Dow Jones launches India index

Dow Jones will launch two new indexes, the Global Dow and a blue-chip index for India, News Corp. chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch announced Monday in India's financial capital, Mumbai.

The Global Dow will track the performance of a diverse basket of stocks, including companies from emerging markets, like India, and emerging industries, like alternative energy.



Wall Street Journal editors will select the components of the Global Dow, as they now do with the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which tracks thirty of the largest public companies in the United States.



"While we must reflect the global stock market as it is, we must also recognize the rapid rise of companies in countries such as India," Robert Thomson, managing editor of The Wall Street Journal said in a statement. "We have already seen great Indian companies acquiring famous brands such as Jaguar and Land Rover, but these developments are just the beginning of a long-term trend that will fundamentally change the international corporate landscape."



The new India blue-chip index, called Dow Jones India Titans, will track the performance of the thirty largest and most liquid stocks listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange and the National Stock Exchange of India. The top five companies in the index by market capitalization are Reliance Industries Ltd., Infosys Technologies Ltd., HDFC Ltd., Bharti Airtel Ltd., and Larsen & Toubro Ltd.



Financials, basic materials and oil and gas are the most prominent sectors in the index.



"We will see huge capital flows both from and to India in coming years and that is an opportunity for us as a financial information company, as well as for international investors who want to take advantage of this profound trend," Murdoch said in a statement.

Your Bill Amounts Are Going To Increase From June 1, 2016

Service tax is a tax levied by the government on service providers on certain service transactions, but is actually borne by the customers. It is categorized under Indirect Tax and came into existence under the Finance Act, 1994. Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, in his budget announcements proposed to impose a cess, called the Krishi Kalyan Cess, @ 0.5% on all taxable services. The present rate of service tax will be hiked to 15 per cent from June 1, 2016, from 14.5 per cent. Take a look at what gets expensive:



Phone Bills: Your phone bills are going to go up. So, pay a good 15 per cent now on service tax on phone bills.

Restaurant Bills :If you are dining in a restaurant that already has service tax applicable, you are going to pay more on your eating out. Though 0.5 per cent on a single bill may not mean much, frequent diners may end-up paying a lot during the year.

Travelling: You will have to pay more for air travel, as there is a service tax on tour operators and travel agents.

Moneycontrol Terminal - Streaming Live Quotes

Moneycontrol has introduced a new feature Moneycontrol Terminal - an enhanced version of real time price updates. Though there were live quotes provided by the website previously, the present form  gives a better update of live quotes of indices and stocks.

This terminal provides live streaming quotes for both NSE and BSE free. It also provides quotes for most of the indices and also the constituents/stocks of the indices in BSE and NSE.  The terminal also provides live news and other market news, which might be useful for traders. The hardware recommended is minimum of 1 GB RAM.

It would be better if stock of any choice could be added ( market watch of a set of stocks ), which would be easier to track one's trading positions. Anyway, this is a better alternative for people who don't have access to any trading software, to view live action of the markets.




You could just try the same here at Moneycontrol Terminal
