The global rout in equities pushed benchmark indices below crucial support levels. Indian markets closed in the red for the fourth consecutive day in a row, weighed down by a rise in US Dollar as a result of monetary tightening and the possibility of a global recession.The Nifty50 broke below its crucial short-term support at 50-DMA, placed at 17,340 on Monday. It bounced back from its long-term support placed at 200-DMA at 16,993.The index finally closed 311 points lower at 17,016, while the S&P BSE Sensex plunged by 953 points to close at 57,145.

Gold gains Rs 138; Silver jumps Rs 224

Gold prices in the national capital rose by Rs 138 to Rs 49,786 per 10 grams on Monday, according to HDFC Securities. In the previous trade, the precious metal had closed at Rs 49,648 per 10 grams.Silver also jumped by Rs 224 to Rs 56,514 per kilogram from Rs 56,290 per kg in the previous trade.In the international market, gold was quoting lower at USD 1,639 per ounce, while silver was trading flat at USD 18.67 per ounce.

The speed with which central banks across the globe are hiking interest rates, investors are worried that slackening growth would push key economies into recession. With the monetary policy decisions on the anvil, rate-sensitive stocks like banking, realty & auto crumbled badly as rate hikes could dent demand going ahead. However, due to markets being in oversold territory, we could witness a quick pullback rally. For traders, the 200-day SMA and 16850 would act as a key support level. On the flip side 17150 and 17200 could be the immediate hurdle for the bulls.

The Bank Nifty index continued its downward momentum and remained under selling pressure throughout the day.

The soaring dollar as a result of aggressive monetary tightening, slowing economic growth and rising demand from cautious investors are causing turbulence in the global equity market. This is creating mayhem in the domestic market led by weakening INR, elevated bond yields and pessimistic trends of Asian peers. Only the IT sector, which exhibited the weakest performance in the last 1yr, defied the trend in anticipation that the global recession is mostly factored in the price and are trading at reasonable valuations

CLOSING BELL: Sensex ends with deep cuts for 4th session, falls 954 points; Nifty holds 17,000; Adani Ports, Maruti crack 6% each


We expect rupee to trade on a negative note as deteriorating global risk sentiments may put downside pressure on Rupee. Weak global markets may lead of safe haven flows towards US Dollar. However, sharp fall in crude oil prices may prevent sharp downside in Rupee. Investors may remain cautious ahead of RBI’s monetary policy meeting towards the end of the month. RBI is expected to rise interest rates by 50 bps. USDINR spot price is expected to trade in a range of Rs 80.50 to Rs 82.50 in next couple of sessions.

Market View: Neeraj Chadawar, Head – Quantitative Equity Research, Axis Securities

The Indian market performance showed resilience in the last couple of months, outperforming the global market by a superior margin based on the robust economic outlook compared to other emerging markets. After a hawkish US Fed stance, we are observing weakness in the global market on an expectation of a continuation of rate hikes in the remaining two FOMC meetings of 2022. In that context, term performance was likely to be range bound due to a stronger dollar. The Indian currency has performed well, and it has been stable vis-a-vis other emerging market currencies, on account of higher foreign exchange reserve, robust growth outlook, and macroeconomic stability. However, the sharp upward movement in the dollar index has created a weakness in the domestic market. Now the market is eyeing the RBI monetary policy, scheduled this week.

We recommend investors avoid riskier bets this week as volatility is likely to continue in the near term. Further, the market is eyeing the upcoming earning season & the festival demand, which will likely drive the market fundamentals. We recommend investors to use this volatility in the coming days in a phased manner to build a position with a view of 12-18 months in quality companies where earnings visibility is very high. In this context, domestic-oriented themes like Banks, FMCG, Hospitals, Domestic Industrials, and Discretionary consumption are well placed over export plus cyclical-oriented themes.

Rupee falls to fresh all-time lows as the dollar strengthens across the board. Hawkish Fed outlook, political instability in China and sell-off in pound after the tax cut announcement is also disturbing the overall market sentiment. This week, RBI will release its policy statement and this is likely to influence the rupee that is currently falling sharply against the US dollar.

The pull from 17000 has become irresistible now. That it coincides with the 200 day SMA makes it all the more compelling for Nifty to pay a visit, now that Friday closed just 1.7% away from it. Even more so, because the 38.2% fibo of the Jun-Sepmove is also at the same level. Ideally, a breach of 17000, will bring in 16000 into picture, with interim support seen at 16650.Meanwhile, given that a sharp draw down is already in place, we will watch the ability of 17166, the recent reaction low, to let bulls regroup early in the day and aim for a recovery push and 17430.

  • Downgraded Indian steel in Jan 0100
  • Believe it is still early to turn constructive

The global macro construct is not favourable for equity markets in the short run. The dollar index above 113 and the US 10-year yield at 3.73 % is likely to aggravate FPI outflows which have been gathering momentum during the last 3 days. The probability of a global recession is also increasing since the Fed continues to be ultra hawkish. The 5% cut in MSCI World Index last week indicates the bearish undertone of global equity markets. In this scenario the buy on dips strategy which worked since the June lows need not work now. Investors have to be cautious and remain vigilant. However, India will outperform both in economic growth and market performance. Therefore, selective buying can be done in domestic economy-facing segments like financials, autos, capital goods and select FMCG on sharp market declines.
