As par early SGX indication, Nifty Fut (July) may open around 9935, almost 35 points gap-up, tracking mixed global/Asian cues after China strengthen its Yuan band against USD and a blockbuster China GDP data this morning, which came as 6.9% for Q2CY17 against estimate of 6.8% (prior: 6.9%). Also, China IIP & Retail sales came upbeat; although Chinese official economic data always lacks some credibility, nevertheless, today’s data may be indicating steady & improving momentum of the economy.
But, PBOC today also strengthen the Yuan band from 6.78 to 6.75 following tepid US economic data on Friday (CPI & Retail sales) and also after today’s upbeat China economic data, PBOC may maintain its prudent neutral monetary policy to deleverage the China economy in the foreseeable future. Thus, China market (SSE) may be under some pressure today and that may be dragging the Asian market sentiment to some extent; Japan is closed today.
Overnight US market (DJ-30) was closed at another record breaking levels (+0.39%) celebrating a dovish Fed after subdued US economic data, which may force Yellen to stay on the side line till Dec’17; but Fed may start its QE tapering from Sep’17. On Friday, mixed results from the banks & poor NIM & guidance dragged the US market to some extent.
Back to home, although Indian market is at striking distance to conquer the 10k Nifty Mt’ Everest on the back of positive global cues, hopes of an Aug cut by RBI, forced short covering by P-notes FNO, good monsoon, incremental reforms by the Govt, ultimately earnings need to catch up with the stretched valuations, which is being elusive for the last few years despite various green shoots narratives.
