Stock-specific activity may dominate trade amid Q2 results

Stock-specific activity may dominate trade in the near-term with the earnings season as its peak. Investors will closely watch the management commentary at the time of announcement of Q2 September 2011 results, which will provide cues on futures earnings outlook.

The week ahead is a truncated one as the stock market remains closed on Monday, 7 November 2011 on account of Bakri-Id and again on Thursday, 10 November 2011 on account of Gurunanak Jayanti.

Market corrects amid global volatility

The market corrected last week as the initial euphoria surrounding recent plan to contain the euro-zone debt crisis faded after Greek prime minister called a referendum on the bailout deal, risking a new euro-zone crisis. In Asia, data showed China's factory activity slowed to a near three-year low.

Situation, however, eased on Friday, 4 November 2011, after Greece shelved plans for a financial-bailout referendum. While a surprise interest-rate cut from the European Central Bank (ECB) also consoled investors.

Metal, cement stocks advance

Key benchmark indices edged higher amid intraday volatility after Pakistan on Friday, 4 November 2011, denied that it had backtracked on giving India Most Favoured Nation (MFN) trade status. Earlier, the market had slipped into the red for a brief period in afternoon trade soon after a news agency quoted an unnamed senior Indian government source as saying that Pakistan had backtracked since announcing earlier this week that it had granted India the status of Most Favoured Nation (MFN) in trade The BSE Sensex jumped 80.68 points or 0.46%, off about 140 points from the day's high and up close to 90 points from the day's low. The market breadth was positive. Index heavyweight Reliance Industries (RIL) edged lower in volatile trade. ONGC fell ahead of Q2 results.

Sensex ends static for 2nd straight session

Indian equity benchmarks closed virtually flat for the second day running, as investors chose to remain on the sidelines amid continued anxiety over the eurozone sovereign debt situation.

Confidence on the Street!

Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong. ~Peter T. Mcintyre.

The market will hope nothing goes wrong soon. For now, world markets are breathing little easy now that Greek’s PM has shelved the controversial plebiscite on the EU bailout. However, George Papandreou may still be in trouble as he braces for Friday’s confidence vote in parliament.

Indian indices will rise at start following a relief rally across global equities. But, the undertone may remain edgy over the ongoing political instability in Greece. Reports also suggest that Italian premier is under pressure to resign.

Markets may rise at start on good global cues

Signs that the referendum may be abandoned and a rate cut from the European Central Bank raised hopes for an easing of the region's debt crisis. Today’s start is likely to be on a positive note on strong global cues.
