Global Markets updates

GIFT Nifty

Trends in the GIFT Nifty show a solid start for India’s broader index, with a gain of 203 points (0.92 percent). The Nifty futures were trading near the 22,186 mark.

Asian Markets

Asia-Pacific markets matched Wall Street’s gains overnight, as investors anticipated Chinese manufacturing data.

While other Asian stock markets fell on Thursday, China’s CSI 300 closed nearly 2% higher at 3,516.08, ahead of the purchasing managers’ index reading for February.

Dollar

The US inflation data for January was in line with experts’ forecasts, which eased concerns that price pressures may be seeing a renewed spike. This news caused the dollar to decline on Thursday.

While bitcoin maintained close to its more than two-year high, which it touched on Wednesday, the yen strengthened as a policymaker suggested that ultra-easy policies could need to end.

Although US prices increased in January, the yearly rise in inflation was the lowest in over three years, meaning that the Federal Reserve’s June interest rate decrease remains a possibility.

Gold Prices

On Thursday, gold reached a one-month high as the dollar declined following the release of U.S. inflation data that met forecasts. Traders were looking for clues about potential interest rate reductions from additional remarks made by Federal Reserve members.

At 12:59 p.m. ET (1759 GMT), spot gold was up 0.5 percent at $2,045.59 per ounce. US gold futures increased by 0.6% to $2,054.40. Palladium increased by 1.1% to $939.75, platinum remained unchanged at $878.73, while silver increased by 1% to $22.67 per ounce.

Crude Oil

Oil prices increased slightly on Thursday as US inflation statistics supported the demand view for a June interest rate decrease while US President Joe Biden’s remarks over the ongoing Gaza conflict lifted supply sentiment.

At 11:55 a.m. EST (1655 GMT), Brent crude futures for April delivery, which expires on Thursday, increased by 9 cents to $83.77 a barrel. At $82.73, the more active May contract saw a 58-cent increase. The US oil contract for April increased by 65 cents to $79.19 a barrel.

News Updates

India’s core sector growth fell to 3.6% in January, a 15-month low.

Based on data issued by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry on February 29, India’s eight major industries had growth of 3.6 percent in January.

In the first month of 2024, the growth rate of India’s eight major infrastructure sectors—coal, crude oil, steel, cement, electricity, fertilisers, refinery products, and natural gas—was 3.6%, the lowest in the previous fifteen months.

Growth in the core sector was 3.8% as of December 2023. On February 29, the ministry of commerce updated this percentage to 4.9 percent.

As of January 2023, the eight main sectors’ combined output had increased by 9.7%.

India’s budget deficit for April–January increased to Rs 11.03 lakh cr, or 64% of the target for FY24.

According to data released on February 29, the Controller General of Accounts revealed that the Central government’s budget deficit increased to Rs 11.03 lakh crore in April 2023–January 2024 from Rs 9.82 lakh crore in April–December.

The fiscal deficit for the first ten months of the current fiscal year, at Rs 11.03 lakh crore, represents 63.6 percent of the revised forecast of Rs 17.35 lakh crore. The initial estimate for the budget was Rs 17.87 lakh crore.

In April 2022–January 2023, the budget deficit amounted to 67.8% of the objective for the fiscal year 2022–2023.

The Nasdaq closes at its highest level since 2021.

For the first time in more than two years, the Nasdaq closed at a record high on Thursday, driven by investor optimism about artificial intelligence, which has sparked gains in Nvidia and other large tech stocks.

The Nasdaq surpassed its record high of 16,057.44 on November 19, 2021, by 144.18 points, or 0.90 percent, to close at 16,091.92.
