Global Markets updates

GIFT Nifty

Trends in the GIFT Nifty imply a flat start for India’s broader index, with a 10-point rise. The Nifty futures were trading near the 21,915.50 mark.

US Markets

US markets rose on Thursday as investors focused on a slew of high-profile reports and Friday’s employment data, a day after the Federal Reserve deflated lingering expectations that interest rate reduction would begin as early as March.

While a broad surge brought all three major US market indices far higher, the tech-heavy Nasdaq outperformed. The S&P 500 rose 1.25 percent to finish the session at 4,906.19 points. The Nasdaq soared 1.30 percent to 15,361.64 points, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 0.97 percent to 38,519.84 points.

Asian Markets

Asian markets rose early Friday, reflecting Wall Street’s recovery from earlier this week’s sell-off after Chairman Jerome Powell signalled the US Federal Reserve was unlikely to decrease interest rates in March.

Oil prices

On Thursday, oil prices dropped more than 2 percent due to unconfirmed claims of an Israeli-Hamas ceasefire and a power outage that caused the closure of a sizable US refinery.

Although there isn’t now a truce, a Qatari official confirmed to Reuters that Hamas has accepted a ceasefire proposal made earlier this week.

US West Texas Intermediate crude futures slid $2.03, or 2.7 percent, to $73.82, while Brent crude futures fell $1.85, or 2.5 percent, to close at $78.70 a barrel.

Gold Prices

After data revealed that weekly unemployment claims in the US increased last week, gold prices strengthened Thursday, drawing attention from investors to the non-farm payrolls data in the US for more indications regarding the Federal Reserve’s policy direction.

Earlier in the day, spot gold reached its highest level since January 3 at $2,054.89 per ounce, up 0.9 percent. US gold futures ended the day at $2071.1, up 0.2 percent.

US dollar

Following impressive huge tech profits on Wall Street, the dollar saw broad declines on Friday as traders anticipated U.S. jobs data that was expected later in the day to determine when the Federal Reserve could start reducing rates.

Following the Fed’s most recent policy meeting, where rates were held unchanged as anticipated but Chair Jerome Powell resisted market expectations of rate cuts in March, comes the highly anticipated nonfarm payrolls report later on Friday.

At its most recent value of 103.02, the dollar index was headed for its first weekly loss of the year.

News Updates

The Bank of England maintains a 5.25% interest rate.

For the fourth time in a row, the Bank of England kept its benchmark interest rate at zero on Thursday, following US Federal Reserve policy, because rising inflation makes it impossible to lower borrowing costs.

Following a routine policy meeting, the BoE announced in a statement that it had decided to leave its rate at 5.25 percent, the highest level in 16 years.

Due to robust JLR sales growth, Tata Motors’ Q3 net profit could increase by 53% and revenue by 22%.

Due to price increases, an improved product mix, and significant growth in Jaguar Land Rover volumes, Tata Motors is expected to enjoy robust rise in net profit and revenue in the third quarter of its fiscal year. On February 2, the car major will release its Q3 FY24 earnings.

Six brokerages’ average estimates indicate that Tata Motors’ net profit for the October–December quarter will increase by 54% year over year to Rs 4,547 crore. The revenue could increase by 22% year over year to Rs 1,08,169 crore. It is also anticipated that EBITDA margin will increase significantly by 273 basis points to 13.63 percent.
