2:36 pm New products from Hind Zinc soon:

2:20 pm Outlook:
Earnings are going to be a major driver for the market. The Sensex could touch 30,000 soon if earnings continue to pick up, says Sashi Krishnan, Chief Information Officer, Birla Sun Life Insurance.

He is postive on the market in the long-term as he sees a lot of overseas flows continue into India. But there could be a positive effect if the US Federal Reserve raises rates faster than expectation.

The second quarter results may be under pressure for corporate banks, says Krishnan.
