Abhimanyu Sofat, Head of Research, IIFL Securities, stated in making the stock market crash report, “RBI policy announcement of keeping rates unchanged is a surprise; this may lead to a negative impact especially the currency market. With the US yield, inching up to 3.25 percent it was expected the RBI would increase the rates to protect against inflation rise. We believe because of the policy one should continue to focus on export-oriented and import substitution stories from both the service and manufacturing sector. The presumption of lower inflation due to lower food prices may be a bit incoherent as core inflation may rise due to the depreciating currency. If the crude prices continue to surge then RBI may have to come with frontloaded rate increases.”
