Market Close Highlights : European equities lost ground on Thursday, weighed down by elevated government bond yields after the U.S. Federal Reserve cut its interest rate cut projections to just one this year.

The continent-wide STOXX 600 was down 0.5% as of 0828 GMT, after closing around 1% higher in the previous session.

The Fed held interest rates steady on Wednesday and pushed out the start of rate cuts to perhaps as late as December, with the central bankers projecting only one quarter-point rate cut this year from three projected in March.

Bond yields across the euro zone rose, with the benchmark German 10-year bund yield last seen at 2.556%.

European equities have pulled back from last week's record highs hit on the back of the European Central Bank's rate cut, as investors assessed France's political uncertainty.

"The political situation is not supportive of appetite in the European stocks, and the uncertainty is pushing the European yields higher and they are growing wider from each other," said Ipek Ozkardeskaya, senior market analyst at Swissquote Bank.

Separately, global index compiler MSCI decided on Wednesday not to include the European Union's debt in its government bond indexes.

Most sectors traded lower, with rate-sensitive real estate down 0.6%.

Auto stocks lost 2% and led sectoral declines. Milan-listed shares of Stellantis fell 2.6% as the world's fourth-largest automaker maintained its 2024 financial forecasts.

The stock was among top losers on Italy's FTSE MIB index , which fell 1.1%.

Among other stocks, Wise sank 16.1% to the bottom of the STOXX 600 after the British money transfer company forecast a 15%-20% growth in its underlying income this year, a slowdown on the 31% seen in the year to end-March.

Shares of Lufthansa slid 5.2% as J.P.Morgan placed the German flagship carrier on a negative catalyst watch.

Meanwhile, BT gained 2.4% after Mexican magnate Carlos Slim took a 3.16% stake in Britain's largest broadband and mobile operator.

Sensex Today Live : Dr. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services, says the disinflation process is well on track

Sensex Today Live : "There is good news on the inflation front, both in the US and in India. In US May CPI inflation has declined slightly less-than-expected to 3.3% with MoM inflation remaining flat. However the economy continues to remain strong and there are no clear signs of labour market loosening. Therefore, the Fed chief Jerome Powell has kept rates unchanged and has hinted at only 1 rate cut in 2024 and possibly 4 rate cuts in 2025.

In India May CPI inflation has declined to 4.75% and core inflation has come at only 3.1%. This paves the way for a rate cut by the MPC in October.

The takeaway from the inflation numbers is that the disinflation process is well on track. From the market perspective, this is positive news, particularly for banking stocks."

Sensex Today Live : "BankNifty has been hovering and consolidating near the 50,000 zone for quite some time finding resistance near the 50,200 levels and support maintained near the 49,500 zone as of now. The near-term initial target of 51,000 level can be achieved once a breach above 50,200 zone is confirmed in the coming sessions.

BANKEX also witnessed a similar pattern consolidating and resisting near the 57,200 zone once again and remained almost rangebound for the rest of the session to end near 56,800 levels, gaining 149 points. The overall bias is maintained intact, but with a cautious approach, and as long as the 56,000 level is maintained, the positive trend shall continue, and we can expect a further rise in the coming days.

BankNifty would have the daily range of 49,600-50,400 levels, with Bankex support at 56,200 and resistance at 57,300 levels."

Sensex Today Live : Vaishali Parekh, Vice President - Technical Research, Prabhudas Lilladher, gives technical outlook for Nifty and Sensex

Sensex Today Live : "Nifty has witnessed a consolidation phase since the last 3 sessions with 23,400 zone acting as a tough barrier and would need a decisive breach above to trigger for further rise in the coming days. The major support zone for the index is maintained near the 22,800 levels while on the upside we can expect 23,800 level as the initial target in the coming sessions.

SENSEX also is hovering in the 76,300 and 77,100 zone finding resistance near the peak zone and would need a decisive breakout above this crucial levels for further continuation of the trend. At the same time, 75,000 zone is the crucial support zone breaking which can witness further slide on the downside to weaken the near term bias. The support for the day is seen at 76,200/23,200 levels while the resistance is seen at 77,200/23,500 levels."

Sensex Today Live : What to expect from Indian stock market in trade on June 13

Sensex Today Live : Tracking positive global market cues, the Indian stock market benchmark indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, are anticipated to open strong on Thursday. The Gift Nifty trends suggest a gap-up start for the Indian benchmark index, trading around the 23,460 level, nearly 100 points premium from the Nifty futures’ previous close.

On Wednesday, the domestic equity market closed higher, with the Nifty 50 ending above the 23,300 level. The Sensex rose by 149.98 points to close at 76,606.57, while the Nifty 50 increased by 58.10 points (0.25%) to settle at 23,322.95.

