    Market quote from Vinod Nair of Geojit Financial Services

    "Domestic indices witnessed bouts of volatility amid weakness in global markets, IT and Pharma sectors. But it was well countered by recovery in banking, auto and metal stocks. Developed markets traded negatively due to slow hiring plans announced by blue chips MNC like Apple Inc. in anticipation of global economic slowdown. However, due to the Indian economy’s strong fundamentals, we believe that the immediate impact of the slowdown in the domestic economy will be milder than of global peers."

    Market view by Nitin Raheja of Julius Baer India

    "The Indian markets have after their sharp correction in the early part of the year, got into a time/price correction mode over the last few months. While the index seems to reflect a bull market correction single stocks have corrected far more steeply reflecting a correction more like one seen in bear markets. The overall market depth has been extremely narrow, resulting in a phase where index investing has been a more profitable trade.

    Going ahead however we believe volatility should settle down as the momentum and quantum of rate hikes become known events. Further commodity prices have also shown signs of easing off late making us believe we are over peak inflation. The resilience of the Indian economy and absence of any fresh negatives should result in a better performance of the markets in the second half of the year."

    Perspective on Rupee hitting a record low today

    “Rupee fell as broader strengthen in the dollar continued ahead of the important FOMC policy statement that will be released next week.

    Nifty outlook by Anand James - Chief Market Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

    “Despite a close above 16,200 described yesterday as the wall of worry, inability to clear the recent peak of 16,275 convincingly, validates the modest objectives that we had set out with at the beginning of the week. This sets up an environment for a pullback to 16,145, before consolidating and re attempting another push higher, or extended slippage to 16,065 that could close yesterday’s gap. That said, we do not expect a collapse as long as 15,970 attracts bargain hunting again and shall until then, remain committed to the 16,800 view for the near term.”

    Market quote by V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

    ""FPI selling, which has been a major drag on the Market since October 21, is showing a marginally different trend. Even though FPIs continue to be net sellers, they bought on 4 days this month. This means some FPIs are seeing value in some segments. The sharp corrections in IT stocks have made their valuations attractive. High quality financials, whose values were depressed by sustained FPI selling, are bouncing back since their fundamentals are improving. Commodity price moderation is imparting resilience to commodity users like autos, FMCG and consumer durables. Increasing capex is assisting the capital goods segment. These are important indicators for investors. The near-term is likely to witness stock specific action in response to the Q1 results."
