Stock market today: Following weak global cues on SVB or Silicon Valley Bank crisis, Indian stock market continue to remain lower for fourth straight session on Tuesday. Key benchmark indices down by half to quarter to one per cent by mid session and around three hour session is still left on Tuesday. According to stock market experts, Indian stocks are crashing due to weak global cues after the Silicon Valley Bank news of bankruptcy. They said that weakness in US dollar and Indian National Rupee (INR), uncertainty over the US Fed's FOMC rate hike decision, FIIs selling from the emerging markets are some other reasons that has dragged Dalal Street for fourth straight session.

Silicon Valley Bank crisis

On why Indian stock market is falling, Avinash Gorakshkar, Head of Research at Profitmart Securities said, "Global market sentiments have gone bearish after the banking crisis in the US that started by Silicon Valley Bank on Thursday last week. After Silicon Valley Bank, Signature Bank collapse has further damaged the market sentiment that has led to weakness in the US dollar rates and Indian currency. This weakness in the US dollar has triggered selling among the FIIs that is also a reason for weakness in Indian stock market for the last four days."

Avinash Gorakshkar of Profitmart went on to add that market is uncertain about the US Fed's FOMC outcome on rate hike. If the US central bank decides to pause interest rate hike, then we can witness some bounce back in the markets. But, if the US Fed officials continues to talk hawkish on interest rate hike to tame inflation, it would further damage the mood of Indian and global markets.

Weakness in Adani group stocks

Avinash Gorakshkar of Profitmart Securities said that weakness in Adani group stocks is also a reason for Indian stock market's nosedive on Tuesday session. Flagship Adani group stock Adani Enterprises share price today dipped over 7 per cent while Adani Ports share price corrected to the tune of 3 per cent. Adani Power share price today hit 5 per cent lower circuit. Adani Green share price is also down to the tune of 3 per cent. He said that ruckus in parliament over Adani group companies is the major reason for fall in Adani group stocks.
