Amidst growing concerns over the Israel-Hamas conflict, the Indian domestic market faced significant selling pressure on Wednesday, October 18, leading to a negative closure for the Sensex and Nifty 50.

Escalation Fears Impact Market

Investors are increasingly apprehensive about the Israel-Hamas conflict potentially escalating into a larger regional crisis, which could involve other nations. This escalation could disrupt crude oil production and supply, leading to an increase in oil prices. Such developments may hinder inflation control efforts and have consequences for global economic growth.

Market Performance

The Nifty 50 began the day at 19,820.45, down from its previous close of 19,811.50. It witnessed intraday fluctuations, reaching a high of 19,840.95 and a low of 19,659.95. Ultimately, the Nifty 50 closed with a 140-point loss, marking a 0.71% decline at 19,671.10. The Sensex opened at 66,473.74, decreased from the previous close of 66,428.09. It had an intraday high of 66,475.27 and a low of 65,842.10, concluding the day at 65,877.02 with a 551-point drop (0.83%).

Market Impact and Global Concerns

Geopolitical tensions, especially the Israel-Hamas conflict, have sparked uncertainty in the global market. The potential implications of this conflict spreading into a larger regional crisis involving proxy armed groups, notably Hezbollah, could have far-reaching effects.

Aside from global concerns, Indian investors are keeping a close watch on Q2 earnings and macroeconomic indicators.

The Middle East tensions have led to instability in energy prices, with Brent crude rising above $92.5 by the day’s close. A possible impact on inflation and interest rates, along with the ongoing withdrawal of FII funds, is a concern for the Indian market.
