The big story for the coming week will of course be the mega Coal India IPO which opens on Monday. Meanwhile, the volatile consolidation phase continues in the Indian market. Investors seem to be treading cautiously given that we are in the midst of the earnings season. Also, some cooling was expected as last month's rally had left the market a little overheated. So, after five straight weeks of advance, which lifted the key indices near their all-time highs, we have seen a minor pullback over the last two weeks. Still, the bulls almost pulled off new highs in the middle of this week when the Sensex soared by nearly 500 points only to retreat in the next two sessions.
The price band for the Coal India Ltd. IPO has been fixed at Rs225-245 a share, Union Coal Minister Sriprakash Jaiswal said in New Delhi. The Government could raise as much as US$3.5bn at this price. The Government is selling roughly 631.6 million Coal India shares, or 10% of the company, in what is touted to be the largest share sale in the country. The IPO opens on Oct. 18 and closes on Oct. 21. Coal India will list on November 4. Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, Kotak Mahindra Capital, Enam Securities, Deutsche Bank, and Bank of America-Merrill Lynch are the lead managers for the IPO. Employees of Coal India and the retail investors will get a 5% discount.

The Asian market moved slightly lower today, giving up some of their gains recorded earlier in the week as the US dollar garnered some gains and the weak unemployment data from the US hurt risk appetite of the global investors. The US markets ended nominally in red last night but were off their five-month highs. Initial claims for unemployment aid rose by 13,000 to a seasonally adjusted 462,000, the U.S. Labor Department said yesterday and the markets summed it up as an indication that high unemployment will continue to drag on an already weak recovery in the world's largest economy.
