The market appeared to be heading towards a negative close after a strong bout of profit taking towards the close shaved off nearly 250 points from the day’s high. After resuming 112 points up at 16296, till afternoon the Sensex witnessed strong optimism. While action in several counters held the market firm above 16300 levels in the first half, the index notched up further gains in afternoon to touch the day's high of 16435. However, the market slipped towards the close as weakness in select heavyweights, realty, consumer durables and auto stocks dragged the index to an intra-day low of 16166. The Sensex ended the session with marginal gains of 33 points at 16217, while Nifty added 5 point to its kitty to close at 4819.
Advance decline ratio tilted in favour of declining scrips. Of the 2,880 stocks on the BSE, 1,710 stocks declined, whereas 1,093 stocks advanced. Seventy-seven stocks did not see any change.

Gets bids for 81.16 crore shares as compared with 2.64 crore shares on offer
The initial public offer (IPO) of state-run Oil India was subscribed 30.69 times by 16:00 IST on day four, data on NSE website showed. The IPO received bids for 81.16 crore shares on Thursday, 10 September 2009, compared to the issue size of 2.64 crore shares. The IPO opened for bidding on Monday, 7 September 2009, and closes today, 10 September 2009.
The IPO has received strong response from institutional investors. The qualified institutional buyers (QIB) category was subscribed 7.18 times with foreign institutional investors putting in bids for 8.24 crore shares, as on 9 September 2009. The non institutional, retail and employee categories remained undersubscribed on day three.
At a price band of Rs 950-Rs 1050, the PE ratio works out to 10.2-11.3, based on earnings per share (EPS) of Rs 93 for the year ended March 2009 on post-issue equity of Rs 240.45 crore. The company is raising about Rs 2700 crore from the IPO.
Along with the IPO, the government is simultaneously selling a part of its stake in Oil India to the three state-run refiners - Indian Oil Corporation, HPCL and BPCL. Post-IPO and disinvestment, the government's stake in the company will decrease from 98.13% to 78.5%.
Oil India is India's second biggest oil and gas production firm in terms of revenue after ONGC. Oil India's net profit rose 25.1% to Rs 2230.85 crore on 17.6% growth in sales to Rs 7200.70 crore in the year ended March 2009 over the year ended March 2008.
The key benchmark indices registered small gains in choppy trade, extending a rally for the fifth day. The market retraced after hitting a 15-month high as weak European markets and lower US index futures triggered profit taking. The BSE 30-share Sensex rose 33.31 points or 0.21% to 16,216.86, off close to 220 points from the day's high. Banking and metal stocks gained. Realty and auto stocks declined.
Index heavyweight Reliance Industries fell in volatile trade. The market breadth was weak in contrast to a strong breadth earlier in the day.
Intraday volatility was high. The market surged in early trade on higher Asian stocks. It surged to a fresh intraday high in morning trade before paring gains. A brief recovery from lower level was witnessed in early afternoon trade. After hitting an intraday low, the market regained strength later. However, the recovery proved short lived with the Sensex slipping into the red in late trade
India's exports declined the least in eight months in August 2009 as overseas sales of coal, rice and tobacco picked up, Commerce Secretary Rahul Khullar said. Merchandise shipments dropped 19.7% from a year earlier to $14.3 billion after sliding 28.4% in July 2009, Khullar said.
A recent spell of good rains will help the next season crop to be sown from October and harvested in March and April next year, Farm Minister Sharad Pawar said on Thursday.
India's monsoon rains reportedly were 21% above average in the past week till 9 September 2009. But total rainfall since 1 June 2009, the start of the season, was 20% below average because of exceptionally dry spells in the past. More than two-thirds of the people live in villages and 60% of the farm land depends on the annual rains.
The wholesale price index (WPI) fell 0.12% in the year through 29 August 2009, lower than an annual decline of 0.21% in the previous week, data released by the government at 12:10 IST today, showed. The food article index surged 14.8%.
Analysts are concerned that a sharp surge in food prices in the past few days due to scanty rains may stoke inflationary pressures in the economy. Interest rates could rise on higher inflation which in turn may impact a nascent economic recovery and corporate profits.
Comments from Finance Secretary Ashok Chawla, however, helped soothe those concerns to some extent on Wednesday when he said the main worry is lifting growth rather than inflation and said he saw no need for the central bank to change policy. He further said India's government will not borrow more from the market than its budget target for 2009/10 (April-March).The government plans to borrow Rs 4,51,000 crore ($93 billion) in the fiscal year to fund a fiscal deficit forecast at 6.8% of gross domestic product.
Meanwhile, liquidity continues to support share prices and oversubscription to the Oil India initial public offering is a testimony to that. The Oil India IPO which opened for bidding on 7 September 2009, was subscribed 30.77 times by 17:00 IST on the last day of the issue today, 10 September 2009. The government has fixed Rs 950-1,050 per share price band for the initial public offering of Oil India (OIL), the second state-run firm to hit the market this year after NHPC, and will raise up to Rs 2,777 crore.
The strong response to Oil India IPO was despite a muted debut of another state-run firm NHPC on the secondary markets early this month
European shares turned negative in morning trade on Thursday, as weakness in banks and retailers outweighed gains in technology and engineering firms. Key benchmark indices in France, and UK were down by between 0.36% to 0.6%. But, Germany's DAX was flat in volatile trade.
The Bank of England left interest rates at a record low of 0.5% for the sixth month running on Thursday and said it would keep its 175 billion pound asset buying programme in place
Asian stocks climbed today as a surge in earnings of China Yurun Food Group and a positive update on earnings from US chip maker Texas Instruments lifted confidence the global economy is recovering. Key benchmark indices in Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan rose by between 1.05% to 2.3%. But, China's Shanghai Composite fell 0.73%.
Japan's Nikkei rose 1.95% even after a Cabinet Office report showed Japanese machinery orders dropped more than economists had estimated in July 2009. Orders are regarded as an indicator of capital spending in the next three to six months.
Trading in US index futures indicated Dow could shed 15 points at the opening bell today, 10 September 2009.

