Sensex up 515 pts: CLOSING BELL: Easing CPI figures reduced the probability of a 75-bps rate hike in the upcoming US FOMC meeting
Stock market highlights: Lower-than-expected inflation in the US bolstered equities across the globe as investors turned to riskier assets. Hopes that the US Federal Reserve may go slow on its rate hike plan pumped up equities, cooled off bond yields and supported the Indian rupee. The US retail inflation for July came in at 8.5 percent, as against an estimated 8.7 percent, and 9.1 percent in June.
“While the CPI continues to hover near a four-decade high, easing CPI figures reduced the probability of a 75-bps rate hike in the upcoming US FOMC meeting. Before this number came in, there was a 68 percent probability that the Fed would hike another 75 bps in the next FOMC meeting. While we do understand these numbers are higher than the US Fed’s comfort level of 2 percent, the fact of the matter is that inflation has started inching downwards, giving great comfort to investors. That being said, with the way crude prices are declining, it could further ease by the time US inflation data comes in next month,” said Sunil Damania, Chief Investment Officer, MarketsMojo.

European markets were mixed on Thursday as investors assessed their monetary policy expectations after a cooler-than-expected US inflation print, and digested a raft of corporate earnings. The pan-European Stoxx 600 hovered 0.1 percent higher in early trade, with oil and gas stocks climbing 1.4 percent while basic resources fell 0.7 percent.
Shares in Asia-Pacific, too, climbed. Hong Kong’s tech-heavy Hang Seng index led gains, up 2.4 percent, as the tech sector benefited from the prospect of less aggressive interest rate hikes.
US stock futures ticked up to 0.3 percent higher in early premarket trade as Wall Street looks to build on a surge that took the S&P 500 to its highest point since early May.

US CPI inflation smoothened to 8.5 percent in July as lower energy prices offset the increase in food and shelter cost. Domestic investors await the release of India’s inflation data due today, which is expected to show a decline in inflation trend on an MoM basis.”
