FOMC raised interest rates by 75 bps on expected lines taking its benchmark rate to a range of 2.25% to 2.5%. The US Fed gave the future interest rate guidance in the range of 3% to 3.5%.
A hike of 75 bps was already discounted by the market. Equity markets are taking comfort from the Fed statement that the US is not in a recession.
“Even after the 75 bps consecutive rate hike by the Fed and indication that “another unusually large increase would be appropriate in the next meeting” the US markets staged a smart bounce back with S&P 500 and Nasdaq rising by 2.62% and 4.06% respectively,” Dr. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at
The market seems to be taking a cue from the Fed chief’s observation that, “I don’t think we are in a recession now, the labour market continues to be tight,” he said.
Sectorally, buying was seen in finance, IT, banks, realty, and power stocks while some selling was visible in healthcare, auto, FMCG, and dividend stocks.
