Nifty moved in a very narrow range over the last 8 trading sessions suggesting a “Big move “ in the offing as contraction in volatility leads to expansion. Nifty closed with minor gain amid lackluster movement on the last trading day of the calendar year. However, Nifty, in short term bullishness, would become weak only on a close below 6270 mark.  Nifty spot is expected to encounter resistance at 6345, 6380 and find support at 6265, 6230, for Wednesday. While Global cues and  Funds flow  are expected to broadly guide the market movement, based on the present market position , market can be expected to display dual / zigzag movements with alternate bouts of bullishness and bearishness.

In 2012, the Sensex had jumped nearly 26 per cent. After a better start today, the 30-share closed higher by 27.67 points, or 0.13 per cent, at 21,170.68 led by stocks of power, refinery and healthcare sectors. RIL, TCS and L&T helped lift Sensex.

Leading businessman Anil Ambani today said more than creating wealth for himself, his father late Dhirubhai Ambani derived greater happiness from creating wealth for masses. "If you ever asked what part of being an entrepreneur he (late Ambani) enjoyed the most, he would say, 'I enjoy creating wealth. But what I enjoy even more is in creating wealth for the people of the country,'" the Anil Ambani Group chairman said while addressing an industry event here. It can be noted that the late Ambani, who had a humble beginning as a primary school teacher's son in Gujarat, is regarded as the father of capital markets and the equity cult, who made millions of investors millionaires with the IPO of Reliance Textile Industries in 1977.

Stating that the launch of Kothari Pioneer Mutual Fund, which was country's first private MF in 1993, was his (Dhirubhai's) id…

The sharp plunge left investors poorer by over Rs 95,000 crore as the market cap stood at Rs 1,27,08,846 crore. Risk appetite took a hit after the Economic Survey said achieving the high end of the 6.75-7.5 per cent growth projected previously will be difficult. This is markets' first weekly fall in six.
Weakness in the rupee against the American currency and lacklustre global shares dragged down the indices, too. The BSE 30-share Sensex remained in the negative zone and settled down 317.74 points, or 1.01 per cent, at 31,213.59, its weakest closing since July 4. The index had tumbled 794.08 points in the last four sessions. The NSE Nifty after cracking the 9,700-mark to hit a low of 9,685.55, finally settled lower 109.45 points, or 1.11 per cent…
