  • Dalal Street Action | CPI inflation, FOMC minutes, FII Flow among 10 key factors to watch

The market corrected for the third consecutive week ending August 11, trading within the previous week’s long range. The RBI’s decision to raise its full-year inflation projection has increased the likelihood of additional momentum in the rate-cut trajectory extending into FY25. The announcement of a 10% incremental Cash Reserve Ratio for banks and lackluster global cues have exerted downward pressure on market sentiment. The market will react to industrial production numbers for June, with consolidation expected to continue with focus on monthly CPI and WPI inflation numbers and FOMC minutes. The BSE Sensex dropped 365 points to 65,322, while the Nifty50 declined 114 points to 19,428, dented by banking & financial services and FMCG stocks. Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research at Motilal Oswal Financial Services, expects the market to consolidate in the range, trading cautiously ahead of India’s inflation data.

  • US Markets

    Stock futures on Wall Street gained slightly on Sunday evening, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures up 0.2% and 0.3%, respectively.

    This comes after stocks struggled to sustain their rally in late summer, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite falling 0.31 and 1.90% respectively.

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.62 percent for its fourth positive week in five.

    The upcoming week could be driven by US consumer earnings reports from Home Depot, Target, and Walmart, as well as retail sales data from July.

    The earnings reports come after mixed inflation reports last week, showing price increases have eased from their post-pandemic peak but still above the Federal Reserve’s 2% target.

  • European Markets

    European markets closed lower on Friday due to earnings and US inflation data.

    The Stoxx 600 index ended the session down 1.1 percent, with tech stocks leading losses, while autos and mining stocks fell 1.8 and 1.7 percent, respectively.

    FTSE closed 1.24 percent lower and DAX closed 1.03 percent lower.

The IEA estimated that global oil demand reached a record 103 million barrels per day in June and could reach another peak this month. Saudi Arabia and Russia’s output cuts set the stage for a sharp decline in inventories, which could drive oil prices even higher.

    Dollar index traded 0.15 percent higher in futures at 102.96, while one dollar’s value hovered near Rs 82.90.
