The Sensex closed 17.3% higher at 14,284.21, while the 50-stock S&P CNX Nifty rallied 17.7% to 4,323.15.

"The election in India is showing a clear mandate there, and probably underlines to a lot of investors there that Asia is going to be the growth area for the next six to nine months, whereas growth in Europe and U.S. could take much longer," said Andrew Sullivan, a sales trader at Main First Securities in Hong Kong.

Minutes after the opening, the 30-stock Sensitive Index, or Sensex, rose 10.7% while the National Stock Exchange Nifty rose 14.5%, triggering a two-hour trading suspension. Immediately at the resumption of trade, shares surged further, prompting a trading suspension for the rest of the day.

"A pro-reform/stable government is just what India needs, amid signs of economic expectations bottoming out, to inspire investor confidence. We have argued that the stability of the newly-elected government, rather than the coalition dynamics, would be crucial for" sentiment, said analysts at Standard Chartered.

Some market observers were disappointed, however. Sharmila Joshi, an investment adviser in Mumbai, said "I have never seen anything like this... These kind of gap-up openings are ultimately bad for the market, as they don't give one a chance to participate. Today, it was impossible to participate."

Among the big gainers, shares of market heavyweight Reliance Industries climbed 20.6% and ICICI Bank advanced 25.4%, while property major DLF gained 25.9%.

 Wall Street updates

The 50-share Nifty today soared 531.65 points in the opening trade which led to the regulators closing the equity and equity derivatives market closed for two hours. Following opening, Nifty further went up 651.50 points to 4,323.15, which triggered a halt for the day.

This circuit breaker brings about a coordinated trading halt in all equity and equity derivative markets nationwide and
are triggered by movement of either Sensex or Nifty, whichever is breached earlier.

Also the Sensex today soared by 2,111 points to close at 14,284.21 points. It had surged 1,760 points at 13,963, hitting the upper circuit following which trading was halted for two hours. After the trading was resumed, the Sensex soared 806 points at 14,284.21 triggering a halt for the day.

On March 31, 2008, the last trading day of the quarter, Sensex closed at 9,708.50 points. The absolute points of Sensex variation which would trigger market wide circuit breaker for any day in the quarter between April 1 and June 30 would be 975 points for first 10 per cent trigger point, 1,450 points for the second 15 per cent trigger point and 1,950 points for the final 20 per cent trigger.

Similarly for the Nifty, the three trigger points in the current quarter would be 300 points, 440 points and 600 points - based on a closing level of 3,020.95 points on March 31. In case of a 10 per cent movement of either of these indices, there would be a one hour market halt if the movement takes place before 1 pm.
 Wall Street updates
In case of a 15 per cent movement of either index, there will be a two hour market halt if the movement takes place before 1 pm. If the 15 per cent trigger is reached on or after 1 pm but before 2 pm, there will be a one hour halt. If the 15 per cent trigger is reached on or after 2 pm the trading will halt for the remainder of the day.

In case of a 20 per cent movement of the index, the trading will be halted for the remainder of the day.

Scalping is a strategy where day traders establishes and liquidates a position very quickly. This strategy usually takes place within minutes or even seconds.

Shorting stocks strategy is when day traders assume that the stock they purchased will rise. Another shorting stocks strategy is that they tend to borrow stocks from brokers and sells it hoping that the price will go down and buy it again.

Day trading is not an easy thing to do. You need to have the following qualities in order to be successful in this kind of business.

Firstly, you have to consider that day trading is mentally and psychologically challenging. You should always be focused on the trades. You should also know how to decide what to do quickly when you see a trend in a particular stock.

Always remember that day trading is not easy on the first months. This is why you should expect losing when you are just starting to day trade. Also, you will need enough capital in order for you to be successful in day trading.

Nifty updates April 2009 - Nifty premium widens

NSE stock Updates - Trade on Indian bourses was extremely choppy on Wednesday, with a steep fall initially on weak cues from global markets and a smart recovery later. The lower levels triggered heavy short covering as well as strong buying in frontline stocks, and even more aggressively in mid and small caps.

National Stock Exchange’s (NSE) 50-share Nifty ended 2.65 per cent higher at 3342.95 from Monday’s close. Intraday, the index touched a high of 3357.05 bouncing off a low of 3149.25. The top gainers were HCL Technologies (11.13%), Nalco (8.71%), GAIL (7.33%) and Unitech (7.07%).

In futures, Nifty April provisionally ended at a premium of 12 points, expanding from 5 points Monday. The contract price rose 2.89 per cent and open interest added enormous 60.79 lakh shares (provisional). The buy quantity was nearly twice that of sell, which indicates short covering and build up of long positions.

