Shrikant Chouhan, the head of retail research at Kotak Securities, made the following observation about today’s performance,” Investors dumped equity assets as they turned risk off on concerns that a faceoff between Israel and Hamas could further deteriorate the global economy already reeling under higher interest rates and stubbornly high inflation. There are concerns that since most of the oil-producing nations are close to the conflict zone, a prolonged war could trigger an upsurge in international crude oil prices. With a fresh surge in crude oil prices, higher oil import bill going ahead would stoke domestic inflation and prompt the central bank to take a hawkish stance.”
