15% short term capital tax and Sensex nosedives !

We find that Transit Jupiter in the 6th in India's national horoscope is creating havoc !

Short term capital tax at 15%, 60000 cr farmer's loans written off ( this can only increase the 156 billion dollar debt ) and here we are -- the Sensex down by 400 odd points !

The budget, as expected, was populist. Understandably, as elections are round the corner.

Let us congratulate the FM. He had done a wonderful job of populising ! Most of the sectors are down.

It will need a Herculean effort, if India has to become the 3rd power by 2020, as per Goldman Sachs estimates !

6th Jupiter strikes & India decelerates !

Indian economy is slowing down ! GDP growth rate comes down to 8.7 percent!

Agri 2.6
Mining 3.4
Electricity 7.4
Manufacturing 9.4
Construction 9.6
Industry, Hotel 12.4
Financing, Real
Estate 8.7
Services 7.0

So it is not a bed of roses. Agri and mining sectors have to be improved considerably. Also power generation and manufacturing, if India has to come to the third place by 2020 ( as per Goldman Sachs recent GDP projections ).

Why outsourcing to India?

By: Krish Inc, 2008-02-27

India's human resources

Being the world's second highly populated country, human resources are a boon by itself. Just as the Gulf is renowned for its natural resource of crude oil, and South Africa for its diamonds, India is proud of the abundance and easy availability of its highly qualified and technically skilled English speaking computer professionals; who are key to success in the field of IT outsourcing to India.

Cost efficiency of IT outsourcing in India
Significant cost saving can be achieved by IT outsourcing to India, owing to the wide gap between the personal costs in India and that of the developed countries. Offshore outsourcing to India offers considerable economical benefits for those who are prepared to exploit the advantages of outsourcing.

The reliable communication facilities
Excellent telecom, ISP, and cellular networks are available in all cities & towns in the country. India prides in the reliable satellite and submarine communication links that facilitate good band connectivity with the rest of the world. Thus companies engaged in IT outsourcing to India, can be in touch with the vendors without any connection hurdles. This plays a significant role in determining the success of offshore IT outsourcing to India.

Outsourcing gives you :
Better remuneration
Faster development and start up
Lower cost
Enhanced performance
A better-managed e-business infrastructure
Maximizes uptime
A more effective operating environment at the backend

India has a stable government and is one of the world's 10 fastest-growing economies
Fifty years of democracy: Indian service sector contributes a massive 51 per cent to India's GDP. Within this category, the most promising is computer software export, which grew at an amazing rate of 40-50 per cent every year during the 1990s.

Excellent investment potential: India ranked third in Asia, just after Japan and China, in terms of investment potential for the next 10-year period in a study by the Export-Import bank of Japan.

Privatization of the infrastructure sector: A convergent network is being created by the intertwining of the ISP, Telecom, VSAT, Cellular and networking sectors. India's large business houses and Public Sector Units are working towards creating greater bandwidth availability.

How To Lessen Your Trading Risks In Penny Stock Investing

- By: Anthony Galz, 2008-02-27

The worst thing that could happen in this business is when you go broke. Nobody ever wants that to happen and so do you. If you run out of your investment funds, the stocks and shares just keep moving on and never stop. Of course you won't be able to operate anymore because you have no money to spare. That couldn't be difficult to understand, right? So that this horrible vision of bankruptcy will not happen, it is important that you set your limitations in penny stock investing.

It cannot be any clearer than that. No matter how cheap the stocks are, it is important to keep your reservoir full as well. The stock market trend is not predictable. You share can sell high today and you could lose it tomorrow. What if that loss was the last investment money you have? Sad story but this can happen to anyone who is not setting clear goals for themselves. This article talks about some random guidelines on how to keep your savings intact.

- Don't go beyond your budget. This is common sense. You can't spend any more than what you only have. But what this means exactly is that if you are into penny stock investing, don't pour in all your savings. Set aside a budget for your investment to bank roll. A reasonable margin would be not more than ten percent of your personal funds. Any profit made, you can always add it to your savings. But don't go above the 10% mark unless you can really afford it.

- Know the loops in penny stock investing. In this same way as setting up a business, you have to understand the dynamics and the operations. This will lead you to better understanding of the trade. With it, you can make decisions with better precision, not accurate but better.

