Dovish RBI Stance, Monsoon To Resolve The Economic Slowdown

Share Market Weekly

Our Analysis

The week started with a bunch of bad news which arrived on the last weekend. The weak GDP data for the March quarter, poor auto sales figure, disappointing Q4 earnings, and all this before the first day of this week. Market experts were too expecting bears to take control, however, the market reacted contrastingly on Monday. Rate cut hopes paved by various indicators, reduction in Brent crude prices and the most relevant factor 10-year government bond yields which traded below 7 percent shrugged off all the negativity. On the back of these factors, markets made a spiking sprint and closed above 40,000 & 12,000 for the first time.

Further, RBI turned the expectation to reality and curtailed the repo rates by 25 bps. Being an expected and factored move market turned upside down post these rate cuts and Sensex tanked by almost more than 500 points on the same day. The biggest fall of 2019 was evident to show that, market participants are now more concerned towards the growth impetus. Liquidity crisis and trimmed GDP growth projections were the drivers of these sentiments. Banking and NBFC sector was the bleeding one this time. The wounds were deepened by ICRA and CRISIL by downgrading DHFLs commercial paper. The news just pressed the panic button which destroyed the stock. DHFL took a beating of more than 25 percent this week. Even the funds having a decent exposure to DHFLs debt instrument witnessed a nasty knock in NAVs which dropped by almost 6-51 percent.

The FPI was a net buyer in 2019 which has invested around Rs.78,000 crores so far. The recent decline in US bond yields made equities attractive over fixed-income assets as it lowers the interest rates. The scenario benefited Indian markets more this time. Indian markets have seen the lowest impacts of US-China trade war escalations as compared to other markets. Moreover, the revision of overweight position from global brokerages also raised hopes.

Going ahead, The market is expecting some stimulus and higher spending from Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharamans Union Budget on July 5, which could revive demand and growth. On an immediate basis, expect the volatility owing to uncertain global cues and lack positive domestic triggers. Any correction or consolidation would not be a surprise ahead, after a dream run up the consolidation is expected to build a future path. Being an investor no need to worry about the same rather one can bet on the quality businesses from the broader market during this phase. Progress of monsoon, movement of crude oil prices and fluctuation in currency needs to monitored keenly ahead.
