Sensex Crash Today | Market Crash Highlights : World stocks eased on Wednesday as traders held their fire ahead of a U.S. inflation reading later this week that may influence the timing of the Federal Reserve's easing cycle.

European stocks dipped 0.1%, with lacklustre corporate earnings weighing on sentiment, though German stocks bucked the trend to add 0.2%.

Markets across major assets were generally quiet, with investor focus squarely on the U.S. personal consumption expenditures price index for January, the Fed's preferred inflation measure, due on Thursday.

A slew of strong economic data, along with sticky inflation, has resulted in traders drastically dialling back their initial expectations of deep and early interest rate cuts from the Fed.

The MSCI world equity index, which tracks shares in 47 countries, fell 0.2%.

Wall Street was also set to fall, with S&P futures gauges pointing to losses of around 0.3%.

Chinese stocks slid as investors booked profits after a recent rally, while worries over the property sector lingered after a liquidation petition was filed against developer Country Garden, with blue-chips down 1.3%.

U.S. crude fell 0.87% to $78.18 per barrel and Brent was down 0.9% at $82.91.

Sensex Today Live : Q3 GDP data tomorrow: Growth seen at 6.8% with slight moderation likely in economic activity, says SBI's Ecowrap

Sensex Today Live : The State Bank of India's (SBI) research 'Ecowrap' states that the GDP growth for the December quarter of the fiscal year 2024 (Q3FY24) – to be announced tomorrow – is likely to be 6.8 percent, assuming no changes to the base figures. However, there is potential for it to reach 7 percent in case of any downward revisions in the GDP growth figures for the third quarter of the fiscal year 2023 (Q3FY23). These revisions in the previous year's data could positively impact the current year's growth figures.

As per the report, the CLI Index (a basket of 41 leading indicators which include parameters from almost all the sectors) based on monthly data shows a slight moderation in economic activity in Q3. Factoring the slight decline in economic activity in Q3 FY24, it estimates GDP should grow in the range of 6.7-6.9 percent with a Gross Value Added (GVA) growth of 6.6 percent.

According to the government’s first estimates, the Indian economy will grow at 7.3 percent in FY24, faster than the RBI’s upwardly revised estimate of 7 percent. The World Bank expects the Indian economy to grow 6.3 percent in FY24, while the International Monetary Fund (IMF) recently revised its estimate from 6.3 percent to 6.5 percent.

Sensex Today Live : India's coal imports to fall for first time since the COVID-19 pandemic amid record-high stockpiles

Sensex Today Live : India's thermal coal imports are expected to fall for the first time this year since the COVID-19 pandemic due to increasing domestic output and record-high inventories, industry officials said on Tuesday.

Out of eleven coal traders Reuters spoke with at the Coaltrans India conference in the western state of Goa, eight expected shipments of the fuel to decrease this year, while the others foresaw flat imports or marginal growth.

Surging production and supplies by the world's largest miner Coal India have pushed stockpiles at power plants to record highs of over 43 million metric tons, prompting it to sell more to non-power sector users such as sponge iron and aluminium smelters, which have traditionally imported the fuel.

Pawan Kumar, head of coal sourcing at power producer SEIL Energy India, said he expects thermal coal imports to fall over 3% to 170 million tons, while Rodrigo Echeverri, head of research at Noble Resources, forecast a near-6% decline.

India imported 176 million tons of thermal coal in 2023, driven mainly by power plants.

Sensex Today Live : JM Financial raises target price for Maruti Suzuki as trend seems shifting to hybrid vehicles amid EV deceleration

Sensex Today Live : Maruti Suzuki India is likely to be a key beneficiary as customer preference seems to be gradually shifting towards hybrid vehicles from electric vehicles (EVs), analysts said. Maruti Suzuki India is working on multiple technologies, such as Hybrids, EVs, Flex-fuel and Biogas in addition to ICE and CNG as the company believes multiple technologies can co-exist in the medium-to-long term.

