Monthly Gainers & Losers and Weekly Outlook

Nifty closed the month of January 2009 down 3% at 2874, but there was full of action throughout the month.The top gainers for the month were Infosys (15%), M&M (12%), Maruti and Herohonda (10% each) and among the top losers include Siemens,Rcom and PNB (24% each).

Now looking ahead, most of the quarterly results have come out and going forward there is lack of any fresh trigger on the local news front. A close look at the Nifty chart would give an insight of current market behavior.The nifty is trading in a range of few hundred points of 2650/2800 on the lower side to 3000/3150 on the upper side.

The formation in Nifty is similar to an ascending triangle due to the two peaks formed at 3160. The up trend from 2661 can take the index higher to 2900 or 2986. In short, the area between 2900 and 3000 is a strong resistance zone. If this zone is crossed, the index can head towards 3150.

But the medium-term view for Nifty would turn positive only on a weekly close above 3150. Conversely, the area around 2500/2650 will continue to act as a good medium term support.

Break of this range would give a decisive direction to the markets. Till then one can buy around the lower range and sell on rise to the upper range.Any big negatives could come only from global cues, which could impact our markets.

Meanwhile Gold is hitting new highs closing at Rs.1450 per gram. A 5 to 10% exposure can be made on declines.

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.
