As par early SGX indication, Nifty Fut (June) may open around 9690, almost flat following subdued global cues and hopes of a dovish RBI tomorrow along with GST optimism. Overnight US market closed in slight negative (-0.10%) as market turned cautious ahead of ECB meet, Comey’s testimony and UK election amid mixed US economic data (ISM Non-Mfg PMI came slightly tepid but employment portion was upbeat). There was also some talk that some influential opposition DNC members are ready to co-operate Trump for the health care & infra spending plan and tax reforms; if there is no terrible outcome from Comey’s testimony this week, one can expect for some progress of the US tax reform plan in July-Sep’17.
As of now Fed is scheduled to hike in June; but the big question may be its future stance (hawkish/dovish) and considering the overall soft US economic data, Sep hike may be in doubt now. Although, US stock market is rallying on optimism of a reflation trade (US infra/fiscal spending), bond yields are not yet convinced and are diverging quite q lot.
In the morning Asian session today, some hawkish comments by Japan’s FM about reducing debt/GDP ratio has strengthened the JPY and thus Japan is trading lower. China & HSI is trading higher, after PBOC has done an unexpected big MLF operation.
Back to home, Indian market may continue its “feel good rally” to some extent although valuations are now quite stretched amid mixed Q4 earnings; market may be looking for a dovish RBI tomorrow, if not an unexpected rate cut. Although, there is immense GST optimism, especially for the sectors on which GST rates are apparently favourable, there are also some serious concerns of a GST disruption, even for a short term as the overall rules, regulations and compliances are quite complex, confusing and also challenging. Govt may also now giving its full focus on the hassle free GST roll out and may look into the NPA resolution & PSBS revival after GST episode next QTR.
