View on market: Volatility Prevails, Market is searching for better value

After a quiet session on Wall Street, stocks in Asia were neutral as investors awaited Friday’s jobs report to determine the direction of Federal Reserve policy. Australia’s shares fell, while Japan’s shares increased little. According to earlier data, Japanese companies reduced their expenditure for the first time in five quarters, which may cause the second-quarter economic growth figures to be revised downward. West Texas Intermediate and Brent crude were both trading above the $83 per barrel barrier at the time. The yield on a 10-year US bond was 4.11%, and the price of Bitcoin fell below the 26,000 mark. The GIFT Nifty, a leading indication of the performance of the Nifty 50 Index in India, was at 19,424 at 7:00 a.m., down 15 points or 0.08%.