The Nifty 50 formed a small negative candle on the daily chart with an upper shadow. Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, explained that this pattern indicates a range-bound action in the market around the crucial hurdle of 23,400 - 23,500 levels. Such patterns typically result in a dip below the range movement. The overhead resistance of the key Fibonacci extension, the opening upside gap of 4th June, and the upward sloping resistance line remain intact around 23,400 - 23,500 levels. As long as this hurdle is not decisively overcome on the upside, a downward correction cannot be ruled out. (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : Eight key things that changed for market overnight - Gift Nifty, US Fed policy to inflation data

Sensex Today Live : Following positive global cues, the domestic equity benchmark indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, are projected to open higher on Thursday. Asian markets saw an uptrend, and US stocks mostly closed in the green, influenced by the US Federal Reserve’s policy decision and inflation data. The US central bank maintained interest rates for the seventh consecutive meeting and indicated a 25 basis points rate cut this year, which, along with softer than expected US inflation data, buoyed markets.

On Wednesday, the Indian stock market closed higher, primarily due to favourable global cues, with the Nifty 50 reaching a record high during the session. The Sensex rose by 149.98 points (0.20%) to close at 76,606.57, while the Nifty 50 increased by 58.10 points (0.25%) to settle at 23,322.95.

Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd, noted that the Nifty has been consolidating for the past three days due to the absence of fresh domestic triggers and is cautiously awaiting the US CPI and US Fed policy outcome. He added that the market is likely to consolidate in the near term with a positive bias. (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : Firm global peers to drive Indian markets higher today

Sensex Today Live : Indian benchmark indices were likely to open on a strong footing, driven by gains in global peers as the Federal Reserve's commentary regarding at least one rate cut in this year fuelled markets overnight around the world.

In India, Gift Nifty futures were trading at 23,452, more than a hundred points ahead of Wednesday's Nifty 50 close at 23,322.

The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq scored record closing highs for the third consecutive session on Wednesday and U.S. Treasury yields pared earlier declines as investors weighed a market-pleasing inflation report against lowered interest rate cut expectations.

The dollar shed some weakness after the U.S. Federal Reserve concluded its two-day policy meeting by leaving interest rates unchanged, and released its accompanying policy statement and Summary of Economic Projections (SEP).

The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq ended sharply higher, while the blue-chip Dow turned slightly negative toward the end of the session.

The more-hawkish-than-expected SEP seemed to contradict the Labor Department's closely watched CPI report released earlier in the day, which showed core prices growing at their slowest annual pace in over three years.

"It's a little disappointing to see this continued hawkishness, especially on the same day where you get one of the softest inflation reports in probably a couple of years," said Ross Mayfield, investment strategy analyst at Baird in Louisville, Kentucky. "The market is going to struggle a bit with how hawkish the Fed is in light of all of not only this morning's data, but last week’s as well."

In his press conference following the decision, Fed Chair Jerome Powell acknowledged that inflation has eased substantially but remains too high and rate-cut expectations have been pushed out due to slower-than-expected progress in bringing price growth down to the central bank's 2% goal.

"I think the main takeaway will be that the market was probably expecting the Fed to shift the dot plot from three cuts to two cuts," Mayfield added. "Instead it was shifted from three cuts to one cut, which on margin is a hawkish surprise."

Still, financial markets are pricing in a 61.5% likelihood of a 25-basis-point rate cut in September, up from 46.8% on Tuesday, according to CME's FedWatch tool.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 35.21 points, or 0.09%, to 38,712.21, the S&P 500 gained 45.71 points, or 0.85%, to 5,421.03 and the Nasdaq Composite added 264.89 points, or 1.53%, to 17,608.44.

European shares closed sharply higher after the CPI report and prior to the Fed's rate decision.

The pan-European STOXX 600 index rose 1.08% and MSCI's gauge of stocks across the globe gained 0.86%.

Emerging-market stocks rose 0.39%. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan closed 0.5% higher, while Japan's Nikkei lost 0.66%.

U.S. Treasury yields slid after the data, but retraced a bit after the SEP release.

U.S. benchmark 10-year Treasury notes last rose 19/32 in price to yield 4.3277%, from 4.402% late on Tuesday.

The 30-year bond last rose 27/32 in price to yield 4.4846%, from 4.535% late on Tuesday.

The dollar pared its losses against a basket of world currencies after the central bank cut its 2024 rate-cut expectations.

The dollar index fell 0.46%, with the euro up 0.61% to $1.0804.

The Japanese yen strengthened 0.14% versus the greenback at 156.88 per dollar, while Sterling was last trading at $1.2793, up 0.42% on the day.

Oil prices settled higher, supported by simmering tensions in the Middle East, and by forecasts that global inventories will fall in the latter half of the year.

U.S. crude rose 0.77% to settle at $78.50 per barrel, while Brent settled at $82.60, up 0.83% on the day.

Gold gained ground but lost some shine in the wake of the Fed's updated economic projections.

Spot gold added 0.2% to $2,320.76 an ounce.
