the New Year. Though volume-wise it wasn't a great day, price-wise the Mid-cap and Small-cap stocks celebrated the first trading day of the year. The rally was mainly supported by interest rate sensitive sectors like banking and real estate, which

remained on buyers' radar on optimism of Reserve Bank of India (RBI) easing monetary policy this month.
December series futures and options expiry turned out to be an extremely disappointing affair for the Indian stock markets as the benchmarks capitulated to the unrelenting selling pressure amid extremely high volatility. The hefty sell-off witnessed in last leg of trade dragged the key indices below the psychological 5,900 (Nifty) and 19,350 (Sensex) levels. Investors resorted to ruthless position squaring from the Oil & Gas, Software, metal and technology counters in the last half an hour, ahead of the F&O series expiry. The final day of the 2012's last F&O series saw Indian benchmark indices collapsing by over a half a percent as investors rolled over their portfolios for the fresh January series coupled with looming uncertainty over a US fiscal-cliff resolution. On the F&O front, Nifty and Sensex, for December series, registered gains of 0.7% each, as against 2.10% profit in November series. From the expiry perspective, market wide

rollover of 61.42% was observed, which was higher than the three month average of 61.03% while Nifty rollovers were at 56.94%, higher than three month average of 53.14%. Sectorally, Telecom, cement and capital goods space witnessed high rollover of positions while infrastructure, technology and automobile stocks observed relatively low rolls into the December series.

Nevertheless Playing catch-up with the overnight gains at Wall Street, Indian equity markets, after starting the New Year '2013' on a promising note, rallied close to 20 months high to end comfortably past psychological 19500 (Sensex) and 5900 (Nifty)levels. US economy back from the edge of a 'fiscal cliff' on Tuesday, voting to avoid imminent tax hikes and spending cuts in a bipartisan deal that could still face stiff challenges in the House of Representatives. In a rare New Year's session, senators voted 89-8 to raise some taxes on the wealthy while making permanent low tax rates on the middle class that have been in place for a decade. Conclusively we believe spot index may continue its overwhelming performance in the upcoming month however 6010-6030 could be near term resistance levels. Any successful closing above this range may further boost the sentiments and we might see 6130-6160 level in a short span of time. On the flip side 5800 support with 5650 could be the crucial support zone. HAPPY TRADING AND HAVE A VERY PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR 2013…

Term "fiscal cliff” has been coined to describe a combination of tax increases and spending cuts due to come into effect at midnight on December 31, when the terms of the Budget Control Act of 2011 are due to go into effect. In 2001, under President George Bush, a raft of "temporary" tax cuts were enacted and are now set to expire on December 31. At the same time a raft of spending cuts are due to take effect. President Barack Obama, his fellow Democrats and Republicans in Congress agreed at the end of 2010 to extend these rates for two years, but the deadline is now looming. Some $607bn (£376.5bn) of cuts and tax rises will occur, including reductions in the defence budget, the end of an employee tax holiday - which would result in a 2pc increase for workers, changes to Medicare allowances and higher personal taxes. If Congress and Obama do nothing by the deadline of December 31, taxes will rise for most Americans. Rates will go up to 15, 28, 31, 36 and 39.6pc from the present 10, 15, 25, 28, 33 and 35pc. Mr Obama and the Democrats want to prevent this by extending the Bush tax rates again, but only for income below $200,000 per individual, or $250,000 per family. For income above that level, they seek a return to the higher, pre-Bush tax rates.


