Share Market News Today | Sensex, Nifty, Share Prices Highlights: Indian share market remained subdued on weekly F&O expiry, weighed by weak global sentiment as the US Fed raised interest rates by another 75 basis points. Key indices NSE Nifty 50 was at 18051 and BSE Sensex fell 70 pots to trade at 60836. Broader markets, however, advanced as Nifty MidCap 100 and Nifty SmallCap 100 indices climbed up to 0.34% and 0.29%, respectively. All sectors were fluctuating between gains and losses. Sectorally, Nifty PSU Bank, Nifty Bank, Nifty Realty, and Nifty Private Bank led the gains, while Nifty IT, Nifty Auto, and Nifty Consumer Durables capped it.

The impromptu meeting by the RBI is going to be more about inflation than interest rates, according to Heena Naik, Research Analyst – Currency, Angel One. “The rate-setting panel has to send out a letter to the government mentioning the reasons with regards to missing out on its inflation target. They also have to mention the counter-actions that it prepares to undertake to bring the inflation back in its targetted zone,” she said. “The markets, therefore, are not expecting any rate action but rather talks on inflation which could influence the Indian Rupee accordingly,” Naik added.

Oil futures fell early on Thursday as the dollar firmed on the Federal Reserve's hawkish stance, but concerns over looming supply risks kept a floor under prices.

The benchmarks settled up more than $1 on Wednesday, aided by another drop in U.S. oil inventories, even as the Fed boosted interest rates by 75 basis points and Chair Jerome Powell said it was premature to think about pausing rate increases.

Large-cap banks, capital goods, premium auto segment stocks can be bought on declines

The Fed commentary after the expected 75bp rate hike, particularly Jay Powell’s remark that the terminal rate is likely to be higher than thought earlier, disappointed markets which resulted in a sell off in US markets. But it is important to note that when asked about moderating rate hikes he said, “that time is coming and it may come as soon as the next meeting or the one after that.” So, it is possible that the markets can again bounce back since the economy continues to be strong and unemployment is at record lows indicating that a recession is not imminent. 
India’s outperformance is likely to continue since leading indicators like credit growth, capital expenditure and auto sales point to robust economic recovery. FPI buying of Rs 12610 crores during the last 5 trading sessions can provide support to the market at lower levels. Large-cap banks, capital goods and the premium auto segment can be bought on declines.”-VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

Domestic equities likely to see downward trend in early trades

“Going by the global cues, domestic equities are likely to see a downward trend in early trades Thursday, after the US Federal Reserve overnight hiked interest rate on expected lines by 75 bps but signalled that its tightening campaign is not over yet. However, investors can heave a sigh of relief after the Fed hinted at a slower pace of rate increases going ahead. For local investors, focus will immediately shift to the RBI MPC's unscheduled meeting later today and try to gauge from its explanation to the government on the higher inflation front. Inflation has been consistently above the MPC’s 2-6% target band for three consecutive quarters.”-Prashanth Tapse – Research Analyst, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities

Will bears drag Nifty below 18000? Bikaji Foods, Medanta IPO opens; key things to know before market opens

Bears are likely to maintain control over Dalal Street on Thursday amid weak global cues, following US Fed’s 75 bps rate hike decision. Investors will remain cautious ahead of RBI off-cycle MPC meeting. According to analysts, global and domestic developments such as FOMC, RBI MPC meetings will dictate the near-term trend in markets. “On daily charts, the Nifty has formed a small bearish candle with double top formation on intraday charts.

US Fed delivers another 75 bps rate hike

The Federal Reserve pumped up its benchmark interest rate Wednesday by three-quarters of a point for a fourth straight time but hinted that it could soon reduce the size of its rate hikes. The Fed’s move raised its key short-term rate to a range of 3.75% to 4%, its highest level in 15 years. It was the central bank’s sixth rate hike this year — a streak that has made mortgages and other consumer and business loans increasingly expensive and heightened the risk of a recession. The Fed’s statement Wednesday was released after its latest policy meeting.
