Astro Kundali:
Ganesha's observations about LIX 15 Index
According to the principles of Vedic Astrology, the Kundli of LIX 15 Index has a Leo Ascendant and Gemini Moon sign. This index was launched on a new moon dark half phase, in the constellation of Punarvasu. A combination of Sun-Moon-Jupiter-Mars-retrograde Mercury are placed in the House of Gains and is aspecting the Stock Market House.

The main drawback in the Kundali of LIX 15 Index is the fact that as it was launched on an Amavasya or New Moon, hence it is devoid of the support of the Moon. The support of Moon is essential for starting any auspicious project. Due to this factor, the kind of involvement which was expected from the Foreign Institutional Investors (FII's) in this index will be less than expected. The support of FII's will be slow to come and not in an adequate quantity. Additionally, Kalsarpa dosha is present in the chart of the index, due to which it will suffer from frequent fluctuations and will be unstable.

The positive factors in the Kundali of LIX 15 Index are that a combination of Sun-Moon-Jupiter-Mars-retrograde Mercury are present in the House of Gains and all these planets are beneficial and positive, imparting overall strength to the Kundali of the index. Presently, Jupiter Mahadasha and Jupiter Antardasha is going on till 9.1.2015, which imparts positivity to the index. However, this is good for only for long term gains, and short term gain cannot be expected from these Dashas. Amongst the number of sectors which constitute the LIX 15 index, there may be some hurdles/obstructions associated with the steel and construction sectors, while the banking sector will be good.