Mr Obama and lawmakers are working to prevent around $600 billion in combined federal spending cuts and tax increases, a shock economists say could stop the economic recovery in its tracks and perhaps reverberate beyond U.S. shores. The president, who won re-election on a platform that included a pledge to raise taxes on top earners, said Senate leaders were working right now to craft a bipartisan measure that could win approval in both houses of Congress. If the fiscal policies currently in place are continued in coming years, the revenues collected by the federal government will fall far short of federal spending. That gap will grow over time as the aging of the population and the rising cost of health care continue to boost federal spending under current policies. Therefore, putting the budget on a sustainable path will require significant changes in spending policies, tax policies, or both. Policymakers face difficult trade-offs in deciding how quickly to implement policies to reduce budget deficits. On the one hand, cutting spending or increasing taxes slowly would lead to a greater accumulation of government debt and might raise doubts about whether longer-term deficit reduction would ultimately take effect. On the other hand, implementing spending cuts or tax increases abruptly would give families, businesses, and state and local governments little time to plan and adjust.

What would happen if lawmakers changed fiscal policy in late 2012 to remove or offset all of the policies that are scheduled to reduce the federal budget deficit by 5.1 percent of GDP between calendar years 2012 and 2013? In that case, the growth of real GDP in calendar year 2013 would lie in a broad range around 4.4 percent, well above the 0.5 percent projected for 2013 under current law. However, eliminating or reducing the fiscal restraint scheduled to occur next year without imposing comparable restraint in future years would reduce output and income in the longer run relative to what would occur if the scheduled fiscal restraint remained in place. If all current policies were extended for a prolonged period, federal debt held by the publiccurrently about 70 percent of GDP, its highest mark since 1950would continue to rise much faster than GDP. Such a path for federal debt could not be sustained indefinitely, and policy changes would be required at some point. In shorter run, policymakers wanted to minimize the short-run costs of narrowing the deficit very quickly while also minimizing the longer-run costs of allowing large deficits to persist.

During the same period in the previous fiscal year, the deficit was 85.6% of the budget target. Net tax receipts for April-November stood at Rs 3.7 trillion while total expenditure was about Rs 8.7 trillion. Earlier in March, the government had budgeted a fiscal deficit of Rs 5.14 trillion, or 5.1% of the GDP, for the fiscal year ending March 2013. However, in October, it was revised to 5.3%, mainly on the back of subdued revenue collection and rising fuel and food subsidy bills. However Following positive local equity markets, Indian rupee appreciated against dollar on the first day of trading in the New Year amid dollar selling by exporters and some banks. Investor's sentiments were boosted after White House and congressional lawmakers have reached a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff, which will delay harsh spending cuts by two months. However, domestic currency's gains were capped by the country's widening current account deficit, which stood at 5.4% of GDP in the September quarter as export growth slowed more sharply than imports.

Fundamental analysis is the groundwork of investing. In fact, some would say that you aren't really investing if you aren't performing fundamental analysis. Because the subject is so broad, however, it's tough to know where to start. There are an endless number of investment strategies that are very different from each other, yet almost all use the fundamentals. The biggest part of fundamental analysis involves delving into the financial statements. Also known as quantitative analysis, this involves looking at revenue, expenses, assets, liabilities and all the other financial aspects of a company. Fundamental analysts look at this information to gain insight on a company's future performance.

Why use Fundamental Analysis?
When talking about stocks, fundamental analysis is a technique that attempts to determine a security's value by focusing on underlying factors that affect a company's actual business and its future prospects. On a broader scope, you can perform fundamental analysis on industries or the economy as a whole. The term simply refers to the analysis of the economic well-being of a financial entity as opposed to only its price movements. Fundamental analysis serves to answer questions, such as, is the company's revenue growing? Is it actually making a profit? Is it in a strong-enough position to beat out its competitors in the future? Is it able to repay its debts? Of course, these are very involved questions, and there are literally hundreds of others you might have about a company. It all really boils down to one question: Is the company's stock a good investment? Think of fundamental analysis as a toolbox to help you answer this question.

