"I foresee Indian stock markets piercing its earlier bottom in a very short span of time. Because foreign money, which has come into India built on hopes of reform and stablility will flow out of India and 50 percent of it was hedge fund money, which would always go out, come what may, forcing our interest rates, our fiscal deficit to rise because the government at the center is leftist leaning, it will increase subsidies, reforms will not take place. And I think coupled with rising petrol prices, commodity prices, India is in for a very very bad time," Vipin Aggarwal, director, Longview Research and Advisory Service said in New Delhi.

Left blames BJP for panic at bourses

By Sandeep Dikshit

NEW DELHI, MAY 17. The Left parties today accused the BJP of destabilising the stock markets as part of its "belligerent attitude" towards the new government supported by secular parties. The CPI(M) politburo member, Sitaram Yechury, told newspersons that the BJP had adopted a "politically belligerent posture" by refusing to attend the swearing-in ceremony. On the economic front, it had sought to "create volatility" in the stock markets in an attempt to unsettle the new government.

Mr. Yechury said "it was the duty" of the former Disinvestment Minister, Arun Shourie, to reveal the names of the 10 people who were part of a bear cartel involved in pushing down the market. "The Minister, at that time, had said he knew the names of those 10 people. Now that he is no longer in the government, he should share this information with the new government so that appropriate action could be taken against them." The CPI(M) leader said another reason for the fall in share values was the worldwide volatility in the stock markets. "The Indian stock exchanges cannot be isolated from this trend," he said.

Earlier, the CPI general secretary, A.B. Bardhan, interpreted the stock market crash as a "deliberate attempt on the part of Rightist forces to create a scare in view of the coming change of Government and the leading role played by the Left." He said that while the Left understood the usefulness and role of stock exchanges, it was sure that "certain forces who want to influence the political and economic policies of the country" were responsible for the stock market volatility. "We are not at all scared by this and appeal to those who have doubts that we are committed to stable economic growth that helps the country's poor and the economy in general and not just a section of the people."

Mr. Bardhan felt there was no reason for any section to get scared by today's crash. The Left wanted to convey the same message when the market crashed last week after their leaders called for a check on reckless disinvestment.

<span style='color:red'>The All-India Trade Union Congress general secretary, Gurudas Dasgupta, said the Left was not against foreign institutional investors (FIIs). </span> <!--emo&Big Grin--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo-->

The CPI (M) leader, Nilotpal Basu, said the stock market crash was not linked to economic fundamentals but was influenced by FIIs. The loss was "notional" and the crash demonstrated the need to carry out capital market reforms to facilitate the entry of small investors.

Heard the Grapevine in the sandhill rd in Silicon valley

- VC community is holding now and they are going to watch for a year.

Many angels are going to pull money out of India.

Large VCs are going to stop new investment and will wait for a year.

- Keep a watchout for any signs in the outsourcing investment

There may be signs of caution and hold.

<b>Press statement of Shri Arun Jaitley</b>

The strength of democracy is that Indian elections entail peaceful changes. A change in the Government has taken place. The NDA and the BJP have gracefully accepted the change. Therefore, there should be no reason for any panic in the society including the capital market.

A growth of capital market is vital for India's economy. Over the last six years of the NDA's Rule several capital reforms have taken place, which have strengthened the investors confidence in investment.<b> The Left Parties in India have won 60 odd seats in the Lok Sabha. The Left Parties have not been given mandate to rule this country on the strength of their communist ideology. There is no vindication of left economic policies by the electorate throughout the country</b>. Unfortunately outlandish statements by certain Left Party leaders indicate an attempt of their position in holding the balance of power. The statements indicate excessive political pressure on those drafting the agenda of the new Government. Some of the statements are on economic adventurism. These statements have adversely influenced the sentiments of the market and has sent negative signal to the investors.

The governance is a serious business. We hope those who are drafting agenda of the new Government will resist these pressures coming from those who wish to exercise powers without responsibility.

