Inching towards that 6100 mark, to inch back to 6000~

Markets never had such a foggy idea of where they were going having just cut up all paths withs chances of an India recovery but yet fogged by the fact that there is hardly any other choice if you exit India as a Foreign investor. US markets in fact have much the same prognosis ahead of the QE withdrawal as most of the money staying in any markets would unlikely move between markets. In fact Indian debt is back in “currency” as a new auction for buying rights saw the permits from the Central Bank covered to $4.33 Bln (@60INR=1USD) However, exits for indian debt since the fateful announcement in May were a humongous $10 Bln and RBI auctions have been unattended last when they thought banks would respond to excess liquidity mop up initiated in response to the FX crisis

Yesterday’s measures go further, es the ingenious channeling of Gold imports, committing a fifth to exports and assigned to custom bonded warehouses. mports are allowed for Gold businesses only but should fairly benefit the Economy from here after the thud from the extreme shock in June that dd bring the trade deficit back 40% to $12 B for the month

Markets and commentators seem to be losing faith in Cap Goods “monopolies” in India like BHEL who are fairly regular in printing bad numbers every three- four quarters and as banks have bottomed out, the short trade would start from any such market reaction to bad results, good results already baked in. L&T’s results for example seem spectacularly bad for market sentiment despite the Capital Goods major stuck with the same pipeline for well on 9 quarters now as it has been highlighting frequently and deterioration was probably unfortunately still not baked in

The GST reform may not be done but as ET reports on the front page the Capital NCR state of Delhi is finally getting bar codes to track elusive alcohol revenues , an important arsenal of funding for States in the Indian Federal system. in the southern idyll of Karnatak, in fact alcohol lees and extra state duties on fuels ( esp Petrol) make more than 90% of the budget’s income streams

Mid Day update; IT sector seems to be set up for the big fall as markets drop the dollar factor and go back to business left in value from the big move to IT last month. The IT short could well start before the expiry as IT stocks are not big in derivative trades esp with TechM, KPIT and infoedge not getting th bg speculators who play in derivatives

Also Walmart, Carrefour and tesco ventures in India may finally be closer to expanding statewise as the policymakers write in a waiver to 30% local supplier clauses allowing them to go for their preferred favorite supplier strategies sheltering them for producing exclusively for them, much a good thing for the supply chain deficiencies in the country

In stocks, you should have been long banks and you could hold from here. You can also keep longs in ITC, Bharti, Bajaj Auto and IDFC irrespective of current levels. At 6100 , the markets will head south for having run out of reasons to stay up and make room for a few margin trades on the short but expiry may well happen above 6000 levels as the ‘comeback’ trade (sic!) would just try and get a fai trade for shorts before closing up again with select stocks and sectors really sparse in this deep and big market, making impact opportunities a likely opportunity for those with 1005 data access. if you are game, you should look for changes in liquidity impact of the NSE 500 stocks and probably a dozen will show up interesting changes in trend to pounce upon. Those stocks toking up and ready to go downhill may also be camouflaged especially if you see large volumes in trades as prices go down on sustained basis(more than 2-3 days of this week )

Sorry Ashwini(ETNOW), going short ain’t so easy if you are betting on India, much like its hindu rate of growth, the nations stocks are probably stuck at these levels unable to channelise a trend
