Nifty, Sensex, Bank Nifty may move up: Weekly market report
Nifty has to close above 8,390 for the first confirmation of a new upmove
 
The stock market is fearful about the potential negative news from international markets and is therefore moving up cautiously. Today’s market indices closed with marginal gains. The S&P BSE Sensex closed at 27,661.40, up 0.32%. It opened at 27,705.36 and touched a high of 27,729.46 and a low of 27,530.90. The CNX Nifty closed at 8,360.55, up 0.38%.  It opened at 8,365.70 and touched a low of 8,315.40 and a high of 8,377.10. Bank Nifty, as expected was more bullish, closing at 18,719.80, up 1.14%. It opened at 18,584.95 and touched a low of 18,534.55 and a high of 18,767.80.
 
On Monday, the stock market displayed bullishness in a spectacular fashion. After being down 98.75 points at the opening following the news of Greek referendum Sunday, the NSE’s CNX Nifty recovered the entire loss and closed higher, even as all global markets were awash with red. The market is set to record further gains, our guess.
 
The 50-stock benchmark opened Tuesday higher and moved in a range up to 2pm. After this, it made a quick plunge into the red. It tried recovering but after reaching up to Monday’s close, Nifty slipped again and closed marginally lower. The S&P BSE Sensex closed flat some 37 points or 0.13% down in the day's trade. The Sensex touched a high of 28,335.23 points and a low of 28,084.36 points in the intra-day trade. The 50-scrip Nifty closed 11.35 lower points or 0.13% down at 8,510.80 points. In an emergency meeting of Eurozone leaders in Brussels, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras was expected to reveal fresh proposals to the country's creditors, was the Tuesday report.
 
Drawn by the bull market, companies have been lining up initial public offers (IPOs). At least three companies -- low-cost carrier IndiGo, staffing firm Teamlease and e-retailer Infibeam – were expected to raise an over Rs3,000 crore. The 50-stock index opened Wednesday below Tuesday’s level and after a range bound session till 10.30am, started moving sharply lower and hit a six-day low. Thereafter, Nifty tried to recover, was not successful and closed just off the day’s low. The continuous slide in the Chinese stock markets, crashing commodity prices and the stalemate in the Greece debt talks dampened investor sentiments.
 
On Thursday, indices remained subdued but recorded only minor losses with the market players keeping an eye on the China meltdown and stalemate in the Greek debt crisis. On Friday too, the indices remained subdued even though all global markets were sharply higher on the hopes of a resolution to the Greek crisis.

How to make exercise a habit
What can prompt you to make exercise a habit that is hard to break? Certain cues can prod people to automatically go to the gym and increase exercise frequency, a study says.
 
Some interventions designed to help people start and continue exercising may focus on the execution habit, or an exact routine to follow at the gym, said Alison Phillips, an assistant professor of psychology at Iowa State University.
 
However, Phillips' research, published in the journal Health Psychology, found that it is the instigation habit - or cues that prompt people to automatically go to the gym - that increases exercise frequency.
 
"From a health perspective, we want people to engage in physical activity frequently, and so instigation habit is the type of habit to promote that to happen," Phillips said.
 
"Regardless of the type of exercise you are going to do on a particular day, if you have an instigation habit, you will start exercising without having to think a lot about it or consider the pros and cons."
 
For example, Phillips said many people exercise after work. The end of the workday presents their cue to drive to the gym and workout instead of driving home.
 
For others, the cue may be the alarm clock going off in the morning signalling that it is time to go for a run or a bike ride.
 
Some research suggests that it may take a month or longer of repeated behaviour before a cue reliably and automatically triggers a behaviour. Sticking with the same time of the day might help initially, Phillips said.
 
For anyone who is new to exercise or uncomfortable going to the gym, following the same routine can help build self-confidence at the activity and being active in general.
 
However, for others the repetitiveness of sticking to a specific routine may be detrimental.
 
"It might be important for people to start to do the same thing until they realise they can do this, but in the long-term there does not seem to be a benefit of doing the same things over and over again," Phillips said.

Discussing religion improves health
Discussion on religion and spirituality can often lead to improved physical and mental health, but clinical social workers are not integrating these conversations into their counselling sessions, a study says.
 
Licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs) account for the largest number of clinically trained helping professionals in the US.
 
"It's that big elephant in the room. If we ignore it, we are ignoring a huge component of their lives that may be tied to the clinical issue," said Holly Oxhandler from Baylor University.
 
Oxhandler and colleagues surveyed 442 LCSWs across the US for the study, which was published in the journal Social Work.
 
The survey revealed that the vast majority of LCSWs, with more than 80 percent responding favourably on most of the survey items, have positive attitudes regarding the integration of their clients' religion and spirituality into their discussions.
 
"They are confident in their abilities to assess and discuss their clients' beliefs, and find it feasible to do so. But they are not doing it... I'm still boggled by the fact that they are so disconnected between their views and their behaviours," she said.
 
Oxhandler said that from the 1920s to the 1970s, there was a push for what is called the "medical model" of practice, which she said had no mention of religion or spirituality because there was no research to support the discussion about clients' faith and practice during that time.
 
"It wasn't until the 1980s when some researchers were saying, 'Well, it's kind of an important area of their clients' culture that we need to be considering in clinical practice'."
 
It is important for social workers to be trained to learn about religions other than their own, she said adding: "If you're a Christian social worker working in a medical setting and you have a Muslim client who's in the hospital, how do you know that she needs to be positioned a certain way within her room when she prays five times a day?"

Sir Newton says Energy can never be created nor destroyed but it only gets transformed.So logically even after the death visible/measurable dead weight of the body multiplied by 9.8kg/cmsq gravitional pull creates an energy force which needs 4 persons to carry the body to crematorium.

Science is not matured to handle very pico/nano forms of emotional/psychological/spiritual enregies but we all experience it & like it hence use of right spirit of religion in right perspective under a divine Guru is God sent blessings which often cures us hence believe experience the divine.There are sciences like Astorlogy which accurately times /remedies the karmic doshas with cosmic cross/like vibrational energies from Mantra( Mann-Mind /Trartna-Protection),Yantra-Yan-technques /Trarana Protection) & finally Yantra ( Yan-Tools Trarana-Protection).Mail [email protected] for more information on Fusion of Science & Religion.I am an High Tech Software Engineer who uses Scientific religious theories for divine interventions for safety & healthy growth.
