Subdued start! Data interpretation time for market

It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts. - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The market managed to hold on to gains for the last two days minimizing any sentiment damage following the BJP drubbing in New Delhi elections. For now the Aam Aadmi Party says it will not contest assembly elections in other states. With political events as good as over as the market is concerned, the focus will now shift to the Union budget.

For the day a lot of attention could be on macro data. The government has changed the base year for calculating CPI to 2012 from 2010 and the first monthly estimate of retail inflation using the new series will be out today. GDP numbers were revised recently. The rebasing has caused some amount of confusion and bewilderment among economists. There are significant interpretational issues for the new series too. No immediate impact of higher growth estimates are expected on either the fiscal or monetary policy. Industrial production (IIP) data for December 2014 will also be released today.

The outlook is a subdued start. The global indices are on a lull. Eurozone finance ministers could not really solve their differences with Greece. The ministers will now meet on Monday. Greece wants to overhaul 30% of its bailout obligations while EU ministers want Greece to abide by existing terms. Greece's government says conditions of the €240bn bailout have impoverished Greece.

US stocks ended flat. Asian markets are mixed with Japan's Nikkei 1.5% higher while Hong Kong's Hang Seng index and China’s Shanghai are marginally lower.

The much-feared general anti avoidance rules (GAAR) could be deferred by about two years so that business sentiment is allowed to improve in India but will need to be rolled out in some form or the other by 2017, in sync with the international framework on preventing treaty abuse that's been accepted by the G20, says a report.

In a relief for Jindal Steel and Power Ltd (JSPL) and its promoter Naveen Jindal, Delhi High Court directed a technical committee to review its own decision to change the end-use of two coal blocks earlier allotted to the company and removing the mines from the auction.

Focus on budget peps up Sensex, Nifty

The Indian equity market extended its gains for the second consecutive trading session despite the historic win by the Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi. Expectations that the BJP-government would stick to a reform-oriented Budget seems to be in the air.

Commenting on the current market situation, Amar Ambani, Head of research IIFL, said, "After going through a short term corrective phase, the pre-budget rally seems to have resumed again. Although markets had a testing time in the past week, positive macro outlook and expectations that the reform agenda will continue despite the thumping win by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) seems to have soothed nerves. Investors will have to watch how events unfold in Greece."

The Sensex opened with a positive gap of 94 points at 28,450, and went on to rally to a high of 28,619 led by strong gains in banking, infrastructure and metal shares.

Select index heavyweights like - Larsen & Toubro, Reliance Industries, Axis Bank and ICICI Bank, contributed almost 75 per cent of the day's gains. The BSE Sensex ended higher for the second straight trading session, up 178 points at 28,534, while the four heavyweights mentioned contributed 132 points to the BSE index today.

The NSE Nifty jumped to a high of 8,652, and settled with a gain of 62 points at 8,627.

The breadth too was fairly positive with more than two advancing shares for every single declining stock. Out of 1,693 stocks traded on the NSE, 1,015 advanced and 480 declined today.

Among sectors - the CNX Metal and the Infrastructure indices surged 1.7 per cent each to 2,520 and 3,127, respectively. The Bank Nifty rallied a per cent to 18,929.

Elsewhere in the world, markets were mostly subdued as they await the outcome from the crucial extraordinary meeting in Brussels. The Euro Zone finance ministers are scheduled to meet later in the day to discuss the Greece debt crisis.

Hong Kong's Hang Seng index was down 0.9 per cent at 24,315, the Nikkei shed 0.3 per cent at 17,653. The Shanghai Composite index was up 0.5 per cent at 3,158.
