Bulls Dominating US Election

Our Analysis

The Indian stock market is reaching its pre-covid level. Initially lock down in European countries has given a jerk but later the market stabilised and stated its bull run again. Market witnessed a couple of negative sessions just before Us election, but later moved up ignoring the outcome. Considering the current progress, it might take a few weeks for the outcome of US elections. Most of the sectors are doing well.

On the global front, share markets were whipsawed, while bonds and the dollar gained on Wednesday as results from the US presidential election proved far closer than polls had predicted, potentially leaving the outcome in doubt for days or weeks. US equity futures went on a wild ride, rising then falling, climbing again as the voting seemed to favour Trump only to sag once more as the president vowed to make a Supreme Court challenge.

In commodities, oil dropped as Democrat Joe Biden edged closer to the White House in a nail-biting US presidential election, but the Republicans look likely to retain Senate control, decreasing the chances of any huge Covid-19 relief package.

Broader Index & Global Market:

- Market has shown significant correction one week before the US election. But irrespective of the outcome, the market started surging. Most of the sectors performed well during this week barring Nifty Realty and Nifty Media. Midcaps have shown great optimism.

- On the global front, Asian shares scaled a near three-year peak and bonds extended their blistering rally as investors wagered the prospect of US policy gridlock would greatly favour some industries while also restraining government borrowing.

Japan’s Nikkei rose 1.7 per cent to a more than nine-month top and South Korea put on 2.4 per cent.
