Investors concern over Unlock 1.0

Our Analysis

Indian markets are taking cue from the implication of reopening the economy as a number of cases are ticking up day by day. Sectors like multiplexes, malls, commercial reality, travel & luggage, hospitality, restaurants, etc, were mainly under pressure as they had moved rapidly in the last few weeks in the hope of benefiting from the lifting of lockdown. Banks and NBFC also went southwards on the fear of expected rise in NPA. Markets are also taking cue from the US Federal Reserve’s policy meeting outcome. The US central bank projected a 6.5 per cent decline in the US economy's gross domestic product (GDP) this year and a 9.3 per cent unemployment rate at the year's end. Unemployment rate and decision on H1-B visa may affect Indian IT sector as majority numbers are among Indian IT employees. Monsoon has started in many parts of the country raising hope for a boost in agri based activities.

On the global front, global indices and oil have tumbled later in a week over growing concerns that a resurgence of coronavirus infections could stunt the pace of recovery from lockdowns. Also, the rise in crude oil inventory in the US worries about oversupply and weak energy demand.

Broader Index & Global Market:

- Domestic market witnessed a sell off across the board on fear of rising cases after lifting of lockdown with banking and financials taking the biggest knock. The investor sentiment took a hit post the US Federal Reserve's policy meeting outcome. Sensex and Nifty down by ~3% and 1.8% in a week respectively.

- World shares hovered below three months high on sobering outlook by US Federal Reserves. Asian indices witnessed a rally for 10 consecutive days on lifting of lockdown in many countries which fed investors hopes on a relatively quicker global economic recovery. Meanwhile,oil climbed after major producers agreed to extend a deal on record output cuts to the end of July. Oil could not sustain the rally and tumbled by the end of week on record build-up US inventory.
