The government yesterday lowered the price of natural gas by 7.72% to $4.66 per mmBtu with effect from 1 April in a move that will benefit consumers, but dent the revenues of domestic gas producers such as state-owned Oil and Natural Gas Corp. Ltd (ONGC) and Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL).
The government has finally achieved the 4.1% deficit target for FY15, despite a shortage of around 45,000 cr. Some much need spectrum auction proceeds of around 8,000 cr – 9,000 cr has come to the rescue of the finance ministry. However, tight curbs on expenditure, including maintaining the 15% cap on March expenditure, and remaining within the 33% expenditure limit for Jan-March, has helped the govt meet the FD target.

In yesterday’s report we had advised going long above 8510, keeping a stop loss of 8460, for target of 8600. The benchmark, after touching a high of 8550, saw a sudden fall to 8454 and finally settled at 8491.
34-hour average, which was at 8460 on Monday, has moved lower to 8450 yesterday and one can keep that as a stop loss for trading longs. However, fresh longs should be initiated only above 8550, as that is where the trendline resistance adjoining recent tops on the daily chart is placed. A crossover of 8550 can take the benchmark to around 8710, where the 34-DMA is placed.
Auto companies will report their March sales figures today.

Indian markets will remain shut tomorrow and day after for Mahavir Jayanti and Good Friday respectively.
