MARKET COMMENTARY

Sep-30-2022 08:43

The Sensex and Nifty indices are looking to open with cuts on Friday ahead of the RBI's monetary policy decision. The central bank is expected to raise key repo rate by up to 50 basis points today as it struggles to tame record inflation. The bank has delivered a cumulative 140 bps rate increase so far this year over the last three occasions. Among stocks, rate sensitive stocks such as those of banks, financials, auto and realty pockets will be in focus. That apart, Bajaj Electricals will also be on the radar as the company has bagged an order worth Rs 332.6 cr from Power Grid.

Among others, Adani Enterprises will be added to the Nifty50 index with effect from today.

On Thursday, the 30-share benchmark index ended at 56409.96 down by -188.32 points or by -0.33 % and then NSE Nifty was at 16818.1 down by -40.5 points or by -0.24 %.

On the global front, Wall Street ended sharply lower on Thursday on worries that the US Federal Reserve's aggressive fight against inflation could hobble the US economy, and as investors fretted about a rout in global currency and debt markets.

Shares in the Asia-Pacific traded lower on Friday, the last day of the third quarter, following another sell-off on Wall Street overnight. China’s factory activity data is due later today.

In Japan, the Nikkei 225 slipped 1.32%, and the Topix index fell 0.87%. Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 lost 0.48%. The Kospi in South Korea declined 1%. MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan fell 0.15%.
