Markets shouldn’t fear AAP win: Modi will not buckle under just one defeat

Are the markets cheap even at 8,300? That should be the question that should worry the markets more than the impact of AAP on the budget.

Correcting CAD: Let rupee fall and stop doling out sops for foreigners

A slower depreciation of the rupee is better way to strengthen the country's exports, lower competitive imports and give a boost to Indian industry all round. The enforced appreciation of the rupee cuts this boost to industry. #CAD #FCNR #FII #Foreign Currency Non Resident. #Indian rupee

If govt doesn’t do its bit, Rajan’s attack on inflation will hurt

The decision to track CPI can mean a much more hawkish RBI that we are prepared for. Not only is headline CPI at 9.5%, non-food CPI has been sticky at 8.7%. So even assuming food inflation drops rapidly in the last quarter of 2013, headline CPI may remain well above 8%. In which case RBI may go for 2 more rate hikes.
