    Gold prices fall Rs 2,000 in two weeks

    Gold prices have been on a downward trend. It has lost around 1% in today's trade and almost Rs 2,000 in value in the last two weeks. The latest US jobs data released was better than expected. It led to a boost in US Dollar and Treasury yields. A stronger dollar makes gold expensive. The better than expected jobs data also fueled the belief that US Fed may start tightening the monetary policy earlier than expected. High interest rates reduce the appeal for investment in gold. Also, an expectation of a quicker recovery in the US and global economy will reduce uncertainties and thereby investor's appetite for gold.

    Chris Wood not giving up on US gold and gold mining stocks; may add Bitcoin holdings if prices fall

    Gold has given up its historic correlation with real interest rates in US dollar terms, moving flat while the real 10-year Treasury yield has declined by 40 basis points since mid-June. However, despite this, Jefferies’ global head (equity strategy) is not giving up on gold and gold mining stocks. “GREED & fear will not give up on gold and gold mining stocks while it is also worth noting that investor positioning favours a rally in gold in the sense that net long positions are rising again,” Chris Wood said in his weekly note.

    Analyst view on July 2021 AMFI DATA

    This month we seem to have seen record netflows into equity mutual funds considering nearly 27,000 crs inflows into equity and hybrid (non arbitrage) schemes. Over 50% of this is attributable to NFOs as AMCs try to complete their range as per SEBI scheme categorization norms and some more through thematic launches. Momentum continues in passive products albeit led mainly by overseas funds and funds of funds investing overseas. It is heartening to know that after a long hiatus we have seen over 3000 crs net positive flows in balanced advantage and equity hybrid funds which is the right category to allocate to at this juncture in the markets from a risk averse investors perspective.

    Gold prices extend fall

    Gold extended its fall, along with silver after a stronger than expected U.S. jobs reported on Friday which fueled the bets that the Fed may start paring back its massive monetary stimulus soon. The dollar and benchmark 10-year Treasury yields jumped after the data, denting non-yielding gold’s appeal. U.S. employers hired the most workers in nearly a year in July and continued to raise wages, giving the economy a powerful boost. Market participants worry that the U.S. economic recovery and rising inflation might spur the Fed to pull back on unprecedented economic support. No major data is expected on the economic calendar today, although U.S. inflation data is scheduled later this week which will be important to watch.

    Buy gold on dips: Axis Securities

    Gold prices continue to face a challenge with further strengthening of the dollar. Rising inflation expectation and improved economic outlook with a pick-up in vaccination for the H2-2021 and view on central banks tapering are the headwinds in the near term which will limit the gold prices. However, gold will continue to be a preferred asset class till uncertainties over the economic recovery remain and will continue to attract investments as a hedge against other asset classes. We continue our Neutral stance on Gold and recommend a ‘Buy-on- Dips’ strategy. Axis Securities

    Gold prices fall over 2.5%

    Gold prices have declined 2.6 percent in the international markets and 2.3 percent on the MCX futures in the time period 18th June to 6th August 2021. The fall in the prices of the yellow metal in the recent weeks is due to combination of factors ranging from increasing cases of COVID-19, delta variant cases, dovish tone by the US FED on tapering the Quantitative Easing, lower bond yields in the US, good non- Farm Payrolls data, and the factors alike.

    Nifty's short-term support at 16,200

    The Indian benchmark is trading with a small positivity and has been constantly able to sustain above the level of 15200 which has strengthened the belief in positivity for investors. Sentiments got a boost as The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's objective of $400 billion in exports this year is realistic, given the current global condition of post-pandemic economic recovery and increased competitiveness of Indian goods. Our research suggests that 16200 is an important support level for the market in the short term and we can expect the volatility in the market to expand and attain new levels of 16500.

    Should you subscribe to Chemplast Sanmar?

    Considering the FY-21 adjusted EPS of Rs.25.95 on the post-issue basis, the company is going to list at a P/E of 20.85 with a market cap of Rs.85,537 mn, while its peers namely PI Industries and SRF are trading at a P/E of 61.16 and 37.26 respectively. We assign a “Subscribe (With Caution)” rating to this IPO as the company is well-positioned to capture favourable industry dynamics. However, the negative net asset value along with higher trade payable days keeps us cautious from a longer-term perspective. Marwadi Shares and Finance

    Zomato near-term growth overestimated? HSBC initiates with ‘reduce’; sees 15% downside in stock price

    Zomato’s share price has soared 71% from its IPO price within weeks of listing on the stock exchanges. Although many domestic and foreign brokerage firms believe Zomato’s stock price could surge higher, HSBC has initiated its coverage of the food-tech giant with a ‘reduce’ rating. HSBC, in a report last week, said that the food delivery industry in India is about an important change to the product itself --  from homecooked to restaurant food. “Which is why we think, while the long-term opportunity is real, the market may end up over-estimating growth in the near term,” they added. Today, Zomato is trading at Rs 130 per share.

    Should you subscribe Nuvoco?

    We like NVCL due its leadership position in fast growing East market, wide premium product portfolio and ability to successfully integrate large acquisitions. The issue is valued at USD146 FY21 EV/ton (USD) and 16.6x EV/EBITDA on post issue basis, which is at discount to industry average given slightly weaker financials. As NVCL has a short history of existence, we believe it has potential to improve its financials in the long run and come at par to its peers as operating leverage kicks in. It is expected to witness strong growth going ahead led by its expansion plans, integration of NU Vista and debt reduction. We recommend Subscribe for Long Term. Motilal Oswal Financial Services

    74.40-74.50 levels will act as an important resistance for USD-INR

    The IPO fever continues to buzz with Nuvoco Viastas' Rs 5000 cr, CarTrade Rs 3000 cr, Aptus Value Housing Rs. 2800, and Chemplast Sanmar Rs.3800cr likely to hit markets this week. It will be watchful whether RBI shows any intervention downside to cap sharp gains in rupee. If so, any dip on account of inflows should be taken as a buying opportunity amid broad dollar strength. Going ahead, India’s Industrial Production for June and CPI inflation for July will keep markets on edge especially after the RBI increased its FY22 inflation forecast to 5.7% from 5.1% earlier. Technically, for dollar-rupee pair 74.40-74.50 levels will act as an important resistance to watch for. If the pair breaks and consistently trades above 74.40-50 levels, then the rupee is most likely to move near 74.80-90 levels in the near term and then towards 75.30-75.50 levels in the medium term.

    Gold may remain under pressure as market reacts to US non-farm payrolls report

    COMEX gold witnessed a volatile start to the week. Price hit a session low of $1677.9/oz and is currently trading 1.4% lower near $1738/oz. The snap reaction can be attributed to lower trading volumes amid holidays in Japan, Singapore. Weighing on gold price is increased expectations of Fed’s monetary tightening post US non-farm payrolls data and some hawkish comments by Fed officials. ETF outflows also show weaker investor interest amid continuing firmness in equities. However, rising virus cases and increased geopolitical tensions have lent some support. Gold may remain under pressure as market players react to US non-farm payrolls report. Ravindra Rao, CMT, EPAT, VP- Head Commodity Research, Kotak Securities
