The day of Makar Sankranti will be celebrated in India on 15th January 2015. As in Bangalore, Sun enters Capricorn, i.e. Makar rashi on January 14th, 2015 at 18:57 hours. However, on 14th, sunset is indicated to be 18:07 hours, which is before the astronomical event and hence the festival will be celebrated on 15th January.

Stock Market Predictions January 2015

By Kshitij Sharma, Dec 21, 2014

Looking back at the previous month - December 2014, my predictions about the profit taking and market going down were bang on. The on place where I failed miserably was my reading on the oil prices. I had predicted that oil prices will break the downward trend and will up up, but looks like भगवान को कुछ और ही मंज़ूर था. I need to learn more. Not only was the crude down, it broke years of support levels. The other statement that did not work was on food (or retail) inflation - it did not go up and on the other hand, CPI fell to a record low of 4.38 per cent from 5.52 per cent in October.
