Sensex slips 162 points, Nifty below 10,500 on fiscal deficit concerns

MARKET COMMENT: Jayant Manglik, President, Religare Broking Indian market saw another lackluster trading session amid volatility, taking cues from global markets and dismal PMI data. The Nifty index ended down 0.6% led by selling in Banking, Metal and Capital Goods stocks. The broader market indices outperformed the frontline index. On global front, Asian and Europeans markets faltered and bonds were sold off as risk appetite soured after comments from new Federal Reserve Chair revived fears about faster rate rises in the US.   We expect the Indian equities to consolidate in the coming sessions without any major triggers in the near term. Also global developments could lead to market volatility in the near term. However, any further correction at this juncture should be considered as a healthy buying opportunity for investors in quality companies with strong financials and bright outlook. Meanwhile traders should remain cautious and keep their positions hedged, as volatility is likely to remain high in the coming sessions

PNB scam throws long shadow on diamond industry in Surat, deals drop 10%   The Nirav Modi-Mehul Choksi scam has thrown a long shadow on the diamond polishing and trading industry, with its hub in Surat, Gujarat. Deals are down 8-10 per cent since the incident came to the fore on February 14. “Diamantaires do not want to take chances. Also, now, banks are tight-fisted about disbursing working capital, especially to diamantaires. This has slowed business by at least 10 per cent,” said Kirti Shah, a Surat-based diamond polisher and trader. READ MORE
