While the US market continues to be strong, demand environment in EU remain stable. Management indicated of higher marketing spends going forward to drive JLR’s order book. Focus is on achieving 10% EBIT margin by FY26 (vs. 8%+ in FY24) through better mix and higher operating leverage. Strong FCF generation is expected to support investments towards electrification at JLR and the company is on track to reduce net debt to <£1bn by FY24 end and turn net cash by FY25. TTMT’s EV portfolio is leading the domestic EV space. CV demand is expected to remain muted in the near-term. However, improving margins for both domestic CV and PV segments augurs well for overall profitability. Domestic business is also on track to turn net debt free. Maintain BUY with Mar’25 SOTP of INR 1,000 (standalone / JLR valued at 10x /2.5x EV/EBIDTA). Slowdown in key global markets remains a monitorable.

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: JM Financial Institutional Securities: SBI 3QFY24 Result Update | Steady at the core, soft at the margin

    Result Update - Sameer Bhise BUY INR 800

    SBIN reported a steady quarter with NII of INR 398bn (+0.8% QoQ, +4.6% YoY) as domestic NIMs declined -9bps QoQ at 3.34%. International NIMs was steady at +2bps QoQ at 2.21%. Higher opex from revision in wage provisions led to a PPoP of INR 203bn (+4.7% QoQ, -19% YoY). Credit costs remained lower at 0.21%, however revision of pension liabilities led to additional provisions worth INR 71bn which resulted in lower PAT of INR 91.6bn (-36% YoY,-36% QoQ). Loan growth was healthy (+5.2% QoQ, +15% YoY) at INR 35.2trln while deposits growth was soft at +1.6% QoQ, 13% YoY at INR 47.6trln. Loan growth was well-rounded across sectors and management maintained its growth guidance of 14-15% going ahead. Asset quality improved sequentially with GNPL of 2.42% (-13bps QoQ) and NNPLs of 0.64% (flat QoQ). PCR for the bank remains strong at 74.2%. Mgmt expects CET1 to reach c.11% by Mar’24 (from current levels of 9.1%) driven by strong profitability in FY24E (currently considering 9MFY24 PAT, CET-1 stands at 10.4%). We believe delivery of growth on guided lines, sustenance of NIMs near current levels and controlled asset quality parameters aiding controlled credit costs should lead to strong profitability going ahead. We build in RoA/ RoE of 0.94%/16% for FY26E. We value the core banking business at 1.2x FY26E P/BV and we arrive at our SoTP-based target price of INR 800. Maintain BUY.

    Stock Market Live Today: Nifty outlook by Anand James of Geojit Financial Services

    Friday’s rejection trades in the face of record peaks should ideally lead to a full reversal aiming at the 21200s again, or a deeper dive to 20800. However, we would like to draw some inspiration from the successful push above the peaks of 23rd and 30th of January, both of which had seen heavy selling. This allows us to pin our hopes on the support clusters around 21720 or 21600 to allow bulls to regroup and avoid a full reversal that Friday has indicated. This would also encourage us to retain our upside objective of 22450-550 for now.

    Commodities Market Live Today: Gold and Silver prices drop as dollar and treasury yields surge on strong U.S. jobs report

    International spot, futures and domestic futures of gold and silver tumbled on Friday after the U.S. Dollar and Treasury Yields rallied on Friday after upbeat jobs report. 

    The US economy added 353K jobs in January 2024, compared to an upwardly revised 333K in December, and way above market forecasts of 180K.

    The unemployment rate in the United States held at 3.7% in January 2024, unchanged from the previous month, while Average hourly earnings on US private nonfarm payrolls rose by 0.6%.

    Markets are now pricing in a 15% chance of a March rate cut, down from a 53% ahead of the jobs data, according to CME’s FedWatch Tool.

    The strong jobs report will make it harder for the FOMC to be confident that the recent improvement in inflation could be sustainable.

    The Dollar also took support after Fed Chair Powell, in an interview repeated that it was likely too soon to have confidence to cut rates in March.

    From an intraday perspective, international gold and silver prices started weaker this early Monday morning in Asian trade as the dollar and Treasury yields jumped after an upbeat U.S. jobs report dashed hopes for early interest rate cuts from the Federal Reserve.