On the options front, unwinding of short positions was observed at Nifty strikes 3300 and 3200 while call buying was seen from 3400-3600 levels. On the other hand, put writing was witnessed at strikes 3300 and 3200. This hints at extended gains near term.

“The rally in late trade reminded me of Mark Mobius’ words that the Bull Run has already started. Now all eyes are on corporate earnings and the parliamentary elections. Any positive development on this front may lead Nifty to 3800 level and any unfavorable development may see some correction in the near term. However, at current levels I don’t expect any heavy correction,” said Kapil Mehta, analyst at Flexion Advisory.

19/3/09 - BSE, NSE surpasses key psycological checkpoints (levels)

After a firm opening taking cues from global shores, investors took to profit booking at higher levels. Sentiment worsened after inflation eased close to zero -- a sharp slide towards deflationary territory. The annual rate of inflation fell by as much as 200 basis points to a historic low of 0.44 percent for the week ended March 7 against 2.43 percent for the week before.

However, the silver lining to the fall in inflation rate was that the central bank may take some steps soon to help lower the cost of credit for the corporate sector and push demand, which helped lift sentiment. A positive opening on the European bourses also lent support.

“Investors were clearly looking at booking profits at short intervals. The Nifty is now trading in a range of 2825-2750. On the upside, the index faces resistance around 2800-2830 levels while the support is around 2750-2740 levels. If the Nifty falls below 2750, then a correction right upto 2675 seems possible,” said Manas Jaiswal, senior technical analyst at Emkay Shares and Stock Brokers.

National Stock Exchange’s Nifty ended above the crucial level of 2800; at 2807.15, up 0.45 per cent or 12.85 points. The index moved in a range of 2822.25 and 2771.35. Bombay Stock Exchange’s Sensex settled at 9,001.75, up 25.07 points or 0.28 per cent. The index swung in a 100-point band through the day.

Tips for how to finalise between Debt and Equities

following tips by renowed and experienced professional will surely help you in finalising between debt and equities thus increasing your confidence in share markets amid various turmoils and uncertainities prevelant in this domain of Stock market investing.

open your Account for online share trading now - FREE

The stock market's troubles are far from over. The biggest concerns – inflation and high crude prices – continue to bog world economy, despite the latter now showing a downward movement.

A big challenge for the corporate sector is high input costs and, for the tech sector, the US recession. In fact, between them, these two factors are bound to affect the performance of several other sectors.

Do's and Dont's of Share Markets

In this background, short-term investors should invest in debt products as they give assured returns, in doubt-digits at that. On the other hand, if – and only if – investors are prepared to wait for at least three years, they can look at equity. But they need to invest in a staggered manner.

For instance, look at daily and weekly STPs (systematic transfer plans). Here, a lump sum gets invested in a debt fund with a fixed amount getting transferred from it to an equity or balanced fund regularly.

This will allow the investor to take advantage of market volatility by spreading his exposure. STPs are also cheaper as fund houses do not charge any entry fee for the transfer. However, STPs are applicable for investments of over Rs 50K as a smaller corpus can get invested in a matter of days.

Investors with a long-term view can also look at accumulating stocks in sectors such as capital goods, construction, media and entertainment. In the case of construction, the investment would be 'contrarian', as the sector has been beaten down heavily in the last few months.

Aggressive investors can also look at banking and financial services as these could get a much-needed reform boost soon. But remember that these sectors are still not free from the problem of high interest rates. In the end, it’s you who will have to decide whether you have the confidence in the potential of the stock markets.

India allows sovereign funds to buy shares directly

also read : New to online share trading?

India's stock market regulator on Thursday allowed sovereign wealth funds, university funds, endownments and charitable trusts to register as foreign institutional investors (FIIs).

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) said in a statement asset management firms founded by overseas Indians can also register as FIIs, which will enable them to buy and sell shares directly through a broker.

Last year, the regulator had curbed the use of participatory notes, or P-notes, used by unregistered foreigners to take exposure in Indian stocks.

At that time, SEBI had said it wanted portfolio investors to register to help it track the source of funds.

Book Building Process - Explained

When ever a company goes public it has to bring it's IPO(Initial Public Offer) in the market with a price band which is set by the promoters of the company and the whole process is to be completed according to the guidelines of SEBI. No company can breach the guidelines for an IPO as described by the sebi in it's red herring prospectus. Book Building process goes from various stages which are explained here in detail.

