    June CPI preview

    We expect CPI to rise to 6.7% in June, driven by a sharp increase in core inflation, which we forecast will accelerate to 7.0% y/y, a seven year high. Both headline and core CPI are likely to be above RBI’s target band for two consecutive months, the first time this has happened since the adoption of the inflation-targeting mandate. If CPI inflation is close to our forecast, it will average close to 5.8% y/y in Q2, well above than RBI’s June policy estimate of 5.2%. Another challenge for the RBI is inflation’s relatively high persistence, which has increased amid the return of some supply disruptions in April-May.

    Exercise caution while investing now

    "Many global market experts are warning of bubbles in many asset classes, most prominently in equities. Equities, globally, are over-valued by all matrixes. But, interestingly, most bears warning about the collapse of the bubble are fully invested. These "fully invested bears" reflect the present market dilemma. Most bears are fully invested because the usual triggers for a sharp correction - persistent inflation, hawkish Fed, signals of imminent recession - are absent. So, the bull juggernaut may continue to roll on; but investors have to exercise caution. Some rebalancing of portfolios in favor of fixed income may be initiated. Markets are likely to respond positively to many Q1 FY22 numbers coming out from this week onwards. Brent crude at $77 is a serious macro concern," said V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.
