US Markets – next 2 sessions could be ‘Make or Break’; Indian investors should watch out for THESE GLOBAL TRIGGERS
Market Guru says that considering two facts – one that the US markets traded in a range on Tuesday and the other to be the inflation number – the futures markets are expected to remain cautions and subdued on Wednesday. The stock markets will be keeping an eye on the statement of Fed Chairman, and US earnings results, he adds
The US inflation data is higher than expected and the Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell is expected to speak on this issue. Amid this what are the global cues and how should the Indian investors look at it? Zee Business Managing Editor Anil Singhvi gives his take on the issue.
The Market Guru said that considering two facts – one that the US markets traded in a range on Tuesday and the other to be the inflation number – the futures markets are expected to remain cautions and subdued. The Markets will be keeping an eye on the statement of Fed Chairman, he added.

The data on unemployment released last time was quite strong indicating that the numbers fell sharply and there was higher employment. However, this time we have seen that inflation has gone up sharply. If both the data are put together, then a case for higher interest rates strengthens, Singhvi said.
The rise in US bond yields on Tuesday also had to do with the money market operations, he said. The bond yields rose from 1.35 per cent to 1.4 per cent. This is indicative of lesser demand for bonds. If the demand is low it can be said that fixed income investors and debt investors are not too keen on buying these bonds.
Amid high inflation and growing job numbers, there are indications that the economy is coming back on track. This may further the cause of increasing interest rates, the Manging Editor said.
This will be counterproductive to equity markets. The US markets will be keeping an eye on the developments over the next two days and may even decide the course of the movement now, he added.
They are already trading near their life highs and a 50-100-point correction is not that significant issue. The US markets are still trading strongly, SInghvi further said.
The cues are for a slight weakness, he further said. Dow Futures were trading with some weakness and were trading down by 7 points at 34769 on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Nasdaq Futures were trading up by almost 7 points at 14,871.75.
