Market Close Highlights: Sensex ends down 200pts, Nifty at 23,260; Broader markets outperform, IT, Auto, Metal drag

Market Close Highlights : A selloff in Europe set the tone for global markets on Monday as France's decision to call a snap election weighed on everything from the euro to banking stocks and government bonds.

Asia shares fell and U.S. stock futures pointed to a weak open on Wall Street, with an event-packed week that includes the release of U.S. inflation data as well as Federal Reserve and Bank of Japan meetings adding to the cautious mood.

For now, it's the prospect of fresh political uncertainty in the euro zone's second biggest economy weighing on sentiment after far-right gains in European Parliament elections on Sunday prompted a bruised French President Emmanuel Macron to call a snap national election.

The euro fell to a one-month low against the dollar, European stocks slipped 0.6%, euro zone bank stocks tumbled 2% while government bond yields in France and Italy jumped.

"The market moves are all about what we are seeing in a European context - and news from France has caused a risk premium around European assets," said BlueBay Asset Management chief investment officer Mark Dowding.

"It could swing a bit further but we need to remind ourselves this is a parliamentary election not a presidential election in France."

French bank Societe Generale was last down more than 5% and BNP Paribas more than 4% as investors worried their funding costs may increase if French sovereign borrowing becomes more expensive amid higher spending, bankers said.

France's 10-year government bond yield jumped 8 basis points to 3.19%, while Italian borrowing costs also rose.

Trading was thinned in Asia with Australia, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan observing public holidays.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan slipped 0.3%, global shares were down 0.15% and U.S. equity futures were also broadly lower.

The global risk rally came to a halt after Friday's nonfarm payrolls report showed the U.S. economy created far more jobs than expected in May and annual wage growth reaccelerated, underscoring the resilience of the labour market.

Futures now show roughly 36 basis points (bps) worth of U.S. rate cuts priced in this year, down from 50 bps last week. The odds for an easing cycle beginning in September have also lengthened.

The Fed's next policy decision comes on Wednesday, with U.S. inflation figures for May due just before that.

"With inflation still firmly above the 2% target, the Fed has more work to do to tame these forces and will not be in a position to deliver a rate cut when its committee meets next week," said David Arnaud, a senior Fund Manager, fixed income, at Canada Life Asset Management.

He said that with recent data pointing to a cooling of the economy, the Fed should be able to subtly adjust its message around upcoming rate cuts with a quarter point cut in the final three months of the year still likely.

U.S. Treasury yields, which move inversely to prices, rose on Monday, reflecting the higher-for-longer U.S. rate expectations.

The two-year yield and benchmark 10-year yield each ticked up about two bps to around 4.89% and 4.45%, respectively.

Against the dollar, the yen dipped 0.1% to 156.93. The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of six other major currencies, firmed to 105.17.

The Bank of Japan (BOJ) holds a two-day monetary policy meeting this week and could offer fresh guidance on how it plans to scale back its massive bond purchases.

In commodities, oil prices edged up, aided by hopes of rising fuel demand this summer, though gains were capped by the stronger dollar.

Brent crude futures gained 0.4% % to $79.91 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude futures ticked up 0.2% to $75.71 per barrel.

Spot gold rose 0.13% to around $2,296 an ounce.

10 Jun 2024, 03:41 PM IST Sensex Today Live : Closing Bell Wrap

Sensex Today Live : Indian benchmark indices closed in the red, breaking their streak of three straight sessions of higher closing, as markets were weighed down by muted global cues.

Indian markets had opened at record highs on Monday, but were dragged down by the fading hopes of delayed rate cuts by the US Federal Reserve after better than expected job creation data on Friday raised bets of a delayed rate cut.

Coupled with that were the political developments in Europe, where France's sitting president Emmanuel Macron called for snap elections after his far-right rival Marine Le Pen's party defeated his party in the European Parliament election.

In India, Sensex, which had opened at a record high of 76,693.36, climbed higher still to touch a peak of 77,079.04, for the first time. Nevertheless, at close, the 30-stock benchmark index lost some of its steam to close at 76,490.08, down 203.28 points, or 0.27%.

Simiraly, Nifty, which had opened at a high of 23,319.15, created a fresh all-time high of 23,411.90 in intraday trades, but shed some of its gains to close at 23,259.20, down 30.95 points, or 0.13%.

Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services, said, "The Indian market currently lacks fresh catalysts following the formation of the new government at the centre, suggesting that some consolidation may occur in the near term. Institutional flows indicate a mixed trend, with FIIs gradually covering their shorts and DIIs booking profits after the market reached historic highs. Meanwhile, optimism about a rate cut is waning as US economic data points remain healthy. The FED is expected to continue its current stance. However, any dial-back of the rate cut guided earlier could test market patience."

 

Meanwhile, more than half of the 30 stocks on the BSE Sensex closed in the red. Tech Mahindra, Infosys, Wipro, Bajaj Finance, and Mahindra & Mahindra, were the top drags, while UltraTech Cement, Power Grid Corp., Nestle India, NTPC, and Tata Steel were the top gainers.

That apart, 23 of the 50 stocks on the Nifty 50 closed in the red. Tech Mahindra, Infosys, Wipro, LTIMindtree, and Bajaj Finance, were the top drags, while UltraTech Cement, Grasim Industries, Hero MotoCorp., Cipla, and Power Grid Corp., were the top gainers.

The broader market outperformed the benchmark indices for the day, with the BSE SmallCap gaining 1.04% and the BSE MidCap climbing 0.56% at close.

Across sectors, IT, Metal, Bank, Private Bank, Financial Services and Oil & Gas, closed in the red. The IT index was down 1.83%, followed by the Metal index, which was down 0.38%.

The Bank and Financial Services indices were down 0.04% and 0.05%, respectively.

On the flip side, the Media index had gained the most, followed by Realty and Pharma.

Other notable gainers for the day were the Consumer Durables and Healthcare indices, while Auto and FMCG closed marginally ahead.

10 Jun 2024, 02:46 PM IST Sensex Today Live : Gopal Kavalireddi, Vice President of Research at FYERS, says the forthcoming 100-day action plan and a comprehensive Union Budget will provide a clearer picture of the government's priorities for the Indian economy after release of AMFI Data showed a net inflow of ₹34,697 crore into equity-oriented schemes

Sensex Today Live : "A record net inflow of 34,697 crore into equity-oriented schemes propelled the total inflows into mutual funds to 1.1 lakh crore for the month of May. Despite potential high volatility from FII selling, ongoing general elections, GDP data, and other minor events in May, investors remained steadfast in their pursuit of returns on the back of the Indian growth narrative, buoyed by confidence in the incumbent government securing a record third consecutive term.

SIP inflows for May reached 20,904 crore, up from 20,371 crore in April 2024, marking the second consecutive month of inflows exceeding 20,000 crore. As a result, the Assets Under Management (AUM) of the mutual fund industry increased by 2.9%, reaching 58.91 lakh crore.

While the return of the incumbent government bolstered confidence in the continuation of economic policies and widespread reforms implemented over the last 10 years, the largest party's lack of a clear majority tempered enthusiasm to an extent. Although coalition governments face challenges in consensus building and decision-making, infrastructure and nation-first initiatives introduced earlier are likely to receive support from allies across the political spectrum. The forthcoming 100-day action plan and a comprehensive Union Budget will provide a clearer picture of the government's priorities for the Indian economy."

“Last week, Nifty saw significant gains, with the Sensex hitting a historic high of 76,795.31. With Narendra Modi sworn in for a third term as Prime Minister and the RBI raising India's GDP growth projection to 7.2% for FY24-25, markets are expected to trade positively. Nifty's major support is at 23,000/22,507, with hurdles at 23,500/24,000. Options data suggests a trading range of 22,000-24,000, with significant call writing at 24,000 and put writing at 23,000. Preferred trades include buying Nifty between 23,000-23,100 and Bank Nifty between 49,500-49,600. Balkrishna Industries is recommended for buying at CMP 3202 with targets of 3,257/3,355 and aggressive targets at 3,551."

10 Jun 2024, 08:56 AM IST Sensex Today Live : Dr. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services, says FIIs selling on concerns of high valuations will be easily absorbed by DII plus retail buying

"After the roller coaster ride last week the market is likely to take a breather in the near-term. It is important to understand that the major driving force in this bull market is the Indian retail investors including HNIs. Big selling by FIIs is getting eclipsed by the aggressive buying of DIIs and retail investors. The fact that retail investors bought equity for 21,179 crores on June 4th, the day Nifty tanked 5.9%, indicates the buying power and optimism of the retail investors. This is a structural long-long term trend. FII selling on concerns of high valuations will be easily absorbed by DII plus retail buying. So, if FIIs swim against this trend, they will underperform in one of the best performing stock markets in the world. That said, retail investors should not chase highly valued mid and small caps. Safety is in largecaps."
