The liquidity deficit in the banking system reached a four-week high, exceeding 1.5 trillion rupees. The one-day call money rate ended at 6.70% vs. 5.75% on Monday.
  • Government Bond Brief: Government bond yields rose as mutual funds, facing outflows, sold securities to generate cash for month-end redemptions. The yield on the 10-year benchmark 7.10%, 2034 bond ranged between 6.95-7.02%, closing at 6.99%.
  • Corporate Bond Beat: Yields on corporate bonds remained flat in the secondary market as participants mostly stayed on the sidelines due to a lack of significant domestic and foreign triggers. Despite a rise in government bond yields, the corporate bond market was unaffected due to minimal trading activity.
  • Forex Flash: The rupee settled largely steady against the dollar as banks' purchases of the US currency on behalf of importers offset their dollar sales for foreign portfolio investors. After fluctuating within a range of 8 paise, the rupee closed at 83.4325 per dollar, slightly down from Monday's close of 83.4600 per dollar.
  • Stocks Spotlight: Extending gains for the second consecutive session, benchmark equity indices reached new lifetime highs as a surge in banking and financial services shares provided strong support.

International Markets

  • US Stocks: On Tuesday, the Dow fell as investors awaited important inflation data that is expected out this week, while the Nasdaq surged 1.3% and the S&P climbed 0.39%, driven by strength in Nvidia and other tech mega-caps. Nvidia, a leading AI chip firm, experienced a 6.8% increase, recovering from a recent three-session sell-off.
  • Treasuries: The yield on the 10-year treasuries remained stable at 4.25%, despite the hawkish remarks made by two US Fed governors.  On Tuesday, Federal Reserve Governor Michelle Bowman said holding the policy rate steady "for some time" should moderate inflation, but she would raise borrowing costs if needed. According to US Fed Reserve Governor Lisa Cook, interest rates should be lowered "at some point" because of declining inflation and a weaker labour market.
  • Currency:  The US dollar rose on Tuesday as Federal Reserve officials expressed optimism and housing market statistics showed stability. These indicators suggested the central bank would start rate cuts slowly. After remaining stable in March, U.S. single-family house prices rose 0.2% in April. The 12-month housing price index rose 6.3% after 6.7% in March, providing a boost to the greenback.
