Note: On Wednesday India’s Nifty soared after a dovish hike by RBI. Although the hike was not expected, it came amid the continuation of RBI’s so-called “neutral” stance with higher projections of inflation, while GDP forecast was basically unchanged. The market took the RBI hike as “one & off” in H1FY19 unless core inflation and oil further surge; i.e. going forward, RBI may be data dependent.
As India’s central bank (RBI) raised its benchmark interest rate for the first time since 2014 and retained its “neutral” policy stance against expectations of “tightening” leading sovereign bonds (GSEC) to slip and the rupee to advance slightly and stocks jumped. But banks have already increased their base lending rate amid soaring bond yields and thus the higher borrowing costs may continue to haunt the Indian market after Wednesday’s short covering rally. Going ahead, RBI may hike another 0.25% in H2FY19 or Dec’18, if Fed goes for the 3rd hike and India’s core inflation continues to hover around 6%.
