Indices ended in red as Sensex and Nifty shed 200 and 60 points, respectively

Indian indices after all did not remain immune to negative global cues on Tuesday and ended in the red zone. Investors keenly wait for a policy clue from the ongoing MPC meeting and how RBI plans to shape its future policy.

Sensex dropped 208 points to close at 62,626, while Nifty shed 60 points and ended at 18,642. Sensex had gone below 62,500 and Nifty below 18,600 in today's intraday trading.

Almost all sectoral indices remained under pressure with IT, Pharma, and Metal dragging the most. PSU Bank index was the only exception and climbed handsomely in today's session.

Adani Enterprises jumped more than 2% and was a standout performer. Hindustan Unilever and Nestle India were among the other gainers. On the red side, BPCL, Hindalco, Tata Steel and Dr Reddy's shed more than 2% on Tuesday.

Most Asian stocks fell Tuesday as fresh fears that the US Federal Reserve will push interest rates higher than hoped overshadowed growing optimism over China's economic reopening.

Tokyo stocks shed earlier losses and ended higher Tuesday as investors grew hopeful about the prospects for China's economic reopening. The benchmark Nikkei 225 index added 0.24%, while the broader Topix index firmed 0.12%.

Meanwhile, Mainland China had a mixed showing and Hong Kong suffered a dip. China's blue-chip CSI 300 Index gained 0.54%, while the Shanghai Composite Index was nearly flat. Hang Seng Index fell 0.4%.

European shares fell on Tuesday, dragged down by financials and energy stocks. The region-wide STOXX 600 index slipped in the morning session paving the way for losses in the third straight session.

Global energy crisis a ‘historic turning point’ for renewables: IEA

Global energy crisis is driving a sharp acceleration in installations of renewable power, with total capacity growth worldwide set to almost double in the next five years overtaking coal as the largest source of electricity generation along the way and helping keep alive the possibility of limiting global warming to 1.5 °C, the International Energy Agency (IEA) said in a new report on Tuesday.

This massive expected increase is 30% higher than the amount of growth that was forecast just a year ago, highlighting how quickly governments have thrown additional policy weight behind renewables. (Read More)

Foreign equity funds pile into Indian financials as credit cycle picks up

Foreign investors are buying into Indian financial firms, lured by the prospects of a fresh credit cycle that may boost the stocks of the country's largest lenders.

Indian shares are trading at a record-high valuation premium to their Asian counterparts, BNP Paribas said, but overseas investors have found a bright spot in financials, considering them relatively cheap given their strong fundamentals.

The optimism is reflected in inflows, with foreign investors buying a net of $1.74 billion worth of Indian financial stocks in November, data released by the National Securities Depository Ltd this week showed.

That is more than a third of the total $4.44 billion net inflows for the month. (Reuters)

Sri Lanka to resume flights from Jaffna to India next week: Aviation Minister

Sri Lanka will resume flights from the northern Jaffna peninsula to Chennai by next week, a senior minister has said, a move that will help the cash-strapped country's tourism sector and provide a fillip to its beleaguered economy.

The tourism sector is the main source of foreign exchange earnings for Sri Lanka.

However, the onset of the pandemic in 2020 severely crippled the tourism sector and was one of the major reasons for Sri Lanka's economic travails.

The island nation's earnings from international tourist arrivals for November touched USD 107.5 million, with the cumulative tally in the first eleven months of the year notching up a whopping USD 1129.4 million, according to the Central Bank of Sri Lanka. (PTI)

Shriram Housing Finance, Credit Fair and Indel Money on their expectation on monetary policy  

Ravi Subramanian, MD & CEO of Shriram Housing Finance Ltd: There is a sign of inflation cooling off as CPI-based inflation in October is at its three-month low of 6.7%. This is still higher than the RBI's tolerance limit of 4-6%. We expect a moderate rate hike of 25-35 basis points this time around. Since the housing loan demand, especially the affordable sector, is not very sensitive to the interest rate fluctuation, it won’t immediately affect the home finance business. RBI's directional approach will be closely monitored by the industry, which is waiting for long-term signals. In order to bring about stability in the market, we look forward to a clear indication.

