Market Close Highlights : The NSE F&O ban list for April 9 includes Bandhan Bank, SAIL, and Zee Entertainment Enterprises.

Market Close Highlights : Global shares were mixed on Tuesday ahead of this week's U.S. inflation reading and a crucial European Central Bank meeting, while industrial metals prices extended recent gains on expectations of a worldwide manufacturing rebound.

The pan-European STOXX 600 index fell 0.1% in early trade, while futures on Wall Street were muted.

"Stock markets seem to be in a holding pattern at the moment and I think that will continue until we get more clarity on inflation and the state of the economy," said Dan Boardman-Weston, CIO at BRI Wealth Management.

"Markets are waiting to see what the inflation print is and how that changes expectations for rate cuts going forward." Expectations for U.S. rate cuts have been receding this year on the back of robust economic data and sticky inflation readings.

Traders are now pricing around 62 basis points (bps) of cuts from the Federal Reserve in 2024, implying around two or three quarter-point cuts, down from around 150 bps at the start of the year.

It's a similar story in Europe, where the focus is on Thursday's ECB policy announcement, with markets expected to scour comments from President Christine Lagarde for hints that rates could be cut in June.

Meanwhile, industrial metals prices extended their gains on Tuesday amid expectations of a worldwide manufacturing rebound, while shares in the Asia-Pacific region rose.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan increased 0.6%. Japan's Nikkei 225 rose 1.1%

In Shanghai, the most-traded May copper futures rose more than 1% to a record high, while zinc and tin made multi-month peaks and aluminium traded just below Monday's two-year top. Even iron ore, battered by China's property downturn, steadied above $100 a tonne in Singapore.

"It's pretty much a China bet," said Vishnu Varathan, head of economics at Mizuho Bank in Singapore.

On Monday, data showed German industrial production rose more than expected in February. Last week, data showed U.S. manufacturing growing for the first time in one-and-a-half years. China's manufacturing activity expanded for the first time in six months in March.

Meanwhile, spot gold hit another record high, supported by central bank buying and heightened geopolitical tensions, according to BRI's Boardman-Weston. "I think the rally may continue in the short-term," he said.

Sensex Today Live : Swarnendu Bhushan, Co. Head of Research, Prabhudas Lilladher, gives Q4 earnings preview for Chemicals sector; says sequential recovery expected

Sensex Today Live : "Specialty chemical companies within our coverage are anticipated to report another challenging quarter, with 8/28/38% YoY drop in Rev/EBITDA/PAT.

These declines are primarily attributed to sustained demand pressure and reduced realization stemming from Chinese dumping. However, we anticipate a modest improvement on a sequential basis for most companies within our universe, as the destocking nears completion and some gradual improvement in the realization is witnessed for a few chemicals.

Despite this short-term relief, the chemical sector is expected to face continued strain. This is largely due to China's ongoing capacity expansions and the anticipated increase in capacity utilization within the EU27, which will further dampen demand and prices."

Sensex Today Live : Tushar Chaudhari, Research Analyst - Institutional Equities, Prabhudas Lilladher, gives Q4 earnings preview update on cement sector; says weak pricing likely to impact profitability

Sensex Today Live : We expect our cement coverage universe to report Revenue/EBITDA/PAT growth of ~15%/3%/-1% QoQ (~8%/17%/0% YoY) given strong sequential volume growth aided by demand improvement since mid-quarter.

Top Picks:

ACC: ACC will be a key beneficiary given parent’s focus on cost optimisation and volume growth. As Adani group is working on capacity expansion as well as margin improvement projects like WHRS, green energy and improving logistics efficiencies; we believe delta in margin improvement is higher for ACC.

Dalmia: We believe Dalmia is expected to deliver strong volume growth on weak 1H base and expect over 30% sequential volume growth in 4Q as company plans to regain its lost market share in earlier quarters. Dalmia valuations are attractive given its focus on volume growth, cost optimisation and improving market share.

Ultratech: UTCEM is well placed to capitalize on strong volume growth in domestic markets given a) its ongoing brownfield expansions expected to take its total grey cement producing capacity to ~192 mtpa by FY26E; b) rising focus on green energy to reduce power & fuel costs and c) strong balance sheet with 7 bn net cash by FY26E to keep avenues of inorganic growth open.

