2:05 pm: Expert quote on stock market

Shibani Kurian, Senior EVP & Head- Equity Research, Kotak Mahindra AMC said, "Indian equity markets continued to remain volatile amid worry on rising interest rates, the Russia-Ukraine war and global commodity inflation. Global yields rose higher as a slew of hawkish remarks from central banks reinforced expectations of tightening.

Despite all the macro headwinds, Indian economy continued to show uptick in growth as activity normalisation gathered pace. High frequency indicators are have been improving in the past few months. April GST collections were highest ever at Rs 1.67 trillion. Total credit growth is witnessing an improvement. Credit growth stood at 10.1% YoY in first fortnight of April.

Market participants would likely be watching out for corporate earnings of Q4FY22 and management commentary on demand and margins for FY23. Duration of Russia-Ukraine war, interest rate hikes by global central banks, supply chain disruptions and commodity inflation would be some of the other key factors."
