Market may crash

Yesterday I wrote that "I believe these gains would not be held in July. So please do not make any medium term purchases today". Today all international markets are down. Nifty expected to tank atleast 3 per cent. If Reliance goes down substantially then the downside risk is still higher.
Traders can sell near term calls or buy puts. Don't go long in cash

Rumor Received

Today market is full of rumors. The subject ranges from PM's resignation to Ambani brothers new war. To quote a sample following is the IM received from my friend working at a local brokerage.
armaan sharma: ALERT on’t buy any stock………sell sell sell sell……..ICICI BANK @ 683 too….110% will crash to kiss 650--------640 in hrs…major selloff on card…delivery selling on card from HSBC on card………..yes major negative news on card…..why Mr.KAMAT in newyork ????????Pls sell…..will crash to kiss 550 next week !!Sell all bank stock……………………………..sell sell sell !!
Be Careful.

Religare Changes Option Brokerage

Religare actually charged it's customers @2.4% of option premium, which I think the highest in India. Now it has sent an email indicating that brokerage structure for trading in options segment has been revised and new simplified slabs would be applicable with effect from 30th June, 2008. As STT computation methodology already changed, it would help religare customers to trade morein Options.

Today is the not the Day

Market may have gained some points yesterday. My advice is that you should not try to buy today as the political cues and F&O closings would make the market more volatile. I don't think we are at or near the bottom. I believe these gains would not be held in July. So please do not make any medium term purchases today.
Left parties of India actually more concerned about the welfare of China than India. To sustain high growth rate, we need to improve our infrastructural facilities. Power is one among them. Even though nuclear power is costly, it is the only way to generate through out the year with out any traditional inputs like coke (limited resource) and hydro power ( availability is seasonal). Lefts should not drag the matter any further. They should either support Govt.'s initiative else withdraw support to the Govt.It would really help the economy and the Country. Please don't try the back seat driving. Let them remember that it is Manmohan's Govt. Till the uncertanity is over, the market will not stabilize.

Credit Card Security Code

Credit Card Security Code is a feature to increase the protection against credit card fraud. Typically in the internet transactions you will be asked to type card No., Cardholder's name, expiry date and CVV2. In India, if you make any merchant transactions ( physically presenting card), most of the transaction confirmation receipt contain all the above information except CVV2.

CVV2 number (last 3 digits as shown in the picture) is located in the signature strip. In the pretext of verifying your signature, the billing staff can note your CVV2 No. and can use it on internet.( All other needed information can be noted from transaction slip at his disposal). So you memorize the number and place a black sticker on the last 3 digits as indicated below.

This would you protect you from credit card frauds.

Avoid driving when it is pouring heavily . But if urgent, drive using first gear only and avoid using full accelerator. Lower your window panes while driving through water logged areas. If the car stalls in between, do not try to push start or crank start. It is advisable to get technical help and towing the vehicle to the nearest authorized garage. Avoid parking the vehicle near a newly built compound wall or under big trees, as storms or heavy thundershowers may collapse them.

Personal Care

A well equipped first aid kit with bandage, pain relief spray, antiseptic cream, anti-allergics such as Avil and Aspirin should be kept handy, also carry umbrella / raincoats. People with serious illness should carry their prescribed medicines while traveling.

Is it right time to invest in pharma sectoral Mutual Funds ?

Of late Pharma sector is buzzing and all self certified analysts saying that this sector is recession proof.

Every time there is excessive optimism surrounding a sector in general or a stock, it is always difficult to get through to investors. So overtaken are investors with the lure of making easy money that they refuse to be rational. Common investors continue to remain invested till all the hype surrounding the sector/stock has peaked and subsequently waned. In the process, we, the investor, probably make a return that does not compensate for the commensurate risk.

If you invest through Mutual Funds, then the risk should be substantially lower than direct exposure and returns should be consistently reasonable for atleast 5 years. None of the sectoral scored in this count. Previously hype around IT sector and Infrastructure. They didn't perform well. You are well off in investing in the diversified mutual funds (esp. through SIP). Because the fund mangers is under no compulsion to hold a sector which has no value. But a sectoral Mutual fund manger could not park the money outside the sector.
Don't carried away by hype. History repeats. If you still wanted to invest then make sure that your exposure to any sector didn't exceed 10 percent of your portfolio.

