MARKET QUOTE | Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services on Thursday's market performance

"Global inflationary pressure following upsetting US inflation data forced the domestic market to trade with deep cuts. Beating the market estimates, US inflation hit a 30-year high level of 6.2% YoY adding fears of an earlier than expected rate hike, while US bond yields shot higher. Rising inflationary pressure along with prospects of an early rate hike can keep the domestic market on edge as such indicators tempt foreign investors to pump out liquidity from emerging markets like India"

Global market update

Inflation fears pressured Asian stocks and buoyed the dollar on Thursday after data overnight showed U.S. consumer prices surged at the fastest pace since 1990 last month, boosting the case for faster Federal Reserve policy tightening.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was down 0.85%, led by a 1.19% slide in Australia's benchmark.

Chinese blue chips slipped 0.09%. Japan's Nikkei bucked the trend by rising 0.24%, supported by the yen's weakness against a resurgent dollar and as U.S. stock futures ticked up slightly.

Overnight though, the S&P 500 tumbled 0.82%, its worst day in more than a month. That marked the first back-to-back declines in a month, after the index closed at a record peak to start the week.
