Global Markets updates

GIFT Nifty

The GIFT Nifty, which gained 146 points, or 0.67 percent, suggests that the Indian stock market is off to a great start. The 22,071 mark was the focal point of the Nifty futures trade.

US Market

Following the Federal Reserve’s decision to maintain borrowing costs steady and to bolster predictions that rates may be lowered as many as three times this year, Wall Street’s major stock indexes ended the day higher on Wednesday.

In its policy statement, the Fed maintained its “elevated” view of inflation, increased its forecasts for economic growth, and decreased its predictions for the unemployment rate from its December estimates.

The S&P 500 gained 46.11 points, or 0.89 percent, to 5,224.62, the Nasdaq Composite gained 202.62 points, or 1.25 percent, to 16,369.41, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average increased by 401.37 points, or 1.03 percent, to 39,512.13.

Asian Market

The Federal Reserve reaffirmed its prediction for three rate decreases while retaining the Federal Funds rate at 5.25–5.5 percent, which caused the Nikkei to reach a new all-time high as Asian markets rose.

 Dollar

On Wednesday, the dollar strengthened for the sixth straight session as investors stood pat in anticipation of what might be a pivotal Federal Reserve meeting later in the day, while the stock and bond markets saw little movement.

Gold Prices

As traders awaited Chair Jerome Powell’s comments later in the day and the Federal Reserve’s interest rate signalling at the conclusion of the U.S. central bank meeting, gold remained mostly unchanged on Wednesday.

Crude Oil

Following their multi-month highs in the previous session, oil prices declined on Wednesday as investors prepared for the US Federal Reserve’s interest rate policy announcement later in the day.

News Updates

Key lending rate is maintained by the US Fed

Despite a recent spike in inflation, Federal Reserve officials continued to project three quarter-point rate reduction this year but fewer cuts than before in 2025.

For the fifth consecutive meeting, officials unanimously agreed to maintain the benchmark federal funds rate in the range of 5.25 to 5.5 percent, the highest since 2001. For the first time since March 2020, policymakers indicated they were still on course to lower rates this year. However, based on the median projection, they now only envision three rate reductions in 2025, down from four in December.

PSBs are instructed by NCLAT not to use force against IL&FS or its board.

Eleven public sector lenders have been ordered by the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) to refrain from using coercive measures against IL&FS and its group entities until the tribunal’s next hearing on May 14. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and the banks were also served with letters by a two-member NCLAT panel led by Chairperson Justice Ashok Bhushan, requiring them to submit a response.
