Global Economic News:
Fed hikes rates, reveals plan to shrink bond holdings
Despite falling inflation data in recent months, the US Federal Reserve hiked rates on Wednesday, and indicated it will likely hike rates once more this year. Also, the central bank laid out the framework it will use when it begins to shrink its massive balance sheet, a process it indicated will begin later this year. The Fed will initially allow $10 billion in securities to mature each month — $6 billion in Treasuries and $4 billion in mortgage and agency debt — gradually increasing until it reaches a cap of $50 billion a month. In her Wednesday press conference, Fed chair Janet Yellen chalked up the recent decline in inflation to one-off factors such as falling prices for cell phone service and prescription drugs. Despite three consecutive monthly declines in consumer prices, the Federal Open Market Committee said that it expects inflation to stabilize around the committee’s 2% target in the medium term. Despite three rates hikes, yields on US 10-year notes are nearly a half-percent lower today than they were when the FOMC resumed its tightening cycle in December 2016.
New party set to grab French majority
French president Emmanuel Macron’s Republic on the Move party is set to secure a significant majority in the National Assembly, based on voting in the first round of the two-round process. His party is projected to win as many as 450 of the 577 seats in France’s lower house, potentially giving him the ability to push through needed, but previously unpopular, reforms. The final round of voting takes place on Sunday, 18 June.
IMF ups China outlook
The International Monetary Fund raised its gross domestic product forecast for China to 6.7% in 2017, up from its prior 6.6% projection, the second time the fund has boosted its outlook. China should embrace reform while growth is strong, the IMF said, since buffers are sufficient to ease the transition and to avoid sharp adjustments down the road.
Greek debt relief will have to wait
Greece’s creditors reached another deal to release a further round of funding to keep the country afloat. The lifeline did not include an agreement to cut Greece’s debt load, as had been hoped, postponing discussions on that matter until August 2018. Under the terms of the deal, Greece will be granted access to an additional €8.5 billion, though its debt remains excluded from the European Central Bank’s asset purchase program. Greek unemployment stands at 23%, and the Greek economy has shrunk 27% since 2008, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
US revises Cuba policy
The Trump administration announced a revised Cuba policy on Friday that will tighten rules on Americans traveling to Cuba and restrict US companies from doing business with entities controlled by the Cuban military. Exceptions will be made for US air carriers and cruise lines.
GLOBAL CORPORATE NEWS
UK election fallout reverberates
Credit rating agency Moody’s Investors Service warned this week that the minority government resulting from the recent snap election in the United Kingdom further complicates Brexit negotiations with the European Union. The latest political developments are a credit negative, and the government will likely be forced to put fiscal deficit cuts on hold, the agency said. Meanwhile, inflation remains a major concern for Bank of England policymakers after consumer prices rose 2.9% versus a year ago, the fastest pace in nearly four years. Markets were caught by surprise as three members of the eight- member Monetary Policy Committee — there is one vacancy on the committee — voted to raise interest rates this week in order to rein in inflation. London’s financial community had expected to hear from Chancellor of the Exchequer Phillip Hammond and Bank of England governor Mark Carney late in the week, but both cancelled scheduled speeches out of respect for those killed and injured in the Grenfell Tower apartment building fire.

Accumulate HDIL Ltd For Target Rs.110.00
Hdil, after prolong corrective phase, has been trading in a broader range of 50-110 for last three years.
Technically, the realty index has witnessed bullish reversal after several years of underperformance and Hdil is also rebounding in line with the sectoral index.
Currently, it has been consolidating above the support zone of multiple moving averages with exponential rise in volumes which indicates accumulation. The chart pattern along with oscillators is also pointing towards strong prospect of retesting the upper band of the range in near term and possibly a breakout also this time. In short, we strongly advise traders to use this phase to accumulate in the given range of 90-93 with close below stop loss of 83 for the target of 110.

Near the support zone of 9580-9560 bulls rushed in to provide support to the benchmark index. Thus Nifty managed to close just above the 20 DMA. Till the time the key Moving Average & the lower channel line holds on closing basis sharper decline is unlikely. On the higher side, 9627-9655 is a key resistance zone to watch out for. Once that gets taken off, the next move on the upside can take the index to 9815, which is our short term target.
