9:55 am: Expert quote
VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services
"The dominant theme impacting equity markets globally is the synchronised global monetary tightening and the consequent fears of economic slowdown. The probability of the US slipping into recession is much higher now. Markets are discounting these concerns. The PE of S&P 500 is now around 16, close to the long-term average. Europe is trading at around 11 times. Markets will bottom out earlier than the economy does.
In India, valuations have declined, but are even now above long-term average. So, FPIs will continue to sell, capping a relief rally which can come any time. It is impossible to predict the market bottom. Ideal Investment strategy now should be calibrated buying in high quality growth stocks. Mutual fund SIP investors can consider increasing the amount of investment."
9:17 am: Market opens lower
Sensex falls 171 points to 51,495 and Nifty loses 117 points to 15,260.
8:40 am: Pre-opening comments
Prashanth Tapse, Vice President (Research), Mehta Equities
"After yesterday's drubbing, markets may exhibit caution in early trades with the undertone continuing to remain bearish following overnight slump in US markets. Investors remain concerned that central banks' commitment to bringing inflation down will seriously damage a fragile economic recovery. Further, crude oil prices are at $115 a barrel which is way above the assumption of $105 a barrel made by the RBI for its full-year inflation projections. The net outflow by FIIs from equities has reached Rs 1.81 lakh crore so far in 2022, while in the June month so far, FIIs have net sold Rs 34,270 crore, which is creating uncertainty among the investors."

Osho Krishan, Sr. Analyst - Technical & Derivative Research, Angel One
"Going forward, our market is likely to remain volatile in the near term and is expected to mirror the moves from the global peers. Looking at the recent fall, it is advised to avoid undue risk and stay light on positions. Also, one needs to keep a close tab on the geopolitical developments and avoid aggressive bets till the volatility looms over."
8:20 am: SGX Nifty
The Indian market is likely to open higher today as SGX Nifty rose 30 points to 15,340. The Singapore Stock Exchange is considered to be the first indication of the opening of the Indian market.
