    Stock Market Live Updates: Tradingo Founder Parth Nyati: Indian equity market goldilocks scenario propels bullish momentum; Nifty eyeing 21,315, Bank Nifty aims for 48,000

    A confluence of domestic and global factors is driving a Goldilocks scenario in the Indian equity market. Unwavering political stability, a robust macroeconomic backdrop with healthy GDP growth and subdued inflation, and weakening dollar and US bond yields amid expectations of a 2024 rate cut have fueled bullish momentum. Moreover, a recent slump in crude oil prices has eased inflation pressure, further boosting investor confidence. Adding fuel to the fire, foreign institutional investors (FIIs) are exhibiting signs of FOMO, eager not to miss out on this potential multi-year bull run. With such a compelling confluence of factors, investors are advised to stay invested. 

    The Indian market looks poised for further gains, with Nifty’s immediate upside target sitting at 21315. This rally has the potential to extend towards the 22000 mark, though downside support lies at 20770. Bank Nifty also exhibits bullish momentum, facing immediate resistance at 48000. Above this, a swift climb towards the 50,000 mark could be in store. The 47000–46800 area will be a strong support zone.

    Stock Recommendations: Tata Power: Focus on RE transition to drive growth

    Sharekhan Stock Update- 3R Recommendation


    (CMP: 338, Price Target: 390)

    Company Description

    TPCL is India’s largest integrated private power company present in power generation (capacity of 14,381 MW with 62% from thermal and 38% from renewables), transmission, distribution (largest private sector player with a customer 

    base of 12.4 million), trading and solar EPC (largest solar EPC player in India).

    Key Investment Arguments

    • The power sector is expected to grow strongly on peak power demand-supply shortfall over for next few years; government has set ambitious target of 80 GW of new thermal power and 321 GW of new renewable power (RE) capacities by 2031-32. 

    • Tata Power plans to install ~1.5-2 GW of renewable energy every year with a target to increase its renewable power portfolio to 70% of total portfolio by 2030. 

    • Company has set an aggressive growth target for next 3 years with Revenue/EBITDA/PAT expected to double by FY27 with ~90% of PAT coming from core business (versus 40% in FY23) by FY27E. 

    • TPCL’s focus on high-growth RE business and entry into power transmission would play a crucial role for sustained earnings growth and improved earnings quality. Hence, we maintain a Buy on TPCL with a revised PT of Rs. 390. At the CMP, the stock trades at 2.8x/2.4x its FY2025E/FY2026E P/BV.

    Stock Market Live Updates: TIW Capital quote on US Federal interest rates

    Mohit Ralhan - CEO, TIW Capital on US Feds keeping Interest rates unchanged

    While the Fed decided to keep rates on hold, it did little to push back on the aggressive rate cut pricing by the market participants. Median dot plot for 2024 end showed Fed Funds rate at 4.6%, which was 50 bps lower compared to September projections. The Fed Chair even alluded to the members’ having a discussion on rate cuts.

    The Fed has achieved considerable progress in bringing down inflation without causing serious economic damage. However, there is still room for improvement as core inflation is running above 3%, much above the central bank’s target. Wage growth is also higher than what is consistent with the inflation target. This means that possibility of further tightening is still not completely off the table, but the chances are low. Given the lags with which monetary policy transmission takes place, the FOMC wants to be ahead of the curve by taking into account the risks to growth from higher rates. As inflation heads lower, real rates could become too restrictive if the Fed does not calibrate policy.

    Meeting outcome suggests that FOMC members will keenly monitor any deterioration in economic data or sentiment indicators besides inflation trajectory --

    Stock Market Live Updates: US Federal Reserve’s dovish stance signals potential 2024 rate cuts: market expectations soar

    An early Christmas gift awaited markets as the US Federal Reserve struck the right chord with risk-driven investors following a seemingly dovish stance at its last monetary policy meeting in 2023. Following a series of rate hikes and a hawkish stance in the last 18 months, the central bank changed course as it indicated that three rate cuts looks a possibility in 2024 with further policy tightening out of context currently. We believe that the Fed has now acknowledged that previous rates hikes are working into the economy and a new challenge of managing a drastic slowdown or a probable recession awaits the central bank. Our sense is that 2024 would be a good year for riskier assets overall and would not be surprised to see other major global central banks following suit in the latter half of next year.

    Stock Market Live Updates: OPENING BELL: Sensex and Nifty surge after Fed’s rate hold; sector rotation expected

    Domestic benchmarks, the Sensex and Nifty, surged on Thursday following the US Federal Chief’s definitive statement on freezing interest rates. Analysts foresee continued consolidation and sector rotation. 

    7The 30-share BSE Sensex initiated early trade with a climb of 656.45 points, reaching 70,241.05. Simultaneously, the NSE Nifty saw a gain of 181.40 points, reaching 21,107.75.

