Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services:

Negative global cues and FIIs turning heavy sellers, impacted investor’s sentiments on the last day of the week. US Fed’s aggressive stance has increased recessionary fears on global front and created nervousness on domestic markets as well. 

Nifty was showing signs of weakness from its opening and broke its crucial support of 17,400 levels. India VIX rose sharply by 9.2% to 20.5 levels, indicating that volatility may remain high going forward. 

India would continue to take cues from global front as well as upcoming RBI meeting which is also expected to hike interest rates in line with US Federal Reserve.  

Nifty opened gap down and witnessed another day of intense selling to close near day’s low. All sectorial indices, including broader market under performed with Realty, PSU Bank down by more than 3%.

Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:

A rise in the US 10-year bond yield and a strong dollar index influenced FIIs to flee emerging markets. A fall in liquidity in the banking system, a weak currency and a current premium valuation have set the market outlook bearish for the near term. 

With aggressive monetary policy action by central banks, the global growth engines are in a slowdown mode, whereas India is currently in a better position with a pickup in credit growth and an uptick in tax collection. 

The current volatility might persist for a while. Investors are advised to wait and watch until the dust settles.

Divam Sharma, smallcase manager & Co founder, Green Portfolio:

The monetary policy will continue to diverge for the RBI. Inflation prints in the US and EU are running at 400% above their target, whereas in India the divergence is only 16% above our upper band. RBI will give relatively more priority to upholding economic growth instead of solely focusing on the price levels because the RBI can afford to. We expect a 40-50bps increase in the policy rates in the coming meeting.

Gaurang Somaiya, Forex & Bullion Analyst, Motilal Oswal Financial Services:

Rupee fell to fresh all-time lows against the US dollar after the Fed raised rates earlier this week. Most of the currencies are under pressure as the dollar continues to strengthen. 

Volatility in Yen remained elevated after the Bank of Japan intervened to curb sharp depreciation. Bank of England released its policy statement and raised rates by 50bps. 

Focus will be on the preliminary manufacturing PMI number that will be released from the US, EZ and UK. We expect the USDINR(Spot) to trade sideways and quote in the range of 80.40 and 81.20.
