Apple Inc will manufacture latest iPhone 14 in India

Apple Inc. will make its latest iPhone 14 in India, the company said on Monday, as manufacturers shift production from China amid geopolitical tensions and pandemic restrictions that have disrupted supply chains for many industries.

“The new iPhone 14 lineup introduces groundbreaking new technologies and important safety capabilities. We’re excited to be manufacturing iPhone 14 in India," Apple said in a statement.

Apple unveiled its latest line-up of iPhones earlier this month. They will have improved cameras, faster processors and longer lasting batteries at the same prices as last year’s models.

India is the world’s second-largest smartphone market after China but Apple iPhone sales have struggled to capture a large share of the market against cheaper smartphones from competitors. (AP)

Energy, inflation crises risk pushing big economies into recession - OECD

Global economic growth is slowing more than was forecast a few months ago in the wake of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, as energy and inflation crises risk snowballing into recessions in major economies, the OECD said on Monday.

While global growth this year was still expected at 3.0%, it is now projected to slow to 2.2% in 2023, revised down from a forecast in June of 2.8%, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development said.

The Paris-based policy forum was particularly pessimistic about the outlook in Europe - the most directly exposed economy to the fallout from Russia's war in Ukraine.

Global output next year is now projected to be $2.8 trillion lower than what the OECD forecast before Russia attacked Ukraine - a loss of income worldwide equivalent in size to the French economy. (Reuters)

Axis Securities views on Sensex dropping 600 points: Recommend investors avoid riskier bets this week

Neeraj Chadawar, Head - Quantitative Equity Research, Axis Securities: The Indian market performance showed resilience in the last couple of months, outperforming the global market by a superior margin based on the robust economic outlook compared to other emerging markets. After a hawkish US Fed stance, we are observing weakness in the global market on an expectation of a continuation of rate hikes in the remaining two FOMC meetings of 2022. In that context, term performance was likely to be range bound due to a stronger dollar. The Indian currency has performed well, and it has been stable vis-a-vis other emerging market currencies, on account of higher foreign exchange reserve, robust growth outlook, and macroeconomic stability. However, the sharp upward movement in the dollar index has created a weakness in the domestic market. Now the market is eyeing the RBI monetary policy, scheduled this week. We recommend investors avoid riskier bets this week as volatility is likely to continue in the near term. Further, the market is eyeing the upcoming earning season & the festival demand, which will likely drive the market fundamentals. We recommend investors to use this volatility in the coming days in a phased manner to build a position with a view of 12-18 months in quality companies where earnings visibility is very high. In this context, domestic-oriented themes like Banks, FMCG, Hospitals, Domestic Industrials, and Discretionary consumption are well placed over export plus cyclical-oriented themes.

Angel One and Ashika Stock Broking views on today's market

Tirthankar Das, technical & derivative analyst, retail, Ashika Stock Broking Ltd.: On the technical front, Nifty ended the week on a negative note extended losses for the second consecutive week in a row, on the daily time frame it ended with a long bearish candle which sums up to a possible reversal in the market. However, on an overall basis the market continues to remain consolidative amidst the broader range of 16900-18000 and one need to recall that secondary corrections are a part of the bull market. Presently a trader needs to show patience and need to avoid trading aggressively in the market as the risk of a bare minimum correction of 38.2% of the entire rally from 15,183 to 18,096 comes around 16990 followed by 50% correction at 16650 remains. During the day index is likely to open with a gap down, tracking weak global cues. Formation of lower high- lower low signifies corrective bias. Hence, use intraday pullback towards 17400-17500 for creating short position for the target of 16900.

Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel One Ltd: Technically speaking, the last session of correction has dampened the overall sentiments as the significant support of the unfilled gap got breached decisively, implying strong momentum in the sell-off. The weakness in the global markets and the upcoming key domestic data have put a sense of tentativeness among the market participants. As we have witnessed a decisive breach below the major support zone in Nifty, one should not rule out the possibility of it testing the immediate swing low of 17150 odd zone, while the sacrosanct support lies at the psychological mark of 17000. On the flip side, a series of resistances could be seen starting from 17500 to 17800 in the comparable period.

Considering the recent price action, traders are advised not to carry aggressive overnight bets for a while and should adapt the strategy to follow one step at a time and respect levels on either side. The unfavorable global scenario was one of the major catalysts for the fall last week; hence, one should stay abreast with global developments and the upcoming key domestic macro data.

Sterling collapses as investors fly into dollars

Sterling slumped to a record low on Monday, prompting speculation of an emergency response from the Bank of England, as confidence evaporated in Britain's plan to borrow its way out of trouble, with spooked investors piling in to U.S. dollars.

Broadening worry that high interest rates will hurt growth hit Asia's currencies and equities too, with exporters from Japanese carmakers to Australian miners hit hard.

The pound plunged nearly 5% at one point to $1.0327, breaking below 1985 lows. Moves were exacerbated by thinner liquidity in the Asia session, but even after stumbling back to $1.05 the currency is still down some 7% in just two sessions.

Oil’s retreat deepens as dollar’s surge looms over commodities

Oil fell again as the dollar’s surge to a fresh peak and mounting recessionary concerns threatened global demand, deepening a rout.

West Texas Intermediate sank toward $78 a barrel as a Bloomberg gauge of the US currency rallied to an all-time high. The US benchmark crude collapsed more than 7% last week to end at the lowest close since mid-January. The decline was its fourth straight weekly drop, the longest losing run this year.

Crude is on track for its first quarterly slump in more than two years as central banks including the Federal Reserve raise interest rates aggressively, hurting the outlook for energy demand and sapping investors’ appetite for risk. The Fed’s tightening has helped to drive the US dollar to a record, making commodities priced in the currency more expensive for overseas buyers. (Bloomberg)

Geojit Financial Services on today's market: Buy-on-dips strategy which worked since the June lows need not work now

Dr V K Vijayakumar, chief investment strategist at Geojit Financial Services: "The global macro construct is not favourable for equity markets in the short run. The dollar index above 113 and the US 10-year yield at 3.73 % is likely to aggravate FPI outflows which have been gathering momentum during the last 3 days. The probability of a global recession is also increasing since the Fed continues to be ultra hawkish. The 5% cut in MSCI World Index last week indicates the bearish undertone of global equity markets. In this scenario, the buy-on-dips strategy which worked since the June lows need not work now. Investors have to be cautious and remain vigilant.

However, India will outperform both in economic growth and market performance. Therefore, selective buying can be done in domestic economy-facing segments like financials, autos, capital goods and select FMCG on sharp market declines."
