MSE strikes the ‘gong’ in new avatar

“To improve is to change; to be perfect is to have changed often,” goes the old saying that holds true for the Madras Stock Exchange (MSE) — India’s fourth oldest bourse, and South India’s first.

A shift from the earlier outcry system to online trading, thanks to the advent of technology, and the consequent emergence of the National Stock Exchange (NSE) as a primary stock market platform sounded the death knell for regional stock exchanges, and MSE was no exception.

Many regional exchanges realised the obsolescence of their existing business models and embraced broking and depository businesses to stay relevant. In 2001, MSE followed suit, launching a subsidiary, MSE Financial Services Ltd (MSEFSL). READ MORE ABOUT THIS HERE

Brokers urge SEBI to review new margin rules for equity segment

 

A large number of retail clients and brokers are yet to gear up for SEBI’s new margin norms that came into effect from January 1, with regard to the cash segment. A representation made by brokers to SEBI has highlighted several practical problems in immediately adjusting to SEBI’s circular.

According to a recent circular, even selling of shares would require clients to deposit prior margin with the broker, which was not the case so far. The regulator changed a 14-year-old practice of buying and selling of shares for a large number of retail players in India’s market. The circular was issued by SEBI on November 20, 2019.

Brokers are calling up their clients and asking them to shift their demat accounts to the brokerage or be ready to deposit initial margin money to avail any kind of buying or selling limit. If a client has a demat and trading account with the same broker, margin for selling of the shares may not be required.

Data from depositories NSDL and CDSL show there are nearly four crore demat accounts. A large number of these investors kept their demat and trading accounts with separate entities for safety purpose. Read more about it here

Daily Rupee call: Go short at 71.45 with stop loss at 71.3

File photo   -  Getty Images/iStockphoto

 

The rupee (INR) ended the day lower on Thursday at 71.37 versus its previous close of 71.22 against the dollar (USD). However, the forward spread of USDINR remains at previous day’s level i.e. 304 points. Thus, the exchange rate yesterday closed within the range between 71.2 and 71.4.

However, in today’s session the rupee has opened much lower at 71.61, breaking below the range. This opens the door for further depreciation. Currently trading at 71.55, the immediate support is at 71.6, below which the support is at 71.88. But if it strengthens from current levels, it will face hindrance at 71.4. Resistance above that level is at 71.2.  FOR MORE ON THE RUPEE CALL CLICK HERE

Trade strategy:

As the Indian currency has broken below the range, it can be approached with a bearish bias. But from a trading perspective, the risk-reward ratio is not favourable for short positions at current levels. Thus, traders are recommended to initiate rupee shorts if it rallies to 71.45 and place stop loss at 71.3.

Supports: 71.6 and 71.88

Resistances: 71.4 and 71.2
