Mapping the World Economy: Fed to take the lead in moving towards interest rate reductions

The upcoming year is expected to be the year of interest rate cuts, with the Federal Reserve taking the lead in favour of wealthier nations.

Traders increased their wagers on the Fed’s aggressive plan to reduce borrowing costs this year following news that producer prices continued to decline in December. Despite this, there will be difficulties in controlling inflation because a gauge of consumer prices increased by the greatest in three months.

While similar measures declined in Chile and Norway in December, Argentina’s inflation rate exceeded 200% for the full year. While global inflation is largely declining, concerns about a resurgence of cost pressures are being heightened by rising transportation costs and an increase in oil prices.

In the Mahanadi basin block, ONGC discovers gas twice in a row.

State-owned Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) has produced two large back-to-back natural gas discoveries in a Mahanadi basin deepwater block in the Bay of Bengal as its calculated game plan of pushing into high-risk deep-water exploration starts producing results.

According to two people with firsthand knowledge of the development, the company made the finds in the block MN-DWHP-2018/1, which it had won in the open acreage licencing policy’s third round of auction in 2019. The fact that the finds were uncovered in an area that was previously designated as “no-go” due to national security concerns is noteworthy.

According to them, during the first testing, the first discovery, known as Uktal, flowed more than 3 lakh cubic metres of gas a day at a water depth of 714 metres. The other find, they added, is at a water depth of 1,110 metres.The Directorate General of Hydrocarbons (DGH), an upstream regulator, has been informed of the finds by ONGC, and the company is currently evaluating the size of the pool and its commercial potential.

Nifty might be nearing the end of its current surge | These 3 stocks could provide a short-term profit of 10–25%

Indian markets reached a record high just one week into 2024, with the Nifty index reaching a lifetime high of 21,928, marking a fresh breakout. The index surpassed the 21,500 support level and tested nearly 22,000 in futures trading, with the surge potentially continuing to reach 22,200–22,400 the following week. However, the long-short ratio of FII index futures has dropped from 70 percent in the previous week to 66%, indicating potential upside for the Nifty. This could be the end of the rally, with significant profit-taking. It is recommended that traders exercise caution when holding long positions and have a rigorous stop loss on the downside when investing in individual stocks, especially smallcap companies. A break of 21,500 is required to validate the temporary peak.

Nifty IT shining: Invest in these two IT firms to generate substantial rewards

Nifty has broken above the trading range of the previous eight sessions, where it was consolidating between 21,440 and 21,800, on the daily charts. Friday, January 12, 2024 saw giants TCS and Infosys post significant gains, contributing to the Nifty’s record highs. Reliance Industries also backed the surge since it has been trading at record highs for the past three trading sessions. Additionally, a strong sector rotation is evident, with several sectors contributing to the upward trend.

Based on Elliott wave theory, the current state of prices is wave iii of (v). Hence, it is advisable to consider declines as buying opportunities, unless there is any closing below the support level of 21,580 (what to do then, not buy?). A close over the 22,000 psychological barrier will prolong the short-term uptrend.

To put it briefly, the Nifty has recently broken out of the flag formation and could continue to rise towards levels of 22,118. As long as it is over 21,580, buying on dips can be a wise approach.

82 smallcaps rise 10–39% as the historic rally persists.

The market experienced a strong recovery on the final day of the week as investors celebrated the results from Infosys and TCS, the two largest IT companies, after the market began the week on a negative note and remained in consolidation for the following three days.

BSE Sensex gained 542.3 points, or 0.75 percent, to conclude at 72,568.45 on the week, while Nifty50 gained 183.7 points, or 0.84 percent, to close at 21,894.50. The Sensex and Nifty reached new all-time highs of 72,720.96 and 21,928.25, respectively, on January 12.

The BSE-Largecap, BSE-Midcap, and BSE-Smallcap broad indices all reached new all-time highs this week, rising by 0.7%, 0.45%, and 1.5%, respectively.

Sebi mulls framework allowing customers to voluntarily block trading accounts
