US Share Market News

1. Performance Overview:

  • On Friday, the US stocks climbed as inflation data met expectations, supporting the possibility of future rate cuts despite tech sector weakness.
  • The surge on Wall Street was also supported by the PCE price index data that matched expectations for April. Although inflation cooled slightly, it remained above the Fed's 2% target.

2. Economic Indicators:

  • Traders estimate about a 47% chance of a 25 basis point rate cut in September, alongside a 45% chance of no change, according to CME Fedwatch.
  • Attention shifts to the upcoming May non-farm payrolls data for further insights into the labour market, crucial for the Fed's rate decisions.
  • The central bank's upcoming meeting is anticipated to maintain rates, but any hints about future decisions will be closely monitored.

3. Sector-Specific Movements:

  • The Dow surged 1.5% to close at 38,686.32. S&P 500 climbed 0.8% to 5,277.51. Nasdaq Composite slipped slightly by 0.1% to 16,735.02. Despite weekly declines, all showed monthly gains.

Other Asset Classes

1. Treasury Yields:

  • On Friday, the US Treasury yields declined following the release of the inflation data, which largely matched economist expectations. The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield dropped by over 5 basis points, settling at 4.501%.

2. Currency:

  • The dollar index fluctuated within a corrective range on Friday, ultimately closing the session lower at 104.5.

3. Commodities:

  • US crude oil had its worst month of the year in May, dropping 6%, while global benchmark Brent fell 7.1%. The WTI July contract closed at $77.99 a barrel, down 1.18%, and the Brent July contract closed at $81.62 a barrel.
  • Gold prices eased on Friday as investors digested a US inflation report that met estimates. Despite this, expectations of a Federal Reserve rate cut this year kept gold on track for a fourth straight monthly gain. Spot gold fell 0.7% to $2,325.67 per ounce, while US gold futures dropped 0.9% to $2,346.4.

Asian Markets

1. General Trends:

  • On the other hand, South Korea’s Kospi rose 1.26%, while the smaller-cap Kosdaq was 0.42% higher.

India Market Outlook

1. GIFT Nifty Projection:

  • Gift Nifty indicates a gap-up opening for the Indian market, with exit polls predicting a larger BJP coalition win than in 2019. Nifty is expected to open near last week's high of 23100 and then consolidate with a positive bias amid stock-specific activity.

2. Nifty Short-Term Outlook:

  • Benchmark indices ended a two-week rise, closing sharply lower due to profit booking ahead of the general election outcome. The Nifty fell 1.86% to 22,530, while the Bank Nifty remained flat at 48,984.
  • The index has formed a large bear candle, indicating profit-booking at higher levels. The recent five-session decline has eased the overbought condition in the daily stochastic after a strong rally.
  • Since the start of 2024, the Nifty has been trading in a rising channel. We expect it to move higher towards 23,300-23,500 in the coming weeks, as long as it stays above the lower band at 22,000.

3. Intraday Levels:

  • Nifty: Intraday resistance is situated at 23230, followed by 23400 levels. Conversely, downside support is located at 22950, followed by 22800.
  • Bank Nifty: Intraday resistance is positioned at 50530, followed by 51000, while downside support is found at 49880, followed by 49550.
  • Fin Nifty: Intraday resistance is positioned at 22300, followed by 22480, while downside support is found at 22050, followed by 21950.

Derivative Market Analysis

1. Nifty:

  • The option chain analysis for Nifty indicates a significant call OI at the 23,000 level and an immediate call OI at 22,500, suggesting a potential upward move if the price stays above 22,500.
  • Major put OI is at 22,000, with immediate put OI at 22,500, providing support at that level. This sets Nifty's immediate range for the week between 22,000 and 23,000, with possible directional movement if these levels are breached.
  • The put-call ratio has risen to 1.12, and a 14.2% decline in open interest alongside a 1.0% price fall indicates long unwinding.
