The Indian market made a smart comeback in the week gone by, with benchmark indices rising over 2 percent. However, weakness in the last two sessions cut profits and pushed the Nifty back below the psychologically important 15,000-mark. Improving macro numbers and a strong showing from autos in February lifted the sentiment, while rising bond yields and weak global cues kept the bulls in check. The BSE Sensex added 1,305.33 points, or 2.6 percent, to end the week at 50,405.32 and the Nifty50 rose 408.95 points, or 2.8 percent, to finish at 14,938.1. Experts expect volatility to continue in the coming week. Investors, they say, should keep a close eye on the US for triggers and oil prices along with economic data points on the domestic front. The market is on March 8 expected to react to the US Senate passing President Joe Biden's much-awaited $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package on March 6. It is one of the largest stimulus bills in the US history, a Reuters report said.

Balrampur Chini | The scrip gained over 13 percent in the week gone by. Pramod Patwari, CFO of Balrampur Chini Mills, told CNBC-TV18 in an interview that despite the challenges, India should be able to export five-six million tonne of sugar this year. “It is correct that there are some challenges in respect to container availability but what we have seen in the last year also, in the midst of COVID also, the industry was in a position to export entire quota of six million tonne." He said currently they were selling at Rs 32 ex-mill in Uttar Pradesh (UP). However, he expects domestic sugar prices to go up in the next 10-15 days. “We expect sugar prices in the domestic front to go up. The summer is setting in and once the mills start closing down their operations in view of lower cane availability, we are of the view that in next 10-15 days sugar prices should improve,” he said. Patwari said that Balrampur Chini achieved 98 percent of ethanol supply this year and a new ethanol plant would be commissioned by November 2022.
Adani Gas | The stock price jumped over 36 percent last week. Ruchit Jain, Senior Analyst - Technical and Derivatives at Angel Broking, is of the view that the stock gave a breakout from its consolidation phase in mid-February and since then, it has seen a sharp surge with good volumes. The overall trend is positive and since the prices are in uncharted territory, it would be prudent to ride this trend with a trailing stop loss method. The short-term moving average points to support at Rs 600 and thus, one can hold the stock with a stop placed below the support and ride the trend. Adani Total Gas Limited has raised compressed natural gas (CNG) and domestic piped natural gas (PNG) prices across regions.
