Global Market Update

GIFT Nifty

The GIFT Nifty experienced a 6 point loss after closing 40 points higher on August 28, with futures at 19,366 points, indicating a slightly negative start for the broader index.

US Markets

Stock futures were near flat on Monday night as investors viewed the final days of a challenging August for the market.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 15 points, or 0.04%, while S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures wavered near the flat line.

The Dow finished more than 200 points higher, a gain of about 0.6 percent.

3M helped the blue-chip average rally more than 5% a day after Bloomberg News cited sources saying the conglomerate was ready to settle lawsuits alleged some of its earplugs were faulty.

However, Monday’s leg up can be seen as a respite from a tough month for stocks, with just three sessions left in August’s trading month.

The Dow is on pace to finish 2.8% lower, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq are poised for losses of 3.4% and 4.5%, respectively.

Investors will watch for earnings from companies like Best Buy and Nio before the bell, followed by HP after the close.

European shares rose in the final trading week of August, with Germany’s DAX 30 up 1%, France’s CAC 40 up 1.4%, and the Italian FTSE MIB up 1.3%.

Markets were closed in the UK for a public holiday.

Investors reflected on the Kansas City Federal Reserve’s annual retreat, where Fed Chair Jerome Powell said that inflation remains too high and the Fed is ready to continue hiking interest rates to tame persistently high prices.

He said the Fed is prepared to raise rates further if appropriate and intends to hold policy at a restrictive level until it is confident that inflation is moving sustainably down toward its objective.

China halved stamp duty on stock trading to boost struggling markets. Brent crude rose by 0.8% to $85.13 a barrel, breaking above the $85 mark. US West Texas Intermediate crude gained 0.6% to $80.28. The focus is on China’s actions to support its economy, Tropical Storm Idalia heading for Florida, and whether Brent can regain momentum on a break above $85. Idalia is intensifying as it approaches Cuba.

Dollar Index

The Dollar index closed 0.02 percent lower in futures at 104.05, while the dollar’s value was near Rs 83.09.

Gold Prices

Gold prices rose on Monday due to a retreat in the dollar and bond yields. Investors are awaiting US economic data this week for more insight on interest rate outlook. Spot gold rose 0.4% to $1,921.86 per ounce, while US gold futures gained 0.6% to $1,952. The benchmark 10-year Treasury yields remain below their recent peak.
