<b>Bloodbath in stock market as Sensex sees historic fall</b><!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->The 'Tragic Thursday' surpasses all previous record falls of over 560 points in May 2004 and April 1992. The index on Thursday settled at 11,391.43, down by 6.76 per cent from last close.

While the loss was initially confined to 600 points, Tata Steel's below-than-expected quarterly earnings dealt a severe blow pushing the index down to the day's low of 11,330.45 - <b>registering an intra-day fall of 887 points</b>.

An unperturbed Finance Minister P Chidambaram declined to comment on the cataclysmic fall, saying "everyday movement in the stock markets does not require a comment." Two days ago, he had termed the 462-point fall as a "technical correction".

Who is behind? Same happened during Rao rule.

I think big scandal is behind this ride and collapse. We will know who is this new "Harshad Mehta".

Why collapse happened after assembly election and after collecting funds for election?

Time to think. <!--emo&Smile--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' /><!--endemo-->

There might be something to the timing but in general I think this correction is healthy. Inflated stocks were driving every other part of the economy crazy - esp in Guj/Mumbai where everybody I know was investing in stocks and making money (just on the fond hope that the ride will continue and FIIs will keep on dumping money).

My personal take - 8K has good support and after that 6K.

<b>Sensex rebounds 515 pts on support from funds</b>

MUMBAI: Stock market investors who were getting used to looking southward day after day for almost a month now, was treated to a surprise on Friday.

After crashing over 1,150 points in four consecutive sessions this week, the BSE sensex made a grand reversal during the day and closed a record 515 points higher at 9,810.

Backed by strong buying by foreign as well as domestic funds, and some late short covering, the index recorded its biggest singe-day gain ever on Friday. The rally led to a Rs 1.7 lakh crore addition to investors' wealth with BSE's market capitalisation now at Rs 25.2 lakh crore: also an all-time record.

Although the day's record breaking rally has brought some much needed relief to the battered investor sentiment, market players nonetheless are advising caution.

"It's early days and so pre-mature to say that we have seen the bottom,"said Manish Kanchan, CEO, Ambit Capital. Agrees Ambareesh Baliga, V-P, PCG, Karvy Stock Broking.

"We have moved from over exuberance to desperation (to get out) in a very short span of time. We still have some cautious days ahead,"Baliga said.

From a high of 12,671 on May 11, the sensex was down to this year's lows on Thursday and then came Friday's record upswing.

For investors, the crash till Thursday meant a loss of nearly Rs 11 lakh crore in less than a month. The recent crash has also forced most of the speculators out of the market inflicting heavy trading losses.

It has also brought down derivative positions built with borrowed money to negligible levels, market players said.

FIIs and some local funds bought some respite for investors before the weekend.

While value buying at bitten down prices by these two influential investor groups led to the 515-point sensex rally on Friday, some end-of-the-day short covering by speculators too helped the index gain some extra points towards close of session, market players said.

Last month it were the FIIs who started taking money off the table because they found they could get high risk-free returns in the US compared to risky returns in emerging markets like India, Brazil and others. In June however, the selling was mostly by mutual funds to meet increasing redemption pressure.

Bloodbath on Dalal Street
<b>It's Rs 250,000 cr loss in 3 days </b><!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Mumbai, December 12: The stock markets crashed for the second consecutive day on panic-selling by investors, plunging the <b>Sensex below 13,000-mark on a 400 point loss triggered by sluggish growth in industrial production</b>.

There was a virtual bloodbath on the back of Monday's crash due to RBI's decision to hike cash reserve ratio for banks, which wiped off about Rs 250,000 crore of investors' wealth in the last three trading sessions.

In erratic behaviour right from the morning,<b> the Sensex fluctuated and fell 600 points in intra-day trading </b>with heavyweights such as BHEL leading the slide after the government released the industrial output figures. <b>It later recovered to close at 12,995.02, a net fall of 404.41 points</b>.

Industrial production grew by 6.2 per cent in October, the lowest this fiscal, on account of a slowdown in manufacturing sector, especially consumer and capital goods
Third incidence since this government came into power. Either some bad intentions or UPA unable to control such fall.

<!--emo&:argue--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/argue.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='argue.gif' /><!--endemo--> CHEQUES AND BALANCES Judiciary needs some tips on functioning of the capital market
Sucheta DalalPosted online: Monday, April 09, 2007 at 0000 hrs Print Email
Over the last decade, one of the biggest challenges of securities regulators has been to sensitise the judiciary to the nuances of capital market regulation. We have seen strange judicial orders from appellate tribunals, the higher judiciary, and sometimes even the capital market regulator. The Securities Appellate Tribunal (SAT) had even taken upon itself to decide whether the stigma for wrongdoing should attach to a person indicted for insider trading. There have been innumerable cases where SAT has slashed monetary penalties to meaninglessness without understanding that punitive financial damages are the only real deterrent to financial crime.

