GM results out, US markets fall from record high, will Nifty sustain ?

Good Morning Everyone,


Yesterday, the Indian market closed at its all-time high again but then formed a weak candle on the daily chart which shows that the strength in the bull has come down. Let's look at how the global markets performed yesterday.


Global Markets:


US markets fell from their record highs yesterday after Genera Motors came up with their results which were much below expectation and the stocks fell to their low since March 2021. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 323.73 points, or 0.92%, to 34,792.67, the S&P 500 lost 20.49 points, or 0.46%, to 4,402.66 and the Nasdaq Composite added 19.24 points, or 0.13%, to 14,780.53.

A measure of US services industry activity jumped to a record high in July, boosted by the shift in spending to services from goods, but businesses continued to face rising prices because of supply chain constraints.

The Institute for Supply Management said on Wednesday its non-manufacturing activity index raced to 64.1 last month, the highest reading in the series’ history, from 60.1 in June.


Shares in Asia-Pacific were mixed in Thursday morning trade, following declines overnight on Wall Street. Japan’s Nikkei 225 gained 0.31% in morning trade while the Topix index advanced 0.25%. South Korea’s Kospi stood little changed.


Indian Market:


SBI reported a 55.25 percent year-on-year (YoY) jump in the June quarter net profit at Rs 6,504 crore, up from Rs 4,189.34 crore in the same quarter of the previous year. The profit was higher than Street’s expectations. & we could see SBI share price hitting its all-time high.


Trends on the SGX Nifty indicate a flat start with maybe a small gap up of about 10 points today.

FIIs have been buying for the last 2 days, but today needs to be watched as, Thursday is our weekly expiry and first expiry of the month, which could lead to volatility in the market. So let's lookout for more opportunities to enter the right stocks.
