Summary

Stock Market Highlights: Indian equity benchmarks BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty50 failed to stay above the flatline in a volatile session on Wednesday, after the RBI announced a 50-bps hike in the key lending rate along expected lines and raised its inflation projections for the year ending March 2023. The central bank's Monetary Policy Committee retained its GDP projections for the period. Losses in oil & gas and FMCG shares pulled the headline indices lower, though gains in metal and select financial stocks lent some support. Broader markets mirrored the trend in the main indices, with the Nifty Midcap 100 and Nifty Smallcap 100 indices falling 0.5 percent and 0.3 percent respectively.

RBI's optimistic with its GDP projection: MarketsMojo's Mohit Batra

Mohit Batra, Founder and CEO of MarketsMojo, says the RBI's inflation projections are along line with expectations. "We expect more rate hikes from the RBI in the coming months. While predicting inflation, the RBI has assumed crude at $105 per barrel from its previous estimate of $100 per barrel. Right now, crude is trading at $120 per barrel. Therefore, there is a high probability that the inflation number may get revised upwards in the coming monetary policy," he adds.
