Sensex Today Live : Elara Securities India sees FY24E CAD at 1.1% of GDP, down from earlier estimate of 1.3%

Amid emerging trends for both merchandise and services exports and imports, we revise FY24E CAD to 1.1% from 1.3% earlier.

Key risk to our call is from supply chain dislocation due to geopolitical crisis, which may hit merchandise exports.

Services exports have shown surprising resilience amid gradually improving GCC exports. For FY25E we retain CAD estimate at 1.4% of GDP and USDINR FY25E projection at 81.5.

Comfortable external sector dynamics lend additional support to USDINR, which has seen appreciation bias in CY24. Expect this to continue till end FY24E and see it trade in a narrow range of 82.9-83.1 for the rest of FY24.

Benign oil price, robust flows and relative macro stability versus other EM peers add to the positive outlook for the pair. However, resilience of the DXY on the back of repricing of rate cut expectations towards higher for longer narrative is a key headwind.

External ratios comfortable; flows mixed

Demand for Indian debt is intact with CYTD inflows at USD 4.3bn versus USD 4.7bn in Q4CY23.

Sensex Today Live : General Elections 2024 Stock Picks: IRCTC, SBI among top 10 picks for this season; to offer 10-20% potential upside

Lok Sabha elections act as one of the key triggers which significantly impacts the market volatility based on corporate announcements, sentiment changes and results of pre-poll surveys. This year’s general election has gained heightened prominence due to India's importance in geopolitics, position in emerging markets, and a contest for PM Modi to form government for the third consecutive term.

According to domestic brokerage firm Shriram Way2Wealth, the reason behind equity markets following the elections, is the fact that investors anticipate a strong capex momentum to continue with PM Modi-led government. ‘’This would bolster investor sentiments and may result in continued rally in PSU sector on the back of rerating seen previously and policy continuation,'' said the brokerage in its report.

They might predict Prime Minister Narendra Modi's re-election and focus on five stocks that could gain from the Bharatiya Janata Party's return to power, often choosing those aligned with the Modi government's popular initiatives like ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’, ‘Make in India’, and similar themes.

Equity benchmarks extended gains over third consecutive session tracking firm global cues. The index recouped initial losses and gradually witnessed range bound activity. As a result, daily price action formed a small bull candle, indicating follow through strength. Meanwhile, shadows on either side signifies rise in volatility

The index has resumed uptrend after undergoing slower pace of retracement above 50 days EMA, highlighting inherent strength that makes us confident to reiterate our positive stance and expect index to challenge the life highs of 22124 in the coming month. In the process, bouts of volatility owing to global development would offer incremental buying opportunity. Thereby, we advise to adopt buy on dips strategy which has been faring well.

Structurally, over past eight sessions Nifty retraced 61.8% of preceding seven sessions up move (21137–22126), indicating slower pace of retracement. The bottom up approach of Nifty 50 component highlights robust price structure that bodes well for next leg of up move.

Despite host of negative news index has managed to hold 50 days EMA and undergone base formation that makes us confident to revise support base at 21400 as it is confluence of:

50% retracement of mid Dec-Jan rally (20508-22124)

50 days EMA is placed at 21385
