Stock Market India: Sensex, Nifty open in green ahead of RBI

Indian equity benchmarks fell after seeing-saw between gains and losses in early trade on Wednesday, extending losses for the fourth straight day ahead of a widely expected rate hike, with traders eyeing RBI’s outlook in its fight against domestic inflation. But waiting for details.

The BSE Sensex index fell 44.86 points to 62,581.50 after opening in the green in early trade, and the broader NSE Nifty index was in the red after opening marginally higher.

Prashant Tapase, Senior Vice President (Research), Mehta Equities said, “Markets may witness volatile trend in early trade on Wednesday amid weakness in other Asian indices as RBI’s monetary policy meeting on interest rates is expected.” Investors will be watching closely.”

“RBI’s statement on inflation and growth outlook will determine the market sentiment in the near term. Technically, investors should avoid taking large leveraged positions till Nifty crosses the all-time high of 18,888 points. In the sand The line is at Nifty level. Support at 18,417,” he said.

The index had moved to an all-time high on recent signs of easing inflation and easing crude oil prices, which is beneficial for India, a significant crude importer.

“We are transitioning from worrying about inflation and interest rates to one where negative growth is waning and profits are shrinking,” he said.

Big banks in the US are bracing for a poorer economy in 2019 as rising rates and inflation hurt consumer demand. Top executives at Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, and Bank of America sounded pessimistic in their Tuesday comments.

“Economic growth is slowing,” Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon told Reuters. “When I talk to my clients, they seem extremely alert.”
