The key benchmarks edged lower as profit taking emerged after the market scaled two-year high on Monday, 29 March 2010. Nevertheless, the market breadth was strong, with some side counters surging sharply. The BSE 30-share Sensex fell 121.18 points or 0.68%, off close to 195 points from the day's high and up close to 30 points from the day's low. IT stocks fell on a firm rupee. Banking and auto stocks also edged lower. But, realty stocks gained.
NSE's volatility index, India VIX, surged for the third day in a row. The index rose 5.71% to 19.80. India VIX is a measure of the market's expectation of volatility over the next 30 calendar days. The lower the index, which is based the S&P CNX Nifty option prices, the higher the market's desire to take risk.
The market edged higher in early trade on firm Asian stocks. It remained range-bound later. The market slipped into the red in morning trade. It came off the lower level in mid-morning trade, regaining positive zone. The market once again moved in a narrow range in early afternoon trade. The market once again slipped into the red in mid-afternoon trade. Stocks extended losses in late trade.

Romania and Hungary cut interest rates to fresh lows on Monday as monetary policymakers looked to support growth in response to an improved assessment of market risk in central and eastern Europe
Asian stocks rose on Tuesday after a report showed that US consumers continued to spend last month, with the sentiment also boosted by Greece's success in raising money from the debt market. The key benchmark indices in Hong Kong, Japan, Indonesia, South Korea, Taiwan, China and Singapore rose by between 0.15% to 1.01%.
Japan's industrial production fell in February and the unemployment rate held at the lowest level since March 2009, underscoring an uneven economic recovery that has yet to end deflation. The 0.9% drop in factory output from a month earlier snapped 11 straight gains and followed a 2.7% increase in January, the Trade Ministry said in Tokyo. The jobless rate stayed at 4.9% after two monthly declines.
Though still in the green, US index futures were off the day's highs. Trading in US index futures indicated that the Dow could gain 15 points at the opening bell on Tuesday, 30 March 2010.
US stocks rose on Monday 29 March 2010 as miners and energy companies advanced on dollar weakness and investors bought recent high fliers as the quarter's end approached. Stocks got a boost from news US consumer spending rose for a fifth straight month in February. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 45.50 points, or 0.42%, to end at 10,895.86. The Standard & Poor's 500 Index inched up 6.63 point, or 0.57%, to 1,173.22. The Nasdaq Composite Index gained 9.23 points, or 0.39%, to close at 2,404.36.
On Monday, data showed personal spending in the US rose for the fifth consecutive month in February 2010. All eyes are now on Friday's (2 April 2010) crucial non-farm payrolls for March 2010. The US economy is expected to add some 200,000-odd jobs in March, which would be the largest gain since the recession.
The International Monetary Fund is more optimistic about the prospects for global economic growth than it was in January, but the world is experiencing an uneven recovery, IMF managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn said on Monday.
Back home, foreign funds have made heavy purchases of Indian stocks this month, helping stocks register strong gains. The Sensex had jumped 1,457.15 points or 8.96% to a 2-year closing high of 17711.35 on Monday, 29 March 2010, from a low of 16,254.20 on 25 February 2010. As per data from the stock exchanges, foreign institutional investors (FIIs) bought stocks worth a net Rs 13,799.52 crore this month, till 29 March 2010. Finance secretary Ashok Chawla said on Tuesday, 23 March 2010, that foreign capital flows into India are currently not posing any concern.
Meanwhile, stock brokers have advised investors not to sell shares bought on Wednesday, 31 March 2010, the next day i.e. on Thursday, 1 April 2010, due to clubbing of settlement by the stock exchanges. There will be no settlement of shares/funds on 1 April 2010 due to annual closing of books of accounts of commercial banks. The current financial year ends on Wednesday, 31 March 2010.
The stock market remains closed on Friday, 2 April 2010, on account of Good Friday.
Encouraging Q4 March 2010 advance tax figures of top Indian firms, indicating good Q4 March 2010 results, boosted Indian equities over the past few days. The market also witnessed a strong post-Budget rally driven by sustained buying by foreign funds since the presentation of the Union Budget 2010-2011 on 26 February 2010. Global credit rating agency Standard & Poor's, last week, revised the outlook on India to stable from negative due to improved government finances.
The stock market gave a thumbs up to the Union Budget 2010-2011 due to its thrust on infrastructure development, government's pledge to reduce fiscal deficit over the next three years, a smaller-than-expected 2% hike in excise duties, and reduction in taxes for individuals which will boost disposable income. The Finance Minister has assumed GDP growth of about 8% and inflation of about 4.5% for 2010-2011.
The forecast for the southwest monsoon for 2010 is the next major trigger for the market. Good rains this year after last year's drought will boost farm output and rural incomes. But another monsoon failure will add to inflationary pressure which in turn may hamper the current strong economic rebound.
Tokyo-based Research Institute for Global Change has predicted normal monsoon rains in India for the current year. Agriculture secretary Prabeer Kumar Basu had also told media in Delhi last week that the monsoon rains for the year will be normal. The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) issues a monsoon forecast, usually in the second half of April after considering weather observations in different parts of the world and extrapolating statistical data.
The headline inflation was near 10% in February, prompting the RBI to unexpectedly raise its key lending and borrowing rates by 25 basis points each on 19 March 2020. The Reserve Bank has said it is imperative to anchor inflationary expectations and analysts have forecast another rate hike during the policy review on 20 April 2010.
Meanwhile, the latest economic data showed infrastructure sector output grew 4.5% in February from a year earlier, lower than an upwardly revised annual growth of 9.5% in January. During April-February, the first 11 months of the 2009/10 fiscal year, output rose 5.3% from 2.9% a year ago. The infrastructure sector accounts for 26.7% of India's industrial output.
The headline inflation should peak in March with demand-side pressures likely having a short-term impact on prices, the central chief statistician Pronab Sen said on Friday.
The government will sell 63% of its bond issuance for the new fiscal year in the first half, slightly less than expected, giving a near-term respite to satiated bondholders and helping send yields sharply lower on Monday. Yields fell further on Tuesday. The government on Monday said it will sell Rs 2.87 lakh crore ($64 billion) of bonds in the first half of 2010/11, which starts on 1 April 2010. The bulk of the government's first-half borrowing, or Rs 2 lakh crore, will be in the 10-year and longer segment.
Meanwhile, the government reportedly wants to now classify all equity placements before a public offer to any investor, including private equity firms, or employees as promoter equity. This implies that Indian companies will have to offer more shares in a public offering to investors, in keeping with changes in rules proposed by the government to boost public holding in listed firms and liquidity. This will form part of the new rules under which all listed companies will have to consistently maintain a public holding of at least 25%.
The BSE 30-share Sensex fell 121.18 points or 0.68% to 17,590.17. The Sensex rose 72 points at the day's high of 17,783.35 in early trade. The barometer fell 153.13 points at the day's low of 17,558.20 in late trade.
The S&P CNX Nifty fell 40.40 points or 0.76% to 5,262.45.
The BSE Mid-Cap index rose 0.15% and the BSE Small-Cap index rose 0.78%. Both the indices outperformed the Sensex.
Most sectoral indices on BSE edged lower. BSE IT index (down 2.19%) and BSE Healthcare index (down 0.94%) underperformed the Sensex. BSE Realty index (up 1.42%), PSU index (up 0.8%), Power index (up 0.16%), FMCG index (down 0.02%), Auto index (down 0.1%), Consumer Durables index (down 0.17%), Capital Goods index (down 0.22%), Oil & Gas index (down 0.29%), and Bankex (down 0.55%), outperformed the Sensex.

