D-Street Wipes Out All 2018 Gains

Bloodbath In D-Street Wiped Out All 2018 Gains As RBI Hold Rates At 6.5%

Our Analysis

The stock market witnessed a bloodbath due to the increase in Rupee (74/$) among other major factors. Adopting the Calibrated Tightening stance the RBIs kept the rate of 6.5% unchanged, higher crude oil prices and the governments decision to cut Rs.1.5 in excise duty as well as asking OMCs (Oil Marketing Companies) to cut Rs.1 which triggered sharp selloff in OMCs including Reliance. Sensex & NIFTY both wiped out all 2018 gains as they fell over 2,000 & 700 points respectively this week. Almost all sectoral indices remained under pressure.
Liquidity concerns in NBFCs, issues of IL&FS, further rupee depreciation, rising crude oil prices, trade tariff war all is not going to help Indian market in coming times as well, though as Q2 FY19 earnings will start with TCS next week, can defy the market mood going ahead.
