Full moons in the garden & the Nifty

The above flower is commonly known as "Nishagandhi" in India or ‘Queen of the Night’, the Japanese people call it Gekka Bijin, which means ‘Beautiful Woman Under the Moon’. Wikipedia description says Epiphyllum oxypetalum is a species of cactus and one of the most cultivated species in the genus. It is not a variety of nightblooming Cereus and shouldn't be confused with species of Selenicereus. Nishagandhi blooms more than once in a year, but on certain days(most of the buds blooms on day one and the remaining next day) only with a gap of more than one month. Similar to moon it takes around a fortnight to bloom after the buds appeard on plant's stems/leaves. And again similar to moon it blooms in the night only (after 9.00 p.m) and unblooms before the dawn. It's a wonderful flower with a pleasant aroma and you can watch its beauty in many Yutube videos.

Now to the point, how it catches our attention. Nandi observed that when ever the flower bloomed in his terrace garden, that day Nifty took a downward move. Last such dates were 27-Aug-13, 26-Jun-13 and 29-May-13 when Nifty lost 189 points, 20 points and 7 points respectively. On a search on the subject it was found that the flower bloomed on 5th August 2011 at Bangalore and on that day Nifty lost 120 points. On 20th September 2013 eight buds appeared in Nandi's terrace garden and it's growing steadily. The day when it will bloom is not known at present, may be on 1st or 2nd October. Waiting to see how it will be this time. From now on please observe the blooms in your garden and give your feed back. Like full moons it may have a success rate of 8 out of 10.

Raghuram Rajan's first RBI credit policy

Friday, the 20th September 2013: Reserve Bank of India headed by the new Governor Raghuram Rajan, in a surprise move, hiked the repo rate by 25bp to 7.50% from 7.25%. Minimum Standing Facility (MSF) rate reduced by 75bp from 10.25% to 9.50% and minimum daily maintenance of CRR reduced from 99% of requirement to 95%. The MSF was earlier hiked from 8.25% to 10.25% in mid-July 2013. As a result Nifty discarded most of yesterday's gains and slipped down to 5933 and after some volatile moves closed at 6012 with a loss of 104 points. Nifty futures range was 6155 - 5950 a difference of 205 points.

Today(16-9-13) "Thiruvonam day" Nifty opened at 5930, moved up to centre of P(5952), slipped down to bottom of P(5797), recovered and closed at 5841 with a loss of 10 points. Nifty futures range was 6029 - 5814, a huge difference of 215 points. Rahu-Saturn-Venus conjunction effect? (refer chart posted yesterday).

Grahanila(Planetary positions) as on 1st Sept 2013

As on 1st September 2013, The Sun & Mercury in Leo, Venus in Virgo, Saturn & Rahu in Libra, Ketu in Aries, Jupiter & Moon in Gemini and Mars in Cancer. "Kala Sarpa" yoga will continue till Saturn passes Rahu ie. up to 25th September 2013. But, Moon will pass Rahu on 9th September and make it invalid thereafter.

Planetary transits in September 2013 are 17th Sun -> Virgo, 5th Mercury -> Virgo, 6th Venus -> Libra, and 24th Mercury -> Libra.
Though it is felt that down move is yet to be completed, last weeks fast movements spanning 700 points creates ambiguity. Hence not making any futher comments. As Moon conjuncts Mars tomorrow it may be a down day. All other conjunctions are on holidays.
