At the two day meet of public sector financial institutions called “Gyan Sangam”, government stayed away from announcing any immediate major decision, either with respect to government control on banks, recapitalization or, importantly, consolidation but laid out a broad agenda for change.
Among the key commitments PSU banks made were to reorient strategies to enable small ones to focus on niche capabilities, implement steps to shore up talent, use technology in a greater way, strengthen risk management and work more closely with non-bank channels such as payment management systems or bank correspondents. At the same time, banks urged the government to provide them greater leeway by considering transferring its stake to an independent bank investment committee run by professionals, and in the long run look to reducing its stake below 51 percent – key recommendations of the PJ Nayak committee. Bank chiefs also stressed upon the need for greater freedom in hiring decisions, lesser scrutiny from vigilance agencies, stronger debt recovery laws and fewer interference from governments in the form of market-distorting debt waivers or interest rate caps.
OUTLOOK
Today morning barring a 1.5% higher Shanghai, other Asian markets are trading with cuts of 0.5%-1% and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 20 points lower opening for our market.
On Friday, Nifty soared 111 points to end at 8395, decisively closing above the 8373 resistance, which was the 61.8% retracement level of the entire 8627-7961 fall. The benchmark has also regained the higher-top higher-bottom formation on the daily chart, turning the near term view decisively bullish.
8500, where the uppder band of bollinger on the daily chart is placed, would be the immediate target to eye above which 8627 would be the ultimate target for this upmove.
Immediate support on the hourly chart is placed around 8280, with the stop loss of which trading longs should be held on to.
