Rupee slumps 32 paise to close at 74.37 against US dollar

The rupee tumbled by 32 paise to end at 74.37 against the US currency on Wednesday, weighed down by a muted trend in domestic equities and strength of the American currency in the overseas market. At the interbank foreign exchange market, the local currency opened at 74.11 and witnessed a high of 74.06 and a low of 74.42 against the US dollar in the day trade. The local unit finally settled at 74.37 a dollar, down 32 paise over its previous close. On Tuesday, the rupee had settled at 74.05 against the US dollar. According to Emkay Global Financial Services, "Inflationary concerns are increasing globally and as we proceed with the week, the IPO related inflows may dry out, keeping USD/INR spot afloat". The key catalyst for the forex market is the US inflation data. A lower-than-expected CPI figure will reflect a 'transitory' factors, however, a higher-than-expected data or a figure in line with market consensus will induce the Fed to accelerate the pace of asset purchases, it said, adding that "we expect USD/INR spot to trade in between 73.75-74.50".

The index was unable to get past the 18,100 level which is the critical juncture at this point in time. If the Nifty can keep above 18,100 for a couple of sessions, we can move up to 18,400 and then 18,600 as targets 1 and 2 respectively. 17,700-17,800 has become the new support for the markets.

On Nykaa IPO: Jyoti Roy, DVP-equity strategist, Angel One Ltd

The Nykaa IPO received great response from investors and was subscribed ~ 82 times which translated to a blockbuster listing for the stock. The stock is trading at an 80% premium to the issue price of 1,125. We had given a subscribe rating to the IPO. At current levels Nykaa is trading at price to sales of 38.9x of FY2021 revenue which is at a discount to Zomato (54xFY2021 revenues). Nykaa is one of the very few profitable Unicorns in India and we believe that the company is well positioned to benefit from the exponential growth in the online beauty and fashion retailing business over the next decade. Given the discount to Zomato we would recommend investors to remain invested in Nykaa from a long term perspective.

Bhel stock down 6% on disappointing Q2 earnings

For Bharat Heavy Electronics Ltd (Bhel), the three months ended September (Q2) was yet another loss making quarter, providing no respite to its inventors. Consolidated net loss in Q2FY22 stood at 45.98 crore compared with 552.02 crore loss a year ago. Income from operations rose 43% year-on-year (y-o-y) to 4,910.62 crore. The company's management said the pandemic-led disruption led to a revenue loss of around 1,500 crore in the September quarter of the current fiscal as it stopped executing orders where cash flow issues existed. Little surprising then that shares of the company fell around 6% on the National Stock Exchange in opening deals on Wednesday. With that, the Bhel stock was the biggest loser among F&O Securities.

On commodity markets: Prathamesh Mallya, AVP-research, non-agri commodities and currencies, Angel One Ltd

 Gold

On Tuesday, Spot gold prices rose by 0.4% to close at $1831.5 per ounce. A slightly stronger US dollar ahead of the key US economic data kept a lid on the dollar-denominated commodities such as gold.

Investors are expected to have a keen eye on the US consumer prices data given the ongoing inflation fears and tight supply market.

The US Federal Reserve keeping interest rates near zero in the policy meet conducted last week hinted towards a Dovish approach in turn boosting appeal for Gold in the earlier trading sessions.

Mounting inflation woes and an accommodative approach by major central banks has created a supportive environment for the safe haven, gold.

Supportive monetary approach and a weaker US dollar is expected to push gold higher in today’s session.

 

Crude oil

On Tuesday, WTI crude soared over 2.7% to close at $84.2 per barrel. Bets over revival in global demand amid a tight supply market continued to underpin oil prices.

US withdrawing the travel restrictions, coupled with resumption in global economic activities is expected to boost demand for crude further pressuring the already tight supply chain.

OPEC continuing with the planned increase in output despite revival in global demand is expected keep Oil prices elevated in the week ahead.

However, worries over return of Iranian Oil in the global markets, increasing US Crude stocks and hike in prices by Saudi Arabia might turn out to be a setback for Crude prices.

Bets over increasing demand amid a tight supply market is expected to keep Oil prices elevated.

 

Base metals

Most industrial metals on MCX traded lower in line with the international markets as escalating concerns over the ongoing property crisis in China undermined the demand prospects for the base metals complex.

Also, China’s manufacturing PMI contracted for the second consecutive month in October’21 as increasing raw material prices, environmental norms and limitations on energy usage took a hit on their manufacturing activities.

As per reports from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), China’s official manufacturing Purchasing Manager's Index (PMI) slipped down to 49.2 in October 2021 from 49.6 in September’21.

However, a positive demand outlook for industrial metals with the $1 trillion US infrastructure bill being passed last week amid depleting inventories reignited shortage concerns limiting the fall in prices.

 

Copper

On Tuesday, MCX Copper prices ended lower by 0.53% as uncertainties arising from China’s economy clouded the outlook for Copper and other industrial metals.

The ongoing property crisis in China might overshadow worries over tightening supplies and push prices lower.

