    Stock Market LIVE Updates | Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services

    Whenever, the US Bond yield reaches or is nearing 4.335% level, the equity markets world over, including Indian markets start correcting. Currently, the US Bond yields are hovering around its peak level and if it crosses once again above the previous high of October 2022, prospects of correction in the domestic market are expected to brighten. The correction which we are seeing right now may continue further and Foreign Portfolio Investors (FPIs), which are currently in a lull phase in the domestic market, may turn active in pulling out funds.

    Stock Market LIVE Updates | Market expecting 3 rate cuts by Fed in 2024

    "Market is anticipating three rate cut announcements by the US Federal Reserve (US Fed) in calendar year 2024 (CY24). The first-rate cut is expected in June but the probability of this rate cut to materialize has come down from 69% a week ago to 59% currently. There’s no possibility of any rate cut announcement by the Federal Open Markets Committee (FOMC) of the US Fed during its Wednesday meeting. Also, the possibility of the US Fed cutting its interest rates soon is fading fast as the US inflation rate, currently at 3.15%, is still hovering much above the comfort level of 2%. All eyes and ears are now glued to the commentary to be given by US Fed chairman Jerome Powell," saidApurva Sheth, Head of Market Perspectives & Research, SAMCO Securities
