Indian equity markets fell, witnessing the worse session of 2019 so far,
as investors became concerned over a falling rupee and rising crude oil
prices. The rupee fell to a one-month low and crude oil prices were at near
six-month highs. Crude oil gained after media reports said that the U.S.
could further tighten sanctions against Iran over oil imports. U.S. had
allowed big importers of Iranian oil, including India and China, some
leeway from the sanctions against the Gulf country. But now U.S. could
ask them to stop importing from Iran or face U.S. sanctions.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 1.26% and
1.35%, respectively, to close at 38,645.18 and 11,594.45, respectively. S&P
BSE Mid-Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap lost 1.53% and 1.44%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 714 scrips advancing
and 1799 scrips declining. A total of 184 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, only two sectors managed to gain. S&P BSE IT
was the major gainer, up 0.58%, followed by S&P BSE Teck, up 0.46%. S&P
BSE Oil & Gas was the major loser, down 3.2%.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) may soon start discussions to stop from
the convention of reducing key policy rate by 25 basis points or multiples
thereof, say media reports. The discussions will be held with stakeholders
like lenders, domain experts and within the central bank. "There is a need
to consider interest rate adjustments, not necessarily in the conventional
way of 25 bps or multiples thereof. This idea needs further debate and
discussion," RBI governor had told the Monetary Policy Committee earlier
this month. RBI could seek comments from banks on their views and
reasons of holding that view with empirical evidence.
According to a foreign brokerage, the committee on the appropriate
capital reserves for the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) could identify an excess
buffer of up to Rs. 3 lakh crore. The panel is headed by a former RBI
governor. The buffer will include the excess capital in contingency
reserves and revaluation reserves, the report said. Till Sep 2018, the
excess capital with the central bank stood at Rs. 9.6 lakh crore. This
includes the excess capital in contingency reserves and also revaluation
As per media reports, forensic audit of more than 200 companies facing
corporate insolvency resolution action under the Insolvency and
Bankruptcy Code (IBC) has thrown irregularities of more than Rs. 1 lakh
crore, which may also include possible diversion of funds. The
implementation authority of IBC, the ministry of corporate affairs, is
expected to initiate action against the promoters, directors and even
auditors in some cases.
According to a B2B metal e-commerce company, India's coal import
increased 8.8% to 233.56 million tonne in 2018-19. Coal imports were at
214.61 million tonne in 2017-18, according to provisional data by the
company, which is joint venture between a leading private sector
company and a public sector behemoth. The data is based on monitoring
of vessels' positions and data received from shipping companies.
Markets for You
Asian equity markets were mixed as investors stayed on the sidelines
because of absence of any major positive triggers and some of the
markets being closed for Easter Monday. Investors took stock of recent
data indicating global growth could be stabilising. However, rise in crude
oil prices came in as a dampener. Media reports said the U.S. could ask all
importers of Iranian oil to end their purchases or face sanctions. Today (as
of Apr 23), Asian markets opened lower as investors were cautious ahead
of the release of earnings from major corporates. Both Nikkei and Hang
Seng were trading down 0.41% and 0.60%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
European markets remained closed on Apr 22 on account of Easter
Monday holiday.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed mixed as traders seemed
reluctant to make any significant moves ahead of the release of a slew of
earnings from big corporates. However, sharp increase in crude oil prices
boosted the energy sector.
