In an open letter to the government published after data showed inflation hit a 16-year high of 4.7 percent in August, King said the level of interest rates needed to get inflation back to target was "highly uncertain" and he expected to have to write several more such letters in the next year.

We recommend a buy in Aban Offshore from a short-term perspective. It is clearly visible from the charts of Aban Offshore that its intermediate-term downtrend which began in late May from Rs 4,292 appears to have halted at around Rs 2,015 during late August. However, the stock reversed direction, after finding support at Rs 2,015 in late August. This stock’s reversal had been supported by a prolonged positive divergence in the daily moving average convergence and divergence, which is heading towards the positive territory. On September 4, the stock penetrated its intermediate-term down trendline by surging 5 per cent with good volume. Subsequently, the stock crossed over its 21-day moving average gaining bullish momentum and is trading above this average. We notice a hammer candlestick formation on September 15, which is a bullish pattern supporting our view. The daily relative strength index (RSI) is rising towards the bullish zone and the weekly RSI is likely to enter the neutral region. Our short-term forecast for the stock is bullish. We expect the stock to trend upward until it hits our price target of Rs 2,550 in the forthcoming trading sessions. Traders with short-term perspective can buy the stock while maintaining a stop-loss at Rs 2,195.

Lehman Brothers’ bankruptcy is likely to cost Indian real estate dear. It may impact the financial major’s existing investments worth $500 million in realty firms, including DLF and Unitech, besides drying up another $500-million worth of potential investment which was expected to flow into Unitech’s Mumbai projects.
The news of Lehman’s collapse brought the BSE realty index down by 7.65% on Monday, while the benchmark Sensex declined 3.35%. Both DLF and Unitech fell 7.5%.
Lehman’s fall signals a deepening of credit crisis for Indian developers, who have lately been battling falling sales, rising cost of construction and tightening credit. It is expected that the US-based firm is likely to go for a fire sale of its assets.
The financial services major was very bullish on India and was among the active investors in Indian real estate. Early this year, it had leased out an office space in Mumbai paying Rs 1 crore per month as rental. This would divert a part of fresh funds seeking to invest in Indian realty.
This is because global fund houses have country-allocations. And as they buyout Lehman’s stake in some of the Indian assets, they will end up diverting some of the fresh funds-in-hand to existing assets rather than investing in new projects.
“Lehman’s departure will impact future cash flows of real estate companies. In a market situation like today’s, it will be all the more difficult for the firms to raise funds,” says Karvy Stock Broking vice-president Ambareesh Baliga.
Lehman invested $200 million in DLF promoter group company DLF Assets last year and bought 50% stake in Unitech’s Mumbai project for $175 million a few months ago. It had also invested $80 million in Bangalore-based SEZ Gandhi City and was likely to hike its share to $300 million.
Lehman’s other investments include a 40% stake in an IT park project of Peninsula Land in Hyderabad for an initial investment of Rs 50 crore. It had also teamed up with Mumbai-based developer HDIL to bid for the redevelopment of Asia’s largest slum Dharavi.
Wherever the developers had received fund, they are safe. But where the funds are yet to come, the developers could get stuck. Some analysts say a distress sale by Lehman will impact the valuation of existing projects.
DLF CFO Ramesh Sanka had earlier told ET that Lehman’s sale of investments in DAL would not impact DAL’s valuation. Unitech MD Sanjay Chandra said that his company had already received funds. So, the company won’t get impacted by Lehman’s bankruptcy.
Some industry executives say that FDI norms of a three-year lock-in period may prevent Lehman from making an immediate sale. But analysts argue that the lock-in period in case of bankruptcy may not hold.

The US is in a "once-in-a-century" financial crisis and chances of it escaping a recession next year is less than 50 percent, former Chairman of Federal Reserve Alan Greenspan said on Sunday.
Greenspan, whose voice and views carry tremendous weight still on Wall Street, argued that it is not in the best interests of either financial industry or that of the economy to have the government getting involved in the short-selling in the financial institutions until the situation stabilised.
"If you had pressed me the last time I was here, I would say very unlikely," Greenspan told ABC News when asked on the prospect of the United States escaping recession next year.
"The remarkable thing is now the non-financial part of the economy is done...we've gone through a period of long-term interest rates being very low, and that enabled corporate sector and business generally to take its short-term liabilities and fund them into longer-term liabilities at low interest rates," he said.
Asked if the chances of escaping a recession now is greater than 50 percent, Greenspan said, "No, I think it's less than 50 percent. I can't believe we could have a once-in-a-century type of financial crisis without a significant impact on the real economy globally, and I think that indeed is what is in the process of occurring."
Greenspan was asked that against a backdrop of failure of the mortgage giants, in the folding of Bear Stearns and now with the crisis at Lehman Brothers, whether America is going to witness to more financial institutions failing.
"I suspect we will. But in and of it that does not need to be a problem. It depends on how it is handled and how the liquidations take place. And indeed we shouldn't try to protect every single institution," he said.
Oil prices plunged on Monday to seven-month lows below USD 93 on prospects of weaker energy demand amid a worsening global financial crisis after Lehman Brothers' bankruptcy, analysts said.
In London, Brent North Sea crude for delivery in October tumbled USD 4.81 to USD 92.77 a barrel -- the lowest level since February.
New York's main contract, light sweet crude for October, dived USD 5.26 to USD 95.82 a barrel.
"Turmoil in the financial markets hurt sentiment and reinforced concerns about weaker oil demand growth," said Sucden analyst Michael Davies in London.
Oil prices were also weighed down by news that damage to US oil platforms caused by Hurricane Ike had not been as bad as feared, analysts said.
US officials said that Ike, which slammed the US Gulf Coast on Saturday, had damaged about 10 oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico where major energy installations are located.
"The initial perception is that there hasn't been much structural damage to oil and refinery infrastructure," said David Moore, a Sydney-based commodity strategist with the Commonwealth Bank of Australia.
Crude prices are down by more than a third in value from record levels of above USD 147 reached in July, as investors grow increasingly pessimistic about weakening energy demand amid signs the global economy is slowing down.
Fuelling investors' concerns was the announcement today that Lehman Brothers would file for bankruptcy after the investment bank, in desperate need of capital injection, failed to find a buyer.
Global stock markets plunged between three and seven percent today on concerns over the beleaguered world economy.
