Sensex Today Live: Indian shares fell on Thursday, dragged by a slide in information technology stocks after the U.S. Federal Reserve signalled that the interest rate hikes might continue for longer than expected.

“Indian markets have sharply reacted to major decisions by U.S. Fed and slide in the Wall Street, in the short term, but there is no cause for concern as the dichotomy between Indian and U.S. markets is rising”, said G Chokkalingam, founder, Equinomics Research & Advisory.

Fed Chair Jerome Powell said that the U.S. central bank will maintain a “restrictive enough” policy stance to control inflation.

U.S. central bankers see the policy rate, now in the 4.25%-4.5% range after Wednesday’s 50-basis-point increase, rising to 5.1% by the end of next year, according to the median estimate in the Fed’s quarterly summary of economic projections published at the end of its two-day meeting.

That is a half percentage point higher than they forecast in September.

Wall Street equities slid overnight after the statement, with all the key indexes logging losses.

Asian markets declined, with the MSCI Asia ex Japan sliding 0.99%.

Among the major sectoral indexes, Nifty IT fell the most, shedding over 1%. All ten constituents of the IT index declined.

Equinomics’ Chokkalingam said that it was time to buy select IT firms as the correction would “lead to a substantial contraction in valuations”, making the stocks attractive.

Among individual stocks, Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corp shed 5% after the government said it will sell an up to 5% stake in the company.

Indian markets have also opened negative following US markets, following the expectations of recession / slowdown and more hawkish comments from Fed. However, this is after a reasonable rally post US and India inflation data. Markets have not completely given up the gains. While there is hope of softer Fed action, the risk is now shifting to “hard landing”. For India and the RBI, there is the cushion of domestic economy holding with the external headwinds. RBI policy raised 35 bp this time, but if inflation comes below 6% for another time, there is a larger scope for pause

Overnight interbank call money rate at 44-month high

India’s overnight interbank call money rate rises on Thursday, as banks borrow funds to meet outflows towards advance tax payments, traders say. Interbank call money rate hits 6.40%, its highest since April 2019, while the central bank’s repo rate stands at 6.25%. Advance tax payments generally take place around Dec 15-16.

The US Fed hikes the policy rate by 50bps to 4.25-4.5%, as expected. However, the FOMC members’ projections revise the peak rate higher to 5-5.25% (up 50bp from Sep projections). Notwithstanding some initial signs of weakening economy, the FED (rightly) continued to worry about strong labour market. Interestingly, although growth projection was revised down (to 0.5% from 1.2%) for CY23, the unemployment rate revisions were only marginal (4.6% to 4.4%). Overall, we are more convinced that while a FED pause could come by mid-CY23, a cut is unlikely before CY24 now. This move and stance by Fed could trigger small correction in Indian market which has been outperforming YTD. We dont see a case for deep correction in our markets given the drop in crude and commodity prices and likely margin expansion for many sectors like cement, consumer, auto and speciality chemicals. Nifty should cross, 20,000 mark some around Budget i.e. Feb 2023.

Market View: Apurva Sheth, Head of Market Perspectives & Research, Samco Securities

Just like they say all good things come to an end…all ‘not so good’ things also comes to an end. The world was grappling with high inflation, not seen in the last 40 years. The Fed was late to act, but nevertheless, they did it with four steepest rate hikes of 75 bps each. However, the inflation figures coming in at 7.1%, the Fed Chief has delivered what he promised, a slowdown in rate hikes. The markets have not reacted positively because the Fed has increased its projection of terminal interest rate from 4.6% to 5.1%.

Back home, how this will impact domestic interest rate regime is going to be interesting.

RBI has dodged the being in a box and kept a free hand in deciding policy rates depending on the inflation and growth numbers at home and the US Fed’s interest rates. With US interest near its peak, RBI will also keep a close eye and could probably be the first central bank to stop hiking rates since it was amongst the first one to hike.

India will sell an up to 5% stake in Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corp (IRCTC) , the company said in a filing on Wednesday, as the government seeks to meet a steep divestment target for the year. The government is looking to sell a 2.5% stake in the state-owned firm at 680 Indian rupees per share, with an option to additionally offload 2.5%. At that price, offloading 5% of IRCTC could fetch around 27.2 billion rupees ($329.90 million), a Reuters estimate showed.

Even though the Fed downshifted the rate hike to 50 bp as expected, the tone of the commentary was unexpectedly hawkish. The FOMC statement, “the ongoing hikes will be appropriate to reach a sufficiently restrictive stance that returns inflation to 2% over time” is hawkish but the market seems to ignore this expecting inflation to cool down earlier than Fed’s expectations. Globally, equity markets would be watching out for the ECB and BoE decisions today, which are also likely to be 50 bp hikes. The Indian market, though not completely decoupled from the mother market US, has been charting a slightly different path exhibiting surprising resilience even in the face of global weakness. This is due to India’s superior growth and earnings prospects, going forward. However, high valuations and rising interest rates are likely to restrain the ongoing rally. Fixed income assets are becoming attractive.
