According to a major domestic credit rating agency, government
support is imperative to implement Minimum Indicative Export Quota
(MIEQ) scheme. In Mar 2018, the F ood and C onsumer affairs (FCA)
Ministry gave a pproval for export of 2 million metric tonnes (MT) of sugar
during sugar year (SY) 2018, under the MIEQ scheme. The higher than
expected sugar production in SY 2018 resulted in a fall in sugar prices.
Surplus stocks could be cleared and the cash flow of th e mills could be
improved. In turn, the s ugar mills would be able to clear dues to farmers.
Data from the Employees’ Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) and the
National Pension System (NPS) showed that a minimum of 2.2 million
formal jobs were added in the six months to Feb 2018. In the government
sector 350,000 accounts were opened under NPS.
Data from the Commerce Department showed that India's global trade
grew 16.32% to $767.9 billion in 201718. India’s global trade in the same
period of the previous year s too d at $66 0.2 billion. India's total trade wit h
Latin American countries also witnessed a growth of 19.63%.
According to Wo rld Bank, prices of energy co mmodities like coal, oil and
natural gas are expected to grow by a significant 20% in 2018. Increase in
prices of energy commodities may adversely affect the growth prospects
of the Indian economy as the country is heavily dependent on imports of
such energy commodities. World Bank forecasted that oil prices may
average at $65 per barrel in 2018, higher than $53 per barrel in 2017 due
to strong global demand and restrain on production by oil producing
companies. World Bank also estimated metal prices may rise 9% in 2018
due to supply constraints and rise in demand.
Yes Bank posted increase in standalone net profit by 29% to Rs. 11.79
billion in the quarter ended Mar 2018 as against net profit of Rs. 9.14
billion in quarter ended M ar 2017. The net interest income and non

Asian markets traded in mixed on concerns over rising U.S. bond yields
and upcoming policy rate decisions from the Eu ropean Central Ba nk (ECB)
and the Bank of Japan (BoJ). However, some respite was seen following
positive cues from overnight U.S. markets, improved crude oil prices and
upbeat earning reports from some corporate heavyweights. Today (As of
April 27), Asian markets opened higher following gains on the Wall Street
overnight. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng index were trading higher 0.62%
and 0.48%, respectively (as at 8 a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European market rose following positive start on
the Wall Street and as investors monitored a fresh batch of corporate
earnings. Meanwhile, the ECB left its key interest rates, asset purchases
and forward guidance unchanged, amid signs of softening growth
momentum in the euro zone area.
As per the last close, U.S markets moved up strongly following better
than expected Mar quarter results from several major companies. Market
sentiments were further boosted after initial jobless claims fell to their
lowest level in nearly five decades in the week ended Apr 21.
Indian equity markets surged in the last trading hour after remaining
rangebound for the major part of the session. Lower than expected
corporate earning numbers from one of the IT majors, coupled with rising
10year U.S. Treasury yield, restricted market gains. Meanwhile, robust
quarterly earning numbers from a major private sector lender helped
markets to gain momentum.

0.45% to clo se at 34,713. 60 and 10,617.80, respectively. S&P BSE Small