And there have been cases when the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) thoughtlessly ordered the suspension of Depository Participants (DPs) without worrying about the enormous cost and hardship to investors to switch DP accounts — Sebi did not even think it was its job to facilitate the process. The most recent of such orders comes from the Bureau of Industrial and Financial Reconstruction (BIFR), which provided sweeping freedom for the shares of Dunlop India to be listed. What is worse, BIFR actually ordered Sebi as well as every market intermediary with a regulatory function to facilitate the listing without question, giving a go by to disclosure rules and processes that form the basis of a functioning capital market and proper investor protection.

Consider this: BIFR has allowed the company to make a rights issue of Rs 27 crore in the ratio of six shares for every 10 held, without bothering to seek shareholder approval in a general body meeting. The order permits Dunlop to issue 2.7 crore additional shares and also to enhance its authorised capital to Rs 75 crore from Rs 70 crore. It ‘directs’ stock exchanges of Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi and Chennai to lift the suspension on trading of Dunlop shares immediately (without going into the basis of their suspension since 2003). It also directs the National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL) and Central Depository Services Limited (CDSL) to allot an international securities identification number (ISIN) for the company’s entire share capital to enable trading of the newly allotted shares also in dematerialised form.

Armed with the BIFR orders, Dunlop has gone ahead and announced plans to open its rights issue without reference to the market regulator or intimation to the stock exchanges on which the shares will be listed. Many investors say that they have not even received intimation of the Rights Offer, which opened for subscription on 2 April and was set to close on 6 April, which is a bank holiday. Clearly, the company’s new management headed by Pawan Kumar Ruia does not really want existing shareholders to infuse funds for its revival. But since the new shares are being issued at par, the company has a good chance of revival and a well-known brand name, the rights offer is probably attractive to many investors. Why then should the BIFR exempt it from all listing processes?

Meanwhile, Sebi has responded to the investor complaint and asked Dunlop to “consider” extending its offer period by at least 15 days, in order to give shareholders a chance to participate in the issue. We also learn that the regulator plans to file an appeal against the BIFR order. If the order is not stayed, will Dunlop be able to bypass stock exchange and depository rules? Indeed it will; except that bourses and depositories may go-slow on listing processes in order to give the regulator a chance to file an appeal.

It is anybody’s guess which way this case will go and whether Dunlop will actually manage to cut through the rules with the help of a statutory order. But this is neither the first nor the last time that India’s judicial system will fail to understand the financial markets and issue orders based on the petition of only one section of the stakeholders.

For instance, a few years ago, C R Bhansali, whose financial conglomerate had collapsed like a pack of cards in the mid-1990s, had attempted to make a comeback through a similar court order. At that time, a Delhi court had ordered the Reserve Bank of India to waive its regulatory requirements to facilitate the revival of CRB. Naturally, this had the support of CRB’s many stakeholders since it was their only hope of getting their money back. The court issued its orders based on the support of these stakeholders without considering the damage to the financial system. RBI had filed an appeal against the order and, although one does not know what happened to the case, the CRB group has certainly not managed to resurrect itself.

The Haryana-based Vikas WSP is another notorious company that could be in line to follow the Dunlop route. The company has been severely indicted by the Company Law Board on several counts of mismanagement and worse, and its shares are delisted by the bourses since 2001. Yet, a large group of investors headed by a senior army officer (retired) is lobbying hard for its revival and re-listing since the company is making money and they are the only losers in the de-listing process.

The company makes edible gum used in ice creams and the commodity attracts suspiciously high trading volumes on India’s commodity futures bourses. In this case, investors’ anxiety is completely understandable; but is the re-listing of a company, with the same questionable family-owner management the answer? One of these days, this issue too could lead to another strange judicial order.

In what seems to be another Black Wednesday in the making, India’s stock markets crashed heavily at opening on Wednesday. The Bombay Stock Exchange’s Sensex crashed more than 1700 points, while the National Stock Exchange`s Nifty was down more than 500 points. In a move to curb the down circuit, trading has been suspended for one hour.

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->  Atlast the bubble has burst. So, who was responsible for the crash and who benefitted from it?
1. Market manipulators allowing the index to reach the dizzy heights only to cash on it later?
2. FIIs who wants to make some fast buck in crores and thus taking the Indian stock exchange for a ride?
3. Politicians involved in huge buying and selling of shares?
4. Terrorists organizations which are cash crunched found a new route to make quick money in crores of ruppes?

I think everyone is a party to it and a market crash of this magnititue can happen only in India with no stringent norms in place. How good are our SEBI, RBI and our esteem FM to prevent this reoccurrence? None. India is run by stooges.

Did anyone give a thought about thousands of small time investors from the middle class family and what would have happened to their money due to this crash? Who cares is the attitude of our politicans. India will not change and it will be continued to be harassed.

<b>slogan shouting against FM outside BSE </b>

MUMBAI: Upset over Tuesday's stock market meltdown, some investors demonstrated outside the Bombay Stock Exchange to voice their resentment against Finance Minister P Chidambaram.

The investors shouted slogans against Chidambaram, holding him responsible for the crash in the market this morning. The BSE Sensex plunged 2,029 points within minutes of opening today, hit the lower circuit breaker leading to stoppage of trading for around an hour.

When trading re-opened, the market partially recovered but was still in the red.
