TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

I will start with the latest BSE circular on tighter surveillance. What is your take on this rule that had terrified the broader market?
Well, it was just a little bit of miscommunication that added to the volatility. The midcaps have maybe had the best one-and-a-half years. And after having a wonderful July, they were due for profit booking. A short sell-off in the midcaps was anyway due, and we have seen money again rotate back into the largecaps. So this was nothing new, it was part of the market cycle. I think we are done and dusted with this issue now.
