“Indian equities opened with a significant gap down today, tracking weak global cues, and are seeing a sell-off after US May inflation data accelerated to a four-decade high of 8.6%, raising concerns about aggressive rate hikes by the US Federal Reserve at its upcoming monetary policy meeting on Wednesday. This month's volatility is projected to be higher than usual due to inflationary pressures, interest rate hikes, and other global economic pressures. The rupee fell to a new all-time low on Friday, as the dollar strengthened and global crude oil prices rose. India's inflation report is expected today, and investors are worried about the Reserve Bank of India's next move. If retail inflation in India continues to grow and crosses the 8% milestone, the market will become more volatile. Investors may wait until the market trend becomes clearer, but long-term investors should stay invested if they have a long-term investment plan, since a large correction will provide an opportunity for investors to purchase high-quality equities at appealing prices.”

“Technically, if the Nifty breaks and closes below the 15700 level, it will be a major downside event for the market. In such a situation, the Nifty would fall to the level of 15500/15400 in the short term. Also, it would remain under continued selling pressure due to the dismissal of long-term support levels. It is advisable to take a weak long position below the 15700 level. Bank Nifty would also drop to 32000 level if it closes below 33500 level.”

“The burgeoning losses of the downstream oil PSUs may pose severe challenges to government and investors both as (1) the government will have to balance the finances of companies, its fiscal position and inflation and (2) investors may have to increasingly worry about a return to the era of controlled prices and subsidies. Annualized impact of the two excise duty cuts in November 2021 and May 2022 is pegged around Rs2.2 lakh crore. Crude oil prices inched up last week with Brent crude trading above $120 per barrel mark. India’s macro-economic factors and investment case would weaken considerably if crude prices were to increase further given a combination of (1) top-down negative impact on inflation and interest rates, fiscal and bond yields and BoP and currency and (2) bottom-up negative impact on profitability and margins for almost all sectors. The Indian market’s valuations continue to be uninspiring, especially of consumption sectors and ‘quality’ stocks. Financials remain one of the few patches with reasonable valuations, but they too will struggle if India’s macro-economic position was to deteriorate further; credit growth may stay muted.

“If we look at the technical chart of Nifty, it has given a breakout from a bearish flag pattern on the daily time frame and has come close to an important support of 15670 levels. If the index breaks this level, it would lead to a continuation of the lower-high and lower-low pattern on the weekly timeframe indicating bearish bias for the medium term. We expect it to slide down below 15000 levels if the support is broken. Nifty Bank has formed a symmetrical triangle pattern on the daily chart and is near the previous swing low of 33000. If there is a breakdown from the pattern, which is likely to be the case, we can expect Nifty bank to reach 30000 levels as well.”

“The US Inflation rate came in at 8.6% which is a 40-year high. US 10 year bond yields are ~3.187. Hence there is a huge gap of ~5.4% between the two. In order to bridge the gap, the central banks have to tame inflation by increasing interest rates. If the 10yr Bond yields in US increases to 5%, we would see balance sheets getting starched for many companies. The yields on US 2-year Treasuries have past 3% and now are trading at the highest level since 2007, and it's gap with the 10-year yields is now less than 5bps, making a case for a sharp downturn in the equities. In the last 100 years, almost all recessions have been preceded by a rising US$, rising Interest rates and rising crude oil prices. Even this time the scenario is the same.”

“LIC, at current price it can be accumulated with at least 3 years perspective. It will remain under pressure for some more time as anchor investors will be free to exit after 16th June. But considering the relative cheap valuation at lower levels it will find interest from domestic retail and HNI investors. Institutional investor will wait for some more time before they start buying it.”

Gap-down markets as inflation jitters continue to haunt global markets. We suspect, Nifty will lack direction in the afternoon session as the key driver of sentiment hinges now on the FOMC policy Outcome (June 15th), U.S 10-year Treasury spiked to 3.157%. The street now expects it to flirt with 4% by the end of 2022, and India’s CPI inflation data on June 13 and WPI inflation to trickle in on June 14.

USDINR touched a fresh all time high at 78.27 and now trading at 78.14. RBI intervention is suspected, both in spot as well as forwards. Till US Fed meeting on Wednesday, there can be significant upward pressure on USDINR. Odds for a 75 bps hike is rising and that is positive for USD. However, we expect RBI to cap the upside. We are looking at a range of 77.90 to 78.40 on spot over the near term. Anindya Banerjee, VP, Currency Derivatives & Interest Rate Derivatives at Kotak Securities

“The equity market has been volatile given withdrawal of accommodative monetary policy both globally and locally. The market has already priced in the rate hike hence no there was no major impact on yields post the policy last week. In fact given the shape of the yield curve and swap curve, market is already pricing in a terminal repo rate much higher than the pre pandemic level. With markets pricing in rate hikes aggressively, the 3–5-year segment on yield curve looks attractive on a risk adjusted basis. As liquidity in the system reduces and debt market gets crowded out due to increased government supply, credit spread, which has been very tight should begin to expand. This should good offer opportunity to invest in investment grade credit over the next 6-12 months.”

