New system for inflation rates in India

No, the government is not moving towards implementing CPI based inflation calculation, but from October onwards, instead of releasing weekly inflation figures, the full data on wholesale price index will be released only on a monthly basis.

As per the decision taken by the government, the weekly index figures will not be released for manufactured products, but will be limited to primary articles and fuels. Manufactured products have a weightage of 63.74851%, while primary articles and fuel have weightages 22.02525% and 14.22624% respectively in inflation calculation.

The government says that the practice of releasing weekly inflation rates is scrapped to curb "volatility" in the markets. But, is it a gradual shift towards adopting CPI, where CPI figures are generally released on a monthly basis?

Stock market is on the verge of fall now. If Nifty holds above 4750-4820 for 2-3 closes then we can see bounce back in the market till 5000-5100-5150 within short time.

Indian stock market is falling and is expected to show some recovery soon. Investors should try to grab value stocks from lower levels for good gains.

Few stocks that can be considered are :-

1. Birlacot
2. Sesagoa
3. Uflex
4. Binani Cement
5. Salzer Electronics


So grab good stocks and invest that’s the bottom line.

We hope to see you in major profits.

Seems like it’s a nice blog. So let us also add something useful in it. Trading in volatile market can be very fruitful also if we follow technical levels closely. It’s a common saying that stock market can change fortune in either way. But now the question is how to earn money from the Indian Stock Market.

Traders are advised to strictly follow technical analyses and investors can follow fundamental analysis. Many analysts say it’s not wise to follow technical and fundamental analysis together. But we say what the problem is if one does so? As more knowledge will add up things will not have any negative impact.
