RBI may up inflation forecast in next MPC meeting; rate hike on cards: Sources

Sources said the MPC would review the inflation scenario in the next meeting. The MPC had not changed inflation projections in an off-cycle meeting earlier this month.

The RBI will manage rupee, as always

According to the SGX Nifty and Global Trend, the Indian market will open lower. The US stock market was trading lower. The key reason given by investors and experts for the market’s weakness is the Federal Reserve’s policy adjustment. The Fed warned early in 2022 that it was shifting to tighter monetary policy in an attempt to tamp down soaring inflation, signalling a substantial shift in the investing climate.
Indian markets are seeing turbulent swings as investors continue to be concerned about rising interest rates, fears about slowing economic growth, and additional tightening measures in China.
In the previous seven trading sessions, the Nifty has fallen by 6.5 percent. Even attitudes were shaky, as foreign investors dumped $1.82 billion in Indian shares so far this month. In these situations, investors should exercise caution and take advantage of any declines in fundamentally sound companies.
Immediate support and resistance for Nifty are 16,000 and 16,500 respectively. Immediate support and resistance for Bank Nifty are 34000 and 35,000 respectively.
Indian rupee opened 23 paise lower at 77.46 per dollar on Thursday against Wednesday’s close of 77.23.
Market at pre-open: Benchmark indices are trading lower in the pre-opening session with Nifty below 16000.
At 09:04 IST, the Sensex was down 566.29 points or 1.05% at 53522.10, and the Nifty was down 211.90 points or 1.31% at 15955.20.
Indian markets are likely to open on a negative note today tracking weak global cues. US inflation data moderated but topped expectations, signalling persistent price pressures and did little to ease investor worries over the outlook for interest rates and economy.
US markets ended lower yesterday tracking losses in technology stocks amid release of macroeconomic data.
