Bright day for bullions

Prices rise on the face of a strong dollar

Precious metals ended substantially higher on Monday, 18 July, 2011 at Comex. Gold struck record high. Silver also shone. Concerns about the euro-zone debt crisis and the lack of agreement on raising the U.S. debt ceiling prompted investors to seek a safe haven in the precious metal. Prices rose on the face of a strong dollar.

Crude ends modestly lower

Demand concerns and strong dollar weigh on crude prices

Crude prices ended lower on Monday, 18 July 2011 at Nymex. Concerns about the euro-zone debt crisis and the lack of agreement on raising the U.S. debt ceiling gave rise to demand concerns. A strong dollar further put pressure on crude oil.

On Monday, crude oil futures for light sweet crude for August delivery closed lower by $1.31 (1.4%) at $95.93/barrel. Crude ended June 2011 lower by 7%. Year to date, crude prices are higher by 5.5%.

Market may open lower on weak Asian stocks; HDFC Bank in focus

The market may open lower extending two days losses on weak Asian stocks. Trading of S&P CNX Nifty on the Singapore stock exchange indicates a fall of 9.50 points at the opening bell. FIIs sold shares worth a net Rs 93.01 crore on Monday, 18 July 2011, as per provisional data from the stock exchanges. Domestic institutional investors (DIIs) bought shares worth Rs 163.62 crore on that day.

Key benchmark indices edged lower for the second straight day on Monday, 18 July 2011 and were near one-week closing lows as world stocks fell on Europe's sovereign-debt worries and amid a political standoff in the US over raising the US government's debt limit. The BSE Sensex was down 54.88 points or 0.3% to 18,507.04, its lowest level since 12 July 2011.

Sensex struggles to a muted close

Traders and investors could be forgiven for feeling relieved when the closing bell range today, marking an end to what was a highly boring and anemic trading session.

Although some of the non-index counters saw better price action, the overall mood was subdued. With no major results due today, the focus was on the overseas markets, which continue to reel under the debt issues confronting the US and Eurozone economies.

Tepid Tuesday…rangebound action!

A mind troubled by doubt cannot focus on the course to victory. - Arthur Golden.

Trouble for the market continues amid heightening worries over the debt distress in the US and eurozone. Officials in both these regions seem to be struggling to reach some agreement on how best to tackle the problem. Lingering concerns about the fragile state of the global economy is driving investors to the relative safety of precious metal. Gold futures have crossed $1,600; and in India also the prices of the yellow metal have hit a record high. Silver too has appreciated lately.
