Benchmarks to get positive start following Asian peers


Indian equity benchmarks extended their fall for the fifth straight session and ended lower with losses of over two percent on Thursday, as investors remained worried ahead of Index of Industrial Production (IIP) data for March and crucial retail inflation (CPI) reading for April, which will be released later today. A broader decline in global stocks following U.S. consumer price data also dented investor sentiment. The markets made a gap down opening, as traders were concerned with private report that tightening of policy rates by major central banks, including the RBI, would adversely impact demand in the next 6-8 months and slow down the recovery process. Some anxiety was also among the local traders with private report has lowered its forecasts for India's economic growth in the next two fiscal years, saying a global slowdown, surging oil prices and weak domestic demand would take a toll on Asia's third-largest economy. It said gross domestic product growth will be 7.6% for fiscal 2023 and 6.7% for fiscal 2024, 30 basis points lower than the previous estimates. Benchmarks enlarged their losses in late afternoon session, amid a private report stating that India Inc stares at a further decline in operating margins and profitability in the coming quarters owing to the twin blows of a depreciation in the value of the rupee against major currencies and a rise in interest rates after a surprise intervention by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) last week.

A separate report released by the Labor Department unexpectedly showed a slight increase in first-time claims for US unemployment benefits in the week ended May 7th. The Labor Department said initial jobless claims crept up to 203,000, an increase of 1,000 from the previous week's revised level of 202,000.

Meanwhile, a pending European Union (EU) ban on oil from Russia, a key supplier of crude and fuels to the bloc, is anticipated to further tighten global supplies.

Asian markets are trading mostly in green on Friday with MSCI's broadest index outside Japan rising 1.3 percent despite a mixed session on Wall Street overnight. Indian markets plummeted on Thursday amid a global sell-off as lingering worries surrounding inflation and rising interest rates spooked investors.

As per the Index of Industrial Production (IIP) data released by the National Statistical Office (NSO), the manufacturing sector's output grew 0.9 per cent in March 2022. However, some cautiousness may come as India's headline inflation galloped for a seventh straight month to touch an 8-year high of 7.79 per cent in April on rising food and fuel prices, raising the odds of an interest rate hike by the RBI early next month to tame prices. Meanwhile, ratings agency Crisil said price rise is getting broad-based, and the Reserve Bank is likely to respond with rate hikes of up to 1 percentage point in FY23. Traders will be concerned as Finance Secretary TV Somanathan said India's economic growth rate is likely to slow if the central bank hikes interest rates.
