Global Markets updates

GIFT Nifty

With a gain of 83.50 points, or 0.38 percent, the GIFT Nifty trends suggest that the broader index in India is off to a solid start. The 21,968 mark was the focal point of the Nifty futures trade.

US Markets

Wednesday’s slightly lower closing price for US stocks came one day ahead of an important inflation report that may have a significant impact on when the Federal Reserve decides to cut interest rates.

The S&P 500 lost 8.42 points, or 0.17 percent, to 5,069.76, the Nasdaq Composite lost 87.56 points, or 0.55 percent, to 15,947.74, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average sank 23.39 points, or 0.06 percent, to 38,949.02.

Asian Markets

Early on Thursday, investors were waiting for U.S. personal consumption expenditures price index data to provide hints about the Federal Reserve’s likely interest rate path. This resulted in lower trading on Asian markets.

Gold Prices

Gold fell slightly on Monday as investors’ attention turned to U.S. inflation data that is scheduled for release this week, which may have an impact on when the Federal Reserve will decrease interest rates.

Spot gold increased by 0.5% to $2,025.91 an ounce. The price of US gold futures fell 0.6 percent to $2,036.60.

Dollar

As investors braced themselves for the release of US and European inflation statistics on Thursday, the dollar surged against the euro and yen on Wednesday. Additionally, the direction of the market may be affected by month-end portfolio rebalancing.

Bitcoin saw a surge of over two years, owing to robust market liquidity.

Crude

Growing US crude stocks added additional pressure, and US crude oil futures ended the day lower on Wednesday. The Federal Reserve maintained its determination to postpone lowering interest rates for the foreseeable future.

At $83.68 per barrel, Brent crude futures ended the day 3 cents higher, or 0.04 percent higher. US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) futures ended the day at $78.54, down 33 cents, or 0.42 percent. Prior to this, both benchmarks had dropped $1 in trading.

US crude stockpiles increased.

News updates 

Disney and RIL launch a joint venture worth Rs 70,352 crore to combine streaming and TV assets in India.

By striking a profitable deal to join The Walt Disney Company as a senior partner in a joint venture, Reliance Industries Ltd. has risen to the top of one of the media and entertainment sectors with the fastest rate of growth in the world.

The joint venture that results from the merging of Viacom18 and Disney’s India unit Star India would be owned by RIL, both directly and through its unit Viacom18.

Star India was originally asking for more over $8 billion; as a result, the deal values the company at roughly $3.5 billion. Additionally, it represents about 5% of Star’s $15 billion India valuation in 2018, the year the company was sold from Rupert Murdoch to Walt Disney. This is further evidence of Reliance’s renowned ability to close deals, as it was able to wipe out a massive debt mountain during the height of the pandemic by selling small stakes in Jio and its retail businesses to a wide range of international brands.

Sebi issued a confirmation order on Brightcom Group and recommends that ED look into the matter more.

The directives issued to 20 out of the 25 noticees in the Brightcom Group case have been verified by the market regulator.

After looking into a preferential issue of shares and warrants for which some allottees had only made partial payments, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) issued an interim decision on August 22, 2023. Sebi released a confirming order on February 28.

Ashwani Bhatia, a Whole-time Member of Sebi, has also recommended in the confirmatory order that the order be forwarded to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for the agency’s review, given that some of the transactions involved foreign exchange and could have involved breaking laws related to dealing in foreign exchanges.

US economic growth in the fourth quarter was lowered down marginally.

The US economy expanded at a healthy rate in the fourth quarter because to robust consumer spending, the government announced on Wednesday. However, the economy seems to have slowed down a bit in the first few months of the year.

In its second estimate of fourth-quarter GDP growth, the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Economic Analysis stated that the gross domestic product grew at an annualised rate of 3.2 percent last quarter, which was revised slightly down from the previously reported 3.3 percent pace.

The economy expanded during the July–September quarter at a rate of 4.9 percent. It grew by 2.5 percent in 2023, up from 1.9 percent in 2022, and is now over the 1.8 percent non-inflationary growth rate that is considered by Federal Reserve policymakers.
