The Indian stock markets weakened ahead of the F&O expiry on Thursday, as market players remained wary of near-term prospects amid a spate of headwinds. The undercurrent continues to be jittery over the impact of the proposed GAAR tax regulations on FII investments through Mauritius and via Participatory Notes (PNs). Barring a brief period in the morning session, the indices were under pressure almost throughout the session. As usual, the selling accelerated in the afternoon, with the benchmarks hitting new lows before recovering by the close of trade. Reported clarifications on GAAR tax regulations and soothing words from the FM on the vexed issue may have calmed some frayed nerves. However, the uncertainties do not end here. As a result, the market is unlikely to heave a sigh of relief until the matter is settled. The sudden drop in FII inflows in the past couple of sessions is testimony of escalating tension on the GAAR issue. The BSE Sensex ended at 17,122, down 135 points or ~0.8% over the previous close. It had earlier touched a day’s low of 17,040 and a day’s high of 17,245. It opened at 17,234. The NSE Nifty settled at 5,194, down 48 points or 1% over the previous close. It earlier touched a day’s low of 5,170 and day’s high of 5,236.
"Force, violence, pressure, or compulsion with a view to conformity, are both uncivilized and undemocratic". - Mahatma Gandhi. There is no dearth of pressure at the moment as far as Indian markets are concerned. Be it the stocks, bonds or the rupee. All assets are under pressure. The macro-economic scenario is not looking rosy. Inflation is likely to stay elevated even as uncertainty continues over the RBI’s call on interest rates. The Government’s borrowing calendar for H1 FY13 has sent benchmark 10-year bond yields to three-month high amid lingering worries over high fiscal deficit. The rupee is also on sticky wicket amid rising twin deficits and falling forex reserves. The confusion over GAAR tax norms and P-Notes has only dimmed the near-term prospects for our markets. Usual intraday gyrations are a given on F&O expiry day. The overall bias is likely to be negative. The opening will be down owing to weak global cues. US stocks dropped following a lower-than-expected report on durable goods orders. Asian markets are mostly in the red. European indices also finished lower ahead of yet another EU summit. Euro area members are likely to boost the financial firewall to rein in the credit crisis. The NSE Nifty managed to close above the crucial support of 200 DMA, which is currently placed at 5153 levels. The rising support line was violated on intraday basis but with the closing above 5180 levels the trendline support remains intact. The positive reaction for the Nifty would be reaffirmed with a move above 5230 levels. Till then, the critical trading range will be 5150-5230.
