Sensex rebounds by 213 points on bargian hunting

first_imgBargain hunting and unravelling of short positions by investors propelled a barometer index of the Indian equities markets into provisionally closing with gains of 213 points on Thursday.The barometer 30-scrip sensitive index (Sensex) of the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) made gains after six consecutive days of losses. It provisionally closed higher by 213 points or 0.85 percent during the day’s trade.Similarly, the wider 50-scrip Nifty of the National Stock Exchange (NSE) made gains during the day’s trade. It rose by 71 points or 0.93 percent at 7,683.25 points.The Sensex of the S&P Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), which opened at 25,136.71 points, provisionally closed at 25,248.56 points (at 3.30 p.m.) — up 212.52 points or 0.85 percent from the previous day’s close at 25,036.05 points.The Sensex touched a high of 25,289.58 points and a low of 25,034.14 points during the intra-day trade.The barometer index had receded by 1,134.23 points during the last six consecutive sessions, whereas the NSE Nifty declined by 343 points.Market observers said that short coverings of position by investors led the relief rally after six consecutive days of losses.”Markets ended in the green after six straight sessions of losses led by covering of short positions by traders,” Vaibhav Agarwal, vice president and research head at Angel Broking, told IANS.Agarwal pointed out that markets positive trajectory might be short-lived due to the logjam in parliament and absence of fresh triggers.”We do not expect any meaningful upside from current levels in the absence of any major trigger,” Agarwal elaborated.”Investors will watch out for inflation and industrial production data over the next couple of days, for further direction. We also expect volatility to spike next week ahead of the US FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) meet.”Lately investors confidence was eroded due to the logjam in parliament which has dimmed the prospects of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) bill getting passed during the winter session.Should the bill not secure clearance in this session, it will miss its intended roll-out date of 1 April next year.Moreover, the continued selling of equities by the foreign investors ahead of a likely US rate hike spooked investors.Apart from value buying and short coverings, forecast of positive monthly industrial output and inflation data points slated to be released on Friday brought back investors said Anand James, co-head, technical research desk with Geojit BNP Paribas Financial Services.”Forecast and expectations of healthy index of industrial production (IIP) data and cooling of consumer price index (CPI) has added positive sentiment to the markets,” James told IANS.last_img read more

AL begins illpolitics Fakhrul

first_imgBNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir speaks at a discussion meeting at the National Press Club on Saturday. Photo: Prothom AloThe Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) secretary general, Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, on Saturday alleged the Bangladesh Awami League-led (AL) government has begun “ill politics”, as it did during the 2014 general elections.“The government has begun doing whatever needs to keep BNP away [from the elections],” Mirza Fakhrul told a discussion at the National Press Club in the capital.BNP-led 20-party alliance partner Bangladesh Kalyan Party organised the discussion marking the tenth founding anniversary of the party.“What do you [AL] want to bring through this ill-politics? Do you want to hold an election like that of 5 January 2014? You’ve started doing whatever is required to keep the 20-party alliance as well as BNP away [from the elections],” said Mirza Fakhrul.Warning the AL government against any move to hold 5-January like elections once again, the BNP spokesperson said, “The people of Bangladesh will never allow elections like that of 2014. Don’t underestimate the people of Bangladesh. Don’t think that they will tolerate everything.”Dwelling on the prime minister and AL president Sheikh Hasina’s allegation that Zia family has siphoned money to Saudi Arabia, Fakhrul said, “We’ve enquired about the allegation. We’ve talked to ambassadors. It has no basis. This is unfounded.”About the disappearance of Kalyan Party general secretary Aminur Rahman, the BNP leader said, “Even the general secretary of a political party has been forced to disappear. His whereabouts remain unknown over the last 97 days.“Former ambassadors are being picked up from their cars. MPs, university teachers, physicians, engineers, our leaders Ilias Ali, [city corporation] commissioner Chowdhury Alam and numerous people have been forced to disappear.“Where will you go? They will make anyone who differs from their [AL] views disappear. Can we call this party [AL] democratic? This party struggled to establish democracy in the past. Its original character, that is fascist character, is exposed whenever it comes to power,” Fakhrul added.    Kalyan Party chairman Syed Muhammad Ibrahim told the discussion that the AL-led government with all its power is hatching conspiracies to silence the 20-party alliance.last_img read more
