Indian equity markets lost on account of weakness in global markets and
volatility around the expiry of Apr 2019 derivative contracts. Rising oil
prices and a weak rupee burdened investor sentiment. The rupee dropped
to more than seven-week low as rise in oil prices led to fears over inflation
and fiscal deficit.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 0.83% and
0.72%, respectively, to close at 38,730.86 and 11,641.80, respectively. S&P
BSE Mid-Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap lost 0.58% and 0.05%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 1082 scrips advancing
and 1431 scrips declining. A total of 145 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Basic Materials was the major gainer,
up 0.34%, followed by S&P BSE Oil & Gas, up 0.11%, and S&P BSE Realty,
up 0.1%. All the other sectors lost. S&P BSE Telecom was the major loser,
down 2.26%, followed by S&P BSE Metal and S&P BSE Bankex, down
1.91% and 1.02%, respectively.
As per media reports, India’s crude oil production fell 4.15% to 34.2
million tonne (MT) in FY19 as against 35.68 MT in FY18. However, natural
gas production marginally rose of 0.69%. Cumulative natural gas
production in FY19 stood at 32873.37 million metric standard cubic meter
(MMSCM) as against 32649.31 MMSCM in FY18.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has sold its entire stake in the National
Housing Bank (NHB) and the National Bank for Agriculture & Rural
Development (Nabard) to government for Rs. 1,450 crore and Rs. 20 crore,
respectively. Thus, NHB and Nabard has now become a fully government-
owned entity.
According to a report by the Reserve Bank of India, customer complaints
against banks rose 25% to 1.63 lakh in FY18. Majority of the complaints
were related to unfair practices. Disposal rate stood at 96.5% compared to
92% in the previous year.
According to the Attitudes Survey of ultra high net worth individuals
(UHNWI), around 28% of India’s ultra high net worth individuals are
optimistic towards wealth creation in 2019. Despite being an election
year, they believe that economic and political factors will be favourable
for wealth creation.
Asian equity markets ended mixed because of a mixed bag of U.S.
earnings. China delaying policy-easing measures and caution ahead of the
release of U.S. first-quarter gross domestic product data kept investors
anxious. Today (as of Apr 26), Asian markets opened almost on a lower
note following weakness in Dow Jones in the last session. Nikkei fell 0.60%
while Hangseng marginally rose 0.08% (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed on a lower note after
merger talks between Germany’s top two lenders reportedly ended in
failure. Further, investors remained cautious due to weak quarterly
earnings results from a few European majors.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed on mixed note following a
volatile session. Steep decline in one of the major U.S. diversified
manufacturer due to weak quarterly results for first quarter 2019 weighed
on the indices. Also, the U.S. major lowered its outlook for 2019. However,
gains in couple of major information technology stocks restricted the

India VIX declined 2.83% to 23.0400 compared with 23.7125 at the
previous trading session.
Bond yields moved up with the steep surge in crude oil prices and
depreciation in the local currency. These factors raised inflationary
concerns and dampened the bond market sentiment.
Yield on the 10-year benchmark paper (7.26% GS 2029) rose 2 bps at
7.45% compared with the previous session’s close of 7.43% after trading
in a range of 7.43% to 7.48%.

The India rupee moved down after crude oil prices saw a steep surge as
U.S. tightens Iran sanctions. Rise in crude prices also made importers step
up greenback purchases, which further dragged the domestic currency.
The euro depreciated as it continued to reel under the pressure of
Germany’s business climate index that fell for Apr 2019 and raised growth
fears. Besides, political instability in Spain due to electoral uncertainty
also weighed down on the single currency.
Gold prices moved up following feeble economic data from South Korea
and Germany.
Brent crude prices gained in anticipation of a tighter market condition
following U.S.’s decision of terminating all exemptions and asking
countries to halt importing Iranian oil from May 2019.
Bank of Japan kept its monetary policy unchanged and maintained
interest rate at -0.1% on current accounts that financial institutions
maintain at the bank. It stated that the interest rates will remain very low
for an extended period, thereby indicating uncertainties concerning
economy and prices, and the impact of the scheduled consumption tax
hike. The bank stated that it will purchase government bonds so that the
yield of 10-year JGBs will remain at around 0%. Despite being impacted
by the slowdown in overseas economies for the time being, the central
bank expects Japanese economy to continue its moderate expansion. It
downwardly revised its real GDP growth outlook to 0.8% and 0.9% from
0.9% and 1% for FY20 and FY21, respectively.
