Global Markets updates

GIFT Nifty

The GIFT Nifty has lost 98 points, or 0.43 percent, indicating a weak start for India’s broader index. The Nifty futures were trading near the 22,510 level.

US Market

The Dow and S&P 500 fell on Monday, weighed down by investor concerns about the timing of the Federal Reserve’s interest rate cuts after stronger-than-expected manufacturing data pushed Treasury yields higher.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 240.52 points, or 0.60 percent, to 39,566.85, the S&P 500 fell 10.58 points, or 0.20 percent, to 5,243.77, and the Nasdaq Composite rose 17.37 points, or 0.11 percent, to 16,396.83.

Asian Market

Asian markets were trading with marginal gains in early trade on Tuesday, with the Nikkei up 0.3 percent.

Dollar

The U.S. manufacturing sector expanded in March for the first time since September 2022, according to data, which caused the dollar to rise on Monday. In the meantime, the yen remained below 152 per dollar, raising concerns among traders about potential intervention.

Gold Prices

On Monday, gold prices reached new all-time highs, but Wall Street stocks declined from almost all-time highs as expectations that the Federal Reserve would soon lower interest rates faded due to the robust US economy.

Crude Oil

As OPEC+ cuts and attacks on Russian refineries tighten global supplies, crude prices edged up about 1% to a five-month high on Monday. This was due to expectations that oil demand would rise following the release of positive economic news from the US and China.

US manufacturing experienced a significant growth in March, marking the first time in 1-1/2 years, according to the Institute for Supply Management. The manufacturing PMI increased to 50.3, the highest since September 2022, marking the first reading above 50 since February. This rebound ended 16 consecutive months of contraction in manufacturing, which accounts for 10.4% of the economy.
