Why Did Global Share Markets Fall?

Rising Tensions Between Ukraine and Russia

  • Russia has been consolidating its troops along the Ukraine border for quite some time now.
  • The tussle around the Donbas region in Eastern Ukraine has escalated to a worrying level.
  • The USA has been trying to ease the tensions but Russian President Vladimir Putin has not yet agreed to any terms and conditions.
  • Putin is objecting against the admission of Ukraine in NATO.
  • According to various media reports, experts believe that a war between the two countries may be possible. This has shaken the global markets.

Crude Oil Prices

  • The crude oil prices have touched their highest levels since October 2014.
  • The oil was trading at $88.76 per barrel.
  • This has pushed the inflation rates to a new level.
  • Inflation figures in the USA have been the highest in the last 32 years.

Interest Rates By Federal Reserve

  • Due to high retail inflation rates in the USA, the Federal Reserve is soon expected to raise the interest rates.
  • This may lead to a correction in the global markets as the money will find its way into bank accounts from the stock exchanges.
  • This too has led to instability in the global markets.

FPI Outflow

  • FPIs in India have been on a selling spree for the past week.
  • Between January 19th and 24th, FPIs withdrew Rs 10,350 crore from Indian markets, according to the Bhaskar report.
  • Out of this, over Rs 7,000 crore have been withdrawn in the last two days only.

What to expect next?

The report also added that till the Budget 2022 is presented, Indian markets will be guided by global trends. After February 1, 2022, when the Union Budget 2022 is presented by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, the markets may be guided by the new policy decisions. Although, the bear market may prove beneficial for the people looking for an opportunity to invest in large-cap companies.
