Marking a huge contrast to last week's market behaviour, Dalal Street gave up all the gains of last week to end near the low point of the trading range. The market was sitting on the verge of a breakout, but that did not fructify as the market refused to break above its crucial resistance zone. Nifty stayed relatively rangebound during the week as Nifty oscillated in a 250-point range. The shorter timeframe charts had already shown some weakness and loss of momentum, and the longer-term charts painted a similar picture. Nifty finally ended with a net loss of 134.55 points, or 1.12 per cent, on a weekly note. The markets is poised at a crucial juncture once again. India VIX has cooled off by a further 1.85% to 13.64. The Volatility Index currently trades near its multi-month low, and this reflects complacency of the market players. Complacency at market highs is not good for near-term outlook. Apart from this, Nifty has kept alive hopes for a possible breakout as the RSI has attempted … [Read more...] about Dalal Street week ahead: Nifty signals loss of momentum, volatility likely to increase

If you haven’t seen it, you’ve almost certainly heard of it. It’s a Hollywood-quality film produced by Oscar winner James Cameron and it’s easy to get sucked right in by the slick editing of all those high-performing vegans. But just like Cameron’s other films, like Titanic and Avatar, this one is also best taken with a grain of salt as you attempt to separate fact from fiction. Take Arnold Schwarzenegger, who pops up talking about the benefits of an all-green diet. This is Mr Universe, after all, and Arnie didn’t get that big eating kale. Arnold Schwarzenegger in his younger bodybuilding days, where he clearly wasn’t on a plant-based diet.Source:Supplied In fact, he would have chewed his way through Old MacDonald’s entire farm, and then some, when preparing for a competition in his hey day. Adding to the plot is Cameron’s reported $140 million dollar financial interest in a vegan protein business. Now I have to disclose here that … [Read more...] about Health Hacker: What you need to know before going vegan
Haylo good people, I’m back. A lot of you cursed me for not writing last week. But what to do, the batteries of the mind were totally discharged and I had to head elsewhere in the quest for eternal wisdom. It’s another thing that I’ve dutifully returned a failure, and shall continue to be an epitome of absurdity. Because I realised that all those stories about people leaving home in search for ‘answers’ are just those — stories. In reality, when you leave home, you usually come back with empty pockets, aching legs and constipation.However, there is one piece of eternal wisdom that I still managed to attain, in a moment of sheer enlightenment, sitting under a giant banyan tree. Okay fine, there were no banyan trees, but would you please let me present my thought in a fancy way, even though it may have arrived while I was sitting next to a trash bin at the departure lounge of their bigger-than-Bhatinda airport? During … [Read more...] about A Calmer You, By Sonal Kalra: Always in a rush. But why?
MUMBAI: IT giant Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), the largest private sector employer with a strength of over 4 lakh people on its payroll, has tweaked its health insurance policy to cover employees involved in a same-sex relationship. It would perhaps be the first Tata Group company to do so. In an email update to its employees, TCS announced the new changes which will benefit LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) employees. The new policy redefines 'spouse' as 'partner', thus broadening the scope to cover same-sex partners. Some progressive companies have already extended medical cover/family health insurance cover to same sex partners and these include RBS India, Citibank, Capgemini India, among others. Some of these policies are extended to live-in partners as well. TCS global diversity head Preeti D'mello told TOI the new policy was formalized last week. The definition of spouse will now include same-sex partners irrespective of their marital status. Under the new policy, … [Read more...] about TCS becomes first Tata company to extend medical cover benefits to LGBT employees