Index heavyweight Reliance Industries (RIL) fell 0.55%, on profit taking after recent sharp gains. As per the market buzz, RIL's Q4 advance tax surged to Rs 770 crore in Q4 March 2010 from Rs 365 crore a year ago.
Reliance Industries on 14 March 2010 announced a sports and entertainment joint venture with IMG Worldwide, a global leader in sports marketing and management. The equal venture, IMG Reliance, will set up modern infrastructure and coaching facilities for sports and create and operate sports and entertainment assets including celebrity management.
Rate sensitive banking stocks fell on profit taking after recent strong gains. India's largest bank by net profit and branch network State Bank of India (SBI) fell 0.59%.
India's largest private sector bank by net profit HDFC Bank fell 2.98% after hitting an all-time high of Rs 1986 on Monday.

Host of factors take precious metals higher
Precious metal prices ended higher on Monday, 29 March 2010. Prices rose as the dollar slipped during the day and also on anticipation that demand from China will increase in the coming years.
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 and also vice versa.
On Monday, gold for April delivery ended at $1,111.5 an ounce, higher by $6.1 (0.5%) an ounce on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Last week, gold ended marginally lower by 0.2%. In FY 2010, gold touched a high of $1,154 in January.
On Monday, May Comex silver futures ended higher by 48 cents (2.8%) at $17.38 an ounce. Last week, silver ended lower by 0.7%.
In the currency market on Monday, the dollar index, which measures the strength of the dollar against basket of six other currencies fell by 0.4%.
In a report released today, the World Gold Council said that demand for gold from China could double in the next decade due to higher investment demand. As per the report, demand for gold in China reached 423 metric tons, or 466 short tons, last year, but domestic mines contributed only 314 metric tons, or 346 short tons. This shortfall creates a "snowball" effect as China's gold industry has to rely on imports.
Gold had ended FY 2009 higher by 24%. Silver futures had ended 2009 up 50%. The dollar index had lost 4.2% against its counterparts last year.
Last year, after hitting a low at $807.30 per ounce on 15 January 2009, gold futures rallied almost 51% to hit an all-time high at $1217.40 per ounce during early December of 2009 but fell from those levels at the end.

Gabriel India faces strong long-term resistance in the range between Rs 38 and Rs 44. The stock reversed from this zone in December 1994 and then in April 2006.
