Increase gold exposure, buy on dips

Gold price touched two-week highs on 1st December trading at $1795/oz while on the MCX gold futures gained by around 1.5 percent and closed the session as on 1st December at around Rs.Rs.53,238/10 grams mark.

Fed chair Jerome Powell has confirmed that the Fed will slow its pace of tightening in the coming months. Lower rate hikes tend to boost appeal which in turn led to rise in gold prices. We expect the momentum in gold to continue in the weeks ahead. Gold prices in the domestic futures might see it moving higher towards Rs.54500 mark by the end of December 2022. Our advice to investors is to take advantage of the price rise in the yellow metal and increase your exposure in the asset class at every dip.”

US inflation could decline further

“A major market positive that has helped equity markets globally during the last several days has been the steady decline in the dollar index and US bond yields. This trend continues. The dollar index is now below 105 and the US 10- year bond yield is around 3.43 %. Another important data is the declining manufacturing activity in the US in November. This negative economic news is paradoxically positive news from the market perspective since it indicates that the US economy is responding to the monetary tightening by the Fed. So, US inflation is likely to decline further enabling the Fed to slow down rate increases and perhaps pause in Q1 of 2023. This is market positive. Back home, even though there is momentum in our markets, valuations are at elevated levels. Scope for further PE expansion is limited. Therefore, the market is likely to consolidate around the present levels.”

Nifty, Sensex in red during pre-open session

08:49 (IST) 2 Dec 2022
Markets likely to see some consolidation

“Markets are likely to consolidate and drift lower in early trades Friday owing to weak Asian market cues. On daily charts, the market is in an overbought technical condition and continues to ignore the US bond market's recession warning. Investors world-over will closely watch today’s highly-anticipated US November jobs report. For Nifty, the make-or-break support is seen only at the 18,587 mark. On a positive side, the US annual PCE inflation data showing that inflation declined to 6% in October could trigger a sell-off in the US Dollar. The softer-than-expected US PCE inflation data should also weigh heavily on the USD/INR.”

GST collections grows 11%

“GST inflows in November 2022 recorded a healthy 11% expansion over November 2021, and printed in line with our expectations. The sequential dip in collections in November 2022 relative to October 2022, reflects the boost from quarter end payments in the latter month, as the inflows in each month pertain to the activity in the previous month. Moreover, while festive spending is assessed to have been high in October 2022, the generation of GST e-way bills had moderated sequentially given a higher number of holidays in that month.”

Bank Nifty support seen at 42,800

“The Bank Nifty index faced range-bound trading between 43,000-43,500 levels where the bulls and the bears were active. The index to resume the up move must surpass the level of 43,500 on the upside on a closing basis. The undertone remains bullish and one should keep a buy-on-dip approach with strong support at the 43,000-42,800 zone.”

Nifty to consolidate around 19000

“Sectorally, IT, PSU Bank, Realty and Metals were witnessing strength. Realty sector saw some traction after news reports suggested property registration picking up in Mumbai and stamp duty collection scaled to new peak in November. IT and Metals witnessed buying interest with signs of improving global environment. Auto sector saw some selling on back mixed monthly sales numbers. Nifty after moving up by 4% in last 8 sessions can witness some consolidation around the 19k mark. Expect momentum to continue in global sector like IT and Metals. Also real estate, cement and building material stocks are expected to do well on the back of strong housing demand.”
