Share market update

As the market opened, the pressure was visible in the auto, IT, metal, media, and infrastructure companies. Additionally, pressure is being placed on banking equities, which have historically been bullish.

Losers and Gainers


The Nifty pack is rising, with Cipla, Sun Pharma, and IndusInd Bank leading the way. While shares of Tech Mahindra, TCS, Heromotocorp, M&M, and Tata Consumer are all selling at significant losses. In the Sensex pack, only Sun Pharma and IndusInd Bank saw gains. While M&M is under pressure, Tech Mahindra, TCS, Infosys, and Wipro are as well.

State of International Markets


The markets in Seoul, Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong all began trading with a fall on Friday. On Thursday, the US stock markets also experienced a decline. Global stock markets see a severe decrease in August in the US because inflation has fallen below expectations. As a result, many people assume that the Federal Bank, America’s central bank, has the authority to significantly raise interest rates.

The market has shown some signals of the downturn, according to VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services. The biggest worry currently facing the world is an increase in interest rates by the Fed. The likelihood of an economic downturn will grow if interest rates in the US increase significantly.

Rupee Value Declining


On Friday, the opening rate of the rupee versus the dollar was 72.82, down 11 paise. In the opening hours of trading, the rupee reached a level of 79.79 against the dollar. The rupee had dropped 19 paisas to close at 79.91 versus the dollar on Thursday.
