Global Market Check

GIFT Nifty

The GIFT Nifty index started slightly negative, losing 21 points, while futures reached 20,078 points after reaching a high of 20,110 points.

US Markets

Stock futures on Wall Street were quiet on Tuesday evening as investors awaited the Federal Reserve’s latest interest rate decision and economic update.

Dow Jones Industrial Average futures were flat, while S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures ticked up less than 0.1% each.

The Federal Open Market Committee’s policy decision is due out on Wednesday, and investors will be closely watching the summary of economic projections and the press conference of Fed chair Jerome Powell for clues about the months ahead.

Wealth management firm Certuity’s Dylan Kremer predicts that investors will be looking for longer-term expectations and a terminal rate, and downplay any inflationary items, such as the oil markets.

Trading has been mostly quiet so far this week.

European Markets

European markets fell on Tuesday due to the start of the US Federal Reserve’s monetary policy meeting.

The Stoxx 600 index was 0.15 percent lower, with retail stocks experiencing the biggest losses at 1.6%.

Banks and oil and gas stocks were up around 1%.

Investors are expecting the US central bank to hold interest rates steady in its latest policy decision on Wednesday, and will assess the move to understand its stance on inflation.

Decisions are also due from central banks in the UK, Switzerland, Turkey, and beyond.

  Asian Markets

Asia-Pacific markets are expected to experience losses from Tuesday as investors await China’s one-year and five-year loan prime rates and the US Federal Reserve’s rate decision. August trade data from Japan was released, and wholesale inflation in South Korea jumped for the first time since July 2022. Japan’s Nikkei 225 fell marginally, while the Topix was near the flatline. In Australia, the S&P/ASX 200 fell 0.11 percent, while South Korean markets gained 0.1% and the Kosdaq slightly increased. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index futures were at 17,980, lower than the HSI’s last close.

Oil Prices

Oil prices surged over $1 on Tuesday, marking a fourth consecutive session of gains due to weak US shale output and supply concerns from extended production cuts by Saudi Arabia and Russia. Brent crude futures rose by 1.31 percent to $95.67 a barrel, while US West Texas Intermediate crude futures rose by 2.1% to $93.40. The rally has reached its highest since last year, and analysts predict tight oil markets throughout winter.

Dollar Index

The Dollar index closed 0.06 percent lower in futures at 104.79, while the dollar’s value was near Rs 83.11.

Gold Prices

Gold reached a two-week peak on Tuesday, with a dollar pullback. Prices remained narrowly ranging as the Federal Reserve’s policy meeting focused on interest rate outlook and economic projections. Spot gold rose 0.1% to $1,934.10 per ounce, while US gold futures gained 0.2% to $1,956.80.

News Updates

Monetary policy to dominate commodity market sentiments this week

Global markets saw a boost as Chinese regulators boosted domestic consumption, while US inflationary pressures limited gains elsewhere. The US dollar reached a six-month high of 105.43, driven by persistent US inflation. The US Consumer Price Index rose by 0.6% in August, the largest monthly increase since May 2022. Core inflation moderated for the fifth consecutive month to 4.3%, aligning with market expectations. Retail sales also exceeded expectations, demonstrating consumer resilience. This leaves room for potential interest rate hikes in November or December, following an expected pause this month.

Jupiter Life Line Hospitals likely to list with 30% premium today

The initial public offering of the hospital chain was subscribed 63.72 times during September 6-8, with qualified institutional buyers buying 187.32 times the allotted quota. High net-worth individuals and retail investors also supported the issue, putting in bids 34.75 times and 7.73 times the portion set aside for them.