Indian benchmark indices tanked over 2.5% on Monday, tracking weak global cues. BSE Sensex crashed over 1,500 points as it slipped below the 53,000 level and the Nifty 50 shed 400 points to slide below 15,750. Equity investors became poorer by over Rs 5.47 lakh crore in early trade. In line with weak trend in equities, the market capitalisation of BSE-listed firms eroded by Rs 5.47 lakh crore to Rs 246 lakh crore. “Weakness was seen in the equity market across the globe, led by higher-than-expected inflation data in the US market, leading to a rise in the bond yields. US bond yields are now trading above 3.15% levels, indicating the aggressive rate hike expectation by the US FED in the upcoming FOMC meeting, scheduled this week,” said Naveen Kulkarni, Chief Investment Officer, Axis Securities.

– India’s CPI inflation data on June 13 and WPI inflation to trickle in on June 14.
A hot inflation reading is bolstering expectations that the Federal Reserve will continue to aggressively hike rates in the second half of this year, even with signs of economic slowdown. Honestly speaking bear holds grip on markets very tight hence, we advise investors to have “Wait and watch strategy “and not get into the trap. Once the above economic data is out and market discounts that then, we can enter markets in a phase wise manner. On the downside, the line in the sand is at Nifty’s support at 15793 mark.”

NSE Nifty 50 may jump 10 per cent from current levels to 17500 by mid-July, says Sanjiv Bhasin, Director, IIFL Securities. In today’s session, Nifty 50 hit a day’s low of 15,760.95. Sanjiv Bhasin in interview with Surbhi Jain of FinancialExpress.com, said that BSE Sensex could fall to 53000 on the downside, and then reclaim 57000 levels in mid-July, as last week of June could see reversal of ‘sell the rallies’ to ‘buy the dips’. The second half of July is likely to see global rally resumption after a strong correction. Bhasin suggested investors should focus on midcap stocks as they offer great buying opportunities amid stock market volatility. Read full interview
Bears prowled Dalal Street and tightened grip on the Indian equity markets on Monday, as inflation concerns and fears of aggressive interest rate hikes by the US Fed spooked investors. May consumer inflation hit a fresh 40-year high of 8.6% in the US, while India CPI inflation in May is expected to stay above 7%. Given this, the BSE Sensex tumbled over 1,500 points to hit an intraday low of 52,737 levels, while the NSE Nifty 50 broke below 15,800 levels. Broader markets too fell in line with headline indices. All sectors bled in red with bank, metals, and realty falling the most under selling pressure. Persistent equity selloff by FIIs, negative sentiments across global markets, coupled with a weaker rupee was dampening investors’ risk appetite, according to analysts.

“Nifty opened gap down as equity markets across globe are witnessing a sell-off after US May inflation data accelerated to four decades high which raised concerns about aggressive rate hikes by US Fed in the upcoming monetary policy meet due this wednesday. US treasury yields surged to 14 year high at 3.15% while dollar index spiked above 104 levels. US futures are also down ~1%. On the domestic side, India’s inflation data is due today on account of which nervousness is likely to be seen in the market. Apart from these market would continue to remain cautious ahead of various central banks meetings in this week .”

“Tracking dismal cues from the global markets amid a surge in the US headline inflation, the Nifty has fallen back near the 15670-15750 support zone. This is a critical support area for the index, as it has held firmly for the past three months. A break and sustainability below this zone would open the door for an extension of the decline towards 15000 levels. On the upside, 16000 now becomes the immediate resistance for the Nifty. This week is event-packed, with inflation data from India and Federal Reserve meeting scheduled to take place. Given the importance of these events, volatility is likely to remain elevated across the board. Hence, it would be prudent for one to remain light on positions and avoid any aggressive bets.”

US inflation: The US inflation hit a fresh 40-year high in May, accelerating to 8.6 per cent from a year ago and beating street estimates. The red-hot inflation extended Wall Street’s selloff on Friday.
Fear of aggressive rate hikes: After the latest US inflation data point – the US Fed will likely continue its aggressive interest rate increases to help cool high prices after their 2-day FOMC meet due on June 15.

“The near-term market trend is weak. The May US inflation print at 8.6% against the market expectation of 8.3% is likely to turn the Fed more hawkish with a series of 50 bp rate hikes taking the terminal rate by mid 2023 above 3.5%. Such a scenario would be negative for risky assets like equity, particularly in the context of declining global growth. The Indian market will stabilize only when the US market stabilises. Therefore, investors may wait and watch till clarity emerges on the market trend. One silver lining is the 7.1% increase in IIP which indicates that the Indian economy is doing well. Therefore, long-term investors can use the dips in the market to buy high quality economy-facing stocks like capital goods, banking, telecom and export segments.”
