"It is widely acknowledged that India remains at risk tactically because of the need to fund increased positions in China but there is widespread agreement that India remains the best long-term equity story in the Asia and emerging market context. To deal with this conundrum, investors seem to be reducing exposure to high PE Indian consumer discretionary stocks rather than reducing core bank holdings.

"I am a Nifty Bank option seller but whenever I find momentum in Nifty, I buy Nifty futures. The strategy there is to hold for 2 months. Sometimes if the market is trending, you may not get anything by selling options. Then you have to sell in the money option or buy options with the right position sizing. Mostly, in a mild market, non-directional option selling works. But if the market is trending, then I am ready to go in futures or option buying as well."

Although the RBI guidelines seem promising, seamless debt recovery from borrowers is still a far-fetched reality for lenders.

Since interest is the primary income source for lenders, many commercial banks and regulated entities are facing losses and are becoming reluctant to offer loans in the future due to the piling up of non-performing assets (NPAs).

While down from 16% from a year earlier, the gain was still above the average of 10.6% over any decade since 1927, and beat all but four long-term returns at the end of 13 bear markets.
