The market witnessed three weeks of tug of war between bulls and bears. Finally, Nifty resumed its uptrend and surpassed its previous all-time high of 12103.05. During the week, nifty opened down and witnessed selling pressure from the beginning of Monday. Investors were closely monitoring the RBI policy and were expecting another rate cut. But the sentiments turned wrong and RBI kept the policy rate unchanged.
RBI unanticipatedly maintains the repo rate to 5.15% in its fifth bi-monthly policy review after cutting the repo rate for 5 consecutive times making it 135 bps in 2019. MPC unanimously voted for the status quo on the repo rate. The MPC recognizes that there is monetary policy space for future action. However, given the evolving growth inflation dynamics, the MPC felt it appropriate to take a pause at this juncture. Accordingly, the MPC decided to keep the policy repo rate unchanged and continue with the accommodative stance as long as it is necessary to revive growth while ensuring that inflation remains within the target. RBI cut its GDP growth estimate for FY20 to 5% vs. 6.1% earlier. Various high-frequency indicators suggest that the demand conditions have remained weak. The business expectations index of the Reserve Bankâ€™s industrial outlook survey indicates a marginal pickup in business sentiments in Q4. A slowdown in GDP growth was cushioned by government expenditure.
Global economic activity has remained subdued, though some signs of resilience are becoming visible. Growth has shown signs of picking up in some advanced economies & emerging market economies. Global markets have remained buoyant on hopes of trade deal resolution.The Nifty is wondering around the same levels now. Investors are getting bounded in the same range. For Nifty, 11920 was expected to be a good support level while 12300 can act at resistance.
