It opened with a gain of 63.92 points, at 16,805.22 on Tuesday taking positive cues from Asian market. The index continued to trade in the green the entire day on sustained buying interest seen in index heavyweights.

Meanwhile, the world economy is likely to be the focus of a two-day G20 financial summit in Pittsburgh on 24-25 September 2009. The G20 leaders will discuss overhauling global financial regulation and fixing long-term imbalances in the world economy. The G20 leaders are also considering ways to rein in bank bonuses that many say contributed to the global financial crisis by encouraging excessive risk-taking.

Keep your eye on the Big picture, but watch your step.
Caution is going to be the mantra for the next few days as the market digests the recent spurt and awaits fresh good news. Global cues are mixed. Today, we expect a cautious start after an extended weekend. Things will be volatile given that we have the F&O expiry on Thursday.
The outcome of the two-day Fed meeting will be announced on Wednesday (US time of course). It’s a no-brainer that the Fed won’t tinker with rates. What could, however, have a bearing on the sentiment is what the FOMC says about the road ahead and the state of the US economy. Then there is the G20 Summit scheduled for this weekend.
All these events will make it tough for the key indices to build on last week’s gains. Though the overall mood is positive, the road ahead will be bumpy. The fact that we have already traveled so much since early March could bring in some apprehensions. The results are just round the corner and expectations are on the positive side. Among the big risks will be inflation and its fallout on monetary policy. FIIs will continue to play a key role.
FIIs were net buyers of Rs14.86bn in the cash segment on Friday on a provisional basis. The local funds pulled out Rs5.05bn, according to figures published on the NSE's web site. In the F&O segment, the foreign funds were net sellers at Rs2.97bn. On Thursday, FIIs were net buyers of Rs26.63bn in the cash segment. The net FII investments in Indian stocks this year have crossed $9.8bn. Mutual Funds were net buyers of Rs1.01bn on Thursday.

Stocks have risen during those 6-1/2 months due to slowly improving economy and unprecedented stimulus measures. But the rally has come too fast and too far ahead to leave any further room for comfort for the bulls.
The biggest catalyst in the next few weeks and month will be corporate earnings. There could be a modest pullback of 5% to 7%. But with a lot of money sitting on the sidelines, the downside will not be much.
The August index of leading economic indicators rose 0.6%, according to a report from the Conference Board released Monday. That was short of forecasts for a rise of 0.7%, according to a consensus of economists. LEI rose 0.6% in July.

On Thursday, the Group of 20 leading developed and emerging countries will meet in Pittsburgh to discuss the global economy in the wake of the recession. Expect G20 leaders to take credit for saving the world economy from slipping into another Great Depression.
