Market view: Naveen Kulkarni, Chief Investment Officer, Axis Securities

“India VIX in the domestic market was around 17-18 levels during most of November, indicating limited market downside. However, volatility spiked by 25% on Friday, 26th Nov, led by rising concerns on the new Covid-19 variant, making investors cautious. Further, an increase in the new variant cases will be a short-term negative for the equity market. Currently, VIX trading around 21 levels signifies an increase in cautiousness, as compared to the previous week. Volatility is likely to continue for some more time, as the direction of the new variant, Oil prices, and Dollar index will further drive the market fundamentals. FIIs are the net sellers in the equity market, especially from the last two weeks, and DIIs are consistently providing support. With every FIIs selling, here onwards, DIIs support will be critical for the market. Investors should stick to the fundamentals where the earnings visibility is high, and we believe sector rotation with a focus on quality and momentum will deliver superior returns moving forward"

Oil slumps on jitters over vaccine efficacy

Oil prices tumbled more than 3% on Tuesday after Moderna's CEO cast doubt on the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines against the Omicron coronavirus variant, spooking financial markets.

The head of drugmaker Moderna told the Financial Times that COVID-19 vaccines are unlikely to be as effective against the Omicron variant of the coronavirus as they have been against the Delta variant.

Brent crude futures fell $2.32, or 3.2%, to $71.12 a barrel at 0729 GMT after slipping to an intraday low of $70.52, the lowest since Sept. 1. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures fell $2.15, or 3.1%, to $67.80 a barrel, off a session low of $67.06, the weakest since Aug. 26.

Asian markets hit by Moderna vaccine warning over Omicron

But Stephane Bancel's comments in an interview with the Financial Times sent shivers through markets again, as he said the high amount of mutations on Omicron and its swift spread in South Africa indicated the present jabs would need to be tweaked.

Moderna CEO says world may need new vaccines to fight Omicron

The plethora of mutations in the omicron variant are likely to help it evade protection provided by existing vaccines, making it necessary to develop new immunizations, Moderna Inc. Chief Executive Officer Stephane Bancel told the Financial Times.