Aditya Damani, founder and CEO of Credit Fair: We are expecting only a moderate rate hike this time as the domestic situation warrants some serious measures to sustain growth. Though the Q2 GDP numbers are in line with RBI’s expectations, rating agencies and institutions are revising India’s growth rate downwards, given the global headwinds. Now, I think the priorities are changing, and the immediate focus should be on maintaining the growth momentum. Current inflationary pressures are largely imported, and we shouldn’t worry much about it. As far as food price is concerned, the domestic supply side is intact and a good Rabi harvest will further strengthen the rural economy. So, the demand for retail loans may remain robust. However, the repo rate touching the 6.2 percentage levels in a period of eight months is a bit tricky and, going forward, it will affect consumer sentiments.

Umesh Mohanan, executive director & CEO, Indel Money: As inflation remains elevated, the MPC is expected to continue with the rate hikes. However, as CPI inflation is expected to moderate in the next few months due to falling commodity prices, RBI may keep the rate hike scale smaller. With the high-frequency economic indicator denoting healthy recovery, the MPC is likely to keep the rate hike moderate this time.

Japanese shares end higher as chip stocks, exporters gain

Japanese shares closed slightly higher on Tuesday, supported by gains in chip-related stocks and as exporters advanced after the yen weakened against the dollar overnight.

The Nikkei share average rose 0.24% to close at 27,885.87, while the broader Topix ended 0.12% higher at 1,950.22.

"As the yen weakened, some shares looked attractive," said Chihiro Ohta, assistant general manager at the investment research and investor services at SMBC Nikko Securities.

The dollar gained against the yen overnight, after data showed that U.S. services industry activity unexpectedly picked up in November, prompting speculation the Federal Reserve may lift interest rates more than recently projected. (Reuters)

US risks stoking inflation if carbon-linked tariffs hit China, says MBMG

China’s steel and aluminium exports are under attack once again, as the US and European Union weigh new tariffs linked to carbon emissions.

The idea from President Joe Biden’s administration would probably have the biggest impact on the aluminium market, particularly in the EU, which has relied on Chinese smelters to plug gaps in output following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. That dependency highlights the inflationary risks of any measures that would shrink supply or add costs based on climate goals. (Read More)

Rupee drops to 1-month low, falls below 50-day moving avg

The Indian rupee extended its opening decline against the dollar on Tuesday, to slip to its lowest level in over a month and below a key level.

The rupee was at 82.30 to the U.S. dollar by 9.30 a.m. IST, down from 81.79 in the previous session. The local unit opened at 81.9350 before swiftly falling below the 50-day moving average of 81.98 and the psychological level of 82.

There was probably another round of stop losses triggered once USD/INR moved about 82, a trader said, recalling a possible dividend dollar outflow of a mining company. However, they added "it was difficult to be sure".

"It could be that the news is chasing the price action."

The trader requested anonymity as they are not allowed to speak to the media. (Reuters)

Kotak Securities outlook on Commodities - Gold and Crude

Gold & Crude by Ravindra Rao, CMT, EPAT, VP-head commodity Research, Kotak Securities Ltd:

Gold: COMEX Gold trades mildly higher today recovering from the lows of $1778/oz hit in yesterday’s session. After solid gains posted in the previous week, gold gave away a part of gains on Monday as the US Dollar and bond yields recovered amid some encouraging US data prints. The US Dollar recovered from a five-month low as US factory orders and ISM services PMI rose above expectations. With better-than-expected data prints, the Federal Reserve gets more room for extended interest rate hikes that is not good for non-yielding assets like bullion. On the price front, COMEX gold has not sustained above the 252 DMA resistance near $1804. Additionally, $1825 would act as the next hurdle. So, till the said resistances hold, we expect a range-bound move in gold between $1773 to $1820.

Crude: NYMEX WTI crude oil trades 1% higher in today’s early session after a sharp drop in the previous session. Recovery in the US dollar after better-than-expected US data prints has pressurized commodity prices, including oil. Crude oil fell 3.89% in the previous session, once again failing to sustain above the $81.50 resistance level. Apart from dollar, crude will take cues from China’s COVID situation that has been haunting oil markets as well as the Russian oil cap that kicked off on Monday. With EU embargo and the price cap on Russian oil, along with China’s COVID situation, the price might witness wild moves from one direction to another. On the price front, WTI crude oil has once again failed to sustain above $81.50/bbl and fell deep towards $76.77/bbl. The trend seems to be consolidative with immediate support near $76/bbl followed by strong support near $73.60/bbl. There would be resistance near $81.50/bbl on closing.

