Sensex Today | Share Market Live Updates:: Israel-Hamas skirmish and oil prices to cast their shadow in today's trading

Share Market Updates: Indices remained positive as Sensex and Nifty climbed 550 and 180 pts, respectively, on the back of a rally in Auto, Bank and Finance stocks. All sectoral indices ended in the green

Investors kept an eye on the developments in the Middle East and oil prices but hope of a pause in rate hikes boosted their sentiments.

India’s retail inflation likely dipped to 5.4% in September from 6.8% in August largely due to a correction in vegetable prices that had pushed up inflation in the preceding two months, showed a Mint poll of 18 economists.

Asian shares have climbed after Wall Street advanced on potentially encouraging news about interest rates, which have been dragging markets lower since the summer.

The International Monetary Fund warned on Tuesday that the world economy is losing momentum in the face of higher interest rates, the ongoing war in Ukraine and widening geopolitical rifts.

Indices jumped around 0.9% with Sensex ending above 66,000, while Nifty almost touched 19,700; Auto, Bank, and Metal shine  

Indian shares rebounded on Tuesday, in line with global stocks on easing U.S. rate worries, while investors kept tabs on the military conflict in the Middle East.

The NSE Nifty 50 index climbed 180 pts to close just below 19,700. The S&P BSE Sensex rose 560 pts to above 66,000, at 66,072. All major sectoral indexes logged gains.

High-weightage financials, banks, and metals rose while public sector banks rebounded from the previous session's loss. Pharma remained subdued in today's session and ended with marginal gains. Auto also gained more than a per cent. IT started the day with a drag but bounced back to end with gains.

Bharti Airtel, Kotak Bank, JSW Steel and Tata Motors topped the charts in today's rally. TCS and IndusInd Bank dropped marginally to end in the red.

Japan's Nikkei share average recorded its largest daily gain in nine months led by energy-related shares, as buoyant risk appetite spilled over from Wall Street and investors scooped up beaten-down stocks. The Nikkei closed 2.43% higher, posting its biggest daily gain since Jan. 18.

Chinese stocks declined as investors rushed to sell companies with exposure to the Middle East, while the Hong Kong market gained driven by dovish comments from U.S. Federal Reserve officials.

China's blue-chip CSI 300 Index dropped 0.75%, while the Shanghai Composite Index fell 0.70%. Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index rose 0.84%, and the Hang Seng China Enterprises Index climbed 0.90%.

European stocks rebounded sharply on Tuesday, as dovish comments from U.S. Federal Reserve policymakers and easing oil prices helped ease investor nerves after the conflict in the Middle East had sparked a rush to safe assets.

UK shares rebounded on Tuesday as a pullback in Treasury yields, following dovish comments from the U.S. Federal Reserve officials, eclipsed jitters on the Middle East conflict.

Sensex Today: Perspective on consistent and concurrent real estate demand boost sector confidence Shishir Baijal, Chairman & Managing Director, Knight Frank India

Shishir Baijal, Chairman & Managing Director, Knight Frank India on real estate demand boost sector: In the post-pandemic quarters, particularly following Q3 2021, a consistent and concurrent increase in demand has been observed across both the residential and commercial sectors. India's economy has demonstrated resilience in the post-pandemic era, establishing itself as a stable economic entity characterised by robust domestic business activity, contributing to sustained GDP growth.

Most listed players are concentrated in the residential sector which has seen an unprecedented growth in the recent quarters. The residential sector notably benefited from reduced interest rates and favorable governmental initiatives introduced during the pandemic aimed at promoting homeownership. Despite a rise in home loan rates, consumer inflation, and price escalations in recent quarters, the persistence of long-term economic stability and income security has ensured the continuity of momentum. It is worth noting, that the high-end segment (homes costing INR 10+ mn) of the housing market has experienced significant growth, resulting in a larger share of the premium housing segment within the overall home sales landscape.

Similarly, the office segment has experienced positive effects stemming from economic stability, as evidenced by the increasing prominence of India-facing businesses and domestic enterprises. Notably, Global Capabilities Centres (GCC) have made significant contributions to the demand for office spaces, further underscoring the strength and reliability of India's growth narrative."

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: World Bank suggests taxes on agri, real estate and retail sectors to infuse ₹3 trillion in Pakistan: Reports

The World Bank has suggested closing all tax exemptions and bringing agriculture, retail, and real estate under a tax bracket that can fetch three per cent of GDP in the cash-strapped Pakistan’s kitty, media reports said on Tuesday.

“The people in two major areas in the provincial jurisdiction — real estate and agriculture — had most of the untaxed wealth, which should be taxed by the provincial governments to be able to improve services and reduce the financial burden on the centre, which was financing these services," newspaper Dawn quoted WB’s Country Director Najy Benhassine and senior economist Tobias Haque as saying.

