EQUITIES BOUNCE BACK ON DALA STREET
            Share prices bounced back and recorded gains on the Bombay Stock Exchange today due to sustained support from financial institutions in over a dozen scrips. The sentiment was also favourably affected by the new three year export and import policy announced by the Government. However, the operators seemed to ignore the discouraging advices from Delhi, Kolkata and Ahmedabad stock markets.
            The bear hammering & persistent bull liquidation, which had gripped the market during the past few days, seemed to have been arrested following large scale support by institutional investors.
            Tata Steel recovered from Rs.631 to Rs.655 on heavy institutional support before closing at Rs. 646 with a net gain of Rs.5. Telco moved up to Rs.442.50 on speculative support, reacting thereafter on profit selling to finish at Rs.428.75 with a small gain of Rs.3.75. Century rose sharply from Rs.785 to Rs.820 on fresh buying support before closing at Rs.807.50 with a net gain of Rs.27.75. In kerb deals, trading activity was poor and was confined to some deals in Tisco shares which moved between Rs.665 and Rs.672 and quoted around Rs.667 in the evening.