The Sensex is up 6569.55 points or 68.09% in calendar year 2009 as on 10 September 2009.

FII inflow in calendar year 2009 totaled Rs 41,795.70 crore (till 9 September 2009).
Coming back to today's trade, the market breadth indicating the overall health of the market, was negative. The breadth was strong in early trade. On BSE, 1086 shares rose as compared with 1709 that declined. A total of 77 shares remained unchanged.

India's largest private sector firm by market capitalisation and oil refiner Reliance Industries (RIL) fell 0.93% to Rs 2149.20. The stock hit a high of Rs 2205 and a low of Rs 2135. Anil Ambani group firm Reliance Natural Resources (RNRL) on Wednesday told the Supreme Court that the government has no role to play either in the utilisation or the fixation of gas price as per its contract with Mukesh-led RIL.
The two sides RIL and RNRL had approached Supreme Court challenging a decision by the Bombay High Court on 15 June 2009, which said RIL should provide 28 million cubic metres of gas per day to RNRL at $ 2.34 per mmBtu and both the parties should sign a necessary agreement for the same within a month. RIL, however, is pleading that it was only a contractor for the gas from the Krishna-Godavari basin's D6 block and did not have the power to fix the price, while the government has also moved a special leave petition in the case asserting its right on pricing and distribution of natural gas. The apex court has decided to commence hearing on this matter on 20 October.
A rally in crude oil failed to lift oil exploration counters. India's biggest state-run oil exploration firm by revenue Oil & Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) was flat at Rs 1180.45. Cairn India fell 2.83%. Rise in crude oil prices would result in higher realizations from crude sales for oil exploration firms.
Crude oil rose as the falling dollar spurred investors to buy commodities as an inflation hedge and an industry report showed a decline in US inventories. The American Petroleum Institute reported US stockpiles declined 7.22 million barrels, the biggest drop since 5 September 2008. Light, sweet crude for October delivery settled 21 cents, or 0.3%, higher at $71.31 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange on Wednesday.
Telecom stocks rose. India's largest mobile services provider by sales Bharti Airtel rose 1.81% after the company denied media reports it had reached an agreement with South Africa's MTN on their planned multi-billion dollar share and cash swap. But the stock came off the day's high of Rs 424.40. A reports had suggested the two companies had reached a $24 billion preliminary agreement. But Bharti said talks between the two -- which could later lead to a full merger -- were still going on.
Bharti and South African telecom operator MTN have been in negotiations since 25 May 2009 on a $23 billion cash and share-swap deal aimed at an eventual full merger. The deadline for the talks has been extended twice.
India's second largest listed mobile services provider by sales Reliance Communications rose 1.19%.
Metal stocks rose on strong domestic demand. India's largest private sector steel marker by sales Tata Steel gained 2.27% after Steel Minister Virbhadra Singh said domestic consumption of steel could rise 6% this quarter. Tata Steel on Monday, 7 September 2009 said steel sales at its Indian operations rose 25% to 492,000 tonnes in August 2009 over August 2008.
Domestic operations contribute about 25% of the group's total annual global capacity, including Europe's second-largest steelmaker Corus.
Jindal Steel, Sterlite Industries, National Aluminum Company, Jindal Saw, rose by between 0.45% to 7.05%.

We recommend a sell in Bajaj Hindusthan from a short-term perspective. It is apparent from the charts that the stock bottomed in March around Rs 40. The uptrend accelerated in May and this rally prolonged until late June. However, after encountering resistance in the band of Rs 230 and 235, the stock reversed direction. Since then, the stock has been on a medium-term downtrend. After breaking through the key support level of Rs 200 (turned in to key resistance) in early June, the stock failed to surpasses this resistance level twice. Reinforcing the downtrend, the stock breached its 21- and 50-day moving averages recently. The daily relative strength index is declining towards the bearish zone and weekly RSI has slipped to the neutral region. Moreover, the daily moving average convergence and divergence indicator are signalling a sell and are hovering in the negative territory. We are bearish on the stock from a short-term perspective. We expect its decline to continue until it hits our price target of Rs 157. Traders with a short-term perspective can sell the stock while maintaining a stop-loss at Rs 184.
