Indian equity markets gained at the last hour of a volatile session. U.S.

As part of the Indo‐Pacific approach of the U.S. administration, the U.S.
is "working hard" with the Indian government to provide the nation with
possibilities to expand its economy, U.S. Secretary of State said. These
remarks have come after a delegation of the U.S. Trade Representatives
travelled to India for talks on bilateral trade issues, including tax and
India's Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) discovered that nearly
Rs. 500 crore agricultural income was permitted by income‐tax officials as
exempt without proper verification. For the year ended Mar 2018, the
auditor's study on direct taxes concentrated on exempt income— both
agricultural and charitable trusts gained. CAG has suggested that the I‐T
department review all cases where agricultural income exceeds a certain
limit say Rs. 10 lakh to ensure that only genuine taxpayers are
permitted exemption.
Asian equity markets fell as North Korea performed its second arms test
in less than a week and the U.S. President’s trade threats cast a shadow
over the destiny of Shanghai's recent round of trade talks between China
and U.S. Investors also awaited the conclusion of U.S. Federal Reserve’s
two‐day meeting later in the day and the post‐meeting press conference
of the Fed chairman for hints on the route of policy. Today (as of Aug 1),
Asian markets opened lower as South Korea’s exports fell in Jul 2019,
hinting at slowdown in tech companies. While Nikkei was trading up
0.09%, Hang Seng was down 0.42%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
U.S. markets fell after the Federal Reserve chairman hinted that the
bank may not further cut rates in 2019. The chairman’s comments came
after the central bank decided to cut rates by 25 basis points, in line with
expectations, at its policy meet held on Jul 30‐31, 2019.
European markets were mixed as investors looked forward to the
interest rate decision by the U.S. Federal Reserve and the release of
earnings by major companies.
