Now lemme give you a quick glance on the state of the markets.
Asian stocks fell Monday as Russia’s war in Ukraine grinds into a second month and the risk of an economic downturn from tightening US monetary policy hangs over markets. Shares lost ground in Japan, while S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 contracts retreated, signaling a pause in the global rally in equities from the lows sparked by the conflict.
Elsewhere, the yield on 10-year Treasuries was at 2.47%. A gauge of the dollar pushed higher. Oil prices fell more than $3 in early trade on prospects of a drop in fuel demand in China after authorities in Shanghai said they would shut the country’s financial hub for a COVID-19 testing blitz over nine days.
That said, here’s what is making news.
The benchmark Nifty is likely to find support at 17,000 this week, and a sustained move above 17,350 can take the index higher, possibly to 17,500 levels, said technical analysts. Investors should look to buy the dips until 16,900 levels are breached on the downside on the Nifty, said analysts.
Government bonds with long-term maturities are finding takers among some rich investors who are looking for safe debt instruments that are liquid and more tax efficient. Financial planners say these investors are buying sovereign papers that mature 25 to 40 years from now and would fetch them returns of 7.25-7.35% annually.
About 60% of the country’s top 500 stocks are trading below their 200-day moving average (DMA) – a long-term trend indicator. When a stock or an index trades below its 200-DMA, it is said to be in a bearish trend and vice versa. Out of the Nifty-500 index constituents, around 300 were trading below their 200-day moving averages on Friday.
