The Indian market ended on a positive note, with the two main indices rising for a fifth consecutive session, as investors cheered a favourable ruling for the ruling UPA alliance and encouraging jobs reports for the US economy. However, the Standard & Poor's (S&P) warning on India's credit ratings and lack of progress in settling the long-running debt restructuring deal dampened the sentiment a wee bit. The NSE Nifty managed to close above the 5350 mark despite some intraday cooling while the BSE Sensex settled above 17,700.
The BSE Sensex ended at 17,595, up 102 points from the last close. It earlier touched a day's high of 17,829 and hit day's low of 17,595.
It was fifth straight day gain for markets, with the Sensex rising by 102 points and the Nifty up 36 points.

The winning streak continued for the fifth week in a row with the NSE Nifty and BSE Sense closing above the 5300 and the 17600 mark. The Nifty convincingly crossed its 200-DMA and has also closed above it for the past four sessions. The Sensex too has pierced the crucial technical barrier.
The BSE Realty, IT, Banking and the Auto index were among the major gainers. The current rally is stimulated on the back of a huge amount of foreign fund flow. The FIIs have pumped in over ~100bn in a month. However, things could get little trickier going forward as strong money flow is driving the current ascent. The US jobs data, outcome of Greece’s debt swap talks and the lower court’s verdict on P. Chidambaram’s alleged complicity in the 2G scam are among the events to keep on one’s radar in the immediate future.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. - Gandhi.
Happiness seems to be overflowing; this time even for the government. A lower court delivered a favourable verdict on the alleged complicity of P. Chidambaram in the 2G scam. Markets are likely to display similar relief today. The opening will be positive. Suddenly the prospects for equities seem to have brightened. FII inflows continue to be strong. The rupee too is gaining ground.
Hopes are also building on material improvement in governance and policy making. The Uttar Pradesh elections and the Union Budget will be two big events on the domestic calendar in the near term. Corporate earnings will continue to roll in for few more days.
The market may extend recent strong gains on firm Asian stocks. Trading of S&P CNX Nifty futures on the Singapore stock exchange indicates a gain of 50 points at the opening bell. Hindustan Unilever, National Aluminium Company and India Cements announce Q3 results today, 6 February 2012.

Hindustan Copper announced after market hours on Friday, 3 February 2012 that net profit fell 2% to Rs 79.14 crore on 12.2% rise in sales to Rs 344.58 crore in Q3 December 2011 over Q3 December 2010.
Five winning weeks in a row have clearly stunned most market players after last year’s disappointment. The Nifty has convincingly crossed its 200-DMA and has also closed above it for the past four sessions. The Sensex too has pierced the crucial technical barrier. The manner in which the market has rallied has raised expectations of more gains. However, one must not loose sight of the risks confronting the market – both domestic as well as external.
Things could get little trickier going forward as strong money flow is driving the current ascent. The US jobs data, outcome of Greece’s debt swap talks and the lower court’s verdict on P. Chidambaram’s alleged complicity in the 2G scam are among the events to keep on one’s radar in the immediate future.
One also has to see if the ongoing FII inflows persist or taper off. Although FY12 earnings have been discounted, any nasty surprise from results may also dampen the mood. One should tread carefully at this juncture, as the market could get pegged back again on any fresh bad news.
The rupee touched a three-month high versus the US dollar, with the sentiment getting a boost from robust FII inflows and continued rally in domestic stocks. A series of positive economic data in recent times have brought global investors back into riskier assets like emerging market equities and currencies. The rupee closed at 48.6950 to the dollar after being as high as 48.67 and as low as 49.1950. It opened at 49.1250 versus the previous close of 49.16. It has gained more than 8% in 2012. On a weekly basis, the rupee hit a high of 48.67 and a low of 49.81. It had closed at 49.31 on January 27. The Indian currency gained for a fifth consecutive week, the longest winning streak since Oct. 2010 on the back of strong FII inflows and better-than-expected manufacturing PMI data for January. The rupee advanced past 49 per dollar yesterday for the first time since November, as exchange data showed that FIIs poured in US$536mn into Indian shares in the first three days of this week. On Feb. 1, HSBC Holdings Plc and Markit Economics reported that India’s Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) rose to 57.5 in January from 54.2 in December. The HSBC Business Activity Index for the service sector, compiled by Markit, rose to 58.0 in January from 54.2 in December. January was the third month the services index has been above the 50-mark that separates growth from contraction. The euro headed for a weekly decline as Greece and its creditors struggle to reach an agreement on a debt swap. The yen traded near a postwar high versus the dollar, raising speculation that the country will intervene to weaken the Japanese currency. The euro slid against the yen. New Zealand’s dollar fell from a five-month high. Asian currencies were headed for a fifth weekly advance, led by Taiwan’s dollar, as foreign investors pumped fresh money into the region amid optimism that the global economy is holding up well. The Bloomberg-JPMorgan Asia Dollar Index was set for its longest weekly gains since Oct. 2010 after reports showed manufacturing in the US, China and Germany picked up in January. Most Asian currencies fell today as regional stocks snapped a three-day advance.
