Sensex Today | Market Close Highlights : European shares inched lower on Friday, as the strength in telecommunications sector was offset by a sell-off in global equities after hotter than expected inflation figures from the U.S. hurt June rate-cut bets.

The pan-European STOXX 600 index was down 0.1%, as of 9:17 GMT, but looked set for its eighth consecutive week of gains.

U.S. stock index futures were little changed on Friday as investors braced for a Federal Reserve meeting next week that could provide clues on the timing of the central bank's interest-rate cuts.

Market participants are drawing relief from the recent slowdown in inflation in the euro zone, while remaining focused on upcoming economic data that could alter the rate-cut bets, as in the case of U.S.

Thursday's heated U.S. producer price numbers followed consensus-topping consumer inflation in the world's largest economy, eroding expectations of a June Fed rate cut.

Hong Kong shares declined while China stocks edged up on Friday after China's central bank left a key policy rate unchanged, while declining home prices dragged property shares lower.

Hong Kong's benchmark Hang Seng closed down 1.4%, and the Hang Seng China Enterprises Index lost 1.5%.

China's Shanghai Composite Index edged up 0.2%, while the blue-chip CSI 300 Index gained 0.5%.

Meanwhile, data showed consumer prices in France rose slightly more than initially expected year-on-year in February, while Italian EU-harmonised consumer prices were up 0.8% in February from the year earlier.

Later in the day, investors will be on the look out for U.S. industrial production data for the month of February.

In other trading early Friday, U.S. benchmark crude oil lost 34 cents to $80.92 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Brent crude, the international standard, gave up 36 cents to $85.06 per barrel.

Gold prices on Friday rose 135 to 65,730 per 10 grams in futures trade as speculators created fresh positions on a firm spot demand.

On the Multi Commodity Exchange, gold contracts for April delivery traded higher 135, or 0.21 per cent, at 65,730 per 10 grams in a business turnover of 15,000 lots.

Globally, gold futures increased 0.18 per cent to USD 2,171.30 per ounce in New York.

Sensex Today Live : Better use of data could help small caps and their investors flourish

Sensex Today Live : While it's one thing for financial regulators to encourage caution by highlighting signs of over-speculation in any segment of the securities market, it's entirely different to categorize a group of stocks as inherently risky. A group of stocks encompasses various individual firms, some of which could potentially be the next Infosys, Kotak Mahindra Bank, or ITC. It would be unjust to group these potentially prosperous firms with failures like the forthcoming Satyam Computer or Dewan Housing Finance. It's essential to differentiate between the feasible and the unfeasible, separating the wheat from the chaff.

As for analysts, what steps could they take to gain a more accurate understanding of a company's actual financial health, barring the acquisition of clones of Charlie Munger or even Warren Buffet, who are reputedly adept at identifying promising investment opportunities?

Sensex Today Live : What to expect from Indian stock market in trade on March 15

Sensex Today Live : The Indian stock market indices are predicted to start lower on Friday, influenced by weak global market indicators. The trends on Gift Nifty also suggest a gap-down opening for the Indian benchmark index. The Gift Nifty was trading around the 22,152 level, showing a discount of over 100 points from the Nifty futures' previous closing.

On Thursday, the domestic benchmark equity indices made a significant recovery from lower levels and ended with substantial gains after experiencing a massive sell-off in the prior session. The Nifty 50 formed a reasonably positive candle on the daily chart, in addition to the long bear candle of the previous session, indicating a potential pullback rally in the market.

Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, stated, "Nifty is anticipated to encounter a strong obstacle at the mid and upper parts of Wednesday's long bear candle around the 22,175 and 22,450 levels respectively. The positive chart pattern of higher tops and bottoms remains intact, as Nifty has managed to create a new higher swing low of 21,905 levels so far on Wednesday." (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : Eight key things that changed for market overnight - Gift Nifty, US producer prices to oil price rally

Sensex Today Live : The domestic equity indices, Sensex and Nifty, are projected to commence lower on Friday due to the observed weakness in global markets.

Asian markets experienced a downturn, and the US stock market concluded lower overnight. This was triggered by US producer prices surpassing estimates, indicating that the US Federal Reserve might decrease the frequency of rate cuts this year.

On Thursday, the Indian stock market indices saw a sharp rebound, ending higher due to purchases in metals and energy stocks, with mid and smallcap indices outperforming the frontliners.

Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd, stated, "We anticipate the broader market volatility to persist in the near term. Hence, retail investors should view this correction as an opportunity to accumulate quality names in 3-4 tranches. We recommend a higher allocation towards largecaps as their valuations are comfortable along with steady growth prospects." (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : Gift Nifty flat; Souring mood globally signals tepid start for Indian Markets

Sensex Today Live : With sentiment souring globally, the Indian markets were also headed for a tepid start on Friday. This was borne out by the Gift Nifty futures that was trading nearly identical to Thursday's Nifty 50 close of 22,146.65.

At 8:10 am, Gift Nifty was trading at 22,148.28, only 2 points ahead of Nifty 50's Thursday close.

Asian stocks slumped on Friday, tracking tech-led declines on Wall Street overnight after hotter-than-forecast U.S. inflation knocked back bets for how soon and often the Federal Reserve will cut interest rates.

Crude oil slipped back after its overnight surge above $85 for the first time since November, and remained on track for a rally of nearly 4% this week.

Bitcoin edged back toward the all-time high reached on Thursday.

U.S. stock futures pointed marginally lower following a 0.29% decline in the S&P 500 on Thursday. However, the impact of a big sell off in chip-sector shares reverberated in Asian markets, weighing on stock indexes around the region.

Hong Kong's Hang Seng slid more than 1%, as did South Korea's Kospi.

Mainland Chinese blue chips, however, were little changed, despite the central bank's decision to forgo any easing in keeping the medium-term lending facility rate unchanged on Friday.

Japan's Nikkei eased 0.3%.

In cryptocurrencies, bitcoin added 1.4% to $71,650, climbing back toward the record high of $73,192.79 from the previous session.

Brent crude oil futures for May fell 41 cents, or 0.5%, to $85.01 a barrel. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude for April fell 32 cents, or 0.4%, to $80.94.
