Sentiments Driving Ahead of News

weekly share market news and updates

Our Analysis

Indian market showed strong bull support. Any correction is getting support for buying by the investors. India-China border tensions are still on and government officials are heading towards both side compromise in order to keep bilateral tie-ups alive. The GDP contraction in the lockdown quarter of April-June could be unexpectedly severe, seeing the GST revenues and corporate result trends. The -23.9 percent GDP fall has exceeded most predictions since. The probable decline is even steeper as the unorganised segment (about 47 percent share), initially assessed by large companies performance, is not yet fully captured.

On the global front, equity markets slid further after the US Federal Reserve stopped short of promising changes to its massive bond-buying programme and the Bank of England held rates steady. The falls prolonged a day of gloomy trading in which European and Asian markets sank lower. Investors were left uneasy even after the Fed on Wednesday signalled it would hold US interest rates at historic low levels until at least the end of 2023. First-time jobless claims from Americans who found themselves newly unemployed also declined less than expected for the week ending September 12, to 860,000 from 893,000 the week before.

In commodities, oil rose, gaining more than 2 per cent, as a hurricane closed US offshore oil and gas production and an industry report showed US crude inventories decreased.
