Global Markets updates

GIFT Nifty

The GIFT Nifty, which gained 52.50 points, or 0.24 percent, suggests that the Indian index as a whole is off to a good start. The 22,165 mark was the focal point of the Nifty futures trade.

US Markets

Friday saw a sharp loss in US stocks, with the Nasdaq leading the way, as expectations for an impending interest rate decrease by the Federal Reserve were dashed by a hotter-than-expected producer prices report.

According to a Labour Department study, producer prices rose more than anticipated in January, stoking concerns that inflation was beginning to rise following several months of decline. All three indexes had a weekly decrease following five weeks of advances.

The Nasdaq Composite dropped 132.38 points, or 0.83 percent, to 15,775.65, while the S&P 500 lost 24.18 points, or 0.49 percent, to finish at 5,005.15 points. To reach 38,623.64, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 149.48 points, or 0.39 percent.

Asian Markets

Although investors are anticipating China markets return from holiday with a bounce in their step, Asian equities started the day slowly on Monday as hopes for early rate cuts around the world faded.

The recent spike in IT stocks is expected to be put to the test on Wednesday when AI diva Nvidia releases its results. The US markets were closed on Wednesday.

After bouncing 2 percent last week, MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific equities outside of Japan increased by 0.2 percent.

After rising more than 4% the previous week to come up just short of its record high, Japan’s Nikkei was flat.

Dollar

Concerns about the health of the US economy prompted the dollar’s slide on Friday, as expectations that the Federal Reserve would hold off on raising interest rates until at least the middle of the year were heightened by higher-than-expected producer prices.

The dollar index, which measures the value of the US dollar relative to six major currencies, was headed for rises for a fifth consecutive week. It was up by 0.12 percent for the week, and it just increased by 0.01 percent to 104.26.

Crude

The International Energy Agency had predicted a slowdown in demand, but geopolitical concerns in the Middle East more than negated this estimate, driving up oil prices on Friday.

At $83.47 per barrel, Brent crude futures finished the day up 61 cents, or 0.74 percent. With the adjacent March contract expiring on Tuesday, US West Texas Intermediate crude finished $1.16, or 1.49 percent, higher at $79.19. At $78.46, the April contract increased by 87 cents.

Brent increased by more over 1% on the week, while the US benchmark increased by roughly 3%.

News Updates

Rates are held at 16% by the Russian central bank following months of tightening.

Still struggling with persistent inflation pressure, Russia’s central bank decided to leave borrowing prices constant on Friday, maintaining its key interest rate at 16 percent following five consecutive rate hikes since last summer.

With the rouble plunging below 100 to the dollar and the Kremlin demanding tighter monetary policy, the central bank has hiked rates by 850 basis points since July. However, it has recently suggested a more dovish stance.

The bank cautioned that despite their lowering from autumn peaks, inflationary pressures remained significant and stated that in order to bring inflation down to its 4 percent objective this year, “tight monetary conditions…for a long period” would be necessary.

US consumer confidence remained stable in February.

A study released on Friday revealed that while one-year inflation predictions increased, US consumer mood remained mostly unchanged in February.

This month’s preliminary estimate for the University of Michigan’s total consumer confidence index was 79.6, up from 79.0 in January. Reuters polled economists, who predicted a preliminary result of 80.0.

One-year inflation forecasts as measured by the survey increased slightly from 2.9 percent in January to 3.0% this month. Expectations for near-term inflation are in the range of 2.3–3.0 percent observed in the two years preceding the Covid-19 epidemic.

For the third consecutive month, the five-year inflation forecast from the survey remained at 2.9%.

Forex reserves in India drop from a one-month high

Data released by the central bank on Friday revealed that India’s foreign exchange reserves ended a two-week upward trend and were $617.23 billion as of February 9, down from a one-month peak.

After increasing by a total of $6.36 billion over the previous two weeks, the reserves saw their biggest decline in a month during the reporting week, falling by $5.27 billion.
