The Kent RO India Economic Conclave(ET//ETNOW), probably reminds other Indiaphiles of the Autoclaves and Indian barbecues as the Delhi Winters approach. Indian (Mughlai) Barbies of course last all year and the take off on that name is rather steeply silly, but not as silly as those Modi’fying Indian polity or still relying on Bankrupt European franchises not just in India but even in US where European Banks try to claim the upcycle again just for having reached the bottom of the valuation pile in investor opinion.

It signals that people are listening to more than the seldom heard refrain earlier that US Bonds are headed for the 4% mark on the 10-year Treasuries, Goldman Sachs having updated their opinion and with US equities starting from record 16000 levels finally after 5 years other equity assets around the globe are also finding favour. India must be enthused because even without the Enclaves or any agro encomium (at the new WTO round in the ‘hood), India weights will remain ahead of European bank investments, HY Bonds in the US that continue to come back however will be something EMs and India cannot compete against.

I-Banks stocks are a good pick if your portfolio does not have overseas diversification yet, with Investing in fashion and rising by the EM watermark rate of 30% growth at least in the first 6 months. Again, these flows including US high yield and specific picks in Global equities do not compete with India flows, while Asia credit remains at its most constrained sufficiently tempting even without European QE to keep the arbitrage for Asian treasuries and an umbrella from Domestic Interest rates is always readily available, not threatening the CAD in any of these South Asian / ASEAN SE economies that seem to bring more relief to Chinese investors and pro reform governments. The winners however in the I Banks are HSBC and Goldman Sachs and other stronger names, and one should be careful to whom one listens and sets the morning alarm with.

FIPB approvals have come in for Singapore Airlines – Tata Air joint venture and Religare which will invest as holding company from the island state.

Another quick silly update: The linkages of urban and even rural India to radio as a media have again spiked into something tasty and a medicine to nail the hubris, without having to drink and drive, even as new year celebraions come around the bend in Lutyens’ Delhi and elsewhere. Home is where the heart is, they say, esp when the RJ is handing out your favorite Mall freebies and movie Tickets with Muscle and oomph.

A small slide in from Gold to near 31k marks just on the news of 40% investment demand of last year returning. Gold season is tough for Financial discipline. UCO Baank results? give them a pass and stay with BOI and PNB, and you must get short on SBI to save the India Fund you have been planning. Buy IDFC, trade YES Bank and ITC because you have already bought and no there are no retail investors to count in the Indian markets the residuall INR 50 Bln turnover of the class probably counting professionals in the trade, since the first 95 circulars from SEBI cut out sub brokers and MLM chains from Indian Financial Markets. QFIs have still not taken much to directly investing in India and apparently there is still something to be done about it..

Modi? Bad experiment!