The markets have opened on a tepid note—it continues to face resistance at higher levels. We are unable to sustain above 18,000-18,100 for even two sessions in a row. If the Nifty can get past that hurdle, we can scale higher to 18,400 and then 18,600. Until then it is a wait and watch situation as the markets are not bearish either so traders need to wait for a direction to emerge.

China factory inflation surges to 26-year high, CPI picks up

China’s factory-gate prices grew at the fastest pace in 26 years in October as raw material costs continued to soar, with signs that producers are passing on higher costs to consumers. The producer price index climbed 13.5% from a year earlier, beating economists’ forecasts of a 12.3% gain, data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed on Wednesday. The consumer price index rose 1.5%, the fastest pace since September 2020 and above the projected 1.4% gain. Producer prices in China have been rising rapidly in the past few months, first due to the global commodity price rally and then output curbs caused by a power crunch nationwide. Authorities have rolled out a series of measures to stabilize coal and other commodity prices to help producers cope with rising costs and ease the power shortage. While consumer inflation remained mild, largely due to falling pork prices, there are signs food prices could pick up. Vegetable prices have jumped since mid-October, affected by supply disruptions following poor weather conditions. The weight of vegetables in the CPI basket is relatively small, but there are concerns the surge could drive up prices of other food products. Vegetable prices rose 15.9% from a year ago, contributing 0.33 percentage point to the increase in CPI, according to the statistics bureau. Core inflation, which excludes food and energy, accelerated to 1.3%. Bloomberg

Dollar near one-month low to yen as inflation test looms

The dollar held a three-day loss against major peers and traded near a one-month low to the yen on Wednesday, with highly anticipated US inflation data looming that could guide the timing of a Federal Reserve interest rate increase. The dollar index, which measures the greenback against six rivals, was little changed at 93.997 after retreating gradually from a more than one-year peak at 94.634 reached on Friday.

Oil climbs on surprise US crude stocks decline

Oil prices rose on Wednesday, extending strong gains in the previous session, after industry data showed US crude stocks unexpectedly fell last week just as near term travel demand picked up with pandemic curbs easing. US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures rose 23 cents, or 0.3%, to $84.38 a barrel at 0132 GMT, adding to a 2.7% gain on Tuesday. Brent crude futures jumped 36 cents, or 0.4%, to $85.14 a barrel, after rising 1.6% on Tuesday. Tightening global oil inventories have supported strong crude prices during the past several months, and the latest data from the American Petroleum Institute reinforced the view that supply remains constrained.

Stocks fall as China data highlight inflation risk

Most Asian stocks slipped on Wednesday as the latest Chinese data highlighted the inflationary pressures building up in the global economy. Treasury yields climbed ahead of a report on US consumer prices. Shares fluctuated in Japan and dipped in Hong Kong and China, where factory-gate prices grew at the fastest pace in 26 years and consumer-price inflation topped estimates. Developer Fantasia Holdings Group Co. plunged after resuming trading amid the continuing troubles in China’s property sector. US futures retreated after the S&P 500 declined for the first time in nine sessions, hurt by financial shares. The Nasdaq 100 underperformed, in part on Tesla Inc.’s loss of $199 billion in value on a host of negative news. Longer maturity Treasuries pared a climb, which earlier saw the 30-year yield reach the lowest since July. Bonds were supported by an unwinding of bearish bets and speculation about a possible dovish shift in the leadership of the Federal Reserve. The dollar ticked up. Persistent price pressures that accelerate monetary-policy tightening are among the key risks for global stocks, which remain near record levels.

Janet Yellen says Fed wouldn’t allow repeat of 1970s-level inflation

US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen repeated her view that elevated U.S. inflation won’t persist beyond next year and said the Federal Reserve will act if needed to prevent a rerun of 1970s-style price rises. “I’d expect price increases to level off, and we’ll go back to inflation that’s closer to the 2% that we consider normal" as the pandemic fades, Yellen said in an interview that aired Tuesday on National Public Radio’s “Marketplace" show. The Treasury chief said that an end to the pandemic would allow more people to return to work, and with consumer demand returning to normal patterns, that will relieve pressure from wages and goods prices.

Stocks stalled as oil fuels inflation nerves

Asian stockmarkets were becalmed on Wednesday as surges in oil and Chinese factory prices added to worries that a hot US inflation reading could renew pressure on policymakers to lift interest rates. US crude futures rose 1% to a two-week high of $84.97 a barrel in early trade and Brent futures made a one-week top of $85.35. Factory gate prices in China have soared 13.5% year-on-year to October, data showed, beating forecasts and warning of pressure heading down supply chains to global consumers. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan and Japan's Nikkei each dropped 0.2% in and Overnight on Wall Street a long rally paused, with the Nasdaq logging its first fall in a dozen sessions. S&P 500 futures fell 0.2% in morning trade. US data due at 1330 GMT is expected to show consumer prices galloping higher at 5.8% year-on-year and even dovish Federal Reserve officials Neel Kashkari and Mary Daly have conceded it is running hotter for longer than they expected.
