Vineet Bagri, Managing Partner- TrustPlutus Wealth said, "Overnight western markets gave up their early gains due to persistent selling in tech, leading to a broader sell off. The inflation print was higher than expectations, fueling the call for more aggressive rate hikes and weak global growth in CY23. And with the dollar index strengthening to 104, FIIs continue selling the emerging markets space. Also, DII buying is acting like a much-needed shock absorber in our market. However early indicators suggest that retail investors have also started taking money off the table. Although equity markets are in a synchronized fall globally in CYTD'22, we need to take notice of a major positive which is that the Nifty 50 is down 9% while the other major indices like the S&P 500 (-17%), Nasdaq (-27%), Kospi (-15%), Hang Seng (-17%), (Taiwan -14%), and Germany (-13%) have seen deeper cuts. While the macro indicators are weakening, we are seeing some green shoots too especially the recent cool off in commodities like aluminum, copper, zinc, steel and iron ore. However, this is a welcome relief as India is not a commodity export driven market. Although expected global GDP growth rates for CY 22/23 are being lowered, India is perhaps the only major economy expected to grow at an average 7% over the next two years. Thus, we believe that once the selling pressure abates and commodity prices/inflation start cooling off, Indian market should see a strong bounceback."