    In the upcoming week, investors will also closely watch for insights from Federal Reserve officials, along with key economic indicators such as ISM Services PMI and trade balance data.

    Internationally, the range for COMEX April is $2,025 to $2,070, while that for COMEX March silver is $22.000 to $23.275.

    Domestically, the range for MCX gold April is 62,000 to 62,700 while that for MCX silver March is 69,800 to 71,500. -- Sriram Iyer of Reliance Securities -- Sriram Iyer of Reliance Securities

    From an intraday perspective, international copper prices have started flat as the Dollar remained elevated this early Monday morning in Asian trade.

    Additionally, concerns about weaker demand with the continued contraction of China’s factory activity in January will keep upside capped.

    With most of the key triggers factored in prices could track the Dollar and data this week. ISM Services PMI and trade balance data are scheduled this week.

    However, with China’s New Year holiday approaching demand and trading with could be muted this week and will keep any upside capped.

    Currency Market Live Today: Indian Rupee gains on upbeat risk appetite post-Budget, faces dollar demand

    The Indian Rupee appreciated against the Dollar on Friday supported by upbeat risk appetite following the presentation of India’s federal budget and a fall in the U.S. bond yields and the Dollar Index in the previous session.

    However, gains were capped as dollar demand from state-run banks likely on behalf of the Reserve Bank of India and importers.

    The Rupee finally settled at 82.9175 against the U.S. dollar, compared to its previous close of 82.9650.

    The domestic unit gained by 0.20% for the week.

    Meanwhile, most Asian peers were stronger this Friday and also aided sentiments.

    From an intraday perspective, the Indian Rupee could start weaker this Monday morning against the Dollar after a robust U.S. jobs report and comments by Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell prompted a plunge in the odds of an interest rate cut in March.

    The NDF market is indicating that the Rupee could open around 83.0000 to 83.0200 against the Dollar compared with 82.9175 in the previous session and the range for the session is between 82.8500 to 83.1000.

    Investors are now pricing in only a 15% probability that the Fed will cut rates at its next meeting in March.

    The Dollar and the Bond Yields rose on Friday and remained elevated this Monday morning and will weigh on sentiments.

    Most EM and Asian peers were weaker this early Monday morning and will weigh on sentiments.

    Amongst other domestic pairs, EURINR, the GBPINR and the JPYINR could start weaker on Monday’s session.

    Moving onto the overseas markets, the U.S. Dollar Index gained against the basket of currencies on Friday after data showed U.S. job growth in January surged well past expectations, while average hourly earnings increased the most since March 2022.

    The Dollar also took support after Fed Chair Powell, in an interview repeated that it was likely too soon to have confidence to cut rates in March.

    The Euro, the Sterling and the Yen tumbled against the Dollar on Friday, tracking the strength of the greenback.

    From an intraday perspective, the U.S. Dollar Index extended gains against its major peers early Monday morning in Asian trade as the US economy’s resilience and hawkish signals from the Federal Reserve further dented sentiment around interest rate cuts.

    ISM non-manufacturing PMI will be the key trigger this Monday.

    The range for the Dollar Index is $103.20 to $104.35.

    The Euro, the Sterling and the Yen started weaker against the greenback early Monday morning.

    Germany trade balance and PMI number for Eurozone and Germany will be the key trigger this Monday.

    The range for the Euro is $1.0700 to $1.0865, while that for the Yen is $146.85 to $149.20 and the Sterling is $1.2570 to $1.2730. -- Sriram Iyer of Reliance Securities

    Stock Market Live Today: V K Vijayakumar of Geojit: Global equities remain positive, US Economy surprises with strong job data

    V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services.

    “The global construct for equity markets continues to be good with the mother market US doing well aided by a surprisingly strong economy. The latest data on job creation in January has again surprised with the addition of 3,53,000 jobs. There are no signs of the US economy tipping into a mild recession any time soon. This means that the Fed rate cuts expected this year are likely to be back-loaded. This has pushed up the 10-year bond yield again above 4% and the dollar index to 104. This might prompt some selling by FIIs. But the market momentum is good supported by strong DII and retail buying.

