Good Morning Everyone, If you are not aware, the image above is the headquarters of Amazon in the US and we will talk about it in a while.
Today we are not only on the last trading day of the week but also for the month. Let us look at how the markets have fared across the globe yesterday.
US market rebounded after Asian markets yesterday after the Federal Reserve said that it is in no hurry to raise the interest rates & The number of Americans collecting unemployment benefits slid last week, another sign that the job market continues to recover rapidly from the coronavirus recession. Jobless claims dropped by 24,000 to 400,000 last week, the Labor Department reported Thursday.
All these positive news boosted the Dow Jones Industrial Average to a record high of 35,171.52 points before closing up 0.4%. The S&P 500 also jumped to an all-time high of 4,429.97 points before finishing 0.4% higher, while the Nasdaq Composite added 0.3%.
But after the US markets closed yesterday, Amazon came with its results & it was below the analyst's expectation, after which we could see some profit booking in the Asian market as the US market will react to the news only today evening.
Japan’s Nikkei 225 dipped 1.2% in early trade, while the Topix lost 0.81%
Trends on the SGX nifty indicate a negative open after the Asian markets witnessed profit booking in early trades today and may open at around 15750. However, one good news in India is that Chief Economic Advisor K V Subramanian yesterday said, Headline inflation will come down under the 6 percent mark in July itself but will stay at an elevated level of over 5 percent for some time. Such an outcome will get the price rise back into the upper end of the target band given to RBI, he said, adding that consumer price inflation had breached the mark for three consecutive quarters last fiscal because of supply-side issues like challenges in the movement of goods.
"With reasonable probability, I expect this month the (inflation) print to come less than 6 percent," Subramanian told a conference organised by industry lobby FICCI.
And the real estate sector which has been stressed for quite some time now has started showing signs of improvement since the first quarter of the current fiscal and its contribution to the country's GDP is expected to reach 10 percent by 2025 from the current 7 percent, a top government official said on Thursday.
Union Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry Secretary Durga Shanker Mishra also said that the National Urban Digital Mission has taken up steps to connect nearly 2,535 cities across India to improve connectivity.
The real estate sector's contribution to the GDP is 7 percent now and it is expected to reach 10 percent by 2025. The sector in India is set to be valued at USD 1 trillion in the next few years as the country aims at USD 5 trillion economies, he said at an interactive session with the Bharat Chamber of Commerce.
