Stock Market Highlights: Sensex and Nifty hit 2-month lows amid global sell-off and rupee at record low

Mini

Stock Market Highlights: Indian equity benchmarks BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty50 slid to fresh two-month closing lows on Monday, extending losses to a second straight session. Weakness across global markets on concerns about rising interest rates and a tightening lockdown in Shanghai that fuelled worries about global economic growth dampened the sentiment on Dalal Street. Barring IT, all sectors were in the red. Oil & gas, financial, consumer and metal shares were the biggest drags on both headline indices. Broader markets suffered deep cuts, with the Nifty Midcap 100 and Nifty Smallcap 100 indices falling around two percent each.

  • Rupee depreciation a short-term margin tailwind for IT space: Gurmeet Chadha

    Gurmeet Chadha, Co-Founder and CEO of Complete Circle Consultants, believes currency depreciation is a short-term margin tailwind for the IT space.

    "If there is sustained depreciation, it does get priced into the contracts either on renewables or both in terms of fresh contracts... It's a very competitive world out there... This is a year in which you have to pay reasonably for the growth you are projecting," he tells CNBC-TV18.

  • Earnings downgrades of 3-5% not ruled out with modest inflation impact: BNP Paribas India's Abhiram Eleswarapu

    Abhiram Eleswarapu, Head of India Equity at BNP Paribas India, tells CNBC-TV18 that headline earnings haven't really been impacted by inflation so far. "We haven't seen any earnings downgrades so far to be honest and that's mainly because you had several upstream companies or commodity suppliers where earnings have been upgraded, and energy companies, for example, which have offset the downgrades that you've seen on the IT or consumer discretionary sides," he says. 

    "We're yet to see a second order impact of inflation, which is when demand starts to get hurt when prices rise. Now, that has not yet happened," he adds.

  • Indian market has been remarkably strong, stable: Richard Harris

    The Indian market has been remarkably strong among major world markets, Richard Harris, Chief Executive at Port Shelter Investment Management, tells CNBC-TV18. "It's difficult to sort of really see the reasons for that, except perhaps to say that maybe India is getting slightly less connected to the rest of the world. Of course, there are big trade issues, but India has had a lot of issues of its own," he says. 

    "Before it has had inflation where other countries haven't, and it has had interest rates where other countries pretty well haven't. To a certain extent, there is some early protection for the Indian market and the kind of fall that we're seeing at the moment," he adds. 

  • Market trying to digest rate hike: Andrew Holland
