Markets end mostly higher as buying support emerges on hopes of steady earnings growth and helps major benchmarks recoup their losses from the previous session
The Asian markets ended mostly higher today as buying support emerged on hopes of steady earnings growth and helped the major benchmarks recoup their losses from the previous session. However, the sentiments remained subdued as investors eyed the lack of credible action for raising the US debt ceiling. The US Treasury Department has said that a deal must be struck by August 2 or the United States would be at risk of temporarily not being able to meet commitments such as paying interest on debt, Social Security or paying government employees. The DOW fell in overnight trades, giving up 0.70% and safe havens like Gold and Swiss franc rallied. Indian equities turned the other way though as the central bank hiked the interest rates by a much wider 50 basis points. The Euro surged and DOW futures gained slightly in Asia, helping lift up the momentum.

Key benchmark indices tumbled after a higher-than-expected hike of 50 basis points by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in its key lending rate at a policy review today, 26 July 2011. Interest rate sensitive automobile, real estate and banking stocks led the decline. The BSE Sensex fell 353.07 points or 1.87%, off close to 426.38 points from the day's high and up close to 36.59 points from the day's low. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) raised the repo rate by 50 basis points (bps) to 8% at its first quarter review of monetary policy 2011-12 announced today, 26 July 2011, which was steeper than market expectations of 25 bps hike.
The market may open higher as most Asian stocks edged higher. The rate sensitive auto, realty and banking stocks will be in action as RBI is seen raising its key lending rate by 25 basis points at its first quarter review of the monetary policy 2011-12 today, 26 July 2011, to tame inflation, which remains much above the central bank's perceived comfort level of 5% to 6%.
FIIs bought shares worth a net Rs 315.72 crore on Monday, 25 July 2011, as per provisional data from the stock exchanges. Domestic institutional investors (DIIs) bought shares worth Rs 224.25 crore on that day. Indian stocks shrugged off weak global cues and gained for the second straight day on Monday, 25 July 2011 led by telecom stocks, which rose on hopes other carriers would follow Bharti Airtel by raising call rates. A reform initiative from the government to open up multi-brand retail boosted sentiment. The BSE Sensex rose 148.99 points or 0.80% to 18,871.29, its highest closing level since 7 July 2011.

The biggest problem in the world could have been solved when it was small. ~Witter Bynner.
Problems may be aplenty but thankfully world markets appear to have decoupled from what’s happening in the US. Over the past few trading sessions, we have seen non-US markets displaying commendable resilience in the face of the ongoing drama surrounding the debt deal. We may see continuation of that trend today as well.
The opening on the Dalal Street is expected to be in the green zone tracking positive Asian cues. RBI’s monetary policy will remain in focus.
