Deepak Jasani, Head of Retail Research, HDFC Securities:
Indian markets could open mildly lower in line with mixed Asian markets today and lower US markets on Friday. US stocks fell sharply Friday, leaving major indexes with weekly losses, after better-than-expected May payrolls data reinforced expectations for a series of interest-rate rises by the Federal Reserve in coming months. For the week, the S&P 500 fell 1.2% while the Nasdaq declined 0.98% and the Dow lost 0.94% after all three indexes had risen sharply the week before.

Nifty gave up the early gains on June 3 and ended in the negative after a day of gains. At close Nifty was down 0.26% or 43.7 points at 16584.3. FPIs seem to have resumed selling activity in Indian markets. After a weekly gain of 1.4%, Nifty has formed a Dark cloud cover formation on daily charts. 16794 on the Nifty will have to be breached for further upmoves to happen. On downmoves 16443 is an important support.

RBI Monetary Policy | Experts predict another rate hike as inflation continues to rise

With inflation showing no signs of abatement, the Reserve Bank is likely to increase the benchmark lending rate in quick succession in its forthcoming monetary policy review on Wednesday, a hint for which has already been given by Governor Shaktikanta Das, opined experts.

There are speculations that the central bank may go for at least 35 basis points (bps) hike over and above the 40 bps hike effected last month after an off-cycle Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meeting. Experts are expecting more hikes in repo rate in the coming months.

The Caixin services purchasing managers’ index (PMI) rose to 41.4 in May from 36.2 in April, edging up slightly as authorities began to roll back some of the strict restrictions that have paralysed the financial city of Shanghai and roiled global supply chains.

US unemployment news: American employers added 390,000 jobs last month, the government reported Friday, a sign of a slowdown in hiring but still a better-than-expected result amid a shortage of workers. The jobless rate held steady at 3.6 percent for the third consecutive month, just a tenth of a point above the pre-pandemic level in February 2020, the Labor Department said.

The labor force participation rate edged up very slightly to 62.3 percent, a sign more workers could be coming off the sidelines to rejoin the labor force, which would ease pressure on wages.
