Monthly Markets Update - India October 2011only once the result season starts this month. We continue to be positive on US equities for the nextthree years as the market re-rates to a higher multiple of earnings. On the other hand, the on-goingdebt crisis is having a negative impact on the sentiments and confidence of countries like Germany andthe Euro Zone in general. Finally, as far as the Japanese economy is concerned, the impact of theearthquake along with the problems in US and Europe are having a negative impact on their exports. Wecontinue to stick to our view that the Japanese economy will recover at a slower pace as compared toother regions and countries. 6.
