GLOBAL ECONOMIC CONCERNS CONTINUE TO WEIGH ON EQUITIES; NEGATIVE BIAS CONTINUES ON NIFTY
WORLD MARKETS
Dow and S & P 500 fell 0.6% each and Nasdaq tumble 1% yesterday as relentless fall in oil stoked concern over the global economy.
The fresh declines came as OPEC said it would not cut oil output despite fears of a glut, and a UAE official opposed holding an emergency meeting of the producer group to fix prices. Nymex oil dropped 3.3% to $55.91 a barrel, its lowest closing level since May 2009. Brent fell 65 cents to $61.20.
Economic data was mixed. US industrial production rose 1.3% in November vs expectation of a 0.6% rise. Home builder sentiment fell a point in December after a large jump last month. New York state manufacturing activity shrank in December.
European markets fell between 2%-2.8%.
Russia hiked its key interest rate to 17% from 10.5% effective Tuesday, citing rising devaluation and inflation risks.
AT HOME

Sensex lost 31 points to settle at 27350 while Nifty finished at 8220, down 4 points. BSE mid-cap and small-cap indices lost 0.5% and 0.6% respectively. Except a 0.4% rise in BSE Bankex, all other sectoral indices ended in red with Realty and Consumer Durable indices leading the tally, giving away 2% each.
November WPI came in at zero v/s 1.77% in October on the back of a continuous decline in fuel and food prices.  Core inflation fell to 2.21% from 2.5%.
FIIs net sold stocks and stock futures worth Rs 456 cr and 889 cr respectively but net bought index futures worth Rs 179 cr. DIIs were net buyers to the tune of Rs 136 cr.
Rupee plunged 65 paise, the most in over 4 months, to end at 62.94/$, the weakest level in 10-1/2 months.
November trade deficit hit an 18-month high of $17 bn as exports grew by tepid 7.3% to $26 bn while imports jumped 27% to $43 bn.
To revive stalled plans and help banks tide over mounting bad loans, the RBI yesterday eased norms for structuring of existing long-term project loans to infrastructure and core industries.
