Gold, Silver under pressure as Dollar Index rebounds

During the last week, prices of base metals like zinc, lead, and copper rose as the bulls made a comeback. Whereas, the prices of gold and silver hit the bottom by dipping 2% and 2.3%. Gold slipped below $1,900 mark during the week to close at $1,891.3 and silver slipped below its $27 to close at $26.645. In the initial days of the week, both the metals were on a rising trend due to the political uncertainty in the US Senate. In addition, numbers of the US ADP Non-Farm Employment Change fell by 123,000 for the month of December 2020, which is much lower than the expectations of +60,000. That too helped in the uplift. However, as the US Political tensions subsided a bit after the Democrats won two seats in the Senate, the Gold prices made a sharp decline.

As per the media reports, Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine proved effective in the UK and South Africa against a key mutant of the new variant of corona virus, which is highly transmissible. This news also weighed on the gold and silver prices. Along with these factors, the US Treasury yields soared above 1% earlier in the week, which also had a negative impact on gold and silver prices. The US Dollar traded higher at 89.85 against the basket of six currencies.

During the current week, important economic data such as US’ 10-year bond auction on 12th January, Eurozone’s Industrial Production for the month of November 2020 and US’ 30-year old auction on 13th January, US’ unemployment claims on 14th January, UK’s GDP for the month of December 2020, UK’s industrial production and manufacturing production for the month of November 2020, and US’ industrial production for the month of December 2020 on 15th January, will be released. Investors need to keep an eye on these data for the week as they can have an effect on both, base metals commodities and bullion market commodities.

In the current week, we expect gold in COMEX market to be in the range of $1,922 to $1,769, while silver is expected to be in the range of $26.8 to $19.6. Whereas, as per our prediction for bullion market traders, in gold contract futures, we advise to enter at the price of 48,100 with a stop loss of 46,955 and a target of 51,300.

Market expected to remain volatile due to the US Political Tensions

During the first week of the calendar year 2020, market has remained volatile, by steeping to the low levels of 48,174 and touching the high of 48,616. At the start of the week, both the indices were soaring, as the investors sentiments were boosted supported by the positive global cues, such as, US unemployment claims, Manufacturing Purchasing Manager’s Index (PMI), Factory Orders, UK’s data including Final Manufacturing PMI and M4 Money Supply, Euro zone’s Retail Sales, Unemployment change, M3 Money Supply, Services PMI, Producer Price Index (PPI), which came in better than expected.

As far as domestic data is concerned, Market Manufacturing PMI and Export numbers for the month of December 2020 were better than consensus expectations, which also supported the bull sentiments. Additionally, the Indian government gave approval to two of the COVID-19 vaccines for the country, which is again a positive sign for the economy. However, the gains were capped after the imports of the country for the month of December 2020 also increased, resulting into decreasing the trade balance numbers, which came in below the consensus expectations.

In the US, on Wednesday, it was decided that Democrats and Republicans will resume the process of counting the Electoral College votes that will certify President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. President Trump’s supporters left a rally where he was speaking and stormed the US Capitol, breaching the Senate chamber and forcing Congress to halt the certification of the Electoral College vote for President-elect Joe Biden on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021. The global markets soaked, after the investors feared ahead of this US political uncertainty, and so did our domestic markets. However, on Thursday morning, the Indian markets advanced after democrats took control of the Senate, following key elections.

As for the sectoral indices’ overall performance during the week, Bank Nifty, Nifty IT, Nifty Media and Nifty Metal were the outperformers, which increased by an average of around more than 0.5%, out of which, IT and Metal stocks increased by around >1%. However, for the week, FMCG stocks were the underperformers.

For the upcoming week, we expect higher volatility in the market ahead of the global cues. India VIX has also been on the up-move. We expect Nifty to remain in the range of 13,658 to 14,700, whereas, we expect Sensex to remain in the range of 47,214 to 49,459.

2020 – A Roller Coaster Ride for Equities

Losses Due to Explosive Cocktail, Recovered

The calendar year 2020 has been a roller coaster wild ride for the equity markets all over the world as the once in a lifetime pandemic hit at the start of the year. Nifty and Sensex took a historic toll of 38.3% and 37.8% respectively in March end this year as compared to 31st Dec-19 closing, to fall at the levels of 7,511 and 25,639 respectively. However, no one could have anticipated that the markets will not only recover the losses of March, but will also give eye-popping gains by the end of the year. Nifty and Sensex has gained tremendously by almost 83% each, to end at 13,981.75 and 47,751.33 respectively on 31st Dec-20 as compared to the steep levels of Mar-20. This year has been full of events outside the realm of imagination.

Amidst the down-moves, the domestic market had also witnessed a few up-moves in March-April after the RBI stepped in with emergency liquidity support as the Dalal Street wasn’t able to digest the explosive cocktail of deadly pandemic, resultant global meltdown and weak economic conditions of the world. The turbulence was also felt by the global market as Dow Jones suffered its worst hit and US oil futures turned negative for the first time in the history.

2020 – The Year of Stellar IPO Listing Gains

Mainboard IPOs Raised ~ ₹26,640 Crores in 2020

Total number of mainboard IPOs in 2020 decreased just marginally as compared to that in 2019, despite the pandemic that crashed the world’s global markets and economy badly in the month of March this year. As compared to 16 mainboard IPOs in 2019, which collectively raised around ₹ 12,362 crs, a total of 15 mainboard IPOs raised around ₹ 26,639 crs in 2020, which is 2.15x more. In 2019, a total of 47 IPOs were set to raise funds worth ₹ 51,000 crs, but the companies lapsed their SEBI approval due to weakness in broader market. However, even 2020 was not that great of a year for the companies. As a result, we didn’t see as many IPOs as we expected during the year.

Out of 15 mainboard IPOs, 6 of them gave more than 50% listing gains, whereas, 4 IPOs gave negative listing gains. Chemcon gave the highest listing gains of 115%, followed by Happiest Minds Technologies Limited which gave 110.8%.Route Mobile also gave more than 100% of listing gains.

In 2021, more mainboard IPOs are expected. However, if the new COVID-19 strain spreads at a faster pace, it can hit the broader and domestic markets.
