Energy Outlook: ICICIdirect

"Oil prices rose for a third week in a row to a near three-year high as global output disruptions have forced energy companies to pull large amounts of crude out of inventories. Some members of the OPEC+, have struggled to raise output due to under-investment or maintenance delays during the pandemic. Iran, which wants to export more oil, said it will return to talks on resuming compliance with the 2015 Iran nuclear deal “very soon", but gave no specific date. U.S. natural gas futures recovered losses in the last week as some parts of the country start to crank up their heaters with the coming of cooler weather and as near record global gas prices keep demand strong for U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports."

Gold Outlook: ICICIdirect

Gold prices slipped after the U.S. Federal Reserve signalled a sooner-than-expected interest rate hike and easing of its bond purchases by the middle of next year. U.S. central bank said it could start paring bond purchases as soon as November and that half of the Fed officials were ready to raise interest rates next year in response to inflation. However, prices remained supported by safe-haven demand as investors grew wary over cash-strapped China Evergrande’s fate while a softer dollar also lifted the metal’s allure for holders of other currencies. The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits unexpectedly rose last week, but the underlying trend remained consistent with a steadily recovering labour market.

Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments

"The index is facing significant resistance at the current zone of 17,900-17,950. I would consider this to be an important juncture from a trading perspective. If we have to go in for a short term correction, this is the point from where that can happen. On the flip side, if we get past 17,950 on a closing basis, the Nifty can scale up higher and move towards 18,050. It is a wait and watch situation where hasty decisions should be avoided."

Asian markets open lower

Asia stocks fell on Tuesday after a jump in Treasury yields as investors priced in the start of Federal Reserve tapering and elevated energy prices. The dollar edged up. MSCI Inc.’s index of Asia Pacific stocks snapped a three-day advance, with Japan and Australia sliding. Hong Kong opened firmer, while China slipped. U.S. futures declined. Earlier, the tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 underperformed. Investors rotated out of growth stocks as the benchmark 10-year U.S. yield briefly topped 1.5%—a level not seen since June. The S&P 500 dipped. The U.S. two-year yield hit an 18-month high as traders increasingly priced in the prospect of the Fed trimming its $120 billion in monthly asset purchases soon. The 10-year yield pared gains. The dollar edged higher. Oil held onto gains on fears of a global energy crunch. Brent was near the highest in almost three years, while WTI crude hovered above $75 a barrel. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. said Brent could hit $90 by year-end as the market is in a bigger deficit than many realize.

US indices mixed at close

US government borrowing costs advanced for a sixth week on Monday, hurting tech stocks as investors bet on rising interest rates, while three-year high oil prices ignited the energy sector. An easing in Sino-U.S. tensions and Chinese authorities' decision to pump in more cash to offset the fallout from real estate firm Evergrande's woes offered encouragement to investors. There was also relief that Germany's election outcome ruled out a pure left-wing coalition government. U.S. indices were mixed, with the industrials-heavy Dow Jones index outperforming the Nasdaq index of tech stocks. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 71.37 points, or 0.21%, to 34,869.37, the S&P 500 lost 12.37 points, or 0.28%, to 4,443.11 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 77.73 points, or 0.52%, to 14,969.97.
