Global credit conditions more negative amid rising borrowing costs, slower eco growth: Moody’s
- Moody’s Investors Service on Thursday said global credit conditions have turned more negative amid rising borrowing costs, protracted Russia-Ukraine conflict and slower economic growth.

The index has surpassed its key level of 15735 but there is pressure at higher levels of 15888-16000. Overall we expect the index to trade in a broader range with capped upside.

New-age stocks a total avoid: Pankay Pandey, ICICIDirect
As of now it is a complete avoid. Even with the correction, they are still sort of expensive and we are still not very sure about the path to profitability. We really do not have that courage to look for the next four, five years to see what kind of numbers they pan out and on the basis of that recommend a buy. This space is quite dynamic. We are still watching for models where the path to profitability is clear. That is the first thing we will watch and then the valuation will come.
