Markets were down today  the BSE by 69 points going to 25705 and the Nse by 20 points going to 7870, the markets fell due to global cues and the fall was very minor in nature the severe fall was recovered later. Markets seem to be in a consolidation phase and business is going on in a good manner. Profit booking and buying are taking place in regular intervals and markets are steady enough. Investors are making profits and stocks are moving up and down periodically. There is a proposal to increase timings of markets to 5 PM which us a bad one were fluctuations will not be there and trading will be stagnant. Investors and brokers should oppose this move. HAPPY TRADING AND INVESTING