In process - Dreaded Word in online trading

If you are a online customer of any of the newly started online trading sites, then you would have experienced the "in process" order problem. When you place any buy or sell order or modifying orders already placed, your brokers status window show as the order status as "in process" for several hours. You can't modify or delete the 'in process' order. Last year I encountered this problem @ Religare, I altogether stopped trading there.
But today I had this problem @ Reliance Money. (It is the first time). I am using Reliance Money Insta Trade which is the fastest platform available with them. Today I bought Nifty4500 Puts. I placed square off limit order @ Rs.69.50 around 11am. As market is gaining ,my put starts losing it's value. I tried to modify that order. Modify order page was not loading. Then I tried to delete my order. The oder status turned to "in process" . My un booked loss started to mount. Out of frustration I shutdown the computer and went out. ( You may ask me why  didn't you contact the customer care? If you contact them by email, their customer care official contact you only after 15days, by the time you would forgot the original problem). Reliance money should improve reliability of their system and customer care.
Happy end to the story. The order didn't got deleted and executed @69.50 in the afternoon and gave me around 15% return intra day. But this would not justify Reliance Money's erratic trading platform. ( some times it may be due to problem at NSE). Reliance money should learn about customer service from India Infoline.

Best Time to Place Order

You can't make any steadfast rule for the time of placing orders. But generally the best time to place a sell order is before 10.30am when all the Day traders are placing their orders. In India people afraid to go short. Hence on an average buy orders over weigh sell orders. For buying for delivery the best time is between 11.30am to 1.30pm and 2.50 pm to 3.15 pm.

Buy 3i Infotech and Assam Company


ASSAM  This week the market is expected to be volatile as usual. Oil price, company numbers, inflation rate and RBI's reaction to current economic situations are the key factors to watch with.

Reliance Comm-MTN merger talks could be in trouble

Reliance Communications’ (RCom) merger talks with South African major MTN could be in trouble reports the Businessline. The rivalry between the two Ambani brothers have come to the fore yet again, with Mr Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries Ltd claiming first right to the younger Ambani’s stake in Reliance Communications in the event of an equity swap with MTN.

Reacting to RIL’s claims, Reliance Communications in a statement said, “Last night, in a mala fide effort to disrupt the talks, Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL), part of the Mukesh Ambani group, has sent a communication to MTN Group, making a false claim of an alleged right of first refusal to buy the controlling stake in Reliance Communications Ltd (RCom). RIL’s claim is legally and factually untenable, baseless, and misconceived.”According to sources close to the Ambani family, the two sides had agreed that the other brother would have the first right of refusal in case of a large stake sale in any of the businesses owned by either of the brothers.

Dismissing RIL’s claims, the Anil Ambani camp said, “RIL has based its claim on an agreement of January 12, 2006, which was unilaterally signed only by RIL’s officials, when RCom was under RIL’s control, under a procedure which the Bombay High Court, vide its judgement dated October 15, 2006, has held to be “unfair and unjust”. RIL’s claim is born out of mounting despair and frustration at Reliance ADA Group’s continuing successes, and the support it enjoys from over 10 million investors, the world’s largest shareholding family.”

“Reliance Communications dismisses RIL’s claim with the contempt it deserves,” the statement said. With RCom saying that talks with MTN were progressing well, this could snowball into yet another court room battle between the two feuding brothers.

Reliance move to scuttle RCOM- MTN should be condemned. It is a Great injustice to the shareholders of RCOM>

Update on Ranbaxy - Pfizer interested?


CNBC TV18 reported that Pfizer is exploring the possibility of getting into the race. There is no confirmation from Pfizer, but we learn from our sources that Pfizer has sounded out its bankers to approach institutional shareholders. A possible bid for Ranbaxy at this stage may look difficult especially when the promoters who hold 34.8% have committed to sell their stake to Daiichi Sankyo.

Financial institutions hold 41.28% stake in the company, with insurance companies holding a total of 19.88% and foreign institutional investors (FIIs) with 17.95% stake. The public holding is 21.24%.

Life Insurance Corporation or LIC, the largest domestic shareholder is likely to play a key role as it holds 15.84% stake in the company. When contacted, LIC said at this point in time it has not been approached by any entity seeking support for either an open offer or a possible bid. Sources refused to divulge any more details and all they would say is that the global pharma major is exploring the possibility.
