Markets are expected to open on a cautious note amid weak global cues. The Nifty closed flat after a volatile session with intraday swings of 90 points as the expiry of derivative contracts ended at an all-time closing high. Banks and Reliance led the gainers while Metals and Bharti Airtel saw weakness on selling pressure. As volatility has narrowed down in the past few days, we can expect renewed pressure on markets as it moves below 16550.
U.S indices fell on fears of a faster tapering of the Federal Reserve’s bond purchase program, although gains in banks and some strong earnings reports helped cap losses. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 53.39 points, or 0.15%, at 35,352.11 and the S&P 500 was down 10.14 points, or 0.23%, at 4,486.05. The Nasdaq Composite was down 22.96 points, or 0.15%, at 15,018.90.
Asian markets trade cautiously ahead of Fed’s Jackson Hole. The highly anticipated Jackson Hole symposium from the Fed will be held virtually on Friday. Investors are expecting to hear what Powell thinks about the state of the U.S. economy and how he might guide the central bank’s exit from the measures it took to rescue the economy from the Covid-19 pandemic. Oil prices fall first day in four as virus concerns return.
