From The Desk Of Editor


n the week gone by, global markets looked cautious amid a worrisome surge in new I infections, dismal unemployment numbers and a bleak economic forecast from the Federal Reserve that recovery from the pandemic would take years. Besides, the fresh concerns about the second wave of coronavirus infections spooked the confidence of the market participants. Meanwhile, the Fed has said that it would keep its benchmark interest rate near zero through 2022 and would continue to support the US economy. The meaning thereby is that there would be no constrain of liquidity in the market. Fed has estimated that the economy will shrink 6.5 per cent this year, in line with other forecasts, before expanding 5 per cent in 2021. The Fed also projects the unemployment rate to fall to 9.3% by year-end from 13.3% in May. Recent data showed that GDP in the euro area contracted by 3.6% compared to the previous quarter.

Back at home, Indian market's roller coaster ride continued as the market mood has turned sour this week on the back of weak global cues, Supreme Court's comments on adjusted gross revenue (AGR) dues and anticipation by the section of participants that the government may resort to stringent measures like lockdown to combat the rise in infections numbers, impacted investor sentiment. However on Friday, market managed to close in green led by strong buying interest in auto and finance stocks. Recently, Fitch Ratings has said that the Indian economy is likely to bounce back with a sharp growth rate of 9.5 per cent next year, after the contraction in the current financial year, if it manages to avoid further deterioration in the financial sector. On the flip side, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has said that India’s GDP growth will depend on whether the country faces a second wave of the coronavirus pandemic. Standard & Poor's (S&P) retained India's sovereign rating at "BBB-" - the lowest investment-grade level - with a stable outlook and promised to upgrade the country's ratings if the government significantly curtailed its fiscal deficit. Besides other domestic factors, the positioning of the global markets will continue to dictate the market trend ahead.

On the commodity market front, from the last few weeks, CRB has been gradually gaining buy side momentum and trying to move towards 140; nevertheless it couldn’t sustain at higher side. Three week sharp fall in dollar index amid ease in lockdown lent some support at the same time US and China trade issue kept upside in check. Ultraloose monetary policy is a positive for gold as it put downward pressure to long-term U.S. real yields and thus it is expected to continue its rally. It can move in a range of 45800-48000 whereas silver sails between 48000-51000. Crude rally appears little tired and hence it may see further correction; overall it should move in a range of 2600-3000. The easing of the lockdown for farm sector accelerated pace of transportation of the crop from farms to mandis. BoJ Interest Rate Decision, Inflation Rate of Germany, ZEW Economic Sentiment Index of Euro and Germany, GDP Growth Rate of New Zealand, Unemployment Rate of Australia, BoE Interest Rate Decision, Inflation Rate of Japan etc. are strong triggers for commodities.

Turmeric futures (July) is likely to hold support near 5200, while the upside may remain capped near 5700 levels. The demand for this medicinal plant is increasing from various consuming sectors during this ongoing pandemic, to boost the immunity. The major demand is coming from the milk federation across India for their newly launched “haldi milk” following the self-care guidelines and recommendations issued by the AYUSH ministry as preventive health measures for boosting immunity amid the coronavirus outbreak. The root turmeric prices are witnessing rise in Erode markets & trading around Rs.5,309-6,409 a quintal and root variety at Rs.4,729-5,999 at the Erode Turmeric Merchants Association Salesyard. The upside momentum of jeera futures (July) may get limited & trade sideways to down in the range of 13550- 14500 levels. The large scale disruptions in supply chains are resulting in cancellation of orders. The ports and the weather may play spoilsport, as ports are struggling with huge backlogs coupled with low manpower due to the pandemic and the monsoon looms. Currently, export is allowed from select ports such as Haldia while Dabhol and Finolex in Ratnagiri are shut ahead of the southwest monsoon. Syria and Turkey are yet to come in the market and there was great opportunity for India to export during the new crop season as the sole supplier but that window is also closed in the present scenario. Cardamom futures (July) is expected to plunge further towards 1400-1350 levels. The Covid uncertainty in many upcountry destinations seems have damaged the demand & moreover the arrivals coming to the auctions are from the old stock from the last crop season.


Bullion Gold prices held steady as downward pressure from a stronger dollar countered rising safe-haven demand supported by gloomy economic projections and renewed fears over a second wave in COVID-19 infections. The dollar rose against a basket of major currencies, as the Fed projected the economy would shrink 6.5% in 2020 and the unemployment rate at 9.3% at year’s end. Even if things start to improve, we don’t expect the Fed to increase rates at all, so we’re going to be in a very low-interest-rate environment for the foreseeable future, and that’s positive for gold. Large stimulus measures and low-interest rates tend to support gold, considered a hedge against inflation and currency debasement. Meanwhile, the latest data showed layoffs in the United States are abating, but millions who lost their jobs because of the pandemic continue to draw unemployment benefits, suggesting the labor market could take years to recover. Holdings of the world's largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund, SPDR Gold Trust, rose to 1,135.05 tonnes. Based on weekly charts there is still room for correction in bullion counter. For the coming week, gold may trade in the range of 46500- 47800. Silver may trade in the range of 46550-49700. Overall, there should be limited downside in bullion counter as ultra easy money will remain in the system and dollar index should remain on lower side on fragile economic situation in US. Treasury secretary statement that Lockdown should not happen again in US despite the rapid spread is reflecting the seriousness of the situation. Silver should continue to move up with strength in gold prices nevertheless some expected correction in base metals upside should be capped.


