Stock Market Live: Indian indices were off day’s low but continued trading lower on Friday following losses in global peers as bond yields surged again.

Domestically, broad-based selling was seen across most sectors with banking, financial, and metal sectors leading the losses. However, a recovery in the Energy, auto and IT sectors capped losses.

“The ‘bond bears vs equity bulls’ game continues in the US market with similar reverberations in other developed and emerging markets. The highly valued Nasdaq appears to be in a short- phase of reversion to mean, having declined 10% from record highs. The US 10-year yield has again spiked to 1.575% giving further ammunition to bond bears. Back home, both FIIs & DIIs turned sellers yesterday impacting market sentiments. The steady rise in the dollar index also is not good news for FII inflows. In spite of all these the texture of the market remains ‘ buy on dips’ since the ‘growth & earnings recovery story’ is intact and ample liquidity is available waiting to be invested. The comments of the Fed chief Jerome Powel before the FOMC Meet will be keenly watched by the market. The outperformance of mid-small-caps is likely to continue”

Seeing a commodity boom; gold prices to settle at $1,700-1800/oz in 2021: Citi’s Edward Morse

Edward Morse, Global Head of Commodities Research at Citi Group, in an interview with CNBC-TV18, on Thursday said he sees a boom time for commodities. “Definitely a boom time for commodities,” said Morse. “It is misleading to call it a supercycle or anything in between a boom and a supercycle,” he added. For gold, he said, “We think this is going to settle between $1,700 per ounce and $1,800 per ounce range where it has been trading recently. It may go down a bit. We believe that central banks particularly in emerging markets (EMs) are going to be increasing their gold holdings just as they were increasing them over the course of the ten years before the pandemic made them a little bit too expensive for EMs central banks.”

Meanwhile, in Asia, stock markets skidded to one-month lows on Friday as rising U.S. Treasury yields again rattled equity investors while hoisting the dollar to a three-month high, which in turn dragged the Japanese yen.
