Sameet Chavan, Technical Analyst at Angel Broking:
“For the third straight session, our markets opened with an upside gap owing to favorable cues from the global bourses. In the initial trade, Nifty reclaimed the 11300 mark which was broken severely last week. However, unlike the last couple of sessions, the bulls looked a bit tentative at higher levels, which resulted in a healthy intraday correction around the mid session. This was followed by almost complete recovery in the penultimate hour, which again got sold into to conclude the day on a flat note.
After two days of spectacular recovery, the market took a breather yesterday; however, the volatility was slightly on the higher side. Technically there is a reason for this tentativeness around the 11,300 mark.The previous breakdown point of the ‘Triangle’ is placed around it and importantly, the 61.8% retracement of the recent fall from 11,618.10 to 10,790.20 precisely coincides around the same mark. Hence, we continue to consider 11,250-11,350 as a sturdy wall for a time being. For the coming session, we are likely to see further weakness once Nifty sustains below 11,180 to retest 11,100 – 11,000 levels. Hence, it’s better to stay light and avoid getting carried away by such intermediate recoveries.
On the sectoral front, the IT showed some strength yesterday along with Metal counters and mighty RELIANCE. They helped NIfty defend its key support yesterday; whereas the dragger banking space provided selling pressure at higher levels. Although, individual themes are playing out well but we still advocate refraining from creating aggressive bets (overnight).”

When nothing else glitters, it is all gold
The uncertainty, it is said, is the only certainty in life. You can add one more to the list: a rise in prices of gold when the economic outlook loses glitter. Gold prices have steadily risen since the second half of 2018, breaking all previous records, on the back of sputtering economic activity. But the virtual decimation of global economy due to the COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented. And quite predictably, by August this year, gold prices zoomed to a whopping $2070/oz before cooling off a bit.
This article attempts to uncover the reasons for this sharp rise in the prices of the yellow metal. But before I go there, let us rewind to the period between 2008-2011. Read more

The company has decided to raise Rs 120 crore via preferential issue, and on September 29, finalised the allotment of equity shares on a preferential basis.

US Market: Stock futures turn negative amid virus treatment news, US presidential election
U.S. stock futures traded flat on Tuesday night as traders digested positive data regarding a potential coronavirus treatment from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals as well as the first U.S. presidential debate.
Dow Jones Industrial Average futures were down 7 points, or 0.03 percent, after jumping more than 150 points earlier. S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures were also little changed.
Futures rose slightly during the debate, but quickly gave up most of that ground once the debate was over. It wasn’t clear whether the gyrations were related to the contentious comments being traded back and forth by the candidates. Traders are hoping that the start of the debate process will lead to a clear winner on Election Day and not a drawn-out electoral process that could hit the market. (Source: CNBC International)