    Among the Nifty constituents, Hindalco, Tech Mahindra, Adani Ports, Wipro, and HCL Tech experienced gains, while PowerGrid, Nestle India, Tata Consumer, Asian Paints, and Dr. Reddy’s were among the decliners.

    Earlier, US markets were on fire, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average hitting an all-time high. Gift Nifty at 21,216 against the spot close of 21,033. Most Asian stocks are also on the up in early deals on Thursday, except Japan markets.

    Fed chair Powell signalled that the central bank was done with rate hikes and will start cutting rates next year. Importantly, the dot plot was revised to signal an easing of 75 bps (rates at 4.5-4.75%) in 2024 and 3.5-3.75 in 2025. This took treasury yields sharply lower.

    Ajit Mishra, SVP, Technical Research, Religare Broking, said indications favour further consolidation in the index, but the bias would remain positive. “Participants should maintain their focus on stock selection and overnight risk management. We feel the performance of the US markets would play a critical role in setting the next leg of the directional move so keep a close eye on them for cues,” he added.

    Nitin Rao, CEO, InCred Wealth, said: While the Sensex reaching 70,000 is a significant milestone, it’s important to remember that investing is a long-term journey. “Current valuations are reasonable, supported by strong economic fundamentals and a positive market sentiment. This suggests that markets are likely to continue trending upward alongside economic growth,” he said.

    Stock Market Live Updates: FOMC Review: Doves leap to a happy year-end

    Madhavi Arora, Emkay Global Financial 

    The market has been looking for a dovish pivot from the Fed, and yesterday it got that. The FOMC statement eased back the language on further hikes, the dots now show three cuts next year, and the post-meeting statement now acknowledges inflation has eased. Chair Powell’s comments at the presser supported this dovish turn, stressing progress on inflation and labor market balance. While he maintained that the Committee is not yet convinced it is done, he conceded that the conversation will soon transition to discussing less restrictive policy. When asked in the presser, Powell did not indicate concern with easing financial conditions or sticky services inflation.

    ■ The 50bps downward revision in 2024 dot plot vs Sep’23 was led by revised economic projections, which indicate a large majority of the Committee is comfortable with multiple cuts next year even though growth is expected to be only modestly below trend. The 2025 median dot also took out a hike.

    ■ Inflation risks are still seen as skewed to the upside, though by the lowest since early ’21. Core PCE inflation for this year was revised down 0.5pp to 3.2% and for next year down 0.2pp to 2.4%. The GDP projections were upgraded for this year, though expected to moderate to 1.4% next year. That said, when seen in the light of what was expected last December, the actual and Fed’s expected outcome for end-2023 is remarkable – a higher-than- expected GDP, and lower unemployment and yet lower-than-initially-projected core inflation (see table 1).

    ■ Powell ensured to express his satisfaction with the “progress” on the immaculate disinflation – the word made repeated mentions, though he mentioned that it was too soon to declare victory. More dovishly, in his presser he acknowledged that the FOMC is already talking about “dialing back the amount of policy restraint in place.”

    ■ Consequent to the dovish outturn, USTs staged an enormous bull-steepening, with 2Y USTs rallying by 30bps - the largest since March, while the 10Y also fell by 18bps to close just above 4%. Deeper rate cut pricing also drove USD weaker.

    ■ Market pricing for near-term cuts has moved up materially post FOMC, with markets frontloading rate cuts into early 2024. We do not necessarily agree with the current aggressive pricing. However, if “totality” of data continues to cool and support their narrative, we think the Fed could fairly soon start laying the groundwork for normalization to begin early 2H24.

    Stock Market Live Updates: Pre-market comment by Deven Mehata of Choice Broking

    The BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty are projected to open higher on December 14, tracking rises of more than 1% in the GIFT Nifty. The GIFT Nifty rose more over 200 points in the morning following a US Fed commentary that anticipated rate cut in 2024, supported by lowering inflation.

    Nifty can find support at 20,900 after a gap up opening, followed by 20,850 and 20,800. On the higher side, 21,020 can be an immediate resistance, followed by 21,100 and 21,150.

    The charts of Bank Nifty indicate that it may get support at 47,000, followed by 46,900 and 46,800. If the index advances, 47,320 would be the initial key resistance level to watch out for, followed by 47,500 and 47,800.

    Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) net bought shares worth Rs 4,711 crore, while domestic institutional investors (DIIs) offloaded Rs 958 crore worth of stocks on December 13, provisional data from the National Stock Exchange (NSE) showed.

    The Fed’s remark yesterday indicated that rates will be decreased in 2024. This upbeat speech pushed the US market higher, with the Dow up over 500 points and the S&P 500 up 1.21 percent. This global positive cue, combined with robust FII purchasing in the Indian market, will drive the Nifty to new highs, and we urge traders and investors to maintain their long positions with a trailing stop loss of 20850.

