India Markets Weekahead: Use gains to reshuffle portfolio

March 6, 2016

(Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and not of Thomson Reuters)

A confluence of positive factors, both global and local, led to a sharp rally in Indian stocks. The budget did not have anything positive for markets but it put to rest fears of re-introduction of a long-term capital gains tax which was worrying investors for the past month. From the panic lows of 6,850 on budget day, the Nifty rallied to end the week almost 6.5 percent higher.

Budget 2016: Hopes of market bounceback fizzle out

March 1, 2016

(Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and not of Thomson Reuters)

The wild gyrations in the stock market on Budget day were due to initial disapproval over inadequate measures taken to recapitalise banks and the seemingly unfair corporate tax treatment for large firms that form the bulk of market capitalisation.

A spirited rally saw India’s main indexes gaining 3 percent for the week, their biggest weekly gain in 2016. The Nifty managed to close above the 7,200 mark despite stiff resistance even as the rupee hit 52-week lows against the dollar. FIIs continued to sell to the tune of $357.43 million.

India Markets Weekahead: Wait for market consolidation

February 7, 2016

(Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and not of Thomson Reuters)

A gap-up on Thursday and a follow-up rally on Friday helped the Nifty move closer to the crucial 7,500 mark in what was a highly volatile week. Following a recovery in global stocks triggered by reduced expectations of further U.S. Fed rate hikes this calendar year, the index managed to recoup its intra-week losses.

Positions were lighter after derivatives expiry and the markets seemed to be looking at the bright side after a steep correction despite lacklustre corporate results and a weakening rupee. FIIs continued their selling spree with net selling of $171.5 million.
