Don't hike repo rate by more than 25-35 bps: Assocham's advice to RBI
IANS -

Expert View: Economic growth driving bull market run despite high interest rates
IANS -
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has raised repo rates four times since May and it is expected to hike the key lending rates again on December 7.

Higher interest rates translate into a decline in stock market's value.

Retail investors with portfolios focused on small caps aren't celebrating
IANS -
This explains the absence of celebration among retail investors whose portfolios are oriented towards small caps, says V.K. Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services. The significant characteristic of the ongoing rally is that it is a mature rally driven by high quality stocks. The earlier rally which took the Nifty from the March 2020 low of 7,511 to 18,604 in October 2021 was a one-way rally driven by liquidity and retail exuberance.

See-saw battle between interest rate and market indices
IANS -
Curiously, this time around there is a conundrum. When the interest rates are going up and also set to go up further, the stock market indices are touching new heights. "It is true that the biggest enemy of equity markets is rising interest rates. This is the normal relationship.

So, this cannot be termed as a bear market rally, he added.