Share Market Today Live : What to expect from Indian stock market in trade on April 9

Share Market Today Live : The Sensex and Nifty 50, India's stock market indices, are projected to open on a high note on Tuesday, building on the gains from Monday's rally. The Gift Nifty trends also suggest a positive start for the Indian benchmark index, trading around the 22,845 level, which is over 95 points premium from the previous close of Nifty futures.

On Monday, the domestic equity market concluded on a strong note, with the benchmark indices reaching new record highs. The Sensex increased by 494.28 points to close at 74,742.50, while the Nifty 50 rose by 152.60 points (0.68%) to settle at 22,666.30. The Nifty 50 chart formed a reasonably positive candle with a gap-up opening.

Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, commented on the technical pattern, "This pattern suggests a positive outlook for the market moving forward. Despite the Nifty reaching new highs, there is no indication of any reversal pattern forming at these levels. The positive chart patterns, such as higher tops and bottoms, remain intact according to the daily chart, and the current upward movement aligns with the formation of a new higher top in the pattern. However, there is no confirmation of any higher top reversal completing at these highs." (Read the full story here.)

Share Market Today Live : Six key things that changed for market overnight - Gift Nifty, US treasury yields to oil prices

Share Market Today Live : Following a positive trend in Asian markets, India's domestic equity market indices are expected to continue their upward trajectory and open higher on Tuesday. Despite a volatile session, the US stock market managed to close flat overnight.

Investors are now eagerly awaiting the minutes from the US Federal Reserve's policy meeting and crucial US inflation data, which will provide further insights into potential interest rate cuts.

Dhiraj Relli, MD & CEO at HDFC Securities, commented on the market's performance, "Following an impressive FY24, Indian equity markets continue to reach new heights. The anticipation of a positive outcome from the upcoming general elections and the potential policy implications are keeping market sentiments high. Encouraging monthly and yearly data announcements, along with operational and order updates from companies, are driving stock-specific purchases. However, the broader market is lagging, and investors should exercise caution when investing in small and mid-cap stocks without thorough due diligence." (Read the full story here.)

Stock Market Today Live : Gaining Asian peers, Gift Nifty futures indicate strong open for Indian markets

Stock Market Today Live : Markets in India were expeceted to open on a positive note, following gains in Asian peers, with a focus on industrial metal company stocks.

In India, at 8:16 am, Gift Nifty futures were trading at 22,830, more than 150 points ahead of Nifty 50's Monday close of 22,666.30, indicating a robust opening for Indian benchmark indices that were likely to test fresh all-time highs in Tuesday's trading session.

Industrial metals prices extended their gains on Tuesday with expectations of a worldwide manufacturing rebound, while Asian shares crept up a little more cautiously ahead of this week's U.S. inflation data and a crucial European Central Bank meeting.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose 0.2%. Japan's Nikkei rose 0.6%.

Shanghai copper futures were up 1% at a two-year high and have gained more than 10% in a month. Zinc made a five-month high in Shanghai, where Aluminium made a 22-month peak on Monday.

Even iron ore, battered by China's property downturn, steadied above $100 a tonne in Singapore.

On Monday, data showed German industrial production rising more than expected in February.

Last week, data showed U.S. manufacturing growing for the first time in one-and-a-half years. China's manufacturing activity expanded for the first time in six months in March.

Precious metals have been soaring, too, with gold hovering just below a record high of $2,353 hit on Monday. Spot gold has risen nearly 14% this year.

Silver hit its highest since mid-2021 on Monday and platinum has also shot higher. Brent crude is below recent peaks but clinging above $90 a barrel at $90.62.

Chinese stocks have not joined the party, though Hong Kong's Hang Seng was 1.2% higher in early trade and China proxies such as the Antipodean currencies have been rallying.

For global stock markets, bonds and currencies, the main focus this week is on U.S. inflation data due on Wednesday and the European Central Bank meeting on Thursday.

Expectations for U.S. rate cuts have been evaporating and where in January markets had expected more than 150 basis points in cuts, investors now are not even sure of half that many.

Annualised headline U.S. inflation is seen rising to 3.4% in March from 3.2% a month earlier. U.S. two-year yields, which track short-term interest rate expectations, are their highest since late November at 4.801%, while ten-year yields also hit 2024 highs of 4.46% on Monday.
