Ladderup Wealth Management views on consumer price index (CPI) data: It appears that the Reserve Bank of India's decision to refrain from further rate hikes has proven beneficial
Raghvendra Nath, MD, Ladderup Wealth Management Pvt. Ltd: India's consumer price index (CPI) has experienced a significant easing, reaching a 25-month low of 4.25% in May. This improvement can be attributed to the relatively slower increase in food prices and a favourable base effect. Notably, the CPI has remained below the Reserve Bank of India's upper tolerance limit of 6% for three consecutive months. Comparatively, the current CPI is lower than the recorded 4.7% in April 2023 and significantly lower than the 7.04% reported in May 2022. Additionally, the consumer food price index also saw a decline, falling from 3.84% in April to 2.91% in May. It appears that the Reserve Bank of India's decision to refrain from further rate hikes has proven beneficial, as the monthly inflation figures continue to decrease. Moreover, the latest inflation number aligns with the revised projection by the RBI, which now estimates inflation for Q1 2024 at 4.6%, down from the earlier projection of 5.1%.

Mahin Gupta, Founder of Liminal views on SEC action against crypto firms: important to acknowledge that such strong actions could potentially stifle innovation
Mahin Gupta, Founder of Liminal, a wallet infrastructure & custody solutions platform, comments on SEC action on crypto firms: The recent lawsuits filed by the SEC against Binance and Coinbase indicate a significant shift in regulatory approach towards the digital asset industry. Previously, the SEC had faced criticism for its perceived slow response in regulating the industry, which allowed certain malicious actors to operate without proper oversight, as exemplified by the FTX incident.
This marks the beginning of a series of actions aimed at establishing tighter control over the industry. While these measures may ultimately contribute to legitimizing the web3 industry in the long run, it is important to acknowledge that such strong actions could potentially stifle innovation. Therefore, web3 firms need to proactively prepare themselves for heightened regulatory scrutiny.
Web3 enterprises must prioritize compliance with all relevant laws and regulations. Additionally, they should establish robust internal controls to safeguard investor interests. Transparency regarding their operations is crucial, as is constructive engagement with regulators. By fostering collaboration between the digital asset industry and regulators, a balance can be struck between promoting innovation and ensuring investor protection. This collaborative approach will ultimately foster the long-term growth and success of the web3 industry.

Geojit Financial Services views on today's market: The 4% drop in crude price even after the OPEC production cut is good news for India
Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: The market rally which began in April remains strong with healthy corrections. The market construct is favourable for continuation of the rally. The global support for the rally comes from the consolidation in the US market where S&P 500 is at a 52-week high with low volatility, indicating lack of fear in the market. The domestic support to the market comes from strong economic cues. The May CPI inflation at 4.25% and IIP at 4.2% are better than expected. The decline in inflation is a big positive from the market perspective since it opens up possibilities of a rate cut by end 2023. The 4% drop in crude price even after the OPEC production cut is good news for India.
Taking cues from the better-than-expected economic news, DIIs have emerged big buyers during the last two days. This will impart resilience to the market.

TIW Capital perspective on CPI IIP announcement: RBI is still likely to retain the pause on the interest rate at least till the time worries over the spatial and temporal distribution of monsoon
Mohit Ralhan, Chief Executive Officer TIW Capital's Perspective on CPI IIP announcement: At 4.25%, inflation continued to remain on a downward trajectory, reaching a 25-month low, driven by the decline in consumer food price inflation from 3.8% in April to 2.9% in May. A decline in oils & fats, vegetables, meat & fish prices more than offset any increase from cereals and spices. Fuel inflation also declined from 5.5% to 4.6% YoY. However, the core component still remains somewhat sticky. The good news on inflation was further accentuated by an increase in IIP to 4.2% in April, a significant improvement over the 1.1% level in March. Growth was led by a revival in the manufacturing and mining sectors. RBI is still likely to retain the pause on the interest rate at least till the time worries over the spatial and temporal distribution of monsoon. Overall, the domestic economy is looking increasingly under control and on the correct trajectory"

Angel One views on today's market: We remain sanguine with broader-market participation, which is likely to contribute to the buoyant undertone in the market
Sameet Chavan, Head Research, Technical and Derivatives, Angel One Ltd: The Indian equity market has started the week on a mild note, defying the developments in the global bourses over the weekend. The benchmark index refrained from any decisive move and stayed in a slender range of 75 odd points throughout the session. Amidst the lackluster start of the week, the Nifty50 witnessed a muted closure with a mere gain of 0.21 per cent and settled a tad above 18600 level.
The indecisiveness is quite evident as the index made a small ‘Doji’ candlestick on the daily chart. Technically, there have been no significant changes as the market had a subdued closing. As far as levels are concerned, a decisive closure above the 18700-18750 zone would only affirm the strength in the benchmark. Whereas on the downside, 18500-18450 is likely to act as a sacrosanct support zone and till it is sustained, we do not see a sign of caution in the near period.
Meanwhile, we remain sanguine with broader-market participation, which is likely to contribute to the buoyant undertone in the market. Simultaneously, one needs to keep a close tab on the mentioned levels and have a pragmatic approach to the indices. Also, individual pockets are comparatively performing well, and traders need to focus on the stock-specific approach to gauge trading opportunities.
