Indian markets climbed the wall of worries after the reserve bank of India (RBI) kept key rates on hold and raised 2HFY18 inflation projection to 4.2%-4.6% which minimizes the probability of a further rate cut in the year 2017.
The central bank also lowered FY18 GVA growth by 60 bps to 6.7 % from 7.3 % on the back of slowing 1QFY18 growth, lower food grains production forecast, the adverse impact of GST on investments and weakening of sentiment across consumer and business.
A part of analyst community feels that the rate easing cycle might have come to an end. Investors should avoid the duration trade in the backdrop of worsening fiscal and bond supply-demand dynamics.
