The Indian markets closed on a firm note on the back of heavy buying towards the end of the session. Though the market opened on a disappointing note due to the mixed cues from the global markets but gathered the momentum after the mid session to keep on marching forward to close with good gains. From the sectoral front, the metal stocks remained in the limelight as most buying was seen from these baskets. The market breadth was positive as 1425 stocks closed in green while 1239 stocks closed in red.
The BSE Sensex closed higher by 225.49 points at 16,978.35 and NSE Nifty closed up by 53.95 points at 5,011.75. It touched an intraday high of 17,014.94 and low of 16,626.35. The BSE Mid Cap and Small Cap closed higher by 33 points and 36.78 points at 6,989.81 and 8,434.49 respectively.

The Sensex commenced 62 points lower at 16,691 and plummeted below 16,650 mark on relentless selling to touch the day's low of 16,626. However, resumption of buying in late morning trades saw the index drift into positive territory and gain strength thereafter. The market witnessed a sharp pull back after short covering by investors triggered a major rally in heavyweight, metal, IT and CD stocks. Recovery in other major Asian indices like Hang Seng and Straits Times followed by Nikkei, Kospi and Jakarta coming off their early slump also helped the market turnaround from its early crash. The Sensex breached 17,000 levels in noon trades to touch an intra-day high of 17,015 before selective selling saw it came close to slip below the 17,000 mark. However, renewed buying towards the fang end ensured the Sensex move past 16,950 mark and end the session with a surge of 225 points at 16,978. Nifty rose 54 points to close at 5,012.
Among sectoral indices, BSE Metal index led the surge with gains of 4.36% at 16,435 followed by BSE IT index (up 3.80% at 4,427) and BSE CD index (up 3.19% at 3,487). However, the BSE PSU index, the BSE Oil & Gas and BSE FMCG were the losers. The market breadth was postive. Of the 2,749 stocks traded on the BSE 1,395 stocks advanced, 1,266 stocks declined and 88 stocks ended unchanged.
Out of 30 Sensex stocks, 22 managed to end in the green, while 8 stocks ended with losses. Tata Consultancy Services was the leading gainer and soared 7.09% at Rs969.95, Hindlaco advanced 6.86% at Rs192.30, Infosys moved up by 4.53% at Rs1,826.30, Tata Steel jumped 4.12% at Rs886.35, Maruti shot up by 3.13% at Rs797.20, Bharti Airtel added 3.31% at Rs848.40 and Reliance Energy was marginally up at Rs1,424.55.

Over 7.90 crore Aishwarya Telecom shares changed hands on the BSE followed by IFCI (1.72 crore shares), Idea Cellular (1.52 crore shares), Ispat Industries (1.48 crore shares) and Reliance Petroleum (1.31 crore shares).
Frenzied buying in software and metal stocks in late trade propelled market higher after a nervous start. Asian markets, which opened before Indian market, saw steady recovery throughout the day after a shaky start. European markets, which opened after Indian market, were mixed. IT pivotals gained as rupee weakened to 13-month low against the dollar. Metal stocks gained on fresh buying. The S&P CNX Nifty settled above physcological level of 5,000. However the BSE Sensex failed to close above 17,000 level.
The 30-share BSE Sensex surged 225.49 points or 1.36% at 16,978.35. Sensex advanced 262.08 points at day’s high of 17,014.94 in mid-afternoon trade.

The BSE Mid-Cap index rose 0.41% to 6,989.81 while the BSE Small-Cap index gained 0.44% to 8,434.49. Both these indices underperformed the Sensex.

Among the 30-member Sensex pack, 21 advanced while the rest slipped.
Hindalco Industries, the country’s largest private sector aluminium company in terms of sales, galloped 7.59% to Rs 193.60 on 17.22 lakh shares. It was the top gainer from Sensex pack.
Other metal counters, Tata Steel (up 4.52% to Rs 889.80), Hindustan Zinc (up 17.93% to Rs 738.80), Sterlite Industries (up 4.77% to Rs 857.25), JSW Steel (up 4.23% to Rs 1000.10), advanced.
IT stocks rallied as rupee weakened to 13-month low above 42 against the dollar. TCS (up 7.07% to Rs 969.70), Infosys Technologies (up 4.73% to Rs 1829.90), and Wipro (up 1.61% to Rs 502.15), surged. A depreciating rupee augurs well for IT companies as they derive over 50% of their revenues from exports to US.
However India’s fourth largest software services exporter Satyam Computer Services tumbled from day’s high of Rs 515.75 hit in late trade to settle 1.15% lower at Rs 490.25.

Bharti Airtel, the country’s top cellular services provider in terms of market capitalisation advanced 3.50% to Rs 850. Bharti Airtel on Tuesday, 13 May 2008, said its talks for South Africa's MTN were still exploratory and it has not made any bid.
The Asian Wall Street Journal said on Monday, 12 May 2008, that Bharti was considering raising its offer to around 175 South African rand ($22.84) a share for control of MTN.

