Stock Market Highlights: Financial and oil & gas shares give Sensex a 462-point lift — Nifty50 one point shy of 15,700

Summary

Stock Market Highlights: Indian equity benchmarks BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty50 held on to much of their intraday gains in a strong session on Friday. A slide in benchmark commodity prices offered some respite from broadening inflationary pressures to investors globally, amid concerns about aggressive hikes in COVID-era interest rates and their impact on economic growth. Financial, oil & gas, FMCG and auto stocks were the biggest contributors to the gain in headline indices. Broader markets followed suit, with the Nifty Midcap 100 and Nifty Smallcap 100 indices rising 1.4 percent and 1.8 percent respectively.

USD-INR pair lingering in bullish territory due to fears over a global recession: Heena Naik

Heena Naik, Research Analyst-Currency at Angel One, is of the view that the USD-INR is lingering in bullish territory due to fears about a global recession that have triggered huge outflows from debt and equity markets in 2022. If the rupee breaches the 78.40 level against the greenback, there is a possibility of the next key level being at 78.60, she says.  

"A fall in the forward premiums of the USD-INR spot due to the RBI’s trading strategy and plausible dollar shortage has led to bigger carry trade unwinds. This rangebound-to-bullish bias is going to remain in the USD-INR spot for some time," Naik adds.
