Export-focused software companies extended their losses for the third day as the rupee tested fresh 19-month highs, deepening concerns their margins could be impacted. By 11:24am, the 30-share BSE index was trading up 0.21% at 17,978.30, with 23 of its components gaining. It rose to 18,008.40 in early deals, which was its highest level since 27 February, 2008. The 50-share NSE index was up 0.3% at 5,379.20.
“Global cues and earnings optimism are pushing the market higher,” said Ambareesh Baliga, vice-president of Karvy Stock Broking. “But stocks are overvalued. It is getting to be a liquidity-driven rally.”The 14-day relative strength index of the BSE benchmark was at 70, the upper limit that indicates the market was overbought.
The market has been boosted by foreign funds who have bought around $4.9 billion of Indian equities so far in 2010, adding to $17.5 billion last year.Automakers raced ahead on expectations consumer demand for vehicles would remain strong on the back of rising incomes.
“Volume growth is expected to continue, driven by strong economic recovery, pent-up demand, increase in availability of finance and new product launches expanding the market,” brokerage Motilal Oswal said in a note.
Top vehicles maker Tata Motors was up 1.7%, while carmaker Maruti Suzuki rose 1.2% utility vehicle leader Mahindra and Mahindra climbed 0.7%.
