Discrimination faced by Mumbaikars...

If the housing societies in Mumbai (Bombay) are only meant for families (married couples), then the government of Maharashtra should make marriage compulsory in the state/city.
Or else the government should tell its citizens where will Unmarried, Divorcees, Bachelors, Spinsters live in the city of skyscrapers or is Bombay only for those who have families.
This is one of the greatest mental blocks of Mumbaikars, who otherwise want to bask in the FALSE HALO of Cosmopolitanism.
This disease (of not giving apartments to Bachelors, Muslims, etc on rent) is specially prevalent in housing societies where the Gujaratis, Marathis and North Indians (to some extent) abound; while the rest of the population is more or less okay with the concept.
The government of Maharashtra should take this matter seriously and devise laws to eradicate this malice ASAP, so that BOMBAY (and its suburbs) becomes free of discrimination based on Marital Status, Religion, etc. Or else the Honourable Supreme Court of India should step in, and give directions to the state or central governments -- so that the fundamental rights of its citizens enshrined in the constitution of India is not violated.

 Gold likely to yo-yo on uncertainty over stimulus package
[Editor: There is no Uncertainty in the Stimulus Package, except the media generated Hoax. It is to be understood that hereto, Dr.Ben Bernanke and his deputies stressed that the US Fed might start tapering, once the data gives positive indication. So, there is no question of the US Fed removing QE in October, 2013, since the figures do suggest the same. Those who cannot read between the lines only can make such wild guesses, that the US Fed would start to limit its bond buying program from October, 2013. Moreover, Pharma (Opto Circuits Ltd, CMP: Rs.22.30) and IT companies are still looking good at this point of time, apart from Gold Loan Companies like Manappuram Finance Ltd (Rs.15.20)]

Chennai, Sept 25:  Gold prices on the domestic spot and futures market are likely to trade sideways on Wednesday as uncertainty over end to the US stimulus programme continues to worry the market.

Agencies reported a key decision maker as saying that the US Federal Reserve will begin cutting its $85-billion-a-month stimulus package before the year-end.

Elsewhere, US consumer confidence dropped as also rise in US home prices slowing in July.

Durable goods, home sales data

Data on US durable goods orders and new home sales later in the day could shed some light on which way the economy is heading and probably, provide some direction to the yellow metal.

Kharif crop forecast

The Indian Farm Ministry has said that the kharif or summer crop this year will be the highest over the last five years.

It remains to be seen see how the rural population reacts to a higher income, coming in at least from higher support price for foodgrains and major oilseeds. Most probably, this factor could cushion any steep fall in gold, for now.

Spot gold, gold futures

In early Asian trading, spot gold ruled at $1,324.74 an ounce and gold futures maturing in December at $1,324.90.

In the domestic market on Wednesday, gold for jewellery (99.5 per cent purity) edged marginally up at Rs 29,820 for 10 gm and pure gold (99.9 per cent purity) to Rs 29,970.

On MCX, October gold contracts could rule between Rs 29,500 and Rs 30,000.

Rupee Vs dollar

In the Indian context, the rupee’s movement against the dollar could also have a role to play since a stronger Indian currency makes the import of gold, crude oil and vegetable oils costlier.

Having dropped over the last four sessions, crude oil could edge higher on Wednesday, especially on speculation that US crude stockpiles could have dropped. Data on the stocks are expected later in the day.

Crude oil prices


Brent crude contract maturing in November was up at $108.78 a barrel and West Texas Intermediate for the same month at $103.27.

The oils and oilseeds complex is likely to head north on threat of frost in the US Midwest region besides bets that rains in that region are not enough to boost the crop. A rise on soyameal prices, too, could help the complex scale up.

Soyabean, crude palm oil


Chicago Board of Trade soyabean November contracts rose to $13.18 a bushel. Crude palm oil December contracts on Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Exchange opened higher at 2,310 ringgit or $716.50 a tonne.

Wheat, corn prices


With wheat prices rising above the 50-day moving average, technically they are likely to rise. Fundamentally, China has increased its import of US wheat and inspections for its exports are also higher.

On the other hand, Argentina, going through a dry period, could see frost in the main-growing area, threatening the standing crop further.

Corn (industrial maize), on the other hand, could drop as a higher harvest looms.

CBOT wheat for delivery in December rose to $6.59 a bushel and corn for delivery the same month to $4.49 a bushel.