    Among the recent results Tata Motors and Interglobe Aviation stand out and these stocks have more room to go up. RIL also is exhibiting strength.”

    Stock Market Live Today: Opening Bell: Sensex and Nifty start week with a flat opening amid global cautiousness

    Indian benchmark indices, namely Sensex and Nifty, kicked off the week with a flat opening on Monday. In the early trading session, the 30-share BSE Sensex saw a drop of 25.74 points, reaching 72,059.89, while the NSE Nifty gained 5.25 points, reaching 21,859.05. The previous session witnessed the Nifty 50 achieving a record high, but the stronger-than-expected U.S. jobs data reduced hopes of an early Federal Reserve rate cut, impacting Asian markets. 

    Pravesh Gour from Swastika Investmart underscores Nifty’s record high at 22,126, emphasizing the necessity to sustain this level for continual upward momentum, setting targets at 22,350 and 22,500. Bank Nifty is facing resistance at 47,000 after a bounceback from the 200-DMA. Immediate demand zones are noted at 45,700–45,400, with support at 45,000. FII’s long exposure in index futures remains at 33%, and the put-call ratio stands at 0.8.

    According to Himanshu Marfatia of Incred Capital, the Indian stock market is gearing up for an election rally despite a provisional budget lacking growth focus. Optimism prevails due to an authoritative tone, forward-looking commitments, and growing confidence in the government’s electoral prospects. The Interim Budget showcases a drastic fiscal deficit drop, development priorities, and a vision for 2047. While a pre-election rally continues, risks include potential volatility and FIIs’ sell-off. The market cautiously balances positive signals with challenges influenced by Q3 results, premium valuations, bond yield impacts, and fiscal deficit concerns.

    Nifty 50 hit an all-time high for the fifth time in 2024 on Friday, buoyed by gains in Reliance and IT stocks, and positive sentiment from the government’s fiscal prudence in the budget. Foreign portfolio investors purchased a net Rs 70.69 crore worth of shares on Friday, while domestic institutional investors added stocks worth Rs 2,463 crore, according to exchange data.

    Stock Market Live Today: RBI MPC meeting, Q3 earnings and Marco-economic will drive the market next week

    -- Pravesh Gour, Senior Technical Analyst at Swastika Investmart Ltd.

    The government sticking to its fiscal glide path boosts sentiment; the market hits a record high. The Nifty reaches an intra-day high of 22,127, while the Midcap Index also sets a new record. Sensex and Nifty are close in the green, but off highs, Nifty gives up 22,000.

    Global markets are currently in a fabulous mood, with the Nasdaq up 2% and the Dow Jones up 1.22% in the month of January 2024. US 10-year bond yields and the dollar index are also cooling off, which gives strength to the market. These factors will be closely monitored, as they have the potential to influence market sentiment. The crude oil prices fell as part of negotiations between Israel and Hamas, which could be an important step towards ending the conflict. On the other hand, despite a production cut by OPEC, prices of crude oil are under pressure due to China’s fear of demand.

    Additionally, data like US non-farm payroll data and the unemployment rate for January will be announced on February 2, 2024. The US ISM services PMI for January will be declared on February 5, 2024. These factors will be closely monitored, as they have the potential to influence market sentiment.

    On the domestic front, the reserve bank governor-headed six-member MPC meeting is scheduled from February 6th to February 8th, 2024. The RBI will hold its key interest rate steady at 6.50%, as per the report. The Q3 quarterly results season will continue to remain in focus. Apollo Hospital, Bharati Airtel, Britannia, Power Grid, Nestle, Lupin, Grasim, Power Finance, and Tata Power will announce their results this week.

    Market participants will be keeping an eye on the movement of the rupee against the dollar and crude oil prices. Investments by foreign institutional investors (FIIs) and domestic institutional investors (DIIs) will also be monitored.

    The Nifty has recently reached a new all-time high, reaching 22,126. However, for sustained upward momentum, it’s crucial for the index to maintain this level; otherwise, it might revert to a sideways trend. Above the 22126 mark, the next targets will be 22350 and 22500.