Book Building is basically a capital issuance process used in Initial Public Offer (IPO) which aids price and demand discovery. It is a process used for marketing a public offer of equity shares of a company. It is a mechanism where, during the period for which the book for the IPO is open, bids are collected from investors at various prices, which are above or equal to the floor price. The process aims at tapping both wholesale and retail investors. The offer/issue price is then determined after the bid closing date based on certain evaluation criteria.

The Process for Book Building:

  • The Issuer who is planning an IPO nominates a lead merchant banker as a 'book runner'.
  • The Issuer specifies the number of securities to be issued and the price band for orders.
  • The Issuer also appoints syndicate members with whom orders can be placed by the investors.
  • Investors place their order with a syndicate member who inputs the orders into the 'electronic book'. This process is called 'bidding' and is similar to open auction.
  • A Book should remain open for a minimum of 5 days.
  • Bids cannot be entered less than the floor price.
  • Bids can be revised by the bidder before the issue closes.
  • On the close of the book building period the 'book runner evaluates the bids on the basis of the evaluation criteria which may include -
    Price Aggression
    Investor quality
    Earliness of bids, etc.
  • The book runner and the company conclude the final price at which it is willing to issue the stock and allocation of securities.
  • Generally, the number of shares are fixed, the issue size gets frozen based on the price per share discovered through the book building process.
  • Allocation of securities is made to the successful bidders.
  • Book Building is a good concept and represents a capital market which is in the process of maturing.

Guidelines for Book Building

Rules governing book building is covered in Chapter XI of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Disclosure and Investor Protection) Guidelines 2000.

Book Building in BSE ( Bombay Stock Exchange)

  • BSE offers the book building services through the Book Building software that runs on the BSE Private network.
  • This system is one of the largest electronic book building networks anywhere spanning over 350 Indian cities through over 7000 Trader Work Stations via eased lines, VSATs and Campus LANS.
  • The software is operated through book-runners of the issue and by the syndicate member brokers. Through this book, the syndicate member brokers on behalf of themselves or their clients' place orders.
  • Bids are placed electronically through syndicate members and the information is collected on line real-time until the bid date ends.
  • In order to maintain transparency, the software gives visual graphs displaying price v/s quantity on the terminals.

Initial Public Offerings

Corporates may raise capital in the primary market by way of an initial public offer, rights issue or private placement. An Initial Public Offer (IPO) is the selling of securities to the public in the primary market. This Initial Public Offering can be made through the fixed price method, book building method or a combination of both.In case the issuer chooses to issue securities through the book building route then as per SEBI guidelines, an issuer company can issue securities in the following manner:
1. 100% of the net offer to the public through the book building route.
2. 75% of the net offer to the public through the book building process and 25% through the fixed price portion.

Difference between shares offered through book building and offer of shares through normal public issue:

Fixed Price Process :

  • Price at which the securities are offered/allotted is known in advance to the investor.
  • Demand for the securities offered is known only after the closure of the issue
  • Payment if made at the time of subscription wherein refund is given after allocation.

Book Building Process :

  • Price at which securities will be offered/allotted is not known in advance to the investor. Only an indicative price range is known.
  • Demand for the securities offered can be known everyday as the book is built.
  • Payment only after allocation.

Procedure for listing of an IPO in Stock Exchanges

Procedure for IPO listing is as follows

1) Company decide to go public and raise fund from the market. They decide upon the Total amount to be raised from the Market. They get clarification from SEBI. This amount is broken down in number of shares by deciding the Face Value (FV).

2) As per the norms of the SEBI the FV is to be multiple of 5. Normal practice is keeping this @Rs 10. Other denominations that are followed are Rs 5 and Rs 15. This depends on the Strength of the company and the permission of SEBI. Rs 10 is commonly used because calculation becomes simple and it can also be broken in percentage terminology whithout using decimals and complex numbers.

3) Now the No of shares to be introduced in the Market is Decided. In IPO the demand and supply of the market forces leeds to an open and close price which is normally reflected as the Price Band... That becmes the initial offer price to public.

4) Depending upon the response (i.e: Demand) of the Stock as IPO, when it is opend on Secondary Market the price is decided. Normally those IPOs which have gone oversubscribed obviously does have lesser supply in the Market and the entire marketbecomes Bullish on this stock. So, again there becomes price appreciation of the Stock in the share market.

5) the combined collection of the firm from IPO and Secondary Market operations becomes the Market Capitalisation of the firm, from which a share of Profitability is distributed among the share holders in the form of Dividend (when to announce depends on the business conditions)The parameter of Dividend Distribution has nothing to do with the FV so if you will calculate it from his basic you will never reach to any conclusion.