“The company had a foresight back then (when it launched CNG) and we believe its current tech-agnostic approach is again a well-thought-out approach against committing resources to a single technology," JM Financial said, adding that tax rationalization on Hybrids could act as a fillip and shift consumer preference towards this choice of powertrain. "Given the evolving global landscape and Maruti Suzuki’s tech-agnostic approach, we remain positive on the company," JM Financial said.

The brokerage firm maintained a ‘Buy’ rating on Maruti Suzuki shares and raised the target price to 13,000 per share from 12,250 earlier, implying an upside of over 13% from Tuesday’s closing price.

Sensex Today Live : This RBI circular could mean fewer ARCs to resolve toxic assets

Sensex Today Live : A RBI directive from October 2022 could potentially reduce the number of asset reconstruction companies in India, experts said, as these institutions try to meet the regulatory net owned funds requirement deadline in March.

The RBI had raised the minimum mandated net owned funds of asset reconstruction companies (ARCs) to 300 crore, from 100 crore at present. The regulator had offered a glidepath to reach 300 crore by 31 March 2026, with the target for March 2024 being set at 200 crore. Industry executives and external experts said this could prove detrimental for smaller ARCs that lack the ability to meet the NOF norms. (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : SBI Ecowrap report, says while corporate India has performed well, value added in agriculture may decline this year

Sensex Today Live : Corporate India has continued its robust performance buoyed by incrementally accelerating consumption patterns across urban-rural landscape.

Corporate results, as recorded from around 4,000 listed entities, for Q3FY24, shows robust growth of more than 30% in both EBIDTA and PAT, while top line grew by around 7% as compared to Q3FY23.

Sensex Today Live : Vodafone Idea share price falls over 4% after board approval to raise ₹45,000 crore

Sensex Today Live : Dr. Soumya Kanti Ghosh, Group Chief Economic Adviser, State Bank of India, says Q3FY24 GDP growth likely at 6.8% on an unchanged base; Could hit 7% on the back of likely downward revisions in Q3FY23 estimates, in the SBI Ecowrap report

Sensex Today Live : The likelihood of the global economy exhibiting stronger than expected growth in 2024 has brightened in recent months, with risks broadly balanced.

On the flip side though, both UK and Japan slipping into recession warrants return to drawing board.

Global complexity further gets clouded with the marked slowdown in China facing deflationary concerns now. The waning might of the mainland that has been battling tech and strategic isolation at world stage does not augur well for industrial and commodity demands for a world order limping back to normalcy in the short run at least.

As a counter narrative to the global gloom, consumer confidence has strengthened further in India, driven chiefly by optimism about the general economic situation and employment conditions. Various enterprise surveys also point towards strong business optimism.

The CLI Index (a basket of 41 leading indicators which includes parameters from almost all the sectors) based on monthly data shows a slight moderation in economic activity in Q3.

Factoring the slight decline in economic activity in Q3FY24, we estimate GDP should grow in the range of 6.7-6.9% with a GVA growth of 6.6%.

Sensex Today Live : What to expect from Indian stock market in trade on February 28

Sensex Today Live : The trends on Gift Nifty indicate a flat to positive start for the Indian benchmark index. The Gift Nifty was trading around 22,235 level as compared to the Nifty futures’ previous close of 22,196.

On Tuesday, the Indian stock market indices rebounded from a two-day correction and ended higher.

The Sensex gained 305.09 points to close at 73,095.22, while the Nifty 50 settled 76.30 points, or 0.34%, higher at 22,198.35.

Nifty 50 formed a reasonable positive candle on the daily chart that has engulfed the small negative candle of Monday.

“Technically, this market action is signaling a bullish engulfing pattern. But, the placement of the pattern is not convincing to call this as an important bullish reversal pattern. The near-term uptrend status of Nifty remains positive and bullish chart pattern like higher tops and bottoms are also intact. At the same time, the market is not gaining strength to witness an upside breakout of 22,200 - 22,300 levels decisively," said Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.
