It was yet another day of agony for equity markets not just in India but across the globe, as jittery investors continued to dump risky assets amid fear that the fiscal stress in the US and Eurozone will hurt the global economy. Just when we thought that the markets are in oversold zone and therefore could bounce back came another wave of sell-off across the world markets after the S&P downgraded the US top rating. In addition, the sentiment remained low as the FIIs continued their off loading on Dalal Street.

The Indian equity markets continued to suffer badly from the aftershocks of turmoil in the US and European markets. The S&P's downgrade of the US top rating spooked global markets, sending investors scurrying for cover. The trading was also volatile with the indices recovering in the afternoon before turning lower again.
The NSE Nifty fell by almost 100 points, kicking off the week on a sour note after last week's ~5% drop. Although there was a pull-back, which saw the Nifty bounce back to 5200 levels, the recovery could not be sustained as the the Dow Jones stock futures and European markets tumbled anew. Several reassuring statements from the Government and the RBI were of no help.
The rational mind of man is a shallow thing…wherein thin colonies of reason have settled amid a savage world. - Wilford O. Cross.
If you thought the Monday mayhem was something, wait, there is yet another bloodbath waiting to happen at start today. The tremors of the S&P’s bold but debatable US downgrade continue to deeply cut world markets. Predicting when the current tsunami will subside is like catching a falling knife. Avoid needless bravado and wait for the financial storm to pass.
