
Stocks plummeted in the six months after the collapse of Lehman Brothers, culminating in the S&P 500 and Dow bottoming out at 12-year lows and the Nasdaq hitting a more than six-year low on March 9. Since March, the Dow has gained 47%, the S&P 500 gained 55% and the Nasdaq composite has gained 65%.
Year-over-year, the major US indexes are still down, with the Dow and S&P 500 roughly where they stood in early October of last year and the Nasdaq where it stood about a week earlier, in late September.
Financial, industrial and select commodity stocks led the advance on Tuesday. Other than a little selling in the first few days of September, US stocks have been extending the 2009 run.
The feeling of being left out among some of the investors sitting on the sidelines could continue to support the advance on every dip and is likely to keep doing so in the weeks ahead.
Speaking at the Brookings Institution in Washington, Bernanke said that the recession is "very likely over," but that the pace of the recovery will be moderate next year and that it will still feel like a weak economy for some time.

Best Buy reported weaker quarterly earnings that missed analysts' forecasts on higher revenue. The company also said that sales at stores open a year or more fell 3.9% in the fiscal second quarter.
The company's forecast was mixed. Best Buy lifted its fiscal 2010 earnings outlook to a range of $2.70 to $3 per share, but that means the midpoint of $2.75 is short of analysts' current forecast for earnings of $2.76 per share.
The electronics retailer also said it expects total revenue of $48 billion to $49 billion, versus analysts' forecasts for $47.8 billion. Best Buy shares fell 5%.
