September PMI shows manufacturing grows for 15th month in a row; output looks set to expand further

Leading indicators suggest that “output looks set to expand further at least in the short-term as firms seek to fulfil sales contracts and replenish stocks”, Pollyanna De Lima, Economics Associate Director, S&P Global Market Intelligence, said in the PMI note.

Credit Suisse crisis unlikely to impact the markets

Even though there are global challenges for equity markets, India's outperformance is likely to continue. A significant trend in the market now is the dominance of DIIs and retail investors over FIIs. Last Friday when FIIs sold equity worth Rs 1545 crores in the cash market DIIs bought equity for Rs 3245 crores. If this kind of dominance of DIIs and retail investors can be sustained, FIIs will have to slow down their selling even in the context of rising dollar and bond yields in the US. Re-entry for FIIs will be expensive since DIIs and retail will not easily sell back the stocks which FIIs have sold. Auto numbers for September confirm the strong auto rebound trend. There is more room for CV, PV and select 2-wheeler stocks to move up.

The fears regarding the Credit Suisse crisis are unlikely to impact the markets since it doesn’t have the potential to become a systemic crisis. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

Nifty’s drop to 16300-16483 support appears to be on the table

After a sharp rebound on Friday, equity markets could once again come under a bear hammering in early Monday trades, tracking weakness across the Asian markets. SGX Nifty is indicating a gap-down start for local equities in the backdrop of a brutal selling witnessed at Wall Street in Friday’s trade where the S&P 500 ended at a new closing low for the year and the Dow Jones index dived deep into bear market territory. There is lack of evidence from the Fed’s action that they are winning their battle against inflation. For now, the market seems to be assuming that more hawkishness is on the menu. Technically speaking, Nifty’s drop to 16300-16483 support appears to be on the table. Prashanth Tapse – Research Analyst, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities
