India equity markets closed in the green amid reports that the Monetary
Policy Committee is expected to cut rates in the first bi-monthly monetary
policy decision for FY20 on Apr 4, 2019. Strong foreign fund inflows
supported buying interest. Further, positive global cues driven by upbeat
manufacturing data from China and the U.S. for Mar 2019 strengthened
investor confidence in the global economy. However, weakness in rupee,
surge in crude oil prices and easing of Nikkei India Manufacturing
Purchasing Managers' Index for Mar 2019 restricted the gains.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 grew 0.48% and
0.38% to close at 39,056.65 and 11,713.20, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-Cap
and S&P BSE Small Cap fell 0.04% and 0.18%, respectively.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Realty stood as the major gainer and
grew 2.66%, followed by S&P BSE Telecom that grew 1.54%. S&P BSE Auto
and S&P BSE Utilities grew 0.94% and 0.75%, respectively. S&P BSE
Information Technology and S&P BSE Power each grew 0.72%. Power
sector got a boost following reports that the Supreme Court has dismissed
RBI’s February 12, 2018 circular on bad loan resolution.
The Nikkei India Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) fell to
52.6 in Mar 2019 from 54.3 in Feb 2019. This marked six-months low.
Though increase in new orders was solid, it was slowest in six months.
Also, increase in production, input buying and employment were soft.
Subdued inflationary pressures, with rates of increase in input costs and
output charges below their respective long-run averages also led to the
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) will again swap up to $5 billion to infuse
durable liquidity in the system. This will take place in the next auction of
three-year tenure that will be held on Apr 23, 2019. This comes one
month after the first swap saw a huge response from banks. In the auction
held on Mar 26, 2019, $16.31 billion were offered by the market
participants against the notified amount of $5 billion.
The RBI has made changes to the disclosure norms for banks on material
divergences on provisioning. Now, the banks will have to disclose their
provisions if the divergence found is more than 10% of the bank’s profit
before provisioning and contingencies. However, earlier, banks had to
disclose additional provisioning requirements if divergences exceeded
15% of the published net profits after tax. No changes to the norms on
divergence on gross non-performing assets have been made and it
continues to be a material divergence of 15%, as found by the auditors of
RBI and as reported by the bank.
As per media reports, a major global rating agency has revised Tata
Steel's outlook from stable to positive. This was done based on the
stability of international steel prices and less chances of the company
acquiring the debt-laden Bhushan Power and Steel thereby keeping Tata
Steel’s credit profile strong.
Zydus Cadila announced that it has received tentative nod from the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) to market its Mirabegron
extended-release tablets in the strengths of 25 mg and 50 mg.
As per media reports, Mswipe Technologies has raised $30 million from
its existing investors Falcon Edge, B Capital, Epiq Capital and DSG Growth
Most of the Asian markets gained following improved manufacturing
data from China and U.S. Progress over U.S. -China trade talks and
expectations of more stimulus measures from China helped the
sentiments. Today (as of Apr 3), Asian markets opened on a higher note.
Investors remained focused on trade negotiations between U.S. and China
that is set to continue in Washington. Nikkei and Hangseng grew 0.62%
and 0.87%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets managed to closed higher
following continued optimism over upbeat manufacturing data from U.S.
and China in Mar 2019. However, uncertainty about Brexit restricted the
As per the last close, U.S markets closed on a mixed note post volatile
session due to uncertainty about the near-term outlook for the markets.
Further, steep decline in durable goods orders in Mar 2019 dampened
market sentiment. Investors remained cautious as they likely looked for
some material developments in U.S. and China trade talks. However, gains
in biotechnology, chemical and gold stocks boosted the indices.
