Indian Share Markets Trade Higher as Investors Cheer Fed Rate Hike; Maruti & Reliance Top Gainers

Asian share markets are higher today as traders cheered a sharp interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve.

The Nikkei advanced 1.1% while the Shanghai Composite added 0.3%. The Hang Seng is down 0.6%.

In US stock markets, Wall Street indices rallied on Wednesday to snap a five-session losing skid after a policy announcement by the Federal Reserve that raised interest rates to market expectations.

The US Federal Reserve on Wednesday raised interest rates by 75 basis points (bps) in the boldest move since 1994.

This is the largest rate hike since 1994 and will affect millions of American businesses and households, pushing up the cost of borrowing for homes, cars and other loans in order to force a slowdown.

With this announcement, the central bank aimed to fight rising inflation without sparking a recession.

Back home, Indian share markets are trading on a positive note. Following consecutive falls this week, Indian share markets reversed course and headed higher.

Benchmark indices opened with strong gains following the SGX Nifty trend as global markets cheered the 75 bps hike.

The BSE Sensex is trading up by 342 points. Meanwhile, the NSE Nifty is trading higher by 91 points.

Maruti and Reliance are among the top gainers today. Power Grid, on the other hand, is among the top losers today.

The BSE Mid Cap index is up 0.7%. The BSE Small Cap index is trading higher by 0.8%.

ACRE has given a binding bid of Rs 2.7 bn to acquire HDFC's Rs 5.8 bn portfolio of the four corporate accounts. Its offer equates to a recovery of 47% for India's biggest home financier.

Siti Networks is the biggest of the four accounts in this portfolio, accounting for Rs 2 bn.

In other news from the banking space, Yes Bank is among the top buzzing stocks today.

Yes Securities, a wholly owned subsidiary of Yes Bank, said it is bullish about expanding footprint in more cities of West Bengal.

Moving on to news from the energy space, Reliance Industries share price rose over 2% today.

These gains in Reliance can be attributed to the company bagging media rights purchase in IPL's e-auction. Reliance Industries, which owns Viacom18 along with Paramount Global and Bodhi Tree Systems, will be the digital streaming partner of the tournament.

This is the first time in the history of the IPL that one group is both a broadcaster and team owner.

Market experts say this is relevant because the e-auction, which saw the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) walk away with Rs 483.9 bn in revenue, has made the league among the most valued in the world.
