Global Markets updates

GIFT Nifty

The GIFT Nifty, which gained 62.50 points, or 0.28 percent, suggests that the Indian stock market is off to a good start. The 22,090.50 level was the trading range for the Nifty futures.

US Markets

As retail sales data showed a greater decrease than anticipated, US markets closed higher on Thursday, stoking expectations that the Federal Reserve will soon begin lowering interest rates in the upcoming months.

The Nasdaq Composite increased by 47.03 points, or 0.30 percent, to 15,906.17, while the S&P 500 index gained 29.05 points, or 0.58 percent, to finish at 5,029.67 points. At 38,774.73, the Dow Jones Industrial Average increased by 350.07 points, or 0.91 percent.

Asian Markets

Early on Friday, Asian markets were up, with the Nikkei up 1.2 percent and the Kospi up 0.6 percent.


Following a varied but generally strong set of U.S. economic data on Thursday, the dollar declined for a second straight session. This is probably because the Federal Reserve will likely lower interest rates by June, the first since the pandemic.

At 104.28, the US dollar index was down 0.4 percent last time. The dollar fell 0.4% vs the yen to 149.92.

Gold Prices

As traders reduced their expectations of earlier and larger rate cuts by the Federal Reserve this year, gold prices continued to hover around a two-month low on Thursday. The markets are now waiting for a plethora of US economic data to provide more clarity.

As of 11:58 GMT, spot gold was up 0.3 percent at $1,997.10 an ounce, but it was still close to its lowest level since Wednesday, December 13. Futures for US gold increased by 0.3 percent to $2,009.20.

Crude Oil

Although investors were focused on an International Energy Agency (IEA) report that indicated slower demand growth this year, oil prices increased by more than 1% on Thursday following U.S. retail data that caused a sell-off in the dollar.

At $82.86 a barrel, Brent crude futures finished the day up $1.26, or 1.5 percent. At $78.03, US West Texas Intermediate crude futures increased by $1.39, or 1.8 percent.

News Updates

US retail sales plummet dramatically in January, while weekly jobless claims drop

January’s US retail sales decreased more than anticipated, primarily due to a drop in revenue at car dealerships and petrol stations.

The Census Bureau of the Commerce Department said on Thursday that retail sales decreased by 0.8 percent in January, most likely as a result of winter storms. Sales for December increased by 0.4 percent, as opposed to the 0.6 percent that had been previously reported, according to revised data.

Government hikes the windfall profits tax on fuel and crude oil

With effect from February 15, the government has modified its windfall profits tax on crude petroleum.

The Special Additional Excise Duty (SAED) on crude petroleum would rise from Rs 3,200 per tonne to Rs 3,300 per tonne as a result of the changes, and the tax on diesel will go from zero to Rs 1.50 per litre. Additionally, SAED for petrol and aviation turbine fuel (ATF) will remain zero.

The government increased the windfall tax on domestically produced crude oil earlier this month from Rs 1,700 per tonne to Rs 3,200 per tonne.

Special Additional Excise Duty (SAED) is the tax imposed.