- Acquaint yourself of the possible risks. Known to everyone in the trade, penny stock trading ranks the highest in risk scale. The stocks lack liquidity. Fraudulent exercises are very possible in this arena. You could lose your money like bubbles bursting in air. But good investors are natural risk takers. They understand it like it's at the back of their hands. With this mindset, you can set your investment funds better.

- Know when you need to say no and when you need to say yes. Don't get carried away if you stock price goes up. It can go down just as fast. So it is important to learn some timing strategies in penny stock investing. This should save you from losing more money and keep your savings steady.

- Do not think of your investment as gambling. If you lose the bet, you can't have it back. So you bet another. Although stock market trading behaves somewhat similar, it's not exactly the same. Investment aims for profit. When you get your share, you bank roll it for more profit. And you're not the only one benefiting it. Gambling is just for entertainment. Penny stock investing is for serious money makers.

Of course, the list on tips can go on and on. But no matter how sensible and persuasive these tips are, it's really up to you. It's your penny stock investing money. You have full authority over it. Small cap trading can make you smile a lot if you stop betting your money and start thinking of it as investment.

Not only America, but the whole world is going through a severe Economic Crisis. The subprime crisis had taken its toll. Citi group wrote off 8 billion dollars as losses. Many banks are in trouble.

The Fed cut rates by 75 basic points. The US is facing Recession. There are some American scholars who fear a Depression !

Asian indices are down as a result. All markets are interconnected. ( We had in our New Age Wisdom blog highlighted Bell's interconnectedness theorem ).

In other words, not only the US, but the whole world is facing an enormous economic crisis.

2008 will not be a good year for Global Economics. Let us hope, that after Jupiter leaves Sagittarius, things will progressively improve.

General Trend Of The Stock Market

- By: Anthony Green, 2008-02-07

A man has to buy and sell to make a profit, that is, he has to get in right and get out right. Then he must watch for the proper time to start his trade and the proper time to close it. Getting in right does not help if you fail to get out right.

The time to act either when buying or selling must be determined by the condition of the market at the time and by the position of the individual stocks that you intend to trade in. You might be able to buy and make profits in some stocks after a bull campaign has about finished, while others you might be able to sell short and make profits after the major swing of a bear market has finished.

Do not buy a stock of one group just because some stock in another group goes up. Neither sell a stock of the same group because some one of that group has already started down. Analyze the position of the stock you intend to trade in. Find out if it has passed out of the accumulation or distribution zone. Stop to think before you act; look before you leap; examine before you buy and remember that it is always better to be safe than sorry. It is much better to take a small loss quickly than to hold on and hope and take a big one later.

Position Of Groups Of Stocks

It is very important to watch the position of the different groups of stocks. To be a success you must keep up with the times and follow the leaders.

General Trend Of The Market

There is always a certain group of stocks, which will follow the general trend up or down, while others for a long time will work opposite to the general trend. Therefore, it is necessary to make a close study of the individual stocks and determine their trend regardless of the trend of the general market. Always sell the weak stocks and buy the strong ones, which is really following the trend of each individual stock. By watching closely the daily high and low, weekly and monthly charts, you will be able to determine when each individual stock has changed its position from strong to weak.

How To Tell The Stocks In Strongest Postition

If you are waiting for an indication to buy stocks, you want to select the strongest stock in a certain group, as the stock which is in the strongest position is naturally the one that will lead in a Bull market and the one in weakest position will lead in a Bear market.

Truth Of Stock Market

You follow this same rule in any group of stocks in order to locate the strongest or weakest individual stock of the group. When you have the record of a stock for a long number of years back and see where it gets its support in extreme panic years and where it meets with resistance in boom years, you can easily tell the levels where it is safe to buy or sell with a risk limited to two or three points.

How To Tell Whwn Stocks Are In Weak Position

You always want to know the stocks that are in the weakest position, because they are the safest to sell short in a Bear market. The ones that show weakness first naturally will be leaders in a Bear market. After the trend turns down from the top and stocks have declined for quite awhile, the next thing which will show that a bigger decline will take place is the breaking of important support points.

Judging Final Tops And Bottoms

Before any stock, or group of stocks, starts on a big advance or decline, a long period of time is required for preparation, or accumulation or distribution. It requires time to prepare and lay the foundation for a building. The larger the building, the more time required to construct the foundation. It is the same with stocks. The greater the advance or the decline, the more time required in preparing for it.

