On markets closing: Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments
The markets rose to post its tepid opening and we have managed to close above the 17,950-18,000 level, which is a positive sign. This needs to be maintained for a couple of sessions and that would then open the doors for the index to scale higher towards 18,400-18,500. Since good support lies around the 17,550-17,600 level, dips can be utilized to accumulate long positions.

Kotak announces revised home loan rate of 6.55%
Kotak Mahindra Bank has revised home loan interest rate to 6.55% per annum, which is valid from 9 November to 10 December 2021 (both days inclusive). In September, the bank had kick-started the festive season by introducing home loan interest rates beginning at 6.50% per year; it was a limited period festive season offer that ends today.
World shares steadied near record peaks on Monday as risk assets found support from an upbeat US October payrolls report, but they face another test later in the week from a reading on US inflation. The congressional passage of a long-delayed $1 trillion infrastructure bill also cheered investors, though a broader social safety net plan remains elusive. Data out over the weekend also showed China's exports beat forecasts in October to deliver a record trade surplus, although a miss on imports added to evidence of a slowing in domestic demand. Moves were modest with the pan-European STOXX 600 benchmark was little changed in early trading, while the MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.2%. Nasdaq futures were off 0.2%, after 10 straight sessions of gains which left the index looking overextended. S&P 500 futures dipped less than 0.1%. World shares were flat at 757.24 points by 0837 GMT after hitting a record high last week as relatively dovish central bank messages and the strong labour data in the United States added to optimism generated by a healthy earnings season on both sides of the Atlantic.

Currency update: Heena Naik, research analyst-currency, Angel One Ltd
The Sterling pound plunged by around 2.50%, touching the lower levels of 1.3422 in the last week. This negative trend impacted GBP-INR as well which saw a fall of around 1.50% touching the lower levels of 99.73 in the holiday-shortened week last week. Reason for the same could be attributed to the release of the BoE Monetary Policy Statement where the committee surprised the markets by leaving the policy rate unchanged.
Markets had expected the BoE to hike interest rates in the face of the inflation threat, but the central bank’s Monetary Policy Committee voted 7-2 in favour of keeping the key rate at 0.1%. BOE concluded that the existing stance of monetary policy remained appropriate. The BoE’s decision prompted a big drop in yields. Defending his position, the Bank of England (BOE) Governor Andrew Bailey stated that his remarks on the need to curb inflation before the meeting were “conditional". Keeping the above factors in mind, there is a possibility that GBP-INR (CMP: 100.08) may continue to trade with a bearish bias towards 99.00 levels amidst Brexit concerns and BOE’s dovishness.

Positives: Sapphire is YUM's largest franchise operator in the Indian subcontinent in terms of revenue. It has a portfolio of well-recognized global brands across spectrum. It has a scalable business model and an experienced board and senior management team.
Investment concerns: SFIL is making continuous losses on bottom-line front, hence profit concerns remain; slowdown in the economy could impact the overall revenue of the company (discretionary in nature).
Outlook and valuation: In terms of valuations, the post-issue FY21 EV/sales works out 7.4x to (at the upper end of the issue price band), which is low compared with peers Devyani International (FY21 EV/Sales -16.3x). Further, Sapphire Foods India has a better revenue per store compared to Devyani International. On the EBITDA front, the company is continuously showing improvement. Considering all the positive factors, we believe this valuation is at reasonable levels. Thus, we recommend a subscribe rating on the issue.

Pfizer’s covid pill is shaking up the global recovery trade
Shares tied to reopening trades from casinos to airlines surged in Asia on Monday after Pfizer Inc. said that its covid-19 pill could reduce hospitalizations and deaths in high-risk patients by 89%. A Bloomberg gauge of Macau casino shares jumped 7.2%, the biggest move in over two months, while an index of Asia-Pacific airline stocks rallied as much as 5.5%, the most since March. Luggage manufacturer Samsonite International SA climbed 15% in Hong Kong. The buying frenzy in Asia—which tracks gains among similar stocks in the US—comes as Pfizer looked to become the second pharmaceutical company to offer an oral pill to combat the virus. While Pfizer’s drug has yet to receive emergency authorization from US regulators, investors say that it shows promise to help ease the pandemic globally and accelerate a return to travel. Bloomberg

Crypto rally lifts ether to new record, bitcoin to near 3-week high
Bitcoin rose to a two-and-a-half-week peak on Monday and ether climbed to a fresh record as cryptocurrencies ride higher on a wave of momentum, flows, favourable news and inflation fears. Bitcoin was last up about 3% at $65,121 and ether, which underpins the ethereum network, sat at a record top of $4,711. Ether is up 57% since the start of October and bitcoin about 50% as investors have cheered last month's launch of a US futures-based bitcoin exchange-traded fund and sought exposure to an asset class sometimes regarded as an inflation hedge. Falling real yields, as traders brace for inflation, adds to the attractiveness of assets such as gold and cryptocurrencies which do not pay a coupon, said Kyle Rodda, analyst at broker IG Markets, adding that the mood in the sector has also been good.

Oil climbs as traders weigh up odds of US stockpile release
Oil advanced above $82 a barrel as traders weighed the odds of a release of crude from the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve after OPEC+ resisted a plea from President Joe Biden to boost supplies more quickly. West Texas Intermediate rose 1.1% after surging 3.1% on Friday, and Brent also tracked higher. The administration will consider data coming out Tuesday as it assesses measures to stem gasoline prices, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said on Sunday. Vitol Group, the biggest independent oil trader, told Bloomberg on Sunday that OPEC+ is unlikely to change its stance. Oil’s rally to a seven-year high has alarmed Biden, who led calls from consumers last week for the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies to step up the pace they are reactivating the supply shuttered at the start of the pandemic. Despite his plea, the alliance chose to stick with a planned, modest hike of 400,000 barrels a day. That’s raised the possibility of an SPR release, which could be made in coordination with other states. (Read here)

Stocks steady ahead of US CPI; treasuries dip
Stocks in Asia were steady Monday as investors keep watch on how price pressures impact monetary policy and the pace of economic recovery. Treasury yields pared a slide. Equities in Japan were little changed and they fell in Hong Kong and South Korea. US futures dipped after all major US equity benchmarks climbed to records Friday, with the S&P 500 posting its fifth consecutive weekly rally. That was after a larger-than-forecast and broad-based gain in US payrolls that also showed a jump in average hourly earnings. Australian bonds rallied after the US 10-year Treasury yield tumbled below 1.5%. Markets will closely watch a read on US consumer prices this week. The dollar rose and the yen slipped. Stocks in China fluctuated as the Communist Party meets for the first time in more than a year this week. The gathering is expected to lay the ground for extending the term of President Xi Jinping, who has rattled markets with his “common prosperity" campaign to redistribute the nation’s wealth. The inflation debate continues to shadow the markets that had taken some comfort from a strong earnings season despite higher inflation and supply chain snarls. Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City President Esther George said the risk of a prolonged period of elevated inflation has increased and the argument for patience has diminished.
S&P 500 futures slipped 0.2% as of 10:45 a.m. in Tokyo. The S&P 500 rose 0.4%