Analyzing at the fear in the international market, sell on rise would be the plan of approach for the internationally linked oilseeds complex. Moreover, the US Department of Agriculture has painted a gloomy picture by raising U.S beginning stocks of soybean & lowering the exports, facing increased competition from Brazil. On the flip side, crude is negatively influencing the commodities, being dragged down by another record build-up in U.S. crude inventories and the U.S. Federal Reserve's projections that the world's biggest economy would shrink 6.5% this year. Last but not the least, the sentiments of the market participants is crumbling amid a fret about the second wave of infections of the coronavirus. Back at home, it is reported that southwest monsoon is progressing well & soon may hit Maharashtra, the major growing regions. This season, there are anticipations that area under soybean may rise as the farmers may get lured by the higher MSP & shift from cotton. Overall, soybean futures (July) is expected to witness correction towards 3700-3650, facing resistance near 3900. On the similar lines, we may see correction in mustard futures (July) towards 4500-4450, if breaks the support near 4540. Going by seasonality, the pace of crushing will slowdown from this month onwards till September, hence the demand from millers may slow down in days to come. The bullish bias may continue to prevail in edible oils buoyed by the strength given by weaker rupee against dollar & the news of hike in import duty hovering around. Soy oil futures (July) is expected to trade on a stronger foot in the range of 800-835, while CPO futures (June) will probably extend its rally till 710-720 levels.


Crude may witness the selling pressure. Oil prices fell by more than 12% in the previous week after made high of 3046. A surge in U.S. coronavirus cases this week raised the prospect of a second wave of the COVID-19 outbreak hitting demand in the world’s biggest consumer of crude and fuel. While producers are cutting supply, demand remains constrained by the outbreak as the market faced the reality that the coronavirus pandemic may be far from over, with cases in the United States alone passing 2 million. But we expect the pace of price recovery to slow down along with rebalancing. Producers from the United States, as well as from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its allies, a group is known as OPEC+, have been cutting supply, some by record amounts. Still, U.S. crude and gasoline stockpiles grew last week, according to government data. U.S. crude oil inventories rose to a record of 538.1 million barrels, as cheap imports from Saudi Arabia flowed into the country. The prices may take support 2590 but in case if prices failed to sustain above this level then the bearish rally may extend till 2310. On the other hand, prices may face resistance near 3040. U.S. natural gas futures rose as output continues to slow despite forecasts for demand to decline, lower liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports, and a weekly storage build in line with estimates. With milder weather expected in mid-June, it is forecasted that U.S. demand, including exports, would slide from 82.6 bcfd this week to 79.6 bcfd next week. On MCX Natural Gas prices may trade in the range of 130- 141. Break on either side will define the next trend.


CCotton futures (June) is expected to witness a consolidation in the range of 16200-16800, with upside getting capped as the supply is outweighing demand. India’s 2020/21 stocks are forecast to surpass the previous year’s record despite a recovery in consumption from COVID-19’s significant effects in 2019/20. India’s stocks are forecast to more than double in the current year amidst the highest production in 6 years, a 4-million bale plunge in consumption, and a decline in exports. Castor futures (July) may continue to show an upside momentum till 3900 taking support near 3700 levels. According to Solvent Extractors Association (SEA) of India, India’s average castor seed productivity has been slightly revised down to 1977 kg/Ha against 1st estimate of 2052 Kg/Ha. Final castor seed production in India is estimated to be 19.62 lakh tons during 2019-20 against the 1st estimate of 20.36 lakh tons and against 10.82 lakh tons in 2018-19. Moreover, the demand for the castor, used in grease and lubricant in the auto industry is increasing in the automobile sector after the ease of the lockdown. The overall trend of mentha oil futures (June) is bearish owing to ongoing harvesting season, however in days to come it is expected to find some support near 1010 & witness short covering towards 1040-1050 levels. It is reported that due to water logging in some areas of Barabanki district, the harvestable crop of mentha has been submerged. Due to this, farmers are facing difficulties & delaying arrivals. Secondly, the worries of mentha farmers are increasing due to untimely rains. There is a possibility of decreasing oil recovery in the crop due to strong sunlight after rains.


