As we discussed yesterday, it is less likely that there is a long-term impact because the Silicon Valley Bank issue is more specific to start-up companies.
The start-ups deposited their money and the bank bought bonds with it. As interest rate was hiked, bond returns went down and when the start-ups which did not get enough funding withdrew their deposits, the bank had to sell their bonds in losses.
But this will certainly have an indirect impact on our markets as Wall Street is getting affected. After all, there is no scam involved and the US government has now intervened to shore up SVB deposits.
India’s Consumer Price Inflation data will be out today.
Keep an eye on Ambuja Cements as there were reports regarding Adani selling its stake.
