Last Session overview 

Today’s movement in the Nifty was not totally unexpected. It was to be expected that the P-notes issue being eased and the CRR slash would lend a helping hand to the Nifty, which did happen because the Nifty opened with an upward gap of about 125 points. But the overall sentiment being negative, it was also to be expected that the market would eventually lose its way and come down, and that also did happen because at one point during the day the Nifty was down by as much as 50 points. But a final surge that lasted about an hour and a half took the Nifty back up to make it close with a gain of 4 points, thus making a doji for the day. (A doji, as explained in all previous newsletters, is a day where the opening price and the closing price is the same or is very close to each other. Such a candle has a non existent body but has a lower shadow and an upper shadow, the exception being gravestone dojis and dragonfly dojis where one of the shadows is also missing.) The BSE Sensex, not having the luxury of having 50 stocks in its composition and not having gainers like National Aluminium, Reliance Power, SAIL, Tata Communications and Zee Entertainment, closed about 106 points in the red.

World markets continue to be negative. Asian markets remained weak, European markets were, more or less, flat but the American and Latin American markets continue to trouble us. The Dow Jones, at the time of writing, was trading 290 points in the red while the Nasdaq Composite was almost 75 points down. Crude oil was trading at almost the same levels – $88 a barrel while the rupee versus the dollar is now touching almost 48. Gold continued to remain good – after a jump of $33 an ounce yesterday, it has gained another $24 today, obviously as demand for a safe haven increased and on speculation that the central banks may slash interest rates.
