Global Markets updates

GIFT Nifty

With a gain of 117 points, or 0.52 percent, the GIFT Nifty trends suggest that the wider index in India is off to a good start. The 22,672.50 level was the trading range for the Nifty futures.

US Market

US stocks closed higher on Thursday, with tech-related momentum stocks leading the charge. Fresh economic data rekindled hopes that inflation remains in a cooling trend. The tech-heavy Nasdaq had a decisive edge, while the S&P 500 closed in positive territory. The Producer Prices index (PPI) came in softer than expected, supporting the narrative that price growth is still cooling. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 2.43 points, the S&P 500 gained 38.42 points, and the Nasdaq Composite added 271.84 points.

Asian Market

Following a selloff driven by inflation in the previous session, Asian markets were trading mixed on Friday. Investors were evaluating economic data from South Korea and Singapore while they awaited China trade data.



Crude

Due to increased Middle East tensions and Iran’s threat to retaliate for what it believes to be an Israeli airstrike on its embassy in Syria, oil prices increased in early trading on Friday. This could lead to supply disruptions from the oil-producing region.



News Updates

US weekly jobless claims increase while continuing claims fall more than anticipated.

The number of Americans filing new unemployment benefits claims decreased more than anticipated last week, indicating a tight labour market. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits fell 11,000 to a seasonally adjusted 211,000 for the week ended April 6, compared to economists’ predictions of 215,000 claims. However, claims are often erratic due to the unpredictable dates of Easter, Passover, and public school spring breaks. The Federal Reserve has raised interest rates by 525 basis points since March 2022 to control inflation, but the labour market remains strong, with job growth picking up and inflation being maintained due to higher service costs.

ECB maintains record-high rates and announces a forthcoming cut

The European Central Bank (ECB) has maintained interest rates at a record-high 4%, expressing optimism for a first rate cut in June if inflation declines. The key deposit rate has frozen borrowing costs for the fifth time in a row. The ECB has been hiking rates to counter price increases, but calls for rate reduction are increasing. Inflation in the eurozone decreased more than anticipated in March to 2.4%, near the ECB’s two percent target.

ADB increases its prediction for India’s GDP growth in FY25 to 7% due to strong investment and consumer demand.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) raised India’s GDP growth estimate for the current fiscal year from 6.7% to 7%, citing strong demand for investments and a gradual improvement in consumer demand. However, the growth estimate for 2024-25 is less than the 7.6% predicted for the 2022-2023 fiscal year. The ADB predicted a 6.7% growth in the Indian economy in December 2022-2025.

US consumer prices increased in March more than anticipated.

U.S. consumer prices rose more than expected in March due to housing and petrol price increases, raising concerns about the Federal Reserve’s decision to lower interest rates in June. The Bureau of Labour Statistics reported a 0.4% increase in the consumer price index last month, following a 3.2% increase in February. The CPI grew by 3.5% in the year ending in March.
