*The Indian and global market story
The Indian market (Nifty Fut/India-50)closed around 10465 on Thursday,
jumped by almost 0.38% on earnings optimism and mixed global cues as
Trump blinks of both Syrian war as well as US-China trade war. But a
surging crude oil hovering around $67 may have also dragged the Indian
market sentiment as the country imports almost 80% of its oil
requirement. Hawkish FOMC minutes released on Wednesday may be also not
good for the Indian market as the probability of another Fed hike
increases to almost 85% in June.
Nifty Fut-I made an opening session low of around 10398 and late day
high of 10479 after reports that the government has not asked OMC to not
hike retail prices of petrol and diesel and some fall in Indian bond
yields. Indian 10Y Bond Yield slipped to 7.443% from 7.536% on hopes of
a softer core CPI to be released after the market hours.
All focus of the Indian market was on macro data (CPI/IIP) which came
mixed. Headline CPI for March edged down to 4.28% from 4.44% in February
and lower than the estimate of 4.20% on account of fall in food
inflation (vegetables-seasonal factor). But core CPI edged up to 5.3%
from 5.1%, looks quite sticky for the last few months hovering much
above the median RBI target of 4%.
As a reminder, RBI is quite concerned about adverse effect of higher
oil, proposed MSP hike on agri products, fiscal slippages and higher
bond yields on inflation and thus RBI is expected to be on the sideline
in July also, but RBI may take hawkish tone as core CPI is consistently
printing above the 5% red line.
IIP for February edged down to 7.1% from 7.4% in January against an
estimate of 7%, while manufacturing output also edged up to 8.7% from 8.6%.
On Thursday, Nifty was helped by Infy, TCS (earnings optimism due to
cross-currency tailwinds), HDFC, HCL Tech, HDFC Bank, Axis Bank, ICICI
Bank, Tech-M, Kotak Bank, L&T and others by around 75 points, while it
was dragged by ITC, VEDL, Maruti, SBI, RIL, Bharti Airtel, Tata Steel,
Sun Pharma, Ultratech Cement, DRL and others by almost 34 points altogether.
Overall, on Friday Indian market was helped by Private Banks,
financials, techs, while dragged by mixed automakers, FMCG, metals
(China concern), pharma, reality, consumption, energies, and infra
stocks to some extent.
*Global cues were mixed during Indian market hours on Thursday:*
US stock future (SPX-500) was up by 0.57% and European stocks were up by
0.41% as the markets await Trump's decision on military action against
Syria amid ongoing suspense. Later, Trump tweeted on early US morning
that he "never said when an attack on Syria would take place. Could be
very soon or not so soon at all." Risk-on trade got a boost on the
reduced probability of an imminent attack on Syria by the US.
Elsewhere, UK Prime Minister May called for an emergency Cabinet meeting
to discuss how the UK will respond to the Syrian government's suspected
chemical attacks on its own people. French President Macron said a
decision on how to respond to the Syrian chemical attacks will come when
France and its allies "find it the most useful and efficient."
Crude oil prices were just below Wednesday's 3-1/3 year high on rising
tensions in the Middle East. Along with the Syrian situation, Saudi
Arabia intercepted a ballistic missile fired at Riyadh Wednesday and
shot down 2 drones in another part of the country as Yemeni rebels step
up their attacks.
A rally in European airline stocks was helping to lift the overall
market sentiment on increased M&A activity after British Airways owner
IAG said it could make a bid for Norwegian Airlines. Asian stocks closed
mostly lower: Japan -0.12%, Hong Kong -0.22%, China -0.87%, Taiwan
-0.17%, Australia -0.23%, Singapore -0.32%, South Korea +0.09%, India
+0.47%. Thus Indian market outperformed its Asian peers on Thursday.
Asian equity markets traded mixed as sentiment settled down from the
bullishness seen from Chinese President Xi’s conciliatory tone on
Tuesday which resulted to a solid performance on Wall St, while
attention turned to the geopolitical climate with a possible
announcement on Syria said to be imminent.
ASX 200 failed to sustain mild opening gains as softer Australian
consumer sentiment data and weaker than expected Chinese inflation
figures clouded the upside seen in commodity-related sectors. Energies
helped on higher oil.
Nikkei 225 was also lackluster with J Front the worst off amongst the
retailers on expectations of weaker profits this year, while SoftBank
outperformed on M&A hopes after reports its unit Sprint and T-Mobile
renewed merger talks.
Hang Seng and Shanghai were initially choppy as participants digested
the miss on Chinese CPI and PPI data, although stocks gradually found
some comfort from efforts by PBOC Governor to build upon the momentum
from President Xi at the Boao forum in which the PBOC Governor talked
about opening up and announced to increase stock connect quotas.
Hong-Kong was also under pressure on the plunge in HKD, which prompted
the central bank authority to intervene to defend the peg, first time
European Equities began the day trading slightly lower with the risk-on
sentiment seen in yesterday’s trade not being echoed early on. This
comes to fruition despite the revelations from Chinese President Xi
mentioning a preference to implement auto tariff cuts as soon as
possible (this relating to a possible reduction on import taxes on autos
by half from 25% currently). Market sentiment was largely being guided
by increased tensions in Syria amid potentially imminent military action
by the US. This follows on from overnight news of increased air traffic
over Syrian airspace and condemnation from the international community.