    Conversely, on the downside, the range between 21,640 and 21,500 presents an immediate demand zone. 

    Bankifty is facing resistance at the 47000 mark after a meaningful bounceback from the 200-DMA. 45700–45400 is an immediate demand zone, while 45000 is a key support level. It has to cross the 47000 mark for a move towards the 48000 level.

    FII’s long exposure in index futures remains at 33%, accompanied by a put-call ratio of 0.8.

    Stock Market Live Today: Indian markets rally on Budget optimism and green growth initiatives; eyes on Q3 earnings season and global economic data

    -- Arvinder Singh Nanda, Senior Vice President, of Master Capital Services Ltd.

    Benchmark indices snapped two week losing streak by ending the Budget week higher with IT companies and Reliance gaining the most. Market sentiments were boosted after Govt sticking to fiscal glide path. On the sectoral basis, PSU banks gained the most while FMCG and Media fell the most. 

    The Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented the Interim Budget announcing a sharp cut in Fiscal deficit to 5.1% for FY25 and 5.8% from 5.9% for FY24. The govt also decided to keep capex growth steady and grow capex by 11.1% to Rs 11.11trillion for FY25. Budget made no change in direct, indirect taxation. The major focus of the budget was on capex and consolidation theme. The major sectors which will benefit from the budget in the long term are infra, aviation, railways, metros, power, capital goods, agriculture, housing and technology to stay supported by government spends. Govt is also promoting tourism by providing long term interest free loans to promote iconic tourist centres.

    This budget doubles down on its green growth efforts with initiatives aimed at improving the ecosystem for electric vehicles and biomanufacturing. Notably, the push for rooftop solarization will indirectly boost the income as it is estimated to save households Rs 15000-18,000 annually on electricity bills.

    On the domestic front, India can become 3rd largest economy in the world with 5 trillion GDP from current 3.7 trillion in next 3 years and aspire to become 7 trillion economy by 2030.

    The market focus will be on the ongoing Q3FY24 earnings season which is contributing to the movement in stock price, with many companies announcing their results in the coming days such as Ashok Leyland, Bharti Airtel, Sun Pharma, Britannia, Birla Corp, CAMS, Godrej Properties, Lemon Tree, Apollo Tyres, Nestle, Grasim, LIC, Godrej, IRFC and many more.

    Earnings growth and demand is sustained this quarter, with optimism continued for Indian corporates business performance. IT sector companies reported mediocre performance while banks reported better performance than expected. Real estate sector continues to boom while consumer sector struggled for growth for another quarter due to weak rural demand.

    The market will react to the major domestic and global economic data, crude oil inventories, FII/DII investment pattern, movement of rupee against dollar, ongoing earnings season, upcoming elections. Economic numbers will impact the market such as S&P global Services PMI of countries like India, UK, US, crude oil inventories, US trade balance, Initial jobless claims, 10-year Note Auction, China’s Inflation numbers and India’s Interest rate decision and forex reserve numbers are some of the events which should be kept in focus.

    Indian indices, BSE Sensex and Nifty, traded in the green in first half & made fresh all time high at 22126.80 on Friday before settling the week at 21853.80, while, Sensex ended the week at 72085.63. Boosted by rise in global market and gains in index heavyweight RIL.

    In Nifty, For the week, the index gained 2.35 percent and formed a long bullish candlestick pattern with an upper shadow that formed a Double Top formation, which is a bearish reversal pattern. Conversely, a break below the support level at 21,500 may indicate a bearish momentum

    Shifting focus to Bank Nifty, the index faced selling pressure from the higher levels near 46800.For upside 46800 and 47200 can now act as immediate resistance, While, 45500-45200 will act as an immediate support.

    Stock Market Live Today: Nifty reshuffle alert: BPCL´s position at risk

    While it is almost certain that UPL will be dislodged by Shriram Finance in the National Stock Exchange Nifty50 Index, the position of Bharat Petroleum Corporation (BPCL) could also be at risk. Brian Freitas of Periscope Analytics, an insight provider who publishes on Smartkarma, suggests a slim possibility that the staterun fuel retailer could get replaced by Bharat Electronics in the 50share benchmark index.

