Sensex, Nifty volatile; Bharti up 2%, Usha Martin soars 15%

JSPL is likely to be represented by Kapil Sibal.

In recent coal block auction, JSPL won Tara block for Rs 126 per tonne and Gare Palma IV/2 & Gare Palma IV/3 at Rs 108 per tonne.

10:20am Market Expert: The 5-6 percent downside seen in the Indian equity market is not a full fledged correction, it would be a correction only in case the market goes down 10 percent or so is the word coming in from Deepak Shenoy of Capital Mind.

In this correction, one could look at buying largecap FMCG stocks and midcap pharma, says Shenoy.
He is not very optimistic on banking sector but does not advise a sell for those holding them. In case the banks decide to pass on the RBI interest rate cut then they could become a buy, adds Shenoy.
