In Japan, the key indices finished the session slightly lower as a biggest rally in 11 weeks yesterday gave motive to investors to lock in profit while they awaited key US congressional hearings for fresh cues involving US interest rates as well as Toyota Motor Corp’s safety issues. Although, most of losses were trimmed after Asian markets pulled back from early drop. At the closing bell, the Nikkei 225 Stock Average index was at 10,352.10, dropped 48.37 points, or 0.47%.

In economy section, China's consumer price index (CPI), a main gauge of inflation, would probably only increase moderately in 2010, an official with China's National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said here on Monday
Although China's CPI continued to climb in previous months, it was not likely to surge this year as supplies were abundant, Wei Guixiang, head of the Department of Urban Social and Economic Survey of the NBS, said Monday during an exclusive interview with xinhuanet.com, a website run by Xinhua.
China's CPI rose 1.5% year-on-year in January, mainly boosted by food price increases due to the cold winter weather. The gauge in January was 0.6% up compared with last December, said the NBS.

In Australia, the shares reversed morning declines to end Tuesday trading session with flat note, as a late swing to the property trusts and financials offset losses in telecom, materials and resources and retailers on falls in commodity prices and disappointing earnings results.

At the closing bell, the benchmark S&P/ASX200 index was up 0.80 points, or 0.02%, to 4,718.30, meanwhile the broader All Ordinaries fell 1.70 points, or 0.04%, to 4,731.

Closer home, finance minister Pranab Mukherjee said today the government will continue measures to tame inflation in the financial year ending March 2011.
President Pratibha Patil on Monday, 22 February 2010 said the economy will accelerate in the coming years as it recovers from the global downturn and the government will act to protect the poor from the impact of food inflation.
The President said the economy was likely to grow about 7.5% in the current fiscal year ending in March, and the government would aim for annual growth rate of 8% in the next fiscal year and 9% in 2011/12.
Asia's third-largest economy is recovering, with factory output surging, but food prices are growing at the fastest pace in 11 years. The president's annual speech, which lays down the priorities of the government for the year, reflected those concerns over inflation as food prices keep rising at an annual rate of nearly 20%, primarily because of a poor summer harvest. The prime minister's economic advisory council last week said surging food prices threatened to fan broader inflation and endanger the economic recovery.
With growing evidence of economic recovery, including a record 16.8% jump in factory output in December, the government is under pressure to rollback the fiscal stimulus deployed to soften the impact of the global financial crisis. Analysts expect Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee to announce the expiry of some of the emergency measures in the budget speech as he looks to cut the fiscal deficit, which is on track to balloon to a 16-year high in the current financial year.
The market is likely to remain highly volatile this week with the focus being on the Railway Budget and the Union Budget 2010-11. Derivatives expiry on Thursday, 25 February 2010 is also likely to add volatility on the bourses.
Rollover in Nifty futures from February 2010 series to March 2010 series was about 29% at the end of Monday's trading. Rollover in Mini Nifty futures was also at the same level. The near-month February 2010 contracts expire on Thursday, 25 February 2010, just a day ahead of the presentation of the Budget on Friday, 26 February 2010.
The highly eventful week begins with the Railway Budget on 24 February 2010. It will be followed by tabling of Economic Survey on 25 February 2010 and the Union Budget on 26 February 2010.
As far as railway budget is concerned, the Railway minister Mamata Banerjee is likely to present a populist budget leaving passenger fares untouched, but rationalise the freight rates of certain commodities like iron ore, coal and cement. Banerjee is unlikely to tinker with the freight rates of essential commodities including food grains.
As far the Union Budget 2010-2011 is concerned, the government may announce increase in excise duties as a first step towards a gradual winding down of fiscal stimulus measures. It may also raise the service tax rate to 12% from 10%. It may be recalled that the government had slashed the Central Value Added Tax (Cenvat) rate for excise duty from 14% to 8% in two rounds starting in December 2008. It had also cut service tax by 2 percentage points. These reductions were effected in order to provide a stimulus to domestic industry. Since the overall prospects for growth are much brighter today, the finance minister may withdraw a part of the stimulus in order to boost tax revenue.
The Finance Minster may project a lower fiscal deficit for 2010-11 based on higher revenue projections due to economic rebound. It remains to be seen if there are structural reforms to reduce the subsidy burden such as decontrol of petrol and diesel prices as recommended by the Kirit Parikh committee recently.
The fate of three important fiscal bills, which had been stalled by the Left parties, will be closely watched. These are the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) Bill, Insurance Bill and Banking Regulation (Amendment) Bill.
Meanwhile, the recommendations of the 13th Finance Commission will be tabled in the parliament on 25 February 2010, just a day ahead of the budget. Analysts and economists expect the Finance Minister to provide a road map for the introduction of the key direct and indirect tax reforms viz. the direct tax code (DTC) and the Goods & Services Tax (GST) in the Budget. As far as government expenditure is concerned, the thrust areas could be agriculture, water resources, power, roads & other infrastructure projects and social sector schemes.
The government should begin to lower its fiscal deficit in the budget set to be announced this week but should not cut capital spending on infrastructure, the prime minister's economic advisory council said in a report released on Friday 19 February 2010. The panel also projected economic growth of at least 8.2% in 2010/11, from over 7.2% forecast for the current fiscal year. The fiscal deficit, running at a 16-year high of 6.8% of GDP this year, threatens to push up long-term market interest rates and constrain the setting of monetary policy, the prime minister's economic advisory council said. The panel also warned about the spread of food price inflation to the broader economy.

