NSE going Bearish?

After a good spell during the first few weeks into the new year that saw the NSE share index surge above the 6000 level, the market appears to have gone down south with most counters registering lower average daily prices than the previous day prices.

Though the market is bracing itself for a season of new releases of financial results by most companies across the various counters, pundits are cautiously watching how far this would go.

Nevertheless with expected economic growth likely to hit 6% mark, the news can only be seen as a promise of good tidings for most players in the market and a time of better returns accruing to investors.

'The bearish trend seen during this time is a short term correction mechanism of the stock market and nothing to worry about as most counters had been overprices given the consistent surge during the last months of 2006 ' ackowledges Geoffrey Koech a Portoflio Analyst with Patana Securities Ltd.
