Fed makes second straight rate cut, gives mixed signals on next move

The US Federal Reserve cut interest rates by a quarter of a percentage point for the second time this year on Wednesday in a widely expected move meant to sustain a decade-long economic expansion, but gave mixed signals about what may happen next. The central bank also widened the gap between the interest it pays banks on excess reserves and the top of its policy rate range, a step taken to smooth out problems in money markets that prompted a market intervention by the New York Fed this week.

Wall Street extends losses following Fed announcement

US stocks extended losses on Wednesday after the Federal Reserve cut interest rates by a quarter of a percentage point in a widely expected move, but gave mixed signals about what may happen next. With continued economic growth and strong hiring "the most likely outcomes," the Fed nevertheless cited "uncertainties" about the outlook and pledged to "act as appropriate" to sustain the expansion. Expectations of lower rates have supported Wall Street's rally this year, with the benchmark S&P 500 now about 1% below its record high close in July.

Market was rangebound with a positive bias backed by stability in oil prices with signs of faster restoration in Saudi production. Further rupee gained and 10-year yield declined that added some respite to the sentiment. Auto pact was rangebound as the sector is unlikely to get any interim relief by way of GST cut due to concern of further shortfall in tax collection and challenges to meet fiscal target

- Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services

05:00 PM

If Nifty breaks below 10,820, it would witness selling, which would take the index towards 10,780-10,720. Nifty is trading below 20, 50, 100 and 200-day SMA's, which are important short term moving averages, indicating negative bias in the short to medium term. Nifty continues to remain in short term sideways trend hence buying around major support zone and profit booking around resistance zone is advisable. The daily strength indicator RSI and momentum oscillator Stochastic have both turned negative and are below their respective reference lines indicating negative bias

Nifty recovered after heavy selling witnessed in earlier session. It was heartening to see broader markets come back so quickly. Market is witnessing value buying, especially in mid and smallcaps. Nifty overall has been in a broader 10,650-11,150 range and either side breakout would give sizeable trading opportunity. Till 10,650 zone is not breached on the downside decisively we remain contra bullish on the Nifty

The correction in crude oil prices has definitely provided respite to investors. Nonetheless, geopolitical developments would still be one of the key factors on investors’ radar as any further escalation would have an adverse impact on markets and the economy. Apart from this, the FOMC meet outcome tonight would be a key factor as there is a wide expectation of a rate cut. However, commentary on growth and rate outlook would be a crucial. On the domestic front, the recommendations of GST Fitment committee to not reduce rates in certain sectors has impacted sentiments, however the final decision would be taken at the GST Council meet on September 20

The brokerage said that the HFC sector provides attractive long-term investment opportunities since the concerns raised against the NBFC business model do not uniformly apply across NBFCs and within the HFC space. "Besides, collateralised lending with property as collateral is the safest form of lending among varied NBFC segments. The generic housing finance opportunity remains large and ‘failure-remote’ HFCs will garner a significant share of this prospective opportunity," it said.
