Benchmarks likely to make pessimistic start amid weak global cues


Snapping a three-day losing streak, Indian equity benchmarks ended higher on Friday, led by a strong buying support in the index heavyweights ITC, Mahindra & Mahindra and Dr. Reddy's Lab. After making positive start, key indices swung between losses and gains, as traders got anxious with the finance ministry said the current elevated level of international crude price, should it persist for a long time, may come in the way of India achieving a real economic growth rate of 8%-plus in FY23 and pose upside risks to inflation as well. But, markets rallied sharply in afternoon deals, as the monetary policy committee (MPC) decided to hold repo rate at 4% and the reverse repo rate at 3.35%. While the RBI's rate-setting panel maintained its accommodative stance, it also voted unanimously to focus on withdrawal of accommodation to ensure that inflation remains within the target going forward, while supporting growth. Sentiments were also upbeat as RBI Governor Bimal Jalan has said that the country's economy is in good shape as India's GDP growth rate and foreign exchange reserve are high. Notwithstanding economic uncertainties triggered by the Russia-Ukraine war that is also impacting the global supply chain, Jalan said it is not going to affect India's economic performance. Some solace also came with a private report that with the e-way bills generated for inter-state trade in goods under the goods and services tax (GST) regime touching a record in March, the monthly GST collections will likely hit an all-time high of around Rs 1.5 trillion in April (March transactions). Adding to the optimism, Revenue Secretary Tarun Bajaj has said India's tax collections soared to a record high of Rs 27.07 lakh crore in the fiscal year ended March 31 (FY22) compares with budget estimate of Rs 22.17 lakh crore. The rise in tax collections was mainly on account of jump in mop-up from income and other direct taxes as well as indirect taxes. Finally, the BSE Sensex rose 412.23 points or 0.70% to 59,447.18 and the CNX Nifty was up by 144.80 points or 0.82% to 17,784.35.

Street had expected wholesale inventories to shoot up by 2.1 percent compared to the 0.8 percent increase originally reported for the previous month. Next week, traders are likely to keep a close eye on reports on consumer and producer price inflation, retail sales and industrial production. The data may impact the outlook for interest rates amid recent indications the Federal Reserve plans to tighten monetary policy more aggressively than previously anticipated.

RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das-led Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) has decided unanimously to keep the repo rate unchanged at 4%. This is the first monetary policy for FY23. The rate remained unchanged for the eleventh time in a row. The MPC also decided to continue with its accommodative stance of policy. Traders also took support with RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das' statement that the Indian economy has large forex reserves and that it stands ready and resolute to defend the economy. On the global front, dollar index strengthened to 100 for the first time in nearly two years on Friday, supported by the prospect of a more aggressive pace of Federal Reserve interest rate hikes.
