Market Close Highlights : Global shares traded around one-month highs on Tuesday, boosted by renewed confidence in U.S. interest rate cuts, while a weaker yen and small dip in the Australian dollar kept the dollar steady.

Last week saw a dramatic swing in investor expectations for the U.S. interest rate outlook. Market pricing went from showing even one rate cut in 2024 looking less likely to almost two being priced in by Friday, after monthly employment data suggested the labour market is softening.

A hefty sell-off in U.S. stocks early in the week, accelerated by volatile earnings, reversed, sending the benchmark S&P 500 index up by the most in a day since February after Friday's payrolls report, and adding to gains on Monday.

On Tuesday, U.S. futures pointed to a steady start later on, while stocks in Europe caught a bid from the banks, where UBS and Unicredit beat expectations, sending the STOXX 600 up 0.6%.

MSCI's All-World index was up 0.1%, around its highest since April 10.

The "Fed put" refers to a belief among investors that the central bank will step in to support the economy and financial markets in times of turmoil.

Futures show traders believe U.S. rates will drop by around 45 basis points this year, from 5.25-5.50% right now. This time last week, just 28 bps were priced in.

The mood set by last week's softer-than-expected U.S. jobs data was further underpinned by remarks from Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell reiterating that the next move in rates will be lower.

Treasuries, which rallied on Friday's jobs figures, traded steady in New York overnight and 10-year yields held at 4.49% in Tokyo on Tuesday. Interest rates markets price at least one U.S. rate cut this year, in November.

Demand will be tested at a $58 billion three-year note auction on Tuesday, which is followed by $42 billion in 10-year sales on Wednesday and $25 billion of 30-year sales on Thursday.

Expectations of falling rates have weighed on the dollar, though only gently. European policymakers are readying cuts for June, capping the euro, and rates are not expected to move too far above zero in Japan this year, leaving a wide gap with the rest of the world.

The dollar rose 0.6% on the yen on Monday and a further 0.3% to 154.31 yen on Tuesday, keeping markets on edge as to whether Japanese authorities may step in again.

In commodities, oil held steady, with Brent crude futures up 0.1% to $83.41 a barrel with a ceasefire deal in the Middle East proving elusive. Gold edged down 0.2% to $2.319 an ounce, still within sight of recent record highs.

Wheat, corn and soybean traded around multi-month highs on worries about unfavourable weather in Russia - where it has been frosty and dry - and Brazil, where there are floods.

Sensex Today Live : Swarnendu Bhushan, Co. Head of Research , Institutional Equities, Prabhudas Lilladher, recommends to 'REDUCE' Gujarat Fluorochemicals, citing sluggish volumes and prices for specialty chemicals

Sensex Today Live : Gujarat Fluorochemicals Rating: REDUCE | CMP: 3,638 | TP: 3,120

Gujarat Fluorochemicals consolidated revenue from operations was at 11.3 bn (-23% YoY/ 14.2% QoQ), QoQ improvement was primarily led by Fluoro Polymers and Fluoro Chemicals. Even though, the plants for the Bulk Chemicals segment ran at full capacity, the segment saw a 1% QoQ decline in revenue due to subdued prices of Caustic Soda/MDC.

Looking ahead to FY25, challenges loom for the Fluorochemicals segment, factors such as dumping from China, duty cuts in the US market impacting Refrigerants, and the phase-out of R-22 are anticipated to exert pressure on volumes and prices.

Fluoropolymer capacities setup in FY24 are expected to fuel a continuous increase in sales with enhanced utilization levels. Additionally, progress in the Battery Chemical vertical is promising, with the LiPF6 plant already commissioned, commercial sales expected from H2FY25 upon customer approval.

The stock is trading at 65x FY25 EPS. We downgrade the company to “REDUCE" from “HOLD" previously, with target price of 3,402, valuing it at 40x FY26 EPS.

Sensex Today Live : Elara Securities India recommends to 'ACCUMULATE' Birla Corporation citing continued premiumisation and operating performance coming along expected lines

Sensex Today Live : Birla Corporation Rating: ACCUMULATE 

Target Price : 1,824 

Upside : 18% 

CMP : 1,544 (as on 06 May 2024)

We believe further ramp-up of Maharashtra-based Mukutban operations bodes well for near-term volume growth whereas gradual completion of ongoing growth capex is likely to support volume growth. Also, lower fuel prices, rise in share of renewables power, increased production from captive coal mines and other cost savings initiatives bode well for margin. Thus, we reiterate Accumulate.

We increase our EBITDA ~1% each for FY25E and FY26E and rollover to March 2026E from December 2025E. Thus, we increase our TP to 1,824 from 1,740 based on 8x (unchanged) March 2026E EV/EBITDA.

Sensex Today Live : Elara Securities India downgrades Go Fashions to 'REDUCE' from 'BUY', says subdued demand to restrict growth

Sensex Today Live : Go Fashions Rating: REDUCE 

Target Price : 1,005 

Downside : 4% 

CMP : 1,043 (as on 03 May 2024) 

We lower our EPS by 21.9% for FY25E and 26.6% and FY26E. Although we expect GOCOLORS to withstand competition and retain its market leadership, weak demand may restrict revenue growth and margin expansion. 