    Although Jio Financial Services, Zomato, and Avenue Supermarts (DMart) have higher freefloat market capitalisations than Shriram Finance and Bharat Electronics, they are ineligible for index inclusion as they are not part of the derivatives segment. 

    The review period for the March rebalance for Nifty indices concluded on January 31, and the announcement of changes will be made at the end of this month. -- Himanshu Marfatia of Incred Capital

    Stock Market Live Today: Nifty´s potential soars: A 1,000-point rally ahead?

    The benchmark National Stock Exchange Nifty hit a record intraday high of 22,127 on Friday, surpassing its previous intraday peak from January 15. According to technical analysts at ICICIdirect, an over 1,000point rally in the index might be on the horizon.

    The retail brokerage said in a note, “Our composite model, with equal weights on general election year price behaviour, bull market corrections, and bottomup Nifty projection, strongly recommends buying the current decline for a target of 23,400 by June 2024.” It added, “In a general election year, Nifty tends to bottom out in February–March, followed by a minimum 14 per cent rally towards the general election outcome in each of the seven instances over the past three decades.”

    Stock Market Live Today: A look at the day ahead in Asian markets.

    The provided information outlines key factors that will likely influence Asian markets, providing a comprehensive view of the economic landscape and potential challenges in the Asia & Pacific region. Let’s delve deeper into the potential implications:

    1. Impact of U.S. Employment Numbers:

    - Strong U.S. employment numbers are expected to have a positive impact on Asian markets, following Wall Street’s lead. This reflects global interconnectivity and the influence of U.S. economic indicators on international financial markets.

    2. Treasuries and Bond Yields:

    - Heavy selling in Treasuries has led to a ripple effect across Asian debt markets, particularly affecting government bonds in Australia and New Zealand.

    - The rise in yields on Australian and New Zealand bonds suggests a reevaluation of interest rate expectations, possibly due to the robust U.S. jobs report.

    3. Fed Policy Clues:

    - Investors are closely watching for further clues on Fed policy as Chair Jerome Powell appears on CBS’s 60 Minutes. Any insights provided during this interview could impact market expectations and investor sentiment.

    4. Oil Market Focus:

    - Recent U.S. and UK strikes against Houthi targets have heightened focus on oil markets. The Iran-backed Houthis’ vow to respond adds geopolitical risk, potentially impacting oil prices, including West Texas Intermediate.

    5. Key Economic Indicators:

    - Monday’s scheduled economic indicators, including PMI figures from China and Japan, Indonesian GDP, Thai inflation, and Australian trade data, will be crucial for understanding the economic health of the region. These indicators can influence market sentiment and investment decisions.

    6. Tech Earnings and Market Momentum:

    - The S&P 500 and Nasdaq reaching new highs due to strong tech earnings may contribute to positive momentum in Asian markets. Tech sector performance often influences broader market trends.

    7. Concerns over China’s Economy:

    - China’s CSI 300 index’s significant weekly decline, coupled with the IMF’s warning of potential slowing growth and U.S. allegations against Chinese companies, introduces uncertainties and potential challenges for the region.

    8. Dollar Strength and Bond Yields Impact:

    - The rebound of the U.S. dollar and rising U.S. bond yields could have implications for global financial markets, impacting currencies and capital flows in the Asia & Pacific region.

    9. Political and Trade Tensions:

    - Ongoing political and trade tensions, including potential tariff threats from Donald Trump, introduce an element of uncertainty. Investors will monitor developments closely for potential market reactions.

    10. Investor Sentiment and Actions:

    - Despite concerns, positive signs of investor sentiment, such as record inflows into Chinese stocks and increased hedge fund buying, suggest confidence in the market.

    11. Regional Economic Developments:

    - Indonesia’s expected GDP growth and Thailand’s pressure to cut its policy rate amid low inflation highlight the diverse economic situations in the region.

    Investors will closely watch how these factors play out to gauge the overall market direction and potential risks in the Asia & Pacific region. The diverse economic indicators provide a nuanced view of the challenges and opportunities facing different countries in the region
