Stock Market LIVE Updates: Sensex jumps over 350 points, Nifty near 17,800; HDFC rises 2%, Gland Pharma sheds 3%

Sensex Today Live Updates: Indian shares were trading higher on Thursday, buoyed by strength in metal stocks and other Asian equities, as sentiment improved on growing expectations that major central banks may tone down their aggressive stance on rate hikes.

The indexes snapped seven straight sessions of gains in the previous session. The market was closed on Wednesday for a holiday.

Gains in the domestic market, however, are likely to be limited, as global oil prices rose in early Asian trade on Thursday after surging more than 3% in the previous session, driven by record U.S. crude exports.

India is the world’s third-largest importer and consumer of oil, and a rise in crude prices have a direct impact on inflation.

Foreign institutional investors sold a net 2.47 billion Indian rupees ($30.12 million) worth of equities on Tuesday, while domestic investors bought net 8.73 billion rupees worth of shares, as per provisional data available with the National Stock Exchange.

Asian shares rose on Thursday on hopes that major central banks could start slowing the pace of interest rate hikes in the coming months. The MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was 1.59% higher and set for third straight session of gains.

In early domestic trading, the Nifty’s metal index , rising 2%, was the best performer among other sectors. JSW Steel Ltd and Hindalco Industries Ltd led gains on the Nifty 50 index, climbing more than 3% each.

Looking to move Axis Bank up in terms of its ranking as a bank in India, says Amitabh Chaudhary

There is a near-term under current of ‘risk-on’ in equity markets globally triggered by expectations that the central banks will start moderating their rate hikes. The cue has come from Canada where their central bank raised rates only by 50 bp against expectations of 75 bp. Markets expect the Fed to moderate rate hikes starting December. Consequently the dollar index has fallen below 110 and the 10-year US bond yield has dipped to 4.03%. This might nudge FPIs to turn buyers imparting strength to the market. Nifty’s recent range of 17500-17800 looks set to be decisively broken on the upper end today. Financials, select autos and capital goods are well set to continue their recent rally. The spike in Brent crude above $95 is a concern.

US economy likely returned to growth last quarter

The problems have hardly gone away. Inflation, still near a 40-year high, is punishing households. Rising interest rates have derailed the housing market and threaten to inflict broader damage. And the outlook for the world economy grows bleaker the longer that Russia’s war against Ukraine drags on.

But for now anyway, the U.S. economy has likely returned to growth after having shrunk in each of the first two quarters of 2022.

At least that’s what economists expect to see Thursday when the Commerce Department issues its first of three estimates of gross domestic product — the broadest measure of economic output — for the July-September period.