The lender has projected that if agriculture income and properties tax is enforced properly then it could fetch three per cent of GDP in the tax collection on an annual basis, equivalent to slightly over 3 trillion, the Dawn newspaper quoted Haque as saying. (PTI)

Sensex Today Live: IMF outlook worsens for a world economy left 'limping' by shocks like Russia's war

The world economy is losing momentum in the face of higher interest rates, the ongoing war in Ukraine and widening geopolitical rifts, the International Monetary Fund warned Tuesday.

The IMF said it expects global economic growth to slow to 2.9% in 2024 from an expected 3% this year. The forecast for next year is down a notch from the 3% it predicted back in July.

The deceleration comes at a time when the world has yet to fully mend from a devastating but short-lived COVID-19 recession in 2020. A series of shocks, including the pandemic and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, has slashed worldwide economic output by about $3.7 trillion over the past three years compared with pre-COVID trends.

“We see a global economy that is limping along," IMF chief economist Pierre-Olivier Gourinchas told reporters ahead of the IMF and World Bank’s fall meetings this week in Marrakech, Morocco. (AP)

Sensex Today Live: Indian inflation seen easing to 5.50% in Sept on softening food price rises- Reuters poll

Indian retail inflation likely eased to 5.50% last month, within the Reserve Bank of India's (RBI) tolerance band, on moderating food price rises and government subsidies that offset a surge in the cost of crude oil, a Reuters poll found.

The RBI kept monetary policy unchanged on Oct. 6 for a fourth consecutive meeting and signalled interest rates would remain high until inflation was closer to 4%, the midpoint of the central bank's 2-6% target range.

Rises in food prices, which make up about half the consumer price index (CPI), continue to cool from recent peaks after the Indian government enacted a series of measures to boost supply. (Reuters)

Sensex Today Live: Tight Supplies, Cold May Boost Gas Market Volatility, IEA Says

Global natural gas supplies remain tight, even with recent reductions in demand, so especially frigid weather this heating season raises the threat of more price swings, the International Energy Agency said.

Europe’s storage sites are nearly full — well ahead of schedule — but “this is no guarantee of stable prices throughout the season," the agency said in a market report Tuesday. “The risk of price volatility, particularly in the event of a cold winter, is cause for concern."

The region remains extremely sensitive to supply changes after losing most of its pipeline gas deliveries from Russia last year, which pushed prices to record levels. Recent events — from strikes at liquefied natural gas facilities in Australia to the outbreak of war in the Middle East — have sparked a rally in the benchmark contract. (Bloomberg)

Sensex Today Live: Geojit Financial Services views on today's market: Even though FIIs continue to sell in India, the intensity of selling is coming down

Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: The uncertainty associated with the Israel- Hamas war continues. It can take a turn for the worse if Israel starts ground operations in Gaza. The possibility of easing of tensions also cannot be ruled out since Hamas will bargain with the captured Israeli hostages. Unlike economic and market trends, geopolitical developments cannot be predicted. This uncertainty will weigh on markets.

On the economic front, there are some positive developments. The decline in the dollar index to 105.95 and the US 10-year bond yield falling to 4.65 from the recent high of 4.88 are positive developments for equity markets. Even though FIIs continue to sell in India, the intensity of selling is coming down. More importantly. DIIs are increasing their purchases.

Calibrated buying in small quantities in quality stocks in banking, automobiles, IT, capital goods and real estate/construction would be a good strategy for long-term investors.

The Indian rupee is likely to open marginally higher on Tuesday after a pullback in U.S. Treasury yields fuelled a broad uptick in Asian peers.

West Texas Intermediate traded near $86 a barrel after surging 4.3% on Monday, as markets reacted to fighting that started Saturday and reignited a conflict with broad repercussions across the region. Israel has announced its largest-ever mobilization of more than 300,000 army reservists as it attacked Gaza from the air and sea, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowing to “change the Middle East." Hamas threatened to execute hostages.

The conflict has ratcheted up oil’s volatility, following sizable swings over the past month as economic concerns weighed on a rally underpinned by supply cuts by Saudi Arabia and Russia. (Bloomberg)

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Oil prices climb following the latest Gaza war, but stocks rise with rate hopes

Oil prices climbed Monday on worries about violence in the Middle East. The stock market was less fearful, though, and flipped from early losses to gains.

The S&P 500 rose 27.16, or 0.6%, following some potentially encouraging news on interest rates, which have been dragging Wall Street mainly lower since the summer.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 197.07 points, or 0.6%, to 33,604.65, and the Nasdaq composite climbed 52.90, or 0.4%, to 13,484.24.

Stocks perked higher after two officials at the Federal Reserve suggested they may not need to raise interest rates again at their next meeting Nov. 1, because a jump in longer-term bond yields may be helping to cool inflation without further market-rattling hikes by the Fed.

That gave stocks some oxygen and helped them erase modest losses from the morning. The S&P 500 had sagged by as much as 0.6% in its first trading after Hamas launched a surprise attack against Israel, which then formally declared war.

The area under conflict is not home to major oil production, but fears that the fighting could spill into the politics around the crude market sent a barrel of U.S. oil up $3.59 to $86.38. Brent crude, the international standard, rose $3.57 to $88.15 per barrel. (AP)
