Global Economic News:
US economy shows
signs of strength
After a run of strong economic data from the United States, hopes
intensified this week that the reflationary period underway since late 2016
would prove more durable than the four prior upturns during the current
business cycle, which began in early 2009. January retail sales were a major
bright spot, rising a better-than-expected 0.4%, while December sales were
revised up 1% versus a previously reported 0.6% advance. Firmer consumer prices
at both the headline and core level, buoyant manufacturing output and upbeat
regional Fed manufacturing surveys—particularly the Philadelphia Fed's
manufacturing index — which soared to a 33-year high — added to investor
Fed’s Yellen reiterates case for rate hikes
After a string of strong economic reports, markets expect the US
Federal Reserve to hike rates in the first half of 2017, perhaps as soon as
next month’s meeting of the Fed’s rate-setting committee. In congressional
testimony this week, Chair Janet Yellen said that it would be risky to wait too
long to raise interest rates and that the committee would consider hiking rates
in coming meetings. Yellen holds press conferences once per quarter, and the
two rate hikes this cycle have both come at meetings that were followed by
press briefings. Her next press conference is scheduled for 15 March, with
another on 14 June.
Mnuchin confirmed as Treasury pick
US president Donald Trump’s pick for treasury secretary, Steven
Mnuchin, was confirmed by the US Senate this week and sworn into office shortly
thereafter. Tax reform is expected to be Mnuchin's early focus with Trump
unveiling his tax reform package in the next few weeks.
Greek bailout lenders at loggerheads
The International Monetary Fund and eurozone finance ministers remain
at odds over the direction of the Greek bailout process. The two sides hope to
iron out a deal early next week to allow the IMF to release €7 billion in aid
to Greece ahead of European elections, which kick off next month. The creditors
hope to keep Greece from becoming a campaign issue in elections in the
Netherlands in March and in France in April and May for fear that the matter
could further fuel an anti-European Union populist backlash. IMF and Eurogroup
finance ministers have been unable to reach agreement on the IMF’s proposal to
grant Greece some level of debt relief. Without that relief, the fund says,
Greece’s debt is unsustainable.
GLOBAL CORPORATE NEWS
Comings and goings in Washington
It was an eventful week for appointees of President Trump. In addition
to Mnuchin taking the helm at Treasury, the president accepted the resignation
of his national security advisor, General Michael Flynn. Trump scrambled to
nominate R. Alexander Acosta as labor secretary after fast food executive
Andrew F. Puzder withdrew his nomination.

Pick of the week:
Derivative Ideas Glenmark
Pharmaceuticals Ltd For Target Rs. 980.00
After trading with bearish bias for over a week, GLENMARK posted decent
recovery from day��s low on 16th February and settled near day’s high,
indicating buyer’s interest at current levels. Early signs of recovery are also
visible on the daily chart. Considering all, we recommend buying this stock.
Pharmaceuticals Limited @ 926-930 Stoploss 905 Target
Markets rebounded swiftly today and gained over half a percent. The
upbeat trade deficit figure aided a firm start which was supported by select
index majors. Mostly sectoral indices traded in line with the benchmark and
ended higher. Besides, recovery in the midcap and smallcap space added to the
positivity. We feel the consolidation is not over yet and its range has
slightly broadened now. A decisive move above 8850 in Nifty will trigger
further up move else range bound bias will continue. Amidst all, stocks are
witnessing moves on both sides so traders should focus more on trade management
and maintain a balanced portfolio. .

The NIFTY seems to be locked in a tussle spacing
8827-8715, that’s around a 115 points. Index may now look for an immediate
technical trigger to break this deadlock. Some correction towards 8640-8580
levels may set in, if prices break the low @ 8715 mark. In the medium term, the
SUPPORT zone now shifts upwards to 8537, the 3 week LOW; followed by 8330, that
corresponds to 5 week’s LOW. On the other hand, If 8850 gets breached
convincingly, upside to the July 2016 HIGH @ 8935 would be in contention.
