Stock Traders expected market to panick and make new low as the news from ongoing Greece crisis arrived. The Greece ruling party law makers called for the resignation of existing PM George Papandreou, whose government has agreed to tight measures as suggested by EU, and IMF in turn for a bail out. While the biggest risk out of this development is that if the George Panapdreou government collapses, the new opposition will likely turn the matters upside down as they are very much against the austerity and debt restructuring plan. The Greece markets and European markets fell 1-2% on the news and recoverd later on. However Indian market maintained ground and rose in last hour despite this bad news which has again reinforced the bullish undertone in the market persisting through out the beginning of this present derivatives expiry. Media reports suggests the market inched up as European markets showed strength and hopes that the Greece referendum will not happen. Some global experts are also contending that a Greek default might in fact be welcomed by the markets and not responded with a panick. However, the ripple effects of such a default could be devastating for the rest of the eurozone nations. The world markets are also looking for the G-20 meeting that started today. Our approach of buy on dips and avoid 'jump and sell' strategy made some money while avoiding loss of a lot.
