“The mother market US has turned distinctly weak with Nasdaq, S&P 500 and Dow at 1-year lows. European markets are moving in tandem with US markets. Relatively India is doing better thanks to the consistent buying by DIIs and retail investors. Retail investors should not rush in to buy aggressively now since the market is not at buyable valuations. Since there is a risk off environment globally, FIIs are likely to sell at every bounce in the market. High-quality stocks like leading financials may be bought in small quantities. Rupee depreciation, which may continue, will impart resilience to IT stocks,” said V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.

Based on the SGX Nifty and Global Trend, the Indian market is expected to open lower. Wall Street plunged to its lowest level in more than a year on Monday, as markets were already hit by rising interest rates. Following the decline in global stocks, Indian equity indexes may face some pressure. Asian markets are trading down on expectations of an economic downturn later this year as a result of growing inflation, higher interest rates, and the continued harsh COVID-19 lockdown restrictions in Shanghai. At current levels, the IT sector appears positive as a drop in the rupee might assist firms counter some of the cost and growth challenges. Positive geopolitical developments, as well as stronger-than-expected key macroeconomic data this week, might help turn the tide and entice investors to return to risk assets.