Quantitative and Qualitative Fundamentals
As we mentioned in the introduction, the big problem with defining fundamentals is that it can include anything related to the economic well-being of a company. Obvious items include things like revenue and profit, but fundamentals also include everything from a company's market share to the quality of its management. The various fundamental factors can be grouped into two categories: quantitative and qualitative. Quantitative fundamentals are numeric, measurable characteristics about a business. You can measure revenue, profit, assets and more with great precision. While a qualitative fundamentals refers to, the less tangible factors surrounding a business, things such as the quality of a company's board members and key executives, its brand-name recognition, patents or proprietary technology etc.


The Concept of Intrinsic Value
One of the primary assumptions of fundamental analysis is that the price on the stock market does not fully reflect a stock's “real” value. After all, why would you be doing price analysis if the stock market were always correct? In financial language, this true value is known as the intrinsic value. For example, let's say that a company's stock was trading at Rs 200 and you determine the intrinsic value that of the firm is worth Rs 250. This is clearly relevant because an investor wants to buy stocks that are trading at prices significantly below their estimated intrinsic value. This leads us to one of the second major assumptions of fundamental analysis: in the long run, the stock market will reflect the fundamentals. There is no point in buying a stock based on intrinsic value if the price never reflected that value.

Summing Up: Whenever you are thinking of investing in a company, it is very important that you understand what it does, its market and the industry in which it operates. You should never blindly invest in a company. One of the most important areas for any investor to look at when researching a company is the financial statements. It is essential to understand the purpose of each part of these statements and how to interpret them. The goal of this tutorial is to provide a foundation for understanding fundamental analysis. While you may not be a "stock-picker extraordinaire" but I very sure that after reading this tutorial, you will have a much more solid grasp of the language and concepts behind security analysis and be able to use this to further your knowledge in other areas without feeling totally lost.


Gold and Silver prices are up by more than 5% and 8% respectively in 2012, as central banks from the U.S. to China and Europe took appropriate measures to crutch up economies and expanded Gold Reserves. Gold Prices continued increases this year on low interest rates, concerns over the financial stability of the Eurozone and diversification into bullion by central banks. But from the last week Silver Prices dropped by almost 7% the worst week since December 2011. Gold Prices fell 2.3% last week as U.S.budget talks stalled, the biggest loss since the period ended June 22. For 2013, one thing is quite sure that there would be a complete breakdown in value for paper currencies which may trigger sharp upsides in Gold and Silver for sometime. But overall 2013 will be a year of a lot of pain. Gold and Silver seem to have bottomed out for now but accessing an upside would be really difficult with thin volumes around the world due to Christmas & also the year end when most big traders & hedge funds prefer to remain on cash.

Morgan Stanley for instance, lists gold, silver, corn and soybeans as its preferred commodities for 2013. It expects gold to average $1,853 an ounce next year and for silver to average $35. For its part, Bank of America sees gold, copper, silver, platinum and palladium outperforming other commodities in the year ahead as global economic grow averages 3.2%. UBS said earlier in December that its gold forecast is $1,900 an ounce in 2013, while its silver outlook is pegged at $36.80. Its platinum forecast is $1,740, and its palladium outlook is at $780.

monthly report

According to our expectation large-scale policy easing by the Fed and the ECB should push gold prices higher but upside in gold could be capped near to $ 1900 and in Silver around $ 42.50 in the first half of 2013. However a stronger Chinese economy will likely lend support to supply constrained metals next year, and we expect copper prices to outshine others in the first half of 2013.

CRUDE OIL: MCX crude oil is the worst performer in energy complex this year which fell more than 5.50% compared to last year. In 2011, MCX Crude prices settled higher at Rs.5296 and this year prices are trading at Rs.5000 levels. In 2012, MCX Crude prices have made a high of Rs.5635; the prices were unable to sustain at higher levels thereafter and made a low of Rs.4448. According to EIA expects that the Brent crude oil spot price will average $110 per barrel in the fourth quarter of 2012. This forecast rests on the assumption that U.S. real gross domestic product (GDP) grows by 2.1 percent in 2012 and 1.8 percent in 2013.
