India equity markets closed in the red after the Monetary Policy
Committee maintained its “neutral” stance in the first bi-monthly policy
meeting for FY20. Markets had already factored in a 25-basis point cut.
Further, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) lowered the growth forecast for
FY20 as it noted that a slowdown in production and import of capital
goods has weakened the domestic investment activity to some extent,
thereby weighing on the market sentiment.
Further, decline in Nikkei India Services Purchasing Managers' Index
(PMI) for Mar 2019 took a toll over the investor sentiment which was
followed by fall in manufacturing PMI for Mar 2019 as per a data released
on Apr 2, 2019. Weakness in rupee added to the losses. Also, investors
remained cautious over soft global cues on latest Brexit developments and
ongoing trade discussions U.S. and China.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 fell 0.49% and
0.39% to close at 38,684.72 and 11,598.00, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-Cap
and S&P BSE Small Cap fell 0.14% and 0.32%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 1,476 scrips declining
and 1,047 scrips advancing. A total of 176 scrips remained unchanged.
The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) in its first bi-monthly monetary
policy review for FY20, lowered key policy repo rate by 25 bps to 6.00%
from 6.25%. Subsequently, the reverse repo stands adjusted at 5.75%
while the marginal standing facility rate and the bank rate stood at 6.25%.
However, the MPC decided to continue with its neutral stance on its
monetary policy. This is the second consecutive rate but by the MPC under
the new chief of Reserve Bank of India (RBI). MPC is of the view that the
domestic economy is facing some challenges primarily on the global front.
MPC, after taking into consideration a normal monsoon, downgraded its
retail inflation forecasts to 2.4% in the fourth quarter of FY19 from the
earlier projection of 2.8% and to be in the range of 2.9% to 3.0% for the
first half of FY20 from its earlier projection of 3.2% to 3.4%. MPC expects
retail inflation in the range of 3.5% to 3.8% in the second half of FY20.
MPC downgraded its growth forecasts of the Indian economy for FY20 to
7.2% from the earlier projection of 7.4%. For the first half of FY20 as well
MPC expects the growth of the domestic economy in the range of 6.8% to
7.1% from the earlier projection of 7.2% to 7.4%. In the second half of
FY20, MPC projected the growth of the Indian economy to be in the range
of 7.3% to 7.4%.
The Nikkei India Services Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) fell to 52.0 in
Mar 2019 from 52.5 in Feb 2019. This marked a six-month low on account
of slower expansion in new work. Additionally, the pace of staff hiring was
weakest since Sep 2018. However, optimism regarding the year-ahead
outlook for business activity strengthened for the second consecutive
month. Seasonally-adjusted Nikkei India Composite PMI Output Index fell
to 52.7 in Mar from 53.8 in Feb.
Markets for You
Asian markets traded in mixed as investors remained optimist over the
high-level trade talks between U.S. President and Chinese Vice Premier.
Although, concerns over Brexit and upcoming U.S. jobs data restricted the
gains. Today (as of Apr 05), Asian markets opened rose as investors waited
for developments amid ongoing negotiations on the U.S.-China trade deal.
Nikkei was trading up 0.11% (as at 8.a.m. IST) and Hang Seng was closed
due to a public holiday.
As per the last close, European markets closed almost lower following
decline in Germany’s factory orders in Feb 2019 and reports indicating
that Italy may lower its GDP forecast for 2019. Investors were also
cautious ahead of U.S. jobs report for Mar 2019 due today.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed almost higher as investors
waited for more news on a potential trade deal between China and the
U.S. Reports showing unexpected fall in initial jobless claims for the week
ended Mar 30 also supported market.
