Indian Stock Market News Today: Reason For Market Slump
This Indian stock market meltdown is attributed to the latest update by Russia. Investors sold off their risky and uncertain assets after Vladimir Putin ordered that a part of the Russian military assets be mobilised and also alleged the West of a “nuclear blackmail.” After the Russia-Ukraine war earlier this year, investors were already worried about their positions in stock markets around the world including India. Moreover, the latest update by Russia just made the situation worse.
Another reason for the Indian stock market news today that talks about a decline of indices is the chances of a possible Fed rate hike that would be of about 75 basis points. In addition, there are also estimations of the Fed rate hike to be about 100 basis points. This would be a massive change for the United States and obviously all nations around the world. Moreover, the fact that India is still not working on curbing its inflationary pressures is a matter of concern.
