We recommend a buy in GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals from a short-term horizon.

Our natures are a lot like oil, mix us with anything else, and we strive to swim on top.
After nearly drowning in troubled waters, the bulls will be happy to swim on top. The burning issue has been oil among other things and the two-day slump in oil prices is sure to provide a soothing effect Crude futures in New York are down more than $9 per barrel in two days. Though oil prices are still pretty high, the decline is a big positive, at least in the short term.
Barring Europe, most world markets rallied on the back of sharply lower oil prices. The Federal Reserve's decision to extend its emergency lending facility to banks also helped allay some concerns over possibility of more asset write-downs. Of course there are different ways to interpret the Fed’s move. Asian markets are up by 1.5-3.5% this morning, with the Hang Seng leading from the front.
As far as the local situation is concerned, the political storm seems to have subsided with most events playing out as anticipated. The Left parties have finally called it quits from the UPA. But, the Congress appears confident as it has the support of the SP and other smaller parties. The fact that the Centre has called for the "Trust Vote" before the IAEA meet underlines the new-found confidence in the ruling coalition.
Still, the number game will be close and there could be some surprises. An early election is more or less out of the equation now. In politics and markets expect anything though. What remains to be seen is whether the nuclear deal can be finalised before the Bush regime is out of office.
The Indian market heaved a sigh of relief and recovered from the lows of the day. And, with the global markets rallying smartly, the bulls will seek to settle some scores with the bears. We expect a positive opening. What is not certain is whether the gains can be extended further. Fresh bad news can hit the markets anytime and reverse most of the gains. Much will hinge on a confluence of local as well as global factors, primarily crude oil prices and outlook for the western financial sector.
India Inc. will start rolling out their latest quarterly numbers. With expectations of further earnings slowdown already reflected in stock prices, the bulls may decide to chart their own course unless the results are really bad. Positive surprises will of course get a warm welcome.

Gold prices slip but silver gains as dollar remains strong
Pressured by the US dollar, bullion metals fell today, Tuesday, 08 July, 2008. Crude prices drastically falling today for the second straight day also led to lower bullion metal prices. The increase in energy costs generally increase demand for the precious metal as a hedge against inflation. But silver prices gained for the day.
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.
Comex Gold for August delivery fell $5.5 (0.65%) to close at $923.3 ounce on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Earlier during the day, it dropped to as much low as $914. Last week, it ended higher by $2.3 (0.3%). On 17 March, 2008 prices had skyrocketed to a high of $1,034/ounce. But prices have dropped since then.
The weakening dollar and higher global demand for raw materials have led to records this year for commodities including gold. 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.
Gold prices ended June, 2008 with a gain of 4.1%. The yellow metal ended second quarter with a marginal gain of 0.7% yesterday. In May, it ended with a gain of higher by $22.5 (2.5%). Before May, for April, prices closed lower by 6.3%.
This year, gold prices have gained 10% till date against a 5% drop for the dollar against the euro. 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%.
Today, Comex silver futures for September delivery gained 3 cents (0.03%) to $17.95 an ounce. Silver has gained 20% in 2008 till date. It ended last week higher by 3.8%. For the second quarter, it gained a paltry 1.4%.
Silver prices ended the month of May 2008 with a gain of 2.7%. For April, it closed lower by 5.5%. Silver had 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.
At the currency markets on Tuesday, putting pressure on commodities were gains in the U.S. dollar. The greenback was boosted by comments made by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, who said the Fed may extend its lending facilities into next year. The dollar index which measures the U.S. unit against a basket of major currencies, stood at 72.99, compared with 72.67 ahead of Bernanke's speech.
During last week of June, Federal Reserve yesterday sharpened its focus on inflation, saying that the upside risks to inflation have increased. Fed held its target for short-term interest rates steady at 2%.
Since last September, Fed has axed interest rates seven times and brought it down to 2%. On the other hand, after keeping interest rates unchanged at 4% since June, 2007, ECB hiked the same to 4.25% last week.

Gold had witnessed the greatest annual gain in twenty eight years by gaining $200/ounce (31%) in FY 2007 as lower interest rates had sent the dollar tumbling, and crude-oil prices rose to a record. In 2006, silver had jumped 46% while gold gained 23%.

The change was based on prospects for a weak economy and record high crude oil and product prices extending into 2009.
The EIA also reported that global oil consumption will grow by 900,000 barrels a day in 2008, as demand growth in developing countries will more than offset declines in the U.S. and other developed countries. The EIA projected that crude-oil prices will average $127 per barrel in 2008 and $133 per barrel in 2009.