Meanwhile, the board of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) in its meeting held yesterday, 13 May 2008, gave an in principle approval to the concept of marking lien on bank account as an alternative mode of payment in public and rights issues. The concept will enable the application money to remain in the bank account of the applicant till such time the allotment is finalized and thus eliminate the refund process.
We recommend a sell in IndusInd Bank from a short-term perspective. It is evident from the charts that the stock was on a medium-term uptrend between late March 2008 and early May 2008, from its a low of Rs 68 to an high of Rs 105. After finding resistance around Rs 105, the stock reversed direction and began to decline.
On May 12, the stock breached the medium-term up trendline. The stock witnessed moving average compression at around Rs 90 levels and has now penetrated these average lines. The daily and the weekly momentum indicators are declining in the neutral region.
The stock appears to have resumed the long-term downtrend and we are also bearish on it in the short-term. We expect the stock’s down move to continue until it hits our price target of Rs 74 in the upcoming trading sessions. Investors with short-term perspective can sell the stock while keeping the stop-loss at Rs 90.
Investors no longer have to wait for weeks for refund of their IPO application money.
The application money earmarked for an IPO will now remain in the applicant’s bank account till the allotment is finalised, thus eliminating the refund process, SEBI said on Tuesday, addressing a long-standing grouse among investors, particularly in the retail segment.
“The modalities in this regard would be worked out separately,” said a news release from SEBI, issued after its Board met on Tuesday.
“The Board approved, in principle, the concept of making lien on bank account as an alternative mode of payment in public/rights issues.”
This means that the money marked for the IPO will not be used for any other payment obligation during that period.
At the same time, the applicant will enjoy the interest payable on the amount.
This would also reduce the burden on registrars and merchant bankers. But bankers to the issue can no longer enjoy the floating interest, said officials associated with the IPO process.
Most important of all, investors would not have to wait for their refund money. It also ensures that a liquidity crisis such as that of January 2008 does not occur again.
At that time, many investors were unable to buy scrips which were at attractive lows, as their money was locked up in the Reliance Power and the Future Capital IPOs. Nor could they meet their margin money requirements.
PMs – NO POOLING
The SEBI Board also decided to disallow the pooling of investors’ money by portfolio managers.
“Portfolio managers should not float a scheme or pool the resources of the client in a way which is akin to mutual fund activity,” said SEBI.
They have been allowed six months’ time to convert their operations managed on pooled basis to individual basis.
The Board also decided to enhance the minimum net worth requirement for registration of portfolio managers from the existing Rs 50 lakh to Rs 2 crore in a phased manner.
Gold and silver prices close lower as the dollar climbs up
Precious metals ended significantly lower on Tuesday, 13 May, 2008. Dollar strengthening up against its rivals was the main reason behind this.
Gold has traditionally been used as a safe-haven asset against rising inflation. Investor sentiments are boosted by the fact that gold and silver are alternate sources of good investment in the face of declining dollar and rising energy prices. Dollar weakness typically benefits dollar-denominated commodities, such as gold and crude oil, because it makes them cheaper for holders of other currencies. On the other hand strong dollar reduces the appeal of the metal as alternate source of investment.
Comex Gold for June delivery fell $15.3 (1.7%) to close at $869.6 ounce on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Last week, gold prices ended higher by $3.2 ($27.8). On 17 March, 2008 prices had skyrocketed to a high of $1,034/ounce.
This year, gold prices have gained 4.3% for the till date against a 8% drop for the dollar against the euro. For April, prices closed lower by 6.3%. For first quarter prices gained 10.7%. In January, prices gained 11%, the highest monthly gain since April 2006. For February, it gained 6%. But in March, prices succumbed and fell by 5.5%.
Comex Silver futures for July delivery fell 40 cents (2%) to $16.83 an ounce. Silver has gained 12.8% in 2008 till date. For April, it closed lower by 5.5%. Silver gained 16% in Q1. In January this year itself, prices climbed 14%. In February, it gained another 15%. For March, it ended lower by 13%. The metal had climbed 16% in FY 2007. The metal also has gained for seven straight years.
On the currency markets on Tuesday, the U.S. dollar climbed against other major currencies after the Commerce Department reported better-than-expected April retail sales. The euro extended losses against the dollar and traded at $1.5482, down from late Monday.
Commerce Department reported today that U.S. retail sales fell for the third time in the past five months in April, led by a big decline in auto sale, but were slightly stronger than the 0.3% drop expected.
In the crude market, crude futures closed higher as issues over Iranian oil production, uncertainty ahead of weekly data on U.S. inventories and a rally in heating oil prices combined to briefly lift oil to uncharted territory near $127 a barrel.
Generally, a stronger dollar pressures demand for dollar-denominated commodities, such as crude oil and gold, which become more expensive for holders of other currencies. On the other hand, a lower dollar pushes up precious metal prices as their demand lessens as it becomes cheaper for traders holding other currencies.
At the MCX, gold prices for June delivery closed lower by Rs 133 (1.1%) at Rs 11,828 per 10 grams. Prices rose to a high of Rs 11,951 per 10 grams and fell to a low of Rs 11,731 per 10 grams during the day’s trading.