Progressive Tops And Bottoms

It always pays to keep a chart of Averages of any group of stocks, as you can then judge when they have reached a level where they are receiving support or being distributed. But, of course, you cannot trade in Averages; therefore, must keep a chart of some of the individual issues of each group in order to determine the best ones to trade in and the right time to buy or sell.

On active stocks 5 to 10 point moves will help to show when tops or bottoms are being made. On stocks selling 25 to 60 per share 3-point charts will show best, but on stocks selling 100 to 300 per share 5 and 10 point moves are much better because it requires a wider range in which to buy or sell a large amount of stock. Sometimes stocks require several years to lay a foundation for a big Bull or Bear campaign.

Worst January in Stock Market History

By: Robert Thomson, 2008-02-03

This month marks one of the worst Januarys in the history of the stock market. With the housing bubble bursting and the dollar fading the future for US investors doesn’t exactly look promising. It seems like anything our friends at the all mighty Federal Reserve try to do misses the mark every time. Is it time to shake things up in Mr. Bernanke’s fleet of Harvard economic geniuses, or does congress need a slap in the face and a lesson in long run economics? If you share my opinion we need a large helping of both and if we don’t, a portfolio fortification is critical.

In the likely occasion of a recession in the near future few investors cannot afford to ride this terrifying roller coaster out. A major revamp of your portfolio needs to be on the top of your financial to-do list. First off most advisors are suggesting less equities and more debt investing. We all know what that means; get out the less glamorous yet notably more secure bond list. Here were going to do something a little different then what the typical investor would think of doing. Instead of investing in the usual 10 year T-bill, we are going to go the other direction. Moving about 15% of our portfolio into more profitable corporate bonds can add the necessary security needed, with about a 2-2.5% larger ROI compared to your average treasury bond. This accounts for anywhere between 10-25% of your portfolio the next step is figuring out what to do with the rest.

With a recession impending on the horizon one awful truth is imminent. Company earnings will start to contract and with earning contraction comes employment contraction. With this alarming truth comes the necessity to start preparing for an extended period of time without an income source just in case. If you feel like there is even the most remote chance of termination you will need some cash put aside that is readily accessible in times of distress. The general norm is to have at least six months worth of living expenses set aside in an extremely liquid account. Let’s say that at the very most 10% of your portfolio should be some form of cash or any other easily accessible investment depending upon your net worth. With the safest investments out of the way lets move on to more profitable/secure investments.

We’re going to steer away from owning to many individual stocks in this volatile market so the next areas we will look into are mutual funds and ETF’s. Investing in foreign companies seems to be the most logical way to go when the US is teetering on the brink of a recession. Finding mutual funds that invest heavily in companies in China and other emerging markets have the most promise right now. ETF’s, emerging market funds, also offer a very nice blanket of diversity. ETF’s focus investments on an entire market sector such as energy, technology, agriculture and so on. Investing anywhere from 20-30% of your portfolio in these particular vehicles will provide you with optimal security and diversity.

Recently looking more and more attractive, are what some people deem “Sin Funds/Vice Funds”. These investments focus on stocks that do particularly well historically in times of ill market conditions. Unlike most stocks during a down turn in the market, sin stocks or vice stocks, earning actually increase. It’s really a phenomenon most investors ignore. Vice funds offer a very unique intangible asset that is impossible to duplicate in times considerably rough markets. Focusing most of there investments on companies people tend to use more of when stressed and pinched for money, such as tobacco and alcohol, makes sin funds a very safe investment. Committing up to 25% of your portfolio to a reputable sin fund could have you bragging to your friends while they are crying about how much money they’ve lost in recent weeks. As you can see individual stocks aren’t exactly the safest investments for this market, but there are some stocks that are considered as relatively safe.

If you must invest in individual stocks please take our advice and go big. Large cap stocks seem like the only way to go right now, offering little relative risk. Companies like Coca-Cola and Microsoft are looking decent right now, but don’t risk too much money on individual stock picks they’re probably not worth it in the end.

Hopefully we have provided at least a slightly enlightening way of invest your money securely in the uncertain near future. Remember with every problem comes an opportunity so keep your eyes open for companies severely undervalued. Value investing for the long term right now is your safest bet when it comes to stocks so steer clear of most growth stocks unless you know something I don’t!

Secure your portfolio and see how Sin Funds are becoming the investment choice of top Wall Street analysts and investors. Don’t take a beating from the current stock market when you can capitalize on its negative trends.
