  • The global trend remains weak:-

After a swift rally seen in US markets on Friday, things were
looking promising for a stable Monday morning. But, Asian markets were trading
weak tracking sharp selloff in Dow Futures.

U.S. stock futures plunged 4.8% to hit their down limit
before daybreak in Singapore. The dollar sank more than 2% against the yen,

  • US Fed’s emergency cut spooks investors:-

The U.S. Federal Reserve and global central banks moved
aggressively on Sunday to buttress a world economy unraveling rapidly amid the
coronavirus pandemic, with the Fed slashing interest rates to near zero, said a
Reuters report.

The US Fed slashed short-term rates to a target range of 0%
to 0.25%, and announcing at least $700 billion in Treasuries and
mortgage-backed securities purchases in the coming weeks.
Depository institutions may borrow from this so-called the discount window for periods as long as 90 days, pre-payable and renewable by
the borrower on a daily basis.

“The Fed also said it would support U.S. banks that began to
tap the capital and liquidity buffers they built up in the aftermath of the
2008 financial crisis and would reduce reserve requirement ratios to 0%
effective on March 26,” said the report.

Crude Oil prices extended losses on Monday, slumping by more

Generally, an orderly decline in crude oil prices, which if occurs due to
increased supply is beneficial for the domestic economy but in case of fears
of a global slowdown, it will result in fall inequities as well.

“During the global financial crisis 2008, crude oil
prices plunged nearly 70% in a span of seven months on demand concerns as the subprime crisis threatened the global economy and financial system.

“The sharp plunge in crude oil prices was mirrored in
the global equities too as the common factor was the global slowdown. Thus,
when it is the question of severe impact on the global economy, crude oil and
wider markets can’t be seen separately,” he said.

  • FPIs press panic button, withdraw Rs 37,976 cr:-
