In the broader Asian market, shares tracked Wall Street gains after the U.S. central bank raised interest rates by 50 basis points but sounded a less hawkish tone than some had feared.

ArcelorMittal Q1 Results: Net income jumps over 80% to $4,125 million
Global steel giant ArcelorMittal on Thursday posted 80.52 per cent growth in net income at USD 4,125 million (about Rs 31,350 crore) for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022. It had posted a net income of USD 2,285 million for the year-ago quarter, the company said in a statement. “ArcelorMittal recorded net income for 1Q 2022 of USD 4,125 million as compared to…a net income of USD 2,285 million for 1Q 2021,” the Luxembourg-based firm said.
We obviously had rate hikes but although yesterday’s timing was a surprise, we are looking at another 100 bps of rate hikes which will take the terminal repo rate to 5.4% in FY24. As far as inflation goes, we are around 6% average for this year. It is not so much inflation as the fact that the rates are too low. That is why there are negative real rates and once the Fed starts to hike, all emerging market central banks including the RBI have to follow suit.

Banks with higher CASA mix and healthy mix of floating loans are well positioned to navigate through the rising rate environment. Though we expect a calibrated increase in term deposit rates – given ample liquidity – the cost of SA is likely to stay unchanged. We believe that large private banks with strong liability franchises are well placed to gain incremental market share. Banks with a higher mix of floating rate book stand to benefit from this turn in rate cycle, which is likely to progress at a rapid pace. We maintain our preference for ICICI Bank and SBI.

Market View: V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services
On the other hand, the Fed’s clear communication triggered a sharp relief rally in the US market. There are three positive takeaways from the Fed’s announcement. One, there won’t be a 75% rate hike and the market can expect a 50bp rate hike in the next two meetings also. Two, there is some evidence that inflation may have peaked. Three, the US economy continues to be strong with household spending, businesses and labour markets in good shape.
It remains to be seen whether the relief rally will sustain.
