Overnight cues cap buying, investors seek more cues on European front
Asian markets ended mixed as the US dollar came off its four-month lows and commodities edged marginally upwards. The overnight cues were negative though and the buying enthusiasm was mostly curbed as investors sought out more clarity on the Euro zone debt issues. US stocks continued to turn lower as investors took a wait-and-see approach ahead of the unofficial kickoff of earnings season after the close. Marking its third straight session of declines, the Dow dropped 37.31 points, or 0.3%, to 11,637.45.
Key benchmark indices edged lower in a choppy trade to hit six-week closing lows. The market sentiment was edgy due to recent heavy selling by foreign funds and on continued worries the central bank may hike interest rates to tame inflation. The BSE 30-share Sensex was down 27.78 points or 0.14%, up close to 190 points from the day's low and off close to 240 points from the day's high. The market breadth was weak, having swung between positive and negative zone throughout the day. European stocks rose. Most Asian stocks edged higher.

Nothing unexpectedly earthshaking has happened in recent times but the bulls are feeling the earth move below their feet. FIIs seem to be increasing their withdrawals after pumping in a record US $29bn last year. The only thing that seems to be adding up is fears of inflation.
As if Friday's ferocious slide was not enough, the bulls got yet another jolt at the start of the new week on Monday that too on another heavy volume day. So quite clearly, the bulls continue to be under tremendous pressure as FIIs slowly take some profit off the table after last year's solid gains.
The start on the Dalal Street is expected to be flat tracking mixed Asian cues. With the markets being in the oversold territory, it is expected to bounce back a bit