<b>The BJP ridicules the allegation made by certain Congress and Left Party leaders that the BJP is responsible for the fall in the stock market. Instead of analysing the reasons for the fall and if the Leaders of the future Government are indulging in such reckless allegations, it only shows their lack of understanding of the economy and the capital market.</b>

PTI/ Mumbai
The Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and the National Stock Exchange (NSE) rewrote history, with both key indices scaling their life-time highs after heavy institutional buying pushed up the broad-based market.
The market shrugged off the high international crude oil prices which ruled above the $53 a barrel. The market opened on a firm note and steadily marched ahead during the session with automobile, banking and oil & gas sector stocks taking the lead.

The 30 -stock sensex which opened 14 points higher at 6,700.79 and briefly slipped to a low of 6,691.18 points, later spurted up by 103 points to a new life-time high of 6,794.22 points in afternoon, surpassing its previous record of 6,725.92 touched on Tuesday morning.

Sensex ended at a historic closing high of 6,784.72 points, gaining a whopping 97.83 points or 1.46 per cent from Wednesday's close of 6,686.89

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--><b>PM 'loses sleep', markets lose points </b>
Pioneer News Service / New Delhi
Many years ago when the Harshad Mehta market boom was at its height, then <b>Finance Minister Manmohan Singh told Parliament that "I don't lose sleep over what happens in the share market."</b>

But this time he appears to have done so already. Finding the Sensex a bit too hot to handle, on Wednesday Prime Minister Manmohan Singh spoke to Finance Minister P Chidambaram about his concern on the market rally. As a result, the Finance Minister directed joint secretary capital markets UK Sinha to rush to Mumbai.

According to reports, the Government is investigating the role played by a large number of prominent NBFCs and broking firms in the wide swing in the stock market. A probe is also on to assess whether cooperative banks have been used for routing funding to brokers. Market is also abuzz with the news that Indian money stashed abroad is flowing back through FII sub-accounts.

<b>The Government and regulators have also stepped up vigilance, probing FII inflows through Mauritius. </b>Intelligence Bureau has despatched two additional directors to Mumbai to investigate whether any manipulation has led to the surge in the market.

<b>The Government's well-publicised concern over the PM 'loses sleep', markets lose points "unreal" market boom evidently triggered the correction on Thursday</b>. On top of it, the I-T crack down on the stockbrokers and other "suspect" market players played in a sharp decline in the Sensex and the collapse of the penny stocks boom.

In connection with the recent unjustified run-up in the penny stocks and small cap, the Income Tax Department on Thursday carried out raids on stock brokerages in Ahmedabad and Rajkot. The offices of five Gujarat-based stockbrokers have been raided. The brokerages raided in Ahmedabad include the Marwari Group, Praveen Ratilal Share Broker, Monarch Project and Finance, We & You and Mahipat Rai Chand.

The department raided 25 branch offices of the brokers in Mumbai, Ahmedabad and other cities in the region. According to reports, the brokers have been raided for allowing trade without margins. <!--emo&:angry:--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='mad.gif' /><!--endemo-->

Following the news, penny stocks lost further ground. Birla Ericsson, Maral Overseas and Aksh Optifibre ended the day in the red and the market tasted the sharpest fall after Black Monday of May 17. The benchmark index, the Sensex shed 265 points to close at 8,221.

The raids come a day after the market regulator SEBI said it plans to closely scrutinise any potential speculators.

However, towards the end of trading session on Thursday, Ministry of Finance clarified that the I-T Department is not conducting nationwide raids on brokerages. The officials have further said that no NBFC or broker is under the Finance Ministry's scanner, adding that there is no evidence of market manipulation yet. "It is not an alarmist situation. The 30 stocks of the Sensex and the 50 stocks on Nifty have been moving on fundamentals."

The Finance Ministry says that the burden of action if any lies with Sebi and RBI.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Company Affairs has advised that the small investors should be guided by strong fundamentals of the company whose shares they wish to deal in. Their decision should be based upon proper analysis of the background of the company, the promoters and other relevant considerations.

It said that economy is doing very well. Quarterly results of the companies in general reflect a very healthy growth rate, the Ministry said in a release
