NALCO (National Aluminum Company) a state-run company, operating in orrisa, is the third largest produce of aluminum had to reduce production of 6% on daily basis due to power supply cut.

MCX on another side got the approval of IPO and they are planning offstake 12.5% of their holding. To boost Infra bonds government has decreased the minimum FII limit to $5billion and lock-in period is decreased to 1 year from 3 years. Industry official said lock-in period was not the problem but the problem was 20% tax that was levied by indian government on such investment. Another such issue was that IRDA (Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority) has planned to stop giving sanction to High NAV gurantee plans because they make market to fall further as they do heavy selling when they get small profits to avoid loss. So guys dont get attracted by Plans which gurantee’s u high NAV rather invest urself.

Today NIFTY in the morning gave a good start to cover the gap which i mentioned yesterday at 4990-5040. Now NIFTY is left with one gap around 5209-5330 which must be filled up sooner or later. MACD is still flat on daily chart without a bearish crossover so be cautious. A remarkable point to notice today was that NIFTY made a low at same point which it made yesterday making 4911 a strong support. NIFTY still has that “inverted head and Shoulder” intact.. More time it takes to built up more significant is the breakout of the pattern. So fingers crossed for the bulls. Strategy is yet to be cautious on NIFTY.