Vedanta's high dividend payout to continue, says Edelweiss, raises target price

Brokerage and research firm Edelweiss interacted with Vedanta (VEDL) to get an update on its ongoing expansion plans, parent’s deleveraging target and more. The highlights of which were - FY24 is the year of commissioning of the ongoing expansion in zinc, aluminium, alumina, coal; high dividend pay-out to continue in FY24 & FY25; focus on curbing carbon emissions at the forefront.

“Vedanta's low cost status in zinc and efforts to reduce its aluminium CoP below $1,500/t on a sustainable-basis (likely by FY26) will be a long-term positive. The expectation of reopening of China (demand to improve) will help base metal prices to sustain higher, providing a cushion to our financial numbers," the note stated. (Read More)

RPT-India's sugar output set to drop 7%, could crimp exports

India's sugar output is likely to fall 7% this year as erratic weather conditions have cut cane yields, which could dampen exports from the world's biggest producer of the sweetener, farmers, millers and traders said.

Lower sugar exports from India, also the world's second biggest exporter, could lift global prices and allow rivals Brazil and Thailand to increase their shipments.

"The crop was just looking like last year but when we started harvesting we realised that yields were very low," said Pradip Jagtap, a farmer from the Solapur district of the western state of Maharashtra, India's No.1 sugar-producing state.

This year, Jagtap could gather 530 tonnes of cane from his nine-acre plot, down from the previous year's 750 tonnes. (Reuters)

We have seen resistance with 7.20% acting as the bottom. With some upmove in U.S. yields, there should be some selling today, the trader added.

Geojit Financial Services on today's market: Buy on dips strategy has worked well this year and investors can continue with the strategy

Dr V K Vijayakumar, chief investment strategist at Geojit Financial Services: Two trends stand out in the current economic scenario. The US economy continues to be strong as reflected by the jobs data, labour market conditions and ISM services. But these positive numbers are viewed by the market with concern since this strong scenario might persuade the Fed to continue to be hawkish. The Indian macros indicate steady improvement with buoyant tax collections, impressive credit growth and declining crude. Partly the market resilience in India comes from retail optimism and DII investment. This is likely to continue despite the elevated valuations. Buy on dips strategy has worked well this year and investors can continue with the strategy.

Rupee falls 52 paise to close at 81.85 against US dollar on forex outflows, firm crude

The rupee pared its initial gains to settle down by 52 paise at a nearly two-week low of 81.85 against the US dollar on Monday weighed down by weak domestic markets, forex outflows and a rise in crude oil prices.

Forex traders said a weak dollar in the overseas market cushioned the downside for the local unit.

At the interbank foreign exchange market, the local unit opened at 81.26, but pared the gains and ended at 81.85, down 52 paise which is its biggest single-day loss in over six weeks.

During the day, the local unit witnessed an intraday high of 81.25 and a low of 81.87. On Friday, the rupee had settled down by 7 paise at 81.33 against the dollar. (PTI)

Wall Street stocks slide as strong data suggests Fed has more to do

Stocks closed broadly lower on Wall Street and Treasury yields rose Monday after surprisingly strong economic reports highlighted the Federal Reserve's difficult fight against inflation.

The S&P 500 fell 1.8%, its third straight drop. The slide more than offset the index's gains last week. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 1.4% and the tech-heavy Nasdaq composite slid 1.9%. Small-company stocks fell even more, sending the Russell 2000 index 2.8% lower.

The selling came as traders reacted to some better-than-expected economic snapshots. The services sector, which makes up the biggest part of the U.S. economy, showed surprising growth in November, according to the Institute for Supply Management. Reports on business orders at U.S. factories and orders for durable goods in October also rose more than expected.

The reports are positive for the broader economy, but they make the Fed's fight against inflation more difficult because it likely means the central bank will have to keep raising interest rates in order to bring down inflation.
