The finance ministry is depending on central public sector enterprises
(CPSE) merger and acquisitions and share buybacks of state-owned
companies to achieve the Rs 80,000-crore disinvestment target for FY19.
The government has raised in excess of Rs. 9,600 crore via initial public
offerings of three CPSEs and a tranche of Bharat-22 ETF in the first six
months of FY19.
Coal India has decided to raise the tenure of fuel supply agreements
(FSAs) with the steel industry to 10 years. It is doing this to reduce the
sector's dependence on imports. The new FSA tenure will apply to the
fourth tranche of auction of coking coal linkages to be held shortly.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has announced more steps to increase
liquidity flows to non-banking financial companies. RBI has permitted
banks to use government securities equal to their incremental
outstanding credit to NBFCs, over and above their outstanding credit to
them as on Oct 19, to meet liquidity coverage ratio requirements. NBFCs
have come under pressure after a series of defaults by a leading
infrastructure and finance company.
The government could appoint a new chief economic advisor (CEA) in
the coming one or two months, according to media reports. A finance
ministry-appointed search committee is being seen to finalise the list of
suitable candidates soon. The government had on Jun 30, 2018, invited
applications for CEA appointment on deputation basis after the then
incumbent’s term ended.
India has imposed anti-dumping duties of up to $185.51 per tonne for
five years on particular varieties of Chinese steel. The step has been taken
to protect domestic players from cheap imports from China. The revenue
department put the duty after receiving recommendations of the
Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR). Leading steel companies
had jointly filed an application before DGTR for investigations and levying
of anti-dumping duties.

Indian equity markets ended the volatile week in red because of weak
global cues and liquidity concerns. China’s gross domestic product came in
at the lowest level since 2009 amid the trade dispute with the U.S.,
dragging markets in the region down.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 1.33% and
1.43% to close at 34,315.63 and 10,303.55, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-Cap
declined 1.10%, while S&P BSE Small Cap fell 1.32%.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 817 scrips advancing
and 1777 scrips declining. A total of 152 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, only two sectors gained. S&P BSE Fast Moving
Consumer Goods was the major gainer, up 0.41%, followed by S&P BSE
Metal, up 0.1%. S&P BSE Energy was the major loser, down 2.75%,
followed by S&P BSE Information Technology and S&P BSE Teck, down
2.6% and 2.41%, respectively.
Asian equity markets were mixed over China’s GDP coming in at the
lowest level since 2009 and the Italian budget crisis. Also, concerns over
rising U.S. interest rates and U.S.-Saudi dispute kept markets wary. China
managed to tide over the GDP numbers after the country’s securities
regulator announced a series of steps to help the market. Today (as of Oct
22), Asian market opened mixed. Rally in Chinese stocks boosted market,
while mixed result in the Wall Street and political uncertainty in Australia
weighed on investor’s sentiments. Nikkei was trading down 0.25%a and
Hang Seng was trading up 1.32% (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed mixed. Concerns over
Italy's controversial budget plans weighed on investor’s sentiment.
However, decline in U.K. budget deficit in Sep 2018, lowest Sep deficit
since 2007, supported markets in Britain.
As per the last close, U.S. markets closed mixed. Rally in Chinese stocks
and upbeat quarterly earnings by few big companies boosted investors
sentiments. However, concerns about rising interest rates and tension
between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia continued to weigh on the markets.
