Market Outlook: US markets closed lower by 1% after hawkish comments from few FED officials who reinforced the need to raise rate hikes to tackle the inflation. However, futures were trading flat ahead of Non-Farm Payrolls data tonight. Following the comments, bond yields have surged and dollar index back above 112 level. Asian markets have started on a flat to negative note, with SGX Nifty is indicating a slightly weak opening. USDINR hits record high on account of strong dollar and rising oil prices. Yesterday, nifty couldn’t able to hold the initial gains and corrected from day high amid global weakness. We expect market may trade in range bound today however stock specific action will continue.
