What’s protecting Indian market from severe fall? Nithin Kamath tells

When markets fall, the first 5-10% is usually okay, but when the drawdown is more then the leverage starts forced unwinding. The intensity of the fall magnifies because the guys who are leveraged will either have to bring in their mark-to-market losses or square off their positions.

And when the markets are in a bearish phase, people squaring off positions creates a really large impact. That’s what happened in the US from March to June this year. The last bit of the fall was leverage being unwound really fast.

In India, we did not have that problem this year because there was hardly any leverage – be it at the customer level, broker level or at the entire industry level. There were hardly any forced leverage square offs, which meant that when other markets fell we fell less. And as it bounced back, we are almost close to all-time highs.

Market View: Dr. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

The market mood has suddenly changed after the release of the Fed minutes which indicate steeper rate tightening than what the market had discounted. Now, the focus will be on what the Fed chief Powel will say at the Jackson Hole symposium on Friday. If he sounds less hawkish there can be a relief rally; otherwise the present drift will continue. The trend in US markets is hugely important for India since the correlation between the two markets is very high.

The sharp decline in India is also due to some profit taking by DIIs who have been sustained sellers in recent days. Profit booking is normal since the market had risen too fast ( Nifty rallied 18% from the June lows) in 2 months. Investors can now buy the dips in a calibrated manner. High quality financials, autos and capital goods can bounce back sharply when the market trend turns.

MOSL on IT sector

Macroeconomic weakness due to rising interest rates, elevated inflation, and the resultant slowdown in corporate growth has led to heightened concerns on demand for IT Services. We analyzed 40 companies across seven key industries to attain a sense of demand environment. Key snippets of their commentaries suggest limited cutbacks, with the exception of severely impacted sectors such as Retail. We continue to see long-term demand for IT Services, and retain our positive stance on the sector.