Copper can face resistance near 450 while taking support near 419. The prices may feel pressurise as risk aversion grew on diminished expectations that the global economy would recover swiftly from the coronavirus pandemic. Worries intensified about a second wave of the coronavirus in America and this may also depress investor’s sentiment. However, the investment bank Goldman Sachs raised its copper and aluminium forecasts, and lifted its 12- month commodity returns forecast to 13.1%. On-warrant LME copper stocks fell to their lowest since Feb. 24 at 130,225 tonnes. On supply side, Chilean state miner Codelco, the world’s top copper producer, saw production rise 2.8% year on year in April and 3.8% in the first four months of 2020, while BHP´s Escondida, the world’s largest mine, pumped out 102,600 tonnes, a rise of 11.4% on the same month the previous year, an increase of 9% so far in 2020. Zinc may move towards 168 and taking support near 159. With hopes of global economic recovery from the coronavirus crisis, LME zinc may find some support from fundamentals in the medium term but elevated inventories may cap its upsides. Lead can move towards 145 while taking support near 133. Nickel may trade with bullish bias where it may test 990 and taking support near 952. Aluminum may move towards 140 while taking support near 132 due to supply interruption in Russia. Rusal, the largest aluminium producer outside China, is negotiating alternative routes for the raw materials it needs for its Siberian Achinsk alumina plant, after damaged rail infrastructure interrupted supplies.

From the last few weeks CRB has been gradually gaining buy side momentum and trying to move towards 140; nevertheless it couldn’t sustain at higher side. Three week sharp fall in dollar index amid ease in lockdown lent some support at the same time US and China trade issue kept upside in check. Oil prices fell more sharply on worries about slow demand growth with coronavirus cases rising, U.S. crude stockpiles hitting an all-time high and the U.S. Federal Reserve projecting recovery from the pandemic would take years. U.S. crude inventories rose unexpectedly by 5.7 million barrels in the week to June 5 to 538.1 million barrels - a record - as imports were boosted by the arrival of supplies bought by refiners when Saudi Arabia flooded the market in March and April. Natural gas futures too saw some dip in the prices. The U.S. Federal Reserve said the world's largest economy would shrink 6.5% this year and the unemployment rate would be at 9.3% at the end of 2020 in its first projections of the pandemic era. It capped the upside of base metals and some of them such as lead and zinc saw some decline in the prices. Copper was the strongest among all and moved up on technical breakout.

Bullion counter was up for the same safe haven buying reason as the number of cases rose and the world is continuously talking about second wave of COVID 19. Gold moved up after Wednesday’s U.S. Federal Reserve policy meeting decided on holding the benchmark rate near zero. Silver followed the footsteps of gold and closed in green zone. In edible oil and oilseeds complex, both behaved in different way; edible oil futures moved up whereas oil seeds futures were down on profit booking. Mustard rally was overstretched and now crushers are refraining to buy on such higher rates when fresh arrival is expected to hit the market soon. Thus we noticed correction form the higher side. CPO traded up on strong BMD amid expectation of hike in import duty in India which will make it expensive, if happens.The sentiments are bearish on the expectations of normal rainfall this monsoon season will likely see acreage under soybean crop rise by around 10% to nearly 12.4 mln ha in 2020-21 (Jul-Jun) kharif season. In spices, coriander and jeera saw gain on good offtake in spot market though turmeric traded down on smooth supply. The demand for chana has come down after the Madhya Pradesh State government has permitted purchase of chana with 2 per cent khesar a legume long, which could be toxic.

Market Stance

Indian rupee somehow broke the narrow move pattern after fear of second wave hit of coronavirus outbreak prompted rupee to fell briefly below 76.00 this week. However major flows in coming days from Reliance Jio stake sell along with SBI’s fund raising program will give cushion in domestic unit. On the negative side, the gradual loosening of strict containment measures has provided a slight boost to activity, but with new COVID-19 cases still rising sharply, the recovery is likely to be slower. Based on rising cases of COVID_19, we may see strength in rupee get cap in coming days. From majors, it has been witnessed that euro has made a complete uturn amid weaker dollar tone and despite fear of rising public debt emerged from latest stimulus injection and going forward bloc currency likely to head higher. Meanwhile Sterling produces choppiest volatility in last few days, last seen during Brexit referendum. The upcoming week will be blocked by important meeting between UK PM Boris Jhonson and EU Commissioner on 15 June as well as BoE policy meet on 18 June. Extreme volatility is expected in coming days however expectations of further rate cut is not imminent but the BoE may need to do much more than the markets currently expect to get the economy back on track.

In comparison, the industry had added 6.82 lakh new folios in April and 9 lakh folios in March. However, it is notable that the number of folios has consistently been on a rise for 72 consecutive months until May. Folios are numbers designated to individual investor accounts. An investor can have multiple folios. According to data from the Association of Mutual Funds in India, the number of folios with 44 fund houses rose to 9.10 crore at the end of May as against 9.04 crore in April.

Credit-risk funds see another month of outflows but redemptions ease

Mutual fund investors were again seeing taking money away from the credit-risk funds that have been at the center of debate since the month of April.

With this credit-risk funds have not seen net-inflows so far this year.

MF schemes can't invest in physical goods except gold: SEBI

Market regulator Sebi said mutual funds cannot invest in physical goods barring gold through gold exchange traded funds (ETFs). Exchange traded commodity derivatives (ETCDs) having gold as the underlying asset would be considered as 'gold-related instrument' for gold ETFs. However, as mutual fund schemes participating in ETCDs may hold the underlying goods in case of physical settlement of contracts, in that case the mutual funds will have to dispose of such goods from the books of the scheme at the earliest. With regard to physical gold and silver, Sebi said such goods will have to be disposed of not exceeding 180 days from the date of holding of such physical goods.
