Nifty, Sensex May Remain Weak For a Few Days - Weekly Closing Report
Moneylife Digital Team 12 April 2024
The trends of the major indices in the course of the week’s trading are given in the table below:
On Friday, Indian equity markets witnessed a substantial 1% decline in benchmark indices Sensex and Nifty, as investor sentiment faltered amid a broad-based selloff. This downturn was fuelled by disappointing US CPI inflation data, which dashed hopes of an imminent June rate cut and triggered a surge in treasury bond yields.
In the US, inflation surged by 0.4% month-over-month, surpassing forecasts and causing a spike in Treasury yields. This has led investors to question the feasibility of the anticipated three rate cuts by the Federal Reserve this year, resulting in underperformance in emerging markets (EMs). Expectations of three rate cuts by the US Federal Reserve this fiscal year had been building up, but the recent uptick in inflation has tempered these hopes, prolonging the wait for rate cuts. Consequently, the Indian markets reacted sharply to the rising inflation and diminishing prospects of a near-term rate reduction.
