Gold fell to lowest level in more than a week as the dollar rose from session lows on hawkish comments from members of the U.S. Federal Reserve reiterating their fight against inflation. Yesterday, a couple of Fed members stated that there was a long way to go to fight inflation, with Bullard stating that rates should be held high “throughout next year and into 2024.” Officials expect inflation to remain moderate, but flagged drivers of underlying inflation, particularly in a red-hot labor market with “rapid” wage growth, as the most challenging. Treasury yields appear to have been pricing in the increasing prospect of a recession as a key part of the yield curve – the 2-year treasury yield over 10-year treasury yield remains deeply inverted.

Nifty rising to a new record of 18,614 is indicative of the underlying bullishness in the market. But the global market construct is not very favourable for the rally to continue unabated. Also the high valuation in India is becoming a matter of concern. The troubles in China are a matter of concern but it is too early to judge its impact on the global economy. This is an issue that has to be watched closely. Meanwhile, domestic economic cues continue to be positive. The September quarter credit growth has risen to an impressive 17.2 % and the employment by listed companies has crossed the 10m mark in 2021-22. Banking stocks can remain resilient in spite of record levels. Comments and indications on the trajectory of US interest rates are more likely to impact global equity markets more than anything else.
