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

Asian markets declined following a slump on Wall Street as the Federal Reserve pushed back against bets for interest rate cuts this year while Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen rattled bank shares. U.S. traders got a double dose of stress on Wednesday that reversed an initial rally in shares following the Fed’s expected 25-basis-point rate hike. In a broad-based selloff, the S&P 500 dropped 1.7%. All 22 stocks in the KBW Bank Index retreated, with the measure of US financial heavyweights down almost 5%. Additionally, Yellen told lawmakers that the government wasn’t considering “blanket” deposit insurance to stabilize the banking system while Fed chief Jerome Powell said he was prepared to keep raising rates until inflation shows signs of cooling. Meanwhile, the yield on 10-year treasuries were trading at 3.46%. Crude prices were trading around $76-mark, while Bitcoin was hovering around 27,000-level. At 6:22 a.m., the Singapore-traded SGX Nifty, an early indicator of India’s benchmark Nifty 50, was down 0.41% at 17,087. Both the Indian benchmark indices—Sensex and Nifty—closed around 0.2% higher, with pharma, healthcare and PSU stocks leading the rally. The currency markets were closed on Wednesday on account of Gudi Padwa celebrations.