We expect a PAT CAGR of 2.8% during FY24-26E. We lower our DCF-based TP to 1,005 from 1,369 based on 60x (unchanged) FY26E P/E. 

We downgrade the stock to Reduce from Buy on limited visibility on near-term demand recovery. Key upside risk is strong rebound in apparels consumption.

Sensex Today Live : What to expect from Indian stock market in trade on May 7

Sensex Today Live : The Indian stock market, represented by Sensex and Nifty 50, is anticipated to start Tuesday on a positive note, mirroring gains in global markets. The Gift Nifty's trends also suggest a promising start for the Indian benchmark index, trading around the 22,585 level, nearly 35 points above the previous close of Nifty futures. 

Monday's trading session concluded with mixed results amidst volatility in the domestic equity benchmark indices. The Sensex rose slightly by 17.39 points to close at 73,895.54, while the Nifty 50 dipped by 33.15 points (0.15%) to settle at 22,442.70. 

The Nifty 50 chart formed a small negative candle next to the previous session's long bear candle. This pattern suggests a sell-on-rise opportunity within a range-bound action. The Nifty is currently at the support levels of 22,400 - 22,300 and is not sustaining its intraday upside bounces. The larger degree of higher tops and bottoms is in play. Despite a sharp decline from the new higher top of 22,794 levels on Friday, the Nifty shows weakness down to the formation of a new higher bottom of the pattern. However, a higher bottom reversal is yet to be confirmed, according to Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities. (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : Seven key things that changed for market overnight - Gift Nifty, Japan Services PMI to oil prices

Sensex Today Live : Indian equity indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, are poised for a positive start on Tuesday, buoyed by encouraging global market trends. Asian markets are performing well, and US stocks closed positively, fueling optimism for potential US Federal Reserve interest rate cuts this year. Market participants anticipate a 46 basis point reduction in rates by the end of 2024, with the initial cut likely in September or November, as per LSEG's rate probability app. 

Monday's trading session saw mixed results in the Indian stock market amidst high volatility. The Sensex marginally rose by 17.39 points (0.02%) to close at 73,895.54, while the Nifty 50 fell slightly by 33.15 points (0.15%) to settle at 22,442.70. 

The India VIX has surged over 70% in the past eight sessions, from around 10 to nearly 17, its 52-week high. This reflects growing investor anxiety due to ongoing global uncertainties and the upcoming Lok Sabha election results. Consequently, markets are expected to stay within a broader range, with individual stock movements likely in the short term, according to Siddhartha Khemka, Head of Retail Research at Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.

Sensex Today Live : Indian markets likely to have gap-up open, led by buoyant global peers

Sensex Today Live : Markets in India were likely to start on a postive note, following gains in global peers that were buoyant on the back of expectations that the US Federal Reserve would cut rates sooner rather than later. 

Even the Gift Nifty futures were trading at 22,593, around 150 points ahead of Nifty 50's Monday close of 22,442, when it had closed down 0.15% lower. 

Asian shares made 15-month highs on Tuesday on renewed confidence of U.S. interest rate cuts, while traders waited on a policy meeting in Australia later in the day and had a close eye on a falling yen. 

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.3% in early trade. Hong Kong shares traded marginally lower, having ridden a wave of heavy buying from mainland investors to lift the Hang Seng index more than 14% higher in a 10-day winning streak, its longest since 2018. 

Japan's Nikkei gained 1.3% and S&P 500 futures were steady after the cash index logged a 1% rise overnight. 

The mood was underpinned by last week's softer-than-expected U.S. jobs data and remarks from Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell reiterating that the next move in rates will be lower. 

Treasuries, which rallied on Friday's jobs figures, traded steady in New York overnight and 10-year yields held at 4.49% in Tokyo on Tuesday. Interest rates markets price at least one U.S. rate cut this year, in November. 

Demand will be tested at a $58 billion three-year note auction on Tuesday, which is followed by $42 billion in 10-year sales on Wednesday and $25 billion of 30-year sales on Thursday. 

Expectations of falling rates weighed on the dollar, except against the yen as Japanese rates are not expected to move too far above zero this year, leaving a wide gap. 

The dollar rose 0.6% on the yen on Monday and a further 0.2% to 154.17 yen on Tuesday, keeping markets on edge as to whether Japanese authorities may step in again. Traders estimate Japan spent almost $60 billion defending the yen last week. 

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) is widely expected to leave rates on hold at its policy meeting later on Tuesday, but focus will be on whether the tone or outlook shifts to explicitly include the possibility of hikes, following an inflation surprise. The Australian dollar was steady at $0.6637 in morning trade. Swaps market pricing implies a near even chance of a rate hike later this year in Australia. 

In commodity trade, oil was a tad firmer, with Brent crude futures up 0.3% to $83.58 a barrel with a ceasefire deal in the Middle East proving elusive. 

Gold rose overnight and was steady at $2,325 an ounce on Tuesday. 

Wheat, corn and soybean futures have surged to multi-month highs on worries about unfavourable weather in Russia - where it has been frosty and dry - and Brazil, where there are floods.

Iron ore futures have rallied on clues that China's Politburo is planning more support measures for the beleaguered property sector. Benchmark June iron ore on the Singapore Exchange has risen almost 25% in a month. German factory orders are the highlight of the European calendar on Tuesday.
