Although the minutes indicated the end of jumbo rate hikes, the policy makers were uncertain on when will be the end point of the rate hikes.

On the price front after a doji candlestick formation on Tuesday a high wave candlestick has been formed indicating start of bullish momentum after a brief correction. Support remains near $1740-1735/oz zone which needs to penetrated on closing and sustaining basis. Till then there is good probability of a recovery back to $1762/oz followed by $1778/oz.

Crude: WTI Crude oil trades flat near $77.80/bbl after a near 4% fall in the previous session. Price ap on Russian oil by G7 above the current market level is putting a downward pressure on price. As per the EU official they are considering a price cap on Russian oil between $65 to $70 which is around the level Russian crude is trading at. However, Russia has indicated that it will pull off the exports to nations who are joining the price cap. This will eventually be bullish for prices as supply tightness might trigger buying. Additionally, oil price also got a hit amid rise in product inventories as indicated by the EIA inventory report. On the positive side crude oil got some support from US Dollar weakness after the release of FOMC minutes. On the price front WTI crude oil didn’t sustain above $82/bbl level which was the resistance. However, the correction in oil prices might deepen further only if it closes and sustains below $75/bbl, the recent low which is also a double / identical bottom. Till then a range move expected between $82-$76/bbl. Bulls need to close it above $82 if they want to take it to $85//bbl.

Ashika Stock Broking on today’s market: The psychological level of 18000 would be the trend deciding level for the market.

Tirthankar Das, technical & derivative analyst, retail, Ashika Stock Broking Ltd: On the technical front, Nifty ended with a bearish candle as the close was lower than the open on the daily chart however presence on a higher high-low continues to have a bullish overtone in the market. It is at that phase where a prolonged consolidation might be in the making and forming a higher base, setting itself equipped to eye the all-time high of 18600 in the near term. Though it can be established that the market has halted its slide taking support from its 20dma and the lower area of the gap up the region and 18050-18100 might be the elevated bottom for the market followed by 17950 which coincides with 23.6% retracement of the entire rally since Oct’22. However, the psychological level of 18000 would be the trend-deciding level for the market. A positive stance in the market would remain due to sharp reversals in the Dollar index, US yields have helped to taper down anxiety around further aggressive rate hikes and drop in crude oil prices which is supportive for Indian Equities. Against that backdrop, the Index has also cooled off from its overbought price reading presently trading above the 60-level mark (14-period RSI). During the day, Nifty is likely to open on a positive note as overnight US Market lifted since Fed officials see smaller rate hikes coming ‘soon,’. From this perspective, it would be wiser to hunt for the lower level at 18220-18265 for initiating long positions for an upside target of 18450 followed by 18600.

New rules for social media influencers to be out in December

The Union government is preparing to release guidelines governing social media influencers next month, promising stiff fines for those who fail to disclose their brand partnerships.

The guidelines, similar to the rules released in June to prevent misleading advertisements, are already in the final stage, a person aware of the matter said.

“These days, young people make purchase decisions based on social media content put out by influencers. Unlike in the case of an actor endorsing a product in a television ad, it is difficult to figure out if the influencers actually use the products or not. Sometimes, people may not know the influencer, unlike in the case of actors; so, disclosure is going to be very important,” the person cited above said on the condition of anonymity. (Read More)

Apple supplier Foxconn apologises for hiring blunder at COVID-hit China plant

Apple’s major supplier Foxconn said on Thursday a “technical error” occurred when hiring new recruits at a COVID-hit iPhone factory in China and apologised to workers after the company was rocked by fresh labour unrest.

Men smashed surveillance cameras and windows as hundreds of workers protested at the plant in Zhengzhou city on Wednesday, in rare scenes of open dissent in China sparked by claims of overdue pay and frustration over severe COVID-19 restrictions.

Workers said on videos circulated on social media that they had been informed that Foxconn intended to delay bonus payments. Some workers also complained they were forced to share dormitories with colleagues who had tested positive for COVID.

“Our team has been looking into the matter and discovered a technical error occurred during the onboarding process,” Foxconn said in a statement.

“We apologize for an input error in the computer system and guarantee that the actual pay is the same as agreed and the official recruitment posters.” (Reuters)

Lump sum flows into MF equity schemes lowest since November 2020

Lump sum inflows into the equity segment, excluding new fund offers (NFOs), stood at 17,900 crore in October, the lowest since November 2020, according to a report by Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.

The slowdown has been on account of high net worth individuals (HNIs) waiting for a better entry point as the stock market nears the record high, weakness in inflows from rural customers, and reduced NFO activity in the equity segment, the report said.
