| Share Market Updates: Indian shares closed more than a per cent higher on Wednesday, tracking a jump in global stocks, after softer-than-expected U.S. inflation data fuelled hopes of an end to the rate-hiking cycle in the world's largest economy.

Asian shares surged higher on Wednesday, cheered by a rally on Wall Street that was one of the best days of the year following a surprisingly encouraging report on inflation.

Geopolitical risks continue to persist due to the Israel-Hamas war, but so far, it has had limited impact on the market movement.

The markets rallied after an unexpected inflation slowdown in the US bolstered bets the Federal Reserve’s aggressive hiking cycle is now over — and the next move will be a cut in mid-2024.

Stocks in Asia rallied after an unexpected slowdown in US inflation bolstered bets that the Federal Reserve’s aggressive hiking cycle is over. Treasuries steadied following a surge in the previous session.

Japan's Nikkei share average jumped, topping the 33,000 psychological level for the first time in nearly two months, on strong corporate earnings and bets for a more dovish U.S. Federal Reserve. The Nikkei finished the day up 2.52%. The broader Topix added 1.19%.

Chinese stocks rebounded and Hong Kong shares surged as traders cheered cooling U.S. inflation data, which is likely to bring an end to the Federal Reserve's rate hikes.

China's blue-chip CSI 300 Index rose 0.7%, while the Shanghai Composite Index advanced 0.6%. Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index jumped 3.9%, marking its best day in nearly four months. Tech firms rallied 4.4% to lead the gains.

European stocks rose as investors cheered slowing inflation across major economies, bolstering bets of an end to central bank policy tightening.

The UK's benchmark indexes rose on track for a three-day win streak as cooler-than-expected October inflation data lifted sentiment, while a rise in prices of most commodities pushed mining and energy stocks higher.

Sensex Today Live: Hong Kong Ousts Dubai as Biggest Hub for Russian Gold Trade

Shut out of London following the invasion of Ukraine, Russian gold trading switched to Dubai. Now it’s shifting again, to the bullion hub of Hong Kong.

The city has long been a key conduit for bullion entering the Chinese mainland — the world’s biggest consumer market — but since April, Russian shipments surged. Hong Kong imported 68 tons of Russian gold this year, four times as much as the whole of 2022.

The shift to Hong Kong was driven by US sanctions on Russia’s top gold miners, as well as a crackdown by the United Arab Emirates on illicit activities in its bullion market, according to people familiar with the matter. The move east underlines the challenge faced by the West in curbing resource flows that fund the Kremlin’s war machine. (Bloomberg)

Sensex Today: India to emerge as third largest global economy by 2027: FM

Sensex Today: Mint Snapview: India's growth story is based on economic strength, not BJP winning elections

Brokerage house Morgan Stanley has said that it expects heightened volatility in India's stock market after poll results are declared in December for five states, “especially if the BJP loses a majority of those states". Volatility, the report suggests, could shoot up again after that if “in the 2024 general elections the opposition alliance, called I.N.D.I.A., succeeds in polarizing voters, thus reducing the predictability of the outcome in May next year".

Yet, the first term of the UPA government saw unprecedented GDP growth of more than 9% year after year, with stock market returns recovering smartly, proving the initial fears of investors to be a momentary overreaction. (Read More)

Sensex Today: Geojit Financial Services views on today's market: Leading financials which were weighed down by FII selling will bounce back

Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: The October US inflation data is a game changer for the stock market. The 3.2% October inflation print is lower than expected. More importantly, the mere 0.2% MoM increase in core inflation is hugely positive. The takeaway from these numbers is that the Fed is done with rate hikes and the timeline for rate cuts in 2024 is likely to be advanced. The sharp recovery in US markets will be reflected in India, too. Short covering can add to the rally. FIIs are likely to turn buyers, lest they miss out on the rally in the best performing large economy in the world. Leading financials which were weighed down by FII selling will bounce back.

Decline in CPI inflation in India is also a favourable factor. Across sectors, a rally is likely. Financials, automobiles, real estate ,cement and platform digital companies will attract investment from DIIs, HNIs and retail investors. The tug of war between FIIs and DIIs is clearly in favour of DIIs."

