Deciphering RBI's Monetary Policy - 30th October 2012


Metcon Finance's Take on the RBI's Monetary Policy Announcement
Tuesday, 30th October, 2012
Mumbai, India

Today the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) cut the CRR by 25 bps to 4.25% and left traders, investors and analysts disappointed with no change in the RBI’s interest rate (Repo Rate) at 8%. While the Equity & Currency markets have not seen this in good light, we at Metcon Finance are analyzing Governor Subbarao’s statement probably more carefully than we ever have.

He mentioned that inflation will continue to be sticky at 7-8% which will be mainly driven by supply-side constraints and high commodity prices. He said that the RBI expects commodity rates to continue to remain high and probably even inch up, which we believe is an indication of a high likelihood of further easing by Japan/ECB/China along with the US FED’s QE3. As the US Presidential elections take place next week, it is only obvious and absolutely necessary that we also understand the RBI’s as well as GoI’s view with respect to the same. After speaking to Wealth managers, Portfolio Managers for Institutions as well as HNI’s, we understand that markets would cheer Governor Mitt Romney’s victory over President Barack Obama as the latter has, as felt by many economists across the United States, failed to revive the American economy and consequently also dented the progress of various nations in strengthening their respective economies.

The signalling by RBI Governor Subbarao that the commodity prices will be sticky also points to strong American Equity markets till the end of 2012, where we expect the S&P 500 to make new highs and consequently Nifty to touch 6100 levels. However after touching the new high, we expect that between January and March we may witness a 6-10% correction in the American Equity markets which may lead to a fall also in the Indian Equity Markets by 7-10%.We expect the Nifty to find support between 5520 and 5750. Subbarao mentioned that we can expect to see some easing in the Monetary policy between January & March, which we believe would be a time where either American & European markets correct or core inflation in India eases to sub 5% levels or both.

On the policies and economic front, we expect the Indian Government to outperform people’s expectations, especially in the Infrastructure, Telecom, SME & Mining segments. The Cabinet reshuffling and appointment of younger and more vibrant leaders points at a training mode of Rahul Gandhi's favourites for 18 months, the duration remaining for the 2014 National General elections. According to a recent poll by CNN-IBN, people would prefer Rahul Gandhi over Manmohan Singh as the Congress' Prime Ministerial candidate, and the reshuffling on Sunday only confirms the similarity in the voters' views and the Congress' Top Masterminds.

Coming to the Indian Rupee, it is again beginning to see some weakness after jumping nearly 10% in 5 weeks. However, we are of the opinion that the US Dollar has strong resistance between 54.30 and 55.50 and the UPA Government's newly found aggression in implementing policies, change in stance of the RBI gradually towards growth, lower Oil prices and change in investor sentiment will help the Rupee become stable at 50-52 levels in the next 2-3 months.

The above views indicate a fairly bullish stance maintained by us in the short-to-medium term, however, we do not rule out the possibility of Nifty falling to 5250, in case our assumptions fall short or in case another speed bump comes up in Europe’s path of recovery.

  2. You don't have to hit the gym for two and three hours each day to lose weight, but it does help to squeeze in 30 minutes of physical activity each day. Withdrawal from levothyroxine can be done but it takes 6 weeks of withdrawal for the remaining thyroid tissue to be completely starved. Who does not need that little bit of elevation when trying to diet.

  4. 0 megapixels, created-in flash, motion picture captured.
    If the horse is a good model and stands well during his photo op, then work it.
    As you will see later other considerations like lenses, flash and battery are no less important.

  5. Both drugs have also been denied FDA approval the first time around and are awaiting news on
    their second attempt. Avocados- Although not my favorite, are high in fats, the good ones.
    Now, the average healthy amount people are supposed to
    lose is 2 pounds per week.

  7. The Nokia N8 provides an exciting alternative to some of the mainstream Smartphones
    which are currently available. It includes the feature of red eye reduction and the various white balancing
    features include Auto, Daylight, Cloudy, Fluorescent H, Fluorescent L,
    Tungsten and Custom. This lets you manage exactly how wide the camera shutter opens and the remaining settings are
    governed automatically to provide you with an excellent picture.

  8. And now we'll be able to help her music selection grow and change right along with her. I think what corporate America has forgotten is that the airwaves are public. Turn on iheartradio and then look at a different app, your station will keep playing and you can control everything from the "running apps" menu (double-click the home button).

  9. This idea would be perfectly done with camping, it allows
    a camper to acquire the utmost relaxation which is the basic objective of the activity.
    Also, bigger animals may flock to the campsites: foxes, badgers and in
    some areas even bears may come uninvited, attracted by the smell of food and leftovers.
    A head light is one of the most essential camping gadgets during night for the convenience, if
    there is no power supply at the site of camping.

  10. Camping first aid kits are different from the first aid kits you may have
    at home, as they will be stocked with supplies to
    treat outdoor injuries, such as snakebite, burns, sprains as
    well as animal and insect bites. Are you going on a lighthouse tour of the Oregon Coast.
    A wet bandanna around the neck not just covers it from the sun, however it also keeps you
    cool.

  11. Too many folks have already thrown away plenty of good money on nothing but useless salt tablets
    being shipped from South America. Avocados- Although not my favorite, are high in fats, the good ones.

    Hence, broccoli is a must-add ingredient in your vegetarian weight loss diet.

    You can always choose a box of her favorite chocolates,

  13. Cooking one-pot meals is the way to go when it comes to cold weather camping, so be sure to pack a cast iron dutch oven before you head out for
    your camping adventure. Also, bigger animals may flock to the campsites: foxes, badgers and in some areas even bears may come uninvited, attracted by
    the smell of food and leftovers. Many of the most pleasant trips we've had were at camp sites that were relatively basic yet in the midst of beautiful countryside.

  14. It was starting to get dark and Jeff has been gone a long time.
    As one might have guessed, Si's little nap turns into an overnight stay at Phil and Kay's.

    Even though most liquid fuel stoves are more powerful and provide great heat output than canister stoves, they are not as
    convenient.

    In fact, I always suggest to those overweight vegetarians to keep to a max of 4 pounds a week so you won't suffer loose skin post weight loss. Now, the average healthy amount people are supposed to lose is 2 pounds per week.

  16. As long as poets continue to write poetry new ones will be created to
    categorize the person's poems. You can always choose a box of her favorite chocolates, for example. So choose the perfect Funny Family Poems to surprise your mother and make it a special memory to always remember.

    be created to categorize the person's poems. These are reaching thousands of people at a time who recognize the self help benefits and pass them on to friends who do the same and they become viral. On the other hand children spend most of their time with their mothers, who love deeply, scold harshly, they worry extremely but in the end they make you what you are.

  19. You have to give a tube radio at least 20 to 30 minutes just to
    warm up and then you decide what frequency you want to be
    on and load the plate and tune them up. Next, build a list
    of prospects and develop a relationship with those prospects on your list.
    So, a custom direct application and route tracking can make it easier to you cut fuel cost, save visit
    time and wholesome delivery.

  20. Much like Safari, the Camera app, the App Store and i
    - Pod, Game Center has no option to be deleted when editing your apps.

    The only downside of it in a lot of people's eyes is the fact that there is no multiplayer content. Are you a Kansas City Chiefs or Pittsburgh Steelers fan.

  23. Major follows some sports, primarily during the playoffs.
    Caution: when a hole is made in a can, there may be metallic edges that can cut one's mouth. The nature of Reddit's platform makes
    it possible -- through great and creative effort, it appears -- to give users a gift of
    the unexpected, rather than deriving humor from humiliation.
