BOR: Market Outlook: Indian markets will have negative opening today on account of weak global cues.

Market Outlook: Indian markets will have negative opening today on account of weak global cues. Nifty has supports at 4480-4500 and resistances are at 4700-4740. Market may remain weak for a few trading session. Global cues are directing market so one has to keep eye on the events to watch today in the peers counter. In commodities, crude prices fell nearly 3% to around USD 68, the lowest settlement since August 17 as economic concerns sent investors into safer havens, outweighing positive US manufacturing and home sales data. However, it has inched up a bit higher.

Global Events to Watch:

  • US- Challenger Job-Cut Report
  • US- ADP Employment Report
  • US- Productivity and Costs data
  • US Factory Orders
  • US- EIA Petroleum Status Report
  • US- MBA Purchase Applications

On the global counter: Dow ends 2% down, S&P below 1K; financials drag & Asia trading lower; Nikkei down 2.6%, Hang Seng down 1.5%. The US markets started the month of September with a sharp selloff on the back of worries about more bank failures and the fact that the market may have gotten ahead of the recovery. Bank stocks were sharply lower on the back of a buzz in the markets that another bank default may be coming. The CBOE volatility index jumped 12% to 29.15, its highest level since early July. Investors seemed to shrug off some encouraging report on the manufacturing front. The ISM manufacturing index rose to 52.9 in August from 48.9 in July. This was better than the 50.5 that was expected, it was also first time the reading topped 50 since January 2008.
