V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services:
The market lacks clear direction and this trend can be expected to continue in the context of high uncertainty in the global economy. There are no clear indicators yet on whether the US economy will slip into recession and how serious the ongoing global growth slowdown will be. Elevated crude and high inflation will continue to drag on markets.
The recent correction has made valuations fair but not yet attractive enough for aggressive buying. Leading financials continue to be safe buys. Moderation in commodity prices and improvement in chip availability bode well for autos.
Market resilience in July indicates that a close above Nifty 16000 can lead to a near-term rally. Financials, autos and IT have the potential to drive such a probable rally.

Govt to stick to 6.4% fiscal deficit target
The Centre is committed to stick to the fiscal deficit target of 6.4 percent despite strong global headwinds, reports citing government sources said on July 4. The Ministry of Finance is confident of achieving the target set at the start of this fiscal, as the country’s macroeconomic fundamentals are strong, the sources told news agency PTI.
Officials who are privy to the development reiterated government’s commitment to the 6.4 percent fiscal deficit target while speaking to wire agency ANI, but added that the soaring crude oil prices will push India’s import bills. The current account deficit will be higher if the crude oil prices surge further, they underlined.

Trade deficit shoots up 62% YoY to $25.6 billion in June
India’s merchandise trade deficit rose to $25.6 billion in June 2022, 62 percent higher than June 2021 as a continuing global commodity supercycle kept the prices of key energy and metal imports high.
Data released by the Commerce and Industry Ministry on Monday showed that while exports in June rose by 16.8 percent to $37.9 billion, imports shot up by 51 percent to $63.5 billion. The resultant $25.6 billion worth of trade deficit – the difference between total exports and imports – has given the Commerce Department a new headache, an official said.
