This document of facts and figures is compiled by RAMA KRISHNA VADLAMUDI, BOMBAY with data as on Dec.25th, 2009. As students of financial markets, every day we’re confronted with a host of possibilities and wild scenarios like an Alfred Hitchcock movie pumping up the adrenalin. Even though the capacity of our brain is rather limited (but, there’re no such limits for human spirit!), day in and day out, we’re forced to assimilate an overload of information, opinions or biases. With increased globalization, we’re impacted, on a minute-by-minute basis, by the movements in prices/indices of commodities, stocks and currencies; flows of liquidity across a wide swathe of countries/continents/oceans; economic data; and actions/inactions of central banks and governments of several important countries. All the markets are now truly and fully integrated!
