View on market: Stay Cautious, be with quality business:

Asian markets headed for declines after the U.S. stocks fell and government bonds and the dollar rallied. A fresh turmoil at Credit Suisse Group AG roiled markets days after the collapse of three American lenders. This casts doubt on whether the Federal Reserve will increase interest rates next week. U.S. futures showed fledgling signs of stability after the S&P 500 fell 0.7% on Wednesday. The U.S. benchmark pared earlier losses after Switzerland’s central bank said Credit Suisse would receive a liquidity backstop if needed. The KBW Bank Index, one of the broadest measures of the US banking system, fell 3.6%, undoing a rally from the prior session. Brent crude slipped below $75 a barrel for the first time since December 2021, intraday. Gold prices surged as investors moved away from riskier assets. The yield on 10-year treasuries declined to 3.43%, while Bitcoin was trading around 24,000-level. At 6:05 a.m., the Singapore-traded SGX Nifty, an early indicator of India’s benchmark Nifty 50, was down 0.29% at 16,925. Indian benchmark indices—Sensex and Nifty—tanked for the fifth consecutive day to end at their lowest respective levels since October, as financial and banking stocks led the decline. The Indian rupee maintained its downward trajectory against the U.S. dollar for the fourth day in a row amid a surge in demand for the greenback and continued FPI outflow.
