Indian market is copying the global sell-off. US markets fell around 3% on Friday and other major markets are also showing a sharp fall.
Experts are saying that ‘rising crude oil prices, interest rate hikes are kind of a situation that happened just before past recessions in the US. Also US bond market is having an inverted yield curve, indicating an economic recession.
The global market sell-off will continue for a few more days. US Fed meeting this Wednesday may fuel the current fall. Analysts are expecting a minimum of 175 bps interest rate hike in the U.S this September.
Talking about our market, India's May CPI data will be released at 5:30 PM today. The estimate is at 7.1% against 7.8% for April month. This is still above RBI limits, which means we will definitely face aggressive interest rate hikes in the coming months.
Nifty is trading near this year’s low, which is very alarming and will be watching 15,500 on the downside.
Bank Nifty has again reached its support zone above 33k. But we can’t expect to see an immediate rebound.
The market is having a strong downside momentum, not a good time to consider new swing positions. But it looks like the coming months are a great opportunity for investing in a disciplined-slow pace manner. Take these days to find fundamentally strong stocks and just plan your future!
