17 June 2021: Pre Market Report. Is it the end of bull run?

Yet another day in the market and there has been a major change in the markets as we had a good sleep last night.

Yesterday Nifty opened with a gap down and went on to close at 15,767, down 101 points or 0.64 percent as discussed in the post-market report yesterday. Click here to read it, if you have not read it yet.

As I had informed yesterday, there was the FED monetary policy meeting in the US (Last night, Indian time) and U.S. Federal Reserve stunned investors by signaling it might raise interest rates at a much faster pace than assumed, sending yields and the dollar sharply higher. The dollar had its strongest single-day gain in 15 months as 10-year US Treasury yields jumped by the most since early March. With all this action happening in the US, Asian markets like Japan and Singapore have also fallen since morning.

The Indian stock market is expected to open in the red as trends on SGX Nifty indicate a negative opening for the index in India with a 97 points loss at around 15680-15700.

With this effect, we might see profit booking in the Indian market today, and today being the weekly expiry, expect the market to be highly volatile today. Also, Steel prices fell yesterday as the Chinese market decided to use its reserve of steel instead of importing from other countries due to rising steel prices.

Results to be announced today:

Power Grid Corporation, Natco Pharma, Jammu & Kashmir Bank, DB Corp, Basant Agro Tech, Gyscoal Alloys, Global Vectra Helicorp, HealthCare Global Enterprises, Hindustan Media Ventures, IFB Agro Industries, Indostar Capital Finance, Khadim India, Kingfa Science, Nava Bharat Ventures, Novartis India, Power Mech Projects, Royal Orchid Hotels, Siel Financial Services, and Tube Investments of India.
