The Federal Reserve meeting has caused a significant shakeup for Indian markets, which has seen some improvements for future predictions. Despite the negative signs coming out from the QE index, there were confident statements from the Feds. The result of these changes has also seen Nifty 50 hit new records in the Indian market.
Looking back at 2013, its currency (Rupee) devalued drastically after large flows of foreign importation and depreciating margins for cooperating investors to survive. It is safe to say that the country is faring much better now, and investors are now finding attractive opportunities. This is in contrast with the current inflation rate of the United States market, which has now hit a new high for the first time in 13 years. The numbers sit comfortably at 5.4%
COVID-19 New wave and Future Projections
It is no longer news that India is on the list of countries recently hit with the new wave of coronavirus cases, which has prompted more negative buzz than positive. Demands dwindled when the first wave hit the country in 2020 while imports crashed at alarming levels.
Despite this, the country’s currency will still maintain the needed support as long as foreign inflows into its already larger market are steady. As the coronavirus pandemic rages on, most of the major players in the forex market are no longer seeing the support they need to sustain foreseeable growth. This has made more countries place their bets on markets with better leads.
One of these countries is India, which benefited from their foreign reserves mitigation of 450 billion dollars. The mitigation percentage was an estimated 33%, and given the outflow of government aid on the pandemic, the total equity reads at over 600 billion dollars. The reasons for India’s surge in foreign reserves are also owed to both the FDI and FPI inflows.
This timeframe of upward movement is significant due to its impressive numbers on the moving average. The gains of the FPI (which reads at 20 billion dollars) have also contributed largely to the poor records coming from the United States foreign market space.
The year 2019 closed with large spreads and later increased by the end of 2020 Q1. By October 2020, the Indian market began to record new market highs. Despite the recovery, it is still predicted that the Indian economy might not be stable enough for the forthcoming changes induced by the Feds. Any little gains from the US market soon might deter this growth, and FPI might withdraw its support from the Indian economic equity.
The Role of the FDI in Projection Rates
In the case of the FDI, positive changes were notable during the timeframe, and it played the most critical role in India’s bloated reserves. Reliance Industries and numerous foreign investors also had a role to play in this expansion. In general, the FDI has the firepower to push up the Indian stock market, especially when backed up with better policies, investment opportunities, and a more favorable business environment.
