Closing Summary, Market Synopsis: 28th March, 2013

Closing Market Update:
The Indian benchmarks ended on a strongly positive note on March 28, 2013. After opening slightly down on the back of international cues, they drifted down further. However, a strong buying in the second half at support levels pushed the benchmarks higher to close almost at the high point of the day. Extremely poor global cues had a cascading effect on the indices, which stayed in the negative territory for most part of the day. However, sentiment changed towards the last half an hour which helped the benchmarks close higher. Midcaps that were butchered in the past few sessions also rebounded with notable gains. These led the Sensex to close at the level of 18835.77 i.e. up by 131.24 points and the Nifty to close at the level of 5682.55 i.e. up by 40.95 points. The midcap index and the small cap index closed in green with the gain of nearly one and one-half of a percentage point and one and one-third of a percentage point respectively. On the sectoral front all the indicies except one closed in green. Metal Index was the biggest gainer with the gain of more than two and two- third of a percentage point. This was followed by Capital Goods Index which closed with the gain of nearly two and one-fifth of a percentage point. On the other hand Auto Index closed as the biggest looser with the loss of three-fourth of a percentage point.

Further, the market breadth closed positive as eight stocks were seen advancing against five declining stocks.

BMA Inspiration: Indian Classical Musician and Shehnai Maestro Ustaad Bismillah Khan

Ustad Bismillah Khan was born as Qamaruddin Khan in Bhirung Raut ki Gali at Dumraon, Bihar. He was born as the second son of Paigambar Khan and Mitthan. He hailed from the family of musicians, wherein his ancestors were musicians in the court of princely states of Bhojpur, now in Bihar. His father was a shehnai player in the court of Maharaja Keshav Prasad Singh, Dumraon. His named was changed to Bismillah by his grandfather Rasool Baksh Khan. On being relocated to Varanasi at his maternal uncle at the age of 6, Bismillah received formal training in music from him, Ali Baksh 'Vilayatu', a renowned shehnai player at Vishwanath Temple, Varanasi.

Bismillah Khan practiced the shehnai devotedly and perfected in a short span of time. It was his concert in All India Music Conference in Calcutta in 1937 which brought shehnai into the limelight. It was highly appreciated by the common masses and shehnai became associated with Bismillah. His live performance at Delhi's Red Fort became an inseparable part of the celebration of the first Independence Day in 1947, when he was invited by the first Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Later on January 26, 1950, he even performed at, yet again, Red Fort on the eve of India's first Republic Day. His recital was telecast on Doordarshan every year as part of cultural activities in Independence Day celebrations. He performed almost at every place across the globe. He took active participation in the Cannes Art Festival and Osaka Trade Fair. Continuing his musical presence, he was invited in the World Exposition in Montreal. The modesty and simplicity of Bismillah Khan was reflected in his lifestyle. He believed that music has nothing to do with caste and religion. Although he was a dedicated Shi'ite Muslim, he was a staunch devotee of the Hindu goddess of music, Saraswati.

Ustad Bismillah Khan will always be remembered for his remarkable contribution to the Indian music. He is the only one to make the shehnai one of the most popular classical music instruments across the world. He was the perfect and unbeatable synonym for shehnai.

While keeping the magic of shehnai alive round the world, Bismillah tried his hand at some movies as well. He played the shehnai for Kannada film 'Sanaadi Appanna' and had even acted in the Satyajit Ray movie 'Jasaghar'. The sound of shehnai in the 1959 film 'Goonj Uthi Shehnai' was provided by this music legend. He recorded for his last movie in 2006 in 'Swades' for the song 'Yeh Jo Des Hai Tera'.

Ustad Bismillah Khan was admitted to Heritage Hospital on August 17, 2006 and four days later, died of a cardiac arrest on August 21. A day of national mourning was announced by the Government of India on his death. He was buried, along with a Shehnai, at Fatermain burial ground, Old Varanasi with a 21-gun salute from the Indian Army. He is survived by five sons, three daughters, and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

This could lead to changes , according to a report by global ratings firm Standard & Poor's or S&P. 

The S&P report said that banks face a constant need to replenish capital at regular intervals to support their high growth. Starting April 1, 2013, Indian banks will begin to implement the new Basel III capital requirement, which will increase their capital requirement in phases. 

The ratings firm estimates that Indian banks will require minimum additional capital of about Rs 691 billion to meet the Reserve Bank of India's 8% requirement for the common equity tier 1 and capital conservation buffer ratio. The additional capital requirement could rise to Rs 2.6 trillion, given a tendency for banks to hold higher-than-minimum capital and the limited market for hybrid instruments in India. 

Ttop-tier Indian banks are relatively well-placed to manage the transition toward Basel III and the demands of a high-growth banking system, according to S&P 

"The biggest challenge for the Indian banking sector is the state of Indian public finances," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Deepali Seth in a media release. "The government's large fiscal deficit will limit its ability to inject capital into government-owned banks, which currently have less capital adequacy than the private and foreign banks operating in India." 

