Euro hits 20-year low on Russian gas halt

The euro fell below 99 cents for the first time in nearly two decades, while sterling was on the ropes on Monday as Russia’s halt on gas supply down its main pipeline to Europe sparked concerns over energy prices and growth.

Ashika Stock Broking view: Avoid trading aggressively amid global nervousness.

Tirthankar Das, technical & derivative analyst, retail, Ashika Stock Broking: On the technical front, Nifty formed a sideways inside day formation following the long Bullish candle registered on Aug 30, also there are evidence of reversal pattern in weekly time frame hence in coming sessions, key thing to watch will be a faster retracement above August highs of 18000 that will signal end of the ongoing corrective phase. Else, prolonged consolidation in 17200-17800 range is expected to continue. On the oscillator front, the 14-period RSI has witnessed a sell crossover and presently trading below the 60-level mark. Thus, one need to avoid trading aggressively amid global nervousness. Considering the present situation, a bare minimum correction of 38.6% of the entire rally from 15,183 to 17,992 comes around 16900 followed by 50% correction at 16600. On the upside present setup indicates that Nifty can move towards 17,992 followed by 18,114 in the coming days with immediate support stands at 17,350 and Index need to sustain above the said level with some authority for the bulls to strengthen their stance. Hence during the day intraday decline towards 17430-17470 can be used for creating long position for the target of 17750.

Angel One views on Nifty: Any decline in the forthcoming week should ideally be utilized as a buying opportunity

Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel One Ltd: It was certainly not an easy-going week for market participants. Week on week, we may not see any notable change, but it certainly does not portray the real picture of what market has undergone, especially in the first half of the week. From a technical standpoint, the initial move towards 17166 was a part of ‘Price-wise correction’ which completed its 50% retracement of the previous up move from 16438 to 17992. Now, what we witnessed in the last couple of days can be interpreted as a ‘Time-wise correction’ which is also an essential part of market behavior. Hence, 17200 – 17000 has now become a sacrosanct zone and any decline in the forthcoming week should ideally be utilized as a buying opportunity. Before this, 17400 is also to be seen as immediate support.

On the higher side, 17700 – 17800 is to be treated as a sturdy wall. The moment we surpass this (which is likely), we may see the next leg of the rally getting unfolded to not only challenge the 18000 mark but it may even go beyond it in coming weeks. Hence, traders are advised to remain sanguine and focus on stock specific actions till the time key indices continue with their consolidation mode.

Asia shares ease, euro slugged by energy crisis

Asian shares slipped on Monday while the euro took a fresh spill after Russia shut a major gas pipeline to Europe, leading some governments there to announce emergency measures to ease the pain of soaring energy prices.

The euro was down 0.4% at $0.9908 and looking likely to test its recent 20-year low of $0.99005 as markets priced in more risk of a European recession.

Germany announced plans to spend 65 billion euros ($64.7 billion) on shielding customers and businesses from rising costs, while Finland and Sweden offered liquidity guarantees to keep power companies open.

Oil prices jumped along with the whole energy complex as a holiday in U.S. markets made for thin trading conditions. News of more coronavirus lockdowns in China only added to the jittery mood. (Reuters)

Q1 GDP growth below expectation, cause for concern: Subbarao

India’s GDP growth of 13.5 per cent in the April-June quarter of 2022-23 has turned out be a cause for ‘disappointment and concern’, as there was expectation of a bigger bounce back from the first quarter of last year when economic activity was crippled by the Delta wave of COVID-19, former RBI governor D Subbarao said on Sunday.

Subbarao added that risk factors for the country’s growth outlook in the short term include high commodity prices, possibility of a global recession, monetary tightening by the RBI and an uneven monsoon that could threaten crop output, especially of rice.

“The economy clocked growth of 13.5 per cent in the first quarter (April-June) of this fiscal year which would have been cause for celebration in any other circumstance.

“In the event, it’s turned out be a cause for disappointment and even concern,” he told PTI in an interview. (PTI)

Former Tata Sons chair Cyrus Mistry dies in road accident

Cyrus Mistry, the 54-year-old former chairman of Indian conglomerate Tata Sons, died in a road accident near financial capital Mumbai on Sunday, Indian police said.

Mistry was ousted as chairman of Tata Sons, the holding company of the $300-billion salt-to-software Tata conglomerate, in a boardroom coup in 2016, sparking a long-drawn-out legal tussle on which India’s top court eventually ruled in Tata Group’s favour.

The accident took place in Palghar, located about 100 kilometres (62 miles) north of Mumbai, on Sunday afternoon. Mistry was travelling to Mumbai from Gujarat with three others, B. Patil, the top police official in Palghar district, said.

A senior Mumbai police official said the car in which Mistry was travelling had rammed into a divider, and that he had died at the accident site. (Reuters)

Wall Street stocks fall on Friday again as hiring slows; economy added 315,000 jobs in August

Wall Street stocks ended the week with losses Friday as an early-session rally fizzled following government data indicating employers slowed the pace of hiring in August.

Data showed the US economy added 315,000 jobs last month, which was in line with what economists were expecting, but lower than the 526,000 posted in July.

Stocks initially rose on the report as markets bet the moderating employment situation would ease pressure on the Federal Reserve to hike interest rates.

But markets reversed course midday after Russia’s move to halt natural gas deliveries to Germany sharpened worries over a European recession.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average ended 1.1% lower at 31,318.44.

The broad-based S&P 500 fell 1.1% to 3,924.26, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index shed 1.3 percent to 11,630.86. (AFP)
