RBI tolerating higher inflation with an eye on recovery

Indian monetary policy makers are tolerating inflation rates higher than their 4% medium-term target while they focus resources on an economic rebound. Economists see the Reserve Bank of India taking a grin-and-bear it approach to price pressures as it seeks to help the country’s economy recover from one of the world’s worst coronavirus outbreaks. The RBI has chosen to look through a recent surge in inflation because it was supply-side driven, and will only turn persistent when demand kicks in, deputy governor Michael Patra said at a briefing 4 June.

While the wholesale price print due today will probably make for another grim reading, retail inflation is seen hovering above the 5% mark for the third out of five months this year. Monetary policy makers ignored the acceleration and earlier this month retained an “accommodative” stance for as long as needed to restore growth on a durable basis. (Bloomberg)

Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments

“The index continues to be nervous at higher levels; 15,700-1,5800 is posing to be a resistance and this has happened multiple times over the last few trading sessions. The support for the Nifty has been upgraded to 15,700-15,750 and as long as this holds on a closing basis, we are in bullish terrain. Should we break the level of 15,700 on a closing basis, traders should consider wrapping up their long positions and wait for a directional move thereafter. Until then, 15,900-16,000 is the next target for the index.”
