Paytm IPO has scarred Mobikwik’s unlisted share
Paytm’s lacklustre listing and its continued underperformance have dented investor sentiment for its smaller unlisted rival MobiKwik, said two traders who specialize in trading shares of unlisted companies.
MobiKwik’s stock was trading at a peak of ₹1,350 a share ahead of the opening of Paytm’s initial public offering (IPO) earlier this month, said one of the two traders, who did not wish to be named. The poor response to Paytm’s IPO and an even more disastrous listing moved Mobikwik shares, too, on the downward path. The shares are trading at `900, a nearly 33% plunge from their peak.

Mumbai-listed Vedanta Ltd’s proposal to spin off key businesses into separate listed companies is unlikely to affect the credit quality of the firm’s parent Vedanta Resources Ltd, Moody’s Investors Service said Monday.

Dollar passes 115 yen for first time since 2017
The US dollar rose above 115 yen for the first time in more than four years on Tuesday as Jerome Powell was nominated to serve a second term as Federal Reserve boss, fuelling expectations he will look to tighten monetary policy faster.
In early trade, the dollar hit 115.10 yen, its highest level since March 2017.
The decision by Joe Biden to stick with Powell led to bets the bank will taper its massive bond-buying programme faster than previously flagged, while some analysts tipped it to hike interest rates as much as three times before the end of next year.
However, the prospect of tighter monetary policy hit US markets, with all three main indexes falling from their intra-day highs. The Dow ended slightly higher but the S&P 500 and Nasdaq lost more than one percent.

Bears in complete control: Angel One
The SGX Nifty was indicating a pleasant start for the week in line with cheerful global bourses. However, we did not open with the same positivity and in fact gave up all gains in the initial trades itself. As the day progressed, the selling augmented across the broader market to break all intermediate supports one after another. During the final hour, market managed to minimize the damage; but still ended the session with nearly a couple of percent loss.
With Monday’s correction, Nifty marked the weakest session in last eight odd months. Throughout last week, our market was feeling the pressure and kept sliding gradually towards the key support of 17700. Technically this level was important because it coincided with the crucial neckline support of bearish ‘Head and Shoulder’ pattern which formed over the past couple of months. With reference to our recent commentary, we had anticipated formation of this pattern and today finally it got confirmed as we convincingly closed below the neckline of the same. Monday’s massive fall finally validates our recent cautious stance on the market. Monday’s low precisely coincides with the daily ’89-EMA’ and generally we consider this as a sheet anchor for prices. But this time, we do not expect it to play similar kind of role for the market. We may see small rebounds since market is a bit oversold, but the possibility of extending this correction is pretty high.
After 17250, the Nifty is likely to continue this weakness towards the psychological level of 17000; where one need to reassess the situation. On the flipside, 17500 – 17650 are now to be considered as immediate hurdles. Traders are advised to use in between recoveries to lighten up longs and don’t be in a hurry to ma
Market view: Nagaraj Shetti, technical research analyst, HDFC Securities
“The market seems to have entered into a sharp downward correction. The overall chart pattern as per smaller and larger timeframe is weak and more weakness could be in store in the near term. Having declined sharply from the highs, the minor pullback rally from the lows can’t be ruled out in the short term, before showing another round of weakness in the market. Further lower levels to be watched at NSE Nifty are 17,000 to 16,800 in the next few weeks.”

Oil slips as investors assess OPEC+ response to reserve release
Oil slipped ahead of an expected announcement by the U.S. on a coordinated release of reserves, with OPEC+ warning that it may not restore as much crude to the global market if consumers go ahead with the move.
Futures in New York fell toward $76 a barrel after rising 0.9% on Monday. The U.S. is preparing to announce the release in coordination with other nations as soon as Tuesday, according to people familiar. The move, likely in conjunction with India, Japan and South Korea, would be an unprecedented effort by consumers to tame prices. China said it’s also working to tap reserves.
OPEC+ delegates said the release of millions of barrels is unjustified under current market conditions and the group may have to reconsider plans to add more oil when they meet next week. A Covid-19 resurgence in the U.S. and Europe, meanwhile, is raising concerns about the outlook for demand.
The rift between producers and consumers threatens to set up a fight for control of the global oil market.
Asian stocks mixed after jump in yields, dollar
Asian stocks were mixed Tuesday after Treasury yields and the dollar jumped as Jerome Powell’s renomination to head the Federal Reserve fueled bets on quicker policy tightening.
Shares rose in Australia but fell in South Korea, while Japan is closed for a holiday. U.S. equity futures fluctuated after the S&P 500 ended in the red and the Nasdaq 100 underperformed after a final-hour selloff in technology shares in the Wall Street session.
Treasuries slid, with markets pricing in a full quarter-point rate hike into the June Fed meeting and seeing a good chance of a second by September and a third by December to fight inflation. Powell and the other Fed chief candidate, Governor Lael Brainard, were seen as having broadly similar policy stances but Brainard was viewed by some as more dovish.
Cash Treasuries won’t trade in Asia due to the Japan holiday. The dollar maintained an advance to around the highest since September 2020 and bullion held a slump. Oil retreated ahead of an expected announcement by the U.S. on a coordinated release of reserves.
