F&O expiry: Nifty ends at 10,589, PSU banks fall; rupee hits record low

MARKET COMMENT Jayant Manglik, President, Religare Broking  Nifty remained under pressure and lost over half a percent on the F&O expiry day. Participants were already in the cautious mood from the beginning and weak global cues combined with the news of rupee trading at new record low against the US dollar further worsened the sentiment. Almost all the sectoral indices traded in line with the benchmark and closed lower.   Continuous global pressure and deteriorating macroeconomic condition on local front are responsible for the recent correction. And, we may see further pressure in the days to come. However, oversold positions may result in some rebound in between. Traders should limit leveraged trades and wait for clarity

COMMODITY WATCH Crude oil We have seen dramatic rise in the crude oil prices in the last couple of months due to geo-political concern. There are supply issues from Venezuela, Libya and Canada. US has asked countries to cut imports of Iranian oil from November. So the crude oil prices are moving higher in the international market. On the other hand, the rupee has depreciated to all time low levels. As a result, crude oil prices touched Rs 5000 on the MCX yesterday. The rupee is expected to depreciate in coming sessions due to steady capital outflows and worsening macroeconomic conditions. Hence, we expect that crude oil prices might trade in a range of Rs 4800 to Rs 5200 on the MCX in coming sessions (Source: Anand Rathi Commodities)

Where is the rupee headed? The Indian rupee is set to weaken beyond 71 per dollar by June next year as the country’s current-account deficit widens on rising oil prices, said Taimur Baig, chief economist at DBS Group Holdings Ltd.   Rising US interest rates, a stronger dollar and fears of a trade war will spur flows into traditional safe-haven liquid currencies, Baig said in an interview. External funding pressures due to slowing capital flows will also keep the rupee under pressure, he added. READ MORE

Benchmark Brent was unchanged at $77.62 a barrel. READ MORE

COMMENT Nitasha Shankar, Sr. Vice President and Head of Research at YES Securities on rupee The sectors that are looking good due to the fall in the rupee are of course the export oriented ones including IT and Pharma. However we believe this could mean further weakness for the oil marketing companies which have already been languishing under the pressure of higher crude prices
