Market Analysis: Stocks rise, USD weakened after US Congress approves stimulus package

Reader's Pick

We witnessed an emphatic recovery in global equities in the past couple of days. The US parliament approved a USD 2tn stimulus package which would put money directly into the hands of citizens. The Dow has recovered 15% from recent lows and the US Dollar has weakened across the board.

The Nifty opened on a cautious note, reacting to the announcement of a 21 day nationwide lockdown but caught up with global indices, ending 6% higher yesterday.

India would need to follow the US template to ensure that the economy tides over this period. The government needs to announce further stimulus measures to keep MSMEs alive and the RBI needs to ensure that the banking system remains flush with liquidity.

The Philippine central bank has cut the reserve requirement for banks, the Reserve Bank of Australia has purchased state government bonds.

SGX is indicating a 50pt cut for Nifty on open. The rupee is likely to open around 76.00. Likely range 75.80-76.30.

US jobless claims are due today. They are expected to surge sharply to 1 million from 281k last week. President Trump wants to reopen the US economy by 12th April which many experts believe would not be a great idea.

There are dislocations between the OTC and futures markets that one can look to capitalize on. April futures were 30p above onshore on Tuesday.

Eur 1.0912, Gbp 1.1848, Aud 0.5911, Jpy 110.61, Cnh 7.1250, WTI 24.14, US 10y 0.80%, US 2y 0.30%, India 10y 6.31%, Dow +495pts, Dow futures +5pts, DXY 100.74.
