Sensex takes a breather...

After enjoying a pleasant rebound over the past six trading sessions, the Indian markets finally took a breather on Friday. The six-day rally came to a halt after traders and investors preferred to book some profits at higher levels. Data showing deceleration in manufacturing sector activity from Australia to Europe also partly contributed to the selling today. Back home, trade deficit widened in May as well as in April-May period. Monthly auto sales also came in mixed, with Maruti's volumes sliding on a 10-day strike.

World is on the move

"Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will." - Mahatma Gandhi.

Friday’s minor blip deprived Indian markets of a strong weekly finish, although the broader market held its own. Nothing to worry, as the momentum still remains in tact, with world markets cheering a surprise gain for the US manufacturing PMI. The encouraging US data came on a day when most national manufacturing PMIs registered a drop.

Crude snaps three day winning streak

Prices recover from intra day low levels

Crude-oil futures settled modestly lower on Friday, 01 July 2011 at Nymex snapping a three-day winning streak but coming off the day's lows on a surprise rise for a key gauge of U.S. manufacturing activity. In addition to profit-taking, oil was feeling the pinch of a stronger dollar, even as the U.S. unit moderated its gains.

Oil for August delivery declined 48 cents, or 0.5%, to settle at $94.94 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. It had earlier traded as low as $93.45 a barrel, hit by weak manufacturing data in China and in the U.K. Crude registered 4.2% gains on a weekly basis.

Bullions register modest weekly losses

Gold settles at lowest levels in six weeks

Gold for August delivery declined $20.20, or 1.3%, to $1,482.60 an ounce on the Comex division of New York Mercantile Exchange, bringing weekly losses to 1.2%.
