The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) today, July 2 raised the short-term lending and borrowing rates by 25 basis points with immediate effect, a move which it aims will help contain inflation.
The move comes weeks ahead of the scheduled policy review by RBI on July 27 and a day after the government announced that food inflation dipped by about a quarter to about 12%.
The central bank raised both, repo and reverse repo rates (the rates at which the RBI lends and borrows short-term funds from commercial banks), by 25 basis points to 5.50 per cent and 4%, respectively.
The move would raise cost of funds for banks and temper demand for loans, and in turn, consumer spending.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance. - Anonymous.
The market may have tumbled but it was not as bad as it appeared; the market breadth did not collapse and the decline came on lower volume. Also, outflows from the foreign funds were only marginal in the cash segment. Given that backdrop, we expect the market to resume its ascent today after a slow start. Most Asian markets, barring Hong Kong, are trading in the green. Markets in Hong Kong were shut on Thursday.

We recommend a buy in the stock of Neyveli Lignite Corporation from a short-term perspective. After recording a 52-week high at Rs 177 on January 19, the stock was on a medium-term downtrend until it found support around Rs 140 in late May. The level Rs 140 is a significant long-term support for the stock. Subsequently, the stock bounced up and has been on a short-term uptrend. Moreover, the stock appears to have resumed its long-term uptrend that has been in place since its October 2008 low of Rs 44.5. The stock decisively breached through its moving average compression around Rs 147 in early June. It is trading well above its 21 and 50-day moving averages. The stock's 2.5 per cent jump with above average volume on July 1 has reinforced the short-term bullish momentum. The daily relative strength index is featuring in the bullish zone and weekly RSI is heading towards this zone in the neutral region. The weekly price rate of change indicator has entered the positive territory implying that buying interest has resumed. Our short-term outlook on the stock is positive. We expect it to move up until it hits our price target of Rs 166 or Rs 170 in the approaching sessions. Short-term traders can buy the stock with stop-loss at Rs 154.