Sensex Today Live: UBS Is Calling Time on Indian Stocks’ Outperformance Over China

Chinese equities are set to outperform Indian peers next year as their battered valuations suggest significant upside potential once sentiment turns, according to UBS Group AG.

Stocks in China have currently priced in “lots of negatives," making them poised for a sharp rebound when catalysts arrive, said Sunil Tirumalai, UBS’ global emerging market strategist. Meanwhile, earnings-based valuations for Indian shares are already at “fairly extreme levels."

Additional stimulus measures from Beijing and improving geopolitical relations can provide “positive sustained market reaction" for China, he said in an interview last week. “So probabilistically speaking, I think the chances of China outperforming India are high." (Bloomberg)

Sensex Today: Pfizer to cut 500 jobs at Kent site in UK, roles to be moved to India, US: report

Pfizer Inc. is cutting 500 jobs at its Sandwich, Kent site in the UK as part of a cost-cutting effort, a report by Sky News said on Tuesday.

Sensex Today Live: Oil Steady With Differing Views From IEA, OPEC Clouding Outlook

Oil steadied after a short-lived relief rally as the market digested differing views on the supply and demand outlooks, while an industry report pointed to an expansion in US stockpiles.

West Texas Intermediate traded near $78 a barrel, while global benchmark Brent was above $82. The International Energy Agency said global oil markets won’t be as tight as expected this quarter, with production growth in the US and Brazil beating forecasts. That came after an assessment from OPEC that highlighted robust growth trends and healthy fundamentals.

Oil fell sharply since mid-October as the Israel-Hamas war risk premium evaporated and doubts set in about the demand outlook, before rising in the three days through Monday. It’s lacked direction since then, with longer-term worries over the health of the global economy balanced by shorter-term indicators that still show the market is in deficit. (Bloomberg)

Sensex Today: As far as I know, all Religare shareholders support us: Mohit Burman

Mohit Burman, Member, Burman Family and Chairman, Dabur India, is unfazed by the Religare Enterprises Ltd board's resistance to his family's open offer, after initially welcoming it. He says that acquiring Religare will add a crucial piece to the Burman family's growing bouquet of financial products and that the company needs a promoter to re-enter the lending business.

In a lengthy interview conducted over two days, Burman stopped short of commending Religare chairperson Rashmi Saluja for the company's recovery while giving "full marks" to the management team for the turnaround. Burman also said his group contributed to the recovery. "Hopefully, all shareholders will support our offer," Burman said. (Read More)

Sensex Today Live: ASK Automotive IPO listing date today. GMP, experts predict 'decent' debut of shares

The initial public offering (IPO) of ASK Automotive Limited is scheduled to be listed today, on November 15, 2023. This information is confirmed by the official website of the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). The BSE notice indicates that the listing of ASK Automotive IPO will occur during a special pre-open session within Wednesday's trading activities.

Speaking on ASK Automotive IPO listing, Avinash Gorakshkar, Head of Research at Profitmart Securities said, "Fundamentals of ASK Automotive Limited is attractive but its valuations are slightly higher. Apart from this, the issue is 100 per cent OFS, which may limit the listing premium for allottees. But, the company is in auto segment and the segment is expected to continue doing well in medium to short term. So, one can expect 8-10 per cent listing gain from the public offer." (Read More)

Sensex Today: Wall Street soars on Tuesday as cooling inflation raises hopes for an end to rate hikes

Relief washed over Wall Street Tuesday, and stocks leaped to one of their best days of the year following a surprisingly encouraging report on inflation.

The S&P 500 jumped 1.9% for its best day since April and hit a two-month high. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied 489 points, or 1.4%, while the Nasdaq composite charged 2.4% higher.

The highly anticipated report showed not only that overall inflation slowed last month, but so did a key underlying figure that economists see as a better indicator of future trends. The slowdown bolstered bets on Wall Street that inflation is cooling enough for the Federal Reserve to finally be done with its market-crunching hikes to interest rates.

Such hopes lifted all kinds of investments, and more than 90% of the stocks in the S&P 500 climbed in a widespread rally.

Technology and other high-growth stocks tend to get some of the biggest boosts from easier rates, and a 2.3% rise for Amazon and 2.1% lift for Nvidia were two of the strongest forces pushing the S&P 500 upward. (AP)
