Indian stock market: 7 key things that changed for market over weekend - Gift Nifty, Nasdaq at record high to oil prices

Indian stock market: The domestic equity indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, are expected to open higher on Monday led by positive global market cues.

Asian markets traded higher, while the US stock market closed in the green last week amid key economic data releases.

Markets are pricing in a 49.4% chance for a rate cut at the US Federal Reserve’s September meeting, down from 54.8% a week ago, CME’s FedWatch Tool showed.

On Friday, the Indian stock market benchmark indices ended flat with a negative bias amid profit booking and weak global cues.

The Sensex eased 7.65 points, or 0.01%, to close at 75,410.39, while the Nifty 50 settled 10.55 points, or 0.05%, lower at 22,957.10.

“Easing in FII selling and healthy domestic macro data supported the positive sentiments in the market. Overall we expect the market to witness a gradual up-move and see some volatility next week as both election and earning season are nearing the end," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.

Going ahead, investors will keenly watch the final batch of Q4 results, Lok Sabha election voter turnout, domestic and global macroeconomic data, foreign fund inflow, crude oil prices, and other key global cues.

Bank of Japan

The Bank of Japan (BOJ) will proceed cautiously with inflation-targeting frameworks, while estimating the neutral interest rate accurately is particularly challenging in Japan, given the prolonged period of near-zero short-term interest rates over the past three decades, Governor Kazuo Ueda said.

US Capital Goods Orders

New orders for US-manufactured non-defense capital goods excluding aircraft rose 0.3% in April after an upwardly revised 0.1% dip in March, the Commerce Department’s Census Bureau said. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast these capital goods orders would rise 0.1% after declining by a previously reported 0.2% in March.

Consumer Inflation Sentiment

A University of Michigan survey showing US consumers’ inflation expectations improved in late May after deteriorating early in the month, Reuters reported. The survey’s 12-month inflation expectation fell to 3.3% from 3.5%. The five-year inflation outlook improved to 3.0% from 3.1% earlier this month.

Oil Prices

Crude oil prices steadied after its biggest weekly loss in four. Brent futures rose 0.13% to $82.23 a barrel after dropping 2.2% last week and touching the lowest since early February, while West Texas Intermediate (WTI) gained 0.17% to $77.85.
