Outlook for Thursday:-

The sub-prime crisis is looming large on the world and it is taking toll on global markets almost everyday now. India is not insulated from global peers and we will be affected with the fall in US markets. Also Left party statement about mid-term elections will make market players somewhat nervous about the political scenario. Our markets are expected to remain under pressure and test lower levels. The fall can be more than 10% on the indices in near term.

It is only the outlook of the market with reference to its previous performance. You are advised to take your position with your sense and judgment. I am trying to consider the fundamental validity of stocks as far as possible, but demand and supply affects it with vision variations.