Index heavyweight Reliance Industries (RIL) fell 0.41% to Rs 974.90. The stock oscillated in a tight range Rs 971 and Rs 983.45.

India's largest private sector bank by operating income HDFC Bank rose 0.15%. The bank has increased fixed deposit (FD) rates across nine maturities by 25-150 basis points. The rate hike comes three weeks after the third-quarter monetary policy review of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), when the central bank increased the cash Reserve ratio by 75 basis points. In a rising rate scenario, where the credit growth is expected to improve in the coming quarters, the bank has decided to align its deposit rates with the market. HDFC Bank ADR rose 0.26% on Monday.
Bu, India's largest bank by net profit and branch network State Bank of India fell 0.1%. State Bank of India (SBI), on Monday said banks' lending rates are expected to remain stable in the next 5-6 months because of the slow credit offtake despite RBI hiking the cash reserve ratio by 75 basis points.
The Reserve Bank of India said the base rate will be the new reference rate for determining lending rates. According to draft guidelines, the RBI has proposed that the actual lending rate charged to borrowers would be the base rate plus borrower-specific charges including product-specific operating cost, credit-risk premium and tenure premium said.
For the banking sector, industry watchers expect relaxation in the lock-in period for fixed deposits - from five to three years - to qualify for tax benefits under Sec.80C. There might be an increase in the (Foreign Direct Investment) FDI in insurance sector from 26% to 49%. Expectations are also that the finance minister will allow banks to raise tax-free infrastructure funds.
Rate sensitive realty shares rose on bargain hunting. Indiabulls Real Estate, Ackruti City, Housing Development & Infrastructure, Orbit Corporation, Unitech, Akruti City, Ansal Properties and Infrastructure and DLF rose by between 0.25% to 1.67%.
Unitech and DLF would be the chief beneficiaries if the government providers thrust to affordable housing projects in the Union Budget 2010-11 next week.
Industry watchers expect that in the coming budget finance minister may increase priority sector housing loans to Rs 30 lakh from existing Rs 20 lakh. There may be a greater thrust on public private partnership (PPP) projects in housing. There may be an increase in allotment to the Rajiv Gandhi Awas Yojana (slum rehabilitation programme). Increase in tax breaks provided to housing finance and infrastructure lending companies is also expected. There may be a re-introduction of tax holiday for housing projects under Sec 80 IB (10). The increase in income tax deduction under Sec 80 C on home loan principal re-payment from Rs 1 lakh to Rs 2- 3 lakh is also expected.
Rate sensitive auto shares fell as the government is widely expected to raise excise duties on automobiles in Union Budget 2010-2011 this week. India's biggest tractor maker by sales Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) fell 1.25%, extending losses for the second straight day.
India's largest commercial vehicle maker by sales Tata Motors fell 0.83%. Tata Motors said recently it will hike commercial vehicle prices by up to 2% on account of new emission norms. The company also announced plans of bidding for a Rs 350-crore defense contract to supply light bullet-proof vehicles.
The company said recently its global vehicle sales for January nearly doubled to 85,714 units from a year earlier. The sales include UK-based luxury brands Jaguar and Land Rover, whose sales nearly trebled in the month to 16,269 units from a year ago, the company said in a statement. It had earlier said domestic sales, including trucks, buses and cars, jumped an annual 77 % in January.

A hike in excise duty in the Budget will raise the cost of owning new vehicles. Coupled with the recent price hikes across segments, and the price increases likely in April 2010 on account of the change in emission norms, these potential price increases on excise duty increase may dampen demand.
On the flip side, bus makers Ashok Leyland and Tata Motors may benefit in case of further allocation of government expenditure towards the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) in the Union Budget 2010-11. Bus demand has been boosted this year by an order for 15,000 buses under JNNURM

India's largest power utility firm by sales NTPC fell 0.32%. The company's follow on public offer managed to scrape through early this month with the issue getting subscribed 1.2 times.

Investors with a short-term trading perspective can sell Bharat Forge. This stock faces key intermediate term resistance in the zone between Rs 300 and Rs 330 and it reversed lower from this band in January. The weak rebounds since this peak imply that the stock can decline to Rs 215 over the ensuing months. Weakness in weekly oscillators and the stock's decline below the 50-day moving average supports this view.
Chart patterns in the daily chart too imply that the stock is facing selling pressure at higher levels. The stock has been closing much below its intra-day high in last four trading sessions. The 14-day relative strength index positioned at 37 and rate of change oscillator reversing below the zero line denote that the stock can decline further in the near term. Short term investors can sell the stock with the stop at Rs 252. The stock can fall to Rs 234 and Rs 220 in the days ahead.
Bharat Forge futures (Rs 243)
Traders can short the Bharat Forge future in intra-day rallies to Rs 246 or Rs 248 with stop at Rs 252. Downward targets are Rs 235 and Rs 228.
