Sensex Today Live : 'Hindenburg report tried to shake our foundation but...': Gautam Adani recalls rout prompted by US short seller

Sensex Today Live : In a speech in Mumbai, Gautam Adani, Chairman of the Adani Group, stated that the conglomerate remained unshaken despite attempts by US-based short seller Hindenburg Research to destabilize it. He emphasized that the report was not only an attack on the Adani Group but also an attempt to politically tarnish India's governance practices.

"On January 24 last year, we faced a significant assault from a US short seller. The aim was not merely to unsettle us, but also to politically discredit India's governance practices. Despite attempts to undermine our foundation, we held our ground, not only preserving our reputation but also ensuring that we stayed concentrated on our operations," he articulated.

Sensex Today Live : What to expect from Indian stock market in trade on March 14

Sensex Today Live : The Indian stock market indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, are projected to continue their downward trend on Thursday, following a significant decline in the previous session and influenced by mixed signals from international markets.

The Gift Nifty trends also suggest a pessimistic opening for the Indian benchmark index. The Gift Nifty was observed trading around the 22,048 mark, nearly 60 points lower than the previous close of Nifty futures.

On Wednesday, the domestic equity indices experienced a steep decline of more than a percent due to widespread selling across sectors, resulting in the benchmark Nifty 50 closing below the 22,000 mark.

The Nifty 50 formed a long bearish candle on the daily chart, moving below the immediate support of the 10/20 day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) and also the uptrend line as per the daily chart. (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : Six key things that changed for market overnight - Gift Nifty, FII selling to crude oil price rally

Sensex Today Live : The local stock market is predicted to start cautiously on Thursday, following a significant sell-off in the previous session and mixed signals from global markets.

While Asian markets remained subdued, US stock indices showed mixed results overnight as investors awaited further data on inflation and consumer health to gauge the future course of the US Federal Reserve's policy.

Investors are keenly awaiting the release of data on India's wholesale inflation and US producer prices today. On Wednesday, Indian stock market indices fell by over a percent due to widespread selling across sectors, with mid and small caps suffering the most.

"Markets couldn't sustain their momentum due to heavy selling in mid and small-cap stocks. The ongoing scrutiny from SEBI, the pending outcome of the MF stress test, and high valuations after the recent rally led to profit booking. We anticipate the market's sluggishness to persist in the near term, with Nifty's major support around the 21,500 zone. A key event to monitor is the release of India's WPI inflation data today," stated Siddhartha Khemka, Head of Retail Research at Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd. (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : Global peers, Gift Nifty muted; Indian markets to start on a cautious note

Sensex Today Live : With global markets trading in muted tones and following Wednesday's lower close, the Indian markets too looked poised to start on a cautious note on Thursday.

In terms of numbers, Gift Nifty futures at 7:43 am, was trading marginally ahead of Wednesday's Nifty 50 close of 21,997.70. But this is hardly any consolation, as markets globally look to find firm footing ahead of a barrage of data scheduled for release next week. Gift Nifty was at 22,055.50, down 2 points, or 0.01%, from its yesterday's close.

South Korean shares rose on Thursday, with automakers and financial stocks leading the gains, as the government vowed to speed up its corporate reform push.

The benchmark KOSPI rose 13.06 points, or 0.48%, to 2,706.63 by 0147 GMT.

Australian shares ticked lower on Thursday as financials dragged, offseting the gains in commodity stocks following a rebound in most underlying prices, while investors exercised caution ahead of key central banks' interest rate decisions.

The S&P/ASX 200 index inched down 0.1% at 7,721.3 by 0024 GMT. The benchmark rose 0.2% on Wednesday.

The Reserve Bank of Australia and the U.S. Federal Reserve are both scheduled to hold their respective monetary policy meetings next week, with markets expecting each central bank to hold its cash rate at its current level.

A gauge of global stock markets edged lower and U.S. Treasury yields rose modestly on Wednesday, as investors looked to the next round of data on inflation and consumer health for clues on the direction of Federal Reserve policy.

The S&P 500 fell slightly from its record close, weighed down by weakness in the tech sector.

The inflation data did little to alter expectations that the Federal Reserve will cut interest rates by at least 25 basis points (bps) at its June meeting, but gave a boost to U.S. Treasury yields, a trend which continued on Wednesday.

Investors will get another round of inflation data in the form of the U.S. producer price index (PPI) on Thursday, along with data on consumer spending and the labor market, before next week's Fed policy meeting.

On Wall Street, the rise in yields weighed on tech stocks and pulled the Nasdaq lower. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 37.83 points, or 0.10%, to 39,043.32, the S&P 500 lost 9.96 points, or 0.19%, to 5,165.31 and the Nasdaq Composite lost 87.87 points, or 0.54%, to 16,177.77.

MSCI's gauge of stocks across the globe fell 0.39 points, or 0.05%, to 775.32, after climbing within 0.15% of an intraday record.

The STOXX 600 index closed up 0.16%, adding to its record level, aided by retail stocks, while Europe's broad FTSEurofirst 300 index rose 3.83 points, or 0.19%.
