Wall Street opens lower, S&P 500 on pace to confirm bear market

Tech View: Defending 15,670 a must to avoid Nifty50 weakness
Nifty50 on Monday formed a bearish candle on the daily chart, with a long lower wick, suggesting recovery from intraday low of 15,684. The index has been seeing a strong support near 15,670 since March and analysts see it as make-or-break level. A breach of it may bring downside towards 15,500-400, they warned.
Rupee falls 20 paise to close at record low of 78.13 against US dollar
- The rupee plunged 20 paise to close at an all-time low of 78.13 against the US dollar on Monday, as a lacklustre trend in domestic equities and stronger greenback overseas weighed on investor sentiments.
- Forex traders said weak Asian currencies and persistent foreign capital outflows were the other major factors that dragged the local unit down.
- At the interbank foreign exchange market, the local currency opened at 78.20 and witnessed an intra-day high of 78.02 and a low of 78.29 against the US dollar.
- The local unit finally settled at its all-time low of 78.13, down 20 paise over its previous close.
All eyes would be on the CPI data to be released today evening. Moreover, the US Fed meet on Wednesday would induce further volatility. Nifty has almost retested the March 2022 low i.e. around 15,671 levels and its breakdown would pave the way for further decline towards 15,450 levels. In case of a rebound, the 15,900-16,200 zone would act as a hurdle. We recommend using rebound to create shorts in the index until we see some sign of reversal. Stocks, on the other hand, are offering opportunities on both sides so plan accordingly.

— Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities
Volatility in rupee remained low even after the release of RBI policy statement. The central bank in line with estimates remained hawkish and raised rates by 50bps. MPC voted unanimously to remain focused on withdrawal of accomodation to ensure inflation remains within target. Inflation forecast for the year was also raised to 6.7% compared to 5 7% forecasted earlier. Major crosses remain under pressure following broader strength in the dollar. Today focus will be on the ECB policy statement and hawkish comments could restrict major weakness for the Euro. We expect the USDINR to trade with sideways and quote in the range of 77.40 and 78.05.
– Gaurang Somaiya, Forex & Bullion Analyst, Motilal Oswal Financial Services
The correction in the global markets is due to a double whammy of upcoming policy rate hikes and cuts to the central bank’s balance sheet. Higher-than-expected US inflation data added fuel to the already wrecked market which was factoring in a 50bps hike in the Fed rate. The weakened rupee, persistent FII selling along with the anticipation of elevated domestic CPI numbers gripped domestic markets in fear. We will continue to trade with high volatility, however medium to long-term risk takers, should start chip-in to the market because this could be in the last phases of the consolidation.

Closing Bell: Sensex ends with 1,457-pt cut as global stocks bleed; Nifty settles below 15,800; Bajaj twins tank up to 7%
The global as well as Indian equities has witnessed sharp correction recently amid the worries over US inflation and possible aggressive Fed policy tightening while Covid-19 warning from Beijing has also added to concerns about global growth. Investors also await consumer inflation data in India. On the equity market outlook, while we believe volatility may remain in the near term, the recent trough gives an opportunity to the long-term investors to load up on quality companies with sustainable growth visibility. On the medium term, we continue to remain constructive on domestic consumption, capital goods and allied space and domestic manufacturing plays.
– Pankaj Pandey, Head – Research, ICICIdirect
No one knows where the bottom is. However, our research suggests that as soon as the Sensex PE multiple falls below 20x, the markets start looking very attractive from a 2-3 year perspective. Right now, the Sensex trades at a PE multiple of close to 22x. This means we are very close to the levels where we can again dream of earning returns in the region of 16%-18% per annum over the long term. Therefore, if you are fearful of entering the markets right now, the time to start turning greedy may not be too far away.

HSBC sees slower india rate hikes by year-end on growth worries
India’s central bank may slow down the pace of its monetary tightening by the end of the year as economic growth will lose momentum with waning demand, according to HSBC Holdings Plc. “RBI will not be that aggressive toward the end of the year because growth will begin to slow then and it is very conscious about the sacrifice ratio,” HSBC’s Chief India Economist Pranjul Bhandari said in an interview to Rishaad Salamat and Haslinda Amin on Bloomberg TV Monday. “When you hike rates too much then it starts hurting growth.”

Market LIVE Updates: Nifty extends slide, nears 15,750 mark
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.

Shares of Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) of India fell for the tenth straight session on Monday. The 30-day lock-in for anchor investors ended today and the stock is now down over 28 per cent as against its issue price of Rs 949. Anchor investors, who collectively bought nearly 59.3 million shares a day before the IPO opened for subscription at Rs 949 apiece, can sell their shares in the open market from Monday.
10-year bond yields hits over 3-year high
- The benchmark 10-year bond yield was trading at 7.60%, its highest since Feb. 28, 2019. Yield had ended at 7.52% on Friday.
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.

Sensex Heatmap: Only 2 index stocks trade on positive note
OPENING BELL: Sensex dives 1,300 points on global selloff, Nifty below 15,850; RBL Bank plunges 10%
Weak global sentiments and weak Asian and European currencies have allowed the rupee to open below 78 after RBI ensured it did not cross 77.70. Have to watch RBI as to how it behaves in the next few days. Crude is below 120 which is just a bit of consolation as Chinese demand and recession prospects worry investors. Exporters may sell near to 78.20 as a 40 paise gap up gives that opportunity. Importers need to wait below 78.00 to buy their near-term imports.