    Commodities Market Live Updates: Silver prices today: Silver up at $23.85

    Silver prices advanced as the dollar index dropped below 103, reaching its lowest point in over a week. This movement followed the Federal Reserve’s decision to keep interest rates unchanged, in line with expectations, and the signaling of a potential 75 basis points (bps) of rate cuts for the next year—exceeding initial investor expectations. Bets for an interest rate cut in March escalated to 62%. While Chair Powell stated that further interest rate hikes are unlikely, participants were hesitant to entirely rule out the possibility of future increases, maintaining a cautious outlook. The dynamic interplay between the Fed’s decisions and market expectations continues to influence silver prices.

    Investors now closely watch the decisions of the European Central Bank (ECB) and Bank of England (BoE).

    The ECB is anticipated to lower its growth and inflation forecasts, while the BoE is expected to maintain a hawkish stance by keeping interest rates unchanged at 5.25%.

    Stock Market Live Updates: Stock Recommendations: Emkay Global: Petronet LNG

    PLNG’s Rs207bn petchem foray is difficult to quantify in terms of value add, but we do not foresee a washout and believe the stock is investible, going by its valuations and balance sheet. Sector outlook too is stable, with LNG prices under control. Renewal of the QatarGas deal (likely within 1-3 months) is a key event, as a 15-20-year extension would give long-term earnings visibility on core business, and factors like annual escalation in regas charge continuing are likely to be a significant trigger. In our SA model, we assume avg. core capex of Rs15bnpa and equity investment of Rs52bn in petchem, with nil contribution from the latter and Gopalpur; but even assuming full petchem capex in SA and Rs60bn from a land-based unit in Gopalpur, debt/equity would stay under 1x and even 70% DPR be maintainable. We cut TP by ~8% to Rs245; retain BUY.

    Getting ready for India? GMR, getting India ready’ – investors from 2007 will remember this famous advertising slogan, a time when GMR Airports Infrastructure (formerly GMR Infrastructure) was a poster child of that bull market. While the company has come to the spotlight after a long lull, following GQG Partners buying a stake in the company last week, back then, the company was hardly out of the spotlight.

    Stock Market Live Updates: Early-stage delinquencies rising in affordable, low-ticket home loans

    Affordable and low-ticket housing loans are showing signs of an increase in early-stage delinquencies, given that low-income borrowers’ repayment capability has been impacted due to weaker rural growth and a fall in households’ savings.

    “There was a payment shock due to the rising interest rate cycle and multiple increases in interest rates, because of which some affordable segment players are now operating at upwards of 13–14 per cent. There has also been a drop in the savings rate compounded by the noise on small-ticket unsecured loan exposure. All of this has reduced the capacity and capability of servicing debt for the below ₹30 lakh loan segment,” said Kanika Singh, Chief Risk Officer, India Mortgage Guarantee Corporation (IMGC).

    Stock Market Live Updates: Asian markets rally on Fed’s dovish stance, Japan bucks trend

    Asian markets lift off on Thursday barring Japanese stocks, fuelled by the dovish tilt from the Federal Reserve’s final policy meeting of the year which lifted Wall Street - the Dow surged to a fresh all-time high - and slammed Treasury yields and the dollar. 

    Japanese indicies lead by Nikkei 225 fell 0.53% or 175.51 points to 32,750.84 while the broader TOPIX dropped 1.03% or 24.22 points to 2330.70. South Korea’s KOSPI surged 1.51% or 37.92 points to 2,548.58 while Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 surged 1.57% or 113.60 points to trade at 7,371.40.

    The Federal Reserve maintained the current interest rates of at 5.25% to 5.50% unchanged for the third consecutive meeting, aligning with widespread predictions.

    Seventeen out of nineteen Federal Reserve officials forecast a lower policy rate by the conclusion of 2024 compared to the present, with the median projection indicating a decrease of three-quarters of a percentage point from the existing 5.25%-5.50%.

    Fed Chair Jerome Powell indicated that the central bank probably completed its series of interest rate hikes but didn’t dismiss the possibility of further action if necessary.

    Stock Market Live Updates: Dow ends at record high as Fed says it sees lower borrowing costs in 2024

    The Dow Jones industrial average hit its first record closing high since January 2022 and the S&P 500 and Nasdaq ended sharply higher on Wednesday after the Federal Reserve signalled that its interest rate-hiking policy of the last two years is at an end and that it sees lower borrowing costs in 2024.

    In its policy statement, the Fed also left interest rates steady, as expected, and a near-unanimous 17 of 19 Fed officials projected that the policy rate will be lower by the end of 2024.

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 512.3 points, or 1.4%, to 37,090.24, the S&P 500 gained 63.39 points, or 1.37%, at 4,707.09 and the Nasdaq Composite added 200.57 points, or 1.38%, at 14,733.96. - Reuters
