Sensex drops more than 1,300 points due to painful Global Central Bank Policies

Early on Monday, Indian market benchmarks decline, erasing some gains from Friday. Global equities continue to decline due to concern that aggressive rate rises worldwide will stifle economic development.

The broad NSE Nifty 50-index dropped more than 2%, while the 30-share BSE Sensex index plunged by nearly 1,300.

Local equities markets concluded the week with losses despite small gains on Friday due to growing concerns about a worldwide recession brought on by weak economic data from Asia to Europe and the Americas.

The Nifty nudged 36.45 points to 17,558.90, and the Sensex index ended the day with modest gains of 59.15 points to conclude at 58, 833.87.

On Monday, Asian markets declined as bond rates and the dollar increased significantly, valuations for equities and earnings were tested, and there was an increasing likelihood that the United States and Europe would implement more draconian rate hikes.

“After US Fed chairman Jerome Powell said in a speech on Friday that interest rates may continue to climb to keep inflation under control, the whole Asian pack is trading in the red. Powell warned that far worse suffering would result if price stability were not restored, “Prashanth Tapse, Senior Vice President for Research at Mehta Equities, remarked.

Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s warning to impose further restrictions on the markets crushed expectations that the central bank would assist the needs as regularly as in the past.

According to Jason England, global bonds portfolio manager at Janus Henderson Investors, the important conclusions are that the Fed’s top priority should be to contain inflation and that the Funds Rate has to be brought down to a constraining range of 3.5% to 4%.
Rate cuts booked into the market for next year are hasty since the rate must remain higher until inflation is brought down to its 2% objective.

The hawkish message was not what Wall Street wanted to hear, as S&P 500 futures sank another 1.1% after dropping almost 3.4% on Friday. Nasdaq futures also plummeted 1.5% as tech firms suffered from the possibility of weaker economic growth.

The most extensive MSCI index of equities from Asia-Pacific that are not Japanese fell by 1.9%. While the Nikkei in Japan dropped by 2.8%, South Korea lost 2.3%.

A member of the ECB board named Isabel Schnabel warned that central banks must now take significant action to battle inflation, even if doing so causes their economies to enter a recession, over the weekend.

The EUROSTOXX 50 futures dropped 1.7%, and Chinese blue chips fell 0.6% in response to the ECB’s rate concerns.

The aggressive central bank chorus drove up short-term rates globally and further inverted the US Treasury curve as markets priced in a future economic downturn.

Early Asian trade saw the dollar index rise to a new two-decade high of 109.4, as the dollar’s strength pushed other significant currencies to new lows and placed pressure on its equivalents in developing countries.
