Global Market Check

GIFT Nifty

The GIFT Nifty index started slightly positive with a 33-point gain, while futures reached 20,167 points after reaching a high of 20,174 points.

US Markets

Stock futures remained near the flat line on Wednesday as traders prepared for the August producer price index, a measure of wholesale inflation.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 11 points or 0.03%, while S&P 500 futures ticked up 0.09%.

Nasdaq 100 futures inched 0.1% higher.

The core consumer price index (CPI) gained 0.3% from the prior month and 4.3% from 12 months earlier, compared to estimates of 0.2% and 4.3%, respectively.

Headline inflation increased 0.6% on a monthly basis and 3.7% from the prior year.

The August CPI reading is not expected to change the Federal Reserve’s course at its policy meeting beginning Sept. 19.

Fed funds futures pricing data shows a 97% likelihood of rates remaining unchanged next week, but markets are likely to remain volatile in the coming months.

European Markets

European stock markets closed slightly lower on Wednesday due to stronger than expected U.S. inflation data.

The Stoxx 600 index fell by 0.3%, with sectors and major bourses in negative territory.

Retail stocks dropped 0.9% to lead losses.

U.S. inflation data for August exceeded expectations, with the consumer price index rising 3.7% from a year ago.

Core CPI, which excludes food and energy, rose by 0.3% on the month and 4.3% on the year, in line with expectations.

  Asian Markets

Asia-Pacific markets experienced growth despite higher US inflation rates in August, reaching 3.7%.

The consumer price index rose 0.6% in August, in line with expectations.

The core CPI rose 4.3%, down from 4.7% in July.

Federal Reserve officials focus on core inflation as it provides a better indication of long-term trends.

The S&P/ASX 200 in Australia climbed marginally, ahead of August unemployment figures.

Japan’s Nikkei 225 rose 0.5%, while the Topix saw a smaller gain of 0.4%.

South Korea’s Kospi increased 0.43%, and the Kosdaq was 0.84% higher.

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index futures stood at 18,042, indicating a stronger open compared to the HSI’s close of 18,009.22.

Oil Prices

Oil prices rose on Wednesday due to expected tight crude supply for the rest of the year, which offset inflation concerns. The International Energy Agency (IEA) reported that Saudi Arabia and Russia’s extension of 1.3 million barrels per day of crude oil production cuts will lock in a substantial market deficit through the fourth quarter. The continuing supply cuts could lift Brent futures above the $100 a barrel threshold before the end of the year. U.S. consumer prices rose in August by their most in over a year, driven by a 10.6% increase in retail gasoline prices. Benchmark Brent futures rose 40 cents to $92.46 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude gained 41 cents to $89.25. The European Central Bank is expected to raise interest rates at its meeting on Thursday.

Dollar Index

The Dollar index closed 0.06 percent lower in futures at 104.65, while the dollar’s value was near Rs 83.09.

Gold Prices

Gold remained steady on Wednesday after a surge in U.S. consumer prices, indicating that inflation readings may not significantly change the Federal Reserve’s interest rate strategy. Spot gold was at $1,912.86 per ounce, while U.S. gold futures were at $1,935.40 per ounce. Labor Department data showed headline and core CPI in August rose 0.6% and 0.3%, respectively, month-on-month. However, traders’ expectations for the Fed to leave interest rates unchanged at its Sept. 19-20 policy meeting increased after the data, with a 44% chance of another hike before 2024. Precious metal investors are now focusing on retail sales numbers, which some believe is a more important indicator than the CPI data.

News Updates

The madcap run that has triggered the mid-cap fall in five charts

The sudden and steep cut in mid-cap stocks has caused panic among investors, with some segments of the market running ahead of their fundamentals. This is partly due to investors trying to chase the performance of mid-caps and small-caps, leading to an avalanche of fund flows into these categories of equity funds. Stock valuations have zoomed in certain pockets that promise high growth. Over the last four months, mid-cap and small-cap funds of domestic equity mutual funds have seen inflows of Rs 215 billion, while large-cap and flexi-cap funds have seen outflows of Rs 60 billion. This is considered exuberance by Kotak analysts.

Adani in talks for $3.5 billion, one of top Asia loans this year

Adani Group is in talks with banks to refinance debt taken on to fund its purchase of Ambuja Cements Ltd. This could be one of Asia’s largest syndicated loan deals of the year. Banks are likely to refinance a total of $3.5 billion, with Adani repaying at least $300 million on the original Ambuja facility. The Indian conglomerate, backed by billionaire Gautam Adani, has been in talks with lenders for several months to refinance up to $3.8 billion worth of debt taken for its Ambuja acquisition. DBS Group Holdings Ltd., First Abu Dhabi Bank PJSC, Mizuho Financial Group Inc, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc., and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp. will each lend around $400 million.

Reliance Retail in talks with Gulf, Singapore funds on $1.5 billion injection

India’s Reliance Retail is in talks with sovereign wealth funds of Singapore, Abu Dhabi, and Saudi Arabia for a combined $1.5 billion injection. The talks are part of an internal target to raise $3.5 billion, which the company aims to close by the end of September. QIA recently announced a $1 billion investment, while KKR & Co recently received $250 million. Singapore’s GIC, the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA), and Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) are looking to invest at least $500 million each in Reliance Retail at a valuation of $100 billion. Reliance Retail has declined to comment on media speculation and rumors.
