Markets doing a reality check?
The markets seemed to be in correction mode today after domestic challenges cropped up over the past few days. The uproar by the opposition parties against the farm bills, farmers’ protests in some states, and the resignation of a union minister dented market sentiment. Today, all the sectoral indices declined, and the Nifty Realty (-5.9%), Nifty Metal (-5.5%) and Nifty FMCG (-3.3%) indices were among the worst hit. Adding to the gloom, the Nifty Auto index was also down (-4.4%). The August sales volumes of major auto companies showed signs of recovery. However, going by the performance of auto stocks today—Maruti (-4.8%), Ashok Leyland (-6.4%) and M&M (-5.1%)—it appears as though the market is concerned about the September retail sales figures. Meanwhile, the export-oriented IT industry represented by the Nifty IT index (-0.7%) was affected the least.
The intensity and broad-based nature of today’s fall in the benchmark Nifty50 could be an indication of fading investor confidence. The Nifty Midcap and Nifty Smallcap indices also gave away most of the gains made after SEBI’s tweak relating to multi-cap funds. The above factors suggest that market volatility may rise in the week ahead as we move toward the derivatives expiry on Thursday.
