MARKET COMMENT | Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services

Indian benchmark indices showcased steady gains throughout the course of the trading day, before finally ending up by more than 2 per cent; almost entirely recouping the losses in yesterday’s trade. This relief rally was in spite of mostly negative global cues and seemed to be based on the hope of more stimulus measures by the government. On a weekly basis, the recovery today enabled the benchmark indices to limit to around 3.8 per cent loss for the week. FPIs have net sold close to Rs 2,000 crore so far this month, which indicated the uncertain trend in the markets, after a huge month of inflows in August.
In spite of the rally seen today, the market is expected to remain volatile and directionless in the absence of solid triggers. Global cues will continue to be in focus as a resurgence in virus cases around the world, leads to more restrictions and more pressure on economic recovery. Traders are advised limiting overnight positions and Investors are advised to only accumulate quality stocks for the time being.

Loan moratorium case: Adverse SC verdict could heavily affect banks in Q2

News reports suggest that the Mehrishi Committee has recommended the government to bear the brunt of this liability and a relief be provided to the most affected segment of borrowers. While this does bode well for banks, going by precedence, analysts say they would be surprised if the government offers any support. “As per our observation, unless it is a government announced scheme like a farm waiver, it is unlikely that such costs are borne by the government,” says an analyst with a foreign brokerage. Some are also of the view that if the government extends any relief it could turn counter-productive at this juncture. “There could be an uproar that this money could have been used for recapitalising government-owned banks or serving the public directly; why help the banks instead,” head of research at domestic brokerage points out.

Q&A | Financial sector is in the middle of a perfect storm: Pankaj Murarka

Globally, we are witnessing a pullback in risk assets across the board after a ferocious rally in the last six months. After the sharp rally, equity markets are ahead of the real economy and we are witnessing profit-taking. It is a healthy correction in the bull-market and investors with a long-term view should use this pullback as an opportunity to invest in equities. As economies unlock and get back to their normalised level of activity, equities should do well over the next two-three years. READ MORE
