Weekly Portfolio Review: 08 January 2011

BSE Sensex lost 817 points (3.98%) to close the week at 19,692 and NSE Nifty 230 points (3.75%) to close at 5,905. My portfolio lost 1.69% in the week. In my portfolio, Opto Circuits lost 10.9%. Other major losers were L&T, Oil Country Tubular, Hero Honda, Bharti Airtel and Biocon which lost 5% to 7%.   Zensar Technology and GAIL were major gainers.

Interest rate hike fears amid raising inflation affected the market negatively and going forward it will be a great concern in the short term. Interest rate hike will affect the overall economic activities in the country while food inflation may continue in top gear due to supply constraints.
