IT Stocks Leads Market Surge After US Fed Meeting

The IT sector has been trending in a bull rise after the steady consequence rates of the US monetary meeting. Indian IT major TCS's share price has surged to the tune of 2 per cent and came close to its 52-week high of Rs. 3698.40 a piece on NSE, Infosys shares went up around 3 per cent, HCL Tech share price shot up around 3 per cent and touched a new 52- week high of Rs.1,419.25 per share levels. Cyient shares shot up to the tune of 4.50 percent whereas KPIT Technologies' share price went up around 1.50 percent.

The observation is snoozing to hint at either rate cuts or remaining unchanged by the US stock market. This unusual stance will actuate RBI to go for a rate cut in the upcoming MPC meeting. Hence, growth stocks are expected to come into the radar of stock market investors. This is surely going to fuel growth stocks and hence IT shares are expected to pick up momentum in the short to medium term.

The different perceptions of rate cuts are estimulated according to the status of different markets, usually a hike in the interest rates in the US impacts both the Indian Markets and the economy negatively. The market tends to come down, foreign investors pull out, forex starts to deplete, the economy is at risk of mounting inflation, and the rupee falls against the dollar. As a general rule of thumb, when the Federal Reserve cuts interest rates, it causes the stock market to go up; similarly, when it raises the interest rates, it causes the stock market to go down.
