9:39 am: GDP numbers do not disappoint but in fact inspire the market: SBI Ecowrap

The State Bank of India's research report Ecowrap stated that the GDP numbers released on Tuesday evening do not disappoint, considering the persistent inflationary pressure and recalcitrant Omicron variant shadowing activities of last quarter.

The Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation (MoSPI) on Tuesday released the GDP numbers.  India's gross domestic product (GDP) grew at a slower pace at 4.1 per cent in the January- March quarter. For the full fiscal year, the GDP is estimated to grow at 8.7 per cent in 2021-2022 as compared to a contraction of 6.6 per cent in 2020-21.

"During Q4, apart from manufacturing, all other sectors showed positive growth. Manufacturing declined by 0.2% indicating the slight impact of Omicron variant induced lockdowns. Construction also showed tepid growth of 2.0%. The sequential seasonally adjusted GDP growth is lower than the non-seasonally adjusted GDP growth for Q4 over the past. In FY22 Q4, real GDP growth is 6.7% qoq, however the seasonally adjusted real GDP growth is only 0.71%, showing only a modest improvement over the past quarter and loss of growth momentum," it stated.

9:36 am: Market direction looks uncertain: Geojit

 VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services said, "A clear trend is unlikely to emerge in the market in the near-term. At lower levels DIIs and retail investors will buy, pushing the market up; at higher levels FPIs will sell, pushing the market down.

The dominant factor determining the market trend, globally, will be inflation and how far central banks, particularly the Fed, will go in hiking rates to contain inflation.

India's GDP growth for FY22 has come at 8.7% and the growth rate for FY23 is likely to be around 7. 2 % ( RBI estimates) making India the fastest growing large economy in the world for 2 years consecutively. India has the potential to sustain this growth momentum for many more years, translating into impressive earnings growth. This partly explains the premium stock valuations in India.

Investors can follow a cautious investment strategy in this uncertain context, buying high quality stocks which will benefit from growth recovery. Leading financials, IT, cement, telecom and segments of autos appear sound investment bets."

8:45 am: Expert take

Prashanth Tapse, Vice President (Research), Mehta Equities said, "Going by the early action at SGX Nifty, key local benchmark indices are likely to wobble in today's early trade, as there are lingering worries over the implications of soaring inflation and tighter monetary policy on the growth momentum. The street suspects that the Fed and also the RBI will move aggressively to raise rates and that could cause a recession. India VIX, which measures the expected volatility in the market, has moved to 20.47 levels, indicating intra-day volatility."

8:35 am: Expert take

Palak Kothari, Research Associate, Choice Broking said, "Nifty has given closing above 21-hourly moving average which indicates sustain above the same can show upside movement in the counter. However, the momentum indicators MACD and Stochastic were trading with a negative crossover on an hourly chart which suggested a southward journey in the counter. The Nifty may find strong support around 16,400 levels, while on the upside 16,750 may act as an immediate hurdle. On the other hand, Bank Nifty has support at 34,800 levels while resistance at 36,000 levels."
