MELTDOWN CONTINUES – 26/09/2008.
Once again the market was menacing and dreadful as the Sensex plunged by 940 points on a week to week basis. In the process, the small upmove which had started a week back has ended. The market once again plunged in the wake of postponement of the clearing of the Nuclear deal. The market has once again started its down move and is headed lower. The Sensex and Nifty have registered a Bearish Engulfing Pattern in the Weekly charts.
If the Sensex and Nifty Breaks its previous double bottom then the chances are we may well be on the way to test Nifty 3677-3272 and Sensex 12177-10740.

The market once again plunged in the wake of postponement of the clearing of the Nuclear deal. The market has once again started its down move and is headed lower.

Inflation for the week ended September 14th 2008, came in unchanged at 12.14%. Thus the year-on-year and week-on-week inflation remains flat. One positive aspect that we can draw from here is that finally inflation is showing signs of tiring out. A big positive is that the Manufacturing index, which has 64% weightage in the index fell by 0.5%. This is the first time in 4 months it has shown a decline. Going forward we can expect inflation to cool down further.
Considering, the global financial crisis and the liquidity crunch prevailing in the global markets, it is unlikely that the RBI will opt for a rate hike. “No Action Stance” from the RBI, which is what the market desires, will signal an end of Interest Rate hardening era in our markets.
It was a tepid expiry as the nifty October future closed at a hefty premium of 40 points. The nifty rollover was 63% v/s 75% in the last expiry. Even the overall market wide roll over was lower at 76% v/s 83% last month. The low roll over on low base means the market is very lite and can take any direction very easily.
A low roll over was seen in most of frontline stocks like Reliance and ONGC. Interestingly side stocks like India cement and PSU banks like IDBI, Vijaya bank and UBI witnessed a strong roll over above 90%. Stocks like BPCL and Bharti witnessed very low roll over.