Some smaller banks may face difficulties on the path to achieving Basel III; the extent will vary from bank to bank. For some weakly capitalized banks, the capital requirement could go up to two to three times their current market capitalization, Ms. Seth said. 

"As banks simultaneously tap the capital market, some may struggle to raise the necessary capital. A few of the smaller banks could become potential takeover targets, which could result in consolidation in India's currently fragmented banking sector," she added.

The Indian benchmarks ended on a strongly positive note on March 14, 2013, when they closed near to the high point of the day. After opening flat, the markets were drifting in a narrow band. However, media reports of involvement of private banks in money laundering dampened the sentiment and pushed the market down to the day’s low.

Morning Summary,Market Synopsis : 14th March, 2013

Good Morning Everyone,
The major Indian equity benchmarks started the day on a flat note taking cues from Asian markets as indicies there traded down today as a fall in realty shares weighed on the Hong Kong market and on caution in South Korea before Bank of Korea's monetary policy decision later today.. Post opening, markets were trading in a similar range as that of opening price. Caution was prevailing ahead of the release of domestic inflation data for February around 1130 IST today. Suddenly report of a scam by a Private bank on a website spooked the sentiment and pushed the market down. This led the Sensex to trade near the level of 19237.36 i.e. down by 125.19 points & the Nifty to trade near the level of 5813.7 i.e. down by 37.5 points. The Midcap index and the small cap index are trading in red with the loss of six-tenth of a percentage point each.. On the sectoral front, all the indices are trading in red. Healthcare Index is trading as the least looser with loss of ten basis points of a percentage point. On the other hand, Consumer Durables Index is the biggest looser with the loss of one and one-tenth of a percentage point. This is followed by Bank Index which is trading with the loss of more than one percentage point.

Further, the market breadth is negatively placed as two stocks were seen advancing against five declining stocks.

Closing Summary, Market Synopsis: 13th March, 2013


The Indian benchmarks ended on a weak note on March 13, 2013, when they closed near to the low point of the day. There was liquidation of long positions by traders as there was no follow up buying support from institutions. Again conflicting economic indicators is keeping investors on the tenterhooks. Industrial output in January was better than expected at 2.4 percent, but consumer inflation continued to be above 10 percent, underscoring the problems in the economy. Investors also refrained from taking aggressive positions ahead of the Reserve   Bank of India's mid-quarter policy review scheduled next week. These led the Sensex to close at the level of 19362.55 i.e. down by 202.37 points and the Nifty to close at the level of 5851.2 i.e. down by 62.90 points. The midcap index and the small-cap index closed in red with the loss of one percentage point and one and a quarter of a percentage point respectively. On the sectoral  front, all the indices, excepting one  sectoral index  closed in red. FMCG Index closed as the major gainer with the gains of half a percentage point. On the other hand Bank Index was the biggest looser with the loss of two and one-tenth of a percentage point. This was followed by Consumer Durables Index, which closed with the loss of slightly more than one and half a percentage point.

Further, the market breadth closed in negative as one stock was seen advancing against three declining stocks.

Precious metals are trading slightly lower with Gold at $1590.50, down by $1.50 and Silver is trading at $29.05, lower by 11 cents at 0.40% at the time of writing this.

NYMEX Oil prices are trading higher by half a percent or 41 cents at $92.95 while Gas futures are at $3.629, lower by 0.44%.

While, on the other hand, a higher CPI figure spooked the sentiment and pushed the benchmarks down. At lower levels demand pressure emerged and again took the benchmarks to the day’s high. However, they could not sustain here and closed weaker. These led the Sensex to close at the level of 19564.92 i.e. down by 81.29 points and the Nifty to close at the level of 5914.10 i.e. down by 28.25 points. The midcap index and the small-cap index closed in red with the loss of nearly two-third of a percentage point and more than half a percentage point respectively.

Morning Summary,Market Synopsis : 12th March, 2013

Good Morning Everyone, 
The major Indian equity benchmarks started the day on a flat note despite mildly positive cues from overseas markets. The positive economic data continued to buoy sentiment in US markets with continued weakness in the yen aiding Japanese shares. Markets are consolidating the gains made during last week. Again the traders are cautious as gains may be capped ahead of India's industrial production data for January to be released today. This led the Sensex to trade near the level of 19652.12 i.e. up by 5.91 points & the Nifty to trade near the level of 5942.95 i.e. up by 0.60 points. The Midcap index and the small cap index are trading in green with the gain of fifteen basis points of a percentage point and more than one third of a percentage point respectively. On the sectoral front, except three, all the indices are trading in green. Oil & Gas Index is trading as the major gainer with gains of eight-tenth of a percentage point. This is followed by Auto Index which is trading with the gains of more than half a percentage point. On the other hand, IT Index is the biggest looser with the loss of seven-tenth of a percentage point.

Further, the market breadth is neutrally placed as three stocks are seen advancing against two declining stocks.
