Asian markets joyous after G20

Most indices gain after global finance ministers and central bankers note that a global economic recovery is under way at an uneven pace

Asian markets mostly went up today, cruising higher as the renewed wave of risk appetite pushed up the commodities and traders eyed the latest G20 statement. The much awaited talks of the G20 meet in South Korea ended yesterday and the Group of 20 finance ministers and central bankers noted that a global economic recovery is under way but uneven, and warned of the need to move toward more “market-determined” currency exchange rates. Growth has been strong in many emerging-market economies, but the pace of activity remains modest in many advanced economies, noted the G20 in a joint communiqué. Dollar slipped following this, as traders eyed for a definite turn towards the much anticipated quantitative easing in the next meet of US Fed.

Market drifts higher on firm global stocks

Initial batch of strong Q2 September 2010 results and firm global markets helped Indian stocks score decent gains in a choppy trading session. Stocks were volatile as traders rolled over positions in the derivatives segment from the near-month October 2010 series to November 2010 series ahead of the expiry of the October 2010 contracts on Thursday, 28 October 2010. Shares of IT bellwether Infosys fell and index heavyweight Reliance Industries came off the day's high. Most Asian markets climbed on expectations that further monetary easing by the US Federal Reserve would boost liquidity in the region.

Swim with the current

We are expecting a sedate start today, in line with the global trend. US stocks barely advanced on Friday. European markets ended in red. Asian benchmarks are mixed. Going ahead, things might get a bit more volatile due to the F&O expiry.

In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock. - Thomas Jefferson.

World markets seem to be in a state of limbo right now. Corporate earnings are competing with concerns about economic recovery. For India too the story is no different; the September spark is clearly missing. The Sensex and the Nifty are in a sideways consolidation mode. Fresh fireworks ahead of Diwali look less likely for now.

Weekly: Up down and flat...Nifty fails to hold 6100

The splendid response to the Coal India IPO boosted the morale of the bulls; as did a few strong corporate earnings. However, momentum failed to last as key indices saw accelerated selling on Friday. Sentiment was also nervous after two consecutive weeks of losses, which dragged down the indices from 33-month highs. Finally the Sensex and Nifty closed the week flat at 20166 and 6066 respectively.
