Markets may begin the day in Red today

Published on: 8:30 am

  • Indian equity markets are likely to open in the red today. US inflation rate for June is more than expectations. Inflation rate in June in the country stood at 9.1%. This is the highest monthly inflation rate that the country has recorded since 1981. US Federal Reserve is therefore very likely to maintain its hawkish stand on inflation. An interest rate hike, that is more than expectations, will further strength FPI outflows from Indian equity markets. On the positive side, any further decline in equity markets is a good opportunity for long term investors to buy stocks at lower prices.

Dow Jones saw intra day fall of over 465 points before recovering all the losses till profit booking in the last hour saw it close, down by 200 points.Nasdaq traded lower by over 250 points before closing almost flat, down by 17 point .Bond yields hit 3.05% in intra day before closing lower at 2.90%.
